Thread: Length of Sets

    Default Length of Sets

    How long are most sets? The afternoon sets? Evening sets? Headliner sets?

    Headliners usually get anywhere from 90-120 min. Most other acts get 45-60. It could be different though this year. With less bands playing on the days, would mean less overlap, so much like Bonnaroo there may be a little bit longer sets this year.

    earlier sets are usually about 30 to 40 mins. later bands get about an hour. maybe a little more than that.

    Earlier sets have never been that short (give me proof of a 30 minute set)...... Sets are pretty much 45 - 50 mins and increase depending on the stage and time. Headliners this year I think will get a solid 90 mins, but we'll see how it pans out with less bands.

    Headliners... about 1030 not much later than that to get a full set in.

    Unless you're Madonna.

    I checked my booklets and mostly it was 10:40.but that is the main stage;there are headliners on all stages and tents and some of them are later. Once in a while (nine inch nails 2005--9pm, Radio head 2004-9pm,Depeche Mode 2006-9:30pm) it is earlier and when Bjork was on in 2002 she played before the Chemical Brothers. I guess it also matters who is your headliner..some of the best sets are at sundown!

    Nice, thank you for the information. I thought they would be shorter but I am pretty excited that they play close to an hour even if they don't headline. That's going to be awesome.
