    Change is inevitable, I know, but I'll be seriously bummed if they move it from the Polo Fields, even to this proposed second site.

    Work it out, guys.

    Yes, that's what I mean. Having to deal with 150,000 people pushing and shoving to get to the rail for a band like Rage Against the Machine sounds pretty much like the opposite of a good time to me.

    As I said, I doubt they are really considering changing anything. It just seems like a lot of empty threats to me.

    And if it's the end of a Coachella; glad I went during the best years. Neener neener noob wieners

    I doubt the beer garden thing goes away.

    I wish Goldenvoice had bought Lubken Ranch, that would've been an amazing place to move to.

    I don't believe any of this to be idle threats or talk...
    Sam torres tried to get the indio city council to approve this duplicitous proposal to FORCE a tax increase upon the backs of GV customer base to fix budget shortfalls in the city instead of making tough choices and cutting spending... paul t is not stupid and KNOWS he neede to nip this $HIT in the bud because what is going to happen next year when indio undoubtedly overspends and has another budget crisis? Ohhh wait I know they'll just tax the music festivals with the same myopic logic and litany of excuses on how this makes senses for indio... paul t HAD to confront this and draw a line in the sand... I don't believe he will hesitate for a second after making such a public statement he will rip coachellfest up from the roots and relocate it elsewhere... I would be very sad to see it leave and could only hope it doesn't come to pass... if it did move I could only hope it stays southern ca.
    Stays on grass (no deserts/dirt lots/no stadiums)

    The board will be taken down and we'll have to choose between the Bonnaroo or Lollapalooza board.

    The first article mentions 225,000, and that's how they always seems to report it, they count each day separately. They used to say 180,000 back when they did 60,000 a day.

    I WOULD read this as increasing 33%, not 100%. But the Stagecoach 80,000 figure doesn't make sense if you look at it that way (It's usually capped at 55,000).

    We should keep in mind that this is a text message from a guy who was specifically trying to fuck with someone, and who mixed up the 2 polo clubs. Also, saying you CAN double attendance is not the same as saying you will. Right now, they are running pretty close to the legal capacity. If you knew you could theoretically sell an extra 75,000, it's not a gamble to get a new space big enough to add 10,000.

    I never said anything about a ruse, just not to take the 300,000 as a literal intention of doubling the capacity.

    Will they be bumping up taxes for the tamale festival? That's more important to find out at this time. Need tamales.
    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.

    Have room in my back garden for some small acoustic sets and a Freshers lemonade stand, if that helps.

    NO NorCal.

    NO Orange County.

    Double the attendance, more than double the festival footprint, no curfew/after hours activities, beers/booze where you want? Where do I sign up? Sounds like Glasto!
