    Many others were seen in the midst of looking for friends, getting distracted, dancing at the camping tents or just looking for a good time who's names now have escaped me and have been forever lost and only remembered in the desert sun.

    There are many I planned on seeing and now wish very much that I had/ditched my group to see:

    Vampire Weekend
    Grizzly Bear
    Fever Ray
    Yeasayer (maybe i saw them)
    Ra Ra Riot
    Pretty Lights
    Little Dragon

    Major Lazer
    Gossip
    Les Claypool
    Faith No More
    Sia
    Camera Obscura
    Flying Lotus
    Portugal, the Man
    White Rabbits (maybe i saw them)
    Girls
    Beach house
    Daedelus
    Free the Robots

    Orbital
    Infected Mushroom
    Jonsi
    Yo La Tengo
    MUTEMATH
    the Big Pink
    Local Natives


    Despite not seeing those artists whom I LOVE, the weekend was off the HOOK. Couldn't have asked for a better time or group to spend the weekend with. <3

    Things to remember for my next Coachella trip:

    - Walkie Talkies, if we have another big group (7 people this time around)
    - Have everyone plan out who they want to see in advance: who is to go with who, and designated meeting times/areas
    - Bring a hat and more sunscreen, 2 bottles is not enough
    - Buy the water jug they offer
    - Sneak in a flask or two or three
    - Buy two camping spots

    Highlights:

    - Everything the camping area had to offer; swings w/LED seats, all night long dance parties, over hearing our neighbors odd conversations. Do-lab dance parties, hanging out with my cousin each day, beautiful art displays, extremely friendly and generous attendees. And last but not least, every fucking second!! :)

    Summer 06: The summer I lost myself and traveled within the music. Deep in to the beats, escaping reality and coasting on colorful wavelengths. High and low, hand in hand with the rhythm. What I didn't know then is now with me every day. I am within the notes, where it's all too familiar.

    Some of these songs are some of my favorites.
