Once again--I don't buy The XX are going to be on the main. Watch it happen, you fuckheads.
This was my first attempt at putting Sigur Ros on after Phoenix
New Order on the outdoor just seems weird to me. They scream main stage.

New Order is an old people act, it will go on the Outdoor.
1999 2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 2013
Yeah, not happening. New Order was a giant letdown the last time they played and they don't seem like a daytime act, therefore they're going on the Outdoor. Sorry, fuckheads.
I would never want to belong to any club that would have someone like me for a member...
I too think Outside Theater with a respectable sized audience.
Okay, here are my major points:
- Phoenix is a weak headliner and Sigur Rós is a strong sub-headliner. Ultimately, more people will be interested in seeing Phoenix, but that doesn't mean Sigur Rós will necessarily be relegated to opening for Phoenix because, you know what? Sigur Rós would be a terrible opener in any situation.
- I may be indulgent in giving Sigur Rós ninety minutes, but Phoenix isn't a band that needs more than and seventy-five. Bankrupt! is their fifth album, yes, but how many songs could be considered Phoenix essentials that havta get played? The answer is just two.
- And while I honestly think The Postal Service would be a more appropriate headliner than Phoenix, if they played all of Give Up and the two new bonus tracks, that'd be just over fifty minutes. They don't justify a longer set.
- New Order can't close Outdoor. If I'm right and they Sigur Rós closes main, New Order would sound bleed during Sigur Rós' quieter bits. And if Phoenix closes, there's no way GV would create an obvious clash of dancey poppy conflict of Phoenix and New Order. The xx makes way more sense - yes, they're more popular than any of us understand, but closing the main isn't that bad of a consolation prize, and I think a band that is excitingly mellow like them makes sense for ending a night.

ayyo check out some of my Coachella 2013 pics:
So Phoenix will walk on stage while The Postal Service is finishing their last song?
My face when I saw your set times
Remembering 10 years of blink-182's iconic untitled record
When was Sigur Ros confirmed for the main stage?
I thought it was just educated guessing at this point though, no? Or did someone actually email their management or some shit?
Damn if Booka Shade is booked against that many acts at the end of the night their set is gonna be empty.
