    Bestival does a similar thing with beer cups. If you collect something like 30 cups you get a free beer. Keeps the grounds amazingly clean.

    I liked the strings of balloons, especially when illuminated at night. I had never seen that done before and they were fun to try to incorporate into photos. I was confused over how they seemed to move around until I saw how it was done. Deceptively simple but major visual impact.

    definately some sort of reward for bottles, combined with PSA's or afterschool rock thing about keeping the festival grounds clean

    I remember that...2007, right?

    One of my favorite things at Glastonbury is The Rabbit Hole. Main area is an Alice in Wonderland themed tent, then you gotta crawl through a very small tunnel to get to a fairly large dance tent with DJs and a "Disco 2000" floor, and more tunnels that lead to other things, such as an all-night cinema.

    Seconded on the Sambazon vendor. I don't think I've seen those since 2009, and that was in VIP. Didn't attend last year but I recall looking for one in 2010, and not getting any. Those 2 for $5 smoothies really hit the spot. Was the vendor of the amazing brisket subs from 06-08 around last year? The Brazilian BBQ from 07-08 was really good, too.

    Does anyone remember the year that there were four domes and each was a different season? The winter one was air conditioned and had couches? I think it was 05 or 06? I loved the fall one with the tree made out of rakes... If anyone has a picture it would make my day.

    Awesome stuff in here guys. I wish Coachella would spend more money and time on bringing back cool shit like we've posted. Seems like less and less stuff like this pops up in the fields. I wonder where the trade off is? More money for production? performers?

    Coachella has filmed enough performances over the years for a box set of DVDs. Please also provide another viewing at the Orpheum.

    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    They need more performances available on blu ray (Portishead!!!!)

    And I may have mentioned it before; turkey legs. We need that Viking vibe I'm full force! I don't know if they ever had turkey legs but they would win if they started having them

    They have sooooooooooo much footage of unforgettable performances and what are they doing with them??
    There should really be a sequel already, the other festivals are already on top this, ie. EDC - The Electron Daisy Carnival Experience and Ultra- CAN U FEEL IT.....we're owed new film by now...

    This is what I miss too! I feel like the art installations used to be so much more interactive. Remember the gnome tent, where you would wave your hand in front of the little gnomes and they would talk? Or the sound pole installation where you walked by and the sound would react to how everyone was moving? I remember after Prince played someone got a line going and we were swirling through that installation with our eyes closed....too much fun. By the way, thanks for posting those pics! Good memories.... and yes the Acai bowls! I think I ate about two a day.
