    I was gonna have a "maybe - it depends if they promise to fix stuff" choice too.

    Yeah, that third choice would've been good. But no, we're not going. My explanation was posted in Tom's poll that wasn't thread.

    In 2004-2009, I was in the I-will-go-to-Coachella-no-matter-what camp.

    For 2010, I was in the lineup-is-meh-I'm-getting-too-old-to-deal-with-crap-so-I'm-saving-my-money-for-ATP-but-I-miss-my-Coachella-friends camp.

    For 2011, I'm in the maybe camp, contingent on them promising to fix stuff, choice of lineup, and me having the time/money to make it happen.


    Edit: voting "yes", per Brad's instructions below.

    Are you sure you were at Coachella if you thought it was a fiasco?

    They're going to fix some things. That's a given. I think a yes (including maybe contingent on various reasons) and a no (absolutely not returning) are the black and white that I was going for.

    Realistically, all the gray area is "Yes".

    I feel like this is the very reason I'm not taking this years.... mishaps all that seriously.

    So a yes for me.

    You know, after all that I have opined and read and thought about this, I'm realizing that the strongest case for my return next year is probably (now that I have recovered) how bummed I currently am to be back.

    Too many people, yes. Too many young people, yes. Too much trash on the ground, yes. Too long of a line on Friday to get the wristband, yes.

    The music and fun I had trumps these and most other problems that did or could have happened. I don't want GV to slack on their duties, but I'm still hooked.

    When you have Aliases and voters with < 50 posts, anonymous are worth LESS.

    I sat this year out but I'll be returning next year. Not going sucks. Plain and simple. Hopefully I won't have the horror stories that most of you came back with, but I am 100% going next year.

    I have been going since 1999 and only missed 2003 due to a shitty ex. I will go next year and every year after. that however doesn't mean I am not hoping they manage to fix the problems there were this year.

    What a stupid poll. Why are the "depending on lineup" folks in the "yes" category? They could just as easily be in the "no" category... you know, depending on the lineup.

    Never answer a loaded question.

    If I may speak for Dorkfish, TomServo, the point of this poll is less to figure out who is actually going to be there next year and more to figure out who is so mad at the festival that they won't be returning regardless of how much they like who is playing, which is why it's completely polarized. Sorry to respond to your post this late but someone's voting and bumping this anyway so what the hell.
