We really need a strong DJ tallent. I really enjoyed Carl Cox last year. Oanfield was ok. Audio Bullies dissapointed me I really thought they were better. The mc was off his head.

Peaches would probably be in one of the other tents, but I doubt she'd ever play Coachella, sadly.

I think DJ Shadow is a pretty good bet. I've heard a live recording from The Outsider tour, and he didn't play too much new stuff, and when he did it was remixed like crazy.

I don't think Air will be in the Sahara tent, maybe the main stage at sunset like they did a few years ago. Underworld of course would be great, but I'm not too hopeful that will actually happen. Steve Lawler should be there; he's been blowing up lately. Also I think 2manyDJs are due for another performance. Ame, Switch, Girl Talk, Adam Beyer, Pascal FEOS, Tiefschwarz, Booka Shade, etc have all had pretty solid years so it would be nice to get a few of them...here's to being hopeful

Avalanches are rumored every year, but they'd be a fucking awesome choice every year, so I say go.

DJ Shadow would make sense, except no one bought the new record, and rightfully so.

Faithless is a very nice addition, but Tiesto and PvD??? Really? The possibility of two trance DJs headlining two of the nights is weak as hell! That doesn't match up to Chemical Brothers, Basement Jaxx, Daft Punk, Kraftwerk in the slightest bit. There's so many other DJs that are blowing up right now and aren't spinning Disneyland Trance either...uggh...I don't mind that Tiesto and PvD are there but hopefully they will not be filling the headlining spots.

I don't understand why either of those djs got booked, they play socal every other weekend. I am so tired of weak trance "superstar" DJs. Yes, I know trance is popular in los angeles, but bringing in 2 played out DJs is very disheartening.

01-22-2007, 06:54 AM

PVD & Tiesto?

Disgusting. Coachella must be overly worried about selling out the three days because that's the biggest sellout I've seen yet. Welcome to 10 years ago, coachella. Have fun watching Tiesto put his hands up in a jesus pose while you all shitt your pants in excitement.

I gotta jump on the WTF??? bandwagon with regard to Tiesto and PVD, and the dance act lineups in general. Pretty piss poor compared to last year. The "big" live electronic acts don't even grab me...Faithless...Air...BLAH.

The only thing that's looking tasty is Soulwax and Hawtin back to back on Sunday, and maybe DJ Shadow...there will be no DC/Coxie back to back powerhouse this year.

Whoever said you can see PVD, Tiesto, and Felix at ANY SoCal massive nailed it. Looks like GV finally gave in to the pressures of selling tickets.

3 days is looking like it watered the overall festival down, instead of adding value, especially if this "very limited" amount of single day tickets is true...

Faithless is this year's Daft Punk.

Gimme a break man...Insomnia??? That was TEN F-ING YEARS ago.

The new album just isn't good, plain and simple, they are nowhere NEAR Daft Punk in terms of the cultural impact of their music. One cheezy tune that was the gateway song for most people's Joakenfold addictions.

It's like Goldenvoice just gave in to the fact that most people are rolling in the dance tent and blew the proverbial budgetary wad on the usual suspects.

Booooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo oooooooo

(with the exception of Richie Hawtin...worth mentioning a second time...he will destroy)

I think that DJs like Tiesto and PVD are the bread and butter of Coachella in some respects. Go to any of the big massives in SoCal and you see the same several thousand tranceheads who will come out every damn time one of these guys spins in their area.

GV knows they can just stick them in the Sahara tent during the headlining slots and a certain guaranteed regular crowd of people will buy tickets, which provides them with a sort of built-in audience as a financial cushion.

Honestly, look at how many people were at Monster Massive a few months ago, despite the craptacular line up. I was there (don't ask) and I couldn't fucking move it was so overcrowded. There's a huge audience in the LA area for this stuff, and I can't say I entirely blame GV for thinking about the bottom line and getting themselves a piece of that pie.

It sucks, but it's true. The big tent has been dominated by this crap for years. Sometimes it's good during the day, but most of the time with a few exceptions (Kraftwerk) the dance tent at night is like a flashback to the late 90s.


whoa whoa whoa! can someone confirm that infected mushroom is on the lineup??? This alone redeems, pvd being there. if you have not seen them before, prepare to have your mind turned into puddy.

although infected mushroom did play EDC and Nocturnal Wonderland this year, I am expecting their set to be completely different from then. Their new album "Vicious Delicious" is supposed to be released in March. From the new songs that I have heard live, it seems to me that it is going to be very good. So hopefully they play a lot of new songs, and classics as well. If you have not seen them before, they are now touring with a live guitar player and if I'm not mistaken their new CD is supposed to have a drummer in some of the songs. So hopefully they step it up with a completely new set, with a new light show and visuals.

And as for Tiesto, I went to TJ to see him, and despite all of your hatred, I think pound for pound he's still got it. That is just my opinion, but I think Tiesto is much more talented than PvD who is so overplayed in southern cal.

I saw him @ the Bang Music Festival and he is good, I dont hate him, I will probably see some of his set in coachella, I am just saying that he is no big news around here, same for infected, but some poeple are saying they have a new show, so I will problay check them out too...

I confirmed this weeks ago, it's true. Skrillex has a big space ship production and doesn't want to compete with headliners.
