We're off to a late start this year as compared to 2006 and earlier.
For some reason, it feels too calm. I know it's still early in the game and I'm trying to grab all the rest I can.

When Underworld played the sahara in 2003...the tent was designed so the stage area was in the middle of the area....like centered against one of the length-wise walls....instead of being at the front.

Who are you arguing with Andrew? I never said the 06 tent wasn't an isolated situation. I know it was bigger due to Daft and Madonna. And I assumed long ago that without a major electronic headliner, the tent was going back to the old design.

very true, but i liked the space last year (for daft punk). in '04 and '05 i thought i was gonna die just trying to get in the tent at the end of the night. last year, going at the same time as the years before, my sister and i were able to get in with no problem and got a great spot.

i think the angle and the outside screens are a good idea in general.

05 tent was much bettter - I liked the height of it - plus you didn't have that barracade so far from the stage either (thanks Madonna)

apparently the 06 could hold more peeps though - so hopefully GV ain't lying about the smaller (slightly) attendance this year - still goin be packed from time to time though.

CORRECTION - Underworld headlined on the OUTDOOR THEATER STAGE, not the Main Stage - Main Stage headliners were Beck and Tool (and Rage and The Chemicals right before hand) - The Outdoor Theater was headlined by Underworld and Moby.

But yes Moaner blew everyone's head off.

In 1999 the Outdoor Theater was set up were the Sahara sits now.

From the pics, it appears the tents are more based on 2005's design. The Sahara won't be the low to the ground and long tent like it was last year....just more like a gigantic enclosed mojave tent instead. Which means it won't be angled either probably, which will probably help cut sound bleed.

Underworld 2003 was the best set-up-- there really wasn't a bad place to be in the entire tent--

Yeah I thought I wouldn't like it at first esp. when watching acts like FC Kahuna earlier in the day, but by Underworld time the set up worked amazingly - esp with UW's lights (3 laser projections, 2 on either end and one smack dab in the middle). You actually had a bit of room to dance without being light years away.

I noticed that - hopefully GV is staying with the cut back attendance though - because I see major over-spillage and sardine-like conditions with the same amount of people as last year.

Then again, there isn't a "Madonna or Daft Punk" there this year. (no disrespect Faithless, MSRTKRFT, Justice etc...)
