Anyone have any information on the topic?

I think he would be a solid (and feasible) addition, even though he's already played chella. I think he might be last-sahara-set status.

He said no already, and he's playing all of California and Ultra in Miami anyways.

he has no dates scheduled in CA, and no shows during Coachella...
Wouldn't be the first time an act denied playing and ended up signing on.

He's playing ETD Pop in San Francisco. Last I checked, San Francisco was in California.

DALY CITY, CA -- Nearly 60 people were arrested on drug-related charges late Saturday and early Sunday during a sting operation at a rave party at the Cow Palace in Daly City, the San Mateo County Narcotics Task Force announced today.

More than 115 police officers and support personnel from about 20 law enforcement agencies, including the task force and the Daly City Police Department, were involved in the undercover sting operation at the event, "etd.POP 2008," which was promoted as an electronic music festival.

Fifty-five adults and three juveniles were arrested on charges of sales of illegal narcotics or possession for sale of illegal narcotics, according to the San Mateo County Narcotics Task Force.

Authorities seized more than 1,000 Ecstasy tablets as well as Ketamine, marijuana, methamphetamine and over $5,000.

The task force reported that patrons at similar events have used "club drugs" such as Ecstasy, GHB, Ketamine and LSD.

Daly City police Capt. Mike Edwards said that that the promoters of the event as well as management of the Cow Palace were notified in advance about the sting operation.

"The Cow Palace and the promoters of these events are all aware of what's going to happen and are all supportive of our efforts," Edwards said.

All those arrested were booked into the San Mateo County jail and were scheduled to be arraigned at 1:30 p.m. today.

All the lights turned on about an hour into Tiesto's set. They had everyone out by 1:30, 3 hours before it was scheduled to end.

What's most fucked up is the artists knew about it. Just another reason why Tiesto is a massive d-bag.

yeah that's insane. i live in bay area and didn't hear about this. i wouldn't go see tiesto if it were free, though. i can't believe the promoters knew about it. fuck you skills, fuck you.

02-25-2009, 09:53 AM
yes i have multiple friends who went and described the situation. It was pretty fucked up from what I understand, and obviously there is no way that Tiesto didn't know about it. The show stopped during his set, they turned off the lights/music, and Tiesto proceeded to hand the mic over to an SFPD officer. The kids were going nuts; half of them probably thought it was part of the show. Boy were they wrong.

02-25-2009, 10:52 AM
damn, what a buzz killer. i don't think tiesto is really at fault, he just shows up and plays trance when he's told to, and stops playing trance when he's told not to.

you are in love with tiesto so this is no surprise that you are defending him, and as far as Deadmau5 at coachella i could care less. Personally i think he is overbooked in california anyways he has been on too many fliers for not being that great. Not saying he isn't a good DJ or Producer, but just given too much credit in my opinion.

Gribbz

I don't think trick loves tiesto.

I'm pretty sure I read someone's sig that said something like "Tiesto is the jack johnson of electronic music." -tricklovesthekids

Something along those lines.

You need to expand yours.

And I've seen Deadmau5 3 times the past year and wouldnt mind seeing him again at Coachella, but I would prefer him to be at EDC instead. I would much rather have Digitalism added to Coachella though.

Come on people, he's a DJ wearing a mask. Thats it.

i wouldn't doubt if he got added - but i don't think i'll see him because i've heard his entire set all ready. and i've never seen him live, its just that he's going to play his 10 hits or w/e that all sound exactly the same. WTF? chicken is a SICK song though i will admit.

exactly, only certain people can get away with spinning sets made entirely of the tracks that they have produced. I would say 2 of them are DJ Shadow and Daft punk but some others could do it too. Best song i have heard from Deadmau5 is Ghost N Stuff, but they do all sound alike.

just saw them? that shit was on halloween and guess what? Deadmau5 was at HARD too, so you could use the same argument for him. The only difference is that 2manydj's is way better.

I also just saw him at TAO, but I never said I wanted to see the mau5 at Coachella. In a earlier post i've stated I've seen him 3 times the past year(4 since TAO 07-08) so I dont need to see him there. Would love to see him at EDC though, 6 months is a long enough gap.

From an interview he gave about DJ's in general:

“It puts me to fucking sleep to be quite honest, I don’t really see the technical merit in playing two songs at the same speed together and it bores me to fucking tears and hopefully with all due respect to the dj type that will fucking go the way of the dinosaur id like them to dis-a-fucking-pear. Joel continued, its so middle man,they’re like fucking lawyers. You need them, but they’re fucking ****s. God bless them they’re my number one customer right so I’m not gonna go diss every fucking DJ. But to say you become this massive up on a podium performer by playing other peoples productions at the same speed as someone else’s productions and fading between the two of them, I don’t get it.”

I find this comment coming out of him to be very strange. I mean, it's not exactly as if he is "pushing" the boundaries of EDM in a totally new frontier. In fact, if anything, he is kind of moving backwards a little. Some of his tracks sound like they were produced during the heyday of progressive trance in the late 90's... not that I have a problem with that per se (I think that bring back true melodies into EDM is a good thing overall) but fuck, someone's got to spin the tunes for the masses.

What a tool.

Wow there is a really cool looking Deadmau5 iphone app that lets you remix deadmau5 songs. Don't have an iphone but that sort of thing sounds like my cup of tea.

Except I generally find deadmau5 to be kind boring, that bloop sound.... Give it a rest please.
