I'm surprised more people aren't more excited about her. I saw her live in San Fran a couple of months ago and I can't wait to see her again at coachella. Her music is really great and she puts so much of herself into each performance.16gdDitl0r8

I decided to check out Robyn after I heard her in the Röyksopp track "The Girl and The Robot," and it just wasn't for me.

i've been debating whether she is a must-see or not...i love her techno-y stuff more than the dance-y stuff. how is her live show? is it really dance-y like a madonna show? or is it more like watching an edm show like some of her collaborators like royksopp...

After watching this video, I still can't understand why she is anywhere near the Coachella lineup:

Robyn is very talented and definitely deserves to be on the lineup. She put out 3 albums this year for christs sake and shes an excellent performer, if its not for you then its not for you but don't act like she doesn't deserve to be on the lineup.

Ugghh....

You do realize that according to Wikipedia that song was released in 1997, meaning it is 13-14 years old, while her recent pop albums have been critically acclaimed and have made her huge in Europe. I'm not even a huge fan of Robyn and I highly doubt I'll be at her set, but posting that song is ignorant. She might even play it, but she has been hailed as one of the most creative forces in modern pop music. She definitely deserves to be at Coachella and will have a pretty large crowd.

Holy crap, that was Robyn who sang that Show Me Love song? I remember listening to it on my walkmen back in ze day.

She has an infectious energy when she's on stage. She's putting out 1000% and i couldn't help but get caught up in it (http://www.flickr.com/photos/ivankay/sets/72157624617431955/). Robyn and her band are tight. i'll be there.

I was just trolling. The song is catchy but I just won't admit it (wait, I just did).

I'm really excited to see her play a small venue near where I live; got a ticket the moment they went on sale... Hopefully she'll sign my album, as I've never had trouble meeting artists after the shows there. Only exception being that Janelle Monae ran away before anyone could talk to her.

After seeing these videos... I'm shocked by how good these shows look.

Thanks for the updates guys!

since her and A-Trak are performing on the same day maybe they'll perform this mix of the song together. that would be cool.

Finding final list of dates ROBYN is playing his summer, along with other Katy Perry openers has proven to be a challenge. Not sure who's opening Vancouver/Seattle/Kansas plus the Californian shows.

Robyn won't do Seattle because of Sasquatch and Janelle won't do Seattle/Vancouver because of Bruno Mars. One source has Marina & the Diamonds in Vancouver.

Isn't that technically a Kleerup song?

Sorry to nit-pick but that Kleerup album was amazing and deserves the credit.

They co-wrote and Kleerup produced it.

Certainly marketed as a Robyn song though (despite being on Keerup's album).

*Actually, my mistake, I guess that's the international cover. The Swedish version is this...

So yeah, It seems they share credit for that track.

I thoulght COS had her as expected, but not there when I just checked.

-played smaller headlining chicago date 6 months prior to festival
-not on Katy Perry Chicago show
-only doing one Katy show in LA on the Friday of the festival weekend!!!
-went down well at P4K in 2010, plus doing Chella/Sasquatch/Bonnaroo in 2011.

she was pretty damn awesome when i saw her live (but i partly blame her amazing backing band!)

i very much look forward to her set, so long as there are no conflicts. i am willing to sacrifice seeing her at coachella since i already saw her. but i won't miss: caifanes, lauryn hill, or YACHT (even though i saw them open for chem bros, bit it was just 5 songs)

The ONLY song it seems she plays which predates the eponymous album is "Show me Love" (and she seems to play that at every show)... which is a little disappointing for me, cause I'd like to just once see her do "Keep This Fire Burning"

Pretty much anyone I know who has seen her live and was either of the "not terribly into her" or "liked a couple songs" has been converted to full on fans. Her combination of energy and charisma on stage is not often matched.

I'm really excited to see her again. (This will be my fourth time). And particularly excited to see her for the first time since Body Talk Pt 3 dropped. Last time I saw her, the only song she did from that was Indestructible. Which is a fantastic song, but I really want to see Time Machine live.

Jesus Christ man... If that happens, I'd hope you'd make the right choice... Cut Copy are meh live at best. I mean they sound fine, but they bring nothing to the table... No personality...
