    Talking The Desert Sun's Coachella 2009 article

    Internet buzz leads to Coachella predictions

    Matt Wolfe • The Desert Sun • October 31, 2008

    With less than six months before the desert fill with hipsters, partygoers, and some of the best music on the planet, blogs and even newspapers around the world are trying to figure out what the promoters have up their sleeve for the tenth installment of the desert fiesta.

    Next year, April 17, 18, & 19, tens of thousands of people will migrate to the Empire Polo Grounds in Indio for a weekend-long music festival. Each year, the organizers behind the event, Goldenvoice, pool together an eclectic mix of artists ranging from mainstream pop acts to very underground alternative groups. While the lineup normally steers awat from traditional pop music, the past two years have featured Madonna and Prince, respectively.

    Needless to say, the anticipation over who will hit the five stages forces some people to begin rumors of who will be performing.

    Just last week, British news magazine 'The Sun' reported that The Smiths were likely candidates for the headlining spot (Read the full story).

    Of course, their article contains all the makings of a Coachella rumor story. Band insider? Check. Group which swore they'd never reunite? Check. Ludicrous amount of money being offered? Check.

    This seems a bit premature, though. Generally, the lineups really don't start taking shape until the year of the festival. Even the big rumors aren't normally until much closer to the festival. A story from the LA Times, which speculated that Prince would be added to the 2008 lineup didn't go out until March 18th, barely a month before the gates opened (Read the full story).

    Now, just like last year, and the year before, fake lineup posters are popping up on the internet, inlcuding this one that was found on MySpace:



    Who is really behind these things? Do they really think that people believe all of this? Is it some kind of conspiracy?

    While there is a strong chance that ten, maybe fifteen, of these artists will be performing at the festival, the fact remains that we likely won't know much about the lineup until early 2009. That's just the way it goes.

    The Desert Sun must be really hurting for news to quote a tabloid rag.

    That's what I used to say until I actually saw one. Huge $$$ involved to play that sport, and really, there's no prizes other than a trophy and being able to say your team won the title.

    I was the bar manager at the polo club and clubhouse where you guys party the night before Coachella for almost 4 years. Polo is like football in a way...except the players are depending on the 1200 plus pounds underneath them to reach the goal, plus trying to get the ball there with a mallet, no less! The field that everybody camps on for the fest is actually 3 playing fields for 3 polo matches going at the same time! (If you think the grass looks green when you're camping, you should see it before those horses thrash the shit out of it!

    And, trust me...All that hi-caliber-la-di-da shit goes out the window once they start to party after a match and I get them shitfaced! That 2nd picture was me right after a patron (owner) came in a announced open bar with about 150 drinkers VS Me. (Guess you could say I was the second round polo ball that night.)
    Its like the Infinite Monkey Theorem, if you put X amount of monkeys in a room with a typewriter and ask them to give you Shakespeare 99% of them will fling their shit at you while the other 1% will masturbate in the corner.

    They should play polo using elephants instead of horses.

    Of all the excellent articles I've read about nothing, this is the emptiest article about nothing I've read.

    I can't wait until their investigative report about why it gets so dark at night.
