Thread: What genres of music do you like to see more of?

  1. #1

    Default What genres of music do you like to see more of?

    I have appreciated the ska acts that have played recently (Madness,The Aquabats and the Specials). I would also enjoy more roots,americana,rockabilly stuff and yes I know they play that at Stagecoach.
    What other types would you like to see more of?

    I think overall the balance is good. More post-rock wouldn't hurt.

    How about switch up the question and just demand less dubstep.

    Heavy metal. There are plenty of really, really good heavy metal bands out there, and plenty that are Pitchfork-approved so all the hipsters out there can nod along to the riffage.

    I don't know what I'd like to see more of, but I know I'd like much much less Dubstep/Brostep.

    More goth, industrial, synthpop, and legendary acts like Paul McCartney, Roger Waters and Willie Nelson (these acts make my parents jealous of me).

    Coachella clearly doesn't have enough twee folk-pop indie hipster bands.

    Funk/soul/R&B. 2011 had some great acts in this genre and it totally worked for Coachella (Badu and Ms. Lauryn Hill). Would love to see a D'Angelo/John Legend type name on next year's poster.

    There used to be a wider variety of genres played by the bands on the undercard, and now they're mostly this. Definitely needs more hard rock/alternative.
