I think it's a pretty damn good lineup. Yes, the Sahara blows. But really, aside from Sasha last year, what Sahara set was really that memorable?? I'll still be running around having a ball this year because the rest of the lineup is great.
At The Drive-In. Mazzy Star. Madness. Refused. GY!BE. Pulp. DJ Shadow. M83. Radiohead. The Black Angels. Squeeze. The Growlers. The Rapture. Flying Lotus. Buzzcocks. The Weeknd. Modeselektor. Dre and Dogg. The Sheepdogs. The Black Keys. Florence and the Machine (sorry, i'm a sucker, i know that's not credible, but )i just love that band, super lame, i know, so are run on sentences that aren't really sentences).
You know what might actually happen as a result of this Sahara lineup???
The kids might get bored. I don't know if there is enough molly and fist pumping to last through 25 of the same exact sets. I remember the Sahara in 2007. Mstrkrft, Justice, LCD Soundsystem and the Rapture all played in the tent the same night. And a know what? People had a fucking ball. I think in large part because of the diversity of those bands. It kept the stage interesting. I remember there being a steady debate about who was the best set at the end of the Sahara in 2008 between Aphex Twin, Pendulum and Fatboy Slim. Who cares who was right, there was diversity and people loved the musical change. In 2010, a lot of friends i have went to deadmou5 and said it was awesome. Fine, whatever. But they also went to go see Orbital and said they enjoyed Orbital more.
The point???? Diversity. Yes, the Sahara tent plays dance music. But it succeeds when it plays varying types of dance music. I think (most likely, wishfully thinking) that people will get bored by the same fucking set for 12 hours each day. Perhaps they will explore all the other sounds at the other stages or the artwork. And by the time Avicii gets on stage, he's playing to 15 drugged out mongoloids.
Fuck. What am I thinking. It's going to be deadmou5 and skrillex playing 6 hour sets next year. See? I'm contributing to my own rant. Damn I suck
Iron Maiden, Boards of Canada and Underworld for 2013

And we're definitely going to hell, but we'll have all the best stories to tell.
Out of every absolutely completely fucked up thing going on in the world, Skrillex being nominated for a Grammy is what's keeping you up at night?
9/12: Shifted @ Mercer
9/24 - 28: Decibel Festival
10/3-5: Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival
10/4: Ought @ BoH
10/5: The War on Drugs, Cass McCombs @ The Fillmore
10/18-19: Treasure Island Music Festival
I couldn't sleep last night and i was watching great amounts of Palladia's programming. I never thought in all my years that an artist like David Guetta would get so popular making the intermission music that plays between actual bands that play actual music.
Does anybody feel this way?
its a great thing that skrillex is nominated for a bunch of grammy's. way more proof for the argument that the grammy's are a meaningless shitty joke. anyone else notice he got 5 nominations and didnt release an album in 2011? just a shitty ep? lol fucking hilarious, LA times blows the guy up and theyre just like WELL GOTTA NOMINATE THE SHIT OUTTA HIM NOW
Speaking of the grammys, just wait til you see what they do with Dave Guetta. I hope he's backing Dave Grohl covering I Will Always Love You.
