    Default CONGRATULATIONS, COACHELLA!!!

    Coachella just won Festival of the Year yet again at the Pollstar Awards tonight. How many times is this now? Five? Good job, Coach. Keep up the good work!

    I imagine 07 since 08 hasn't gone down yet.

    Coachella was the only American fest to have Jarvis Cocker last year, and it got Rage and JAMC to reunite, so how could it not win?

    Is there somewhere to see all the results for all categories for the Pollstar awards?

    Good news about 'chella winning the top fest ... I thought last year was a bit underrated honestly ...

    I figured it was 07. I was just wondering if there was poll or something on the festival line ups that out as of right now.
    But yes. Coachella 07 had the best line up last year. Actually, pretty much tied with Vegoose 07.

    yeah ... sounded like bunk.

    I'm honestly looking for the Pollstar Poster of the Year awards ... I'm sure it'll come out tomorrow.

    Coachella should win that one as well.

    Wow,even without a Ferris Wheel,VIP Risers,or choo-choo tracks for the wheelchairs!
    I've been to the Us Festival in '83,a few Lollas back in the '90s,as well as a few Warped tours,and without a smidgen of doubt Coachella tops them all in every way imaginable.

    Even Rocklahoma.

    Taste great. Less filling.
    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.

    Linky .... Pollstar Winners


    I guess the industry folks see the posters there and vote on them ... so that winner will come out in a few days.

    This one I'm curious about ...

    Red Rocks Award / Best Small Outdoor Venue
    Greek Theatre


    I assume that's the one by you L.A. folks and not the one up here in Berkeley ... but, Im not sure.

    Ugh. I really dislike the Greek in LA. Expensive parking and subpar sound, plus it always seems so large even if you're fairly close.

    For a second I thought you were talking about food and I was going to say you should go to Papa Cristo's. I'm not good at thread-hopping.

    I'd assume they mean Berkeley because it's much better, and they are listing winners from all over the country.

    Also I'm not sure what it says that Coachella is in the company of Hannah Montana for these awards.

    I will go to Papa Cristo's, because I love Greek food.

    (That's in LA, yes?)

    Yes, it's at the intersection of Normandie and Pico, so it's good if you're on your way to or from downtown. It's a little grocery store/deli type place, but they also have a full kitchen and tables. Very good greek food.

    i posted this last year, so repete but for any neebies .... the reason the best small outdoor venue is called the red rocks award is because every time they had the award, red rocks won, without exception ... so they thought that wasnt fair ... so red rocks is never in the running any more but the award was named in its honor ... thats pretty cool ... and btw PF, how was the event last night? we would all just die to go, and you were bummed you had to go and miss survivor lol ... canx**
