That's fucking awesome right there.
U2 is LiveNation and Coachella is AEG, which Livenation wouldn't be down for, I guess.
The Black Keys
Sounds like someone didn't go to Spicy Pie.
I'm going to have to veto the idea Fatboy Slim is still good. 2001 was magic. 2008 or 2009 was incredibly bland. He really hasn't returned to top form yet, it seems.
Those sound like some rad posts, actually. Can you link them?
Here's a very recent set of Solomun from BPM Mexico
Yuma tent in for a treat with that guy and Dixon likely back-to-back...
That's kind of it, though. Is GV just giving up on the Sahara tent and large swaths of good music, too? Is the Yuma, curated by Jason Bentley and whoever, pretty much it when it comes to finding...
My biggest problem is with the electronic lineup. Movement's phase 1 artists show they know what the fuck is up with good music. Seeing Skrillex and Calvin Harris and that ilk headlining dance music...
This is what Glastonbury got last year, well partially, anyway. The days of dreaming of something both as big and diverse...
Funny how they can sell out an entire weekend without a lineup, innit? Glastonbury does this, too. Coachella is popular enough that people will want to go, especially now people who want to show up...
When was the last time Underworld was booked for Coachella? 2003? There wasn't an Orbital or a Basement Jaxx or a Faithless (in some form) or a Leftfield or any old school live electronic act. Out...
The last time Coachella had a lineup that blew me away on reveal was 2008. There's been a lot of recycling bands that are not only playing at just about every other festival but have played multiple...
If this happens...anarchy lol
I'll go with this one.
I think the even better game would be predicting the second line because this year is a real head-scratcher in some regards.
Take it for what you will but I did hear the Yuma tent will be bigger this year. It would seem obvious since it was a new thing last year and they can learn from what worked and what didn't. I'm...
Perhaps it's time to entertain the idea Coachella has jumped the shark?
Coachella these days is closer to Woodstock 99 than Coachella 99.
I do think it'd be pretty hilarious if people go see Pharell, hoping for Daft Punk, and instead get Robin Thicke and maybe a Miley Cyrus or Beiber or something along those lines :)
Coachella's electronic offerings are strikingly similar to the Vegas bottle service crowd.
Snowbombing in Austria? April.
Glastonbury in England? Late June.
Sonar in Barcelona? June.
Fuji Rock in Japan? Late July.
Burning Man? Late August.
Laurent Garnier would be your guy. Of all the DJs on the bill, that guy plays in the US the least. He's popular amongst the old farts like me who have been into dance music since the 90s.
I've gone to so many of these events, am used to being a little let down by expectation when the lineup comes out but I really can't differentiate much of this Coachella from the past 3 or 4.
I'd put my money on "PT begged DP for something, anything" and they show up for a 15 min cameo at the end.
My exact thoughts. I'm pretty underwhelmed.
Can't put this on GV. Karl playing with a new band in Japan a few days before Coachella made it no question it wasn't going to happen. I'm actually pretty stoked for the bands they got but the...
Ravishing Rick Rude appears to be missing from the lineup.
wikileaks it, man. Bare it all for the world to see an be amazed at.
Charlene should connect with Mary Carey for tips on how to fundraise for an election.
No, not all of them. But looking at the big names up top kind of enrages the spirit, you know? I certainly would want some sort of protective barrier shield around Cut Chemist while the fiery...
Jeez I never even got to most parties till 11:30 back in my day.
Is it wrong to hope a meteor falls on the festival and only kills the artists?
Wow. I thought the Lakers took one in the pants last night but watching Miami's infighting while getting blown out to fall behind in the series was pretty bad. I want to see how LBJ specifically...
I went back and read all the Charlene entries, consecutively. Am marveled. A true work of art. Too many favorite passages to list. Bravo, please keep the posts coming!
Tiesto was on the main when 2ManyDJs was on. And the main was packing up like a motherfucker while I moved away to the Sahara tent.
He has done something recently. On a recent drive up to SF I heard his new radio show, called "Phazing", where he launched the first single, called "Phazing," on his new record label...also called...
I think we need to hear more from this one. Got a greatest hit?
They're still around. I found a mix of theirs on soundcloud and it's pretty fun.
The Martin Dawson stuff posted above really got the job done today...thx for posting.
Guys, I may or may not have tossed sobriety to the wind when I first made the thread. Bickering over names I threw out is irrelevant now. There have been some great house suggestions so let's just...
Adding Ian Pooley.
^^ that's one way of putting it. I'm on-board with that!
Not enough love for Grant Nelson. Come on people!
Best house podcast belongs to Grant. Great stuff...entire show archives available for download with tracklistings,...
Now THIS is an idea. Hey, they redid their site. Couldn't have been for naught, eh? :D
I actually wonder if Coachella gets a lot of their talent suggestions from Destructo himself, who both plays at Coachella but is HARD's promoter. That fiasco at the forum a few years back irritated...
Juno Reactor is one that immediately pops out to me on that list. You covered quite the gamut there.
rukes.com is his site. Loads to see there. Glad he got rid of the embedded lettering in the middle of his photos.
Always great pics, Rukes. You need to come stop by the ol snowboard sometime.
