    Default No Fireworks this year?

    At least one main stage act has had fireworks at least the last 3-4 years (Sir Paul, Muse, and Kanye are three I remember specifically), but no performer had fireworks this year. Obviously, it wouldn't have fit for the Keys or Radiohead, but you'd think SHM or Dre/Snoop would have them.

    Anyone know why not? Was this a sop to the Indio/Coachella locals - no more fireworks after a certain hour?

    Yeah, how'd you miss that? I wasn't even at that stage, but it's hard to miss that many lasers and fireworks. Looked like a spectacle, almost wish I was there, though I despise the SHM, if only because they are generic and WAY overhyped. Their music is mediocre, everone just likes there stage shows and I guess that is ok with some.

    There were fireworks in my pants after that Refused show. I'd really rather not talk about it.

    I left early during SHM. Guess that might be the reason.

    I saw fireworks from in the shuttle, I'm not a fan of SHM or any electronic music but the show they put on was pretty impressive.
