coachella was awesome this year and i must say it's a really well run festival. it's hot thought, so bring your own sun screen unless you want to burn.

that being said, this review is terrible. grow some balls and voice a real opinion about something. did you really not have a single negative thing to say about the festival?

oh yeah another reason the review sucks: you saw the killers and travis-djam. FAIL

sounded like a great festival, review was a little weak in it being bloated with cliche terms and useless information...doesn't anyone have anything original to say?

No mention of Theivery Corp drowning out Fleet Foxes set? That sounded like a very memorable moment.....2 great bands/artists at a festy dual....LOVE the pics, though! Its great to see the Flaming Lotus Girls' fiya serpent massive on display. I spent hours by that thing at Burning Man 06. Altho this is not on my festival menu, I always love reading reviews. Its like my 80s past mixed with the future mixed with Spin magazine. what a trip, and what days we live in!! WOW. I am glad things like this happen. I dont have to have massive interest to go to not appreciate what is happening these days, where all music matters and theres so many choices in America. In the 80s, this was just a European thing....My have we come a long way!

How many Coffee shops did they have set up for this post-rock fiasco?

.

The Cure look like they've been locked in Boy George's basement

.

Perry Ferrell looks like he helped Boy George lock The Cure in his basement

.

Remember the good old days when people could play a show without dancers and costumes and explosions and it would still be interesting because the music was actually GOOD?

Great work Dave! You must have lost 100 lbs based on all the different bands you shot huffing around in that heat!

One thing I hate and remember from Roo is that the Killers don't allow photos of their beautiful faces and will not let press into the pit for first three songs like almost every other band and especially bands that DON'T SUCK like the Killers. Anyone who likes the Killers would get along well with Dick Cheney.
