Thread: PROOF that COACHELLA DANCE SAHARA LINE-UP is MAINSTREAM and LAME as HELL this year

    Default PROOF that COACHELLA DANCE SAHARA LINE-UP is MAINSTREAM and LAME as HELL this year

    Electric Daisy Carnival 2012

    TiŽsto
    Steve Angello
    Sebastian Ingrosso
    Avicii
    Benny Benassi
    Kaskade
    Afrojack
    Above & Beyond
    Armin van Buuren
    Bassnectar
    Calvin Harris
    Carl Cox
    Chase & Status
    David Guetta
    Erick Morillo
    Flux Pavillion
    Kaskade
    Knife Party
    Porter Robinson
    Richie Hawtin

    Sad sad day when this teenage cluster fuck has an almost identical but ultimately better/DJ dance line-up than Coachella.

    literally the only artist on this list thats maybe (over)due for a coachella appearance is carl cox. he alone does not improve this lineup that much over coachella's EDM.

    Agreed. Carl - Richie Hawtin - even the return of Chase & Status would be welcome compared to the SHF take over.

    It's a really disappointing year for dance/EDM - it's like a VIP bottle Las Vegas casino night club has taken over the Sahara.

    I like Modeselektor and Sub Focus and a few others who happen to be on the Coachella lineup more than anyone on your list sans Carl Cox and Richie Hawtin. That being said, I would be shocked if they both didn't end up at EDC.

    Also, can we stop pretending EDC has totally shitty lineups? Of course they are going to bring the Avicii's and the Guetta's of the world, but over the past several years they have given enough variety to make a lot of attendees satisfied.
    fuck.

    I love how you looked to elsewhere for proof rather than just looking at the Sahara lineup

    even if carl cox, richie hawtin, and chase & status replaced SHM/ingrosso/guetta this year's EDM lineup would be weaksauce as shit.

    lineup is seriously lacking in big name electronic acts and/or relevant underground/up and coming/buzzband DJs. it's thoroughly middling and mediocre.

    coachella is billed as an alternative - not mainstream festival. Electric Daisy makes no such claims. they have always gone for mass appeal. So to prove my point that Coachella shit the bed this year when booking the Sahara - I did in fact need to point to a mainstream event to back up my claim. I hope you aren't a lawyer JULOXX.

    Fail.

    Using your logic Plastikman is mainstream since they booked him last year.

    And Chase & Status were one of the best acts in the Sahara last year.

    And Carl Cox is a great DJ. His sound is hardly mainstream.

    It's a conspiracy to let the cheese lovers buy up the tix, then it sells out and Cemical Bros, Daft Punct and Jesus are announced as actual headliners, then all the people who like good music will be mad cuz they gotta pay so much to see jesus and richie hawtin and douches will still be happy

    This is proof that Coachella's EDM lineup isn't shitty at all. All of the artists that Bryce just named here are some of my favorite artists that I listen to all year round, and am really excited to see at Coachella. And in my opinion Bryce left a few off that list, like Nero, who I'm excited for. Plus Coachella has the Do Lab too, and they've put together a great fucking lineup this year. If you don't like Guetta, Kaskade, etc. then stop focusing on how pissed you are that GV booked them and focus on all of the talent that's there.

    And sure the people that were just announced for EDC are all chesseball, with a few exceptions, but they haven't announced the full lineup yet and I'm sure that when they do there will be a lot of great names and genres being represented, just like there was last year. It's really unfair to say that the whole lineup is shit.

    I wouldn't necessarily separate Dada Life from the Guetta / SHM / Afrojack category of mainstream shit acts... And acts like Mt. Eden, Gaslamp Killer and Feed Me aren't really boosting the quality of the actual dance lineup.
    fuck.

    I'd rather watch Guetta + SHM, at the same time, twice, than Mt. Eden, Gaslamp Killer, or Feed Me, even once. Those three are three of the worst of the weekend. But FloLo, SBTRKT, Modeselektor, Noisa, Subfocus, DJ Shadow, and Amon Tobin, are all good.

    All fully legit:
    Modeselektor
    Flying Lotus
    Amon Tobin
    SBTRKT
    Sub Focus
    NERO
    Noisa
    DJ Shadow

    2nd tier, but still well worth checking out barring conflicts:
    SebastiAn
    Porter Robinson
    Madeon
    Jacques Lu Cont
    Beats Antique
    Flux Pavilion & Doctor P (if you like dubstep, that is)

    ...and admittedly I do wanna see Justice, cuz I haven't seen him before, but I will say I'm quite skeptical about his set. same with Calvin Harris.

    I think Justice is gonna be great. I know I'm in the minority, but I really like their new album; it's different, sure, but still interesting. Madeon is also pretty great, I'd move him to the first tier, in Nero's place, who I'd drop. Otherwise, your first tier is legit.
