So, what's not to like about the Do Lab stage? Lots, apparently.

The Do Lab has generated a lot of hate on the Coachella message boards
. "I don't want to hear fat dubstep in the background while I'm watching a band like Foals," said one commenter. Another called it an "anachronistic burning man nuisance."
But the most frequent complaint
concerns its sound bleed
into the other stages. Apparently the organizers heard their whining, as it's been moved from the center of the festivities to an area near the food courts.
In any case, no matter where you put it, the Do Lab is the best thing about Coachella. There's no other stage where you can get quite as wet or weird. And it's the only one where, rather than a passive relationship between performer and audience, the audience is an integral part
of the experience.
The fact is, metaphorically (if not geographically anymore), the Do Lab is the heart of Coachella. It's also the festival's best, non-judgmental space to go completely balls out, to music that is pretty darn good:
It's the coolest outdoor spot on the Coachella grounds - literally. Misters and water guns help you beat the heat while you dance your little behind off to thumping electronic music.
