I need more information. Are we counting only the pure music experience, or also all the other stuff like camping, the traveling it takes for us to get there, and the price and stuff?

I think polling might be a little skewed on a Coachella message board!

No Doubt. Expected. Really wanna see if there are people out there with great experiences of other festivals! I spent a week in Austin for SXSW and went to so many great shows all over the city. They do record label showcase shows! Those are great! You can fine tune your experience to EXACTLY what you want to see. It was awesome!

Thats what I was going to say, but I decided to see if someone else had allready pointed it out, which they had.

one of the top 5 stupidest polls ever.

hellooooooooooooo, the only festival most people on here have been to is coachella, so they are biased in favor of coachella.

The only US festival I've been to on that list is Coachella. I've been to the old travelling Lollapalooza, a couple Lilith Fairs, and a couple British festivals too. I can't really afford to travel too far to a festival now.

02-24-2007, 06:29 AM
I though maybe I could root out the people who have made it to several festivals. I could've swore there would be some multi-festers. I guess at Coachella, those people don't exist. I've been to several. There are no "ProFesters" in here? I know Coachella is going to rock! "In CA, Smug levels are through the roof!" I'm now going to Bonnaroo 07 and ACL 07. Should be a blast. I wanna go to Lollapalooza! MULTI FESTERS UNITE!!!

Warped tour 90's edition!!! I went in 96 to the one in austin tx. NOFX, Rancid, Swingin Utters', pennywise, fishbone, deftones. I was really into all that punk like lookout records and epitaph, nofx and guttermouth, screeching weasel, the queers, prettymuch skate punk and underground hip hop!!! Digables, Wu!!! They had this huge mural wall to be painted at each city and put together in a series after the tour was over. I painted a huge peice on that thing and now i wonder where it is! I received a sampler cd called "no brakes", and it was the first time I ever heard ozomatli. And that primus song "scissor man", trippy!!!

Coachella kind of revived the whole festival concept after the implosions of Lollapalooza, Lilith Fair and what not...Also, I have been going to the damn thing for 7 years..so I am a little biased...Though I loved All Tomorrow's Parties when they had it in California for a bit...The 2001 curated by Sonic Youth was excellent...

The poll may have been slightly improved if you took Coachella out of the list, then. I think it's also due to the fact many bands/artists stop by California that many don't feel the need to go to festivals, and quite frankly, it's expensive unless it's "in your own backyard". :o

ACL 07's gonna be fuckin' awesome :D

are you a Manual & Syntaks fan? Or did you get your name from somewhere else?

RienOneTexas
02-26-2007, 07:50 AM
yeah. I knew Coachella would blow everything else away, but I really wanted to see how many votes the others got. It seem that the coachella crowd is way more smug that other festival crowds. at bonnaroo you meet people from EVERYWHERE. MOre than half, im sure, at coachella are people from that area. I'll be roadtrippin from ft worth texas! should be a blast! I hope the vibe is as free flowing at coachella

I got it from somewhere else, never heard of Manual & Syntaks before.

I know what you mean. Being it was my first festival, ACL '06 totally spoiled me, so I hope the Coachella vibe's not... what I fear.

well, of course most of the people here are going to say coachella. :P they're here for a reason.

02-26-2007, 08:19 AM
What I'm saying is, at Coachella, it seems most of those people only go to coachella. Where at other fests, ALOT of the people are from all over the place, and go to several fests.

Rock on! I am going to both Coachella and Bonnaroo this year, as well as Free(Ozz)Fest! Also got tix to see the Police w/Foo Fighters at LA Dogers Stadium! Going to be the best summer EVER for concerts!


I voted for Bonnaroo on the poll, just because I love the 'chill' friendly vibe of Bonnaroo, but I loved Coachella last year. Coachella definantly gets my vote for the best festival site. The pretty views and nice green grass at Coachella were a pleasant surprise last year.
But the best festival I have EVER been to was Lollapalloozas 1 & 2!!!!

bonnaroo is the motherfucking shit. music till the sun comes up. drugs everywhere. no cops. almost no cops. but coachella will always be my first love and i'll always go back to her. the cool thing is that we have an open relationship and she doesn't mind if I do other chicks, I mean festivals.

SXSW is the most epic but it is hardly comparable to Coachella. It is also the least accessible for many but in many ways is the most fun!

Coachella is the most beautiful of course though!
