    It is a fun contest. I see a few definite winning designs. The downside, though... the REAL lineup posters look a little... conservative now. Having gone back and looked at all the real posters in researching this mess, then contrasting those with some of the standout posters we have here... well, it raises the bar a little for the official poster release in 2011. They've accidentally given themselves a higher standard!
    Amen. Well said. Maybe they can pick someone to design next year's poster too. That would be wicked. And they'd get a headsup on the acts before everyone else. Don't know how it'd work but it would be great to do.

    Compare the official posters here (Especially 2001, 2002-05, and 2007) to some of these fakes, and they seem incredibly unoriginal by way of comparison. If those four official posters were in this thread, they would be getting torn apart for their lack of style.
    Sorry if I hurt your feelings. The "douchebaggery" comment was in reference to all the fake posters we're forced to endure every year. Some of which are great, some of which are funny, but most of which are just annoying. It was not aimed at you.

    Do me one favor, though?
    In the future, please do not belittle this amazing festival by comparing its past lineups to the deranged yearnings of unloved Photoshop addicts. (This contest notwithstanding.)

    Fair enough. You didn't hurt my feelings, just trying to stay ahead of the curve in the "stupid message board battles" context. There are definitely lots of crap posters every year... but this contest is producing some very high quality work. I don't mean to bag on the festival.

    But if next year's poster just has some clouds and the mountain footer, that'll seem awfully boring after all these inventive designs, you know?

    It will be interesting to see if any of next year's fakes crib these designs. Heh.

    Loathe as I am to admit this, I was just on Facebook, and found a glorious lil treat from Coachella. Some pics from Ryan Mastro Photography, including this gem of Richard Ashcroft. Now I know why I put them on my poster

    As person who was in high school in 1982, I am pleading with you to go back to the drawing board. Way too many groups missing on this poster.

    updated my original post for my 1975 poster, if it matters for those who are judging.

    Actually I'm pretty sure most of us that are actually going for the look of a Coachella poster aren't using templates.

    1991 Industrialchella. Big, black arsehole background.

    Don't have photoshop, but maybe I should submit one anyway. Use MS Word. Acrobrat PDF conversion as a theft deterrant.

Templates like those are out there and free for a reason, to save people time and to be used for fun. Which, if I'm not mistaken, is all this contest is for... Who has time to create their own art for a contest that nobody is even sure will lead to anything?

    Anyway, I guess, sorry for being industrious and using the internet to find a couple free images for a fictional poster.

    ****SPOILER ALERT****
    The next poster I submit will also not feature my own artwork. And neither will the next 50 from anyone else.

    i spent hours creating my own artwork for this last night. suck a dick. my 1996 poster will crush your very being.

That, right there, is designing using a template.

    Kudos on your music selection and I've been enjoying all your banter here but, come on, 90% of the posters in this forum are just reusing the exact same 'template' and then styling to personal taste, and there's nothing wrong with that. Some are just backdrops to really great band selections, some are cool designs with ludicrous selections and some are between the two.

    Listen, all I'm doing is using this to pass the time as I'm stuck in bed with a broken leg. It's fun and a good education in music - nothing more, nothing less. And until someone actually notifies people that they've won something or someone has a pass in hand from this contest, it's all just for fun. Let it be...
    I don't think you understand what a template is. We were provided with the images of the header, the landscape, and told what the font is. That's it.

    all the way back in 2008? the polo grounds have hosted hot air balloon festivals, along with a rave and pearl jam (goldenvoice production).

    Oh, I wasn't using it as any sort of crutch or new idea. I was just saying that because it's probably what would have happened.
