Base ticket price gross for Coachella is in the $25m range PER WEEKEND in 2013. it was $47m for both weekends in 2012 and there's been a price hike.
Then one has to figure in revenue from food/beer/hotels/shuttle/camping. I still think dollar for dollar Saquatch is left in the dust.
I liked Macklemore before he got popular.
JUST SO YA'LL KNOW!
I also haven't listened to his new stuff.
Camping is included with the Sasquatch festival ticket, Bumble.
Macklemore is soooooooo bad.... he opened for Blue Scholars a couple years ago in nyc... Absolutely terrible. If you had told me then that cheeseball would have a number 1 song and get huge I would have told you to fuck off. I still think it's so weird. When I went home over break, Thrift Shop's all over the radio, my mom's singing it. lol

Walked by when Macklemore played in SF and the place was a shit show of kids getting dropped off by parents and whatnot. Sold out and the kids had a lot of energy waiting outside to get in. Had no clue who he was at the time and was surprised he had a number one song. Gave it a cursory listen and chalked it up to some random high school one hit wonder popularity thing. The demographic was definitely white teens. I assume it will come and go in a few years.
Sasquatch 1993 headliner: Tag Team
I would watch that
Ok, I am not really a Macklemore fan, but I have to say this video impressed me. The first song especially is pretty fantastic. It is not every day you hear a rapper standing up for gay marriage. You don't have to watch the whole thing, just give the first song he performs here a try.
One of his classics.
But you should atleast check this one out. Maybe?
Enough about him, I like Shad.
