    Default Re-Name the Outdoor Stage

    Every stage other than the Outdoor Stage goes by the name of a desert. I think it is time to give the Outdoor Stage a proper name. Which do you prefer?

    According to wikipedia, Deserts are defined as areas with an average annual precipitation of less than 250 millimetres (10 in) per year,or as areas where more water is lost by evapotranspiration than falls as precipitation. The the 10 largest deserts, by area, are:

    1 Antarctic
    2 Arctic
    3 Sahara
    4 Arabian
    5 Gobi
    6 Kalahari
    7 Patagonian
    8 Great Victoria
    9 Syrian
    10 Great Basin

    It should be called the Arctic. Or, for relevance, as stated above, Sonoran.

    Thank you, this is an excellent topic to bring up at cocktail parties. Unfortunately, Coachella is a hot desert so we'd have to go with Arabian or Sonoran, not Arctic or Antarctic.

    how 'bout naming the stage after a desert in south america, europe or australia since we've already covered the asian (gobi), north american (mojave) and african (sahara) regions.

    but if we're OK w/ another asian desert, i think Thar would be a super stage name.

    18 responses and nobody points out that it's not even called "The Outdoor Stage" to begin with?

    I mean, no one really ever refers to it as "The Outdoor Theater". My wife calls it "The Corner Stage". But it's kind of a crucial point when you are bitching about it's proper name.

    The Coachella Stage isn't named after a fucking desert either, it's named after a valley. Know what's a way more accurate name for The Outdoor Theater than any desert name? "The Outdoor Theater." Because it's really, really, really outdoors, and it has fucking bleachers to sit on. Outdoor Theater.

    Believe it or not, I actually debate whether to write "Arabia" or "Arabian," "Syria" or "Syrian," but I decided to follow precedent ("Sahara" rather than "Saharan"). I do like the idea of Sonora/n though too.
