Coachella Is So Popular, They’re Probably Expanding To The Fall

first_imgRegardless of your musical preferences, most everyone is familiar with Coachella. The annual event has become a mainstay in the festival circuit, attracting so many fans that they added a second weekend back in 2012, and haven’t looked back since. In fact, according to a new report, they’re looking forward at a third Coachella event to be held in the fall.According to the Phoenix Desert Sun, Coachella promoters Goldenvoice have an agreement with the city of Indio, CA to hold up to five events there, annually. Between the two Coachella weekends and Stagecoach Country Music Festival, there’s still room for two more events on the calendar. Those two events could be the fall counterparts to Coachella and Stagecoach, if all goes to plan.The report says that “significant progress” has been made on the additional events, with the city eager to expand its reputation as “The City of Festivals.” According to Indio mayor Glenn Miller, “It brings a different group into the community that wouldn’t be here in the summer heat, so it brings in money, business and jobs to the city.”Considering the estimated $1.4 million that each festival brings to the town, it seems quite reasonable to believe that more Coachellas are coming to Indio soon. Not to mention the Panorama Festival event that Goldenvoice is bringing to New York, NY. Good festival tidings are ahead.This year’s Coachella boasts a lineup with Guns N Roses, LCD Soundsystem and Calvin Harris at the top.[Via The Desert Sun]last_img read more

Fortune aiming to become Manchester United manager

first_img “Look, I [may] have to go out and learn somewhere else and become a manager. But the dream, the ultimate dream, is to come back and be the manager of Manchester United. From what I’ve been through, I’m going for the highest level.” While the issue of institutional racism has been thrust into the public consciousness in recent weeks, with critics pointing out just four of England’s 92 clubs are managed by a black man, Fortune wants to be given a role because of his qualities and not because of his race. “I want to be given the job because of my ability,” said the 43-year-old Fortune. “I want to always be judged because of my character and what I can bring to the team, not because of the colour of my skin. “When you look at the game, you see a lot of black players but why are there not many black managers? I don’t know what the reason is. I think if I go too deep into that it will block my way of thinking. read also:Legends’ Charity Match: Kanu lauds Petrolex, other sponsors for successful event “I like to think I am going to work as hard as I can, get all my qualifications, prepare myself and not let that barrier stop me.

After hanging up his boots after a career that started in Tottenham’s youth system before making a move to Mallorca and Atletico Madrid, he has earned his coaching badges but does not have any experience as a first-team manager. Undeterred, the 43-year-old wants the top job at Old Trafford one day as he identified his main ambition. “I thought about that question yesterday for some reason and my first thought was to become the manager of Manchester United,” he told the Manchester United podcast. “That’s my dream. Of course, I’m starting now with the Under-23s and I’m learning a lot and I want to learn as much as possible because management changes so much in the game today.Advertisementlast_img read more
