So, in 2008 we had a set that went to 1AM. The latest a set has ever ran before in Coachella history. In 2008 we also had both Prince and Roger Waters play for 2 + hours despite the normal headlining time given of much less than 2 hours.

So what do you all expect next year? I liked how they at least left the finish time blank last year for a headliner. Maybe we will get more surprises like this next year? maybe Paul T decides to give Portishead the Friday headlining spot with 2 hours to make up for last years set being cut a little short for Prince?

Speculation and rule breaking.....what say you?!?

Oh and The Chemical Brothers doing Setting Sun live with Noel Gallagher because Oasis is playing Coachella too.

I swear not a thread goes by without one of those names popping up.

the only change I want to see is a sunset --> sunrise schedule instead of this noon --> midnight nonsense.

but I don't expect that any time soon. or ever.

I think it all depends on who you get to headline, as well as how many acts you have performing

Jack Johnson's 1 hr 15 mins seemed reasonable I guess.

Prince... it honestly doesn't matter how much time you give him, he'll perform for as long as he wants to. He was only given 1hr 15 mins because Saturday was packed with acts. Had the days been thinned out, I think he would have gotten 90 mins.

Roger Waters - his set was long because he was doing DSOTM.

it all depends on who headlines.. like I guess Radiohead, Bowie, NIN, or Coldplay would get around the 90 minute mark.

These will all happen next year:

Full sets from Radiohead and David Bowie
A reunion I actually give a fuck about
The Knife IN THE TENT
No more camera thieves allowed
No Jack Johnson
Special shaded camp area available for an additional fee
The return of trainchella

rage patton
09-27-2008, 03:23 PM
Special shaded camp area available for an additional fee

Its called a canopy. It will get you an extra hour or two of sleep everyday and provides a cool place to chill while waiting to go inside.

Yeah, but I'm talking about a massive one that can cover lots and lots of tents. Or maybe a Sahara tent in the campsite. An individual canopy would be way too much for one person to bring, in addition to all the other crap.

frozen pilgrim
09-27-2008, 03:56 PM
so in other words... camp indoors

what a shitty idea

bring a canopy, or pay for a hotel, or 'onsite lodging'

Boourns
09-27-2008, 04:02 PM
Not shitty idea...brilliant. Hotel involves driving and being stuck in traffic. Onsite lodging is not shaded and a total ripoff unless you get the air conditioned tent.

if you camp with a fun group, canopies are provided. This year we had a jungle safari, next year we're going for a Space Theme

Coachella Bound

Camping is the way to go PERIOD! If you dont like the heat stay out of the desert!

As far as breaking rules go, well Id like to see some crazy collaborations! Any one can see so and so perform here and there, but this is COACHELLA. It brings together some of the most amazing artists from all over and with this year being the ten year you know its going to draw in some big names. Id like to see something special, like David Bowie and the White Stripes together (this is just an example dont freak out).

Something that would ONLY happen at COACHELLA! With that said....

Any other cool collabo ideas?.

exactly- it makes no sense at all, under any circumstance, to pay extra money to set up your tent under existing shade. toss a canopy in your car. you can buy a tarp and poles for twenty bucks, and it'll fit in a checked airline bag. that's what I did. got my tent, canopy, soccer ball, frisbee, mister, towels, all in one standard checked size bag.

Not everyone takes a car. Yeah, a tent, sleeping bag, pillow, toiletries, and 4 days of clothes completely filled my largest suitcase four years in a row and Amtrak and Greyhound have ridiculous limits on how many bags you can bring and how much it can weigh.

And a gigantic shade tent would provide more shade than any canopy ever could.

dude, your point is 100% invalid.

I JUST told you what I did.
and I took a greyhound bus, then a plane, then an amtrak train. I used all three major forms of transport, carrying all my shit in one bag that complied with all of their current baggage standards with no extra fees.

do people ever read what they're responding to?

I hear you Pilgrim, but I just cannot imagine how you fit all that shit in one bag. Canadian Voodoo?

frozen pilgrim
09-27-2008, 04:29 PM
no, I just packed carefully.

the other obvious option for people who aren't avid tetris fans is to buy a canopy for super cheap. or, if people really can't be bothered to bring a canopy, buy one, pay for onsite lodging, get a hotel, or do ANYTHING else to alleviate the morning heat, but can't handle the sun, here's a suggestion:
get heatstroke and die, because you're more interested in mental roadblocking than having a good time

frozen pilgrim
09-27-2008, 04:30 PM
also, use your bathroom scale to weigh your bags.

toss a canopy in your car

Loud and clear.

It is not possible to fit a tent, sleeping bag, pillow, blanket, toiletries, 4 outfits, breast milk, and then a canopy into even a large normal suitcase. I've tried.

And besides, unless that canopy is at least 100 square feet, the shade isn't that great. Now who can't read?

frozen pilgrim
09-27-2008, 05:45 PM
boourns, you're being an idiotic fucking troll.

go fuck yourself

Boourns
09-27-2008, 05:55 PM
Fuck you, asshole. You're the one being a dick about it. My suitcase was already overstuffed this year and there's no fucking way that a canopy would fit in there. What part of this do you not understand?

And Shpongle will never play Coachella.

frozen pilgrim
09-27-2008, 05:59 PM

I tried, salah. read my first post. I tried to be not only reasonable, but actually helpful- I suggested tarps and poles instead of a pre-fab canopy, as it packs way smaller. I was being nice, and boourns was roadblocking. trying to find any reason to validate his dumbass idea of a gigantic tent in the campground to... well, pitch a tent under.

I offered like four or five solutions, and he ignored all of them, and picked on inane semantic bullshit, like some kind of b/tard troll

Is roadblocking the biggest word you know and one you are so proud of knowing that you have to drop it every single post?

The fact is just because something works for you doesn't mean it works for everyone. You think I haven't tried your obvious solutions before? The most likely solution, which you didn't mention, is to leave out the sleeping bag, because those things are the biggest space hogs, by far.

But indoor camping would rock. Cheaper than a hotel, no traffic to deal with, but still get the protection from the sun and sleeping in a cloud of dust and dead grass.

lol, you would read /b

Coachella Bound
09-27-2008, 06:42 PM
Yeah, i think it was called the Project Revolution tour.

I honestly only hear really negative things about the guy....

In my opinion Sound Garden was the best thing that ever happened to him. The guy cant stay in a band. Sound Garden broke up, then Audioslave. I cant take his solo shit!

Boourns
09-27-2008, 06:46 PM
