    Coachella kind of revived the whole festival concept after the implosions of Lollapalooza, Lilith Fair and what not...Also, I have been going to the damn thing for 7 years..so I am a little biased...Though I loved All Tomorrow's Parties when they had it in California for a bit...The 2001 curated by Sonic Youth was excellent...

    The poll may have been slightly improved if you took Coachella out of the list, then. I think it's also due to the fact many bands/artists stop by California that many don't feel the need to go to festivals, and quite frankly, it's expensive unless it's "in your own backyard".

    ACL 07's gonna be fuckin' awesome

    yeah. I knew Coachella would blow everything else away, but I really wanted to see how many votes the others got. It seem that the coachella crowd is way more smug that other festival crowds. at bonnaroo you meet people from EVERYWHERE. MOre than half, im sure, at coachella are people from that area. I'll be roadtrippin from ft worth texas! should be a blast! I hope the vibe is as free flowing at coachella

    I know what you mean. Being it was my first festival, ACL '06 totally spoiled me, so I hope the Coachella vibe's not... what I fear.

    What I'm saying is, at Coachella, it seems most of those people only go to coachella. Where at other fests, ALOT of the people are from all over the place, and go to several fests.

    Rock on! I am going to both Coachella and Bonnaroo this year, as well as Free(Ozz)Fest! Also got tix to see the Police w/Foo Fighters at LA Dogers Stadium! Going to be the best summer EVER for concerts!


    I voted for Bonnaroo on the poll, just because I love the 'chill' friendly vibe of Bonnaroo, but I loved Coachella last year. Coachella definantly gets my vote for the best festival site. The pretty views and nice green grass at Coachella were a pleasant surprise last year.
    But the best festival I have EVER been to was Lollapalloozas 1 & 2!!!!
    ------------------------------------------------------
    I felt like I'd just watched something culturally significant. Actually, Nirvana came to mind. I hope this is Arcade Fire's coming out party.

    Recent studies at Yale have shown that being an asshole is detrimental to one's health. Professor Sweetlove, a Psychology professor, came on record as saying:
    "Assholes and local desert rats tend to live shorter lives and have less consensual sexual relations than non assholes. It could be due to lower testoserone levels or a chemical imbalance in the brain but some people are just wired to be.... well.... assholes"

    bonnaroo is the motherfucking shit. music till the sun comes up. drugs everywhere. no cops. almost no cops. but coachella will always be my first love and i'll always go back to her. the cool thing is that we have an open relationship and she doesn't mind if I do other chicks, I mean festivals.

    SXSW is the most epic but it is hardly comparable to Coachella. It is also the least accessible for many but in many ways is the most fun!

    Coachella is the most beautiful of course though!
