    I have no interest in something like this, but I can't imagine it was cheap to book some of those bands.

    "IHEART Radio" is certainly appropriate, as there are a lot of mainstream, popular acts that are, you know, regularly played on FM radio. The cost of booking all of these acts had to have been astronomical.

    It's short sets with minimal production. Plus the acts are essential trading their time for airplay to a certain extent and take a huge cut on their normal fee.

    289.65 a day per ticket.

    Is it just me or is that insane pricing?

    So that means both days for 2 people is 1158.60.

    And that's without hotel, food or transportation.

    There are plenty of people who would pay that! They would look at it as 'wow, this perfect, we get to see all these great bands play that we listen to all the time on the radio'.
    They won't care its 20-30 minute sets, that will be ideal for them. They get the songs they hear on the radio. Then you have the die-hard fans of each artist, who will just have to be there.

    I mean, in Vegas we get the Billboard Awards, Country Music Awards etc and folks happily pay $250 for a rear arena seat for a live TV awards show. The week before in the same venue, there is a fight where every lower/floor seat is $1250 each. The cheapest seat available is $600.

    This sounds like it's going to be a marathon torture test where afterwards people will talk about it fondly because they will have deluded themselves into believing they loved every minute (because they spent around $600 for 2 days of 20 to 30 minute sets and 1 song guest spots by high profile artists) and now somehow are part of some elite music society who got to attend.

    Someone should just dose the entire festival with a crop duster, it could perhaps shift music trends in a good way.

    The cheap seats have a very limited view-which could be a bonus, now if they could just restrict the sound too!

    Looking at this lineup is causing me intense physical pain.

    And I didn't think any festival would beat Epicenter this year for awfulness. I just hope Coldplay isn't at Coachella even more now.

    That special performance by Sting and Usher is probably Usher doing a spoken word about how awesome he is for discovering Justin Bieber while Sting plays the lute.

    Is it really a festival if it doesn't have The Black Keys, Cut Copy, or The Flaming Lips?

    This seems like less of a festival and more like a celebration of the people on stage.

    Well both days sold out! So that means there are plenty of people who can pay 'insane' pricing! They are the type of people who would go to Coachella if they could sit down on a proper assigned seat and eat a slice of pizza with a knife and fork.
