Thread: Room for Improvement

  1. #1

    Default Room for Improvement

    Overall, very well done, GV. A few comments/suggestions, and these are pretty minor:

    1. Maybe a 1-2 minute grace period for artists that go a bit over. Cutting off Beck and Fishbone was a bit callous, I thought.

    2. Lack of paper programs at the beginning. I mean, they know how many they need by now, right? The app is nice, but batter life is valuable and a quick glance at a paper program makes life easy.

    3. The "record store," chronicled elsewhere, was a joke. Bring back Zia and signings.

    4. Some sound issues. With technology the way it is, it seems like this is something that can be done and with advance planning. Mojave sound on Friday afternoon was bad. Tom Odell should not have thumpy bass.

    The fact that these are pretty minor is testimony to how well the festival is run nowadays.
    I have been to concerts. I will go to concerts in the future.

    I love that sets start and end on time.

    Only issue was Sunday security lines getting in were WAY too long. We shouldn't have to wait 45 min to get in.

    Also didn't care we had different wristbands for beer on Sunday...minor inconvience.

    It bugged me that the screens at the Outdoor Theater weren't raised. Couldn't see shit sometimes. I'm fairly short, I rely on those things. Otherwise, don't know what else to suggest.

    You know they were lowered due to the wind, right?


    And I have no issues with the festival cutting off artists if they go over. Especially if its right before a headliner. Arcade fire had to start 10 mins later due to not having even a few mins earlier because Beck did his thing.


    One major thing was making sure everyone went to see Outkast by ''claiming'' they went on at 11:05, when clearly there was no way it would happen since Girl Talk had a ridiculous stage set up. It wont happen this weekend, no way.

    1. A 21 and over secret passage between the lockers and the cantina would be a nice shortcut to the South Terrace.
    2. Way too many camera passes in the camera pits at times. And for a couple sets, they gave them a song or two extra to shoot, which over the course of a 50 minute set, is like half of the set being bothered by cameras and their step stools blocking our views.
    3. I'm not sure who the entitled douchebags are who also get let into the camera pit, but they might have been the most annoying people in the entire festival. (not talking about the respectful family, mostly of younger kids who are clearly related to Paul or someone else at the top; they were fine). I'm talking about the tall-ass bros who high five each other and take selfies the entire set blocking the view.
    4. Beck for fucking with Arcade Fire's time allocation
    5. People who claim to have massive disdain for the crowd, yet are cold and absolutely unwelcoming themselves

    Aaaaah, hahaha! I'm not the brightest crayon in the box. Figured there was a reason. I just got up close when I could but couldn't always. Darn the circumstances!

    1 . Main stage had the worst sound of any stage . Arcade fire I could talk normal volume and be heard no problem. This pissed me off more than anything , all those speakers and only Calvin Harris was allowed to use them ? Ruined almost every mainstage act , it wasn't a concert it was like listening on your phone .
    Spicy pie is mainstream shit.
