This thread has been very entertaining to read while Im at work... I think that it really comes down to your perspective of the human existence. Mainstream, underground, sustainable, commercial, whatever-the-fuck-you-think-it-is bullshit. It doesnt matter what it is, or what you think it is. It only matters if you have somehow gained personal knowledge and growth(good or bad) from the exposure. When I go to any festival, whether it be 1000 or 100,000 people, I always try to look for exposure to new ways of thinking, surviving, existing, etc. With Coachella, it has hit the mainstream media so hard that at this point that you forget the true nature behind the experience, with most people attending for the glory. Fuck that. Im voyaging out to the desert to have a spiritualized 3 days of dancing, exploring, and to gain as many different view-points as possible. Metaphorically (from a collegiate standpoint), the mind is like a library and perspectives the books; If its not open, and you have no information to site, your gonna have a pretty shitty paper. Maybe that was a little too much haha, but whatever. My point is that people use festivals like these as tools for growth, doesnt matter if its coachella or symb or whatever. If your there and part of the experience, you should find a way to stretch your mental/humanistic capacity to the fullest. This is how I try to have a good time where ever I go.
