Thread: Coachella Stage electronic act 2012

  1. #1

    Default Coachella Stage electronic act 2012

    2010 - Tiesto (saturday)
    2011 - the Chemical Brothers (friday)
    2012- ?????

    2 years in a row an electronic act has closed the main stage one night of the fest. My bet is that the streak won't end here.

    The easy prediction is Daft Punk, but that is just lazy, wishful thinking.

    With a new album coming out soon, it is highly likely that Justice makes an appearance next year. I'm sure many of us have seen them before, and would love to see them again. But do they have enough energy to captivate the main stage audience?

    I personally think they do.

    10/16 Massive Attack @ Greek Theater (?), 10/18 Culture Collide, 10/26 Asobi Seksu & Slowdive @ Royale, 11/7 Warpaint @ Echoplex, 11/12 Blonde Redhead @ Fonda

    Justice on the main stage playing their new shit would be grand.

    EVERYONE remembers Justice. Even with a new album coming out I really still do not see them closing out / playing late on the main stage. The Sahara, yes.

    Underworld.

    Long overdue.

    Or Boards Of Canada. Then again, you have a better chance of Daft Punk doing backflips and playing hopscotch on the main stage w/ Bowie then seeing BOC at Coachella.

    How about forgetting the main stage and focusing on billing a better Sahara lineup, eh? EH?

    BOC are the least likely act in the entire world to play Coachella...I can't think of ANYONE less likely who could be there...unfortunately

    Keep it in the tent! I feel like something is missing when they put these acts on the main.

    There was nothing missing with the brothers set except the end of it.

    The only dance acts that can/should play the mainstage are the ones that are big enough to play huge venues.

    Daft is a mainstage act. No question.

    Fatboy Slim may be suitable for the mainstage.

    The Prodigy should be in a tent. There'd be MUCH more energy in that setting.

    At this point, Aphex Twin belongs in the mojave. He doesn't blend in at all with the Sahara, and putting him on the mainstage is just wrong.

    I'd put Moby (live) on the outdoor or in a tent.

    Justice.... maybe. Still think they'd land in the Sahara. But who knows.

    If history tells us anything, it's that things that happen two years in a row won't happen the following year. There will be a '90s headliner next year, I bet.

    But the answer to this thread is Radiohead.
    Ron Paul 2012!

    Upcoming Shows:
    Four Tet
    Coachella 4/20-4/22
    Death Cab for Cutie/Magik Magik Orchestra
    Radiohead
    some other bands

    Looks like Swedish House will unfortunately be keeping the trend alive. Hopefully Amon Tobin opposes him in the Sahara.

    It's "them." P.S. SHM sucks.

    Apparat or Nathan Fake should play in Sahara or Gobi! Tired of the commercial house producers. A bit too much of that this year.

    Whoops, obviously knew that. Just upset that Kraftwerk isn't in the Friday night main stage spot. I guess I'll settle for their Ultra show.

    I'm not a fan of SHM being the main electronica 'get' this year (along with guetta), but their production value is pretty top notch. I can't see them not being on the main stage.
