I searched for a thread with this topic, but couldn't find one so decided to start one. What band or song would you most like to see when the sun started going down? I remember TV On the Radio playing as the sun went down two years ago and it kind of defined my experience. I'll start:

Minus The Bear

or

Tribe Callled Quest

These could definitely hit that sunset slot at the outdoor stage in 2011:

Broken Social Scene
Cut Copy

Yup. Time for a repeat. Josni in the afternoon last year just wasn't the same.

crombrenner
12-09-2010, 02:01 PM
The Decemberists
Sigur Ros
Godspeed You Black Emperor
Mogwai
Explosions In the Sky
Fleet Foxes
Beck

Any of these seven would be just peachy.

Kid Cudi would attract a massive 4/20-friendly crowd on the outdoor so I wanna see that during sunset

12-09-2010, 03:22 PM
Cut Copy
Broken Social Scene
Sufjan, Fleet Foxes, Animal Collective

Animal Collective during sunset at Lolla was transcendental, but I'm guessing they will have a later time slot?

And Belle & Sebastian would definitely be later...right?

Jonsi played at 6pm which I thought was perfect for his more upbeat style

Gil-Scott Heron (Yes I want a repeat. It was too epic)

I want a repeat too, I only saw the second half. His set was so perfect for sunset in the Gobi, probably the chillest crowd of the weekend too.



Also, agree with Bon Iver, PJ Harvey and Neil Young.

My first Coachella sunset experience, and god I could not ask for a better one.

I just remember looking behind me at the sunset and then looking forward at the great set I was seeing, and just thinking "wow".

That was when I really felt like I started my Coachella experience.

I think Passion Pit had a sunset slot this year. That set was the first great one i witnessed that weekend. Such good vibes. I would support them doing it again at some point

I still think Grizzly Bear and Passion Pit should've switched slots. Would've made everything so awesome

That's funny you say that, I had actually just lit up my first J of the day at the start of Passion Pit, and I remember the singer had everyone start jumping at one point in the set, and I was a little too baked for that, so I was the only one standing as all these bodies were flying around me haha.

I saw someone mention Four Tet, that would be rad. That XX VCR remix is amazing. I think Phantogram would be good too, especially http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IHvoz_oXOXA

Imo, they'd be much more perfect for early morning, right as the sun is rising. But sunset's next best thing...
