Thread: List of Boardmembers DEFINITELY returning next year when overcrowding isnt addressed

  1. #1

    Default List of Boardmembers DEFINITELY returning next year when overcrowding isnt 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 be spending our hard-earned cash to travel to Coachella next year even if GV does not make 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.

    Eh, I'll sign. Even with the douchery involved with this year, I can't see myself sitting at home while Coachella is going on

    It really doesn't matter what they charge or how many sardines they pack us in with, I am buying passes on the first day they make them available, and come that weekend in spring, I will be there enjoying whatever magic is still left in coachella. Money is temporary, hardship is quickly forgotten, memories last until alzheimers!

    ^ agreed... it's practically in my backyard too... i request the days off as soon as they are announced... i buy the tickets as soon as they go on sale... i'm definitely going in 2011 and i'm sure they are going to improve upon the problems

    This was me and my friends first year and we all pretty much agree that we're coming back no matter who's on the lineup.

    I've been to every Coachella, but after this year, I'm gonna have to see the lineup...as much as I hate to say it, there will one day be a lineup that fits more in line with the contemporary, more mainstream Coachella crowd, and that may be the day it becomes a memory for me.

    But the chances are good I'm still going to be going for the foreseeable future.

    fixed. Outside of Fever Ray and Gorillaz I could've seen pretty much everything I really wanted to see here. without the shitty audience and overcrowded aspects.

    *sigh*

    I don't know yet. Even making a wishlist for 2011 seems weird now.

    this. I don't mind a more contemporary line up as long as we have goodies for the rest of us. But, that same contemporary line up also brought a lot of idiots with it. The overselling didn't help either. I am really at a loss for words. I will plan on attending next year AS long as the issues this year are addressed and the line up is great.

    It's funny, I was trying to find another festival to go to but none, (maybe Roskilde?) holds a candle to Coachella's line up this year, international or domestic.


    But the title to this thread needs to be fixed.

    It definitely was crowded but it did not take away from my enjoyment of the festival. Then again I have more patience than a lot of you. I will be there next year!

    We will be back, but if things are not adjusted it may be our last year. SO . . . GV please do what needs to be done, so the dingo won't eat my baby.

    I was crushed when the 2008 line up came out, but I had faith so I planned my trip anyway. And now 2008 is my favorite Coachella. In other words, I'll be back.

    There are so many whiners about this "overcrowding issue". I definitely did not notice anything in the way of overcrowding except for the campground showers (figure that shit out guys, it did not use to take me 3 hours to shower when i got up at 6), and the usual gobi cramp.

    It'd be nice if they scaled the ticket sales back, but whatever. I go every year, it's not going to change. I still had a lot of fun.
