    Default The Mojave is the new Sahara

    Seriously, talk about grouping all the best dance acts in one tent this year. It saddens me that the Sahara has largely become a hotspot for the assholes and E-tards of the festival (the bad vibes are overwhelming in there), but the Mojave was on fire all week. Between Leftfield, The Presets, Robyn, Scissor Sisters and Cut Copy, I don't think I ever left that tent non-sweaty and tired.

    I guess the generic electro DJs need a place to congregate but next year, let's give the Sahara sound system and lighting rig to its neighboring tent.

    The Mojave was the place to be in 2011.

    i actually said to my gf on saturday: "jesus its like the year the sahara died, all the best electronic acts are either mojave or the dome".

    maybe next year they can cordon-off the sahara and let the candykids and the e-tards fuck and needle stab each other to death all weekend.

    I think I did 5 or 6 straight sets in the Mojave on Friday, and was there about half the time on Saturday. I was flying home on Sunday, so can't really comment on the Mojave's Sunday. But yeah...most time I've ever spent in one place at any of my 5 Coachellas.

    Every time I went into the Sahara I came out disappointed and disgusted with the direction house/EDM is taking.

    Mojave and Outdoor were my top stages this year in terms of incredible sets.

    Mojave = good dance music without all the bros and candy kids

    And Foals right before them. And don't forget Black Joe, Drums, Pains, and even MEN was fun for a couple of songs. You could do worse than a one-stage festival with just Mojave acts this year.

    I agree with these posts!

    It didn't take long to figure out that all of the live electronic music (with one exception) was outside of the Sahara (Outdoor Stage or Mojave). I think I went into the Sahara for two acts (Shpongle and Green Velvet)...it was so nice to have the live electronic music at other locations (Empire of the Sun and Chromeo at the outdoor stage was very cool)...but, I would have LOVED to hear LeftField's Theremin on the Sahara's sound system...would have been very cool.
