Co-promoting is different than it being their own show, with them being in charge of everything, GV were playing more of an advisory role. The guy who is the producer of Coachella was onsite ahead of time, but had left a couple days before APW began the first year. There were some others from the GV offices working the weekend, but they weren't answering to their normal bosses.
Anything else, Bumblebore?

I'm not too worried about headliners. We've thrown around a lot of names as very likely, but last year everybody was talking about Coldplay, Foo Fighters, Bjork, etc., and then within 24 hours of the announcement/the announcement itself the names were suddenly Black Sabbath, the Black Keys, and Dre/Snoop. I'm going to trust the track record, and know that even if the headliners suck, the Mojave will be going off.
