    Default Which Likely Tent Acts Do You Expect To Have The Biggest Crowds

    I know the tents are larger this year...but which likely Gobi/Mojave acts do you fear will have crowds as unmanageable and dangerous for late comers as the likes of Yeasayer, Gossip and Florence and the Machine had last year.

    Titus Andronicus, Foals, !!! and Elbow (if not on outdoor) are four that immediately spring to mind for me.

    If Aquabats are on around 5, I anticipate them to have a large crowd.
    Same with Flogging Molly and Gogol Bordello. I can't FM in a tent but rather on the main stage, but we'll just have to wait and see.

    Not sure if the Sahara counts but the Chems' set is going to be overflowing for sure.

    Lauryn Hill
    Robyn
    Erykay Badu
    Gogol Bordello
    Crystal Castles
    Empire of the Sun

    I feel like the 3rd to 5th liners get the most crowds...

    Definitely see EOTS getting ridiculously packed at the Sahara.
    I have a feeling Lauryn Hill be on the outdoor theatre sometime at night but I could be wrong

    If EOTS is conflicting with Arcade Fire and are actually in a tent than I don't think it will be that bad.

    Anyone think an electronic act will go the main stage after any of the headliners minus Kanye?

    It's possible fore Paul van Dyk to go on main stage after Arcade Fire... But fuck that right?

    Making the assumption that the Sahara will at least be spaced out enough to dance which it usually is, most packed crowds:
    Cut Copy
    Chems (Obv.)
    OFWGKTA
    One Day as a Lion
    Ratatat
    The Presets
    Phantogram

    With phantogram being the biggest one, blown up so much lately!

    I really doubt ODAAL will be in the Sahara. I'm gonna guess main stage or maybe the Mojave tent.
    And I doubt OFWGTKA will be in the Sahara as well.

    I don't think he was saying all of those acts would be in the Sahara, it was just an awkward introduction to his claim.

    I'd agree on your list... I'd love to see Robyn again, but I have a feeling she's going to have a very popular set.

    If EOTS plays against Arcade Fire, that should hopefully even out the crowds a bit. I'm interested in what AF will do as the first headliner...

    Also, I think OFF! and Pains of Being Pure will get a boost from their recent Pitchfork love.

    Wasn't there a way to measure fan interest by facebook "I like" clicks?

    Empire of the Sun is at -least- an outdoor stage act with that live show, perhaps even main.

    I'm guessing Sleigh Bells and Jimmy Eat world for the Mojave. For the Sahara...Chem Bros, Duck Sauce, Boys Noize, Magnetic Man, and Steve Angello.

    Hopefully no volcano cancellations + better scheduling + better logistical control/lack of fence jumpers will make for a better crowd situation in the Mojave and Gobi this year.

    I was gonna say earlier that I feel that they'd play AFTER Arcade Fire on the main stage, considering their production.

    Last time FM played the Outdoor, IIRC and Gogol played Main. I doubt they will be downgraded to tents.

    This question will be easier to answer once we know who is actually in the tents.

    I hope Tallest Man On Earth is on the outdoor theater. Either way, his set'll be packed.
