Coachella 2012: You love the Ferris wheel

April 14, 2012 |  1:39 pm


The first night of the first weekend of Coachella is over and random Internet guy Brandon Hosley has declared it "successful." In other news, Katy Perry is a witch, your friends are already sick of your Ferris wheel shots, and Snoop Dogg has a burning question -- that's right, we've combed through your tweets, pics, and tumbles in a completely non-stalkerish way to find out what you thought, saw and tumbled on Friday night.

Check back Sunday to see what people posted about the Saturday line-up. Will Jeff Mangum live up to the pressure of his first West Coast gig in more than 10 years? Will fans be disappointed when the Childish Gambino set doesn't include cameos from the rest of the cast of "Community"? Is SBTRKT the best vowel-less band since MSTRKRFT? Did anyone ever answer Snoop Dogg's question?

Readers are invited to share experiences and photos on Twitter using the #latcoachella hashtag. We’ll be curating a selection of our favorites throughout the weekend.
