Thread: Why we should care that this line-up disappoints.

  1. #1

    Default Why we should care that this line-up disappoints.

    Every year I have defended Coachella, always able to find a handful of acts that weren't on the main stages and yet made the festival worthwhile. I have defended the festival for seven years, I proposed to my wife at the festival. I agree that it has been nice as less people come to the festival after the crowds of the Radiohead year, but can't help but wonder as we tell people not to come to the festival does that hurt the festival. As people stop attending the concert, they won't be able to attract the bands they once did. This year they clearly could not get three days of a solid lineup together, they should have gone with 2 or even maybe 1 day again to keep the festival's reputation solid. Instead they went with three days that will have less people at them. Three days might make them more money then two, but they will continue to have trouble attracting the bands they once did as the festivals reputation lingers on until it dies.

    I can't believe you went through the trouble of making an account to post this.

    I read the post all the time, I just spent the whole night digging through this lineup trying to find something that was new and exciting, listening to any band I was not familiar with, and I am just angry. An hour or so of listening to new music versus 1 minute to create an account was nothing.

    And they won't... ever... they'd lose 1/3 of their revenue for starters. Also, I hate to break it to Dr. Lufs-al-ot, but it's just your opinion. For every hater, there are others who approve of the lineup.

    I was initially going to post something defending the lineup, but it is really pointless...

    This year will be awesome, like every year.

    Yea. Alot of people, like many of my friends last year, won't know how much they're missing out once April rolls around. It's a different lineup for sure, but it has some very strong point, and there will be more added. Just like last year.

    this year's coachella is going to be great; end of story.

    comparing year to year is silly. do you not have a blast every year?

    Based on my experience of trying to find travel companions amongst my friends, this year's lineup is a thousand times better. Last year nobody I knew liked the initial lineup and I ended up flying down alone. This year, I've got 6+ friends asking about the festival.

    Actually, whats funny is that last year I thought the lineup was mega and it was almost impossible to get friends to go.

    This year I think it is (currently) a tad pale, and everyone wants to come.

    I completely agree. I think it's pretty awesome and it will be amazing. Plus guys, there's more surprises to come!

    Thank god they have Sunday. But even then all the bands I would see are mostly bands who already have a solid reputation. I literally checked out every band on there and over half of it is filled with horrible new acts. If Friday and Saturday would be combined it would be decent enough to go.

    I don't get people who complain about the Coachella line-up. They moan about certain acts being there, and then you ask them what should they replaced with and they come back with some Hot Chip/Boys Noise pile of junk which have both been there last year and I 'think' they were there the year before.

    Coachella need to get off this nu-rave/electro bandwagon. It's seriously shit.

    Friday is worth the price of a 3 day pass alone. Everything else is just bonus.

    Friday is incredible.

    Saturday's undercards are awesome, and it seems like it would be a super fun day in the Sahara. Plus some super rootsy bands like Drive By Truckers, Blitzen Trapper and Booker T to chill out to in the afternoon sun... but I love that kind of stuff.

    And Sunday is pretty bad ass too. Throbbing Gristle, Public Enemy, The Cure, Jenny Lewis, Late of the Pier... there's something for everyone.

    I'm cool with the line-up the way it is. Additions are a welcome bonus.
