    Angry Coachella 2013, AKA DudChella

    Hotels in Valley--20-25 % unnoccupied, weekend one.

    Rolling Stones--last time they will ever tour and you couldn't fork the 5 million. You could have made history. Instead, you get the Chili Peppers?

    What does the lack of occupancy at valley hotels have to do with Coachella not booking The Rolling Stones? There were 75,000 + people at weekend one.
    10/8 - Little Dragon @ Marquee (Tempe, AZ)
    10/11 - Carolina Chocolate Drops @ Rialto Theater (Tucson, AZ)
    11/10 - The Black Keys @ US Airways Center (Phoenix, AZ)
    4/10/15 - 4/12/15 - Coachella

    The hotels had their chance years ago, but they chose to jack the prices beyond acceptable. When camping came into play and the fest grew, they still got filled. Apparently, back when there were one day tickets that created problems for hotel bookings, and by that time, car camping was offered. Camping at Coachella is what has made a dent in the hotels losing out, not whether the Rolling Stones were there or not. BTW... Coachella made history a long time ago, my friend...Now it's working on the future.
    Its like the Infinite Monkey Theorem, if you put X amount of monkeys in a room with a typewriter and ask them to give you Shakespeare 99% of them will fling their shit at you while the other 1% will masturbate in the corner.

    Beverly,

    I don't understand what you are trying to say, most of the hotels in the valley run high occupancy rates and high room rates during the Coachella weekends. Most run 95% + and rates of well over $200 + so they do just fine even with the camping aspects.

    So fucking false. This was seriously one of my favorite years, music wise. If you didn't want to see the Chili Peppers, nobody was going to force you

    Great year. Both weekends sold out, regardless of secondary market. One of the best of the 10 I've attended.

    I only have one child and she wants to come too. I have committed to a year off and all of a sudden everybody wants to go back. It's like when I got pregnant and my husband suddenly decided that he needed to explore the art of brewing beer. It's cruel.

    Life is too short to take a year off. Take a year off from something you dislike, instead.
    C'mon, Gunz....you are the very spirit of Coachella. We will have serious and damaging abandonment issues if you don't come.

    Yea, this was year #8 for me, and by far my favorite. Generally Coachella keeps getting better for me almost every year - since every year Coachella has a new record number of bands playing. And the quality keeps getting better too. So really it's impossible to screw up if they keep putting out such great overall lineups every year. 2013 had 176 band playing, topping the previous all time high in 2011 of 168 bands. 2012 took a drop from 2011 due to the 2 weekend gig (143 total). For comparison the first 3 day festival in 2007 had 115 bands.

    ^^ confuses quantity with quality; misses other key points to a successful festival.

    I am also considering taking next year off in favor of Outside Lands or Sasquatch or possibly something other than a music festival. It all depends on the lineup next year for me. Highly doubt I am doing pre-sale.

    Whatever year Daft Punk returns, I will be there. But I don't think it will be next year and if it is then I'll be back for my eighth Coachella. There are also a lot of other acts that would bring me back, but the majority of them are pipe-dreams. If I take next year off, I'll be back in 2015 for sure.
