    Yea, I saw this in person. It was a ghost town, kind of a sad turn out. I only walked passed it though. It was strange to see so little people in a tent with a a band on stage. The cure and a late Sunday spot killed em.

    I saw both Fantômas and Throbbing Gristle. I was right at the front for both and never looked back; I didn't realize how small the crowd was until I saw photos online.

    Both were some of my favorite Coachella sets.

    I saw Scala & Kolacny Bros on the webcast and it looked amazing. Really want to catch them live. Those horrendous set times really eased a lot of doubts I had about skipping last year. Them and the Chemical Brothers were the closest I had to must-sees that day and they both played at the same time, and then earlier in the afternoon there were 4 acts I wanted to see that clashed and overlaped, and at least a few hours in the evening with nothing I wanted to see.

    Also Black Keys whenever they played in the Mojave. It may have gotten more
    crowded as it went on but at the start there were maybe 5 rows of people.
    I remember two things about cutting through the Mojave on my way out for the night before their set. First, the tent was completely empty. Second, Pulp was playing over the PA.

    wont be surprised if the fascist elite start using the cattle bracelets to take tally of how many people are in each tent and pay accordingly.

    Well, there's that, but it might also have had something to do with the fact that they are a band whose catalog includes spoken word based songs about ripping a fetus from a pregnant woman's stomach with a knife. Kind of a niche act to begin with, regardless of billing or historical significance.

    Purefilth dome forgot who was playing but there were literally like 3 people there and I made it 4 to see what was being played.

    I forget who it was, but I just remembered walking by the Outdoor Theater early one day in 2008 or 2009 and there were two rows of people at the stage.

    I walked by the Neon Trees last year on my way to the Main stage to see basically nobody. I had a good chuckle.

    I think them being way late really killed it. I arrived there at the time they were supposed to start and it was quite big, but as it kept getting delayed and delayed everyone dwindled away.
