    Default Will you help me?

    How can you help me?

    Well perhaps I'm getting a little ahead of myself. Let's not forget our manners, I should introduce myself first. My name's Jarvis, I'm British by birth but am currently living in Germany. Munich to be precise. Nice to meet you.

    Introductions complete, what am I up to? During 2007 I'm travelling to twelve music festivals, spread across three continents and eight countries. Why? I'm searching for the perfect music festival. Does it exist? If so, what is it? If not, what elements when collected together would create a perfect festival? Can an individual moment define the perfect festival?

    And I'm excited to say that it all starts at Coachella, and that's where I need your help. I want to talk to you, the Coachella festival goer. I want to know what makes the festival so special, I want to know why you go.

    If you'd like to help, visit me at:

    I look forward to hearing from you. Maybe we'll even meet at Coachella.

    I don't know that any festival is more special than another. I think the average concert goer who chooses Coachella over the other fests did so due to location. Where we live dictates for the most part which festival we choose to see. If I lived in Chicago, I would attend Lolla. It all depends on the region for most. Yes, there are some who are crazy rich or hippies who have the free time to travel abroad and can pick and chose but for the most part.

    It's all about location.

    I don't agree that location dictates. I go for the music and if I can save enough money to get there. I would not go to ozzfest just because I lived near it.

    Ozzfest is free and you don't need to travel. It tours and plays 40 cities. Not a good comparison. I think location dictates for alot of people because of cost and time off and things of this nature. You do not need hotel, car or airplane tickets if you are within driving distance and can camp. Coachella, Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo and Sasquach all have some overlapping artists and then they are very different too but as far as hitting a festival every year location dictates alot of it.

    Yes, cheers, I had an idea of how it might go.

    It's a serious request all the same, I'm writing a book about music festivals.

    Try Vive Latino, the yearly latinamerican rock music festival in Mexico City. It's right Coachella's next weekend. You could save flying from LA to Mexico City, but you'll need a place to stay since there is no camping zone.

    This year Cerati from Argentina y Cafe Tacuba from Mexico, among many others.

    I would not go to a festival that I lived near if I didnt like the music. That was my point.

    To travel is to discover that everyone is wrong about other countries
