    Default List of Boardmembers NOT returning next year unless overcrowding is addressed

    Since we already have a Clusterfuckchella complaints thread, here is where we should make our stand.

    Coachella used to be a magical experience for the hard-core music fan. This year, we were marginalized and sometimes literally trampled over by 75,000 Casual Music Fans. Not cool, Paul. Not cool.

    We, the below listed, will not be spending our hard-earned cash to travel to Coachella next year unless GV makes a concerted effort to address the overcrowding issues, and issues a statement to that effect.

    Please sign below, and keep your flaming in a separate thread if that is what you feel like doing.

    I, BlackSwan, will not be spending my hard-earned cash to travel down to Coachella next year unless GV makes a concerted effort to address the overcrowding issues, and issues a statement to that effect.... and books Bowie.

    Its funny how up until the festival all you guys were on the nuts of the 3 day tickets only rule because it would filter out all the "Casual Music Fans"

    75k was just too much though. They need to cap at 65K tops
    G-funk acquired, thank you Coachella

    I think 3 day was a great idea. If you're gonna go to Coachella, GO TO COACHELLA. Experience it in full, single day is a cop out.

    it was overcrowded and poorly run.. hopefully they address the issues or else im gonna look elsewhere as well.. i used to love coachella, but after this year im seriously considering trying a different festival and put my money there. i never thought i would say that about coachella but it just got fucking ridiculous this year...

    This really doesn't do anything. Show them you are serious by just not going and giving them money.

    a lot of me is starting to think that someone (an artist of epic proportion) has given COACHELLA a bit of a deadline.... im starting to think this year was just all about making a ton of extra money to pay someone really really big in the next year or two.

    Think about it.... extra number of tickets sold, only three day passes, lack of major $$$$ artists this year, lack of major art, total lack of security, extra money for the water bottles, less staff, and i know they saved money on that bullshit shower situation....

    so yeah, i would never say "Im not going to COACHELLA" id go regardless, but please GV, this fest means a lot to us and the over crowding this year was horrific! Lets hope this was just a year to produce some extra funds and everything will go back to normal next year.

    09 by far has seemed to be the most comfortable year so far for me....
    Coachella 07 (the introduction), 08 (the bands), 09 (the documentary), 10 (the people i came with), 11 (the relationship test... we passed), 12 (whatever the weather, Dirty Epic forever), 13 (the year of the troll)

    If I don't go somebody else will and it will still sell out. This won't accomplish anything.

    good ol' american complacency. They DO read this board ("Welcome Juggalos", booking Grace Jones etc). It doesn't fucking cost anything to make your voice heard.

    agreed. Fucking pussies. And I had these annoying little bitches at Gorillaz that we're like "Hey you're not pregnant!?" To which I replied " I know, I have a dick. Does my beer belly count" and then continued to cry about me moving forward while they were sitting. When I said thank you to a gal for moving her leg a little bit they yelled "HEY DONT DO THAT FUCKER" I got right in his face and said "Do what fucker. do what? What exactly did I just do?" Blah blah blah serious pussies. Only negative experience of the whole weekend. Everything else was awesome.

    Are you people seriously still crying about this??? I think black swan is obviously kidding, Bowie will never make it to this fest. But everyone else, just saddle up for the ride. I had the time of my life and didn't let the overcrowds bother me one bit. Guess how they got such a killer lineup? By increasing ticket sales.

    Please put a tampon in. Stat.

    if you're not gonna go next year, then don't fucking go. not one person cares that your whiny bitch ass isn't going. waaaaaahhhh there were too many people!! wahhhhhhh i couldn't take a shower!!! waaaaahhhhhi couldn't get into the mojave to see yeasayer!!!! pay attention when you're walking, don't shower all weekend, and get to your stages ten minutes early. it's called adapting, you fucking vaginas, learn how to do it and you won't soak your pillow in tears anymore. enough with this bullshit. shut the fuck up.

    It'll take more than 1 year of fuckups (however major they may have been) to make me throw in the towel.

    I hope this isn't the only festival/forum your saying that about...

    Seriously though, if you guy's don't want to go there are plenty of people who still will. There are issues at every party/festival/get-together/family-reunion - if it's not the experience you were expecting and this forum makes you that upset then somebody's inner five-year-old won.

    Drew not out...

    Three tribes meet at the top of an ancient, mystical hill to discuss this year's event.

    The CoachellaBoardRegulars tribe, the ThisWasTheWorstCoachellaEver tribe, and the quietest, but most popular tribe, the ILoveCoachella Juggalos.

    At sundown, a genie appears at the peak of the hill and says:

    "Hear ye, hear ye, almighty revelers. I have heard your thundering voices and I am here to grant each one of the tribes one wish."

    The CoachellaBoardRegulars tribe wished that a festival be created where they could openly flame every attendee, where the you-gonna-get-raped man roamed amongst them, and where everyone could punch Josesativa in the face as they walked in. So their wish was granted, and looking at the marvel they had created, vowed never to return to Coachella.

    The ThisWasTheWorstCoachellaEver tribe wished that a festival be created where only 10,000 people were allowed, where single days tickets were available, and where there existed a space/time supernova of fast-moving lines, yet thoroughly searched patrons lacking douche-inducing drugs, fedoras, feathers, or Ed Hardy attire which had so painfully ruined their festival experience this year. So their wish was granted, and looking at the marvel they had created, vowed never to return to Coachella.

    So then, the genie turned to the ILoveCoachella Juggalos and asked,

    "Oh, faithful festival tribe, please voice me your wish."

    And as the ILoveCoachella Juggalos looked around in disbelief, their leader said,

    "You mean to tell me that the CoachellaBoardRegulars tribe and the ThisWasTheWorstCoachellaEver tribe have their own festival now? And that they're never coming back to Coachella?"

    And the genie nodded in agreement.

    So the last tribe said,

    "Can we just have Freshers Lemonade back next year?"

    75k was just too much though. They need to cap at 65K tops
    Imagine how worse things would have been had there been 75K capacity AND single-day tickets.

    Those who blame this year's logistical problems on 3-day tickets are fucking idiots.
