Because of shit like this:

2010 was the first year in Coachella history that festival promoters opted against making single day tickets available, forcing any attendees to purchase three day passes. Goldenvoice leader Paul Tollett stated the reason for this change was to enhance the experience for those who choose to attend all three days, citing lack of hotel rooms in the Indio area and increased traffic congestion for those coming down for just one day as other reasons. “We’re really trying to make it great for the fan,” Tollett said. “We understand it will affect some people who want to go for one day, but we have to protect the three-day people…”

Black Lips Are “Assholes”…Really?

Exclaim News
You can add the music festival All Tomorrow’s Parties to the list of “Things the Black Lips Have Been Kicked Out Of.” In a recent interview with the Village Voice [via Brooklyn Vegan], ATP organizer Barry Hogan said that “the Black Lips will never play again — they’re assholes. They broke into a chalet and started stealing stuff.”

Fellow organizer Deborah Kee Higgins agreed, stating: “We have a ‘No Assholes’ policy. You can play once because we don’t know you’re an asshole, but you can’t play twice.”

Harsh words, to be sure, but we’re guessing that the Atlanta punks aren’t losing any sleep over it. After all, the group had to flee the Indian police earlier this year after being accused of indecent exposure following a raucous gig in Chennai. Compared to the wrath of the Tamil authorities, the words of two foul-mouthed promoters probably don’t seem like such a big deal.

Black Lips don’t need ATP.

Libertines To Play Festivals ’10?

Pete Doherty has confirmed his plan to reform The Libertines to play UK festivals in 2010.

The Babyshambles frontman told NME.COM that he had already convinced former bandmates John Hassall [bass] and Gary Powell [drums] to reunite for gigs, and that as soon as Carl Barat agreed, dates would be finalised.

Barat had previously told NME.COM that he and Doherty had “left it as next year” in terms of Libertines plans.

“It’s going to happen [The Libertines playing festivals], you know,” Doherty said. “I spoke to John Hassall, he’s well up for it.” Referring to Powell, he added, “He said he would [play the shows].”

Yeah yeah whatever I’m in the US. Come here.
