    Default On complaining about Coachella...

    I've heard a lot of people bitch others out for voicing complaints about Coachella 2010 and want to put in my two cents. Sure, there will always be people moaning and groaning over tiny details, but there were some definite problems for this year's Coachella, mostly in regards to the number of people there and the camping, that seem universally felt. We all appreciate the work that GV puts into planning each fest, but if you're going to improve something like Coachella, you have to be vigilant about calling the event organizers out on their failures!

    Coachella 2011 Wishlist:
    More showers/better organization
    Crowd control
    More water stations
    Move the After Hours stage away from camping area

    This is a very valid point! I feel that there is a difference between saying "There should have been more showers, more water stations, etc" and "Coachella 2010 sucked cause I had to wait 4 hours to shower."

    One is constructive (as you have illustrated), while the other promotes negativity for the sake of bitching.

    The unfortunate thing about the people who are bringing up valid complaints without being constructive (in the form of pure bitching) is that they are less likely to be heard by those who have the power to change things. I'm not saying to roll over and take it-rather think about the most effective way to promote the change you desire.

    Fuck "constructive" criticism. Everybody knows why shit failed so hard. It all comes down to not being willing or able to handle the amount of extra people they sold tickets for or allowed to sneak in.
    If people are pissed off enough to second guess going next year then bitching is probably a valid reaction.

    I was in one of the tents very near to this and I just used to beat to get me to sleep. It worked like a charm.

    I wasnt nearby, but i could definetly hear it from my spot. i forget who on this board suggested tylenol pm, but THANK YOU! in addition to ear plugs, i had no problem sleeping at all.

    Im not sure how useful this combo would have been had i been close to it though
