    Roni Size was stellar. I liked the fact his crowd was light.

    The only problem I have with The Yuma is that the guy needs to lay off the smoke machine button. Could barely breathe during The 2 Bears even when standing by the back doors. You are going to have lines for that tent, can't really complain about it but seriously, cough cough.

    Yeah, I gotta say my biggest gripe with this year was not getting to see Four Tet. I like the tent itself, but they need to either make it twice as big or book only smaller acts in there, which would be kind of a waste, IMO.

    The Yuma tent is the only thing tempting me to pick up a resold wristband.

    I can deal with lines and pretty much everything else, but the quality of the sound coming out of the speakers really put a damper on it for me yesterday. Very disappointed, it almost makes me not want to go back... But I still will.

    Four tet and Luciano destroyed last night. Sound was 10/10, great bass. Lines were minimal w/ plenty of space to dance.

    Haha this was my thinking too.

    Every time I went over to it and saw a line I left, and every time there wasn't a line I went in.

    I did miss a lot of DJ sets I wanted to see though. (MJC, Richie, etc.)

    The Yuma tent should be 3x bigger. For every 10 people standing in line were 20 disappointed people who didn't want to wait for that shit. They need to knock out that food court wall and expand it sideways.

    This definitely made me want to spend less time in there. The discotheque theme was cool, but I don't want to be inside at Coachella.

    Lines were way too long for Four Tet and Maya Jane Coles so I missed them both which was super disappointing. I understand why they did it, given the empty dome 2 years ago. The music has definitely caught on since. Sucks though because neither Four Tet or Maya Jane Coles are going to play Phoenix anytime soon.

    i think people are forgetting how large some of the crowds were at oasis dome. they weren't packing yuma to the walls, and even a crowd the size of what high contrast had would've probably resulted in at least a short line at the yuma. four tet and hawtin had lines, but if they had been in say the mojave during subheadline/headline acts like roni size was, their crowd's would've seemed similarly tiny.

    in order for them to have an easier time of managing the doors (and not needing goons to stand in front of them), you almost have to build the venue beyond it's projected maximum capacity so that it's likely never to over-fill. if they rotated the yuma 90 degrees and added doors at the opposite end (so you could enter/exit at either end), this would probably alleviate much of the crowding/line issues they had in the terrace area. that would require them to remove the bathrooms and/or most of the food vendors on that same side. which is probably fine as not once did i ever see crazy lines at any of the food places, save for the waffle ice cream place.

    Yep. I loved it, actually. Never set foot inside, just enjoyed more room everywhere else while sheeple stood in line waiting for someone they wouldn't get to see.

    Never change, Yuma. Have a great summer.

    I liked the small capacity. I got there ten minutes early for the bigger acts I wanted to see full sets of, Four Tet, Maya Jane Coles, and Jamie XX and had no problem getting in before they even started. Granted I went both weekends and was 20 minutes late to Jamie weekend one and saw the crazy line and moved on. No p-roblem the other times. No line for Lauren Lane, Seth Troxler, or DJ Harvey either. Also saw a bit of the 2 Bears, wanted to stay for more but I had already been in their for 2 hours and needed to mix it up. Hope I get another chance sometime, the 1st 15 minutes were building up well.

    How many Yuma acts actually had lineup issues?

    I only saw the big lineups for Jamie XX and 2Bears.

    Seriously. The complaining on here is crazy. I never waited for more than 20 minutes for Yuma, and I was ok with it, I put on extra sunscreen, had bubbles, and made friends with people in line and they smoked me up. They said they hated having to wait in line and I was like "yeah, but you knew you had to, right? so here, lets play a game." and they laughed and it was all good. Then again, I only saw Four Tet into DJ Harvey, 2 Bears only had like a 5 minute wait, Maya Jane Cole (after the late notice, so we only waited for like 5 minutes at 6:10). So, I guess I just had a different experience.

    That made me laugh. A large part of these forums is complaining, so it's no surprise. Sometimes it's hard to believe that people actually have fun at Coachella the way these forums talk about it.

    I saw the ridiculous lines and just walked right past it. Or sat and ate while watching the line grow and grow. There was one point where the people at the end of the line wouldn't even be able to see the front of the line, it was hilarious.

    I had a similar experience W2. Showed up 20 minutes before Four Tet was supposed to go on (during PT, he was 30 mins late) and got in with no line. My GF showed up a few minutes after Four Tet was supposed to start and only had to wait 15 mins. The only time I had to wait was before Jamie Jones, and we only waited for 10 minutes. Every other time (MJC, Hawtin, maybe another) we showed up mid set and just walked right in. It seemed to me like they had things under control W2.

    I love the Yuma tent, but something has to change. There was a lot of bleed over into the tents. I was trying to listen to Father John Misty and all you could hear was this blaring bass and…oh wait.

    Never mind.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    what weekend did you go? because yuma only bled into the open air area of the heineken dome patio and into the food court/vendors area.

    The Yuma was amazing.
    Our group went in there first thing Friday (30 minutes before dj even began) to see it. We sat on the couches by the soundbooth and the guys there started giving us ice cold PBR's and Grey Goose/Sprites quicker than we could drink them. Thank the girls for that most likely.

    Came back to see Huoratrons set and Four Tet both were great.

    Line for Hawtin was stupid but oh well i saw other great shit.

    I saw some people aloud to cut in line by security at the front of the line as well as being let out a side entrance to use porta potties and let back in through that same side entrance, Can anyone speak from experience that these people were VIP ? I highly doubt they were artist/guest wristbands, Considering doing VIP if this is indeed a perk, I know its not listed anywhere
