Dear lovely PF, why must you f with us this way? When the site went down, I was eagerly anticipating THE announcement... Then... Trentemoller again. Oh, bother.

I think they're workig on the backside of the site.
I design web pages And I can tell u that when I'm testing we do the same thing.
I'd bet an announcement or some reveal in the next 24hrs.

These message boards have been going down for periods of 1-2 minutes throughout the day as well. And the Trentemoller video...

Lineup tomorrow?

It's not random.
They're up to something
I'm surprised they'd publish the 'IT WORKS!'
Usually when working on a new format or design u make a factitious page and publish it there to see if it works (that way u can see it live but the public doesnt see it) then copy the data to the main site and publish it when ready.

Ha. Prob not, but I was checking their lineup (which is out) to see the path structure of their main poster. When I replaced the domain with coachella, it just brought up the placeholder with the dates though. f5!

That's a good idea. I was just randomly trying to guess file names and all I came up with was this, from 2009.

I don't work in web design, but it surprises me how the Coachella servers start acting this way just before the lineup announcement. I'm guessing that they are bumping their servers when they are making some changes to the new files. But, then again, I could be completely wrong too.

I think they are just doing general server maintenance. When you first install Apache and test http://localhost/ the default splash screen says "It Works!". So who knows. I would think they are doing some stress testing / installing patches prior to the insane amount of traffic they will get when the lineup is announced.

Ah, you may be right. I'm an IIS admin but not very familiar with Apache, I didn't realize that was their default page. They could just be adding servers to the farm in preparation of the traffic crush, and those servers that display "It Works" just haven't had their default pages updated.

Based on what? A couple of standard programming glitches? Even though it flies in the face of any discernible pattern established over the last few years of SOME outlet promoting the announcement of the lineup prior to its actual release?

It doesn't. It's a blank OLD poster. They're not going to use the same poster they did a few years ago. It doesn't mean anything. You fuckers will project meaning onto things that are clearly meaningless. Just go home. Go to your homes.

I don't think they know when it's going to be released.

From an MTV article a few days ago.





not to mention the fact that, when we asked a spokesperson for Goldenvoice (Coachella's organizers), we were told "[There's] no word just yet on an official announcement," we're remaining skeptical.

http://newsroom.mtv.com/2011/01/11/coachella-2011-lineup-fake-poster/
