    Default How much time do you spend in Beer Gardens, Terrace etc?

    It sounds like some people camp out in beer barn / gardens a lot more than others. Iím curious to hear how much time of your day is spent there and for what reasons.

    For me, I donít think Iím ever killing time somewhere for the sake of killing time or avoiding crowds. With six stages + art + do lab + merch + other activities, there always seems to be something going on (let alone conflicts) that would draw me away from alcohol and food areas. Eating is generally fast and that's pretty much the only time I'll have a drink except if I'm exhausted, maybe catching a large act from one of the Beer Gardens near the Outdoor or Coachella stages.

    When I say a couple hours per day, I mean I wouldn't sacrifice a must see but I missed at least one act each day that I "wouldn't mind seeing." I didn't spend hours at a time there though, did I? I'm bad with time.

    Couple hours a day. Usually less, but I had more time on my hands this year.
    Anything is possible...

    In past years I always caught sets on the Outdoor and Coachella stages on the fence in the Heineken Beer Garden for at least 3-4 hours a day.

    This year, I spent a lot of time in the Beer Barn because the lineup was not that fetching but the kegs were.

    Missed some sets but shared some good times.

    Exactly as much time as it takes me to eat, or pound two or three drinks. There's rarely been a time when I'm just lounging around in there, always feels like I'd rather be out in the crowds by the stages.

    Spent more tome in there this year than ever. Loved the Absolut Mules. Caught some bands from both sides. Didn't miss anything I really wanted to see.

    This was my first Coachella. I loved the Beer Garden! It was a good place to just chill but still see the acts you wanted to see. My friends and I got a drink or 2 and then left. We stayed in there to watch a few people. It's nice because it's in between the Main Stage and Outdoor Stage. Half of my group wanted to see someone at the Main and the other half wanted to see someone at the Outdoor. You don't have to lose your group. It was very convenient.

    It was hard not to be carried away by the beer barn.

    I skimmed over this question and answered it wrong. I thought you were just asking how long people spend in the beer garden and didn't notice the Terrace part. Whoops. I don't go in the beer garden, but I DO get food sometimes.

    It really just depends what's going on and who I'm hanging out with. Last year I spent more time than I should have. Looking at the lineup for this year I have a feeling I'll be in the beer garden quite a bit. It's the best place to socialize when there are no acts you're too excited about seeing.

    Especially when you're drunk.

    We skipped about 5 sets over the weekend that we actually wanted to see just to drink. I'm hoping we won't take the same route this year.
