    this.

    in fact, it should be seen a ringing endorsement in our eyes when a CoS writer lampoons Coachella.

    Also, C3 are also on record saying 40% of attendees come from out of state.

    Let's reemphasize this.

    The more we talking about shitty journalists, the more influence they will have.

    It's really much better to just ignore them.

    The link says:

    "In 2012, gross revenue from beverage sales at Lollapalooza exceeded 5.5 million, an increase of 38.5% in revenue from 2010."

    How exactly does that stupid stat translate into 30% PROFIT?


    And full disclosure...that website is for a full service beverage concessionaire...they would totally know the ins and outs of Lollapalooza's financials. The same way you talking to a dipshit TSA agent in customs makes you think that TSA agents know the ins and outs of an airline's flight loads.

    Coachella is $9mil range for food/drink sales.

    If a huge chunk of Lolla's audience is under 21 then the booze number will take big hit.

    20ish% of direct gross for C3 and 30% of C3 profit given the booze profit margins.

    Probably. Economists definitely don't need to know the difference between gross revenues and net profits.

    The lineup is mainstream and quite awful, with a few exceptions, like Spoon. Coachella blows it away this year, as usual.

    Tickets sold out pretty quickly, but the hope is that as people relax about the EVENT and realize the LINEUP isn't all that, they'll find better ways to spend the weekend. Oh, and scalpers will freak the fuck out when they realize they're $2k in with no chance of profit.

    They're still over $350 on Stubhub, so hopefully it evens out. There should be plenty of folks just wanting to recoup their $250 down the line.

    understandable, but there will be a fuckload of people trying to offload tickets in the surrounding area.

    the more you know.

    you'll be able to get a three day. the single day passes are plastic wristbands, three days are cloth.

    Schedule is up!!! And for my tastes, very little conflict to deal with. I may pop in late Friday and probably stay on the Bud Light side most of Friday and the Samsung side Sat-Sun.

    Friday is pretty good. Just spend most of the day at Lake Shore until Phantogram, really. Saturday and Sunday, though, yikes.

    Krewella vs Calvin Harris and Kings of Leon vs Skrillex? That's going to piss off all the bros and basics.
    7/26 Au Revoir Simone @ The Roxy, 8/1 Arcade Fire, the Unicorns, Dan Deacon at the Forum, 8/2 Burger a-Go-Go, @ Observatory, 8/9 Warpaint @ Observatory, 8/10 Warpaint @ The Ace, 8/23-24 FYF Fest, 9/11 Swans @ Roxy, 9/18 Neutral Milk Hotel @ Hollywood Bowl, 9/19 Chvrches @ Palladium, 9/30 Cibo Matto @ the Roxy, 10/9 Zola Jesus @ El Rey, 10/16 Massive Attack @ Greek Theater, 10/26 Asobi Seksu & Slowdive @ Royale

    man, looking at the schedule just re affirmed how uninteresting the lineup is this year. pitchfork and riot are great alternatives. But shit, now I spend 500 bucks for music festivals during the summer, instead of 200 bucks in chicago.

    Holy shit, I didn't realize exactly how awful this lineup is. Friday is actually pretty good, but Saturday, the first act I would absolutely HAVE to see isn't until Spoon at 6:45, and Sunday, there are exactly 2 acts who I'd be really interested in, one of whom I've already seen (Glenn Hansard) and whose performance I left early because he has Wayne Coyne Syndrome.
