    The more I think about it, the more I love the idea of moving it to a custom built space. Think of the possibilities.

    I just learned English and if I'm not mistaken, Skip Paige comes off as the asshole here.

    2013 scalper sales will be fucking rediculous if they take advantage of the "Last Indio Coachella Ever and Last Coachella Before a Year Break" thing...

    There's a full text message exchange you flustered cunt. I can judge for myself, and Skip Paige reads like an angry LMFAO jam.

    "Hey let me show you this transcribed text message session from my friends cell phone...who is the guy who wants way too much from the Promoter"

    I usually expect you to be a bit sharper Pot, that summer heat is getting to your brain isnt it? Yes, Torres is completely a cool dude, he just wanted to be invited to more meetings, now they say "Go away!". Man GV is a bunch of jerks

    I'm just confused by the fact that a business exhange is taking place by text message.

    It is a little strange, I agree, but it was probably for the best versus face to face. I'm willing to bet Paige must have been fuming when he sending his reply, and you know he wanted to cuss his ass out, ; at least that's my initial reaction.

    You'd be pretty hard pressed to find any sympathetic ears for Torres in this thread, aside from the usual pointlessly argumentative types.

    They should move to Phoenix International Raceway. LOTS of space, excellent roads, and we can all party at your house!

    The part where Tollet muses about a bigger venue and selling 300,000 tickets is terrifying. I'm assuming this is all just an elaborate game of chicken and that they're not really going to move, but yeah. 300,000 people would be horrible.

    I'm sure 300,000 was based on two weekends...so really 150,000 for a one weekend festival, which is still terrifying.

    I'd like to see a Bonnaroo style set up with a Coachella style lineup (minus the hippies obviously).

    Right. That's exactly what the article said: "Tollett... said his ticketing agency had told him they could have sold 300,000 tickets to the two weekends of Coachella and 80,000 tickets to Stagecoach, making the prospect of a larger venue appealing."

    And yeah, doubling the attendance would be insane.

    While obviously some acts merit huge sets (like both you mentioned), I actually like "festival sets". Sure I can sit through an hour and a half of my favorite band, but the beauty of festivals to me is getting a quick dose of a lot of acts that maybe you wouldn't pay to see in full. Fifty minutes is enough for me for a lot of the acts I see at Coachella, and a Bonnaroo style of set times would be rough for me. But I know I'm probably in the minority here.

    I'd support doubling the attendance, as long as they have shuttle buses, and I get the front rail with Ken & Chris.

    Yeah, I feel you'd miss a lot with longer sets. Either other acts, or parts of the set. I don't freely those specified acts deem longer sets, thought I'd prefer one from MMJ much more than S&D. But that's just me.

    I would support longer sets, one of my choices for going to Coachella for so long was seeing many performers for one ticket price, but you got cut short of some sets, especially compared to the tour sets. Certain artist I would still see on their own tour due to a proper show/staging (NIN/Chem Bros etc), imagine if you will, a Chemical Brothers set from 11pm-3am? You jam band folk can have your crazy long sets too. It would be magic.

    Double the attendance? They would probably find a venue that is double the size if not larger. If they sold out two weekends in less than a week, they can take the risk of changing the venue and increasing capacity.

    All stages with no sound bleed from its neighbor? Relocation of the Do-Lab so people at the main stage can stop bitching about "that annoying techno noise from the don't lab"?! Fix the flow of human traffic even more! We could possibly get turkey legs also people.

    AND WHAT ABOUT RV CAMPING POSSIBLY BEING BACK?!

    Love the Polo Fields, but lets face it people.
    Coachella in Indio is OVER

    Basically this. There is a lot of behind the scenes shit going on. Only think I know for certain is Goldenvoice/AEG has been big brother pushing little brother(Indio, Coachella Valley) around. Indio is standing up for itself, and the backlash is expected. I'm gonna find San Torres and make it my mission to have a sit down with him.
