There was sooo many.

What is it with the whole indian theme??
I like it, I fully endorse getting dressed up for Coachella in any form. WE are also a part of what creates the festival atmosphere, and while the indian theme is a tad overdone I couldn't help but smile everytime a band of Coachellites would run by dancing and giving war cries. They were out in force Saturday and I attribute that mostly to Animal Collective.
A little off topic but what was up with all of the hipster mustaches this year?
I didn't notice very many last year
Yeah, there must have been some bro convention in which they all decided to wear those stupid things. Oh, to have been a fly on the wall.
At least in *my* awesome opinion.
i was laying in the grass resting after a set, and a headdress wearing hipster girl kicked me right in the shoulder and when i turned to look at her she just looks at me and shrugs then just keeps going. so a big "fuck you" to her

I had never seen anyone wearing Indian feathers before I went to Coachella. After Coachella, I can honestly say I never want to see anyone wearing Indian feathers again. I didn't even realize that was a fashion statement. No one over here wears that shit.
same for the boat captain's hat also sported heavily by crackers. Tie em all to the anchor.
What's interesting about the captain's hat is that everyone seemed to have the exact same hat, with the same crest on it. Is there literally only one captain's hat available on the costume hat market these days? Still, it's better than the feathers.
I think it's disrespectful...
I'd think there were a lot more things to care about than whether or not someone is wearing feathers on their head. I just don't get how other people dressing up and having fun can bother anyone...
There are tons of things to care about. This is one a few irritable people (myself included) find time to care about because of how moronic these oblivious retards look and prance about. The only people more annoying than them this weekend were the countless idiots in furry hats (guedita being the sole exception because I know she was doing it as a parody) and anyone in a sombrero, particularly if they were white. Why is this always the retort of someone who isn't bothered by something others complain about, as if it takes so much fucking time and effort to care & spend no more than a couple minutes typing a post about how irritating one finds this particular thing? When the feathers on their heads obscure your view of the band you're wishing to see, particularly when they shove their way in front of you during the middle of the set only to stand there and talk about bullshit instead of actually pay attention to & enjoy the performance, then it becomes bothersome.
I am a lot more concerned with the good times at the festival and just think its a bit sad that anyone would let someone else detract from their good time simply because of their attire.
By having this "live and let live" attitude, you goddamn hippies are really just sticking up for the rude assholes who seem to be the antithesis of the people you're trying to be.
If people are chatting during a set, or just being general annoyances, I give them 1 song (2 at the most) before I say something. I used to put up with it, but it's changed over the past couple of years.
But, back on the OP's topic, I also hate crackers wearing stupid shit.
You guys really need to relax. I hope this is just BS message board hater talk, because if you are really getting this agitated at the festival you lead miserable lives and I feel bad for you.
Feel free to get in front of me and chat all you like during the festival. Chances are I won't notice because I'll be dancing away and having a blast. Extremely unlikely I will be pissed at anyone doing anything that isn't physically affecting me.
What's wrong with live and let live? I have to deal with all of the people with a stick in their ass just standing around acting like they hate life and telling anyone having a good time to "be quite."
fairly certain Grandma really wants to see them scalped
What kind of miserable lives do these people have that they can't just let go for a weekend and soak in the music? Instead of having to re-cap their entire weeks while someone like PJ Harvey is performing slow and beautiful music.
Your version of fun and opinion on what it is to have a stick up your ass during a show is different than mine. I love to dance, air drum, and sing along if it seems understood to do so (like during Arcade Fire's "Wake Up."). I can also have fun, though, standing still and soaking in the amazing music at a Sigur Ros show. I don't have to exhibit A.D.D. whenever there's a slow song. I'm capable of relaxing and really letting the music take me on a journey. Assholes who feel like soft songs are just breaks in which they can talk, seem incapable of letting go.
What's the point of going to a show/set if you're going to talk the whole time?
I am on the team that hates life and would like you to be quite.
