    Default Who will put on a f***ing show / spectacle?

    So this isn't about who's awesome-sounding live; I'm talking spectacle - performance + visual splendor. Like shows that someone with herbal or fungal supplements might go extra apeshit over.

    Last year - MIA tried, NASA succeeded, there was of course Etienne de Crecy and his cube...

    This year I'm expecting Jay-Z and Major Lazer to throw down. Gorillaz will do their toons on a screen show. Deadmau5 might have some new laser lights show.

    Who else?

    If we get anything near that big of a Plastikman setup, that's the set of the weekend.
    8/21 - The Zombies - Santa Monica Pier
    8/22 - Slint - El Rey (?)
    8/23-24 - FYF Fest - Exposition Park
    8/28 - Ty Segall - Echo
    8/31 - Sleep - Troubadour (?)

    He played from 8 until 10 in the morning.... a fucking mindfucking 2 hours.... i hope he is able to play that long at coachella. not exactly the danciest set... but totally legit and extremely dope. the only problem i have to say is that the people around were trying to make it something that it is not. there were times when you were supposed to be motionless and paralyzed by the massive acidity of the situation. i swear... some people just do not know how to listen... while others were talking on their cell phones the entire time. coachella.... i say, be prepared.... respect those around you... and let richie in to your hearts. don't be dissapointed if you expected to dance more.... it does not mean the event was a failure. thank you richie!

    Probably good advice, because I think there will be a lot of disappointed people. With so much of EDM these days being people playing bangers for hours on end it looks like RH is crafting an experience rather than a dance party. Just be forewarned.

    Corinne Bailey Rae is coming strong with some fierce lazers, huge pyrotechnics and go-go dancers.

    Seriously, I just hope they bring it set list wise. If Showbiz is played (which is won't) I'll lose my shit.

    If we are talking the full audio and visual all together this is all you need to know, no one at Coachella this year will be able to touch the audio/visual spectacle that will be Plastikman.

    He wouldn't be billed as PLastikman if we weren't getting that set up, that's the set up he has made for this tour and he will be using it for every show he is booked as Plastikman. That's like if Daft Punk played in '06 without their Pyramid, or Etienne without the Cube, just dumb to think that's not what we're getting.

    Meh. I am a HUGE Soulwax/2ManyDJs fan but, the VDJ gimmick is kind of more something too occupy the eyes rather than a huge mind-blowing spectacle. And don't get me wrong, they are going to FUCKING DESTROY the Sahara. But I wouldn't label their video gimmick as a mind-fucking spectacle.
