Friday: Kendrick Lamar vs. Yuck, Feed Me vs. Grouplove, Madeon vs. Wu Lyf
Sautrday: Kasabian vs. Flying Lotus, Miike Snow vs. Godspeed vs. Sbtrkt, Radiohead vs. A$ap Rocky vs. Sub Focus
Sunday: DJ Shadow vs. Modeselektor vs. Dre+Snoop
Quite a bit there. Boo. But, I can see Kendrick Lamar, Flying Lotus, Godspeed, and A$ap Rocky at Pitchfork that definitely helps decisions. And Miike Snow, Sbtrkt, Sub Focus, and Madeon are at Lollapalooza so that helps too. And I saw Radiohead last month, and three other times in my existence on this earth. Given my fortunate ability to alleviate conflicts I guess I'm pretty happy, provided this is applicable to weekend 2 of course.
If I wasn't going to other things I'd be pissed. Modeselektor vs. Shadow, wtf?

Miike Snow vs SBTRKT
Azaelia Banks vs Childish Gambino
Florence vs Shadow vs Modeselektor
St Vincent Vs. Jeff Magnum
The Shins Vs. Feist
Madness Vs. Arctic Monkeys (Only 20 minutes, but missing Madness open or Monkeys close is going to suck.
Explosions in the Sky v. M83
Radiohead v A$AP Rocky
My music vs. my girlfriends "taste" in music
I think that weekend two will have some acts moved around. Just a theory...
Jeff Mangum vs. St. Vincent.
The Weeknd vs. Gotye vs. Nero.
WU LYF vs. Arctic Monkeys.
Friday: Neon Indian vs. Gary Clark Jr. and The Horrors vs. Amon Tobin
Saturday: Fiest vs. Kasabian and Radiohead vs. Kaskade (Obviously I'm going to see Radiohead, but i'm still bummed. The Sahara will be empty!)
Sunday: Dre and Snoop vs. Dj Shadow vs. Modeselektor = the biggest disappointment of them all. ugh
St.Vincent/Feist vs The Shins/Flying Lotus
Swedish House Mafia vs Refused
Justice/ATDI vs Girl Talk
Having to miss Sbtrkt, Godspeed, and ASAP for Radiohead=sadness
I'm going weekend 2 but if they're the same then...
Nero vs Gotye
Florence vs Modeselektor (I've seen shadow)
Miike snow vs sbtrkt vs god speed
Saturday has the most acts I want to see, but somehow I ended up with the fewest conflicts (Jetpacks and Vaccines is all I can think of). Friday is a motherfucker tho. Yuck/EMA. Arctic Monkeys and getting a good spot for Pulp v. Madness v. Wu Lyf v. Dawes. Would have loved to go Dawes > Madness > Pulp, but getting close for Pulp is my weekend's main priority.
There's a lot of conflicts, but none of the ones I was most worried about. I'd say my worst are
Pulp vs. Frank Ocean
Feist > Bon Iver > Radiohead vs. Flying Lotus > GY!BE > A$AP Rocky
Girls vs. Death Grips
M83 vs. EITS
I'm gonna go with Pulp, Feist/BI/Radiohead, Girls, and M83, methinks.
1/10: Mister Lies/Matthewdavid
Actually pretty pleased that most of my must-sees are not conflicted this year.
But Beirut vs. Girl Talk vs. At The Drive-In is a bummer.
I'm going to be missing most/all of Frank Ocean for Pulp
Missing most/all of EITS for M83 (and missing Black Keys again, haven't seen them since '08 and wasn't impressed then).
Missing Beirut for Girl Talk.
Newly a SF resident. Show me the ropes!
gotye ,the weeknd and nero the worst conflict
Outside of the one major conflict, I am actually not too worried about conflicts. Though I think this might be more of a result of the lack of depth (for me) in this lineup than just lucky scheduling.
- Sunday night's clusterfuck with Shadow vs Modeselektor into Dre - Just an absolute disaster. What the hell was GV thinking putting Modeselektor vs Shadow?
- Godspeed vs Miike Snow - A little bummed about this, but I can accept it. I am going to try to score tickets to the Miike Snow El Rey show.
- Childish Gambino vs Azealia Banks - Why put two hip hop acts against one another? It's not like hip hop is dominating this festival.
For your health
Neon Indian vs Gary Clark Jr. I'm still not sure what I'm going to do here, who is most likely to play in Southern California again?
Madness vs. Wu Lyf Madness no contest
From about three to six Sunday Afternoon should be consider one long and painful orgy of conflicts
Radiohead and ASAP
Friday: Yuck Kendrick Lamar Other Lives The Black Angels Frank Ocean M83 The Rapture Explosions in the Sky Amon Tobin
Saturday: Radiohead Bon Iver Miike Snow Flying Lotus SBTRKT A$AP Rocky Azealia Banks We Were Promised Jetpacks Keep Shelly in Athens
Sunday: At The Drive-In Dr. Dre & Snoop The Weeknd Justice Modeselektor Santigold Nero Thundercat Metronomy Wild Beasts Real Estate
*subject to change
Black Keys vs M83
End of Gotye vs beginning of Justice
Feist vs Flying Lotus
All in all, not too bad. I was worried about Sunday but it worked out okay for me.
Shins Vs. Feist Vs. Kasabian
Dre/Snoop vs. Florence
Coachella - 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013
SS Coachella - 2012
Florence & the Machine ends at 10:45pm , Dr. Dre & Snoop start at 10:45 IF they even start on time (which they won't). Leave Florence 10min early and you'll catch the whole Dre & Snoop set...
As far as conflicts...
Can't believe the M83 / The Black Keys / Explosions in the Sky conflict! I mean it seems like they're all similar in terms of their audience. Never seen The Black Keys and I figure their set is going to be insane.
Also extremely bummed out on the Neon Indian vs. Gary Clarke Jr. conflict. Definitely seeing Gary though. Too badass to miss.
Lastly the Breakbot vs. GIVERS is sad but I'll be seeing GIVERS hands down.
To be honest I can't believe that garbage excuse for DJ's SHM is going to close the main. I know I'll see 99% of this board at either Refused or Amon. Personally I'll be at Amon!
