    Default With such an amazing electronic undercard...

    Let me get this out of the way, I absolutely fucking LOVE what GV did with the electronic acts this year, spot-on, couldn't have been much better at all.

    That being said, how do you guys think it's all going to be organized? With the amount of quality underground names matching (if not outnumbering) the "EDM" cheese bullshit, what's going to happen with the Sahara? Obviously the trash is going to get swept into there, but I'm kinda wondering if anything good gets thrown in too. There seems to be almost a full days worth of the usual Sahara acts on each day, so will the Mojave become the official grown-up dance tent?

    And where is the amazing house crew (Loco Dice, Jamie Jones, Julio Bashmore, Maya Jane Coles, etc.) going to end up on Sunday?

    Pretty curious as to how this wealth of great music gets distributed.

    They confirmed on the cruise that there will be a new stage. No idea the size, or if it will be themed, but that should help spread things out.

    I was sure there would be the usual cheese and maybe a new dance tent. But I don't see enough cheese dance music on the lineup to fill the Sahara for 3 days. I don't know what'd going on but I am excited.

    The Mojave does often get the less mainstream electronic acts.

    Curious to hear more about this new stage whenever they decide to announce it.

    This is so new and exciting... Except I hate speculating on it all for months, drives me nuts. As for the Sahara, there seems to be around 8-9 surefire prospects in there each day, so I doubt many of the quality acts would get tossed in.

    A new stage/tent would be amazing, my only fear is that I might never leave...

    I think your Sub Sahara or South Sahara (or whatever you want to call it) wish could come true.

    Was wondering the same thing after I saw the fantastic electronic under card. Do they get stuck in Sahara, and if so, do they all get pushed into the day time while cheese dominates the nights? I hope not...

    No way Richie Hawtin is playing before the sun goes down.

    Even the cornball shit this year is better than the cornball shit last year... the whole shift is kind of blowing my mind, it's crazy to me that they got so many actual legit DJs a year after booking seemingly every single cheesy anthem house dude on the planet. I bet there's a huge number of kids who are trying to sell their presales and go to Ultra, honestly.

    Guys. The Sahara tent has not always been nothing but shit. That was a recent development.

    This could just be a return to form for the tent. I feel like there isn't enough cheese to fill the Sahara all weekend, so I doubt the new tent will be strictly EDM.

    It seriously cannot be overstated how well GV did booking electronic music this year. This more than makes up for last year. I can't wait to go in the Sahara again.

    Boom
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    Saw Julio Bashmore, what about the rest of the dirtybird crew? I thought they were a lock.

    There's still rumors of a Dirtybird-curated tent, similar to the Do Lab which is why we don't see them on the initial lineup.

    Jamie XX, Julio Bashmore, Disclosure, DJ Harvey, Four Tet are stellar bookings. I applaud the effort to book some proper house/techno, even if the result was largely predictable and generally safe.

    Thrilled w/ what appears to be a genuine change in direction.

    Does this mean more bros will gravitate to the other tents this year? Sahara's bro-magnet status left lots of space for guitar-heads like me. Damn.
