    Default Official Bring Back The Insomniac Tent Petition

    So, I see there were 2 rave tents in 2001.

    We could use 2 rave tents. With an outdoor rave area between the 2 tents that you can rave in when you go from 1 rave tent to another (a la Pukkelpop). Maybe put the Do Lab in between the 2.

    Lease more land. Put another tent in. A rave tent. The Insomniac Tent.

    The Sahara tent that year was actually the Gobi and the Insomniac was the real Sahara.
    If I remember correct the Sahara was actually at the entrance of the festival. Kind of where the beer gardens are now.

    It was pretty bad ass walking in and hearing Andrea Parker right away.

    Seems like a good renaming for the campground tent.

    This is correct. I remember seeing Dieselboy/Dara/AK1200 on that stage. The Sahara was more of a DnB/Hip Hop/Misc. tent and the Insomiac Tent had Uberzone, Adam Freeland, Ian Pooley, Fatboy Slim, The Chemical Brothers, etc.

    Great idea, but how would this make business sense to either Paul T or Pasquale have to gain from doing this?

    Remember, half the reason they did that in 01 was to have more eggs in more baskets, so to speak, to ensure that Coachella would exist in the future.

    But yes, another rave tent would be awesome, let me make that clear Possibly, use one of the other polo fields, make a real, substantial increase to the size of the fest?

    The Sahara tent back then was super tiny. Smaller than the Gobi. That year it was all about the Mohave. Planet of the Drums into Ace One into Del into Plaid into the muthafuckin Squarepusha and ending the night with Sigor Ros and hopping over to Chemical Bros. The Insomniac tent was basically what we know now as the Sahara and it was bad ass. Fatboy Slim killed it and so did the Chem Bros. The night was still stolen by Squarepusher who fuckin murdered it and basically was the only opportunity anyone had of seeing him play his Go Plastic! set which he's retired since.

    This is how I remember it as well. I also thought Uberzone was sick as fuck that year.

    oh the memories...Squarepusher did fucking murder that night

    Unfortunately, I didn't catch much of Fatboy, due to staring in complete awe at Sigur Ros with my jaw dropped to the floor...but I promptly sprinted over to catch the Chems close out the night

    Why can't we bring back the Dome? We don't need a whole other tent.

    I caught 1/2 of Sigur Ros and 1/2 of Fatboy Slim. I remember thinking there was slight overlap to their sets.

    Oh hai look wat I found









    The quality is bad. But at least it's online. I only have an mp3 of his set. No video.

    Oh yeah. Fuck your shitty dubstep. THIS is bass music.

    I have the video of Squarpusher's complete set I believe. I will have to check.

    EDIT - Okay checked, the video file I have isn't the same one was the youtube links above...it's shorter (only like 22 mins) but is way better quality and a slightly different angle. Plus it has a dancing puppet at the beginning of the vid.
