    Both weekends certainly had a bunch of people but I wouldn't call wk2 crowded or the pics from wk1 being overly crowded. sure there are bottlenecks, but so. I agree with most of what TLGM said so if both yin and yang says it, it must be so ... cr****

    I should care more than I do. I was able to get up close enough for most of the bands I wanted to see, and that is what matters to me.

    I bought tickets for weekend 1 during the presale, not knowing if i'd be able to get time off work or afford the plane tickets.

    I'm highly likely to do the same this year.

    Worst thing that happens is I lose half the price on the sale; but since I know i'll want to go pretty much regardless of lineup, it seems like it's a worthwhile risk.

    Aye. It seemed remarkably easy this year, with a couple of notable exceptions (*cough* YUMA *cough*).

    you're the only person who went both weekends who thinks this.

    If anyone actually believes that there was 90,000 people each day both weekends then may god have mercy on your soul.

    When my daughter was trying to track down her lost driver's license on Sunday, one of the more official-looking security types we encountered kept shrugging and saying " 120,000 people a day."

    If you add paid attendance,comps, staff and talent, I think 100K is a more plausible figure.

    Man, that security guard doesn't know anything. If there were 120k people in side, and the fire marshall set the total capacity at 99k, they would have shut things down.

    I'm thinking at least 5k.
    Comps are down to hundreds per weekend from what I know, not thousands, they have become almost obsolete. Back in the mid 2000's there were around 5,000 per day. A major majority of people with guest bands, def. close to 100%, paid for them just like everyone else.

    they didn't shut it down in 2010 when they were a good 10,000 over capacity.

    90k? It did not seem like it even during Weekend 1. Plenty of more space Weekend 2, but still.

    Weekend 2 was the least claustrophobic I've been on the fields since before the 2010 clusterfuck. I only had one anxiety attack, and that was right before RHCP when I decided to go see Jamie Jones instead. I am quite happy with that decision.

    It did feel like there was more room to sit and view the art pieces. It was even easy to find shade in the Palm Springs House thing.
