I am tempted to say a week. That would be amazing. But in all seriousness, I will say 3.
This was my first year, and after day 2 all I could think was... thank god they added a third day! After 2 days all I wanted was more. After 3 days all I wanted was sleep and a bed... and water.

From a camping perspective, I could definitely go for an extra day or two. I always feel like it's a bit of a waste to go through setting up a tent and a little mini habitat for just three days. If I had been staying there for four days and five nights I would also have made more of an effort to set up a nice camping spot, with a shade awning and maybe a camping pad (my friend and I had a tent and sleeping bags and nothing else. No pillows or anything). It would have meant more to carry, but ultimately being more comfortable as well.
We are (mostly) adults on here and those of us who want to have it 4 days should have that option. There are so many bands that need to be heard plus the Coachella environment is wonderful enough to sustain another day.
3 days was fine, I didn't think I would be able to do it after being so tired from 2 days last year but I did it...my feet and legs were swollen tho, it looked like I had kankles for like 2 days, it was unreal!
4 days will be such an awesome experience. GV should just roll the dice and just do it. I hope Paul Tollett will consider this position. I still claim credit from a couple of years ago when I lobbied Coachella on a message board thread to switch their food court booths from Coke to Pepsi after Coachella 2005, and in 2006 and 2007 Coachella served Pepsi products.
