I was looking at stuff for Stagecoach festival because i was bored as fuck, and I saw that the seating arrangement is reserved/assigned seats, and that different prices correspond with different sections, etc. Is coachella gonna be like that this year too? cuz that would suck hard

I have a red hat. But it's a beanie and I'm left wondering if they'll have to be the same style?

Maybe we could all be assigned a group when we enter the gate, and we have to stay with that group at all times. The designated leader of the group will have something obvious (perhaps a flag or an umbrella) that he/she can hold aloft so the other group members don't get lost. Additionally, each group member will be assigned a number. Let's say, for the sake of argument, there are ten people per group, including the group leader. When the group arrives at the stage they've decided to visit next, the group members will loudly count off in order, so the group leader is aware if anyone got lost on the way from, for example, the main stage to the Mojave Tent. In the event of one or more lost group members, the entire group will travel to the area designated for lost people. They will wait there until the lost member in question arrives (including anyone lost on the way from the previous stage to the Lost Persons Area).

I know that with an estimated attendance of 50,000+, this means we would have more than 5,000 groups, but I see that as a minor inconvenience. If there's one thing I've always thought about Coachella, it's that it needs more rigorous organization. Reserved seats would be awesome, but I firmly believe my proposal is the best way to accomplish that goal.

I got section Z, row zz, seat 17245 on the coachella 08 pre pre presale. Is that a good seat? Can i see (and hear) all 5 stages from there? Is it close to the toilets?

The Warfield in S.F. is theater like with a Balcony and has assigned seating. I know Coachella hasnt ever been that way in the past 8 years, but if they happen to make it like the Warfiled, that would suck!

I would amend this proposal by suggesting that each group stays together by using a knotted rope that each group member holds onto, in the style of preschool daycare programs. That should solve any issues with group members being lost in the crowd.

Imagine if they did Coachella at the warfield..

Tix would sell out in less than a second, and the balcony would probably collapse. heh

Ew assigned seating?

I'd rather get crushed by the slimey sweaty gridlock of people and get stuck between people that don't want to move than have assigned seating.

I would further ammend this proposal to include a group of people that have to wear yellow stars.

We're super super selly! I would enjoy everyone wearing black only. Then we would play a little game called "watch 50 year-old hippies die of heat stroke!" That would be su-diddly-uper selly.

Red hats??? I tried that during Seu Jorge's set back in 2006, you know, like Steve Zissou's Team Aquatic.... didn't quite work...
