Coachella Day 4

The final day is here. I start off by bringing down the tent. We gather our thing and have our last meal here at coachella. Once everything is packed we make our way into the venue for the last time. Surprisingly we get in quickly and enjoy our last day.

We catch Duran Duran who put on one hell of a show! Huge sound and loads of experience, they don't disappoint. then we catch The Strokes, great performers as well. They would be better if they just kept quiet. After them we close the night with Kanye West. Say what you will I know I do. He puts on one hell of a show! I find it hard to explain, so please look for footage on youtube or keep your eyes peeled for a coachella DVD or something soon.

Kane makes you believe that anything is possible. He himself says he's not that great of a singer (obviously) but hes still at the top. He inspires people as well as entertain. Thanks for the memories coachella. Its a harsh experience but worth the pain. Till next time, I will plan this third one a lot better. Bring it on Indio! Day 4 is over.

Coachella Day 3

Today started off with some bad vibes. There was tension and it felt as if I had cabin fever, almost like a paranoid feeling. I think the combination of heat and a lack of cool air had gotten to me and I became frustrated. I would like to take this time to apologize to my cousin and girlfriend, thank you both for keeping your cool.

Later on before we headed into the venue I had my first shroom experience. Contrary to popular belief, everything seemed beautiful when they kicked in. If it wasn't for them I wouldn't have been pleasant to be around.

My experience was euphoric and I had complete control of who I was. To put simply I would like to quote a friend of mine. My buddy Justin said, "there's life, then there's life on shrooms". Everything is detailed and things seem to be "breathing". Lights seem like globes of colored water swirling around. It didn't help that they had this strange "mirage effect" in the air right above the water refill station. I thought I lost it but everyone else could see it too. What a relief?

I also ran into an old friend I hadn't seen in a long time. The same thing happened the last time I came to coachella. As the night comes to an end we make it to our tent and fall right asleep, the shrooms put you down like NyQuil. Day 3 is over.

Coachella Day 2

The morning is brutal, hot & relentless. To take a shower you better be ready to wait a half hour to and hour. The Porta Potties are sweat boxes that leave memories you can't erase. After waking up with the heat as your alarm, the only thing on your mind is water. You hydrate and you eat. Then you wait & wait & wait...

After we get ready we spray ourselves with sun screen & make our way to the venue. The lines to get in are brutal clusters of ignorant fist pumping individuals. Don't get me wrong some of them were nice, but it just felt like assholes were everywhere. We get through the inspection easily all three days, (everyone seemed to have a good hiding spot) if you know what I mean.

Once inside we figured out who we wanted to see and started our journey. The heat is mostly what's on peoples minds, or at least it was on mine all the time. We looked forward to seeing Beardyman and Caifanes. I don't recall who else we saw? Like I said earlier, "everyone had a good hiding spot". The one show that stuck on my mind all 3 days was Beardyman! Thanks to him had a hard time listening to Caifanes and crystal castles. Everything and everyone sounded like dubstep.

As the night came to an end, my ears were bumping, my skin was burnt and I realized that during the night I was trampled. My jaw was very sore and I discovered bruises on my arms and some scratches on the top of my forehead. Day 2 is now over.

Coachella Day 1

On the road to Coachella. My second time going. The feeling never changes. I'm always nervous and excited to be here. Upon arrival Libeth hands me a Stone Old Guardian, we drank it together. Warm bitter beer with high alcohol content. We got very buzzed from that Old Guardian and some other people realized they couldn't bring in glass bottles, so they handed us 6 Red Stripes! Drunk already and I haven't even set up camp yet.

They inspected the car to make sure we didn't bring anything illegal or not allowed on the camp grounds. Surprisingly the inspection was quick! If you really wanted to bring a huge bong and tons of drugs, you really could have. People did. I did. Maybe not tons but a good amount for 3 days!

We got settled into our 10 x 30 rectangular camping space. Dark and drunk as fuck I had to set up this huge tent and canopy. About an hour later maybe longer not sure, I finished the tent and canopy. After lots of frustration we finished and got in our tent and had something to eat. Before dinner we celebrated with a joint. We tried to go to sleep but everyone around us was awake partying. Mostly people playing beer pong... Day 1 officially over. Tomorrow Coachella!
