While you were busy basking in the Coachella sun, the festival's fleet of custodians -- many of whom looked to be in their teens -- were running around the grounds, soaked in sweat, picking up your trash. We talked to a few, and not only do these guys get paid poorly, they get paid by the bag. When you see them next year, maybe consider buying them a water bottle before you throw yours on the ground. -Andrea Domanick

"Yolo" Fields

Upcoming Events

Someone put a big "Y" over the "P" in the "Polo" club sign this weekend. That pretty much summed up the vibe for those on their way to the Sahara tent. Let us take a moment of silent reflection and remember Coachella's better days. -Nate Jackson


It's one thing to doze off during the afternoon, but why fall asleep at Pharrell's set, where tons of people will be forced to step over you? If you're going to be that tired after a long day, why not head home? -Daniel Kohn

Saint Beck

As Arcade Fire closed down Coachella Sunday, they switched out week-one special guest Debbie Harry for Beck, who took the stage wearing a massive Pope Francis head. Win Butler christened him "Saint Beck," but the exercise was not very funny. Francis is universally beloved and Madonna (and plenty of others) have already taken on the Catholics. -Kai Flanders


Over the course of the weekend, a dozen people or more asked us for gum. Bring your own damn gum! -Daniel Kohn

Overcrowding at the Sahara tent and Outdoor Theater

These stages seem to have outgrown their allotted space. For the biggest acts -- like Empire of the Sun, or Pharrell -- unless you got there at least 30 minutes early, there's no way you were going to get a decent space. -Alejandra Loera
