HEY! I heard you like Wolfgang Gartner! So put Wolfgang Gartner in your Wolfgang Gartner.
Methinks SHM and Guetta will be the after-the-headliner-main-stage sets on Friday and Saturday. Looks like I'll be skipping the after-the-headliner-main-stage sets this year.
Out of morbid curiosity and with nothing else compelling on at the time I saw the first ~7 minutes of Guetta from the back in '10. Only 7 minutes because I got too embarrassed to be there and promptly left.
Amon Tobin? In the Sahara? I've noticed Coachella.com's lineup section now reads "Amon Tobin Isam Live". Will Isam fit in the sahara?
Blur-Stone Roses-YYY-Modest Mouse-J5-Grinderman-HTDA-Local Natives-Infected Mushroom-Jonny Marr-Four Tet-Aesop Rock-Jello Biafra-Earl Sweatshirt-Beardyman
Sugir Ros-New Order-Hot Chip-Grizzly Bear-Franz Ferdinand-Violent Femmes-Simian Mobile Disco-Spiritualized-Puscifer-Portugal the Man-Bat for Lashes-Theophilius London-Trash Talk
Nick Cave-Social D-Wu Tang-Pretty Lights-Tame Impala-Grimes-The Faint- Dinosaur Jr.-OMD-Roni Size-Rodriguez-The Three O'Clock-DIIV-(MAYBE RHCP)
Thats what I was wondering.. his set up is pretty huge. If it doesn't work out in the Sahara because of space I could see him in LCD's 2010 main stage spot.
If the Pyramid fit, ISAM will fit. I don't think he'll have ISAM though...expect a DJ set. I think it would say on the line up "Amon Tobin: ISAM"
Janelle Monae, Spiritualized, Loco Dice, Cloud Nothings, Paul Kalkbrenner, Blur, El-P, Kurt Vile, Nick Cave, Sigur Ros, Moby, Grizzly Bear, The Shouting Matches, Four Tet, Modest Mouse, Japandroids, Savages, Jessie Ware, Booka Shade.
Friday: the black keys - shm - pulp - refused - arctic monkeys - M83 - amon tobin - the rapture - madeon - sebastian - neon indian - breakbot - givers - wolf gang
Saturday: RADIOHEAD - bon iver - the shins - kaskade - miike snow - sub focus - SBTRKT - flylo - kasabian - tune-yards - grouplove - jaques lu cont
Sunday: Dre & Snoop - at the drive-in - justice - florence + the machine - la roux - the hives - dj shadow - nero - modeselektor - dada life - gotye - noisia - gaslamp killer - metronomy
ISAM will fit. I think it makes sense for them to close the Sahara with SHM on the main, gives them time to set up and for the crowd to drink some water after PLURing for ten hours and then move over to the main so they can PUT THEIR HANDS UP!! for Angello and company.
I went 09/10, 11 the lineup was a massive letdown
this year it's a lil better and i did want to go
but honestly coachella is a 100% commercial-oriented hollywood enterprise now, I understand that they've booked many classic rare bands in their history but they're obviously running out of steam in regards to that now, of course you can only do that so much given the limited amount of bands that you can reunite and etc.
but this dance lineup is a joke, don't really feel that it's in the classic spirit of coachella at all, aka to book electronic acts that are on the cutting edge, last year they gave a little bit of space to that sort of music hence them booking joy orbison, ramadanman, kode9, etc... but this year.. nothing but trashy ass vegas house and shitty brostep.
like even in 09 in retrospect i know that bloody beetroots and surkin were very trendy acts but they were more relevant to their time than these acts are to now.
i only lament missing coachella due to the immediate sellout and the insane resale prices because of the quality rock bands they bring, even though i'm a huge edm fan. why the fuck didn't they book rustie, lone, girl unit, kingdom etc... it's going to sell out anyways may as well get some quality control in there.
anyways idk i'm drunk as fuck, and i'm ranting
this sahara lineup is an all-time low though
edit: except for modeselektor. but they're probably gonna get tossed in the mojave anyway. wherever they play though, modeselektor are gonna shred it.

dancing so fast
honestly where the fuck is rustie.
Amazingly thorough and well done!
ISAM would be completely underwhelming on the main
you would have to have some serious brain damage to believe amon tobin is going to perform on the main stage
The underground music fans told me he's totally better than the pyramid, so LOGICULLY HE WOULD HEADLINE
