I went to one of the "one night only" showings of this film and boy was I disappointed. If you are looking for a sterile, unappealing documentary, check this out. I attended the 2004 and 2005 festival and this is nothing like that experience. The only redeeming parts of this film are the clips of a couple of good bands they included in the final cut. This film spent too much time dealing with stoned hippies trying to set up tents and not enough time with the bands that made the festival enjoyable. Overall this festival is nothing like this film, mainly because as the festival changes year to year, this film makes it all seem as though it is all one year, one event. I think when Goldenvoice decided to make a documentary they had a great idea, but I think they should have thought more carefully about the filmmaker who would be in charge. If you went to the festival,you should see this movie just for the few redeeming scenes and the nostalgia-you will appreciate it. If you did not attend the festival, do not waste your time with this "film" you will not enjoy it, and you will get the wrong impression of the festival.

Falls Short of ExpectationsReviewed byyoungurbanVote: 3/10
This movie shows the diversity of the festival. If you like different kinds of music unlike the guy above then you will like the movie. It gave an atmosphere that made you not want to leave. The concerts were mostly the last song of the artists set so you felt like you were right there. My favorite set was actually prodigy and I'm not even a prodigy fan. The energy that they brought was unbelievable. There were a lot of interesting interviews that show you all sides of the music industry. If your a person who goes to a festival to see one show then you would not like it, but I'm buying it as soon as it comes out and I suggest you see it before you judge it.
It certainly takes an acquired taste to see the breadth of opinion in this movie. One commenter has expressed that the movie, as a documentary, is one-sided and promotes only one view of the Coachella festival, which is simply inaccurate.
The Coachella film is primarily concerned with, not the benefits of going or not going to a concert, but the different experiences available to Coachella fans. The breadth of opinion lies, not in whether or not the ticket money is worth it, but in which bands one would prefer to see.
The case in point is the Oasis interview juxtaposed with another artist's interview (his name escapes me). The two interviews, zipped together, provide very different opinions of what a live musical experience is: Is it a political movement? Or is it an opiate? In my opinion, it's one of the best parts of the movie.
Based on the sheer variety of bands, anyone who complains about the musical experience at Coachella must have been simply too lazy to walk to another stage. And the film reflects the same cornucopia of genre: twee, noise, punk, pop, rap, avant-garde... you name it.
POINT: If, the last time someone asked what kind of music you like, you truthfully answered "every kind" or "all kinds," you owe it to yourself to enjoy this movie.
