Passion Pit have to be on the main.
Passion Pit have to be on the main.
Divine Fits are on way too early.
Could I get the set time template?
Im starting to think Passion Pit conflicting with Stone Roses or Blur makes way too much sense. Remember in 2010 when everyone assumed Vampire Weekend would be on the main, but instead played the Outdoor? I think the same thing will happen with Passion Pit this year.
920-1010 passion pit
810-900 lou reed
7-750 band of horses
as for the irrelevant change in the sahara, nicky romero will never go on before 5:00. He's been blowing up and he works with avicii and the other big name dis. Romero should switch spots with mode step.
Ya, there is no way Nicky Romero play that early.
Coachella: 4/10-12 @ Empire Polo Fields
U2: 6/28 @ United Center
also, any chance of infected mushroom, with their new stage setup, closes the sahara? We've seen lower billed edm acts close the sahara multiple times
I disagree with switching Passion Pit and Grinderman. Passion Pit works as excellent counter-programming to Blur/ Stone Roses, whereas a lot of people who want to see Grinderman will probably also want to see Blur/ Stone Roses.
^ I don't get how you think its counter programming. They are playing the bulk of their set to a silent MainStage. Everyone who wants to see grinder man will be able to, they might just miss the first 5 minutes of the Roses (you wont even have to worry about traffic between the outdoor and main b/c according to all of you, the crowds will be the smallest in years for SR).
Poppy Dance Acts like Passion Pit historically play before 11, and they never play up against the headliners
Saturday 2012: Miike Snow 10-11
Sunday 2012: Girl Talk 830-920
Sunday 2011: Chromeo 830-920
Saturday 2011: Empire of the Sun* 1030-1120
Sunday 2011: Crystal Castles 830-930
Saturday 2010: MGMT 850-940
Sunday 2009: Roni Size* 1030
Saturday 2008:Mark Ronson 830-930
I don't think Passion Pit are too big for the outdoor necessarily, but putting them on the outdoor anytime around the headliners will result in Pavement/Phoenix part deux. Not to mention they've played most of their recent festival appearances in daylight on the biggest stage.
In any case, Passion Pit is fucking awful.
1/11 Tamaryn @ The Echo, 1/20 Elton John @ Caesars Palace, 2/14 Sparks @ The Ace, 2/17 Emmy the Great @ DC9 (?)
I don't think that Jake Bugg and Skinny Lister will conflict since they are both British folky acts. I would swap Jake with either Lord Huron or Polica.
I agree mostly with the OP's predictions, but I think Dillon Francis would be later in the day. He's pretty big, you know!
See ya guys at Coachella 2013, Bros!! View my day job at https://github.com/sharksfan98
They will make sure the timing works out so that the Outdoor and one of the tents ends roughly at the same time to move traffic to Stone Roses. It's going to take heaven and earth to get a full Main Stage for Stone Roses...
This is Aesop Rocks 4th Coachella. He plaid to a packed Mohave vs Aphex Twin's sahara slot in 08, and he played the OT at night in 05. The Gobi will be fucking packed and overflowing if he is in there. Festival Aesop is sooooooo fucking good.
Of Monsters and Men is way to big to be playing the Mojave at 7pm
No they're not. Gotye and M83 played the Mojave last year around the same time and their singles were much bigger hits.
The Stone Roses- good to see them in the closing slot where they belong!
Main Stage looks good from Modest Mouse and on. Not completely sold on J5 being on the main though. Anybody think they will be on the outdoor? Maybe in tegan and Sarah's spot?
I agree with switching Grinderman and Passion Pit.
a Lee Perry/Japandroids conflict would make me want to eat glass.
