The presets said "see you at coachella" before their encore tonight.
I know it's not old enough to be considered classic yet, but I could go 10 years without hearing Latch.
Overall I'm kind of sick of Disclosure at this point.
I've gone both weekends three straight years and weekend two has been better every time. 2013 not so much but 2014 the distinction could not have been more prevalent. It stands to reason why acts...
I left Calvin Harris weekend 1 saying it was the worst set I've ever seen at the festival. His "performance" was bad enough but to have a crowd that size discourages me on what the future of...
I gave it a 4 pre-fest but I'm giving it a 3 now. I think the biggest reason is the lack of quality EDM acts after sunset. Darkside was the only one who I really got into unless you count the Knife...
They completely nailed this performance in every way they could have. Bravo, Arcade Fire.
Muse will definitely be better weekend 2. Their crowd was on the smaller side (idk about smaller than Blur) especially before Pharrell's crowd wandered over, but some of that is because people left...
They'd never even consider booking Maroon 5 or Imagine Dragons. Calvin Harris and Martin Garrix are as bad if not worse. What hurts even more is acts like Basement Jaxx and Kraftwerk are...
the Glitch Mob
the Knife (#1)
Arcade Fire (#1a)
If Muse does open with New Born I think that's the best choice
I'm a pretty big Elton John fan and I've seen him twice before. Never been to roo but I can tell you Elton wouldn't go over great as a coachella headliner. It's not McCartney or waters with a big...
I'm planning on making this my first Roo finally. I really wanted to go last year but I had to be in a friend's wedding that weekend. 2012 would have been awesome for Radiohead but I had already...
That would seem to make sense but coachella conflicts some alike acts usually. I remember thinking the DJ Shadow vs modeselektor conflict in 2012 made no sense. Last year the disclosure vs prydz...
I know I'm not presenting new information to anyone but I just saw moderat is playing moogfest in nc the week after weekend 2.
Not that my list is that much different than anyone else's but:
Outkast: set the excitement level of the festival this year
the Knife: Coachella is known for rare acts and they don't...
I'm seeing a lot of people predict that Arcade Fire will start at 10:30 or 10:35. In 2011 they started at 11:20 thereby getting an hour and forty minutes. I'm just wondering why they'd get a...
Gorillaz and dre played Sunday though. I doubt outkast would play unopposed on Friday. Not even Paul McCartney was unopposed.
I could be wrong but weren't the cure also unopposed on Sunday?
I get that but I have to assume if nin was in place of muse it would've sold out as well and it wouldn't seem so repetitive.
I really wanted moderat or trentemoller
Ha, that's true. I've gone every year since 09 and I've never seen a year where there wasn't massive complaining. Even in 2010 people complained.
To me it's a fine lineup, but simply replacing...
Please tell me you aren't so dumb to believe that was real. They did that "skit" where they ask eminem to stay for one more song both weekends.
Every festival Paul McCartney has done.
For British bands Glastonbury is bigger. And we could make an equally impressive list of bands who didn't tour when a member was injured.
Setlist.fm says daft punk played doin it right with animal...
i bought a ticket at the box office last year and there wasn't even a line, it was nowhere close to sold out.
and arctic monkeys are headlining this year. Could they headline coachella?
the white stripes would certainly headline, I just don't think bc u headline Glastonbury u r an automatic US headliner
You think going from Paranoid Android to Treefingers is not alienating? Really? Taking guitar-driven alt-rock and changing it to electronic rock with no guitars or drums on certain tracks,...
The comparison between Kid A and RAM:
-the record is more challenging then their previous work
-the record was meant to be a reinvention; a change from their previous sound
-the record is not...
Seems to me this album is going over a lot of people's heads. I think it's the Daft Punk version of Kid A: the idea being you aren't supposed to fall in love with it on the first listen. The...
Interesting he's throwing a couple of John songs in there. I don't remember him doing any John songs previously other than A Day in the Life (which is half his) --> Give Peace a Chance.
Sooo....Moderat was added to Electric Zoo the weekend after this. Is there any chance at Moderat at FYF, like in the SMD slot from last year?
Since Coachella rarely books metal and PT apparently loves Maiden I wonder if one of these new GV autumn fests could be a metal version of Stagecoach with Maiden headlining. Seems like a metal fest...
The best shirt I saw was weekend 2 at Hot Chip. Some guy was wearing a shirt that said "Daft Punk isn't coming"
If you read these boards, I salute you.
From weekend 2, chronological:
Simian Mobile Disco
My top 5 from both weekends:
Everybody I talked to who saw Alt-J loved it and they had a massive crowd. Maybe they are getting a bit big for "breakout" status but that'd be my vote.
How to Destroy Angels
Saturday Night Richie Hawtin vs New Order vs Sigur Ros vs Booka Shade vs Phoenix is rough
Snl and super bowl halftime performances are almost always bad. Even radiohead and McCartney were bad on snl. It shouldn't discourage anyone from seeing phoenix.
My favorite coachella joke on...
Charlie Watts talking about how he hates playing festivals...maybe part of the reason for no Coachella:
You could use this as evidence against any kind of music. I guarantee you the same crowd you describe above thinks Maroon 5 is the greatest band in the world. The "club kids" don't represent EDM...
Very true, a lot of good electronic music isn't dancy.
There's always pushback on new genres of music. The older generation didn't "get" the Beatles. Zeppelin was "just loud noise". The Pink...
I would love this.
Hopefully this does not affect the festival for you people going.
Van Halen sucks. Nobody wants to hear jokey 80s hair metal on the polo fields.
For the record Foo Fighters, No Doubt and Madonna never headlined Coachella.
I think I'm slowly starting to realize Dre/Snoop (in conjunction with the 2012 Sahara lineup) was the worst thing to ever happen to Coachella. I have to hear hologram jokes and hologram wishlists...
you mean ghost pirates
It's good, I'm def thinking of going. It doesn't seem amazingly deep for my tastes but enough to keep me busy. Wondering if Bjork and Paul will have la dates.
I would absolutely take rhcp over green day.
So no other acts playing...that's cool though. I might even prefer to take a nap sometime between 10-12 so I'm somewhat less tired come Monday. I would just be semi-disappointed if I didn't care...
I always try to do 1 or 2 big festivals in addition to Coachella; last year I did EDC and OSL. I have a Glastonbury ticket but considering the cost and PTO I would have to take I am definitely...
This is a good lineup...though not good enough to travel for considering coachella has most if the acts I'd want to see anyway. The only act I wish coachella got is the presets but we got a great...
