    Default What % of the audience do people like us make up

    THIS DOES NOT MEAN THEY HAVE TO POST HERE OBVIOUSLY, BUT RATHER ANYONE THAT LIKES SIMILAR CREATIVE MUSIC LIKE THE CONTRIBUTORS HERE

    I know we all disagree in many ways, but I think there's still an inherent respect for one another's musical tastes compared to the average fratboy attending Coachella. I've often wondered what percentage of the Coachella audience are musical enthusiasts like ourselves.

    You should have asked how many people are casual fans of uncreative music.

    Maybe I'm just an optimist...I'd like to think that 20-30% of the audience like creative music...

    ...good point. Seems like a very subjective word to use.

    I think the answer on this result would be very different 10 years ago compared to today. Everyone and their mom goes to Coachella now. Honestly, I can say I don't go to Coachella for the music so much anymore. I used to, but I think the line-up has got so bad recently, that's it's all about the experience. Golden Voice is top notch and Coachella just looks amazing in the day and at night. I'm just really impressed by the set-up, art and atmosphere.
