    Default Things Coachella should bring back

    list things you liked in previous years that have inexplicably disappeared like favorite foods, art installations, attractions, etc. I liked the tunnel with xmas lights. you put on 3D glasses and walked thru what seemed to be a rainbow tunnel all while bumping into strangers. Also the round maze like thing that took you in circles and got shorter until you popped out in the middle where you would find people hanging out. I had fun scaring the shit out of people while walking thru this installation.

    3-D glasses in front of this thing made it look like light was splashing out at you! SO COOL! Bring it back!

    This! I dont know if it was like this for you, but when i finally made it too the middle it was awesome too see a pipe vendor lay like 50 glass pipes out on the ground and be sellin em. Everyone was blazing fat inside.


    As far as the other thing u listed, they call that "the rabbit hole". I was on the build crew for it (but not at Coachella). You shouldnt be too upset its not at Coach because its been set up at pretty every major EDM event on the westcoast for like the past 2 years
    G-funk acquired, thank you Coachella

    ^ I do remember people smoking like crazy in there because security wasn't going thru it. So it's called the rabbit hole. Now that you mention it I recall seeing the rabbit hole at EDC or something like that a couple of years ago. Last time I saw it. I don't go to parties much these days so I didn't know it was still around. It makes me happy to know this!

    The comedians in the gobi tent were cool but just have them EARLY in the day so they don't conflict with any good music...

    OK, I just wanted to mention those Acai bowls too. They were my favorite food item that I craved every year, and then they didn't have them last year!! I know it sounds dumb, but I kind of had a sulking, pouty baby moment when I found out they WEREN'T THERE.

    I thought they were too. Lit up green, red, and yellow if I remember correctly.

    I never had the Acai bowl. Guess I missed some good eats.

    I meant what they had last year with the synchronized light up palm trees. I don't want that to go away like the spot lights.
