    Default Coachella 2007 (the End)?

    A bunch of people i know that are going this year for some reason all share the common belief that this is coachellas last year. Just wondering if anyone knew what was going down for next year?

    The new URB shines some light on Goldenvoice's situation with the Polo Field.
    http://www.urb.com/features/157/HowtheWestWasWon.php

    Goldenvoice pays a very high rent to keep Coachella at the Indio Polo Fields. StageCoach seems to be an added bonus for the surrounding cities. Coachella will always be in the Coachella Valley, possibly further south of the indio polo fields, if Housing Developers get their way and engulf the large amount of land Empire Polo Fields sits on.

    Hopefully the owners have accepted GV's reasoning for not selling...let's just hope for the punk rock spirits to be in our favor...

    Skip Paige:
    Coachella will always be in the Coachella Valley. It might not always be in Indio. You can take a 10-minute drive south and fi nd areas that are not developed at all, and won’t be for 20 years. But Coachella can’t be anywhere else. So much of it is the environment and the weather and the palm trees and the mountains and the spirituality of the place. It can’t go to Phoenix. It can’t go to Vegas. And the people down there—whether it’s the city of Indio or the City of Coachella or the Palm Springs tourism board—they all love the show.
    hells YEAH, it can go to Phoenix! That would be awesome.

    It is not the end of Coachella.... But it is the last year at the polo grounds as the venue has been sold and the previous owners stated at last years event that this, 2007, would be the final Coachella at this location. I took a drive south of the polo fields to look for a possible location for Coachella 2008 and came across a sign near a large field that read:
    Future Home of Coachella Music and Arts Festival


    The desert shall remain the home of our precious musical release.

    "So the Audi rep comes up to me and says, “Hey Sid, I need your help. There’s somebody in one of our Audi’s right now masturbating.” So I go and look inside and she’s in the passenger side. I knock on the glass and wave to her. She does her thing, pulls her skirt back down, jumps out and the fi rst thing she says to me is, “There’s nothing better than fresh, new vinyl.” And I’m thinking, “That’s funny because this is leather.” "


    LMFAO

    Don't run your mouth about stuff like this unless you have photographic evidence. It's just plain cruel.

    Coachella will be in the same general vicinity for the rest of its existence, even if it is not at the Empire Polo Fields.
