    as cheesy as this sounds, coachella would lose what makes it special if they did it multiple times a year. part of what i love is the anticipation to that one weekend in april.

    Thanks for explaining to mmblack so kindly why his "idea," is so absolutely reprehensible to anyone with one-fourth of a semi-functioning brain, Nathan.

    Nope, you tell us why. That's how it works. The burden is on you to explain why the deviation from the status quo is necessary.

    How in the world would that even work? Think about the booking of bands. Either one weekend would be really stacked, or everything would be spread out thinly. Also, having two weekends would just cheapen the special feel of that one weekend.

    Perhaps Coachella should follow the lead of the innovative Identity Festival and start touring across cities throughout the states.

    There should also be two NFL seasons and two Super Bowls. Annual events lack the ambition that Americans crave.

    Coachella should really take a lesson from the HARD playbook.

    They should announce the Coachella lineup. Then, later, announce that it is now on two separate weekends. Wait to see people's reactions and then split the lineup so that as many people as possible are forced to go to both weekends to see the acts they want. Then, without telling anyone, secretly have all the acts playing the first weekend show up to the play the second.

    2nd coachella weekend should occur weekend after stagecoach, to maximize stupidity and/or bbq crossover.

    He might be onto something. Instead of it being Coachella, which seems to be too close to peoples heart to change, we have another GV festival at the polo fields in the fall. Coachella in the spring, 'random festival name' in the fall.

    Actually this is probably a better idea than adding more days or stages to Coachella.

    goldenvoice should just throw another festival in the late summer/early fall in northern new jersey. i believe there's some park there that has a backdrop of the NYC skyline that would be pretty cool. they could call it "this has been done before and it didn't work guys".

    Yes, this is better than your idea, and this idea is still a complete piece of shit.

    yeah, they probably wouldn't do so well if they say booked the beastie boys and they got sick and just brought out jay-z instead.
