Thread: Sunday Sahara Tent closer?

  1. #1

    Default Sunday Sahara Tent closer?

    It can't be Throbbing Gristle can't it? Usually the Sahara headliner is a few notches below the main event headliner (like Justice was last year), and I don't see anyone Sahara worthy, which makes me think that the main even hasn't been booked yet, to which I urge GV for Basement JAxx or Moby!

    Does Groove Armada not ring any bells to you?

    P.S. It's Saturday that's missing a really awesome Sahara headliner, and even then MSTRKRFT is not a bad substitute.
    Upcoming Shows:
    * Dillon Francis + Anamanaguchi -- December 28th

    Going to Weekend 1 of Coachella 2014

    I hope they don't end the weekend with a groove armada dj set.

    For real. We need a massive Sahara act to go up against The Killers & Crackhouse. Not that their not wonderful performers or whatever, I just have no desire to see them and assume a number of other people feel the same way.

    It could also be Roni Size...who is incredible live! If I had to choose, I would say that Moby Live would be much better than a Moby DJ set.

    Oh, and the funny part is that the Flyer doesn't say Groove Armada DJ set...but, seeing Groove Armada live would be 1000x better than just their DJ set. I hope they bring their horns!

    I don't see that hate on Groove Armada? I'm not really a fan myself, but how are they any worse than seeing Fatboy Slim or whoever?

    Dude, I love Groove Armada. It's not hating. Clearly you haven't seen Groove Armada Live. Here, take a Look:





    Now, @ Coachella it's not gonna be even close to that. It's going to be the two guys just standing up in front of the turntables........

    The point is, we know this could have been Groove Armada live, and we know we are missing out on something great. Still, I will def check them out.

    Not really my style, but yeah, I can see how that would be disappointing in comparison.

    Groove Armada had the whole Sahara tent jumping back in 2002 with their DJ set. So I wouldn't discount it "sucking" yet. They played probably one of the best sets of that day, granted a live show is always welcome ( they did kill it again a year later with their live set up in the Mojave, which they closed). It's still going to be a fun set!
    Coachella 01' - 13' and still counting..... 13th year!!!! Geez, I'm getting old..

    it does say dj set above their name.

    and compard to previous years posters, throbbing gristle is pretty much where the other sahara sunday headliners are.
    maybe it would be roni size? it really leads me to believe there's an addition coming to close us out. i can't picture any of the current options comparing to justice last year.

    i hear ya. i'm just sayin based on the poster roni size is the highest level electronic act. besides throbbing gristle, which i can't picture in the sahara at all. though i will watch them no matter where they are.

    PLEASE.

    I could die happy, they would shit all over Justice last year (who were enjoyable but far from transcendent).
