Just checking out the 2009 Coachella Line-up. No Bowie, No Springsteen, No Radiohead, No Madonna besides Mccartney no really big names. I mean come on. The Killers to HEADLINE ? Their last time through Portland, they played the Roseland. I’m kind of blah on this year.
Here is the official 2009 Coachella Line-up and Poster – $269 for the 3 day ticket

One thing about Coachella that really gets to me is rip-off factor around the whole event.
I was looking through the camping fees and they are charging $600 to $800 to rent

12 x 10 foot tent for $500 for the 3 days. – If a hotel seems like a better option, think
again my friend, Stories of people booking all the nearby hotel rooms and then selling
the reservation for 5 x times markup are common.

Enough of the rant, on second thought, they do have some bands I am very interested in seeing live.
Their 2nd tier bands are all 1st rate. Who would not want to see Leonard Cohen live?
here are just a few bands that might make it worth the $$$ :
M Ward ( Portland Fave)
TV on the Radio
Band of Horses

Tell me what you think.
Does the quality of the 2nd tier bands make up for the gouging?
