FYF Twitter says Strokes show is not true.
Yeah, I'm a bit worried about that Warpaint crowd, just because in my experiences, any stage Tegan and Sara is playing tends to attract the worst people in the world (i.e. Blackberry-twiddling...
I'm thinking of doing that, but that's only because I've seen both Kanye and AM before. If AM is too packed in at that bottleneck, I'll walk back to Kanye.
Can't speak for Flume, but having seen...
I can't stop laughing at that tweet. I hope all those stupid fucks have to keep wearing it for the next month.
No comedy this year unfortunately. They replied to a FB post and said that it didn't work out with the venue change, but it'll be back next year.
Had that issue in 2012 when I realized months later that I stupidly put the wrong address. That was when the event was ticketed, so they sent me new ones easily, but since it's wristbands this year,...
I thought Courtney Barnett was great at Coachella.
Still, you're gonna miss several great acts no matter what you do that Sunday afternoon.
The songs off AM are decent live, but with only 75 minutes, I feel like they'll go light on the older material. Having seen Tegan and Sara a few times, their current tour is their worst, so I'll be...
No email yet for me either.
And if we're still discussing Blood Orange, go see him by all means possible. Haven't seen him in a few years (Coachella had a conflict) but I plan on fixing that here.
That's what I'm thinking. Probably gonna do Lykke Li because I have a feeling she'll stop touring well before Spoon does, who don't even have their new album out yet.
I knew Spoon vs. Lykke Li was probably inevitable, but still, fuck.
Minimal complaints for Friday and Saturday, though.
Ooof, this looks sad:
While this year selling out seemed inevitable, I think the quickness (less than a month, if I recall?) caught a lot of people off-guard, so I'm glad many of you got another chance after all without...
Okay fair enough. Mainly meant Genesis and his solo stuff.
Anything Phil Collins has ever touched.
I'm honestly pretty excited for Lewis Black, and also happy he'll be on the Friday, which is easily my emptiest day.
Night shows...yeah, I'll echo everyone else's thoughts. Skip. Was really hoping...
Cool, thanks. I've ridden the Metro before, just not that particular line, though I'm not sure my card is still lying around anywhere.
Ranger Dave says Barbary lineup tomorrow as well. Lauren Lapkus tweeted that she'll be on there.
I'm always sketchy about parking in the USC area for a number of reasons. Usually I'll suck up and pay a hefty parking fee (like for Shrine shows), but for two days, I might do the Metro. I've never...
New track is decent. I think everyone, including the band themselves, realizes they'll never recapture the greatness of the first two albums, but these first two fairly upbeat tracks are preferable...
For what it's worth, Pink Mountaintops are now once again listed on the site, so who fucking knows.
Wow, they actually churned out a non-terrible lineup for once. Not quite enough to get me there for the price, but I hope it continues moving in this direction.
TV on the Radio now confirmed in lineup video, even though they weren't listed with the original press release.
I'm kinda undecided about this. Not a bad lineup, but I've seen most of it.
I forgot that OK Go actually makes music to accompany their music videos. Probably because it's not very good.
Yeah, I love the shit out of the Arctic Monkeys, but even at fests here they're "headlining" this year, they're a 2nd line headliner and will be on the smaller of the two main stages at Lolla and...
Had car trouble the day of Sia's 2011 performance, so hopefully I can make this one, though the Spoon one is more important.
Same, I've got a few people on Twitter and such who've never been to a festival before and are just gonna camp out all day on the rail for The Strokes. I would tell them that kills the entire point...
I was thrilled to learn Owen Pallett was opening this show...until I saw that Spoon is opening down in SD.
A Thousand Shark's Teeth is really good. I thought All Things Will Unwind was still decent, just not as good as the previous two.
Looking forward to this.
I actually really enjoyed the Strokes at Coachella 2011. My only real complaint was the Kanye campers. I hate their last few albums as much as anyone else (actually, they have some die-hard defenders...
They weren't on each other's team.
Thread may be over 7 years old, but still as annoying a practice as ever. "I can't see, so I'm going to punish everyone else so they can't see! Point...
The only ones off the top of my head in the last 5 years (and I'm sure there's a couple more) are Disclosure, Sleigh Bells, and The Black Keys. Obviously Disclosure blew up over the last year, while...
The Rolling Stones
The Verve (probably not happening)
I can go solo to FYF but not to other festivals, and I think that's mainly cause I don't have to travel for FYF. Staying at my own house at night doesn't cost me a thing. And with other fests, I have...
I like The Strokes, but I think it would be extremely lame of Goldenvoice to book them as headliners for both festivals. Plus, after how awful his solo set was last month, Julian deserves a 5-year...
The same fucked up reality where the top name is Imagine Dragons.
The Philly lineup is awful, but at least there's 3-4 acts I care about on it. This is basically the KROQ Epicenter, plus John Mayer to attract a few more 14-year-old girls.
Whoa, I forgot what it was like to have an easy Front Gate experience.
Oh nice, great news for me since my paycheck is late this week. (Of course, assuming we can actually find the payment plan...)
Interpol will almost certainly play right beforehand, same stage.
It's just one sale, but it's stress-free. Last year, I don't think it sold out until the day of, and I'm not even sure it sold out at all in previous years. That said, it probably will this year. The...
Can't wait. Like The Strokes, they haven't released a good album for a decade, but I'm probably more excited for Interpol than The Strokes anyway.
You can find people on this forum to sell them to in January. I know that personally, I'm not sure where I'll be staying yet for next year so I'm not sure right now if I'll need a shuttle pass or...
Hell, this is the first time in 4 years they didn't book Simian Mobile Disco.
I'm okay with wristbands. I can't remember if FYF sent one or two tickets the last couple years, but keeping your ticket safe and non-crumpled at multi-day fests like Outside Lands is a pain.
The good news for you is that if you're hell-bent on weekend 1 (and honestly, wouldn't you rather go weekend 2 than not go at all?), they obviously put a cap on how many pre-sale passes were sold...
Their tour is well outside the radius clause, though. They're heavily rumored for Made In America LA.
Granted, Coachella's Facebook comments are also still idiocy like "Why would you sell passes before a lineup? What festival in the world does that?", but in this instance, their anger is justified.
I'm pretty upset with this. My phone got through the waiting room before any of my computer browsers did. You can't zoom out on the mobile site, so there was absolutely no way for me to see a payment...
I went in feeling confident and stress-free since I've done this so many times for various festivals. Turned out to be one of the more annoying Front Gate experiences I've had. Finally got through on...
