    Default It was too hard to find a program this year

    In past years, it's been really easy to get those little program books that list all of the stages and set times. this year it seemed like it was really hard. i didn't find one until i went into the VIP area, and as i walked around with it all weekend, people kept asking where/how i got it.

    i'm thinking this might be because of the whole Coachella iPhone app that has all of the set times. also, the festival seems to be trying to be more sustainable and produce less waste. still, it seems like programs were in really high demand.

    They had them at the merch stand. Both Day and Night covers too.

    Not everyone has an iphone.

    People handed them out as you walked in or go to the KROQ tent.

    They were in the KROQ tent, people were handing them out at the entrance, they were at the merch booth, they were at the locker rental table, they were at the water refill stations.

    If by "they were too hard to find" you really mean, "they were fucking everywhere and totally easy to find", then I agree homie.

    Weird. I had no problem with this, and in fact people kept on giving them to me. I saw schedule booklets at the locker rental tent, the merch tent, the info booth, being handed out by people standing at the inner entrance gates on both Friday and Saturday, and the water refill stations.

    I had tons of the daytime covers, but I went on a hunt Sunday to find the night cover and finally found one.

    Man, is there anything people won't complain about? I saw the schedule booklets in many places all three days.

    Last year I had more of a problem. I was expecting to be handed one at the gate like usual but no dice. This year they were everywhere. Although I had a couple friends come late Sunday and I had to give them my booklet.

    the logical place to look would be the tent right at the front gate marked INFO at the top

    Where exactly were you looking for them?

    There were shitloads in the merch tent, which is the first stop I usually make every year. There were assloads at the Info Tent.

    They were hard to find...on Friday afternoon. Everyone kept asking at merch about them and nobody had any. Every other time I saw them readily available.

    Did anyone else notice there were two different covers?

    The 09 "day" cover had the Raconteurs on it, and the "night" cover had a picture of Love and Rockets on it.

    I couldn't find one anywhere but the merch tent (on Saturday afternoon), and then they wouldn't allow us to have one each for the 4 people in my group. Sucked. They weren't handing them out at the entrance when I came in on Friday at 3-ish.
