    I can't understand why some people give a shit about what kind of crowd goes to the festival. Unless its impeding my ability to hear or see the show, I couldn't give two fucks about who else is around me.

    Lol no matter what, all seem to agree that Sahara is just atrocious.
    Well, I am here to say it's not. It has good energy, fun crowd, and I don't judge anyone's taste in music (just mine) so I manage to have fun in there while I'm there.

    On another note, yes this thread's theme has been dead horse beaten.

    That's why it is better to have more Mexican and Latin bands... the more Mexicans in the crowd, the better the view.

    Or Peruvian bands because I've always found them to be on the short side so you are guaranteed a clear view from in front of the sound board (which is where you should be in the first place).

    Coachella is the best thing in the whole wide world.
    I've been to every one since St. Germain and I don't even care who they book next year because Paul ALWAYS surprises.

    See you at LiB?

    Not really. Go over to the Bonnaroo board sometime and listen to people bemoaning the death of Bonnaroo because there are too many indie/hip-hop/mainstream/whatever acts. There is a decent sized contingent who are legitimately upset that Bonnaroo is no longer solely the province of dreadlocked white guys and girls who look pregnant but aren't, and dislike that they aren't all just grooving out to String Cheese Incident.

    I think you're confused. 2011 was the first year of the expanded festival grounds. 2010 was the year where 30,000 people snuck in according to Paul Tollett.

    I thought Nick o was the guy who works for the promoter that put on the High Contrast show in SF, and was talking down to everyone and calling them elitists or something for saying that the show wasn't put together very well. Then we torched him in the EDC thread, and haven't heard from him since.

    Haha! Yeah... that was him. I linked that High Contrast thread to someone who helps run that production company. I wonder if Nick O still hands out fliers for them.

    Having gone from 04-12 and camping every year, I have seen many different phases of Coachella. We, the folks who grew up in the 90s were spoiled rotten with the most amazing musicians who survived past the mediocrity that dominated the air waves such as All 4 One and Smash Mouth. GV gave us acts that were amazing. The crowd was filled with fellow music fanatics who wanted to hear the next great bootleg everyone would be listening to for the next few years, and the bands delivered these amazing sets also (Pixies/Radiohead04/DP06etc).

    Everyone told their friends and their mamas to come after each year, unfortunately this brought some of the wrong crowd to fields. Folks who appreciate a catchy single, but immediately leave after that single is played. This pattern increased more and more over the last 4 years, now we have folks who go to Coachella to "find dat pussy" and yell stupid shit during sets, stand and occupy a dance space, stepping within an inch from your face and posting up for a show, but never dancing, just getting in the fucking way. This past year, walking around with my younger sister, I couldn't have imagined the number of rapey creeps the women have the deal with before. On Saturday, some douche was just talking mad shit to every person just to get a reaction. When he did get one, he became a defensive twerp, hoping his friends will back him up? After he knowingly has provoked a few individuals for no reason? Does anyone really like people who act like that?

    Basically: There is no fucking consideration for your fellow human beings. Over half of the conversations initiated by strangers are this: "Do you have any drugs for sale?"

    My experience for another gathering from this past weekend completely blew my last 3 years of Coachella out of the water. I've also grown a little bit out of the "need to be up front to rage" mindset. Instead, I love meeting the people at the shows and making new connections, sharing some magic with these folks, not trying to size their wallet up and how much one could profit. A friendship is worth far more than $10-$15 profit and a potential felony. Plus most of them know how to handle their entheogens and are still able to interact with people around them compared to the drug noobs at Chella...

    If a friend in the biz gets me a free ticket or Daft Punk is playing their first new show, I'll go. I could have probably gotten a weekend 2 ticket if I wasn't so stubborn for weekend 1 and trying to buy my ticket while in transit to an amazing gathering last Thursday morning.

    Coachella has changed for sure, but you can't expect a festival to produce something better than the year before every single year. There has to be a downfall, and maybe that is what it will take for Coachella to regain its steam again. Best case scenario for all of us: Mainstream music gets better, because that is what Coachella is really reaching for right now.

    I went to coachella once and would never go back. Nothing remarkable or special about the place, those of you that disagree need to open your eyes and travel.
    "How long will this last, this delicious feeling of being alive, of having penetrated the veil which hides beauty and the wonders of celestial vistas? It doesn't matter, as there can be nothing but gratitude for even a glimpse of what exists for those who can become open to it."
