Thread: organisers gross stupidity

    Default organisers gross stupidity

    you have to admire the genius who thought up the idea of banning taking sealed containers of water into a festival in the middle of the desert and thought that was sensible in 90 plus degree heat. wonder if anyone sued last year after getting heatstroke ?

    they probably got counter-sued for being an idiot and not preparing ahead of time.

    they have fountains, so if someone was going to get heatstroke, they could always spend $2 on ONE bottle of water and fill it up at the fountains.

    and where do you think people get money to throw festivals like this, the money tree?

    If you were dying of thirst in a ditch, I would not give you water.

    I bet you're one of those people who sue fast food chains for not warning you that the coffee is hot.

    actually, in the mcdonalds suit, they were serving their coffee almost 50 degrees more than any other restaurant at around 180-190 degrees. they deserved to get sued. who can drink that!?!?

    As long as they offer the free water, then they can't get sued. The fountain can save their asses any day.

    hope you all know that the people that harvest all the crops in the coachella/imperial valley also swim in that water you're drinking from that faucet.

    ya, because someone suffering a heat stroke can simply walk half way accross the polo fields to find a fountain. brilliant.

    Well, if you're stupid enough to not know that you have to drink water in the desert, then i think not being able to bring bottled water in is the least of your problems.

    Yeah i don't really understand why the faithful festival-goers are standing up for the bastards who don't let you just bring some fucking water into the place!
    It's ridiculous if you cant bring a sealed case of water bottles to a festival, they better have plenty of fountains as I like to keep hydrated, but I'm also spending a shit-ton of money to get there and be there.

    Thank fuck the Aussie dollar is at 80c....

    Jesus Christ you whiny bastards, a friend of mine snuck a gallon of water in last year. You all act as if you've never heard of anyone sneaking something into a concert before, let alone done it yourself. Use your imagination. God cries when you don't. Otherwise, STFU and bring money for water.

    If you're spending almost a hundred per day for admission, what's another $20-30 on nice, cold water? Other people spend less, but I drink at least 5 bottles on a normal day.

    Seriously, I don't get the big deal about paying $2 for water. Just pay for it and stop whining. They're not hard to find and I've never seen a line.

    You can spend $250 for tix, but a $2 bottle of water is a travesty? Get a life. Like the cat said before...buy one bottle & refill it in the drinking fountain....OR...just drink a lot before you go in and then spend most of the daylight hours in the tents.

    ok, so if you think about it, you had to buy the bottle at some point. that probably cost close to $2 anyways. so why not just pay for ONE bottle of water at the festival and fill it up? i don't get it, it's $2. and people aren't throwing this festival for charity, but christ, i've been to raves with more expensive water and NO faucets to refill. you'll be fine.

    i saw that movie too. it really doesn't apply here. unless a crazy monkey is running around.

    i've never understood the crying about having to pay for water. i spend ALOT more on merch than water, and i don't really get anything. it's the people who wast their money at the beer garden i don't get. you're in the middle of the desert in the spring. alcohol BAD.

    If you're too cheap to pay a lousy $2 for water, you shouldn't be going out, ever.

    The original coachella fest gave water for free...very nice of them.

    They did however not make any profit at the festival and only 20,000 showed up.
