Yes, it is huge magnet of wealthy hipster trash of the East coast variety; vulgar and yet so soft, the West coast just stupid and soft. They descend on PS resorts around me, flouncing around buying everything in the Ralphs while defecating in the parking lots. The fact that this festival of opulence and flat out fuck greed exists while a war has been going on for hoe many years is a testament to the younger generation and their supposed caring for the future. Also the guy that puts it on is a conservative fucktard.

Yes, went for 7 years in the 2000s until it became a huge corporate cash grab, catering to the lowest common denominator. Jumped the shark in 2008 when Prince and Roger Waters headlined. After that, they realized people were willing to drop coin just for the privilege and cachě of being able to say the went to Coachella, so there was no reason to pay millions of dollars for a headliner. Turned into a fashion show swarmed by various corporations pumping their brands.
Early days Coachella was a lot more about the music with headliners like Bjork, no top 40 artists. People were bitching about Madonna being given a 45 minute set in the smaller (circa 2006) Sahara dance tent, saying she's too pop and doesn't belong at Coachella. Those same people would have had a coronary if they had known Beyonce would headline 12 years later. It would have been unthinkable to even consider artists like that back then.

At least twice Rivers Cuomo said it may be the last time Weezer is invited back to Coachella. Though not as old as David Byrne who performed last year, their music is tired especially with the last cd filled with covers. It was like watching a Weezer tribute band tonight.
Jambinai was great. They're like a Korean version of Sigur Rós. I also enjoyed Mac DeMarco, Childish Gambino, J. Balvin and I'm listening to Tame Impala now who sound incredible.

Not giving Aphex Twin a proper headline in favor of that italian hoe Ariana Grande this year is just disgraceful. People may complain that Coachella was being mysoginistic and whatnot but Bjork was a proper female headliner for an allegedly alternative festival. Lady Gaga, Beyoncé and Ariana Grande are hardly real musicians.

R13, not everyone went for the whole weekend, back in the day, so the accommodation situation varied. It used to be a two day festival for which you could buy single day passes, then it became a three day festival (still allowing single day passes). 2010 is when they made it mandatory to buy a pass for all 3 days, so you had to buy the 3 day wristband.
A lot of the younger people would camp with a large group because camping passes were super cheap, but older people, wanting the creature comforts, would stay in one of the many local hotels or motels and drive in (which itself was a traffic nightmare). I would always stay in palm springs and drive in or take the Coachella shuttle.

I like Post and I thought people slagged his Coachella performance unfairly only because he was the act before Beyoncé and everyone was hating on him because they just wanted him off the stage. But I can see him going into more southern rock or folk like Uncle Kracker or Everlast.

Tame Impala is a great psychedelic band (perfect for outdoor festivals), but they haven’t released a new album since 2015 (4 YEARS ago). I discovered them in 2015 at Austin City Limits festival. They also played at London’s All Points East fest last year. They released a few new tracks but nothing freshly epic in the last almost half a decade. Unfortunately, it seems they are creatively stuck or out of ideas.

Highly recommend Couchellaing it next weekend. Will defo have some mimosas ready for the whole Yeezus thing next weekend. Kanye has been working with various gospel choirs and session musicians and it has potential to be very entertaining, one way or another.

I do not think Billie Ellish turns 18 until late this year. Her confidence and self possession are remarkable. She was in an amazing slot, had her set delayed and disrupted due to tech difficulties and more than held her own.
I even liked The Wallows who reminded me a bit of the very young Arctic Monkeys when they first played at Glasto as teens.

There were a lot of sound & tech issues all weekend. Before Billie Ellish and H.E.R. were some of the most glaring. Nikki had plenty of company.
I cannot understand the career of Ariana. She was recently in my city and much of the audience was elementary school kids and their parents, according to a co-worker her took her 8 year old son. But, the rumor was she was a replacement, either for Timberlake or for Kanye when they pulled out.

"People were bitching about Madonna being given a 45 minute set in the smaller (circa 2006) Sahara dance tent, saying she's too pop and doesn't belong at Coachella."
This is the one - and only - time I've gone to Coachella. I was somewhere around my mid 20's. Living in LA. My friend and I went to see Madonna, and it was the worst "set" or show I've ever seen. Couldn't see a thing in a packed clausterphobic tent, everyone tripping out, she was way late - apparently flew in on a helicopter and sang 3 songs, basically no good songs, and left. Ended up enjoying Scissor Sisters a lot more. But it wasn't my thing even then. Taking pills, boiling hot, uncomfortable and etc. If I didn't dig it then, I can't imagine being in the crowd its become now and I don't really care for the musicians anyway.

R197, That article is from 2016. Record companies have learned how to profit with streaming and are now making more money than ever. The profit made from the global sales of Drake, Ariana Grande and BTS in 2018 hadn't been seen since 2006, which was before iTunes was introduced, and long before streaming was a thing. That shows how much interest there is in music right now. I think a lot of it has to do with Trump. People want to escape the negativity and music is the best way to do that.

Weekend 1, yeah. But Weekend 2 is different.
The array and diversity of acts is unusual for a festival. Even the livestream has been a treat. I have discovered quite a few artists I had never heard of. Some I have enjoyed streaming, some I have even mentioned to friends. I sent one a NYT piece on Blood Orange. Super interesting guy with a voice like vintage velvet. I may even catch some of the new favs live shows in my city, it is peak touring season coming up.
This week in between, many acts are just hanging in CA and they are doing promo and late night tv and small shows if you live in the area. It is easy to be too cool for school and trash whatever younger people are into, but it can still be about the music, even from the East Coast. Even with all the tech issues there were some powerful performances.
Would still love to make it to Glasto one year, but this has been a lot of fun.

He knows how to pull strings. Probably takes notes from Charlie Sheen cause they both seem untouchable in Hollywood’s eyes. Charlie of course has daddy with his good reputation always bailing him out, but once the ol’ man dies, watch out #MeToo movement. Leo is as fake as the new tits he paid for his 19 year old supermodel girlfriend to get. But he’s an award winning actor so he knows how to win over gullible, naive, feeble minded girls over with what he’s so great at, his acting skills. He doesn’t have a sincere bone in his body. He’d be Chris Hansen’s bitch if he never made it big in Hollywood. If 22 is the OLDEST he’ll go imagine how old his youngest conquests have been.

Only one channel for Weekend 2 livestream:
Coachella Weekend Two is this weekend, and for the first time ever, Weekend Two will also stream live. It’s confirmed that headlining sets from Ariana Grande and Tame Impala will once again stream (no confirmation yet on Childish Gambino though), and there are several reports that Kanye West‘s “Sunday Service” will stream live at 9 AM Pacific (noon Eastern).
The Weekend Two livestream will be a bit different than Weekend One, as Billboard points out:
Starting Friday, YouTube will stream performances from the festival on a single YouTube channel (last weekend was streamed over three channels) with host Jason Bentley from KCRW as part of Goldenvoice’s first-year experiment with an artist-focused broadcast format that will feel more like a Summer Games broadcast than a live festival stream. Inspired by the athletes’ profiles and hometown video segments that air during Olympics, “Coachella Curated” follows Tollett across six continents as he visits the hometowns of international artists playing this year’s festival. “There’ve been a lot of artists we’ve had over the year that have really great stories,” he says, adding that they tend to get lost in media coverage and Instagram posts of SoCal’s largest cultural event. “Most people just see a name on the poster and don’t know what incredible lengths people will go for music.”

I always figured if Zuckerberg could blatantly ripoff another networking site and pass himself off as the king of social media so can somebody else but Facebook makes so much they can pretty much buy anyone else out at this point which is exactly what they did with Instagram. I just remember discovering all sorts of music through college rock, MySpace and Rodney on the Roq and it was just the perfect storm of new music discovery. By the time I went to the REAL Coachella in 04 I knew I was in for something truly beyond Godhead. Also 102? When I went it was 102 degrees in downtown Los Angeles alone. 102 would have been paradise.

Those suckers got up early at Coachella to hear this lame muzak. I guess Kanye is still asleep.

So the plan is the play covers of Kool & The Gang and Stevie Wonder until Ye decides to come out?

This is the train wreck we all knew it would be.

The people who heard the dress rehearsal definitely spoke of singing.
There are vids of Sunday Services on Youtube, the musicians and choirs he has worked with are really talented.
Eh, it is pleasant background music for drinking mimosas and coffee.
Ye is a control freak. He may not have slept last night, lol.
Knew we would get some exploitation of the 5 dancing/singing year old. Guess the pimping gene does not fall far from the tree.
It is still in the 70s there, could not ask for a prettier day.

There was some speculation that mics were not working earlier. Has been an issue off and on both weekends.
Thought I saw Kanye already there? Pink hair?

Ty Dolla $ign can sing.
I cannot look at that camera shot without wanting to throw something at the screen but the music tho.
And no creepy Hillsong perv preachers.
Bringing the black church to the whitest festival on polo grounds on Easter Sunday, love it.

Geez, all those overweight middle-aged people jumping up and down in the desert heat. I keep waiting for faintings and possible heart attacks. That said the heat's apparently not too bad at the moment.

And #Kanye just cried on camera in the arms of DMX and @KidCudi. If you know all three off their stories and battles with mental health you know how much of a moment this is.

Cudi brought out Kanye last night for a run through of KSG songs. Great set. Nice to see Kanye performing again and smiling.
And they brought it this morning. What a weekend!
The Cudi set is still on the livestream if you re-wind. Will be unavailable when the stream starts today. Not sure if that means when the Sunday Service re-plays at 3?

You can stream for free.
If you think Kanye has no talent you must not have watched.

Why oh why is Jaden Smith performing? He's probably the only performer there with such a silly and non-successful career in music. I just watched him perform the same exact song twice in a row with his dad. And yes, I realize Will Smith probably paid for the whole thing but still.
|by Anonymous||reply 290||04/21/2019|
I think you nailed why, R290. Watched by accident and he had Willow dancing for most the set.
Reason he had such an early time slot.
|by Anonymous||reply 291||04/21/2019|
Jesus Walks tho.
Some really emotional moments this morning.
DMX was the only thing close to preaching. The rest was just the music on Easter Sunday.
Anyone have a favorite set from Weekend 2 so far?
|by Anonymous||reply 292||04/21/2019|
For anyone wondering who the --token white guy-- as a friend put it, was during Sunday Service, it was Francis from Francis and the Lights.
They did a really genre blending collab with Kanye and Bon Iver.

The history of Coachella.
|by Anonymous||reply 294||04/21/2019|
It can be other things too, R294. Still.
In Central America, Lolla is streamed, same with R&L and Glasto in the UK. Coachella, for all its shortcomings, is what we have that is comparable in the US.
A lot of people really enjoyed the livestreams, esp Weekend 1, and were exposed to a lot of good, new to them music. The full sets in Yuma this weekend were dope. And the black church came to the polo fields on Easter Sunday. People at the very white brunch I attended were bopping and humming along, all the way on the East Coast. Music is powerful and it is fun and it brings people together. Music can still be what it is about. Even at Coachella.
Shout out to Blood Orange, discovered by many of us on this thread, thanks to Coachella.

So Coachella is pretty much one big shopping mall, with lots of advertising space?
You don't pay to go into a shopping mall, so why pay to go to Coachella if its making lots of corporate dosh from every company under the sun?

Not everyone has the same motives, R300. Many people watched and listened to the live stream over the 2 weekends. They were not posting that on social media, they were enjoying the music/performances.
Maybe you need to try a different crowd? Step back from social media a bit? Media in general?

[quote]Like Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd, [R150]?
Actually Pink Floyd were first called the Pink Floyd Sound, because their music was initially heavily blues oriented, based on the sound of Pink Anderson and Floyd Council, so not a great example tbh.
And really Led Zeppelin isn’t either — an oxymoron of course and obviously so.
You would have done better to cite a psychedelic band name like the Strawberry Alarm Clock.
