A larger Gobi or the Sahara would be my top choices in this spot.

Too far to walk to...heck, even when they had the Dome near the entrance in 2009, that was too far to walk to.

Sorry, but if they expect 75,000 capacity again, that spot was for parking last year. No need to replace one problem with another.

I'm pretty sure that's where Safari / VIP Tents have been in the past; not parking.

But now, It looks like Safari / VIP is now at The Lake Eldorado campsite, which appears where that lake is on the left of the aerial shot.


New for 2011, The Lake Eldorado campsite offers ready to go camping surrounding the serene setting of the redeveloped Lake Eldorado. Enjoy Coachella with flair, as your party is ready to start once you step onto the park like scenery of your own private access camping community.

So, this area is now free for something new, and the grass is way too nice to park on.

It'd be a great area to displace 10,000 hipsters from the main grounds.

Trust me on this, Playa, for 7 years I lived right behind that square blob of trees you see in the 2nd pic and I used to jog faithfully on the campground field and beyond. And believe me, now that I know what Coachella is, I can't believe I missed the first 3 due to ignorance. After I moved from the casita to Indian Palms, I ended up being the bar/clubhouse manager for over 3 years, which meant I also ran the polo beverage cart during the games. If Coach ever decides to break the tents up onto separate fields, or areas, I'm ahead of the game on all the shortcuts! lol

I'm pretty sure the VIP tents were located near the huge white tent near the Monroe entrance because while we camped last year, we were able to park privately on the property to the left of that field beyond the campground you'd like the new Sahara on. Believe me, it was parking and if I remember, that was the lot that shuttled people out in the mornings to Ralphs, etc...It also happened to get locked down at the end of the fest with people still waiting to get out.

Now I'm curious as to how many of these local hotels that Coachella makes rich each year, provide free shuttles to and from the fest as a way of saying thank you?

Okay. I happen to know where one of the faucets are and it's a perfect area for an orgy. Matter of fact, Instead of a flashlight, I'll wear my miner's head lamp. That way I can use both hands for hosing.

Yes! please put the sahara tent in that area. It would kill two birds with one stone.

Yes do what we say. Please also make it dump snow inside the Sahara similar to the video above.

I don't know if I would like the Sahara that close to the main stage...bleeds?

summerkid
12-14-2010, 02:56 PM
I don't think that would be a problem. The Main Stage is about as far from the Outdoor Theatre and you could face the Sahara away from the Main Stage.

I don't think sound bleeding would be a problem once both areas were cranking.

Hmmm... if this is all true, then I think moving the Sahara to this area would be an amazing idea. The extra walk wouldn't bother me at all. It would also give room to make bigger a big Gobi and Mojave.

I would kill if they moved the saharah by the main stage. I dont wanna hear the "mm tis mm tis mm tis" of the bass bleeding into REAL MUSIC.

Not saying dub step and all that shit isnt music, I just prefer real intruments.

This comment is pretty hilarious. Surprised no one has jumped on this guy yet.

Yup. Which is exactly why nothing we have talked about in this thread is ever going to happen.

there should be a nap station installed in all this new space, in case all the baby boomers that come to see the Stones need a siesta midafternoon to refuel for the ungodly late hour of 9 to see their favorite has been Rockstars

You people know it is going to really kill me to have to say this. right? I mean it gives me great pain to tell you all this.

Brokendoll's right.

I parked there last year on one of the days. not Friday. Saturday probably. or maybe both Saturday and Sunday. but yeah. I parked there. It's parking.

So, I wonder what this (http://www.mydesert.com/article/20110119/LIFESTYLES010102/101190314/Kanye-West-Arcade-Fire-Kings-Leon-headline-Coachella-Music-Festival)means

Expanded venue
Coachella will play out on a larger field this year with the lease of land from Eldorado Polo Club just west of Empire, and onsite campgrounds will include such features as a farmers market, a 24-hour general store, a roller skating rink and free shuttle service to a local grocery store.

Seems to me that Coachella has always had the Eldorado fields just west of the Empire ones...unless this now means they now have permit to have actual festival there, not just parking.
The Eldorado map: http://www.eldoradopoloclub.com/uploads/Polo-Pathfinder-Map.pdf

The area in red below would in-deed be 'West' of Empire.
