Coachella founder opens up about Kanye, BLACKPINK, global music scene how to get rid of black ants in house naturally

Coachella, the multimillion-dollar-grossing festival in the california desert, anticipated a major change in music in 1999 when it how to get rid of black ants in house naturally gambled that regional festivalgoers would come to indio to hear how to get rid of black ants in house naturally all kinds of indie genres instead of just what was how to get rid of black ants in house naturally being played on the radio.

Last month, coachella founder paul tollett rolled the dice again with a how to get rid of black ants in house naturally belief that the hundreds of thousands of people now coming how to get rid of black ants in house naturally to coachella from around the world would continue trekking to how to get rid of black ants in house naturally indio for music that wasn’t primarily from the united states.

Tollett, president and CEO of the los angeles-based goldenvoice company, traveled the globe last year seeking international artists that could how to get rid of black ants in house naturally keep coachella ahead of the festival competition. He booked acts for april’s coachella from every continent except antarctica, including BLACKPINK from south korea, nina kraviz from moscow, christine and the queens from france, mr eazi from nigeria, J balvin from colombia, calypso rose from trinidad and tobago, and tame impala from australia.

Less than the monetization, I think it’s just getting the story of the artist out there. When you see a festival poster, it’s a blur of 150 names and sometimes you don’t know one from the next and you start seeing how to get rid of black ants in house naturally a piece from that artist’s home country, it puts it in perspective what they’ve had to do to get to where they are.

Twenty years ago you had this concept of taking different how to get rid of black ants in house naturally kinds of music, from raves, hip-hop and punk, and seeing if their individual audiences could create one mass how to get rid of black ants in house naturally audience. Do you see yourself doing the same thing with international how to get rid of black ants in house naturally music – creating a new audience with artists like in russia, who aren’t making a whole lot of money in america, coming together with people from africa?

I don’t think it’s all money. I just think the walls are down and anyone, no matter what country you’re in, can play shows and come to coachella. With the way streaming works now, when you’re listening to music, you don’t know where it’s from all the time. So, we’re just trying to make it easier for those artists how to get rid of black ants in house naturally that are invited here.

No. It’s just that every topic, you keep bringing up monetization and that wasn’t the motivation. For instance, nigeria, we feel that it takes a lot for an artist how to get rid of black ants in house naturally to come over here – so many hours. It’s a sacrifice for someone who is an arena or how to get rid of black ants in house naturally a stadium act to come here for the first time how to get rid of black ants in house naturally and play a smaller stage. The last few years, people have even dropped out after they were advertised because how to get rid of black ants in house naturally it got difficult, to get on the plane and everything.

Yeah, getting visas. We just felt, we have to do our part. If we’re going to book someone from africa, after flying all the way over here and giving all how to get rid of black ants in house naturally that effort, we can’t just bury them (in a bad time slot) at the show. We have to give them a voice so people here how to get rid of black ants in house naturally can learn about them.

Thank you. I don’t know if you noticed, but all the hedges were taken off. If you’re standing at the main stage, and you look out towards the "spectra," which is the rainbow tower, that used to be all hedges. All of those are gone. Three hundred feet – almost a football field. Before, from the main stage to sahara, you had to funnel through. And coming out of it, going to the second stage, you had to funnel through the mouth.

Yeah. We just revolutionized. We took that indio central market and put that far how to get rid of black ants in house naturally back and moved up sonora, gobi and mojave all in a row. Three tents in a row. It made it seem like you could bounce back and how to get rid of black ants in house naturally forth. I think for us, it was our best year of public assemblage operations.

I don’t know, but he comes up with ideas more than most people. I thought this idea was really great: a hill the people could sit on, and a hill the artist is on, and then people all around it. It had a look I had never seen, a feeling I had never (felt). It sort of reminded me of the vibe I felt how to get rid of black ants in house naturally when I first saw the “wattstax” movie (documenting the 1972 watts summer festival featuring performances by stax how to get rid of black ants in house naturally records artists, including isaac hayes and the staples singers, plus richard pryor, jesse jackson and others). There’s something innocent about daytime. And what’s interesting is, none of us were in a hurry because the show how to get rid of black ants in house naturally (coachella) didn’t start for a few more hours. No one was leaving to go back to L.A., so it was kind of a chill moment. That might play into it.

I saw it as a continuation of the beyoncé tribute how to get rid of black ants in house naturally to the HBCU (historic black colleges and universities) halftime shows. I thought it was a nice continuation of what beyoncé how to get rid of black ants in house naturally did and I was wondering if there was a conscious how to get rid of black ants in house naturally effort to connect those two?

The hill wasn’t started until tuesday morning with the dirt and grass. It seemed that day, everything he was talking about was so great. A handful of us were standing there. After we walked away, we were like, "wow!" he said six or seven things and they were all how to get rid of black ants in house naturally super great.
