About what time was that? I don't think it looks all that crowded in your pics (good pics btw) ...

Was he referring to what is allowed on the ferris wheel? Because fuck, I definitely missed a golden opportunity if that's the case...

i just didn't have an extra $5 to throw out unfortunately and I didn't want to use my time on a ferris wheel, I'd rather see bands. But like I said forgot the view, that would be the only reason, along with it looking pretty at night.

My friend was a pussy, the whole weekend he bitched about how scared of heights he is. I wanted to get a shot from up there....

well, this is the thread for cool ferris wheel pics...

And every time I tried going on the ferris wheel there was a big line and I wasn't missing one of my 35+ booked acts I love. Obviously, sacrifices would have been made for the allotted ferris wheel privileges we now know of, though I also would have had to waste another few shows trying to swoop some chica for the occasion

Wow... I knew the Outdoor Stage was way more crowded than the Main Stage at times.... but look at that shit. This has to change.

Why does this have to change? The space in front of the Outdoor is no less than that in front of the Coachella. And crowd movement is a significant positive.

Also this photo is from early in the afternoon; are we even sure there was a band on the Coachella?

How could you not think of views when you think of ferris wheel? Isn't that mostly what they are for?

My guess is Temper Trap

Nope.

That was far worse. This is earlier than that.

These are taken early Friday it seems? Earlier no matter what day thats for sure.

Also if you notice, there isnt anyone playing the main stage at the time of the pic.

I failed by not going on the ferris wheel. Howevber, I am scared of ferris wheels rides in general. Scarier than roller coasters for me.

Based on this pic: http://www.flickr.com/photos/goodwattage/4545959445/in/set-72157623793155243/ I am convinced this is in fact The Temper Trap. I stood within 10-20 feet to the front right of that Canadian flag, and the guitarist with the shaved head was wearing a light purplish shirt (seen in stage left of that pic). This would put it on Saturday (4/17) at the 4pm hour.

I don't have any great photos,since I'm not much of a photographer (that's my brother's deal) but here's a few I took early Friday,like 12:30 or so...
(I actually had a better time on the wheel Sunday night right before close,thanks to the camera being out of batteries.More time to enjoy how awesome everything looked!)

I got on right during FeelGood,Inc. but my camera was out of juice.It was cool seeing everybody in the whole place streaming out,and the lights,art,etc. A real nice cap to the weekend.Bring back the wheel in 2011!!

Aside from the Organ, the ferris wheel was by far the coolest part of coachella this year. I was really bummed I never got to go on the light up swing set...that would have made my trip
