    Good fine. Like you BS, I was concerned that Coachella would be their only westside date. Looks like that isn't true. WOOT WOOT!

    Now we need some Trentemoller dates and all will be right with the world.

    It will be a live set. Or, at least, since starting to do Leftfield dates again, it's only been live shows.

    On another note... If only this happened LAST year. So that Lydon could have joined them to do Open Up. That would have been amazing.

    It's not out of the realm of possibility considering that Johnny lives in LA these days. Although that being said, he's pretty much an old cantankerous geezer now and probably wouldn't be paid much for 1 song.

    I'd love for this to happen tho! He still likes to play that tune for sure, even during last years tour with PiL.

    Coachella 01' - 13' and still counting..... 13th year!!!! Geez, I'm getting old..

    Leftfield is one of my must-sees on Sunday. Leftism is pretty good, a little boring in some parts though. Afrika Shox is one of my favorite songs ever, and the video is awesome.
    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    It wouldn't surprise me, although PiL did it as their final song to close the Outdoor on Friday last year, so maybe he'd feel like he was repeating himself. I would think Neil would've asked him, at least.

    the orb in 09 was so depressing. the tent filled with candy ravers and teeny-hipsters. after 5 minutes it was almost less than half capacity.

    leftfields billing is wack, coming all the way from UK, pioneers of vocal electronica, peers like crystal method calling them one of the best electronic bands, recently headlining Rockness and playing mainstage at electric picknic and billed under neon trees and blood beetroots? where is the justification

    Which was great for the rest of us who felt like dancing and losing our minds.

    I would love a half-empty tent for Leftfield for the same reason.

    I've listened to Live at Homelands 2000 a couple of times over the past few days (it's perfect road-trip music) and I'm sold. I'm a little worried about conflicts that day (DFA 1979, PJ Harvey, and The National), but if Leftfield closes the Sahara then I think I should be ok.

    Does anyone know if they still regularly drop Afrika Shox in their sets. It's not necessary, I suppose, but I really liked the Inspection (Check One)/Afrika Shox back to back. And Black Flute. I'm sure whatever they play will be good, though.

    Didn't even know who Leftfield was until I stumbled upon this thread. I watched a live performance on you tube and they quickly sky rocketed to my can't miss for anything list. Whatever set time Leftfield has I know there won't be a conflict because I am going to be at that set.

    Africa Shox has always been a staple of their live performances and I'd be shocked if they didn't play it at coachella, even with what's likely to be a shortened set.

    Good show, Jeff.

    This is good news, thanks for the feedback. This set would be a great way to end the weekend. I'm down with whatever they play. But, for whatever reason, I couldn't stop jamming Afrika Shox on my drive from Phoenix to Albuquerque.

    The lack of excitement for Leftfield strikes as being indicative of the shift in attendee demographics. Kind of sad.

    Also, these guys are going to be phenomenal.

    I felt that way when I noticed how empty the sahara tent was during orbital.

    So before Jonsi last year my boyfriend and I met a group of 4 (3 guys, 1 girl), who kindly shared their joint. They told me that they had all been to every single Coachella, and I tried to convince them to see Plastikman instead of Thom Yorke. Then one of the guys and I talked emphatically about how awesome it would be if Leftfield came and shocked the Sahara. I don't know if anyone in that group uses or reads the boards....but if so.....LEFTFIELD!!!

    This shit better be so fucking loud.

    It was pretty ridiculous. I rushed over from the outdoor 5 mins before Orbital came on. I was able to get 5 rows back from the front with neigh a push or shove.
