Does anyone know if Goldenvoice is already setting up the stages at the Polo Fields? I know I'll get shit for this but a friend of a friend, Nader Elwan, posted this on February 25th on his facebook. It's his cover photo. Both of these people are music major graduates and do stagehand work for almost every Southern California music festival especially Coachella. I've even helped out one of them during Coachella 2010.

They dont start set-up until the weekend before the fest, and at that point its mostly fencing off areas n' stuff. There's a polo season going on right now that ends the weekend before Coachella. I worked there for two years.

A better thread title would have been "Here's a picture of what appears to be part of a dome with no date or other information to make it relevant."

I guess we can all HOPE! That would definitely up the EDM quality level if they have similar acts to last year!

I am willing to bet there is some form of a dome there this year but it won't be run by Pure Filth and - unless they are spreading the set times apart by still having a dome as an official stage - it won't have any of the artists from the poster. It will be a Do Lab / Heineken Dome type stage with acts who aren't on the lineup. This may not be a bad thing considering the Do Lab and Heineken Dome had acts like DJ Dan, Donald Glaude, Dirty Vegas and Lee Burridge last year.

Kind of like the dome every other year they had a dome.

surprises = Sub Focus at the Music Box and Nero at Club Nokia. I was hoping for more along the lines of Joy Orbison and Ramadanman but whatevz. I'll take it.

The dome was one of the best things about Coachella the past few years. It makes me very sad that it won't be there this year.

I believe there is a structure that resembles the dome that is near the polo fields year round. Just sayin'.
