The Faint were on the Outdoor in 2005 and just co headlined FYF last year. They can def be on the main or outdoor this year.
Dinosaur Jr's time makes sense to me.
Eric Prydz, 2h set, closing any stage. Do it.
Eric Prydz: EP/IC: 11/29 @ Aragon Ballroom
Coachella: 4/11-13 @ Empire Polo Fields
Mimosa, Kalkbrenner, Loco Dice would be a really nice late afternoon stretch. I approve of that.
Doin' it right. Everybody will be dancing. And we'll be feeling all right . . . If you lose your way tonight. That's how you know the magic's right
An early draft based on heart's spreadsheet. Also a couple tweaks to Friday and Saturday:
Here, these need a lot of work.
Move Pretty Lights to the Sahara.
Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds to the Pretty Lights slot on the outdoor. It would be criminal to have Nick Cave play right before the RHCP bro-fest. I see him getting an hour or so closing the Outdoor similar to PJ Harvey.
Move the Wu-Tang clan to the vacated NC&BS spot on the main.
Put Roni Size & Dynamite MC to New Stage. Move Rodriguez to his spot in the Gobi (really the only attendees to his set are going to be folks who have seen Searching for Sugarman).
I would put OMD in an afternoon slot on the Main/Outdoor (like James last year). I think the Gobi is too small for them. Dead Can Dance to take the closing slot on in the Gobi.
And finally, as others have mentioned, 10 minute changeovers are pretty ambitious. If you look at prior Coachella's or even the other two days the changeover times are always 20-25 minutes. I don't think I've seen one less than 15 minutes ever. So that needs to be sorted. best way to sort this out is figure out is cut into the set times for bands playing in tents earlier in the day (30/40 minute sets for bands playing before 3pm) and moving probably one act per tent to the new stage (e.g. Roni Size, etc).
Nick Cave is second billed, so he's opening for the brodeo, sadly.
I updated the original abortion of a lineup with Heart Cooks Brain's template. I will read through the thread and see if any suggestions have been made to that set up after I get back from a meeting.
Guys, I think we are WAY overthinking the new dance tent in most of the threads, but particularly this day.
Oakenfold --> Hardwell --> Excision --> Pretty Lights --> Prydz in the Sahara.
All five of those acts are billed for it, and have large fanbases. Let's do a thought experiment. Can any of these acts fit in the Gobi, due to crowd size, production size, or both. The answer is no. I think it is pretty reasonable to expect that the new dance tent will be no bigger than the current Gobi, and in fact, I'd say there is a strong chance it will be even smaller and be the size of the old Gobi.
Hardwell and Oakenfold can play in the day, easy. Nobody cares about Oakenfold that much anymore, and every festival video I've seen of Hardwell is in the daylight anyway. The other three can play at night. I think the five biggest dance acts will all play the Sahara, it just seems like a no brainer.
Hardwell is huge among the cheese-house spectrum, and people will come see Oakenfold because of the name. I just think both will be way too big for the new dance tent. I feel this way about Moby too, and probably Richie Hawtin. I think the segregating by taste level is more wishful thinking...I think it will be done by billing/drawing power.
It will all look pretty out of whack until we get some more concrete information on this new stage.
Why isn't Disclosure on this?
Pan-American, Keith Fullerton Whitman, Ken Camden, Tim Hecker - Loscil, Stars of the Lid - Andrew Bird - Chris Thile - Laurie Anderson w/ Kronos Quartet - Coachella 2014 W1 - Chick Corea/Bela Fleck - Philip Glass Ensemble - Philip Glass
Where's Disclosure? I can see them maybe fitting into a late Gobi/Mojave act, or maybe an opener for Oakenfold...
I seriously doubt Excision, and especially Hardwell will be on the new stage. Hardwell is going to have the biggest mid day Sahara audience of probably the entire weekend. I don't see why he'd play the new stage, when Dub Fx, Mimosa and Julio Bashmore could be thrown on the new stage instead.
Vampire Weekend switching with Wu Tang's spot makes a bit more sense I think.
And Disclosure screams late Gobi.
IT'S MY NEW COACHELLA 2013 MIX! 60 of this years artists in only 45 minutes!
I can't see Mord Fustang playing anywhere except the Sahara.
If we're assuming the new stage is electronic-themed throughout the rest of the weekend, why would Raider Klan play there?
