    Has anyone heard any update on this? Really curious to see if they expand some more this coming year. The proposal looks great and hoping to have more room for outdoor.

    They're going to expand to the east of the outdoor stage (towards Monroe St.). It might be this year, but mostly with in the next few years. They have a contract until 2025 with the city. The festival will keep growing. THey opened up 5acres last year already.

    Yeah i know their plans, but just wondering if anyone has passed by the polo fields to see any construction or if any word on adding stuff. They need to add more space for outdoor.

    Not really much they can do back there. The perimeter road that runs behind the stages from main to Sahara is needed for production use. Police have been using the area near the corner of Monroe for their staging/booking area, between outdoor and gobi is the rv lot for guests, bands, production along with all the broadcast trailers. Further down between gobi to Sahara is catering, water/beverage control, golf cart world. All that land is already in use.

    i heard this rumor too, but because of concern with interfering with migration habits of the california condors, they've decided to build down. Including a new underground DJ stage called 'deep space'. gonna be sick bro.

    I wish Google Maps had updated satellite imagery. Better yet, I wish there was a satellite image of the actual fest.

    so I work for a solar company down here in the valley and we plan to put solar panels on top of the newly built permanent bathroom / shower structure facilities that they have already built at certain places on the polo fields.
    Alsothey have popped up a lot of electrical outlets at the trees over by the food station / do lab so people can plug in their phones.

    They were in use by Sunday of weekend 1 last year. It was great because not many seemed to know about them.

    I think coachella needs to figure out a way to have green grass both weekends. Weekend one is so fucking crowded.

    I was comparing the 2014 venue map (image above) with the venue map currently in the Coachella App (tried to attach, came out too small, gave up) and the Rose Garden looks like it has been expanded. Other than that, do the grounds look any different to you all? Bigger maybe, or set up a little differently?

    Thanks!! Was this also discussed in another thread and if so, can you point me in that direction? I'd like to read any discussion.

    Also, the area between the Sahara and the Terrace looks different. I wonder if that's an actual change to the venue or just the map playing tricks on me.

    here is a quick overlay. I think the underlying problem is these maps aren't to scale. but the rose garden area and that corner area by the do lab do look slightly different.

    hopefully you can make some sense of that. all it is is the 2014 map with the background transparent placed over the new phone map. If i had to guess what changes might be made, it would be the do lab and yuma trading spots. Kinda makes sense with that comment that there will be straight access from the sahara to the yuma (forget where i read that).

    It does, thanks.

    Opening up that area between the Sahara and the Terrace is a smart move, in my opinion. That area can bottleneck pretty bad at times. It was really difficult during 2Chainz in 2013 trying to walk through that area.
