In response to yogafriend's comment:
It's not absolutely sold out, actually. You can still get the $2900.00 tkts. :P
Absurd, isn't it? I saw that Coachella had announced their lineup in an article last Friday, the day the ticket passes went on sale. In checking the actual website today, I saw that it was sold out.
The lineup doesn't have any particular character to it, as you all know by now. The MAIN (as in headliners) acts are: Outkast , Muse, and Arcade Fire. Are you still awake? :D
The only way you can see the lineup by day / weekend, is to look at the poster on the website, so if you're interested:
From what I can see of the lineup, and knowing the forum pretty well by now, the only band that anyone here would truly go out of their way to see, and would consider a special opportunity, is the Replacements.
I'll post a thread on the article I read later or tomorrow. It's an interesting take on the festival 'bubble' that by no means has burst, but may be slowly deflating (not that you'd know it when you see how fast the name brand festivals still sell out).
Interesting. I've been curious myself as to when the saturation point will be reached and breached.
I've been of the opinion that the real big festivals like Bonnaroo and Coachella are already there if not past...
...and the result has been the flourishing of much smaller, more regional festivals that are more narrowly targeted at certain fans or offer something different or more intimate (LIG). Indeed, some artist-centric festivals are doing just fine year-over-year by keeping things simple. (MoeDown, Camp Bisco)
Ironic too, as I was just talking to a buddy about Mountain Jam and Gathering of the Vibes last night. :P
One positive trend I've noticed is the increase in viable outdoor venues everywhere and the bigger names they seem to attract every year.
And No, it's never too early to talk about the summer concert season (esp. here in NE)...!
