Coachella 2014's Worst Moments, Weekend Two

Photo by Timothy Norris

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
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

 this is seriously soooo lame. You just sound butthurt and want haters who didn't make it to agree with you. You must be so fun at parties.

Don't hate.. This is distasteful reading. It's still a better festival then anything ULTRA could ever hope to achieve in 10yrs.. Miami could learn something from festivals like this..

I've read many such pieces where the writers are paid to attend events just to find things they can bitch about and make clickbait lists for all the haters who missed out, and this has to be one of the lamest.
