    It's unfortunate we'll have to choose between seeing all of Godspeed and getting a good spot for Radiohead. I was really hoping they'd play the same stage back to back. Would have made the most sense aesthetically.

    Radiohead in the Mojave may have gotten a little tight. And I'm not sure that GY!BE really would have "worked" as well outside. But yeah, going from Godspeed to Radiohead is gonna be an absolute shit show of the very highest degree.

    The intro for and many parts of Albanian were completely different than anything that I've heard them play before. They toned down the rugged sawing bass violin part that usually kicks things off by filling it in with more sound than usual. I'm almost inclined to assume that they plan on recording it as an actual song sooner than later.

    That's interesting. There's been rumors that they've been recording recently

    Go for the center front of soundboard and you'll barely notice it. Guetta's light show was a bit more distracting in my peripheral than the occasional OONTZ OONTZ.

    Yes. Get closer to the front center and you'll be ok. Also, it's Coachella. People are gonna talk through it and distract in general. Thank god I'm seeing them in SF this Friday.

    This is correct advice, do well and heed it Weekend 2 people. I spent the first half of the set by the soundboard and didn't notice bleed. Then i moved toward the back so I could lie down in the grass and the bleed was significant, though not a killer.

    If you've been going to shows long enough, you should know that in front of the soundboard is where it'll sound the best for most shows

    Not very. Between the Miike Snow and SBTRKT conflicts and early campers for the Radiohead set, this was to be expected. (and no, I don't count Dave Guetta as a conflict. wtf is a Dave Guetta anyway?)

    I was 2nd row...awesome set I thought...no sound bleed (or being distracted by Sahara lights) for me obviously. Sad there was no Moya (thought they might play it, since they soundchecked it) or BBF 3 though. Maybe next weekend.

    Beautiful performance. I was shocked by the lack of sound bleed.

    Anyone got a more solid setlist? I feel like there was an unexpected amount of material I did not recognize and I have everything they ever recorded, they definitely played at least four cohesive song units, I suspect they played at least one song worth of new material, has anyone heard of any rumors of Godspeed working on a new album or any new material at all since they reunited??? Perhaps ibjust need to do some reading and it's all old but I wan feeling optistic!!!!!!

    P.S. for the 500 or so people who actually showed up, this concert will have changed our lives forever. Godspeed was by far the best show at coachella 2012.

    Fever Ray and Godspeed should definitely go on tour together. Very similar live energy and atmosphere that you would not have expected based in their albums.
