Thread: Two separate Coachella weekends?

  1. #91

    Default Re: Two separate Coachella weekends?

    Coachella cares about making $. That's all there is to it. If they feel they can make more $ by having two festivals they will.

    I remember when the new Yankee Stadium was announced. The "real fans" felt like we were losing tradition and history. Management didn't care, they knew they could make more money. So the fans had to accept it, the new stadium was happening. After the initial shock, we realized the Yankees did a great job with the new stadium. So good that people don't miss the old stadium anymore. They also won the World Series the first year in it, which helps. Maybe if GV gets Radiohead and Daft Punk (the musical equivalent of winning the WS) we will stop complaining.

    However,

    I also remember when George Lucas first decided to make 3 prequels to Star Wars. The "real fans" were against it because Star Wars was perfect and they didn't want "more". Lucas didn't care, he knew he could make billions. The films were horrible but still made money. Now he made an animated movie and show, is making a live action show, and is considering making episodes 7, 8 and 9. So in this case, Star Wars became tainted and will only become more tainted in the future. If making artists play for two weekends forces GV to get Lolla '10 type of headliners (the musical equivalent of sitting through Star Wars Ep 1), it could be the end of what makes this festival special.


    Here's hoping it turns out more like Yankee Stadium and less like Star Wars 1.

    so far just about everything ive read and everyone ive talked to is saying there going to the first weekend, i wonder if the first will be vastly more crowded.

    side note:

    Ive heard that at stage coach is really dusty cause coachella kills a lot of the grass, especially in the camp sites, anyone know if this is pretty true?

    cause thats enough to get me to lean towards the first
    Stevie Wonder, Jurassic 5!!, Magnetic Man, Pogo, Tycho, Tears for Fears 2013

    I read somewhere that in 02 Coachella added a second day and in 07 they added a third day. Now in 2012 they add a second weekend.
    Every 5 years they've expanded. Kinda interesting.

    Actually started with 2 days in 99, no show in 00, then only 1 day in 01, then back to 2 in 02.

    My bad. But I'm thinking Coachella will have their eyes on ticket sales for weekend 2 more closely than 1.

    If Coachella 1 sells out quickly, Coachella 2 will sell out too. Doesn't really matter if 1 is more popular because there was enough demand this year to sell two fests.

    Okay, but you and guedita were clearly mocking the idea from the standpoint that it would never happen. That's why the quotes are funny.

    Disagree, #1 will have noticably more demand.

    In 1979 Led Zeppelin played Knebworth on consecutive Saturdays in August with decent support bill. Except for a pair of low profile warm up shows it was the only gigs they did that year. #1 sold out quickly and #2 did little more than half with the promoter taking a bath.

    Perversely, the #2 LZ performance was quite a bit better than #1.

    i'd really like to just multi-quote this entire thread and then tell you all to die of cocks, but i'm better than that.

    this wasn't my idea, i knew it was happening and made the first post so incredibly vague just to watch this thread spiral out of control into some bonafide comedy (as it did, because this board is incapable of real discussions/civil interactions, mainly because you're all just dying to think you're so much cooler than the person who commented before you) + making a fool out of guedita is fun.

    i'm reading through this for the first time actually and this thread could only have helped this not to happen. all the negativity and hate could have scared GV off the idea if anything. but then again, when the line-up comes out they know all you are gonna come crawling back, saying sorry, trying to sell your stupid little lollapalooza tickets, begging for just a one-day pass to one of their two sold-out weekends of shows, and they will rightly laugh in your sad little faces.

    this is pretty cool though, i feel pretty incapable of being flamed on here for life. especially with my new sig. thanks MJA.

    How long have those close to GV known this was happening?

    While it took me by surprise, I did remember hearing after Big 4/Stagecoach they had seriously considered using the grounds 3 week in a row, but I simply assumed it would be jam or metal or latin or pop themed 1-2 day festival.

    here's how it happened...Paul Tollet and gang were sitting around after Coachella doing blow and counting all their cash when someone said "man, imagine if we did this on two weekend...we could have like....double this!" and then all of a sudden a big fat green light bulb went off.
    Cooler than a polar bears toenails.

    We were mocking it for being a bad idea. It's still a bad idea.

    Ha. Apparently.


    I think this is analogous to mmblack knowing that Justin Bieber is headlining. And then he posts: "Hey guys, what do you think about Justin Bieber headlining?" And then I go "That would fucking suck you piece of shit you fucking idiot." And then the lineup comes out and mmblack goes "Well, now I guess you are wrong because now it is awesome that Justin Bieber is headlining solely as a function of it happening."
