    Default Cool Urb Coachella Article

    http://www.urb.com/features/157/Howt...n.php?PageId=1

    "Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo
    * One half of Daft Punk, human after all / Coachella performer:: 2006
    At Coachella we lost our virginity again. What was going to be a few shows turned into more, and there was this tremendous response from the audience.

    Paul Tollett
    I tried every year since 1999 to get Daft Punk. That was a last-minute fluke, and why our ad was late. I told their manager, “Here’s how it would be. It’s going to be in the dance tent, and it’s going to be legendary. I’ll do anything I need to do. Tell me what we need to build. Anything.” They put that whole pyramid thing together. But it took a lot of money to get that going. The cynic in you thinks, “Well, maybe we offered too much money.” But I realize what it was. We offered enough for them to make the pyramid, and that’s what it was all about. They spent every single dime on that production. They walked away from that show without a dollar from what we paid them. That’s true art."


    haha I wonder how much Daft Punk got paid? oh and this year it says the budget is 15 million +

    What a great read!!! I'm feeling all tingly/excited/stressed and anxious to get the fruck outa here and get my ass to coachella...

    One of the amazing things 'bout coachella for me is that I get my love of music from my DAD...he was born in coachella, when he passed away I scattered his ashes over the coachella valley making my first skydive...every year I feel my dads spirit with me...

    Don't be mean I just couldn't resist sharing that bit after reading the article...thanks!

    That is a really good article. It really gives an idea of how insane it is to put on an event like Coachella. So every n00b should be required to read it, really.

    I think that last year somewhere of 60-80,000/day multiply by days of fest for the total attendance...165,000 is 'bout 55,000 per day which is 'bout right on the money

    wait, wait, wait, the math doesn't add up.

    let's assume they sold all the tickets at 252 a pop and 50,000 people attend each day:

    $12,600,000

    the article claims the budget is OVER $15,000,00, so they'r putting the show on at a loss, unpossible. what gives?
