Madness vs. Battles
Madness vs Fatboy Slim

Kraftwerk vs. Flogging Molly
Portishead vs. Flogging Molly

Gogol Bordello vs. Justice
Roger Waters vs. Justice
Roger Waters vs. Gogol Bordello

If ANY of these conflicts happen, I will tweak. Also, if any of the conflict above DO occur, I will choose the first band listed in the said conflict.

Roger Waters and Justice will definately conflict. It's too bad, but i guess in the end, it all comes down to:

Howmany times do you get to see Dark Side of the Moon performed live in its entierty by a member of Floyd

It'll definatly depend on my mood.

hope there isn't a conflict for the Verve and the Raconteurs on Friday

I imagine there will be a lot of down-time on the main stage before Roger Waters, because of the big stage show. 40 minutes were scheduled for Radiohead and they needed 45. It took the crew an hour to set up for Air on the outdoor theater last year for no reason save incompetence, but that's another story. Anyway, I hope there's a Jarvis/Madonna-like period of downtime, with Justice in the tent during this time, so people can get their dance on.

Friday? Fatboy Slim playing against a good mainstage act like Verve, Raconteurs, or Breeders instead of Hack Johnson.

Saturday? Any conflict between any combination of Islands or St. Vincent or Akron/Family or Rilo Kiley. Anyone vs Portishead or Kraftwerk will lose, so hopefully that's when some of the lamer acts will play the other stages.

Sunday? The previously mentioned hypothetical Justice vs Roger Waters conflict, Justice vs Spiritualized, or anyone I want to see vs Metric.

am i the only one who thinks there could be a portishead vs kraftwerk conflict? i hope not

also justice vs waters vs spiritualized would suck really hard.

in fact, i'm bracing myself for having to miss justice, sadly.

I've heard that Paul Tollett himeself said that Kraftwerk is playing the main stage so that shouldnt be a problem

it has been announced that kraftwerk will play the main stage.

plus, I dont think GV would be stupid enough to put them on at the same time.

... maybe ACL or even V-fest would find a way to do it though...

I most fear some form of the following for each day:

Friday: Raconteurs/Animal Collective/Verve
Saturday: Portishead or Kraftwerk/Hot Chip
Sunday: Gogol Bordello/Spiritualized/Justice/MMJ/Roger Waters

Sunday could absolutely own my blood pressure.

Roger Waters vs. Gogol Bordello


these are mine too.


Roger Waters and Justice will definately conflict.

dude, dont say definitely like its a fact (especially if you cant spell the word right). I agree that it is very likely they conflict, but nothing is for sure till that schedule comes out.

rage patton
01-24-2008, 12:03 PM
I have a feeling either M.I.A. and/or Hot Chip will conflict with either Portishead and/or Kraftwerk. Thank god for that. I would rather watch Jack Johnson then see M.I.A. or Hot Chip.

rage patton
01-24-2008, 12:06 PM

The mainstage on Friday will look like this

Raconteurs --> Verve --> Jack Johnson

I really hope Fatboy Slim doesnt conflict with Raconteurs or Verve though, that would suck a lot. If he conflicts with Jack Johnson, that would be perfect. That is... as long as Madness doesnt conflict with Fatboy Slim. I have a feeling Madness are going to conflict with Raconteurs and/or The Verve though. Madness>everyone though, so it doesn't really matter.

JSam67
01-24-2008, 12:09 PM
Rage, you have been hyping Madness all over the place since the lineup dropped. I guess I need to check them out.

01-24-2008, 12:14 PM
Justice vs Waters vs Gogol...that will HAVE to be the worst over the entire weekend.

Verve vs Fatboy Slim would suck....but hell, the schedule is months away from being real, so i wont worry until then.

In 2006 I was spoiled by having no conflicts. Last year I missed at least 10 acts because of bad scheduling. (Bjork vs. Gogol, I actually ducked out of Bjork to join my Gypsy brothers and sisters) This year I'm accepting that conflicts are part of the Coachella experience. I just hope that no major sacrifices need to be made. My worst fear would be an M.I.A. vs. Portishead/Kraftwerk conflict.

[QUOTE=JSam67;429438]Friday: Raconteurs/Animal Collective/Verve/QUOTE]

Well now I see Animal Collective is on Saturday. And Man Man too. Saturday is shaping up to be really tough, and Sunday (with Man Man --> Sat and Les Savy Fav --> Fri) is really opening up a bunch of room on the poster...

Animal Collective, Battles, The National, and Fatboy Slim. They're all billed pretty high up, and if any of them conflict I'm gonna shit a brick.

Not worried about Saturday

Don't worry Josh...I heard both Battles and Gogol are moving to Saturday, so neither one of those should be an issu...

Uh Oh. ;)

this should be a no-brainer. You can see sasha/digweed alot more often than the legendary Kraftwerk.

Not funny man! I still kinda hate Vegoose for that.Seriously. They are two of the best reviewed live acts of 2007... yet they are put against each other?
Ugh. GV wouldnt be dumb enough to make that conflict. I hope.

Ugh. GV wouldnt be dumb enough to make that conflict. I hope.

I heard that same thing, Msparks. It went over so well at Vegoose that they decided to but them both on the same day at the same time.

But seriously, if Gogol conflicts with Holy Fuck or Autolux, I'm out again. Five minutes of gypsy party for me.

Friday is looking to be the worst day of conflicts for me. It's like AM/PM. Too much good stuff. My must sees looking like Adam Freeman, Scroobius Pip, Modeselektor, BATTLES!!, MUM!!, FATBOYSLIM!!, The Raconteurs. I also have The Bees, The National, Madness, The Breeders, and The Verve on my list. I think I'll have like three of four wanting to shoot myself kinda conflicts. Or a lot of running.

01-25-2008, 09:41 AM
well, this is the first year, that I can think of where it does not matter if I miss any of the main stage closers, so with that, going to supports, it would be a shame to miss kraftwerk, to see turbonegro...
i have never seen kraftwerk, and would like to, but TURBONEGRO. them and the verve, and without question, LOVE AND ROCKETS are why i am going.... so those three, take the precedence... i hate missing cool, word of mouth things, though, so hopefully, that won't happen.

Saturday is shaping up to be a ball of conflicts for me. There are so many dance acts, and I have no idea how they're all going to pan out, but for now, I think the big conflicts are:
Boys Noize vs. Calvin Harris vs. SebastiAn vs. Kavinsky vs. Surkin
M.I.A. vs. Hot Chip
Roger Waters vs. Justice (if their new live show is really good, this will be hard)
Battles vs. Jens Lekman
Dan Deacon vs. Architecture in Helsinki

Sasha & Digweed vs. Portishead/Kraftwerk (just have Hot Chip & M.I.A. close w/ sasha&digweed ending right before the headliners)

Dredg vs. Bonde do Role vs. Flogging Molly vs. Enter Shakari (hopefully Dredg & Enter Shakari will play the Mojave back-to-back early day, with bonde do role @ sunset, & flogging molly on Outdoor during Kraftwerk if you HAVE to conflict... flogging molly on main before portishead/kraftwerk would be awesome, but unlikely)

Fatboy Slim vs. Jack Johnson (just because tent will be packed)

Black Mountain vs. Deadmau5 (i'm hoping black mountain's on main before gogol bordello, love & rockets, and roger waters)

Spiritualized being moved to Saturday... grrr... i wish they'd finalize days & release stage assignments & set times...
