    Default I'm calling BS on the lineup

    Here's my not-so-scientific proof:

    The quality of the pdf looks suspect. Could someone have fabricated and sent to the Desert Sun? That'd be a crazy hoax.

    Some of the order does not make any sense, or the order on the poster does not correspond that well with the set times. They have had some semblance of this in the past with a few exceptions.

    WTF is going on with Sunday night? Is Justice really going to be the only group playing at 11pm? That will be a total cluster. I really hope there aren't that many Justice fans, but I'm afraid there are many, and even 40% of Coachella rushing the Sahara would be not so hot.

    The person who posted the info is a lurker.

    Dani hasn't waken from her sleep yet to take it down.

    Is DJ Mehdi going to be tearing tickets at 2pm on Friday? What does that mean?

    Sandra Collins really has a higher billing than SebastiAn, Busy P, and Adam Freeland? Not because I'm disrespecting, because I think the former's music would be a more logical progression.

    In defense, the order of many other acts makes sense.

    Who's with me? Flame away.

    i'm with you ... although more out of a sick feeling that i may actually have some major conflicts and other huge chunks of time when there is nobody i really care about ... some bands seem to be playing WAY early when compared to their popularity ... and aphex twin third billing in the sahara???? yeah, some of it makes sense, but i am hoping this is not the final ...

    I agree with you on this. I thought it was real at first, but then I saw a few suspicious things, especially on Sunday:

    - Battles in the Gobi: Probably not happening, more likely to be Mojave or Outdoor
    - Midnight Juggernauts in the Sahara: There was a thread about this somewhere, and everyone decided they were not really Sahara material
    - Tegan and Sara before the Breeders
    - Swervedriver in the Mojave: I am pretty sure I heard Outdoor Stage
    - Spiritualized in the Mojave: I was thinking more Outdoor or Main Stage
    - The Sean Penns on Sunday
    - Stars and Shout Out Louds on the main stage: Probably not happening
    - The shutting down of stages during Roger Waters' set: Possible, but I have my doubts

    The set times could be partially correct, because it does flow nicely. If its a hoax, nice job.

    The problem is that you can't both complain that bands aren't playing in order of popularity, and then bitch that all the popular bands are playing at the same time. They SHOULD try to spread them out some, and it looks like they did that. Speaking of clusters, how busy is the Sahara tent going to be with Fatboy Slim against Jack Johnson?

    Why doesn't Fatboy Slim have an end time? It usually will say something like "10:45 -End" It doesn't even say that/ Hmmmmmmmm.

    Edit - -now that I look, none of the closers have an end time

    Swervedriver's official MySpace says Mojave at 5:00pm, so the information is apparently accurate. Additionally, Spiritualized posted a MySpace bulletin saying 6:00pm in Mojave on the Sunday. Those two seem to be on the money, and will provide me with one of the few opportunities to spend two consecutive sets in the same place.

    I'd love to believe the lineup isn't correct, because I've got a couple of disappointing conflicts. But it looks like that might be the real deal.

    Fatboy's end time isn't posted because he won't finish, at least voluntarily. He'll just keep looping the lyric from Star 69 until someone finally cuts the power.

    Well, since they are billed right below the Breeders, it's not that big a stretch.

    EDIT- Ooops, you meant after, not before. Still, that's a minor one.

    Spiritualized in the Mojave was one of the first set times that was "confirmed"...and at "around 6pm". And I'm pretty sure Swervedriver posted that 5pm time somewhere as well. Actually, I think everything in the "confirmed set times" thread matches this.

    So "everybody" decided MJ wasn't Sahara material, but the 50 of us who have been saying stage closures for Roger Waters don't count for anything?

    (Oh, and I called it for L+R in the Outdoor vs MMJ too.)

    What sold me was that the set times accurately reflected the shifting that went down with the Coachooser yesterday (Institubes on Sat & Sun, DIOYY on Sun)... Anyways...

    Yes, but if someone wanted to fake it, they'd use the most up to date information from the Coachooser, no?

    I hope I'm wrong, but I'm just sayin'

    Cool, glad you cleared that up for me. I am not complaining if this is the real line-up anyhow. I got maybe one or two conflicts at most, I don't care what goes on Sunday and none of my suspicious set times are for bands I will even be checking out (Aside from Battles, who I still figured were bigger than Gobi, but whatever... More intimate of a set.)

    I think you should refuse to believe it's real until every band throughout the weekend has played at the exact time listed on the sheets. Just go from stage to stage checking your watch.

    That would be funny.

    But yeah... with all the misinformation that gets spewed all over the place, it's easy to understand skepticism.

    I would like to point out a couple of things:

    Yes, Portishead and Kraftwerk only get a hour but so did Daft Punk. And it only took them a hour to kill everyone.

    In the history of the festival, I don't think anyone outside of a a few early day DJs, has ever gotten a 2 and a half hour scheduled time. Roger will be giving us something very special me thinks...

    I'm sure GV goes through several drafts of the schedule...could be an early draft that got leaked.

    And ya, I'm not convinced until coachella.com is updated or PF chimes in.

    If that's true, I love that Paul T is lurking here somewhere and waking up people to get busy. Paul, let the girl get some dang sleep for crying out loud.
