    I'm not that worried for once. Pulp is THE PRIORITY for Friday, and I am going to enjoy a lot of running around on Saturday. I have seen Radiohead enough so I don't feel the urge to camp out at the Main Stage. I wonder where Noel Gallagher is gonna end up stage and time wise (I know.. there will 10,346 threads for that question soon enough). Nothing I HAVE to see on Sunday, so I am just gonna go for acts I have never seen before and enjoy the fuck out of it. And besides, if something goes wrong I am sure you can scoop up a cheap pass to weekend #2 and get your Groundhog Day on.

    For Radiohead, I think I'll have to camp out a little to get behind the second barriers on the right side (if they still do that). I still don't want to miss my other bands though. Saturday is rough for me.

    Despite being so stacked, Friday and Saturday look refreshingly manageable if billing and set times are even remotely close to last year. Sunday night is so painful already that it makes me want to vomit, particularly I can't think of a similar night that would set a precedent for Dre and Snoop/Justice/At the Drive In/The Weeknd. Frankly, Dre, Justice, and The Weeknd all seem like prime choices to close out the festival, and At the Drive In will conflict with whichever of the three doesn't close out. It's going to be Friday 2010 all over again.

    When do the Set Time Predictions threads start usually? Friday seems like a no brainer, but Saturday and Sunday are gonna be interesting this year.

    Friday: Just make it possible to not miss Mazzy Star or Cat Power in order to see Pulp or get a good spot for them
    Saturday: I don't think any of these would conflict, but the dream goes St Vincent->Feist->Mangum, then Godspeed in the Gobi and then Radiohead.
    Sunday: Beirut/The Weeknd

    this is unacceptable.

    i did a mock schedule with mangum on the outdoor to a silent gobi and main, godspeed gets 70 minutes in the mojave, and there is no conflict between the three.

    Pulp and Mazzy Star would be two acts I haven't seen that I most want to see, and there's a good chance they could overlap.

    Friday: I don't really see any conflicts. Mainly because no one on Friday even comes close to Pulp.

    Saturday: Radiohead vs. Jeff Mangum, already loathing this. Also, if Miike Snow is in the Sahara, I fear that I might have to miss their set in order to get a good spot for Radiohead.

    Sunday: I agree with everyone else, they stacked the real good closers all on one night: Dr. Dre/Snoop vs. Justice vs. The Weeknd. I'd probably go with The Weeknd; I've seen Snoop before and The Weeknd would beat Justice out by a mile.

    Saturday is going to be a mess between 3pm and 9pm I feel. With Andrew Bird, St. Vincent, Feist, Tune-Yards, Destroyer, Kasabian, The Vaccines, The Shins, and possibly Magnum.

    I'm not sure why everyone is locking into Magnum playing head to head with Radiohead. If I had to guess, I would think that Bon Iver would close the outdoor stage, with Jeff Magnum before him, Andrew Bird before him, and St.Vincent before him. It all meshes real well. Then I see The Shins going on right before Radiohead. Unless there is information I am unaware of.

    Justice vs Dr. dre is probably definitely going to happen but Im pretty sure the weeknd is going to open for Dre.

    Who else would open for dre? It's rnb/hiphop the latest and greatest thing and one of the most popular rap duos in history.

    Based on billing? At the Drive In. Show me a year where the #2 didn't open for #1 on the main. The musical genre doesn't matter. Plus, The Weeknd is far too intimate for the main stage, if he's not Mojave I'll be shocked.

    What about Florence + The Machine though? She's too big for the other stages, and I just can't see At The Drive-In following right after.

    My biggest concerns are

    Fri: Amon Tobin vs Explosions in the Sky
    Sat: GY!BE vs Radiohead
    Sun: DJ Shadow vs Dre/Snoop
    Arctic Monkeys - 10.25.14 - Comerica Theater
    Coachella - 4.10.15 - 4.12.15 - Empire Polo Grounds

    As long as there is no conflict between Jeff Mangum, GY!BE, and Radiohead (meaning I get to see all three sets in full) I can accept other conflicts, regardless of how hard to swallow they may be.

    Florence --> At the Drive In --> Dr. Dre/Snoop...I admit that is a bit jarring, but when has the #2 not performed right before the headliner? I agree Florence is 100% mainstage. The other thing about Sunday is that most of the big names just don't seem right for the main...La Roux? Beirut? The Weeknd? The Hives? All would be better on the outdoor or the Mojave. Of all of them, At the Drive In makes a little more sense for the main and will certainly draw a big crowd. And I really don't see Justice on the main this year either. I'm stoked on their set but think even Avicii will draw a bigger crowd and their new set just won't compare to the SHM from a spectacle standpoint, not to mention their album was only lukewarmly received. So I think they'll be in the Sahara.

    Hence why I'm really curious to see the Set Time Predictions thread. Sunday is going to be really weird, I can feel it. Not to mention, DJ Shadow and Girl Talk are almost definitely not in the Sahara with how stacked that day is EDM wise (even if it is EDC level stuff)...Calvin --> Justice --> Avicii?

    Well the weeknd conflicting with dr. dre would be the dumbest fucking thing that I've ever heard of in the history of coachella.

    They're the exact same fan base virtually. There isn't a weeknd fan that doesn't want to see dr. dre. I agree that #2 always plays before #1 on Sunday so I would guess that would leave an At the drive in/weeknd conflict which hurts my soul.

    I think you're kind of right, except that there are plenty of people who would probably only want to see The Weeknd...he's R&B, but it's definitely skewed toward an indie audience and is very much "Pitchfork approved". I just feel The Weeknd makes a lot of sense closing. One idea I've been toying with is that Dre and Snoop don't close...they stop at 11:00 and then Justice and The Weeknd close the Sahara and Mojave respectively. Avicii would play during Dre/Snoop. ATDI would still lead into Dre/Snoop, or maybe close out Outdoor. Isn't there at least one year of precedent where this happened, where the headliner didn't close although the main was dead?

    Hence why we need Set Times threads hah!
