NOTHING MAKES SENSE. I CAN"T BRAIN ANYMORE
With the only other acts going on being Jurassic 5 and Modestep. Is Jurassic 5 going to pull that many people?
Jurassic 5 is gonna be stupid packed. Same with Foals
FOALS will be ridiculous. I couldn't even get tix for their Jimmy Kimmel mini concert tonight, and I'm on the priority list. They are finally blowing up in the U.S.
Going to be insane in the Gobi for them. Cant fucking wait!
I think last time the played in the Mojave and it was packed. Strange booking.
True. Grinderman, Blur and Modestep all end at 11:15, then mass exodus to the other stages. That should be fun.
Their set is gonna get wild.
Spanish Sahara....at night...........in the Gobi................YES
Don't worry Kanye, I like Fish-sticks too
Loved them in 2011 but going from Blur to How to Destroy Angels is going to be necessary. Just bought tickets to see them in Phoenix next Thursday instead. Love Coachella acts playing in my city NOT during the fucking festival. (I'm looking at you, Sigur Ros.)
The Gobi will be destroyed.

re: topic -- Foals in Gobi is one of my fest conflicts... but it will be awesome.
Sorry to bring it up, but I haven't been to a Kimmel indoor taping in awhile and am curious to how they handle them nowadays.

Praying to Vishnu that they play Milk & Black Spiders. Looks like it's not a permanent fixture on their setlist =(
Exactly what I did!
I am seeing them in Tempe to avoid one more conflict.
How packed was the Gobi for FOALS? Can I show up at 11:15 after Grinderman to catch the last bit of FOALS?
COACHELLA 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 10...
Haven't heard a thing about this set. Was it good? Was it packed? Kind of expecting big things from them.
I was at the front so I'm not sure how packed it was...but the show was awesome! Foals rocked it!

Did they get all crazy and destructive like in 2011? Did Yannis stage dive off the speakers? Lol.
2013 = Coverchella
2011 = Perfectchella
He was all over, in the crowd, soloing while crowd surfing, running up and down the area between the stage and the barrier. Even with that said, he seemed much more mellow and in control than 2011 (not a hard thing to do, considering how loco he was then).
FOALS fucking killed it! They absolutely rocked the Gobi. Better than their 2011 set.
Crowd wasn't super packed. The Purity Ring crowd was insane, but the crowd mostly cleared out when they were done. Had no problem getting a great spot for them right when they started.
One of the many highlights of my weekend, they played their hearts out and rocked so hard. I'm so glad I went to this set. The Gobi was not packed, a lot of people were hanging out outside of the tent though. It was easy to move around. I was a little worried about how their set would fare so late and night with the new material being somewhat slower, but they chose their set list wisely. Such a fun set, can't wait to watch it on the webcast during weekend 2 and relive the magic.
Hard to slag on Foals, but saw them last night at the El Rey - they didn't play a LOT of their higher energy/interactive songs in their Gobi Wkd 1 set. After seeing them last night, I really think their new record just doesn't hold up to their last two in terms of energy that would be perfect for their late night set. Here's hoping they change it up for Wkd 2 and throw in, among others, Electric Bloom, Blue Blood and Olympic Airways - have fun seeing them Wkd 2! And yea, was not as crowded as I would have thought, so if you are thinking about going, you don't need to get there extravagantly early.
