    They solved the problem by giving Mr. Torres a buffalo.

    While I love the idea of no curfews and a redesigned venue from scratch, I don't think those benefits outweigh the larger crowds and larger venue. I actually like how it's a relatively small area. It makes it much easier to skip around between stages and a see a little bit of everything. I am already so exhausted after a weekend of Coachella at it's current size, I couldn't imagine having to run around a venue 2 or 3 times the size. This is why I don't really have an urge to go to glasto or the roo. I hope they stay put, but I'm sure GV will find a way to keep most of the Coachella charm no matter where they move to though.
    Let's go on a livin' spree!

    Agreed. I like the way they have it now, and obviously, because I keep going. Switching locations would be a drag, but interesting. I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that I'm sure everythings going to get worked out. Sam Torres and his tax are the new "they're going to build condos on the polo grounds."

    I don't support ragging on this guy because of his race. That is very wrong.

    I do support ragging on him for being a total buzzkill and doing his best to ruin a great thing.

    goldenvoice brings in everything for the show. sure there is some landscaping and some structures in the vip areas, but everything else is there for a month or so and taken down at the end. all they would need is a piece of land.

    What you guys said. That's what turns me off about Glastonbury. That thing is immense. This would motivate me to get in shape, though so...Bring it on! As long as it stays in the family, I would be happy. I can keep crashing at my parents' in Coachella, CA, and avoid paying for a hotel.
    Upcoming: 04/11/14-04/13/14 - Coachella Weekend One; 04/18/14-04/20/14 - Coachella Weekend Two; 08/19/14 - NIN/Soundgarden (Isleta Amphitheater - Albuquerque, NM)

    And probably a few million dollars worth of palm trees to line the perimeter.

    Thats why he is doing this instead of managing one of the casinos in the area.

    interesting is the prospect of a "Coachella" festival that not in Coachella. Can't see them changing the name - sorta like how none of the 3 "Woodstock" festivals(69/94/99) were actually in Woodstock(Bethel, Saugerties and Rome)

    Grass fields for 100,000 ain't cheap, when they don't have the Horse people pay for it all.

    I've done dusty ground and concrete parking lot festivals in the heat. Never again.

    Even if they leave Indio I would be shocked if Coachella isn't held in the Coachella valley.

    No more added cost, no new venue! Suck it up government and be happy we pay your over priced salaries!

    Does anybody who lives in the area or gives more of a shit or me know when the vote or whatever to find out whether or not this council dude's stupid idea is getting approved or not? I see several news agencies reporting it as if it's actually a done deal based on those texts.

    Personally, it's a little weird to think about going to Coachella in a different place but ultimately I really don't give a shit as long as there's a line of palm trees. The entire rest of what makes Coachella so beautiful for the experiencer is just their lighting scheme and the mountains. I don't really think more people would make for a worse experience as long as there was enough room. Frankly, I'm at a point in my life where I catch every show from the back. I get annoyed standing nearby people. As long as there's somewhere with a view of the screen where I won't constantly get bumped into or have some asshole walking in front of me, I'm in--no questions asked.

    I think Urb just wants to get hits post holiday cause they didnt see this all go down over the weekend. So yeah, pretty much they misread.

    So you’re saying that The article postd by My Desert on tuesday holds no water? Where he said he would back off on the tax? http://www.mydesert.com/article/2012...0102/207030310 Double check please. and unless Coachella makes an official statement, stop trying to catch up to what transpired over the weekend and you just want some attention post holiday
