    Default I hope there is not a Stage Collapse @ Coachella like at other festivals

    Please don't let this happen either... It almost happened to Duran Duran, remember that.

    During Duran Duran's performance one of the monitors got all wonky and they had to lower it to fix it. It was almost scary.

    Yes, because lowering a screen to fix it totally qualifies as "stage near-collapse." It's been quite windy at Coachella before, so if it was EVER to happen, I would have happened by now. I can only imagine the laws in California regarding outdoor stages are pretty strict since there a lot of outdoor events, such as concerts, in which stage setups and the other nessessary rigging are needed, unlike Indiana, who unfortunately, does NOT have as good safety standards (no manditory safety inspections of free standing stages in Indiana). Anyone who works for stage crews in California, please feel free to chime in.

    Now, go sit down, have a churro, and relax.

    That's why I refuse to be up front in the pit for almost all bands. If im not willing to die to see the band im gonna be at a safe distance.

    I was on mushrooms at bonnaroo and I couldn't enjoy the set because I was waiting for the giant neon THAT TENT sign to fall on the crowd...sucked. I was 100% sure the minute I took my eyes off of it, it would crush fifty people and ruin everything.

    You're much more likely to be murdered by killer bees than die at a coachella stage collapse. I'm not picky though, as long as you die.
    Wow, 12 step meetings at Coachella, who knew? SOBERCHELLA.COM

    I'm a reasonable man, get off my case....

    here's a helpful tip... beware of 80 mph winds. If you find these winds non existent, proceed to enjoy your performance at any distance.

    please stop making threads. kthnks
    Coachella 07 (the introduction), 08 (the bands), 09 (the documentary), 10 (the people i came with), 11 (the relationship test... we passed), 12 (whatever the weather, Dirty Epic forever), 13 (the year of the troll)

    Yeah, because your posts are much more important. Get over yourself. Now its time for you or someone else to come back with a "witty" comment right? Something sarcastic like "Yes, because lowering a screen to fix it totally qualifies as "stage near-collapse.""

    Surely it is in the public interest to point out that you are dumb. You may not be aware of it. It is important to know your limitations.

    When you play Jenga do you compare it to 9/11?
