Wow, 12 step meetings at Coachella, who knew? SOBERCHELLA.COM
I'm a reasonable man, get off my case....
I do like it. I'm going to make a week long vacation out of it and hit Vegas mid-week! Christmas just got longer as far as i'm concerned.
No. That might change later... But no.
there needs to be a "meh" option

8 days of coachella ,could be epic ,that means we get to see twice the amount of bands if we go to both gigs and there will be no more conflicts ,im happy as long as the line up dosnt suffer because of it
It's fantasy to think that both weekends will have the same exact artists. Between the two weekends, I'd wager almost half of the artists will be different.

It would be epic if I go both weekends!
It's interesting to me that as the hours pass after the original announcement, people are becoming increasingly positive about the news. I think initially the percentages were like 75% against the double weekend format, and then 70%, and as of right now it's down to 66%.
This either means:
1) Negative people are more likely to answer polls quickly, or
2) Reaction is shifting as people have a chance to digest the information
3) the sample size is not large enough for the results to be statistically significant.
Ha, I thought about that Tom. But I figured that a 9% shift in a sample size of 94 was probably significant. But hey, I haven't taken a class in (or for that matter used) statistics in like 10 years, so please correct me if I'm wrong. And also remind me how to calculate it, because I sure wish I remembered.
This is pretty much the worst Coachella news I could have gotten. If the lineup is the same both weekends then it loses it's appeal by being repeatable. If the lineup is different then you risk picking the wrong weekend. And for those that travel to attend and are still financially recovering from 2011 this is very short notice to commit money again. I agree that it becomes commercialized and far less special to see a canned pre packaged series of acts a second time around.
Don't leave me hanging! I've spent all morning trying to remember my very rudimentary statistics. And failing miserably. Z score? Chi square?
