    Default ARE WE GOING TO BE FUCKING CATTLE?

    From The Desert Sun arcticle comes the disturbing news that GV expects the crowds to be at the record attendance of 60,000 per day!

    What happened to what Paul T. said about lowering the cap, for comfort sake? I guess a few more people is a a lot more money in the end.

    Traffic and the tents are going to fucking suck...again.

    I'm going to get there at 8AM every morning and lick everything at the festival.

    Good luck guys.

    P.S. I have Paris Hilton's herpes.

    Great. This makes, what, the third year in a row they said they'd lower the attendance cap and then didn't follow through? As long as they open BOTH FUCKING GATES at the end of EVERY NIGHT. Tents are going to suck ass.

    Sunday was more crowded than Saturday. And that is only a newspaper. We won't know until we get there.

    I agree, it seems as though every thread in the lineup section has someone complaining about something...be it RAGE or attendance caps.

    ^MY OPINION^

    Also, I AM aware this is a message board.

    This is not a stupid thread, it addresses what GV has been promising - but not following through on for quite some time.

    We die hards have VERY few complaints and Paul T. said he listened to us concerning how cramped it was becoming - in 03, 04, 05, he has said they would lower attendance, but that hasn't panned out.

    I'm just saying 50,000 is MUCH better than 60,000, for everyone: trying to pack into the Sahara, or tied up in traffic, or trying to leave, or waiting for merch, or waiting for water, or waiting to get in...etc.

    Wasn't a memo - it has been in both the LA times and Desert Sun in years past.

    Do you enjoy how packed it is? I guess we'll live with it, but it was quite nice in terms of attendance from 1999 to 2003. Still a lot of people, but you could actually see the stage and fit INTO the tents.

    I am pointing this out, because the last thing COACHELLA needs to be is another Lollapalooza, which has turned very crowded, very over-sold. Lolla has turned into a monster, a bloated corporate, pig of a monster, and I don't EVER want to look at Coachella that way.

    I love it you see.

    I am not excited for the crowdedness, I am also not excited for people (not necessarily you C DUB) bitching about how crowded it is.

    Gotcha my man, I understand.

    I can sometimes get on a role pointing out the negative - I will make an effort to stop. Seriously, I always have fun, no matter. Its about friends, tunes and for me, a weekend far away.

    Peter Gibbons: Yeah. The coversheet. I know, I know. Uh, Bill talked to me about it.
    Dom Portwood: Yeah. Did you get that memo?
    Peter Gibbons: Yeah. I got the memo. And I understand the policy. And the problem is just that I forgot the one time. And I've already taken care of it so it's not even really a problem anymore.
    Dom Portwood: Ah! Yeah. It's just we're putting new coversheets on all the TPS reports before they go out now. So if you could go ahead and try to remember to do that from now on, that'd be great. All right!

    I can deal with the increased crowds for the most part, I just really, really hope they have the two separate exits open again. The wait to get out of the venue grounds was astoundingly awful last year, easily the worst of any year i've been there. Trying to fit 50,000 people through one hole 15 feet wide is just asking for trouble.

    I hope they open both gates on the way out. That was hell after Tool.
