I used to love that area last year, this year the fucking thumping from the crap they were playing in the Yuma just sucked.

    Or how bout this: no food whatsoever over by the Sahara, tear those fences down, put a half GA/half VIP beer garden over by the Rose Garden, and if any of the tweakers in the Sahara want food (they won't) they can come up to the Yuma area to the big food court.
    Not a bad idea, but those stands that are over there are part of the Polo Field infrastructure. If they could change the location of those stands, then they could get rid of that beer garden. I do not like that those stands are not directly behind a tent.

    since the rumor is that they're expanding the grounds next year, maybe they'll address this.

    This is exactly the opposite of what I was suggesting. If dude wants to avoid the crowds and enjoy the Sahara while hanging out with a beer, he should get a VIP pass and hear the Sahara sets from the Rose Garden.

    Lollapalooza is nowhere near as cool as Coachella, but they have a lot more space to work with.

    Their Sahara "Perry's" is the size of our Coachella Stage (Main) and it gets PACKED... last year for Bassnectar was like the crowd for Radiohead at Chella
    With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams; it is still a beautiful world.

    the only thing i can think of would be:
    a) move the rose garden/VIP elsewhere and make that a beer garden. or make the front half of it a regular beer garden and the area beyond it VIP? this would allow more space directly back from the sahara.

    It's not sarcasm, you are a fucking stupid asshole. Let's break it down:

    1. Randy proposes a particular problem about actual space between the Sahara and the Beer Garden behind the Sahara
    2. VicViper suggests a set of solutions, one of which includes making the Rose Garden NOT VIP, with more actual space for regular ticket holders as a beer garden from which to view the Sahara
    3. You, stupidly, suggest, and I quote "Buy a VIP pass next year?" ignoring the actual problem that Randy has laid out, like an asshole.
    4. Tom, and then I, point out that your "solution," is actually not a solution to the actual problem laid out, but some sort of retarded suggestion about how Randy should just get VIP and watch everything from the VIP areas. The Rose Garden being one of these VIP areas.
    5. You, then, quote VicViper's suggestion that The Rose Garden be made into something NOT VIP, but scaled back so that there is actually more space behind the Sahara, and say that "this is what you were referring to."
    6. When questioned if by saying "You should just get VIP," you actually meant when you quoted VicViper's actual proposed solution to the problem and then asserted that this is what you meant by your statement, you respond by saying, "No! I meant that he should just get VIP!"
