Maybe you need to all stop buying into this flash-in-the-pan pitchfork hipster bullshit. What did you expect, really?

FIRST CLASS AT COACHELLA: There’s plenty of chatter about Radiohead being offered a percentage of gross receipts to convince them to play two shows at this year’s expanded, sold-out Coachella. The festival’s talent budget reportedly swelled to more than $30 million, which is just a fraction of the overhead to put on the massive event. Whether or not they received backend, weekend headliners Radiohead and Dr. Dre/Snoop Dogg reportedly scored $4 million paydays for the two shows, with $2 million apiece going to Friday co-headliners The Black Keys and Swedish House Mafia. Sources say Goldenvoice chief Paul Tollett sold 180,000 tickets for the two weekends at an average of $300 a pop, earning the company a whopping $54 million gross. Last year’s festival drew 75,000 per day for a then-record total of $24.9 million, up from 2010’s $21.7 million. (4/17p)

I would try to search what you said but I have to go out to dinner before Norah Jones tonight!
See you in NY ThomThom!
Spooks makes fun of me liking Death Grips as a way of revenge because I wouldn't let him blow me.
lol wait, everyones mad at dude talking about article, saying it's not true etc etc....dude posts link to article, people still mad? lolol
He posted a link to a rumors/gossip blog that doesn't back their statement up with any facts. Everyone still hates him and wants him dead regardless of whether this useless fact is true or not.
I wonder if spooks is like an evil cousin of kroqken. They both seem unable to discern fact from fiction, fantasy from reality.
I can believe the profit sharing model as both acts put their "brand" on the line if ticket sales flatlined. Led Zeppelin had 50,000 unsold tickets in 1979 when they played 2 consecuative Saturdays at Knebworth(booked as worldwide exclusive venue for that year).
Prince/McCartney/Eminem have each been rumoured to get well north of $3mil for festival appearances int he past couple years. DRE/RH have to do twice the the work to get a similar paycheck? Note that RH grossed $4.7mil for the pair of Mexico shows. RH also handcuffed themselves with the number of SoCal shows they could play. Plus they had to commit 9 months in advance.
Gross intake for GV must be north of $80mil between ticket sales, camping passes, shuttle passes, hotel packages, booze, concession, festival merch and parking.
