The Worst Things at Coachella This Year, Weekend Two

Ed. Note: Brought to you by our tired, dusty and very tolerant friends at LA Weekly and OC Weekly.

Here's everything that bothered us about Coachella's second weekend. Hey, at least there was no dust storm!

Native American Headdresses
These have still not gone away. In fact, one particularly irritating woman (not pictured) wore a towering feather Mohawk weave, a sartorial statement that combined racism with rave gaudiness. On Friday, she pushed her way in front of us, obstructing our and everyone else's view of the show. Congratulations, lady, you're Coachella's worst person! ANDREA DOMANICK

Pharrell Performing the Daft Punk Song, But Not at Coachella
On Friday Pharrell performed "Get Lucky," his much buzzed-about collaboration with Daft Punk, for the very first time. In Brooklyn! It's bad enough that he was in last weekend's promo video tease that pissed everyone off. But this is just insulting. ANDREA DOMANICK

Mr. Coachella Snail, You're in the Way!
We love you, large mollusk, but we really couldn't see much during Of Monsters and Men. RYAN COX

The Nasty Shit on the Ground
By the end of each night, the entire field (and especially the ground in each tent) was a dumpy trash pile of water bottles, broken sunglasses, dirty bandannas and glowsticks. Particularly degenerate items spotted in the field included an empty bag of coke and a tampon inserter. KATIE BAIN


Last Call
We headed to the beer garden at 11:45 p.m. for one last frosty before Sigur Rós, only to be greeted by a security guard shaking his head at us. What is this, a baseball game? Beer garden, you were closed when we needed you most! TAYLOR HAMBY
