    Late add ?

    They played last year, and while I'd love to see them with proper bass that their set requires (the sound was royally fucked last year), I doubt they'll return.

    biggest upset indeed. They are playing Beyond Wonderland march 17th. Go to that if you want to see them. They will not be a late add.

    The bass was...loud? There was no bass at all, that was the problem. The bass kicked in for a few seconds right at the end with Perfect Stranger and it was insane, but other than that, the bass was lacking the entire set.

    And it was their own fault too... not the sound people.

    I caught the tail end of thier performance and it was right when the bass kicked on. I was watching The Black Keys and missed most of their set, but I ran over to catch Sasha and saw the final few minutes.

    How do you know it was their fault? Just curious, that seems like something that's extremely noticeable if it was on their end that they would have fixed early on in the set.

    Someone on here talked to the sound guys and that person was told it was on Magnetic Man's end. Not sure of the specifics though.

    Hm interesting, you'd think that in a bass-driven live set, that'd be the first thing they try to fix rather than let it go unfixed the entire set, who knows, maybe it just wasn't fixable at the time? I talked to Benga on a plane ride over to Manchester over the summer and we talked about Coachella for a bit, I didn't want to push for any answers or annoy him but he never mentioned anything about shitty sound...

    Anytime I was in the Sahara last year, I hung out right at the sound booth. Talked to the sound guys after, and he said it was a problem on their end, didn't get into specifics. Everyone kept yelling at him too, and after a while he just started saying fuck off its not me.

    So the sound was bad near the back? I thought it was fine up in the front. MC was definitely annoying of course.

    I was there, regardless of the sound and Sgt. Pokes' annoying MC'ing, I still had a blast. Saw them again at Creamfields in August and their show was fucking incredible, I highly recommend seeing them at least once.

    They were lame the whole time, sound or not. Worst part was when the MC had everyone get down to the ground for awhile, leading you to expect some legendary drop. Ended up being one of the most underwhelming part of any set that weekend. Thank god the Sahara was in good hands afterwards.

    Sucks to be you, that part was awesome. He kept saying get low, get low... and you could feel the bass vibrating through the earth.

    What a bunch of whiners.

    Seriously. The sound wasn't bad, was expecting better, but the MC made me leave after 2 minutes of being there. "SCREAM IF YOU LIKE DUBSTEP!!! DUBSTEPPERS!! YEAH!"

    So terrible...
