    Exclamation Coachella VS lollapalooza

    There might be an old poll on this already, but this is now a good few weeks after Lolla. For those of you that went to both, what do you think was better? And This counts for everything, environment, people and what not. If you went to one and not the other, that's OK too and tell us what you think!.
    Please inform!

    I voted Coachella, but Lolla had a better lineup this year.

    The Lolla lineup was close but I don't get how with that many stages they can't avoid some of those conflicts. I did like the more rare Coachella lineup. We will never see Waters and Prince there again, we possibly might not see them tour again but who knows and we got the only Portishead performance in the states. There was so much great stuff at Coachella. I'm biased though, that was one of the most fun weekends I have had in my life.

    I only went to Coachella so it seems proper that I vote them...but having RATM and NIN and many other awesome bands in three days is extraordinary...
    However, you don't get Kraftwerk, Portishead and Prince back to back in one night

    that is my whole thing with this, yeah coachella got the "rare acts" but rare acts don't really mean shit to me when I don't care for them(I won't mention names). For me the only real rare acts I cared about this year was Portishead, The Verve, and to some extent Roger Waters. Thing is I would much rather have Radiohead, RAGE,NIN, EITS over a lot of the big bands coachella got like Prince, Aphex, Kraftwerk. Being exclusive is something I don't get hung up on.

    I've only been the the old-style traveling Lollapalooza, and while it seemed great back then, Coachella now is far superior.

    Coachella.... has the best crowds for a concert ever... amazing sets, amazing lineup, organized greatly, no sound issues such as the Perry stage this year... The headliners were alot better at Lollapalooza this year, but headliners dont make the entire festival...

    Kraftwerk -> Portishead -> Prince

    i think even future coachellas will be hard pressed to beat that night.

    I have never been to lolla but my sister has gone several years in a row and she said that the coachella vibe is more me, that lolla would stress me out too much so i will stick to coachella and be happy.

    Lolla just seems too much like a spot for hipsters and scene kids.
    And especially since it's in chicago, that doesn't make it better.

    Coachella is in the desert on an open field.
    This is an easy choice

    Lolla needs more than 2-3 decent DJs and the lolla crowd takes douche-baggery to a whole new level. Think midwest meat heads. That said, Lolla is a great fest who always gets really good acts.

    Coachella is simply untouchable. The combination of atmosphere, production, variety of genres, depth of the lineup, onsite camping and, a music savvy crowd make it the best.

    I have been to Coachella since 2004.

    I live in Chicago and have been to all the "new age Lollapaloozas".

    Coachella wins without a doubt.

    Please don't compare the two ever again.

    Only thing Coachella could use are longer set times like Bonnaroo.

    Coachella kicks all festivals asses heres why: Prince playing for over 2 hours. Kraftwerk, Portishead... Name me one festival that has those three 2 gether?? NONE! Roger Waters "dark side of the moon" then of course there was Boys Noize, Holy Fuck, The Verve, Fatboy Slim, Spiritualized, Goldfrapp, Aphex Twin ect ect.... What a great weekend. The 3 Coachella virgins I took this year all said it was the best time of their lives. So there!

    What makes Coachella great is its something like this every year. Thats why so many people buy passes before the lineup is announced (myself included). We know the bands are going to be stellar and the experience unforgettable... every year.

    I still think its hilarious how much people freaked out when the lineup first came out.
