    It was a fucking crime how easily you could walk up to the front of the stage minutes before they came on. I underestimated how many retards actually believed Daft Punk might play during Phoenix.

    Although I will admit, while me and my girl were getting our minds blown by Sigur Ros, I occasionally would glance over at the Main stage "just in case". When I noticed some black dude on the screen on the Main, I instantly thought "holy shit, that might be Pharrel, about to perform Get Lucky with DP. We gotta get to the Main STAT!" As soon as we got close enough to realize it was R Kelly we u-turned straight back to Sigur Ros.

    I didn't originally plan on catching this set since I'll be seeing them at Sasquatch next month, but the festival guided me right up front for the entire thing and it ended up being one of the most emotionally draining and moving live music experiences of my entire life. I was frozen in place for the duration of the set and sat in silence for the rest of the night at my camp site. Absolutely stunning and beautiful in every possible way.

    I really enjoyed this set too but thought it was brought down a bit by the sound bleed from Phoenix. I'm surprised more people haven't mentioned this. We were on the far right side about 2/3 of the way up.

    Yeah I was bothered by the sound bleed too at least 4 times during the set when they were ending a song or it was a quiet build up. Kinda took me out of the whole experience.

    Agreed, hearing "1901" during quiet moments was really distracting, i can't imagine what the hell would have gone on in my head if i heard "Ignition"!

    besides that it was definitely my top set of the weekend, it was just so incredibly beautiful. every time i looked over at the people around me everyone's jaw was dropped in awe.

    sound bleed is why i would never be able to see Sigur Ros at Coachella. It'd drive me up the wall.

    i got scammed into seeing phoenix. What a piece of shit show that was. I would never be able to forgive myself for missing sigur ros if it weren't for seeing them last summer.

    If anyone at weekend 2 right now is able to grab a copy of Sigur Ros's record store day release I'm going to be insanely jealous. I feel like they will have good quantities.

    i knew full well sigur ros was the set to be at, however, sometimes you don't want to be that guy from the group thats always forcing the issue. I elected to just go with the flow and inevitably we met up with the main group to go see phoenix perform with daft punk ahem i mean r kelly.

    fucking incredible. as always. maybe not as good as OSL, but unreal regardless. was able to get a great spot, and like everyone else said, sound bleed only mattered in between songs.

    how many people were there? was so focused on the show that i didn't turn around once.

    I pretty much told my group to fuck off and I went to see Sigur Ros. Best set of the weekend.

    My buddies felt a little but disappointed by Phoenix.

    Yeah, this was a great set. I didn't let the sound bleed between songs annoy me. One of only a couple must sees of the weeked, and was not disappointed. A great way to end Saturday.
    Even though I look it, I'm not a cop.

    so glad I got Glosoli second song in . It's my favorite song in the world. I then caught the Booka Shade set and ran back for the last song. Best night of my life.

    I stayed from beginning to end for this set. It was the one set I was the most excited to see. I walked away at the end with chills going up and down my spine and goosebumps that lasted forever. For me, one of the best moments so far this year. Out of all the pictures I took during their set, this one is my favorite...

    I'm not sure if I like this picture or not, but this was definitely the most stand-out picture I took from the set. I am beyond excited to see a headlining set from them at the greatest venue on earth next month.

    they were pretty great. coming from a not so big fan but dig their sound, I very much enjoyed what I saw of their set before going to Booka Shade. it was an awesome 1-2 punch to end Saturday

    This is pretty much how the show looked to me in real life . . . easily one of the most terrifying and beautiful things I've ever seen. I was convinced that note he held from Festival wasn't real. Truthfully, I'm still not sure it was.
    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)

    when he held that note in detroit, i couldn't help but laugh. it's really not fair to other bands how good sigur ros is.

    That note during weekend 1 clocked in at exactly 60 seconds. How the fuck does that happen?
