70 (short) thoughts from Coachella 2016, Day 1

1.Why am I in a car?

2. Oh yeah, I live here now

3. OH YEAH COCHELLA!

4. But first I need to find all the food

5. Look at me eating an Acai Bowl for breakfast at Coachella, damn I’m healthy

6. But not as healthy as those people doing group yoga

7. I bet they ate rainbows for breakfast

8. Maybe I’ll get my morning exercise in the form of the human foozeball table, or dodgeball…

9. Then again maybe I’ll just eat some more and dance to the bands later, because festival

10. TIME TO GET IN THERE!

11. All the staff are so excited

12. I wonder how much they’re paid to be this excited

13. Americans REALLY love random high fives

14. I’m excited but everyone just needs to chill the duck down for a second, the bands won’t even start for another hour

15. BUT ALSO OMG YAS I’M FINALLY AT COACHELLA

16. Oooh ferris wheel!

17. Naw, pretty flowers arranged in a giant ‘Besame Mucho’ sign

18. What’s even more exciting is that I can understand it. Lots of kisses indeed!

19. What’s that weird armpit thing in the middle of the field? Why are so many people lining up to get inside it?

20. Oooh pretty mirror sculpture, I’m going in

21. This is actually less exciting then I’d hoped…but a good view of the giant yellow chair sculptures

22. None of my bands are on for a while so I’ll just follow the group around

23. They’re taking me to a lot of hip hop…I’m regretting following the group around

24. I’m hungry again, stupid Acai Bowl

25. PIIIIZZZZAAAA

26. Back to hip hop, sigh

27. Time for Miami Horror! Aussie Aussie Aussie!

28. Thank god they’re in a tent, It’s a bit crazy hot out there

29. I’m pretty sure my head’s on fire, wish I had a hat

30. “Sometimes, when all that’s left remaaaains.” I love this song!

31. I need more food, and water, god I’m dehydrated

32. Maybe I’ll find the others at Years & Years

33. Aw, this singer is actually adorable, he’s so happy to be here

34. Olly Alexander, that’s his name. He’s making me so happy for him

35. OHMAGERD NEARLY TIME FOR OF MONSTERS AND MEN

36. But first The Kills

37. They’re actually pretty awesome, I didn’t know them much before

38. Everything is better live

Of Monsters and Men - Coachella 2016

40. Wait am I seeing Bjorn?

41. Amazing dress, all white and tasselled and hippie

42. I actually cannot deal with how identical Nanna looks to Björn

43. And goddamn, can she sing. So can Ragnar. They’re both adorable!!

44. LITTLE TALKS!!

45. These guys are owning today for sure

46. And my friends just left early for ASAP Rocky, idiots

47. Wah Monsters are done

48. I really don’t care for ASAP Rocky…time to climb that weird armpit sculpture thing

50. YAS no line

51. Where the hell am I?

52. I’m sure all these T.V. screens in separate, tiny rooms are profound, but I’m a little creeped out!

53. But daaamn this is an awesome view from the top, Coachella looks so cool all lit up

Light it up!

54. And there goes Rocky, doing his thing, hope my friends are having a good time

56. Oh equality rant, ok Rocky, you’re alright

57. My friends!

58. Aaaand I’m following them again, I’m such a sheep today. Who the hell is Rae Stremmurd?

60. Oh GOD it’s THIS lot.

61. Nope.

62. That’s about enough casual misogyny for one night, somebody please tell these young girls they don’t have to put up with this shit

63. LCD SOUNDSYSTEM

64. I mean there’s only really one song I want, but I love it

65. OMG I JUST GOT HERE AND THEY STARTED PLAYING IT!
