Who is with me on this one? If Tiesto can close out the main stage last year after headliners Muse, then why not, right? This would be prefect. Please discuss.

Yeah, you have a valid point. They are Coachella vets. Not to mention that their current tour is pretty much larger than life. It would be fun. Although their set in 05 in the tent was life changing.

Its true though, it'd be way less crowded than you guys KNOW its gonna be in the tent. They are reaching a level of popularity where they are bringing in a new wave of fans from the younger ravers. Its going to be more packed than they've been before if they play the tent.

I'm all for this Tyles. The Chem's set on the main stage in 02 was great. Much much louder than the Sahara.

For me, it could go either way... saw them at the Hollywood Bowl this summer... pretty awesome. The Sahara would be cool with all the lights and atmosphere, but on the main stage, it would also make up for a) KOL playing there minutes before, and b) Tiesto closed out the main TWICE. Chems: Once in 2002. Kinda embarrassing. Just saying.

I know some here have RELIGIOUS FERVER and ginormous regard the HOLY TEMPLESHRINE that is the Sahara, but either way... IT'S JUST A FUCKING SUGGESTION. Take it down a notch.

I was at their set in 2002 after Bjork, and I agree it was fantastic! I'd have no problem with them playing the main stage.

Not saying I support them, but I do think this board does have grossly disproportionate idea of the popularity of KOL. I just read someone post in another Chemical Brothers thread that there will be more people in the Sahara Tent then at the main stage. Somehow, I don't buy that logic. On these boards, there was a poll about which was more popular, a bag of Dorritos or RHCP, with the bag winning... and at the show, what happened? There were a shit-ton of people checking out RHCP, and there was nice room for actual dancing in the Sahara for Justice's first live gig. Not complaining about that, but this board does tend to exaggerate things like that a bit.

On that note, I'm sure there is some cross-polination between KOL fans and Chems fans... not saying they will all come out and admit it, but... you know they exist, although I have to ask them why at the very least.

Yes, but aren't there a shit-ton of Jay-Z fans? And didn't deadmau5 end up being a clusterfuck at the Sahara during his set regardless?

This is why in the end, the best way to guarantee you have any room at all, an can even SEE the Chemical Brothers set, is to have them on the main stage late-night.

It worked for Tiesto quite nicely. :)

Vote for closing the Main Stage - hell their DJ set in 09 (opposite the Killers, who probably draw about the same as KOL) overflowed the Sahara, I can't imagine how much more packed it will be if they are 'playing' live.

it's only impossible to get into closer sahara sets if you approach from the near side of the tent. walk around the back and go in the other side.

nope, it was impossible to get in from anywhere for deadmau5, kinda glad, because the last half of jay-z was better than the mouse from what I heard.

They'll be in the Sahara. Kings of Leon will have their own massive lighting setup on main stage, and the Chems massive lighting setup will be in the Sahara. It simply wouldn't work logistics-wise to swap out the two light setups on main stage, both acts tour with hanging, actively moving light displays that would take hours to swap out.

Tiesto didn't bring such an elaborate lighting setup with him on tour which is why he could close main stage.

nope. After Fever Ray I went over to the Sahara, walked around to the far side of the tent, and slipped right in. Not right to the front of the crowd but in the middle-ish area it was easy.

They have more space leased out this year right? Logistically the Sahara could work if they're expanding the size of the tent.

I dont remember exactly what they said but ladytron commented on the saharas sound bleed as well! Coachella needs to comission artists to create art that is also a sound barrier and get rid of the do lab or move it to the campground or entrance area or something!

If I recall correctly, he said something along the lines of "that's an ice cream band right there." Not sure the EXACT meaning, but I can gather enough that he wasn't too found of it.

As for the Chems schedule, we shall see... it's still 85 days away, anything can happen. It's wishful thinking on my part, but then I also wanted Kraftwerk to close after Prince, but, well, no complaints, but yeah...

while i would usually say sahara, i really do hate it when that tent gets packed like sardines, and if that is going to be the case, id rather have them on the main stage. if theyre going up against KOL, then maybe that will take come of the crowds away, but i doubt it. and also, judging by the set time they said on their facebook, they might not be going against KOL like everybody assumes.

I understand where you're coming from, but at least those people want to be there. They want to see the Chemical Brothers in that atmosphere. Like Betao stated, I don't want a bunch of KOL brodigglers and other non-fans affecting the Chems' set with their lack of involvement.

Maybe for the last 1-2 songs. Didn't DW start at 11 and Tiesto at midnight? I don't remember hearing the bleed but I was pretty close to the stage at DW

The Tiesto bleedover at DW was fucking AWFUL! I suppose if we were closer to the front of the stage it would'nt have been as bad but hearing mediocre beats over Jack and Allison was not the experience I was looking for.

In other words, Chems in the Sahara please. I'm sure if they went up against KoL it would divide the crowd up pretty well.

What I hate with the tents is the entrances and big back open area always get logjammed with people who, for some reason, aren't really willing to commit to GETTING IN THE #@*%ING TENT. If you can get past the 10 feet outside and 10 feet inside the portals, there's usually a decent amount of space available in the middle to back half of the tent. You've just got to clear the entrances.

Nice, I was just about to post this video. I just think it would be a lot cooler to see the Chems in an open environment, and really, packed tents suck. Half the people watching the Chems in the Sahara will be busier trying to get in than dancing/enjoying.

Is it out of the question that the Chems close out the Outdoor Theater?

I'm trying to figure out if I have to leave Caifanes early or not for a decent spot. Tough to judge how big the crowd is going to be since I can see people leaving after KOL, people staying in the Sahara for Boys Noize, and people who want to see Robyn or Caifanes and then heading over to the main.

Great idea OP and I'm glad Paul T did them justice. I mean c'mon. They headlined Sahara in 09, would he really stick them back in there with all that Vintage Gear this year. I am somewhat disappointed though because the Boys Noize set is supposed to be something else this year.
