    more likely that he was either paid less than he "felt" he deserved or didn't like his position on the line-up/set schedule and, thusly, took his marbles and went home.

    Yes. When all 3 day of a prestigious fest greatly appeal to you top to bottom, and single day passes aren't an option, you'll take that 3-day pass.

    Uh. They had an even bigger press release in 2008 (that had a ton of advance notice) for the full lineup announcement. There was nothing big that happened in 09 that caused 10-15K more people than normal the following year. Like I said, it was the perfect festival formula.

    Paul T and co. publicly stated they sold 75k tickets. Not that there were 75k people there a day - that they sold that many tickets. A few people might have sneaked in, but ultimately, they oversold the festival. Those people sneaking in didn't help, but they aren't the central ones to blame for the fest being as crowded as it was.

    Fat Freddy's Drop

    http://www.nzherald.co.nz/entertainm...ectid=10696517

    They've been live at the Roundhouse.

    And now Kiwi collective Fat Freddy's Drop has won a spot at one of the biggest music festivals in the United States.

    The band is only the second New Zealand band - after Crowded House - to be lined up for the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.

    Well Iím supporting Hurts again around Europe and I think Iím going to be playing Coachella.

    So youíll be coming to the States?
    Yeah, Iím going to be coming there in the spring. I really want to go there now though but my music is quite more slow burn and itís more about the gradual process so thatís the way itís going to have to be but I want to go to America as soon as possible because I really love it.
    hmmm I wonder if that means that Hurts will be there as well.

    Going by GV's proclivity to book trendy acts for Coachella (that are featured on car commercials, cough*Phoenix*cough), I won't be surprised if Pomplamoose is there, you know because they're 'indie' an all...




    there will be 82,776 people there just to see the singer.

    Yes. The headliners were mainstream and diverse enough to where someone who would be interested in going to only night has to buy a weekend ticket, overall making Coachella more crowded. The weekend passes sold out just like a single day pass would .

    From my understanding of Pomplamoose, an actual live show would be pretty difficult to put on, don't the two of them play all the instruments?

    Crowded House are an Australian band, frontman Neil Finn is from NZ. NZ are always trying to claim Crowded House as their own. Probably because Australia tries to claim all of NZ's stars.

    All the 2010 "mainstream headliners" are easy to see in any part of the US. grillaz was a bit rare, but they don't a have a reputation as a killer act performance wise - they set no attendance records in arenas later that year in the US.

    Sasquatch also sold out surprisingly quick and they didn't strike me as having powerhouse headliners.

    It's good-will over several years building up where the fests themselves attract fans rather than artists. I booked my Coachella trip already, which was almost unfathomable to me flying in from Vancouver without knowing who's playing.

    Heathrow London yanked flights by Thursday. Fans would have likely flown out by then and spend a day in California getting used to the time change. UK media covering the event in person seemed to be there. Gorillaz and Fever Ray made it. Some of the lower billed acts for Sat/Sun got nailed and some could only bring a fraction of their band members/gear. I believe all acts got paid in full.

    Paul T was asked about 10,000 gatecrashers this year and dodged the question. he also mentioned how the band guestlists were greatly abused and had to be tightened. 75k tix, 10k associated with the fest and 10k gatecrashes gets you close to 95k very quickly.

    "The No. 1 thing was just too many bodies," Tollett adds. "That came from a few things. Number one, we sold more tickets than we have in the past." Specifically, Goldenvoice sold an additional 6,000 three-day tickets compared with the previous year, a jump in attendance compounded by a tidal wave of "sneak-ins, fence-cutting, counterfeit wristbands, counterfeit tickets," says Tollett. "We had a lame ticketing thing that we have to change, that actually made no sense."

    http://www.mydesert.com/article/2010...-we-waited-for

    He said heíd faced more adversity with this Coachella than any other. I asked him about reports that 10,000 counterfeit wristbands had been distributed, which must have contributed to the confusions and delays getting in, but he only said, ďYou know Iím not good with numbers.Ē
