I prefered the 'chella set, which I was not expecting.
Why bad taste????
Preferred the Coachella set to the Paramount set? Man that kind of blows my mind. I thought a festival setting was the absolute worst place for that thing. The sound in the Mojave was terrible, and the visuals just didn't have anywhere near the same impact as they did in a dark theater.
I loved it. Could be because some asshole confiscated my pipe at the Paramount vs. smokin' j's freely at Coachella. Also, I don't like my electronic music as loud as my guitars, and found the audio levels to be satisfactory in that tent.
