My person is getting something thrown together I think. I started it super early, felt like it was a good start then basically just put it on my 'to do' list, which is code for 'shit I should do, but will put off until it really needs to be done'.
Tomorrow will be the day of work, hopefully it turns out at least somewhat coherent...
We were torn on where to stay and actually found Yurts at Eagle Vista campground, next to the festival. They have 2 versions, a hotel-like one on their site, which Brand Live take every year, and a few tent only ones, hard sides and a dome top, 16 feet across with a patio. They are reasonably priced too, might be worth checking out if you decide to go.
We ended up going with the vip camping anyways as we wanted to be in the festival grounds and we spend most of the time lounging around the camp site.
I asked them who would be feeding me the grapes and was told that position has yet to be filled.
Wasn't a problem at all man, it was good to meet ya.
I'll be doing VIP camping as well (basically against my will, last time I ever make a promise without seeing the lineup first) so we'll probably see you again this year given how small the area should be, I heard there was only 50 spots sold.
That option you listed sounds pretty awesome though, I'll have to give it some thought in future years, though there's a good chance I may be done with this festival in the future.
If your only concern is money, it is probably cheaper for 2 people to fly to LA and rent from there. Last year our rental from LAX came to just over $200 to and from Coachella. Flights were $250 return for me from Bellingham for myself. It is also way faster than driving all the way, obviously.
I have nothing against Lorde as a person, just her music and the vast Industrial-Commercial complex that decided she would be the next Grammy winner.
Lorde is great catchy pop. I can't wait until she sings the line at Coachella, "I'm kind of over gettin' told to throw my hands up in the air, So there." I'm going to throw my hands up in the air and scream like a high school girl.
Can we hold hands? You're a lot taller than me, so you might have to hold your hands a bit lower in the air. It might ruin it. Nevermind, it was a dumb idea anyway.
