Thread: a gnarly coachella

  1. #1

    Default a gnarly coachella

    what would make it an insane coachella? besides the acts.

    im thinking of a giant visualizer for the dance tent; one or a few enormous monstrous visualizing system.

    i saw a "sky way" at the oc fair.. something that takes you from one side of the field to the other, but on a skii lift type thing.. that would be bad ass, riding that shit while performers are going on... minus all the ideas of what people could get in trouble for on it..

    umm..coachella happy hour, for alcohol. haha, how bad ass would that be.. even if it were 50 cents cheaper, that 50 cents..

    a giant screen with 4 panels somewhere where you can watch all the performers at once just by walking around it, ya know?

    saw a flying plane last year in the sky with info on it.. why not have lasers shooting through thy sky giving everyone a light show at the same time

    some of these ideas may not be practical but it is till worth a shot to just put them out there, ya know.. what do you guys think or have in mind.. l.. we all want coachella to fuckennnn kick ass, bigger and better than before always, 08!!

    My craziest concert experience was in England. I was at a Slayer/Mastodon show and while Mastodon was playing, there wasn't a cloud in the sky. Slayer goes on and it starts to get cloudy then they start playing Reign in Blood and the sky turns black and it just start pouring rain. Tom looks at Kerry king and they both give each other a WTF look and start playing even faster. I truly though the world was going to end at that moment....

    This thread is progressively making less sense.

    Also, does this thread belong in the music or misc. lounge?

    Giant "visualizer"- Check

    Skyway as seen in every state fair and amusement park in the country- Check

    50 cents off drinks...this seems a little unrealistic. "bad ass" sure, but how would we pull it off! And I think it could lead to a lot of problems. After all, a lot of people won't buy a $6 beer on principle, but if you make it $5.50, they're gonna drink 10!

    I believe the FAA could answer that question.

    So I am drinking water as I read this post and I end up spitting it out all over my desk from laughing out loud. Have no idea why, but that shit made me laugh

    Ins and outs - and I'm not talking burgers here, although that'd be gnarly too.

    indeed i have the 5th grade knowledge of how lasers work.. so pointing at the sky was a failed attempt to put my idea together, but what about a laser grid just above the highest stage at coachella? select certain locations for the lasers and the mirrors, put them in place, maybe multiple colors, maybe go with the beats of the out door stages... it can happen, but.. ya..

    maybe we should enlist the help of this guy http://www.vvork.com/

    and the guy at burning man 01



    how does coachella get its artists? artist entries, panel? sign ups?

    Giant cold water showers. Fuck the desert water shortage. It's hot out there. Or maybe a giant salt water pool.

    but it would be so bad ass.. plus it would above the peoples heads, far enough it wouldn't effect stage lighting or air traffic.. just saying it could be done, reasonably, i think.. someone please correct me so you can squash my dream of being able to pass out while looking at some crazy lasers and having the misty/smug looking fog created by all of our sweat and moisture at night+dirt
