I see his point, but he could have communicated it in a way that doesn't make him look like a pessimistic fartchart. The whole thing screams subversion for the sake of subversion.

That article was terribly written and wasted about 3/4 of the entire column on shit that was inflammatory for the sake of being inflammatory without even providing many solid points, nor humor for that matter.
That being said, I would kinda agree with the assertion that "festival like there aren't for people that like music", the crowd has become pretty retarded lately. It's like attending Coachella is some symbol of status, fashion parade, or an expensive way to get laid for a good numbers of fucks, so I can see where the author is coming from. What the hell else is new though.
"And I know that I gotta be above it now
And I know that I can't let them bring me down
And I gotta bide my time as a face in the crowd
And I know that I gotta be above it now"
He's jealous of fat people
