Psychic Friend - here are my top 10 suggestions for making this year's Coachella excellent:

1. Keep the same Sahara tent set-up from Madonna last year (i.e. outdoor screens and open tent flaps). It makes the whole Sahara experience better.

2. Print the schedule in colors that can be read after dark without high-beam headlights.

3. Please raise the tent stages so that people under 5'5" can actually see the performers. Alternatively, all people under 5'5" bring very tall shoes and a big hat to block the view of all the smug, tall a**holes who like to stand right in front of us.

4. Better organize the age check line by the Mojave tent. It always winds up blocking flow from the tents to the stages.

5. Stop letting the police impede traffic after the show. Everyone would get home much faster and safer if they stopped funneling us one way and let us just mind the traffic lights.

6. Print correct set times. Last year, I arrived for what I thought was the last 12 minutes of Matisyahu's set only to see the end of his last song, as he ended 10 minutes early. Same with Jamie Lidell. Makes it impossible to plan.

7. Have one tech person on hand per tent. Last year, poor Imogen Heap wound up crawling around on her hands and knees in the heat to fix her tech problems and had to start late.

8. Either make the Coachella text messaging feature useful or get rid of it. For example, if an act is ending 10 minutes early, let us know via TM. That would be helpful. Pinging us a zillion times with exactly what's printed on the schedule (especially when it's incorrect) is just annoying.

9. Fix the exit situation. Why you've decided to herd all of us like cattle through tiny exits is beyond me (though I do enjoy the farm noises).

10. Abide by what you print on the site. For the last several years, it has said nothing about pens being prohibited in the venue, yet every year they make some poor guy throw his away at security. If pens aren't allowed, tell us. Otherwise, they're comin' in.

Anyone else?

Peanut Gallery - read the freaking suggestions before you get sarcastic, okay? I'm sorry your boss didn't give you that last promotion to Slurpee Machine Manager, but that doesn't mean you have to take your bitterness out on us.

They should have a make your own Coachella T-shirt contest and the top 2 get free tickets for next year and their t-shirts are printed up for sale the next year!
That would be very fun and cool to do. Let the crowd judge early Sunday before the real shows start up.
