    The full details belong in the set times thread, but I was bored and messing around at work, and there is a way to schedule this day so that Stone Roses and Blur play virtually to an empty outdoor, with Modest Mouse in between (I had SR overlapping 5 minutes, and Blur overlapping 10). Passion Pit leads into Yeah Yeah Yeahs leads into Stone Roses into Blur, Sahara goes Bassnectar --> Dog Blood --> Infected Mushroom with Bassnectar mostly conflicting with YYYs and not Stone Roses/Blur at all. This scenario still fits Lou Reed to a silent main/Gobi, Jurassic 5 gets nighttime outdoor, and HTDA/Beach House/Grinderman all get nighttime Mojave. This would spread out the masses between Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Bassnectar, and funnel the crowd into Stone Roses/Blur because less is going on. Dog Blood is still a big draw, but they are nowhere near as big as Bassnectar.

    I think GV will gently coerce the majority of the crowd into checking out Stone Roses/Blur just like they did Pulp on Friday last year (and to a lesser extent, Mazzy Star). They aren't big in America, but GV is clearly geeking out about this booking and knows the public is less than enthused and won't make it a big priority if something else big is going on. They are going to make sure as many people see it as possible.

    9,600(balconies curtained off, place holds 20,000 )
    $468,000

    This and the B-stage footage from Sasquatch aren't convincing me yet. Pulp did 14-18,000 in a couple different North American markets last year.

    Stuff like Black Crowes, Flaming Lips and My Morning Jacket have also sold out arenas on NYE.

    If we are talking 2011, only PJ Harvey ran into the Kanye. I went PJ and have no regrets.

    I still think it's insane that EDM acts sell out arenas these days.

    I remember people making fun of me for listening to EDM in high school lol.

    Pretty much every set after 3:30 pm last year was a clusterfuck in there. I think I went in the Sahara once each day. Only time I could find space was Friday afternoon for Breakbot and the crowd was still large in there. I got close enough to it when I would walk through the terrace and each time it was overflowing. The worse the music got, the bigger the crowd. Breakbot's set was good... smallest crowd I saw in the Sahara.

    PJH is what I meant. Everyone was at Kanye and I was at PJH dancing the night away. I just remember everyone was trying to get to Kanye early for the good spots, and I was like nah fuck that. I didn't even go to Kanye after PJH ended. I straight up went back to my camp site.

    So you skipped the Presets who were closing out the fest in style with probably one of the top few sets of the weekend. Yeah, great choice . . .
    Darkside (1/25)
    Oneohtrix Point Never (2/7)
    Four Tet (3/7) / Voices from the Lake (live) (3/7)
    London Grammar (3/25)
    Trentemoller (4/5)
    Factory Floor (4/15)
    Coachella (4/18-4/20)

    Bassnectar after Blur, Dog Blood shuts Sahara. I know it's "a what if" and isn't going to happen but where's the love for Hardwell? This kid is sick and is taking over EDM arguably the best act at Ultra but buried on a Sunday at Coach???? But honestly, who really cares 25 more days, so the site says!

    For my dance music money, I felt like the Mojave was where the old schoolers were getting down to Leftfield. Classic analog sounds. One of Sunday's dance music highlights.

    ALL DANCE MUSIC IS ELECTRONIC, YOU IDIOTS
    When I first heard the term "EDM", I wasn't sure what it stood for. I assumed the "M" probably stood for music, maybe the "E" was European or eclectic, And the "D" could have been "digital", a reference to it being created on laptop software, perhaps. What I did not expect, however, was something as blitheringly obvious as "electronic dance music". It seemed like calling a genre "guitar rock" or "trumpet ska".

    All dance/house/bass music is electronic. Just say it to yourself; Electronic. Dance. Music. It sounds like somebody's great aunt attempting to talk about Moby's new album, or a clueless country police chief answering questions about a rave he's trying to shut down. It makes you sound like novices, and stupid novices at that. So go think of something else to call Afrojack.

    Wish I could take credit for the above paragraph but i can't... Coachella is not a RAVE and no dj's should close the festival on the main stage unless Larry Levan rose from the grave.

    Everyone knows what EDM is. it's just an easy catch-all term, the same way 'electronica' used to be used. it's better than using a genre term like 'techno' to blanket-describe it. Nobody here using EDM as a way to describe any one particular genre. And not all dance music is electronic, either.
