    Future Islands

    Washed Out... though the sound wasn't very good. Coachella seems to always have problems with certain types of bands/sounds.

    I think they do have some sort of shallow carpeting on the stage. Astroturf might be static prone.

    No EDM, Dub Step, Electronica or DJ stuff, or whatever the kids are calling it. Also no hip hop.
