but then again, it's their weekend that has the rapes, the drunken horse riding, etc.. and Coachella gets blamed cuz we're all a bunch of hippie pot-smokers.
and don't get me started on how disturbing it is that the Do Lab is turned into a water playground for the little kids to play in.
Although I do agree that it does create a lot of trash on the ground, on the other hand that trash does get picked up by volunteers and clean up crews.
Personally I would rather be allowed to have my drink anywhere on the festival grounds.
More shade would really be nice. That and I could go for a set of bleachers all the way in the back facing the main stage. I usually prefer to watch the headliners from back by whatever art installation is back where Gateway was last year and that giant bird thing was in 2010. The bleachers over by the Mojave and Sahara have been a godsend to me although they're kinda filthy due to Sahara scumbags hanging out there all day, but I love being able to sit back away from everyone and just watch the stages in full view.
Look, if a parent wants to get their 5 year old drunk, who is Stagecoach to stop them? Practically anti-American.
Just out of curiosity, what were the biggest rumors that people thought had a somewhat decent chance of being true that ended up being bullshit? Besides the usual Daft Punk etc.
Riot Fest: 9/11-13 @ Douglas Park
Matt Nathanson: 10/19 @ Majestic Theatre
Doesn't Stagecoach have different liquor laws because there is 20-25,000 fewer bodies onsite per day, curfew is 2 hours earlier and they use have as many stages?
Are drugs present, different options or non-existent at Stagecoach?
Coachella 07 (the introduction), 08 (the bands), 09 (the documentary), 10 (the people i came with), 11 (the relationship test... we passed), 12 (whatever the weather, Dirty Epic forever), 13 (the year of the troll)

The beer gardens are great as-is. I like to visit but I wouldn't want to live there.
Robin just informed me that Live 105 in SF is trying to rumor David Bowie. Quick, someone put it up on songkick and see how quickly it takes Rolling Stone to refer to it as a legit rumor.
the end of our journey
Maybe next year.The crew said they receive enough ticket requests to support more than four weekends of Coachella, but they have no plans to expand beyond two. Holy grail headliners for them still include David Bowie, Talking Heads and The Smiths (Fold would personally love to have Iron Maiden, as well). Tollett, Fold and Paige were enthusiastic about newcomers Father John Misty, who performed earlier in the afternoon. Paige said the wristband technology that has replaced paper tickets in recent years should eventually be able to work to purchase merch and beer.
