    I have a feeling that they'll learn from their mistakes this year.

    I had no idea Broken Social Scene was so popular. That kinda makes me happy.

    Yuck. More or less dust than Coachella? Well, I guess it would help that there's no on-site camping.

    If I can find someone willing to split the cost of a cheap hotel, I am totally doing that next year. I know camp and trainchella are fun and all but my allergies can't take it.

    ANYWAY, logistical nightmare or not, Golden Gate Park is a good place to have a festival. I think a smaller one would be really nice.

    There was no dirt at all. I don't really know what Nationocean was talking about. It was all grass, similar to Coachella, albeit not mowed to perfection like a polo field is, and that's about it. And of course there was no dust because of the immense humidity. Dust comes as a result of dry weather. San Francisco is everything but dry.

    Gotta love the fog.

    Humidity is great when it's not hot. When it is hot, fuck humidity in the ass.

    I thought I read in the SF Chronicle that proposals for the festival were due to the City Parks & Rec deptarment for review on Dec. 19. Anyone know if there were multiple submittals? bballarl, perhaps? seems like you know quite a bit about this festival. do you work for APE or SuperFly?

    anyways, as for wishlist... I would like to see Franz Ferdinand, Band of Horses, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and the Beastie Boys.

    I think he's talking about the area that you walked through to get between the larger stages. It was very dusty. It's been dry here for the last couple of years, and there was no grass in that area, so there was a lot of dust in the air. This part of the city used to be sand dunes, there is definitely dust.

    Well the entire area around the main field that wasn't grass was nothing but dirt. And there was plenty of dust, at least enough for me to think "I should bring a bandana".

    As far as rumors, there was LOTS of reggae, so it wouldn't surprise me to see a Marley on the lineup. And what the hey, throw Matisyahu in there. And lets hope they're ganna make it so you can actually see/hear the Sutro stage (Beck/Cake) if you're not up close to it or a VIP. That would rock because it doesn't matter who's playing if half the crowd can't hear it. Better yet, make that entire area setup Sahara style and book some electronic/dance acts, there are plenty of us Bay Area folk who would enjoy that. Glitch Mob is local

    They'd better. I don't think I'll return unless someone shows me changes are being made, or a dance tent, that would cover a lot of flaws.

    oh and another note, there was a bit of dirt, but that was on the track encircling the main polo field. but not enough to be annoying.

    I know nothing. I only was with APE for the summer. I do, however, know that they will do a great job if they get the festival back.

    looks like Another Planet Entertainment won the bid and have been given a three year contract to repeat the event....

    From the SF Chronicle on 1/30/09....

    "The promoter who filled Golden Gate Park with music fans last year for a three-day festival has been given a three-year contract to repeat the event - a deal that could bring the city's parks department up to $1.7 million a year in extra cash.

    Another Planet Entertainment, a Bay Area-based promoter, was unanimously picked over two other groups by a six-person committee that included city officials as well as a representative from a group dedicated to preserving open space in the world-famous park. A lease agreement will be negotiated in the next few weeks.

    The concert lineup has not yet been finalized, according to the promoter.

    The August event will bring badly needed revenue to the Recreation and Park Department, which lost 17 employees to midyear cuts and, like all city agencies, is being asked to shave at least 12 percent off next year's budget, a total of $8 million.

    City officials said they plan to work with community members, elected officials and city agencies to prevent last year's hiccups - a dearth of transit and parking, and too much traffic. The city is aiming to learn from last year's mistakes, and in addition to promising more outreach, officials acquiesced to several neighborhood demands, such as ending the Sunday show by 7:30 p.m.

    Raymond Holland of the Planning Association for the Richmond, who will meet with city officials today, acknowledged that some neighbors are opposed to the concert regardless of any concessions, but said his group understands that the department needs money. In addition to staffing shortfalls, the parks department needs to make an $1.7 billion in repairs at parks and recreation facilities.

    "Last year's experience with Another Planet Entertainment was good. It went well compared to other concerts they have that don't produce money for the city," he said. "We are going to insist they do a better job of coordinating city departments - if there was a shortcoming last year, it was that. ... and there has got to be outreach and announcements."

    Holland also said he was happy that the city is starting the planning process so early. Supervisor Carmen Chu, who represents the Sunset District, also seemed optimistic, but said the promoters and department need to make sure they do adequate outreach. She noted that last year, access was restricted to a large portion of the park not just during the concert, but for days before and after the event, limiting people's ability to use the public space and shutting down popular commuter routes.

    Last year's concert, headlined by Radiohead, brought 130,000 people to the park. It brought in $815,000 under an agreement that allowed the city to collect a base rent plus a portion of revenues. This year, Another Planet has promised a minimum of $950,000, plus $1 from every ticket sold, said parks spokeswoman Lisa Seitz Gruwell. They also are responsible for reimbursing the city for its expenses, such as extra police and parking control officers.

    If the attendance stays the same, she said, the department will receive a little more than $1.2 million; if it reaches the 180,000 capacity, the agency will get $1.7 million.

    Seitz Gruwell said it's a good deal, noting that Chicago made $1.5 million from last year's Lollapalooza concert in Grant Park, which was attended by 225,000 people."

    Yay! This is some great news. I would have been uncomfortable with someone other than APE getting it. I can now happily look forawrd to three more years of OSL. And, also, I'm officially counting on The Dead to headline this thing in 2009. Should be awesome.

    I don't see Phish playing OSL. It's possible, but not very likely.

    I could see...
    Friday:
    THE FLAMING LIPS
    Saturday:
    PEARL JAM
    Sunday:
    THE DEAD


    That would make for great headliners.

    Pretty much... I'm trying to be more selective this year, but I'm hoping The Prodigy and Fever Ray dates are announced soon.
