I'm wondering if someone can crunch the numbers for me:

I define "new" as:

- Has not appeared at Coachella in the past 3 years (07 or 06 or 05).

I define "old" as:

- Everyone minus the "new" groups.


Also, I'm curious as to how many groups are:

"mainstream"

- have played venues larger than a typical night club in the US and were not supporting acts

"exclusive"

- everyone minus the "mainstream"

I think these ratios are really what I tell people going to Coachella is about. Hearing something you can't really get at your neighborhood venue (living in SF has its bonuses, but I digress).

I'll see if I can crunch them later, but if anyone else has the time, please feel free to do it.
