    Question BoomCase. - Can I get it in?

    So, my blog and I were selected to receive one of these to rock with at Coachella this year. The link for the competition is here: http://blog.theboomcase.com/2011/04/...est-coachella/





    MY QUESTION:

    Are these allowed inside the festival?

    Leave your boombox at home, please, no one wants to hear your playlists between sets.

    So is there any official rule stating that you cannot bring this type of thing?

    There is a rule called "No Instruments", and the nature of that rule is so that the only noise on the polo fields is from the acts that people pay to see.

    looks cool, but if it is brought into the festival grounds I hope it ends up in the Port-O

    at the campsite...cool...

    but seriously no one wants to hear your shit music while they are eating lunch....notice how GV didn't call you and ask, "Hey do you want to be a DJ?" No ...there's a reason for that.

    If you are kicking it at your site cool, but if it's on the festival grounds...LAME
    Just when I think you couldn't possibly be any dumber, you go and do something like this…and totally redeem yourself!

    it would also feel pretty good to put a foot through the speakers if it's seen inside the festival grounds.

    Why is my music immediately shit because I want to play it from a vintage suitcase?

    You don't like Gorillaz?
    You don't like LCD Soundsystem?
    You don't like Daft Punk?
    You don't like Beastie Boys?
    You don't like Foo Fighters?
    You don't like Pink Floyd?

    It's not about the vintage suitcase (btw...it's been done!) It's the fact that we're going to be at a MUSIC FESTIVAL...key word...music. Save it for your tent. If people want to listen to those acts, well that is what iPods are for. I hate when ppl think that everyone in the general vicinity wants to hear the bs that they play out loud anywhere near the fields. Fuck.

    Why would that feel good? Since when is Coachella about being a dick?

    I'm not planning on annoying anyone with it. I'm not going to be running around pissing people off. Quite the opposite.

    If the majority of the people in my vicinity don't like it I will turn it off or leave.

    Umm... I didn't make the BoomCase. I was just cool enough to receive one for FREE.

    Also, I am not planning to use it as an alternative to the music acts. Simply as a supplement when there isn't music around. I have been to Coachella many times and there are plenty of areas without music.

    I mean, I get that this (and all) message boards are about making people feel good about themselves by semi-anonymously talking shit to other people. I do it too when there is good reason... but I'm not planning to bring it to annoy people.

    I guarantee the majority of people that run into me with this BoomCase will think it is cool and will probably want to dance party with it.

    I'm not going to be blasting it at the Main Stage... unless I'm waiting for the act to come on.

    Yeah get off his case! I'm going to bring my ipod earbuds for walking betw tents and then my ipod speaker dock for in between sets!

    The point is, it is shit to think it's a good idea to bring something to play music at a place where you can't hardly get away from hearing music. Music that is live and/or on the best sound-systems in the world. You are really going to stand around your boombox all day?

    But that's all beside the point. Good luck getting this into the actual venue. Campsites maybe, but no giant suitcase with speakers on it will make it onto the fields, no matter how cool.
