    Tiesto and Guetta are 2 of the Top 3 DJs in the world. They're not going to booker lesser DJs and put them in high billing in hopes that they'll have the same drawing power. That would be foolish. They want to sell tickets, so you have to book DJs with drawing power in order to have DJs with less drawing power. There are plenty of other dance acts on the lineup that were not part of the 2007 lineup.

    If they wanted to sell more tickets, they should have booked Madonna again. Seriously, that is so lame.. What happened to all the good live acts?

    You do realize there is more than one thing going on at once at Coachella? Right?

    Everytime Tiesto randomly ends up on a festival setlist and I see him, I realize why the hell he's regarded as one of the best DJs in the world. My face gets melted off everytime.

    It's kind of awkward holding back your revulsion when one of your friends says he can't wait for Tiesto.

    So many people love Tiesto. And he generally only does great sets for huge crowds like Coachella.

    I'm hoping that he has tons of special guest appearances during his set. That will spice things up!

    I gotta say, outside of Orbital, Plastikman, and Flying Lotus (and maybe 2manydjs? I'm still not that familiar, and LCD looks to be subbing, not Saharaing), this is another disappointing year for the Sahara. Lots of repeats, outdated acts, and cheesy crowd pleasing bullshit. (Although I'm very very happy with those three.)

    think about it though, we got flylo, bassnectar, orbital, LCD soundsystem, and a bunch more goodies. You gotta pay for everything.

    Coachella was the same way last year. I guess everyone loves the outdated cheesy "face-melting" acts.

    Well looking at your sig I can see where the disappointment comes from. We all have exciting years at Coachella and you've been around this board long enough, so I can respect your 'dis' to this years lineup.

    They can't win it for everybody.

    also, not defending guetta, but he just had THE BIGGEST YEAR in 2009.

    i mean, pineapple express = mia is to the hangover = guetta

    so many love that soundtrack to that movie EVERYONE wants to hear that Akon mix this year.

    not that i will be there during his set, but he does kinda deserve a big year.

    now tiesto on the other hand...

    Yeah. I'd say this year is an improvement over last year thanks to Plastikman and Orbital. I guess I should just stop expecting Coachella to book relevant electronic acts. There's already too many damned conflicts every year as it is.

    Saturday is a trance/cheesy electronic addict's wet dream.

    Tiesto, David Guetta, Kaskade, Dirty South.

    So some outdated cheesy trance acts are on the line up. I don't really care. It will keep all the people I don't like away from the acts I want to see.

    Plus, they do sell tickets.

    TONS of OC rave kids will come out for the Saturday line-up. They won't show up til later in the evening, so hopefully we can all enjoy some solid earlier sets and a bad-ass 2ManyDJ's show before the ultimate cheesiness starts.

    Tiesto = ticket sales + new album released relatively recently, elaborate live show to be expected, always epic sets

    Guetta - Huuge year in 2009, large catalog of hits

    Benassi - saw him at EDC this past year and blew me away and I wasn't expecting much at all from him.

    Mix in all the other great high demand/popular DJ's + some up and comers, and I'm not complaining one bit, in fact I'm stoked! That being said, if a conflict arises b/w Tiesto/Guetta/Benassi, I will be skipping them since I've seen them all in the last yr.

    3 irritating factors at work here

    a) these uberDJs are gonna be getting monumental paychecks that could've been used to book live acts/fresh talent
    b) the tiesto/guetta/kaskade/benassi/deadmau5 crowd is basically one and the same. booking them all was like fishing with dynamite
    c) amongst the 5 of them, they've gotta have made like 20 trips to LA over the past year

    david guetta being on the lineup realllllyyyyyyy gets me though. him being at TAO was overkill...this is just ridiculous. there is nothing facemelting about his shit, it's all boring, gutless pop. ugh

    okay, not complaining about this anymore. we got fucking orbital and plastikman

    I don't care so much that Tiesto is there. It's more about the fact that they don't fill out the undercard with great stuff. Why can't we have some Villalobos or Lindstrom or Omar S or Radio Slave or Carl Craig or Robert Hood or Frankie Knuckles or Michael Mayer solo or some more Warp acts or . . . . . There's so much stuff happening in electronic music that there's no excuse for the undercard to be so repetitive. I know you have to sell tickets, so throw a couple of big cheeseball names up there, but give the rest of us a little more to work with.

    Not trying to bitch too much since I'm happy with the lineup, but between this and Ultra's lineup, it's depressing to see where America's electronic tastes lie.

    It's all about the big money. I'd love for some minimalist house....but I don't think Coachella is the place to find it. Maybe the Dome will have some surprising acts (if there is a Dome!!)

    I knew exactly who would freak the fuck out when they saw Tiesto and David Guetta and Infected Mushroom and DeadMau5 all on the same poster. hahahaha...teens and their crazy musical tastes.
