Please help me. I purchased weekend two wristbands for Coachella and am unclear on whether weekend two is actually going to be okay. I’m traveling there with a girlfriend, my third Coachella and her first, and she is unavailable to go weekend one. I’m picturing no lush polo field grass left and performers that aren’t taking it as seriously as weekend one. Thoughts?? I know I’m spoiled as fuck, but $400 is a lot to spend if it’s going to be far inferior.
Are you kidding me? The second weekend is always better. Always. The preening children have all gone home, the artists are trying to top their previous week’s performance, and everyone is more chill.
I’ll admit that the first weekend has more energy, but the crowd is also tainted with an aggressive self-absorption that can easily bleed some of the fun out of it. That goes doubly for this year’s first weekend, because it will be filled with a bunch of Gen X pilgrims who absolutely positively have to be at the first reunion shows of LCD and GNR.
Nah, if I go this year, it will only be to the second weekend. Trust me on this. You accidentally made the right decision.
