Who's going to Coachella?

Who's going and what band/DJ are ya most excited about? Have you been before or is this your first time? Though the lineup is all around good this year, no one that I'm a particular fan of. Kinda sad the chemical brothers aren't there. I heard that there will be a performance based on my favorite book/CD (Wild Animus) there, sort of performance art, but it'll be taking place in the crowd, very much looking forward to that, should be some randy weird horny-goat trippy costumes and stuff. The CD "Wild Animus" is up on imeem now, you can listen to it all for free. You can also win free tix to Coachella here: Wild Animus

I only care about the Jesus and Mary Chain and they are playing the night before in Pomona.

So no go for me!

This will be the third year in a row going. I'm not quite as excited about the lineup as I was for the past two years, but I am really looking forward to seeing Arcade Fire, Interpol, Bjork, Ratatat, and Explosions in the Sky.

Flying in from Dallas on Thursday and staying in LA over the weekend. Going to Coachella Friday only. First time going! Very much looking forward to Bjork and some of the smaller bands.

Is it a nightmare getting in and out of the festival from a traffic perspective?

It predictably slows down as you get close but traffic isn't too bad IMO.

i doubt it will be a problem for you since you're going friday only. last year (saturday) was a nightmare because i got there late. freeway traffic was normal (91 is always a mess) but once you exited, it was endless stop and go for, iirc, an hour.

First time heading out to Coachella on Friday.
Question: Do people bring their own chairs? I've got "GAS" with seat numbers. Looks like there are different stages. Do people just wander from stage to stage?

Thanks.

I would assume GAS means 'General Admission Seating'.

I've never been to a festival where there were actual seats, sans Lollapalooza at Nissan Pavillion (ick!)

Coachella takes place on a pollo field I doubt there are seats... ??

no chairs, and yes.
only the 'outdoor stage' had bleachers, and it wasn't many.
you should really check out the map:

Excited to see Infected Mushroom live, though, just looked at the lineup and realized they'll be there. I'm always more excited about the small acts like weird wild animus ram dancers. Not interested in Bjork. I guess RATM will be interesting, haven't really lisrtened to them in years.
