    Default Too Many Lights in the Sahara (2011)

    I feel like I enjoyed the Sahara tent much more before the age of LED screens. 2009 was the shit with all those lasers, 2010, just ok, and 2011 gave me a headache. There was so much going on it was hard to handle, does anyone agree with me or am I just boring?

    didn't mind the LEDs at all but i agree about more lazers next year!
    And we're definitely going to hell, but we'll have all the best stories to tell.

    How's it even possible to have too many lights in the Sahara?

    The most etarded thing I saw in the Sahara was a bunch of floortards sitting on the ground near the front, with the giant video walls raging away, and they were facing away from it & totally transfixed by a kid waving around an LED glove.

    STOOOOOOOOPID....!

    What you saw at the Sahara hanging from the overhead was part of The Creators Project.

    And this was a pretty awesome concept.

    moar lazers. wtf there were NONE this year. that was one of the best things about last year in the sahara. i mean i love what they did with the LEDs in the front of the stage but after a while the overhead lights just kinda got old. it was cool seeing it from outside the tent though
    the music is what its all about, you love it just like i love it.

    The tent looked spectacular as you were walking up to it. I loved being able to see the crowd jumping and the lights going off before hearing the music. Idk why I thought this was so cool but it was.

    I loved the LED set up this year, but it definitely could've used lasers!

    The hanging LEDs were only for the people in the back half of the tent anyway, and even then u would have to look up to enjoy them, cool concept but add lasers to it and sahara tent lighting = epic win

    The hanging LED panels were useless if you were up front in the action and the LED walls on stage made the Sahara seem like a generic EDC or Ultra stage. Bring back the lazers and palm trees please. In fact, next year instead of hanging LED panels, I want to see a canopy of fucking lazers. Lazers spaced out every 5 feet along the edge of the tent, pointing towards the middle of the soundbooth.

    The lasers used in 2010 for Fever Ray's set were simply enthralling and amazing.

    That lack of lazers this year was very upsetting. I'm glad The Chemical Brothers had theirs out.

    That stage was beyond ultra quality and insomniac would have been proud to have that stage at one of their shows.
