The art has been terrible since 2010. This year was an embarrassment. They should just take out "and arts" from the name so they don't mislead people.

I'm doing my best to stimulate people's minds with art anywhere and anytime I can.

Coachella should give me a 5,000 budget and five crew members and let me geek out the festival.

I actually REALLY liked the Gateway with the animated projection on it. Everything else was just okay.

I liked "gateway" this year and I guess maybe the wind prevented them from assembling "Triad"? That looks like it would have been cool. Other than "Gateway" theres nothing worth mentioning. I remember coming home from my first Coachella in 2009 and raving about the art to anybody that would listen. It was part of the reason I went back. After this year I don't even consider art part of the experience.

Wow. By comparison, I see what you mean. Those are amazing!

I stared at the Lotus for the whole Beats Antique set while my feet were sinking into the ground

I think it went up Saturday. It wasn't there on Friday, for sure.

Most of the art this year was uninspiring, especially compared to years past, but most of it came to life at night. I thought the grounds looked spectacular Sunday night.

It went up sunday. I guess it had electrical problems and coachella gave them 24hrs to fix it.
