    no way. Only rich snobby assholes would end up in the front and ruin the vibe.

    Agreed. When we saw NIN at Coachella, we were close to the stage, on the left. There was a gate on the fence on the left side, and a trail of "VIP" people kept walking in and out, in and out, getting their alcohol. It was really annoying.

    i would say yes only if it was at a decent price. kind of like how u2 sold the floor tickets cheap but it was first come first sold type of thing. id be cool with that. or at least give us the chance to buy them first!

    Fuck no. It would ruin the vibe, take up too much valuable space, and ruin everything for the common folk. Only noobs hang out by the main stage the whole time, anyway. Famous people and ass-kissers of famous people score all-access passes and watch bands while on-stage, which is a lot better.

    Part of the essence of Coachella is that is an even playing field (pun intended) for everyone.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    um. vip tickets don't get you on stage. they get you access to the VIP area that is to the left of the main stage. not in front of you. those people on stage have back stage passes.

    someone correct me if I am mistaken.

    FUCK NO! That pissed me off at Vegoose. If you can't fight your way to the front and earn your spot don't bother. And what's more, the spots the section off for the 'vip pit' is usually lame anyway.

    But seriously... "VIP Pit"? Doesn't that cross itself out?

    Agreed! It was like that at vfest and it was distracting. The scary thing- ONLY vfest's VIP area had those special trailer pottys. That was something I was ever so grateful for at coach! I love those trailer pottys. I just cant do the porta potty ones.

    apologize for not being clear, but left of the stage/on the stage are equally distractive... especially when there is a constant camera flash coming from the direction your looking in

    I'm glad you know how performers on stage feel then.

    The last thing we need to do is cater further to "this" crowd. It's a festival. It's time to mingle.

    I would not mind doing so. I could buy 10 of them and wait till it sells out and sell them for 500 a pop.

    I'm all about waking up early and buying better seats than everyone, but this is different. You're supposed to fight it out at a festival.

    I'd like to see someone body surf, while sitting in a chair.


    BTW - Stagecoach sold 400 tickets at $493 a ticket within a matter of seconds.

    Wait... wtf? I just realized Stagecoach has reserved seating at the mainstage.
    Are you kidding me? Thats so... weird.

    Also, did anyone notice Stagecoach has a sponsor?

    Looks like they had to set their ticket price within the $1million limit of festival cost.

    gold circle pit tickets?: No Hell No

    With Coachella at 3 days now, it is a beast out there surviving (especially if you're camping!!!). And I don't like the idea of people kicking it in beer gardens, then finally venturing out to the gold circle spot for headliners. Fucks up the vibe.

    Money divisions are never a good thing. VIP is everywhere obviously, but at coachella it is a twist of money/hookup division. Nothing to be envious about, cause the party is out on the fields anyway.

    There is a sense of crazy endurance and contentment after waiting for a while before a headliner comes on at Coachella. I got to the Daft Punk pit 3.5hrs early just to make sure I had a bomb spot. You talk and connect to people who are true fans, because they are there hardcoring it, and having a good time too.

    You don't need to add more tier statuses to attending coachella. Now, that doesn't mean I am not hoping for my VIP connections to come through this year...lol, but I'm just saying

    Yes we noticed. The sponsor is up the alley of the audience being reached. Coachella has sponsors too, like its something new? Its just not ''Heineken presents: Coachella''



    And have you ever been to a Country music concert, event, etc etc? Didnt think so, it sounds weird, but its justifiable for this.


    And its the Mane stage, get it?

    should be the "Supercuts Mane stage", or "Fantastic Sam's Mane Stage", they could have a tent on site with free mullet trim's. i am actually thinking of doing a mullet for next year's show, old school billy ray cyrus style...

    So, I already talked about bonnaroo once on the boards today, but here goes:

    they actually have a pretty sick system at their main stage, where everyone can have a chance up at the front. there are feeder lines on the wings of the audience, and they cycle out the front part between each act.....not a bad system.....my personal pref. is being halfway back for most every band...gives me a lot more autonomy, as I usually like running around with my headfull of whatever t is that I've purveyed...whatever...i digress....and I can't fuckin' wait.

    Those VIP areas at Vegoose were ridiculous. They were off to one side or the other. No real better view of the stage at all.
