    Your statement has to be one of the dumbest I've seen...and that's saying something.

    The good chunk of Skrillex's set i heard from the beer garden while waiting for Odd Future was some of the most annoying music I have ever heard in my life.

    You people have clearly been neglecting Spin magazine, Skrillex is the biggest thing to hit dance music since Fish Bulb Shoes

    To play devil's advocate, I see GV failing to keep 3 promises:

    -15,000 concert goers using the shuttle system to lessen trafficis in the current Indio contract that is publically available. GV sold their $50 shuttle pass quota, but thousands of them were "forced purchased" and likely never used. GV could do more to encourage attendees to leave their car at home.

    -Breaking noise curfews, sometims as much as 60 minutes. Macca, Cure,Jay-Z, Chems, Kanye....

    -early morning sound check "curfew". Not sure the current Indio/LQ but rules I woke at another festival at 8am to hear roadies soundcheck some Tom Petty songs when I was 10 miles form the venue.

    Keep in mind that noise can travel really far and there is full concert volume for nearly 50% of the days in April 2012. 9 show days plus tech days simply testing the PA or someone like Macca doing a 60 minute Thursday rehearsal.

    Odd Future was some of the most annoying music I'VE ever heard in my life. I'd rather sit through 2 hours of Skrillex than 10 minutes of Odd Future and I don't like Skrillex. Odd Future doesn't belong anywhere near the Sahara

    yeah, AFTER his set when thousands of people were leaving.. the 2nd most packed was Steve Angello, but i chalk that up to what was playing across from him.. those were the only two sets where the tent was full to all three sides

    missing the point. nobody is saying it was good. there was plenty worse, and if you disagree then you obv didn't catch all of the brostep acts, within that subgenre there were worse sets.. and yeah, that was the worst Odd Future show i've seen, but it was a million times better than Cee Lo

    You're wrong. I was there with Gribble, Becca and Frazzles and there is no way in hell Skrillex was the most packed all weekend. I walked by the Sahara when Duck Sauce was playing and there were a hell of a lot more people in there than there was for Skrillex.... same thing when I walked by while Afrojack was playing.


    I don't know where you were but I caught about the last 15 minutes of Skrillex from the back of the tent and there was a shitload of space all the way up to the sound board. It actually started filling up more as it got closer to Odd Future's set before they chased the crowd off with their terrible performance. But there is zero chance that a 3:30 set on Friday had the biggest Sahara crowd all weekend.
    fuck.

    Doubt this will be a problem. Most who rode, will ride again. Some of the routes sold out this year and I would expect more capacity allocated to those im 2012. And the reviews were so great, I would expect more to proactively choose a shuttle this year.

    Coachella Status Uncertain As Indio Delays Contract With Goldenvoice
    By Andrea Domanick Mon., Oct. 17 2011 at 7:00 AM





    Will Coachella 2012 keep you waiting?
    ​The city of Indio has postponed signing a contract with Coachella festival promoter and organizer Goldenvoice, following pressure from the neighboring city of La Quinta for an environmental review of the popular music and arts festival. The festival thus faces the possibility of delay from its April 13, 2012 start date.

    The Indio City Council voted for the postponement earlier this month, following La Quinta City Council's request for them to delay approval of the contract. La Quinta wants Indio and Goldenvoice to conduct an assessment under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) to evaluate the environmental impact of traffic, noise and pollution generated by the festival, owing to the fact that its length will be doubled this year, to two weekends in April. If Indio complies, the review process could extended well beyond Coachella's scheduled opening date.


    As Coachella has grown over the past dozen years, so has the affluent town of La Quinta, whose population of about 40,000 has nearly doubled in the last decade. The city now borders two sides of Indio's Empire Polo Field festival grounds and has become a popular place to stay for the 60,000 to 75,000 people who attend Coachella daily. Already wary of the wild partying from attendees with vacation rentals in the area, many residents of La Quinta were not pleased to learn that Coachella had extended its length, hence the demand for an Environmental Impact Review under CEQA, whose environmental protection policies apply to Coachella. CEQA is a self-governing statute, so while La Quinta can't actually force Indio to conduct the review, the former does have the right to seek its enforcement through private litigation if Indio doesn't address La Quinta's concerns to its satisfaction.

    According to the Desert Sun -- which covers Palm Springs and the Coachella Valley -- at an October 4 La Quinta City Council meeting, Coachella patrons were described by some locals as "the people who destroy our environment." Barbara Bishop, the president of a La Quinta homeowners association, claimed that 80 percent of the community's security incidents occur during Coachella and the popular Stagecoach Festival, usually held the following weekend at the Polo Field.

    Both La Quinta and Indio have complained about the festival in the past -- trespassing and "riding horses without permission" are among their grievances, KCET notes. The new contract, however, gives Indio less of a reason to complain -- and to want to conduct the lengthy review -- than its much wealthier neighbor: in addition to expanding Coachella to two weekends (April 13-15 and April 20-22) and adding an additional day to the Stagecoach Festival (April 27-29), the new contract would give Indio a portion of ticket sales earnings from both festivals. Indio City Manager Dan Martinez said at the Oct. 4 meeting that the new contract includes a series of penalties and fines to help reduce environmental disturbances, but La Quinta officials said that wasn't enough.
    La Quinta asked that the signing of the contract be postponed for 30 days to address the concerns of residents and the need for an Environmental Impact Review. If the review is deemed necessary, then the process - which includes a recommended 75 days of public comment on its findings - would likely extend well beyond Coachella's opening date in April.

    Indio officials were wary of engaging the review process. While admitting that neither they nor Goldenvoice can spare a month for review, they instead asked for two weeks to produce progress reports for La Quinta about how its concerns are being handled. Considering the Coachella Valley reaps $35 million from the festival each year, it's likely that some sort of compromise will be reached to get the festival started on-time.

    Still, we can't help but be reminded of Silver Lake's escalating clashes with Sunset Junction over the years. As Coachella continues to grow, it seems likely that heightening controversy is inevitable.

    You should probably post this in the thread where it's being discussed. This is the thread where we make fun of Baily and/or argue about Skrillex.

    They did NOT delay it 30 days, they gave LQ 2 weeks to get up to speed, and that was a gracious thing, they were ready to sign it through but were just being nice to their neighboring city council. Coachella fest is EXEMPT (along with many other events) from the CEQA.

    (watched the Indio city council meeting that all this took place so unless you did please don't just throw your uneducated opinion out)
