    Default ~~ Official 2013 Lineup Approval Rating ~~ MARCH

    Over a month after the lineup was released, here's the March poll that will remain open for the month.

    How do you now rate this year's lineup?

    Interesting that 2010 had the highest ratings but was the worst Coachella (though, for reasons unrelated to the lineup).

    These ratings are really bizarre to me. The post Coachella 2010 score is very surprising to me. Also, in 2011 and 2012 there wasn't very much bitching once the line up was released. Not that I remember anyways. I also remember a lot of my friends in 2011 and 2012 trying to figure out if Coachella was possible for them because they were so impressed with the line up. This year the board was mostly bitching for the first few days after the line up was released and most people I talked to outside of the board about Coachella weren't too impressed with the line up. Yet somehow the 2013 line up has rated higher than both 2011 and 2012?

    I think the high rating of 2010 established so high of a benchmark that when the 2011 lineup was released, it couldn't live up to 2010 standards and people 'dropped' their rating to compensate.

    2012 DID have a generally unhappy EDM contingency exacerbated by acts dropping off the lineup in Feb / March.

    In 2013, more acts and an improved EDM card vs. last year is helping.

    When voting, it's hard not to compare the lineup to the prior year and adjust your vote accordingly.

    Weighted average

    (sum product of rating 1-5 and number of votes for each) / count of votes

    That is a mean, not a weighted avearge. I'm not a fan of graphs where the axis doesn't start at zero. Starting at 3.5 make 2010 look better than what the numbers show.

    But otherwise, thanks for running this and for so long. I love numbers and music, and any one who can combine them is cool with me.

    It's certainly not a simple mean. So, how are weighted mean and weighted average not interchangeable?

    It is a mean (add up all ratings divide by count, which is the same as sum product of rating 1-5 and number of votes for each), unless I'm missing something you are doing.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arithmetic_mean

    A weighted average when different groups make up unequal portions of a larger total. You survey 200 men and they rate a 4 on average and survey 100 women and they rate a 3 on average. The average of the two groups is 3.5, but the weighted average is 3.666.

    Weighted Mean / Weighted Average is correct.

    I can't see your picture.

    What are you weighting? You are doing a simple average/mean of the ratings in a month. Unless you are grouping multiple averages, you are not doing a weighted average/mean.

    Not trying to make a big thing. I really like that you run these.

    People lost their shit (not in a good way) last year when the lineup was released, Josh. Especially the (now previous) Sahara crowd. But the board was down for several days after the lineup was released and most of the bitching and complaining by boardees was done on the Coachella facebook page. I also recall the reaction to The Black Keys headlining a year after they subbed being extremely negative.

    In 2011, I remember a lot of people reacting negatively to the lineup, mostly the headliners (much like this year). I also recall hearing several complaints for having so much cheese dance music and dubstep on the lineup (Steve Angello, Axwell, Chromeo, Duck Sauce, Paul Van Dyk, Fedde Le Grand, Afrojack, Laidback Luke, Magnetic Man, Skrillex etc.)

    This year's reaction has been actually much more positive than the previous two years by those who post here. The only consistent complaint I seem to come across is regarding the headliners.
