Thank you Blinken for answering the question as well. I see your point, you want it to become more exclusive in a way, to have better quality guests. I get that and I understand completely. It's just that the rest of us, who do like the same music and enjoy it just as you do, would like to be able to decide which days we want or can attend. I don't get why having a person next to you who may be discovering a great band is a bad thing. It seems I hear a lot that you want more quality fans or whatnot, but what's wrong with sharing this experience with someone who may not know what amazing band they are experiencing for the first time? I'm not that person but I wanted to share the Coachella experience with some people who aren't in the scene and let them experience it for the first time. It just so happens they can't go all three days for whatever reason.
And guedita, I mean, you sound like you're a representative of the festival sent out to make these arguments. I don't see your rage really in that people want to say, you know what,maybe I'll skip the first day and go the last two, or whatever. The beer policy and camp pricing sounds really great and it's a definite plus, but couldn't they make those changes without the 3-day policy? And no, it's not weak that some of us can't attend three days. Some of us have work or school or other things that won't allow us to attend a Friday or come back a Monday. And it's not only 269 for the whole weekend, in many cases it would be 269 + gas / flight + food + shelter + alcohol + drugs + anything else you want to imagine and that adds up, my dear.
And Monklish, just go listen to Yellowcard or some shit.
