    Expect a Sahara headliner to still be announced - I agree with you. I think Tiesto has one sewn up.

    Seriously GV has already had the majority of the epic electronic acts that can properly rock out out the Sahara [daft punk, kraftwerk, underworld]. They need to bring in APHEX TWIN or should consider Rabbit In The Moon.. if you've ever seen their live show you know what i'm talking about!!

    I have seen Rabbit In The Moon, and yes there show is entertaining but i find it appalling that you would consider them anywhere near the same caliber of performance as kraftwerk, daft punk or underworld. They have an interesting visual component of their show yes. But their music is NOTHING SPECIAL.

    Maybe, but there is a better chance of getting RITM than the other mentioned acts....

    Is it just me or is there no HOUSE MUSIC this year? After having Derrick Carter and Kaskade last year, they went completely off the deep end on trance and the new dirty disco/electro sound that's hot right now.

    Hawtin is really the only legit, respected, big, international DJ in the lineup that pretty much everyone can agree on. If they were trying to cater to the SoCal tendencies, there should at least be some house music in there. They could have at least called up Doc, David Alvarado, or Marques Wyatt. Even Migs and Farina are in Cali...they are no brainers, draw as much in Cali as a trance DJ would, and make for a much better time for the people who don't want to pop pills all day.

    Whats wrong with Felix, I saw him at MM and he tore the house down. Shadow is dope. I agree with Rabbit in the Moon too, they are probably one of the best live shows Ive seen.

    Doesn't Faithless count as a headliner?

    Faithless/FTHC might be one on Friday, LCD soundsytem/Tiesto on Saturday, Soulwax/PVD on Sunday

    but yeah, i agree sahara headliners need upgrade.

    And we need a upgrade in hip hop too. Public Enemy, A Tribe Called Quest, Madlib, MF Doom, or Afrika Bambaataa anyone?

    Who cares when you've got talent like Justice, Digitalism, Erol Alkan, Evil Nine and Soulwax!...but I do agree, Tiesto and PVD are tired.

    Why is Tiesto billed so much higher than Van Dyk? I predict he gets knocked down unles he's doing one of his live sets.

    Even though PVD and Tiesto always duke it out for the 1 and 2 most popular DJ's in the world, Tiesto's is just the more popular draw among trance crackers. He's a bigger name than PVD among the general public.

    Tiesto doesn't DJ anymore. I read he only uses Live now. Thus any set of his is a live set, even though for trance that's pretty meaningless. All it really means is there's no chance of train wrecks. You're paying tons of money to watch him either play his pre-wired set.

    maybe they could battle, set up both their rigs, press the play button and then
    a heated match of paper football while their sets do their thing.

    I think for Friday night the headliners are intended to be Faithless and DJ Shadow (in which order, I'm not sure). That's fine with me, but Saturday needs another big name to go with Tiesto, and likewise for Sunday with PvD. I expect Underworld added to close it down Sunday night and something like Sasha/Digweed added to Saturday. I've got my fingers crossed for Aphex Twin and Squarepusher to be thrown in there somewhere as well!

    Those of us who like to dance care.

    Sasha and Digweed would be excellent, but they were just in LA for NYE.

    If Faithless can be a Sahara headliner, I'm worried someone might decide to throw Happy Mondays in there...

    I think the sahara has quite the lineup this year. It could use maybe one more big add, but its pretty stacked maybe not at the top, but mstrkrft, soulwax, justice, vnv nation, faithless, infected mushroom, hawtin.
