I very much enjoyed this set.

Though I must admit that I went a bit crazy during the first half.

Sorry for my crowd surfing, especially to the girl I nearly knocked out.

I guess that is a valid point.

The shit they played for the first 20 minutes sounded exactly the same. It was okay.

This shit is nothing special or entertaining. Why does everybody sweat Diplo's balls. This guy had more trainwrecks in his DJ set (opening for RJD2) over any other DJ I've ever heard. I watched some of the Lazers set on youtube & I could see it was talentless trash. Thanks youtube for saving precious time & energy for me.

You mjust have never heard Tiesto then.

I for one thought the set was fun. Was it awe inspiring? No, but did I dance my ass off? Hell Yes. Not to mention it was one of the only sets where I didn't have to continously hold people back so I didn't lose my place.

Major Lazer was H-E-A-V-Y. They made me feel like I was at a true digital dancehall party in Jamacia, minus the firearms.

@WHYTHELONGFACE La Roux was in the Gobi. Just like her competition Little Boots. Point lost.

After everything poeple had said about Major Lazer live, I was worried about their Coachella set. I was pleasantly surprised. KILLED it.

This was my second time seeing major lazer and they were 10x better at coachella. Pon De Floor was BY FAR the most overplayed track all weekend, but I got buck crazy everytime. Did anyone catch z-trip's pon de floor mash? WOW

FUCK THIS YOU GUYS ARE STUPID

no offense

Major Lazer fucking opened sick as always but they played fucking Warp and Satisfaction. FUCK THAT

As Diplo himself puts it, they brought the fucking Ham & Cheese.

I've seen Major Lazer 3 times and their best set was EDC 2009, when they brought out Santigold...

This set had HIGH potential but once you play Satisfaction, seriously you lose all credibility w/ me. Terrible ass set, and I talked to diplo via twitter about this, his only response was "you're mad at us cause we got all the teens jumping? Come see us at a smaller show for all the ragga"


Apparently you all in this thread like music that a 13 year old likes and Diplo himself confirmed it! Terrible Terrible Terrible! The coolest part of this set was the Chinese dragons they had, and me being half Chinese, i'm kind of ashamed they were on stage.

I am baffled by the amount of people that loved this set. I found my way to a decent spot and started dancing. I mean just give me a beat and I'll dance. The lighting was on point and those dragons on stage were fucking crazy, but I just couldn't get into this set. It was just so cheesy. I had to stop dancing and scanned the crowd while some shirtless frat bro kept yelling major lazer at me and trying to rub his fun sized snickers all up on me. I met eyes with some of the douchiest people in my life. I immediately felt embarassed for myself. I felt so terrible that even after seeing another act I had to change my clothes so I felt like a normal person when 2manydjs tore apart the Sahara.

I've seen Major Lazer 3 times and I understand where you are coming from, when I saw their first set in So Cal at EDC 09, there was almost NO ONE there, it was so awesome, then I saw them at Hard Haunted Mansion and now Coachella... in the very beginning some MAJOR doucher kept shouting pon de floor, pon de floor... (which is like my least fav. track from major lazer) and it was just annoying. Hopefully they don't come to LA for a while and they can get some new material and change things up, I've been on the Major Lazer band wagon before it really existed and Coachella was a disappointment for sure.

I saw them at Ultra and peeked in the tent at Coachella and it was the exact same thing, all the way down to them bringing people up on the stage. Eh.

I came in with high expectations because I saw them while rolling at Hard Haunted and had a blast. This time I was pretty sober, and left halfway through. It was just a bunch of loud noises, screaming insane MC, and bad smell from their smoke machine to me. My friends loved it though, I guess I just needed to get more fucked up beforehand.

I don't know how I feel about Skwerrit boy or however you spell it, they used to have another MC who I think was better before him.

Whatever though, Skwerrit boy's ladder jump/daggering is cool but I doubt they'll keep him forever

There's several major lazer iphone apps out there and most of them are just a collection of horns, whistles and just general annoying sounds that flood most of their tracks.

alright, what the fuck is all this? i had originally planned to see Major Lazer when the lineup first came out. then after reading over and over and over on this board that they were awful live, i decided to skip them. Now, all i read all over this stupid fucking thread is how good they were???

EDM so woeful I couldn't roll to it, that's rough.

Our night sounds much the same. I defaulted to the Sahara and left cracking up. The kid I met at hot chip was all about it. That is when I decided to part ways.

I went to this set against the advice of my peers since I was curious and nothing else during their slot caught my interest. Everyone is dancing and having a good time while I was physically putting effort into having fun. I didn't understand it. Then, it dawned on me... i don't like shitty music.

This board is filled with people that have incredible music knowledge. I trust their opinions.

I was so torn between MGMT, MAjor Lazer and Guetta, We started at MGMT' they played electric feel on the third track! perfect, then we boucned to Major lazer for a few, but the tent was wayyy to freaKIN HOT, i hated that godamn tent!! So we moves to the back of the guetta tent and let me tell ya! The hottest girls were there no doubt! A cold breeze and an insane lights show! Awesome 2 hours of partying

We were up up on the handicap section and had a great view. The party was great but I had a hard time getting into the music, even being extremely far from sober. The beat was just so inconsistent and they just kept stopping and starting and yelling MAJOR LAZER..

it was definitely entertaining though..

Bumpity bump. CRAZY

pon de tv amigos


Many of the videos from Diplo and Switch's reggae-addled dance project Major Lazer are crude cartoons that star a one-armed Jamaican commando named Major Lazer. Pretty soon, the cartoon Major Lazer will get a chance to enter your living room in something longer than a three-minute music video, as Diplo and Switch are getting their own show as a part of Cartoon Network's Adult Swim programming block.

Ferry Gouw, the person behind Major Lazer's album art, will serve as creative director on the show, and episodes will run 15 minutes. No start date has been set yet. Below, we've got some more images from the show. From the looks of it, the dub reggae visionary and legendary maniac Lee "Scratch" Perry will figure into things, as will Major Lazer hypeman/dancer Skerrit Bwoy. Also below, check out Major Lazer's animated video for "Percumajor".
