    Default Dj's on the mainstage between acts.

    How do you guys feel about this? I know it was done in 1999 and 2001. It wouldn't have to be top name djs, but maybe someone like Jason Bentley whose playlist usually is on par with the Coachella acts. It wouldn't have to be the same volume, but just something to listen to between acts.

    Röyksopp, FC Kahuna, Télépopmusik, The Knife, RJD2, Futue Sound of London, The Avalanches, 808 State, Zero 7, Tycho, Mr. Scruff

    either way it would interfere with the sound check / line check that happens before each band goes on
    Good point.

    I really don't remember a single DJ on the main stage in '01 other than Oakenfold.

    Eh, as long as they play some good music over the PA's, I don't care about there not being DJs. I really enjoyed the music they played between Orbital and Plastikman in the Sahara, wish I could find out what it was.

    It's good to give the ears a rest once in a while. A little muzak in the background is fine though.

    I'd be all for it if it wouldn't screw with the already torturous sound check times. i.e: Wale. We'll never forget

    John Waters should just come out between every set.
