    Or the opposite....

    One act has an amazing set the first weekend and the 2nd weekend it has technical issues (a la Black Keys)

    No, they're probably wondering why they didn't think of it and pull it off first.

    People, how could there possibly be any more grass smoked at Coachella? Like the lack of previous fests not being on April 20 actually limited the pot consumption?

    There will always be those problems when you have 12+ bands transitioning on and off one stage in a single day. It has nothing to do with weekend one versus weekend two. You act like they don't do sound checks or run/test any of the equipment until the bands start going on.

    I think you just have to weigh with the fact that you're seeing new sets/stage setups revealed first. Imagine if Daft Punk revealed their new stage setup at Coachella weekend 1, don't you think a bit of that magic would be gone if the surprise was spoiled for you? I suppose you could completely disconnect from the internet for that week...

    You still bring up a good point, but part of what I liked about past Coachellas is that you just sort of rolled with it no matter what, technical issues and all.

    People take things too seriously on this board. Just pick a fucking weekend, and go. Flip a coin if you fancy.

    and yet this past year was full of delayed/shortened sets. i'm not pissed off about it, coache11a was the best yet, but you can't say its not a possibility that weekend 2 will have some kinks worked out from weekend 1.

    Yes, I am upset that I will miss certain acts that don't span both weekends for whatever reason, but I always miss certain acts and I don't wallow in it. Can't see 'em all, that's just the way it is. At 'chella 11, GV listened to a LOT of our complaints from the year before and made everything nearly flawless. Maybe this change will work better than we are all expecting. This is their business, they don't want to fuck it up and alienate all of us. I'm sure they are confident in their ability to book near-identical line-ups, but I'm not in the industry (nor are most of you) and I'm not sure how it all works out.

    Lastly, fuck all the magic talk, it will still be a blast regardless; however, I agree with the people who are going for weekend one. I'm not going to fight myself all week to avoid watching/reading/hearing about firstchella, and I'm sure as hell not taking sloppy seconds on the polo fields.
    umm kind of hard to plan 11 months in advance with friends in school and work

    my only concern is the level of pre-sales will dictate the quality of headliners. What if the pre-sales go worse than expected, and they start booking more conservatively in response... O course, if it goes really well. Radiohead! Seeing them on back to back nights on the 2006 tour at the same venues was amazing. back to back weekends would also be AOK

    Reading/Leeds are two festivals held on the same weekend that rotate lineups each day. It's also important to note that they're supposedly really, really shitty festivals.

    Hater. Party of 1.

    I have come to the conclusion that some of you people will defend Coachella no matter what and simply being constructive or critical is impossible for you.

    Can Coachella ever be wrong for you?

    I'm more disheartened by the fact that tickets are going on sale this friday instead of January when I'd have money saved up for it. I wasn't planning on going this year, but I figured I'd at least have the chance to see if I could budget for it.

    Oh well, at least I got to go to the last undisputed Coachella.
    Upcoming Shows:
    * Dillon Francis + Anamanaguchi -- December 28th

    Going to Weekend 1 of Coachella 2014

    I think the first sentence you quoted covered that.

    Oh. That's completely different. So are we the first multi-day festival in the world to do this?
