    I guess country music fans dont care about corporate sponsors.

    The indie kids that go to coachella care though.

    Personaly, as long as Coachella doesnt change its stage names to sponsor names, im fine with as many sponsors as they throw at us.

    Nah, country fans dont get all butt hurt about corporate sponsorship. They are all bearded as long as they are getting the twang. The attenedees that own Tundras will get exited and Yell "WOOOOOOOOOOOO TOYOTA!"

    I dunno. The problem with the fight-it-out mentality is that when you have a big name at the end of the night, people are just going to sit at the front barricade all day long, even when they probably don't know/like the bands playing earlier in the day. If selling special gold circle pit tickets would prevent that from happening because people would feel free to mingle and then come later in the day and know they still had a spot saved up front, I might be for it. Especially if it was a first-come-first-served or priority was given to members of the various bands' fan clubs or something instead of just being super expensive. Although I think it still probably wouldn't totally solve the problem of people sitting at one stage all day.

    Terrible idea. No exclusive ticket areas in front of any stages.

    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.

    I say why not!
    Fuck it, its not like last year a bunch of assholes didn't just hang around the main stage on sunday anyway. Those poor dudes that sing always take the weather with you.
    Anyway fuck em. it should be a small circle in the area where the security can walk around. and tickets should be 1,000 dollars a day.

    You know you'd pay to have a reserved place up front - that is, if you had the money.

    that's their sacrifice to see the band they wish. if bowie played (which i highly doubt) i would probably spend most, if not all, of the day against the railing. that's what's great about GA, if you don't like where you are you can move.

    A big fat fucking no.
    Fight your way to the front like everyone else.
    Recent studies at Yale have shown that being an asshole is detrimental to one's health. Professor Sweetlove, a Psychology professor, came on record as saying:
    "Assholes and local desert rats tend to live shorter lives and have less consensual sexual relations than non assholes. It could be due to lower testoserone levels or a chemical imbalance in the brain but some people are just wired to be.... well.... assholes"

    Worst idea ever.

    Waiting for hours to make sure you get a good spot for your favorite band makes the experience all the better. Ushering yuppie shits to the front when their good and ready is so lame.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks waiting all day for your fave band isn't the crime of the century...you do what you have to do...

    I did it last year for Faithless in the Sahara tent...it was sort of worth it, no, it was definitely worth it!

    This year, it will be Sasha & Digweed on Saturday...maybe I won't die of thirst and faint...

    The rest of the time, I'll take my chances...mingling is cool...

    And to the question of VIP tickets...

    HELL NO!

    For me I already spend way too much for tickets for 5 and 2 hotel rooms not to mention all the food! But if the crazy fans who stay in one spot all day in front of bands they are not interested in and destroy others pleasure could have a guarantee of their spot I say I am all for it--Get out of the way when you are not the least bit interested in what's on Stage--there is so much going on --go have fun somewhere else. This is also my complaint about concerts lately--loud partying people who don't really want to hear the band and keep fans from enjoying the experience!

    I would actually consider changing my vote, if the extra revenue was directly allocated into quality headliners.

    No it isn't. implies that the rest of us secretly wish to be rich snobs. Either you have that it's all about the music and I'll fight for my spot mentality... Or you're punk and you want to walk to the front after lounging while everyone around you glares.
