    Stagecoach has drinking everywhere. No restricted beer areas. BTW - I got my Stagecoach tickets in the mail already.

    Was going to say curfew, but realized that I prefer Coachella as a day festival.

    If that shit went till 4-5-6 in the morning, and then started back up at 11......that would just be insanity.

    Would definitely prefer to be able to take a brew closer to the stages.

    Beer Gardens: That's a city ordinance, you stupid dumb fuck. This is well documented ALL OVER THE FORUM.
    Noise curfew: I am. Not that anyone respects the noise ordinance anyway. Maybe stop being such a fucking selfish asshole and keep your big stupid mouth shut in the middle of the night.
    Band sets: Because then you'd be complaining about there not being enough acts on the poster. You can't have it both ways. Not to mention the fact that most of the smaller tier acts don't have more than 45 minutes of material anyway. Genius.

    I chose set times. That's my only true gripe. If the act has one album and / or not enough material to cover more than a 45 minute set, then fine, but there's no reason a group like The Afghan Whigs should play a condensed 45-50 minute set when they have a large enough catalog to cover a set that exceeds an hour.

    My first year attending was 2003.

    The entrance actually is the least of my complaints, and the "worst thing about the current Coachella format," which is why I still go.

    This year will be my 9th time attending.

    it'd be cool if they opened all the lanes in the mid afternoon time when most people arrive. there's nothing worse than walking up to huge lines while half of the scanners are not being used at all. other than that what's to complain about? it's goddamn coachella.

    As much as id like to carry an extra $12 Heineken around the polo fields to watch my favorite band, I really hated getting red wine slopped on me, my blanket and my wife at OSL by some sloppy drunk housewife. Vote: Noise curfew. I really did like seeing bands at all hours of the night at bonneroo...

    So why is Stagecoach not following said ordinance.

    Yes, BREAKK THAT noise curfew. Coachella doesn't need bands/DJ's playing stages til the sun starts rising but 1 or 2 quality DJS in the campgrounds wouldn't hurt.

    Fuck City Hall and the whiny blue haired locals

    its a different festival. the city dictates. we dont get to make up all the rules. we have to follow rules to put on an event just like people attending have to follow rules.

    stagecoach isnt allowed to have cooking in camping but coachella is for car camping. again. different festival, different rules.

    This is actually really interesting - is there legal documentation form the city somewhere that states why the festival where rapes have occurred allow alcohol to be walked around with, outside of beer gardens?

    I would love it if the festival went until 2 or 3 am and started an hour or two later. The beer gardens don't bother me one little bit (I actually prefer them), and the set times complain it just straight up dumb.

    Ah I see. So it is our elected officials who do this. You know, because they have the mentality of a corporate drone.

    Never thought about it.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.
