I love Coachella, and to complain about it seems futile and unappreciative, but it must be done. Just venting here…
1. Our camping group showed up early to get a spot in lot 8, but for SOME REASON they were diverging the cars into two lines. The right lane went toward lot 8 and the left lane went way back into bumfuck lot 4. At this point lot 8 was only half full, but we ended up as far away as possible. And this is what we get for showing up early? The whole line of cars near us were pretty pissed off as well. I really need an explanation of this from Coachella. This ruined a lot of our Coachella experience being so far away. Why wasn't lot 8 filled up first, and then cars diverted to other lots?
2. Heneiken house. Bring back the dome with the roof visuals. The house was TOO BRIGHT. People retreat to the heineken for some darkness and air conditioning, BOTH seemed to be missing this year. The vibe was better with the dome shape.
Major props to the YUMA TENT. They got it 100% right this year. Just the right enough amount of space. PERFECT sound system. KEPT IT DARK with just the right amount of lighting. No annoying LED boards and lights, thats what the Sahara is for….and I can only handle the Sahara for 20 minutes before the overblown visuals gets out of control. Please, please keep it nice and dark in the coming years. The warehouse vibe is greatly appreciated.
