In that case, I am about to join the lunch community in two hours, and we've now made the definition of community so broad that it makes no sense at all.
    You act as if I made up the definition myself. Its a broad term to begin with.

    Newbies like me are looking to be helped by coachella veterans, not to be personally attacked.

    Anyway, props to everyone who contributed their list.
    Hey genius--Coachella veterans have practically written the entire FAQ page, plus stickied tabs on what to do, where to go, what to bring. You're being blasted for starting yet another stupid thread in the pool of stupidness.

    Of course it's a broad term, but that doesn't mean the specific sense that the op used (and that Nathan and myself are objecting to) is not more narrow. You can't cherry pick the broadest part of the definition, ignore the parts we are objecting to, and then call someone else a dummy for disagreeing with the applicability of the word to Coachella.

    In other words, although Coachella is a mass gathering of people who are temporarily participating in a common activity, it does not meet the specific sociological definition of community that the burner hippie douchebags are trying to give it.

    Im not defending their definition, but im also not denying the true definitions of the word. To say that its not something that it is, is well, dumb.


    EDIT: I will openly admit that I didnt realize you were arguing a specific use of the term. I simply thought he was just flat out saying that Coachella is not a community. Appologies.

    I never said it wasn't a community. It's just nothing like this spiritual burning man-esque community, where people share everything and all that stuff that the OP keeps trying to make it out as. It's more of a gathering than anything. Mitch said it better than I ever could.

    Its also tough for me to agree with some of that because that is exactly how my camp opperates. We make a list each year, and everyone brings something that helps sustain the camp for the weekend. And when there are 31 cars in our camp it feels very much like that type of community.

    While I unequivocally agree with you, I have to say that I feel a sense of community while at coachella, regardless of the tools that I see wearing VIP wristbands, strutting into the beer garden like they own the place. I just want to HAMMER punch them into the ground and steal their girl.

    You make it sound like watching the fest at home on your computer is the same experience as seeing it in person - presuming all the acts you want to see permit the clear footage for the stream.

    Wait, what?

    No one is denying that part of the Coachella experience -- both good and bad -- is sharing everything in the context of a crowd. People can be awesome at Coachella. They can give you free beers. They can build up a sense of energy that makes performances more memorable.

    What we are saying is that there's no greater meaning or spiritual value to the experience. We don't go home from Coachella with our perspective about the universe and the meaning of life altered. There's no brotherhood of man that comes out of it. None of which is to say "I may as well just stay at home and watch it on the fucking internet."

    In fact, half of what made Tucker the Festival Guy so interminable was his idea that music festivals are some sort of cosmic, metaphysical experience, and that the whole thing can be made even better if we somehow turn it into a secular communal religion.

    only one item left on my Coachella bucket list:

    1. star-fuck a member of a mid-level band to get an artist wristband for the weekend

    postscript: came this close <-> to going down on a Skinny Lister roadie on the blue line shuttle for his artist wristband (he was flying back to England after their early show). But I then thought the lowest I'd sink would be the guitarist from FOALS, who proved much harder to get to.

    This, or just "play coachella", really.
    Life goal of of mine. Oddly enough, your goals must be higher by that point. I think it'd be funny to just get that exposed, like mid-tier, and say, "Well, guys, we made it. Time to retire to sheep herding or something"

    Wait, so you don't come back slightly altered in your worldview?
