    Default Mojave Predictions

    For some reason I find myself in the Mojave tent for a good portion of the festival. Here's my prediction for Friday (totally wasting time at work, and probably wasting yours too, but why the fuck not?):

    Friday:

    2:10 pm - 3:00 pm -- Rogue Wave

    3:30 pm - 4:20 pm -- Datarock

    4:40 pm - 5:30 pm -- Cut Copy

    5:50 pm - 6:40 pm -- Midnight Juggernauts

    7:00 pm - 8:00 pm -- Goldfrapp

    8:50 pm - 9:50 pm -- Architecture in Helsinki

    10:10 pm - 11:10 pm -- Battles

    Good predictions other than Goldfrapp, who I think might possibly be too big for the tent.

    Swervedriver are definitely playing in the Mojave tent though, on whatever day they are playing. They said so on their myspace page.

    I don't know about Datarock and Goldfrapp, I'd like Datarock to be in Sahara and Golfrapp in the Outdoor maybe.

    Yeah, I think you might be right on the Goldfrapp prediction in the Outdoor Theater... that was the wild card in my list.

    Yeah, they made a big deal about the Goldfrapp add, I don't think they're gonna put them in a tent.

    If Battles close the Mojave, I will be pissed. That means they will likely be conflicting with Aphex Twin or Fatboy Slim. That would be a nightmare.

    Wow. Totally different Mojave. If so, I'll skip it, except for AIH.

    I wonder if this year the Sahara will be the new Mojave, based on the huge draw from LCD last year? Maybe the DJs will be in the Mojave and Cut Copy, Midnight Juggernauts, Datarock, VHS/Beta, Hot Chip, Does it offend you, Holy Fuck, Battles, etc., will be Sahara? Blasphemy, I know!

    Every single time you've discussed what artists you're excited to see and what conflicts would wreck your shit, I've agreed with you 100%.

    You and I have very similar tastes in music for this festival...with the exception that Madness not playing didn't send my colon into spasms.

    each year there is always one band that is booked in the mojave that should have been on the mainstage or outdoor theater because it was over packed...examples I can think of...peter bjorn and john, clap your hands say yeah, probably wolfmother as well...If datarock or goldfrapp are sent to the mojave they will fill that slot this year.

    I think arctic monkeys should have been in the mojave last year and PBJ on the mainstage.

    I've got bets on some combination (one or two if not all) of cut copy, midnight juggernauts and datarock in the sahara.

    I doubt midnight will be in there, that would kind of slow the momentum.

    Lily Allen was in the Mojave last year, so I think Kate Nash will be this year.

    I think its important to note that just because a band is smaller does not automatically mean they will be in the Mojave or Gobi. This especially has been true for "indie" bands on major labels or labels with big distribution in the past (Regina Spektor, Mika, The Walkmen, Silversun Pickups, Explosions in the Sky)

    A few of the more popular artists many might thing will be in the Mojavi but I can see being put on the main stage early on in the day are:

    Kate Nash
    MGMT
    Dredg
    Rogue Wave
    Autolux
