just got this. sucks for a lot of people!
Hi there
I am unfortunately the bearer of bad news for everyone…
The organizers have decided on not having any outside vending at the festival this year. There will be food vending, band merch, and Coachella gear but no other vending booths like previous years.

Every weekend festival should have outside vending! So Indiophiles, which vendor you gonna miss the most? The tie-dye clothiers? The toe ring distributors? No wait, the hackey-sack men? Where will we go if we lose our hackey sack?!

it was nice to have somewhere to get sunglasses for $10 when you lose yours.

That sucks, I loved checking out the shops and getting items I needed/wanted. Room for more people?????

No way!! I love the vendors at Coachella! I usually leave with about 4-5 shirts at the end of the weekend. I also find cool new clothing companies this way.
This will really blow if this is true.

I don't think I've ever shopped at Coachella, apart from the requisite souvenir t-shirt. There's too much good music to spend my time at vendor kiosk!

What about the Virgin booth?

good question. i would guess that it would still be there, it's a pretty established partnership, but that non-corporate vendors are out. no hackey sack for you.

But But But....

I need a new hackey. I NEED one. And theres no hackey like a Coachella hacky.
