I could care less but I'm sure the local communities are going to bitch (which I can't blame them) as to why no local chefs/ "foodies" weren't included

http://www.latimes.com/food/dailydis...#ixzz2wSu1CquYRoving dinner Outstanding in the Field will for the first time host an event at a music festival. A Coachella package that includes the dinner is now available for purchase online at coachella.com: $225 for dinner only, dinner with a three-day general-admission pass for $600; or dinner with a three-day VIP pass for $1,024. The dinner will include a cocktail from Goldie’s or Eveleigh, beer and wine, and four courses served family-style and cooked by Casey Lane (The Tasting Kitchen), Steve Samson (Sotto), Charlie Parker (Freddy Smalls), Jason Neroni (Superba Snack Bar), Rory Herrmann (Broad Museum Restaurant) and Clark Staub (Full of Life Flatbread).
"...For early morning and late-night eats, campers at the festival can snack on comfort food..." sounds like most of these restaurants are going to be outside the actual venue among campers where most of them barely saved enough to go to coachella let alone eat a $50 meal. And second, Most of your hipster foodie snobs are probably not camping and have a nice comfy rental someone. I see the size of this being greatly reduced next year
However, people in rentals (like my family) need to eat while at the festival and I love all the great options!
but hey, enjoy your foie gras ice cream with wasabi sea salt or whatever.
BUT FOOD IS AN ART!
I see this as staying competitive in the festival realm more than anything. Upon going to Outside Lands for the first time last year, I was ridiculously impressed by how good the food and alcohol was compared to Coachella...it wasn't even close, and I was somebody who promoted how good Coachella's food was for a festival. This and the craft beer garden at least take a solid step in the right direction.
The one thing I appreciate about Coachella compared to everybody else is that they clearly send people to other festivals, and improve where they are weak. For example, the new Sahara (which I was only even in for Prydz, but still) is clearly a response to the large scale stages at EDC and Ultra. Now they are trying to step up the food and beverage options to match Outside Lands. Tollett and co. are clearly just as competitive as they are art-minded, in my mind. And then you see people on Inforoo who are begging for the same simple changes to water, sound issues, shade, and organization every year...makes you appreciate that there is never a problem at Coachella that lasts for more than a year.
Mohawk Bend is really good and so is Crossroads. I've heard Sugarfish is really good too. I just can't see eating sushi at Coachella, but that's me.
i can only attest to a few..
Bar Ama - really good tex-mex. specialize in puffy tacos, which are a like chimichangas except tacos and much better. their homemade guacamole is badass.
Mexicali Taco Company - i've been here a few times and always thought it was so-so. basic tacos carne asada, carnitas, etc. a step up from taco truck food.
Mohawk Bend - great homemade pizzas! but everything i've tried has been good.
Attention giant dummies: Goldenvoice doesn't pay these places to be at the festival. These vendors PAY GOLDENVOICE to be at the festival. Nothing is being taken away from you. They are not putting foodie places in place at an extra cost, therefore sacrificing better acts. If anything, they're earning extra money from this IN ORDER to book better acts.
Jesus Christ. I weep for the future.
But hey, if this keeps people away from the stages so they can eat/drink/schmooze, I'm fine! More space for me at the stage! As long as I still get my crab fries!
