who were they. Arcade Fire obviously are huge and were huge before the gig, so its not them, even though they put on a hell of a show.

Who else?

Tame Impala, and from what I saw of Warpaint them too. I really like Glasser musically, but she just didn't bring it live like I wanted her too. Everyone else I saw was already decently "big." Although Angus and Julia Stone had a much larger crowd than I expected.

Yeah Foals was great.
I didn't expect The Mojave to be that full

If you missed them, then you have no fucking clue what you missed.

Let's be honest...

The answer is Foster The People.

For better or for worse. :/

I wouldn't say beardyman simply because there were not that many people in the dome at the time, even though he was great. I would say Elbow

Freelance Whales had a really crowded set and already have a Starbucks commercial, so I'm going with them.

I'd put my money on Tame Impala, their upcoming shows are going to be selling out now thanks to that spectactular set.

Tame Impala performed an awesome, 12-minute long rendition of Half Full Glass of Wine, so I could see that impressing a lot of people. My girlfriend and I loved it.

No one has mentioned Chromeo yet, but their performance was amazing and everyone around me was having a great time dancing. I might be biased because the lead singer of one of my favorite bands (Vampire Weekend) was the guest star, but I was having a great time the whole set.

Has Sleigh Bells broken yet? If not, them. Also Two Door Cinema Club.

Some of you don't quite get this thread. Foster The people and Chromeo are both incredibly popular already. As are Sleigh Bells, but at least Fig wasn't sure about it.

The two bands that I noticed that seemed to spark the most curiosity from people who didn't know them and then win them over were The Joy Formidable and Glasser, easily

Actually I get it quite well.

Foster The People don't even have an album out, and have on single at the moment.

Any band that plays the Gobi has plenty of room to "breakout".

Foster The People will be able to to play a sunset slot on the Outdoor this time next year, if not bigger.
