p.s. Kanye is going bring that shiiiiiiit.
You know what... FUCK IT, I'm seeing Kanye West, and I'm going to enjoy it.
I'll even listen to his songs to prepare myself and stuff. THIS IS COACHELLA, BITCHES!
All I know is that Kanye's set is gonna be FUCKIN RIDICKILISS.
Lol, for all the hate on this board
There is so much love at coachella.
My mind is confused.
I'll be interested to see if Kanye can redeem himself after the last time I "saw" him at the Bonnaroo 2008 debacle. What an assclown he was.
It would be cool if Justin Vernon (Bon Iver fame, plays with Gayngs too) got up on stage with him for some live 'Lost in the World' action.
to be honest, i think bonaroo may not have been the right setting for kanye. i have heard a lot of unfavorable things about bonaroo for the last couple of years, so i don't want to hold it against him because i think overall the festival is sorta lame. i think coachella is a good venue for kanye, it seems like the kinda crowd he could work. regardless of how much people hate the line up and headliners, i am truly looking forward to seeing kanye perform. i think he is gonna rock the shit and i will be right in the front. coachella usually has something for everyone, so just go find what works for you and right now i know kanye is working for me.
"Hell of a Life" is gonna be fucking INSANE...........

I wouldn't say I'm a Kanye fan or anything, but I respect the fact that he thinks he's the greatest ever. I'm sure his show will be a spectacle, you know he's going to throw everything at the audience, complete with tons of guest appearances.
That being said, I may or may not be watching, depending on who he's up against. Sunday is stacked.
If its a The Strokes vs Kanye West, then I'm Strokes all the way. Otherwise, I'm excited to see what he's got.
This is Coachella everybody! Bring the love baby!
I hope you guys don't get your hopes up on guest appearances. That's not really Kanye's thing. More so Jay-Z
NO OUTKAST/BONOBO CONFLICT
I'd love to hear these "unfavorable" things you've been hearing, I've been to the festival for many years and it is one of the best in the nation. Kanye could have killed it at the Roo, but he couldn't get his shit together and never once acknowledged the audience who waited until the wee hours of the morning to see him.
To sum it up Kanye makes good music but he is a total douchebag. It's pretty much universally understood I feel.
I can't decide if I'm looking more forward to hearing Kanye perform dark fantasy or Cee Lo perform bright lights bigger city.
2 oz blended whiskey
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1/2 tsp powdered sugar
1/2 slice lemon
Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.
Kanye is the best headliner they have. KOL gtfoh
I've got two fingers in the air, and ya gots to give me somethin to smoke.
i had several friends who have gone to bonnaroo and hated it. people using heroin in the crowds in broad daylight. dirt and mud and shit and crowd control. all kinds of shit like that. not to say coachella doesn't have that, but everything i have heard makes bonnaroo sound like the ultimate shit show. good for you that you like it and enjoy it, but my mind is going to stay firm on the fact that coachella is for kanye and he is gonna fuckin kill it.
