Eric Prydz stage/time confirmation, put Dead Can Dance back in the Mojave to close out (by popular demand), moved Disclosure into the Gobi, La Roux back to night time outdoor, and Tame Impala main at 5. I wasn't sure about Tame Impala because they played about the same time slot last time and Lonerism is doing better than InnerSpeaker, but I guess going from Outdoor to Main Stage is enough of a bump.
I'm sure this has been discussed but what's the logic behind Ghost BC closing the Gobi?
The Knife: 4/9 @ Fox Theater
Coachella: 4/11-13 @ Empire Polo Fields
So, I've never paid any attention at all to the artist signings while at Coachella, but the way the acts are currently listed on the Record Store Day page has me wondering:
They're not listed in alphabetical order, and they're not in order of billing. Could this be a preliminary schedule of signings - and if so - give some hint as to what time of the day some acts might play?
We know Prydz is closing Sunday (and I assume Phoenix is closing Saturday), so it makes sense that their signings would be scheduled early, as listed. Bands like DIIV, Father John Misty, Wild Belle, Deap Vally and Vintage Trouble are listed last, and it'd make sense that they'd be earlier in the day. A few make less sense - Two Door Cinema Club, FOALS, and Purity Ring are listed toward the end of their days, which might imply earlier than expected sets?
Anyone remember what time these signings typically start and stop each day?
I'm probably thinking far too much about this...
The initial list was in billing order. The subsequent adds have been mostly to the bottom, except for Phoenix.
2/9 SISU @ Echoplex, 2/14 Spiritualized @ Ace Hotel, 2/16 Kyary Pamyu Pamyu @ Club Nokia, 2/24 Cibo Matto @ El Rey, 3/21 St. Vincent @ Wiltern, 4/11-13 Coachella, 4/27 Ghost B.C. @ Fonda, 4/30 Mono @ Troubadour, 5/3 I Break Horses @ Bootleg Theater, 5/28-6/1 Primavera Sound, 6/22 Janelle Monae @ Hollywood Bowl
We know RHCP and Eric Prydz are closing out their respective stages, and Ghost BC makes sense as good alternative. This is due to the type of music they play, and the fact that they perform in costumes, which would look goofy in the day time.
tame impala and lumineers shold be swapped
Ghost playing at night seems like a huge dark horse. Do they have a large enough fan base to warrant it? Most of their live clips that I found, including a set at Metallica's Orion Fest, were daytime sets.
Is there any other option for Social D? Kind of a dull Outdoor closer IMO

The Replacements - Bryan Ferry - Outkast - The Knife - Dum Dum Girls - Jon Spencer Blues Explosion - Broken Bells - Haim - Neko Case - Jagwar Ma - Goat - Waxahatchee

Excision has the executioner stage. No way in hell they can set that up and tear it down in 20 min. He will get shadows spot from last year
shpongletron in 2011 tho
^ nice find!
Figured he'd play the Sahara
I want to see this set change around from the executioner into pretty lights led buildings.
I'd switch Maya Jane Coles with Loco Dice
