    Default That Silly State Farm Tent

    I'm glad my car insurance provider taught people how to DJ and played Coachella favorites like Cece Peniston's "Finally."

    Cheesiest thing at the festival.

    The only real use of this tent was the free internet. They had several computers set up that weren't locked to the state farm site. I saw people posting on facebook, twitter, myspace, etc.

    I've worked for State Farm for the past six+ years. I saw this and just shook my head. They had something like this at Bamboozle Left that was equally cheesy.

    The funny part is they don't just let employees volunteer- they hire marketing firms to bring kids in that they think "fi the scene". By "fit the scene" I mean break all the dress code rules we actually have to follow while working at public events.

    They taught people how to DJ instead of fixing the damage that my car had taken last week when stolen.

    Good Job State Farm.

    AEG Live recently announced that such brands as AT&T, FYE, PlayStation, MLB, and State Farm have signed deals with many of its festivals. And in a tough economy, Phillips says that Goldenvoice president Paul Tollett has lightened up on not allowing more sponsors to enter Coachella.

    As long as the sponsors' logos aren't splattered all over the Main Stage like at Stagecoach or Lolla I don't see what the big deal is.

    I actually would love to be pitched life insurance in such a setting. I wouldn't purchase of course, but the experience would make me a better person. Especially if Ivy does the pitching.

    I watched hockey in there. Zipped in, checked the scores, and zipped back out, fresh as a daisy. Loved that tent.
