    Default The Faint

    Caught them at FYF last Summer and they blew my mind. Having listened to them for years they really delivered in LA and hopefully will do he same in the Desert. Hoping they get a night set on the Outdoor against a larger act.

    i saw them in december in new york, after not seeing them for about 6 years, and they were absolutely amazing. was really hoping they'd be on the lineup. i think they'll put them in the cut copy 2011/the rapture 2012 slot. night time dance party. let's hope!

    This will be my first and second times seeing them. Pretty excited for these guys and The Descendents. A real blast from the past!

    SO happy they're on the lineup. Been a fan for a very long time and FYF was the first time I saw them live - NO disappointment. Played a ton of songs, covering their whole catalog. Great energy and kept the crowd dancing.

    What the fuck is this?


    I've seen them four times and they never disappoint. One of the funnest bands I've ever seen live.
    Where's Underworld and Mew? Make it happen GV.

    These guys put on 2 of the greater shows I saw in the early 2000's, then they started to suck really bad I thought. I'll for sure check out some of their set because you guys say they are rockin again (as long as they aren't playing any of their new shit :-P)...wasn't all that excited at first. Thx.

    I'd be willing to bet they close out the Mojave sunday night. Like the Presets in 2011.

    Since they are coming off their Danse Macabre tour I imagine it is still a part of their set lists, I would expect to hear it at Coachella. Definitely one of my favorite parts of the show in November.

    This ain't no middle of the mall shit.

    Big fan of the Faint but have not had a chance to see them live. I hope no conflicts with Dead Can Dance/Nick Cave or OMD!

    I want to dance my ass off!

    I've been a long time fan of these guys. I've seen them at least 7 or 8 times. Always fun! I just wonder why Joel isn't in the band anymore...

    I've seen them about 20 times (I live in Omaha where they're from) and they kill it every single time. They played an outdoor festival here 2 years ago and as expected, amazing. BEST. LIVE. ACT. EVER. Can't wait to dance and sweat my ass off!

    cant wait for this one. stealth on the lineup and i just remembered they were on it when the set times released, and they are one of the VERY FUCKING FEW picks of mine that arent being slaughtered by ridiculous conflicts.
