For example, there's this from the Gobi Tent, Weekend One, courtesy of the website Coachella Missed Connections, which is dedicated to fate intervention: "We were dancing next to each other at Todd Terje. I was too high to talk so I handed you my favorite marble. I'm gonna need that marble back."

The site seems to have supplanted the original second-chance hook-up hub, Craigslist, which offers a mere fraction of Coachella-related searchers. None are as romantic.
Two ravers, for example, who exited the festival and started talking Peace, Unity, Love, Respect should get married: "we were walking out of Coachella together on Sunday when we started talking about your kandi, PLUR and underground raves! You even kissed me and made out with me a bit as we said goodbye to show how awesome PLUR is! I wish I would have asked for your number so you can show me the underground raving scene."
Two rockers had a brief interlude and conversation while smoking weed: "Friday after ACDC, we shared a high five and then a J on the walk back after you let me use your lighter. Your name was Dani and I really enjoyed our con."
LSD, meet true love: "My friends and I gave you an awkward hug after alt-j. We were on acid and your hair was short and pretty colored."
One entrepreneur was looking for a different kind of connection: ""Winklevoss twins, I saw you and your entourage during Nero. You were tall, built, and identical. I need investment for my startup. Hit me up."
Two star-crossed lovers bonded over the designer Vivienne Westwood: "i was at gorgon city, you asked if my hat was a real westwood. i knew then it was true love."
