    Default 2011 official Indio Updates

    Indio (and surrounding area) residents, tell us whats going on in your neck of the woods right now!

    Are the polo fields still empty?
    Is there any art on the field?
    Can you still go near the fields?
    Are any of the stores or nearby shops doing anything special?
    Whats the weather look like?

    Give us some insight as to what the hell is going on in the promise land!

    i was actually inside the polo fields about a week ago and yeah it was still empty
    alot of stores have been putting up coachella banners and stuff like that with alot of giveaways
    the local radio stations have been playing coachella artists alot (shitty ones though)
    and the weather has been kinda warm, low 90's, but it's supposed to go back to the mid 80's by next week

    I dreamt a lot about it last night. Definitely some fencing going up. Caught a couple polo matches from closing weekend and got some good pics. Since they stopped using the North side of the fields for matches, weeds, shrubs, and small trees have begun to sprout between the Main and Outdoor stages. The area where Pure Filth is going to be is bigger than we thought, but we overlooked the oil refinery hovering over it.

    Heineken displays in a few stores are popping up too. I think it was a CVS I went into where I saw some posters and banners, or maybe it was a Rite-Aid. Can't remember....never looked up at the sign when I was walking in.

    I was looking at the 15 day forecast on Accuweather and it's currently showing temps of close to 100 for that weekend. It would be nice if it just stayed in the mid-80's.

    Here's one in which they are staging a real crowd, by sending in bus loads of people, in order to prepare for the upcoming events. It's be called "Operation Preclusterfuckchella," or OP for short.

    It's 52 right now where I live and I thought earlier, "Hmm, it's warm enough outside to take my jacket off!" I'm going to fucking melt in 2 weeks. Thank god for dry heat at least?

    I drive by the polo fields everyday on my way to work. What kind of updates were you interested in?

    As of today, no structures are visable. Also, the local AM/PM has a sweepstakes kiosk to win Coachella passes.

    I doubt you'll be able to see the mainstage, but that would be sweet. But definitely descriptions of anything you might think was note-worthy.

    The main stage doesn't start going up till the week of, or sometimes we start the weekend before. We have never put it up this early.
