Most likely yes, but the real bar to overcome is "sentience"....

Cool, an autoplaying video that autoplays even after I close it. That's what you want in a website.
 
2019-04-15 09:41:06 AM  
You're not too old for most things, if it's something you want to do.

The only reason to go to Coachella is to see all the trust fund kids and Instragram "influencers" spending
thousands of dollars to dress like they think hippies looked like at Woodstock.

And that is exactly what Coachella has devolved into

I mean no, but I doubt she and her compatriots are there for the music as opposed to having their pic taken at the event for publicity.  Nothing wrong with that but she's not some sudden music fanatic looking to soak up the vibes of up and coming acts alongside classic artists that were huge in her 30's.

Well there's also the big carrot festival therein, but you need to remember to take that left toin at Alba-koiky.

Perfume, Blackpink, Childish Gambino, Tame Impala? If I lived close I'd definitely go, and I'm very very old.

between the competitions about how many feathers they can pack into their ridiculous headdresses and who can sport the biggest thigh gap, the sheer numbers almost make up for the crappy music.

Speaking of feeling out-of-place, I'm still here at the Fyre Festival. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, HELP ME.
 
2019-04-15 09:58:03 AM  
Yes. I've found 35 in general is the absolute upper limit for going to a concert of an artist younger than you.

Coachella looks like hell on Earth to me anyway, even in my younger days. You could stack the lineup with my top 10 favorite bands playing all my favorite songs in a row, and I still wouldn't submit myself to that experience.

Could be thought of as PNSFW; linking just to be safe

But for all that, all of these festival people's outfits have a certain sameness and safety, even the PNSFW
pic I linked to.

/Yes I am aware of the irony of posting a 40+ year old song in this thread.

I don't know about being too old for Coachella but you can obviously be too poor. That's a festival for rich white kids.
 
2019-04-15 10:12:20 AM  
No but you can be "into good music instead."
 
2019-04-15 10:13:16 AM  
F*ck it. There are people out there that think 25 years is old. F*ck 'em. These people think everybody is too old to do anything. Who cares what they think. F*ck 'em. It is their personal issue they are dealing with. Not mine. I have been enjoying being the older dude at concerts.

Admittedly though, I looked into going to see Hippie Sabotage a couple months ago and the reviews said it is usually a show full of teenagers so I did decide against that one.

but in general....I would go to Coachella for sure.
 
2019-04-15 10:16:51 AM  
I guess I'm too old to know who this 'too old for Coachella' person is.  Looking at the article, I don't even know what bands are part of it.

I also have fantastic taste in music.

Most people at Fark are too old to go to a Guns n Roses reunion.  Not that they would want to, but...
The old person at the concert is as bad as the guy wearing the shirt of the band you're seeing.

I saw some Coachella story earlier about some singer who tried to get a call and response going, and it went badly.

'When I say yee, you saw haw!'  I take it she's a country singer, but I'm not going to say those particular words for ANYBODY..
 
2019-04-15 10:37:10 AM  
Coachella is for trust fund babies and custy scenesters. If that's your scene, then go.

Seriously, you're going to ignore the fact that it's a music festival?
I'd go if I could, and I'm pretty old. I have a friend who is 66 who still goes to at least 4 outdoor, multiple day festivals. For the music.

If you liked prog rock back in the old days, you really should check out Tame Impala

I went to Paradiso last year and had an amazing time and I am just shy of 40. I don't know how I missed out on festivals in my 20s. Making up lost time now... the vibe is all about acceptance and unity... I loved it sooo much

Cause old people should wither away and die in seclusion? How dare they go outside and try to do stuff.

I was 46 the last time I went to Coachella.

I am now 49 and went to Ultra Music Festival and I am going to Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas this year as well.

Yes, I am older than 99.8% of the people there but I still have a blast!

Last year I went to:
Ultra Music Festival
EDC Las Vegas
Lollapalooza
Jazz & Heritage Fest
Austin City Limits
15 - Dead & Company shows
10 - Phish shows
Pebble Beach Food & Wine
Aspen Food & Wine
South Beach Food & Wine

Some people have vacation homes, I have great memories.

I smarted that, but the point was that they were already old in ... 1987?

First of all, Mr.Disingenuous and Out of Touch, it's Guns N' Roses, no ampersand.
Secondly, the only reason I wouldn't go to see them is that I can't stand Axl Rose.
