Thread: Aphex on the main stage?

  1. #1

    Thumbs up Aphex on the main stage?

    aftere thinking about how Tiesto closed the night out last yr after the RHCP headlining spot;
    might there be a possibility that Aphex would play after JJ?

    not at all... Fatboy Slim would be the only act that could do it.

    the only way I could see him main stage is if he was right before roger waters, which would be sick as fuck

    Again with the Fatboy Slim stuff. This isn't 1997. Plus, he's billed under Aphex...what does that tell you?

    Aphex could do it for sure...

    can you imagine Aphex playing to nearly 60 thousand with all his bugged out tweaks? There is no mainsteam appeal to Aphex, and thats why he wont be on the mainstage, despite being an excellent add and huge amongst electronic music fans.

    I know that there is no chance of Aphex playing main. But if Aphex has no chance...Fatboy Slim has even less of a chance.

    What I'm trying to say is that there really isn't any chance of either of them playing main so why even speculate?

    Tiesto is just as much of a washed up hack as Fatboy, I don't see why it's not a possiblity.

    I can see Jack Johnson's set ending at 11pm with Aphex Twin closing in the Sahara like Daft Punk in 2006 because a bro with an acoustic guitar is a bit of an unusual way to end a night.

    Niether will Tiesto....I think that you believe that ones musical worth is based on how many people they can get to come see them.

    And by the way...Portishead won't be selling out any arenas either...but everyone seems to be stuck so far up their ass....

    Listen, I think Aphex has as much of a following as Portishead. Portishead is a headliner...I like Portishead, but by your logic they should be playing Sahara as well...

    I keep waiting to see Fatboy Slim on VH1 "Where Are They Now?"

    I think Portishead, Aphex, Jack Johnson would all make great subheadliners, but I cant stand that they JJ and Portishead are headlining Coachella. Ill take someone else instead. Im not saying Aphex is bad by any means, I just mean, he wont be playing the main stage...

    And I agree...but all this hooplah about Fatboy Slim playing the Main is rediculous...

    tiesto got the main stage because of his stage show, undeserved mass appeal, and massive ego.

    aphex twin will not be on the main stage. sorry.

    If you thought Bjork on the main stage made you feel like you were in space last year, Aphex is going to make you cry and give you bad dreams.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    The bad dreams I'll get from Aphex will be so worth it.

    No one can say where Aphex will be. My best guess says in the tent opposite Jack Johnson, but who knows? No one knows the day, time, area, or if Richard will even show up. Only Richard knows when he'll be there. I'm just gonna stand in the middle of the fields until I hear high pitched screaming and scraping noises and then I'll follow the sounds.
    I love music, and I hate vowels.

    you're 100% correct- but it's got nothing to do with ability to sell tickets- he just never does solo world tours.

    Tiesto already sold out arenas only DJ ever to do so actually. LA Sports Arena was sold out when he went a few weeks after Coachella last year. And Aphex Twin is not really a crowd pleaser. you and others may feel he is, but its really a small portion if he had a larger following like Tiesto does hed have more of a commerical success ie Radiohead.

    Fatboy slim could be in Main stage, He does have a mass appeal in a commercial sense. And really his live stuff isn't that bad he doesn't play Rockafeller Skank type music anymore its back to his roots of just dance music. I saw him last year and it was very very entertaining. Not life changin but does everythign have to be?

    Last year, the poster specified that Tiesto would be on the main stage.

    What's the history of electronic acts closing out the Main Stage?


    Aphex Twin will play in the tent directly opposite Jack Johnson. AT following JJ would be idiotic, imo.

    10/02 Beck - Stubb's
    10/03 The Preatures - Holy Mountain
    10/11 J Roddy Walston - Stubb's
    11/7,8,9 Fun Fun Fun - Auditorium Shores
    11/17 Blonde Redhead - The Mohawk
    11/23 Caribou, Jessy Lanza - The Mohawk
    11/26 FKA Twigs - The Parish
