Is everyone forgetting that weekend 2 will have more time to plan out where they want to go since the schedule will be released more than 2 days before the actual concert for them?
Plus, if you really want to (I wont) you can look up and see who performed well and who was just a raging sack of shit so you'll know who to avoid and who to go see. Wish i had that kind of foresight two years ago when i thought that Perry Farrel would play some Jane's Addiction songs, or at least get on the stage with more than 20 minutes left in the show.
And also we wont have to deal with tools like this guy, quoting outdated pre-socratic philosophy and Kansas all fucking weekend long

The "present" is a slippery little concept, since a snapshot is a kind of lie that we all agree to. Nothing stands still.

Only for a moment, then the moment's gone
All my dreams
Pass before my eyes, a curiosity
Dust in the wind
All we are is dust in the wind..."
im going weekend 1, but who cares... grass? is that why people think its gonna be better
spent last summer at glastonbury, had the best time ever, and was up to my arse in mud
come to think of it ive had very few dry festival experiences, and even fewer with anything resembling grass
im tired of hearing this, ever notice how clean the grass looks on Saturday? and even by Sunday?
There are huge crews that clean up the Polo Fields every night after the show is over.
These are gonna have about 5 days to clean up the Polo Fields for W2.
Im pretty sure you won't be able to tell the difference between the grass from W1 and W2
sounds like somebody's never been to Stagecoach. the grass is dead. but there it makes sense.
FRI: Squarepusher - Nero - Flying Lotus - Keys N Krates - AC/DC - Alabama Shakes
SAT: Swans - Gaslamp Killer Experience - Andrew McMahon - Antemasque - LIGHTS
SUN: Gesaffelstein - Claude VonStroke - St. Vincent - Panda Bear - Dubfire - Annie Mac
Well, if people want to be arrogant and pretentious about the weekend differences:: At least I could pay cash for my tickets instead of having to put them on layaway because I was too in debt buying a new Iphone, Ipad, and other yuppie bullshit. But I'll only say that if someone wants to challenge me on it. I honestly just wanted to go to Coachella with my best friend and enjoy a mini vacation.
Some of the headliners are only doing this festival or a handful over the three month period, all shows should be FRESH!
"But Mouse, you are not alone,
In proving foresight may be vain:
The best laid schemes of mice and men
Go often askew,
And leaves us nothing but grief and pain,
For promised joy!"
Well, coming from someone who went to Weekend 1 this year, I think my friends and I are going to Weekend 2 next year. For one, we're fans of the heat, and it was far too cold W1. Second, we misses some solid guest appearances that wouldn't have happened were we returning for Weekend 2. W2ers get to read all about which shows were worth seeing and can plan their days out far better.
