Portland music festival sues Coachella

Portland music festival sues Coachella

Dance music has been gracing Coachella's main stage more and more in recent years, especially since Calvin Harris and Kaskade both crushed their respective performances, not to mention Porter Robinson & Madeon last year performing the final Shelter sets. As die-hard fans get ready to gather together in the desert to celebrate music and art, the festival got hit up with a lawsuit. One snag, though: it's only the first weekend of Coachella getting streamed, not the second. The festival started on April 13, Friday and will end on April 22, 2018. And on paper, it is a little questionable that an event that takes place more than 1,000 miles away from Coachella could be affected by the event, but things are a little murkier than what is being displayed in numerous reported stories, leading to an outrage that isn't entirely informed.

In related news, insider Jonathan Friedland sold 972 shares of Netflix stock in a transaction dated Tuesday, January 16th. This number is based on a 1 to 5 scale where 1 indicates a Strong Buy recommendation while 5 represents a Strong Sell.

However, the issue at play is that Freeland was reportedly off the clock at the time of the incident, though Freeland's family allege the festival was aware that staff would be frequenting the area, and claim that their negligence contributed to her passing.

The firefighter was treated and released from Starr Hospital and has been cleared to return to active duty. No one was inside the building at the time of the fire and no injuries have been reported.

Vincent, Haim, Kali Uchis, Post Malone, SZA, and Vince Staples are among the artists who have agreed to have their sets streamed. The Oregon festival's lawyer claimed that the radius clause violates anti-trust and unfair competition laws among many other things.

"Radius clauses are common in the concert business where promoters take great risk and spend huge sums to produce marquee festivals, tours, and other shows". Do you think that Coachella's radius clause is unfair? Coachella's weekend two is next week.
