    Default What Will This Year's Crowd Be Like?

    Last year there seemed to be a ton of people who would not normally be at coachella. I ran into way too many bros who were there just to party and hear mgmt play kids. There seem to be less big-name radio acts on this year's lineup when compared to last year's. The undercard this year is just superb.

    I really do believe its going to be just as clusterfuck as last year with the same crowd. Just look at those headliners.

    I went to Buy Tickets earlier and it said that you will NOT be allowed within a square mile of festival/campgrounds/parking lots if you are not wearing or don't have your wristband on you. I checked again and that info was taken down. That may help with the overcrowding/clusterfuck that was last year.

    If it wasn't for Coachella '07, I wouldn't even know who the fuck KoL are. Are they really that big of a draw? They seem like a budget saving measure to me.

    The crowd KOL and Kanye will bring scares me. Arcade Fire doesn't draw a douchey crowd though. I think last year's problems were also made worse by acts like mgmt, phoenix, vampire weekend, etc. who were all getting a TON of radio play. There seems to be less of those this year.

    It's not about crowd quality anymore. It's about crowd QUANTITY. I'm gonna knock out any bitch walking around without a wristband.

    Coachella = MAJOR PRODUCTION + people planning their lives around that weekend

    Hop a fence or make a fake wristband and you WILL get punched in the ovaries.

    I'm sure most boardies share the same sentiment.

    FOUR TET. HOT CHIP. SIMIAN MOBILE DISCO. BOOKA SHADE. LEE SCRATCH PERRY. BEACH HOUSE.

    Richie Hawtin. James Blake. Loco Dice.

    It just kind of doesn't compute with me, I guess. I honestly never hear people talk about them. Like, never. Maybe I'm hearing their songs without even knowing.

    It's going to be a younger crowd, as the acts are generally younger. The acts seem a little more ethnically diverse, so hopefully we will see more than just white kids. Since I'm taking the shuttle, let the traffic jam begin!

    I'd rather have hipsters judging me on how I look and dance than bros who are wasted and talking during an act they only want to hear one song from

    I was surprised to see how many frat boys and bros were at last year's. :'(

    I'm sure it'll be worse this year. Anyway, I'm attending no matter what!

    I would agree that the crowd might be a little lighter, given that there are less mainstream /radio indie bands this year. However, I think after last year's festival, indie music became so huge that there won't be a huge decrease in attendance.

    KOL practically has sex with kroq. black keys are always on too, though they're worthy of the airwaves.

    I hated the idiots who jumped the fences last year. Gate crashing is so 1974. As for this year, I want less bros (Abercrombie and Fitch), less emos (Hot Topic) and more hot indie hipsters (Ubran Outfitters/American Apparel).

    Its like the Infinite Monkey Theorem, if you put X amount of monkeys in a room with a typewriter and ask them to give you Shakespeare 99% of them will fling their shit at you while the other 1% will masturbate in the corner.

    You'd be surprised. But probably not as douchy as the other 2.
