Oh yeah, this years lineup was incredible too, thanks for that.

I loved the good vibes that were all around us at this year's festival. This was the best atmosphere I have felt in my three years going to the Polo Fields. Here's to good vibes in 09!

I'm from san diego, and this was my 8th coachella, and one of my favorites. This is mostly because the atmosphere this year was better than any other year, probably for 2 reasons:

1) less crowded. the worst part about coachella every year is the horrible crowds. this year was PERFECT. they should limit the attendance to whatever it was this year if they want to give it that extra nice touch. i know thats costs gv money, but id even pay a little extra for my ticket if that meant less crowds.

2) no tool or rage type bands. dont get me wrong, i love those bands, but they seem to bring a lot of drunken, belligerent idiots to the shows. this year everybody was much nicer and more respectful than the past couple years.


edit: paul, if you are reading this, please bring faith no more and outkast next year. oh, and reunite porno 4 pyros too! thanks!

From Los Angeles, this was my eighth one in a row, and the best.

I adored the open gates at the end on the night (Fri and Sun only) that let us out onto Monroe from the Sahara tent area that took a good mile off of the walk down to Lot 5. That Saturday walk back was a killer via the front gates.

I loved the ease at which I was able to get up front in most every show I saw, except the Sahara- but I really didn't try. I also loved how most the bands started on time, only real pain in the ass was Fatboy Slim and Prince.

From San Diego, currently residing in Santa Cruz.

Basically I loved the lineup, the crowd was better, I didn't take advantage of the new water policy (I just thought that security couldn't find all my filled bottles buried underneath my empty ones) but I'm going to love it next year, and camping and scheduling, more or less, was great.

Keep up the good work!!!

From the lil town of calexico. I too loved the ease of going from act to act weaving through the slightly thinned crowd compared to last year. The additional art installations were awesome and served as a distraction that helped even out the crowd through out the field. The entrance security working fast helped getting in alot quicker too.

#1 - The crowd level. Absolutely perfect. Comfortable all weekend long.

#2 - The continued diversity in the linuep. No fest is stronger in three major areas. Electronic, Indie and Headliners. Jack Johnson being there didn't bother me one bit because you had Fatboy Slim and others as options.

#3 - Camping, it's all about the combination of people from around the world, the artists from around the world and the art. It's pure magic. Thanks for all you do. When the sun goes down it's pure fucking magic! :D

Coachella #5. Loved the bands, the fans, the grounds, the art, the weather, the sweethearts selling t-shirts, the pig (RIP), and a 3 day release from the grind of regular life.

Best of all, whenever a problem crops up like parking lot traffic chaos, overflowing potties, or ridiculous exit gate funnelling, GV fixes the problem on little sleep and short notice.

Coachella is the event by which all others are judged. Thanks for an incredible run.

Now get busy on that Oingo Boingo show for the 10th anniv next year :thu

This was my first year and here's a few things I really loved:

Bringing in water
The staff in the nokia and AT&T tents letting people lay down and sleep if they want
The awesome lights in the sahara
A diverse lineup that includes electronic acts (this is why I chose Coachella over other fests)
The 10 for 1 recycling

Even though it's not asked for, I must mention that food quality was generally very low; more non-greasy, healthy food next year please :)

1. The layout was a little better this year.....there seemed to be less cross feed of the stages, especially the Outdoor and Main stage.

2. The vibe....everyone is laid back and cool

3. The art, it works on so many levels throughout the day and such a surprise when it gets dark

Missed the dome tho and didn't see the teslas fire this year neither :(

This was my first year:

I loved the art installations, the vibe, seeing a bunch of eletronic bands that were new to me (no, I didn't come for Jack Johnson, but I am more of an alt. rocker girl).

My only minor gripe was that my man surprised me w/ VIP passes and we didn't even go there until after the first three hours we were there. I dressed for survival (heat, comfort,et.) and not for fashion. We went to VIP, there were all these beautiful women in five inch heels and perfect hair and make-up. They were totally looking at me like 'How did this loser get into VIP'? LOL!! (My 'unfashionable' outfit is in my avatar).

Btw, great food in VIP and real cocktails, but to be honest, I spent more time out by opposite end of the fields and didn't have much use for VIP except for real bathrooms and cocktails...oh yeah and napping during Slightly Stoopids set.

I love the obscure musical acts at the beginning of the day that for the most part, don't end up sucking. You guys do a really good job picking out artists (no matter how known or not they may be...) to play your fest. Only a few acts this year I didn't care for, so well done.

Camping. I have an aunt and uncle that have a place in Palm Desert, that I can stay in for cheap, BUT I'LL NEVER NOT CAMP. It's one of the best part of the fests every year.

Yeah last year I thought the heineken tent was pointless, you had to wait in line to get a beer, then wait in another line to get in the A/C tent. I said fuck it last year, but this year I chilled in there for a bit and man that beer was cold.

I'm a coachella express rider for life.

apart from the fun and goodies, it's downright invaluable for 18-21 year olds who're traveling from abroad and can't rent a car. please, please,bring it back next year (and give us first-year riders a special car! with free vip again!)

also, the lights were incredible. absolutely incredible.

yes please to an atendance cap at whatever this year was. purr-fucking-fect. saw everything from up close.

I liked how many of the art pieces were designed as shade-providers. I think the idea of using the themes of shade and water is awesome. make this a must! for an art piece to be displayed, it should serve a function or fit into the theme of the festival.

and as a final note, bring the stagecoach bbq competition to coachella!
or maybe a mexican cookoff?

I'm from Riverside

The spotlights. Made me feel safe being under them
Everything being covered in water in the Do Lab
Being able to sit and watch a band I'd never heard of before and really enjoy it.
Security could've been less crazy-nazi-ish(camping and event). I went to my car to get a pillow, you do not need to reach second base while searching me...
The shower guys putting out hoses, and then letting us attach a slip n slide to it. That was fantastic.
I also like that the hot asian preformer whipped me during a show in the Do Lab

NICE. i even fell onto this guy during fat boy slims set, and instead of yelling at me he just said 'its all good maaaaaaaan'. wow, you people are friendly. or just high on weed all the time.

My third time and this was the best year I've been to. Things I loved:

All the art, especially that mesmerizing light cube thing, and of course the Tesla coils

The big drum percussion thing, there were some seriously fun groups of people playing on that thing and dancing. I was in there banging on drums for so long my hands hurt later. Too bad most of it was busted by sunday evening

The Do Lab - dancing and getting wet is a blast, decent DJ sets, and the crazy clowns and stuff kept it interesting

It seemed like the parking and entrance situations were better this year

Good, diverse food in the food courts, but that's pretty standard for Coachella

the rocking crowds in the Sahara

An awesome overall line up

And a really great vibe from everyone there this year!

This was my second year. Love the vibe, as before. Less people was nice, but I do realize that was a perk of this year, and may not be the same next year. The Kraftwerk/Portishead/Prince triple bill was beyond words. The lockers were a nice touch this year... it was very handy! Also, kudos on getting Dimitri From Paris, Goldfrapp, The Breeders, and The Verve.

My complaint this year was the port-o-potty situation... they seemed WAY less clean than the year before, when there were more concert goers. Also, less of a complaint and more of a concern, but sound bleed from the Do-lab at the Outdoor Stage.

Oh, and the 95 degree weather the first day? Awesome. Can we do THAT again? :D

Frederick, CO (Denver/Boulder Metro area)

The longer set lists for the headliners (Prince and Roger Waters). Especially how you guys did it at APW. The variety of acts. Where on earth could you have found Aphex Twin, Prince and Roger Waters in one place? Exclusive acts (Portishead, Kraftwerk, Aphex Twin). The somewhat cheap water. $2 is a deal compared to other festivals. The sound system during Roger Waters. That surround sound that was at APW too. You should keep it.

some guy giving us free special cookies upon arrival to the campground. It was really hard to set up the tent.

08 was my third year, came for the first time in 05, then I missed 06 and will forever regret it due to Daft Punk's epic performance... promised myself I would never miss another year. Loved the retarded spectacle of the RATM riot in 07... My friend was in a panda suit and we were afraid the police dogs might single him out. I also loved the comedy the first morning... give the crappiest time slot to something like this again, it was a great intro to the weekend.

In 08 I loved the quadrophonic sound for Roger Waters... I've never experienced anything like that. I loved all the great electro acts, even though the omnipresence of ed banger bothers some people. I loved Boys Noize especially, let's hope he keeps making tracks and comes back again.

I love that Coachella is a diverse festival with a diverse audience. It's the best place on Earth to people watch, and sometimes the best bands you see are the ones you've never even heard of. Big ups to Golden Voice for making the end of April the musical new year!

I think I just figured out who you are. I'm pretty sure we were talking on the train ride on the way down.
