Thread: Weak Lineup

    Unhappy Weak Lineup

    Just want to say that I have been so stoked every year for Coachella and this year is a real bummer. I have been 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08 and its always "wowed" me. But come on, The Killers, really? The Cure, really? Half the bands have been to LA in the last 6 months and I have already seen them. The Cure couldnt even sell out the Santa Barbara Bowl that holds only 4600, and they expect them to draw a big crowd for Coachella? If you have seen in the past the single day tickets sell out fast, withen the first week, usually. This year, they have plenty to sell, Humm? Recession, Maybe. But, I am not totally putting it out, Coachella is such a great event and I have always had a blast. Its just that I have seen over half the acts. Every year I always see something I have never heard or seen before and really liked it and I usually see about 6 to 8 acts a day, True True. But, this is the 10 year aniversary and this is what we get. Not every act is bad its just not as heavy as the years in the past. Just wondering if any other Coachella vets feel the same. Supper Bummed.

    I'm not sure single day tickets have ever sold out within a week.

    Thats really not the point, regardless. The lineup is pretty sad.

    If you can't find at least 5 bands per day that you want to see, then you have not looked hard enough.

    I will completely admit that this is the weakest lineup since I've been attending (2006), but it's still easily worth my money. I'd gladly pay twice what it currently costs for this "shitty" lineup.

    I could argue this with any previous initial lineup. Of course I'm not going to because you're just an oblivious dumbshit like the rest of the persons who think the lineup sucks. I'm going to school now bye.

    Someone on the news last night, here in Vegas, was complaining because the Paul McCartney tickets at The Joint are starting at $190 and go up to $750 or something like that. As if that person would be able to score tickets anyways...

    Such an original thread.

    Honestly, I don't think ANYONE has complained about the line-up and made a thread about it yet.

    In 07 Sunday and Saturday single day tickets sold out in less than 24 hours, yes?

    Either way, if the thread starter did any research into the names on the lineup they weren't familiar with I think they'd be signing a different tune.

    Hmmm I'm not sure.

    I didn't buy my tickets right away and I was fine. I honestly wouldn't worry about it selling out. 07 was different.

    Yeah...and you really are a lost cause If you can't find at least 3-4 acts per day that you like.

    There's way more than M.A.N.D.Y. and TRV$-DJAM. Look harder.

    And TRV$-DJAM aren't electronic.

    I'm beyond trying to convince anyone to go to Coachella at this point...if they don't like it, they'll miss out on something great and fun, and eventually regret it later

    Argument: The lineup sucks

    Evidence: Two of the bands that are playing

    Conclusion: FAIL

    You've been to Coachella six times without feeling the need to join the message board? Or is this another alias like whinywhiner?

    Sure I would have liked to have been at last years festival but this year has plenty of great musick to enjoy as well.

    If you do go to Mexico I'm pretty sure it will also be lame for you. Some people are just that way.

    I've convinced twice as many friends to go with me this year vs. last year, all based on the lineup. Go figure.. 07>09>08 so far..

    You have had a weak life. You should just cancel it like Langredo.
    Upcoming Shows:
    * Dillon Francis + Anamanaguchi -- December 28th

    Going to Weekend 1 of Coachella 2014
