As I was already sitting down, I stood up in spite of this stupid shit. There was nothing "epic" about it at all.

I thought this was kind of a cool idea at first but it ended up have no real purpose to it. Still interesting and I would like to see pictures.

What is "interesting" about making people sit down in the fucking EDM dance tent.

* A dubstep remix of Sandstorm would have been interesting.

reminds me of some nitwit DJ in 2008 making everyone sit down and then jump up for the drop in sandstorm.

yeah. sandstorm.

I was in the beer garden for a good chunk of this set and I must say that magnetic man is one of the most irritating fucking DJs I have ever heard. his aggro douchebag screaming at the crowd bit is intolerable. How can people dance to that shit

I heard the tent was half empty from some dude, and he said "Stupid Americans". He was right.

I left because their fucking sound sucked ass, they went on 20 minutes late AND they were going up against another gem in beardyman. Seemed like a no brainer. Chase & Status made up for it on Sunday and we Americans gave them the credit they were due

It's interesting because it's different. It also is a way to make everyone do the same thing, all together, at the same time which is always a fascinating phenomenon; much like how dropping a bass line or the chorus in a song will make everyone react.

Like I said, it really wasn't that cool, but having the entire rave tent sit down is certainly different than the norm so its at least somewhat interesting to me.

Zane Lowe. 2009.

wow i was gonna guess zane lowe, but clearly he was not on the 08 poster. god what a goofy moment that was.

people have been doing the 'sit down, jump up at the drop' shit for over a decade. nobody was ripping off zane lowe of all people..


I heard the tent was half empty from some dude, and he said "Stupid Americans". He was right.

i'm confused. was he talking about the act? cuz they're not american. or was he talking about the tent being half empty? cuz it wasn't. and it was the only act friday night that utilized all of the lighting schemes after dark.


I stayed standing and flipped them off.
why the fuck were you even there and not at Beardyman in the dome?

Buraka Som Sistema did this at Coachella in 2009, as well.

The Buraka one was epic though.

I was pumped for Magnetic Man but they didn't really deliver (at least to me). That was Benga doing the MC thing, which is a staple of DnB (which is really popular in England) so I'm sure he was trying to bring that to it.

The thing that really struck me about the set is that for whatever reason, there were a lot of dudes hugging during the set and sitting on each others' shoulders.

Benga was not the MC. It was Sgt. Pokes.

It's actually 3 irritating djs. And 2 of them individually are nowhere near as terrible.

How funny was it when the MC introduced Benga, then Skream, and forgot about Artwork. By far the best part of the set.

was planning to run and catch this but instead lazily stayed for beardyman after breakage played in the dome, apparently the best mistake I made this weekend

I kind of regret not staying for Beardyman longer but I was stoked to see some campsite buddies so we can all trek to Chemical Brothers afterwards. The sound finally kicked in when we were sitting down though, that was nice at least.
