    Actually pants like the ones featured in your avatar are known to be a quite common cause of crotch rashes, due to poor air flow and excess moisture build up in the crotchal. Talcum powder usually helps to avoid such nasty rashes and chafing.

    Because some people have some very strong and emotional memories and or life changing events attached to Coachella. By placing some artists on a cruise ship and naming it Coachella, it decreases the perceived value of the original festival. I know a lot of people felt that the festival was already not as "special" because they split it into two weekends last year, and this doesn't help the situation.

    I understand why they attached the name Coachella to the festival, it's a very recognizable name now and a very strong brand, but I just wish that they had changed the name to something else. Even Seacoach would of worked, they did the same with Stagecoach. I mean even HARD didn't name their cruise "HARD Ship" or "S.S. HARD", they named it "Holy Ship!!"

    Glastonbury is probably the world's best music festival and they don't even have it every year. They also don't have any spin-offs. When you go to Glastonbury, you know it's going to be a special and unique weekend and that there is nothing else like it. You use to be able to say the same thing about Coachella, but I don't feel like that is the case anymore. Coachella is slowing becoming like EDC and every other festival out there that has the same "festival" throughout the year. Yes, more people get to experience it and it's still an amazing time, but that's not the reason the organizers are doing it. They want more people to experience it because it means that they end up with more money; they don't care that the things that made the festival special and unique, slowly begin to disappear and that it just ends up being another event. Coachella and Glastonbury are great examples of what the festival's organizers philosophy and attitudes are.

    Music festivals have become extremely popular over the past few years and maybe we are just reaching a peak in their popularity and the organizers are trying to cash in while they can. If that is the case, then we might see a contraction and a return to only a few special festivals.

    I was at the beach today. That explains my situation. The waves were really big and sandy.

    APW would probably be a smashing success now. It ended a year too early and wasn't called "Coachella East".

    They're not calling it "Coachella", they're calling it "S.S. Coachella", so the name is about as different as "Seacoach" except it relays the actual brand name properly. HARD has proven that they are not the best promoters, so taking a branding lesson from them may not be the wisest decision.
