Coachella 2012: Fix those shuttle signs

April 21, 2012 | 11:20 am

The first day of the second weekend of Coachella (or the third Friday of the fourth month if you want to be extra confusing) has ended and concert-goers are still evenly split: Was it simply too hot out, or way, way, way, too hot? Proponents of both sides took to social media to weigh in on this  important issue in a fashion that some commenters have described as "incessant" and "whining."

Despite the onslaught of temperature talk, there were plenty of tweets and pics that made it seem like Coachella was once again the place to be. Highlights of Friday included John Fogerty joining the Black Keys, M. Ward and Mazzy Star winning prestigious awards, and the revelation that Batman is a big a believer in Mayan prophecies. Who knew? Check out the Storify post below for more reactions from Indio. Seriously though, we get it. It's hot.
