    Default How much money did Budgetchella make

    this year? have the figures been released?

    hopefully its enough to cover last years loss and get back to producing coachella lineups we all have come to know and love over the years.

    2nd highest doesn't mean much when it has only gone to 3 days 3 times. so they are claiming this years attendence beat 2008? interesting. seemed very dead to me for the killers and the cure.

    i'm sure they can fudge the numbers to reflect what they need to. the real test will be how next years lineup looks. if it looks more like the budgetchella of this year, we will know they didn't do as well as they hoped again.

    Even if revenue went down (less people attended), they could still have increased profit as long as their expenses also went down (less big name headliners). It is quite possible that deciding to bring in less well-known musicians could actually be the profit-maximizing decision and have very little to do with the festival's lack of success in the previous year.

    fucking may? who? when? the festival was just a few weeks ago. have they released the numbers, mr. discharge? i haven't seen them yet. wait...do they release the numbers each year? also, will you be gracing us with your presence at lolla? someone needs to keep the dance party going well into the morning again.

    That's probably because the Killers were billed against the Chemical Brothers et al. Well that, and the fact that their music is terrible.

    The Cure? I don't know, I didn't watch them. But Friday and Saturday seemed packed to me.

    Disparaging remarks against the lineup is what I was referring to. I'm can't afford Lolla since I'm planning on Bonnaroo, Pitchfork, and ATP. I have no doubt MJA will be raving all night though.

    you will be missed at the rooftop afterparty, discharge.

    greg, i popped into the chems, but figured that the land of the lost was always that crowded for their headliner.

    again.. cant force bands to be available/agree to play for the dates of coachella.. I don't think line up is a real reflection of whatever point is trying to be made since it comes out to availability and other factors people not working here probably wouldnt think about.

    maybe i am wording it wrong. i feel that the past lineups have spoiled us. last years lineup, which i thought was fine, wasn't as grand as the previous years. yes, that is my worthless opinion, but one i feel was shared by many.

    D, if you could settle an issue i was having with a friend....when an artist signs on for such festivals as coachella, are there stipulations in the contract that say they cannot play other certain festivals that year?

    yes, the one that wouldn't stop after radhead was our doing. don't worry, i didn't introduce myself in fightclub terms, so you wouldn't have known either way.

    Thank you! This is the point I try to make every now and then in this here message board. Sometimes people act as though music festival promoters have access to any artist in the world.

    if you tried half as hard in life as you do on this forum, kingsblend, you would most likely have a job.

    God, you're a dick.
    This was the 2nd highest grossing Coachella dumbfuck. And, considering the economy being in shit shape, I consider that pretty damned good.
    Oh, wait...You wouldn't understand what good is if you were at the Killers and The Cure, would you?

    Speaking of discharges, can I ask where the fuck you come from, ShyGuy75? I'm thinking like maybe an anal drip or some shit like that...And, as far as the numbers go? Unless you're Paul Tollett, I really don't think it's for you to know, is it?

    This comes from someone who wants to keep the dance party going until morning, and then chooses The Killers and The Cure over the Chems and the land of the lost...Just stating the facts, ShyGuy75...

    menik, a real GV employee already commented, but i appreciate your blind loyalty and all you do here.

    if you care to explain why u think my comment is so dumb i would like to hear it. unless you are going to tell me that the same amount of money was spent on this lineup as was in the previous two years. i have had enough laughs for today.

    can someone inform VD that i, along with 90% of this board, don't read what it posts. yes, i understand that it was most likely sucking on a pacifier in the sahara tent all weekend, hoping that someone would come acknowledge it, and wouldn't know good rock music even if it came in the form of a shiny new meth pipe.

    What truth first off. They made money plain and simple, if you feel that they didnt make enough to please you well thats your thing. Not every festival can be like Bonnaroo for example and make a ton year in and year out regardless of ''budgets''. You should factor in that Goldenvoice had a festival the very next week called Stagecoach and that pretty much sold out all 3 days so I do not see them hurting for money in any regard. Truth is, when anyones ''dream lineup'' happens its because the timing couldnt be better, right place, right time. Please see 2004 for that.

    or you could follow along with what has been posted in the thread and try to make sense with your next post. comprehension has never been your strong suit, but you even out did yourself with that last one.
