    Default Why isn't coachella 2009 the last weekend of april?

    I really quite angry that I can't go to coachella this year because my exams aren't finished yet and they usually finish right before coachella (last weekend of april). Does anyone know why they are breaking tradition this year?

    Can you take your exams early? Do whatever is necessary.

    from the coachella 2009 dates confirmed thread...

    Didn't see this mentioned anywhere...

    "First, Coachella is moving up early in April. Why? The answer lies in Louisiana, of all places. AEG Live, the concert promotion company that became a partner in Coachella in 2001, is also the corporate engine these days behind the grand old New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, which will be April 24-26 and April 30-May 3. Both massive events are now national (or international even) in their target audience and media coverage and for logistical reasons the decision was made to spread them out a bit."

    They need to look into changing the date, they basically screw over Canadian post secondary students, way to put the even right during finals.

    Your logistics regarding the other festivals are not well thought out, why would they segregate students and make the festivals dates as inconvenient as possible, because that's what they've done.

    please don't fuel the canadian-haters.

    for the record, canadian undergraduate exams begin on the 17th.

    you might have to miss friday, on the off chance that you have an exam on day one, but if you fly out sunday night you can still go.
    it sucks, but come on, dude. I'm sorry, but I fully accept that they don't give a rat's ass about canadian college kids. I'd say that's 5-10 thousand tickets, MAYBE. they can make it up elsewhere. especially if somehow the cooler spring weather holds.

    just... yeah. it sucks. I agree. but don't get all self-important.

    Exams here in Nevada dont start until the first week in may, so Im quite happy that they changed the date to earlier

    hence why 24-26 would be ideal

    you would still have the full week of the 27-30 before exams started for you.

    this year they put them right when exams start for Canadian students just to accomodate a Jazz festival and Heritage days....WOW....who cares...

    I love the change in dates, but I also live three hours away. I'm sure you are disappointed, but hey, can't change them dates now.

    When haven't they been? It would be nice to see a statistical break down of which countries the tickets are purchased for.

    sddoctor follows the same lack of care the events date planners followed as well by the looks of it.
