Thread: Coachella Meltdown - Who Will It Be in 2013?

    Default Coachella Meltdown - Who Will It Be in 2013?

    So, probably some of my favorite moments in Coachella history have been the many artist meltdowns that occur. I was fortunate enough to catch both M.I.A's disaster in the Sahara that one year, and Ariel Pinks freak out in 2011. I unfortunately missed Cee Lo's on the main stage...

    Who will it be in 2013? thoughts?

    I can see SpaceGhostPurrp melting down if anyone in the crowd mentions A$AP. Or also just because he's a paranoid, neurotic nutball.

    Also, Danny Brown almost popped a dude at his Echo show, after inviting the guy onstage with him, because he thought the guy was trying to put his hand in his pocket. My GF is now scared of Danny Brown and refuses to go to his set. True story.

    yeah, this was hilarious in person. but he's done it countless times before. can't remember who it was last year, but I wandered into the Gobi (I think) and the keyboard player suddenly started his I tunes playing during the song...the band was pissed to say the least lol.

    C.Lo was hilarious! And he didn't even have a right to be mad! Started playing SUPER late and then gets mad because they wouldn't give him more time. Please. And then plays journey...? no. Funny though. Lauryn Hill killed it after his shitty set.

    The best Coachella meltdown is the original Coachella meltdown. Pavement 1999.

    Mrs. Reznor's gig could go either way.

    The biggest meltdown that non one talks about is Glasvegas in 2009. A cocaine bender and a Brit falling asleep while sunbathing was a bad mix. Despite all members being present they didn't even take the stage and the cancellation not announced until showtime.

    Cat Power was having kind of a freak out when she was touring behind her "Greatest" album...I remember her hiding on the side of the stage in the middle of songs and doing weird shit like covering her face with all her hair and singing behind it as if it were a mask.

    So wait, they never played? I remember a lot of hype around them.

    I was backstage during this set and even Cee Lo's band and singers who were on time were pissed that he was so late. When he arrived I think he was surprised that they insisted he keep to schedule, and he was a little bitch about it. But hey if Lauryn Hill can be on time, no one has any excuse.

    Cee Lo was right, putting him on during the daytime was fucking bullshit. They did the same fucking thing to Badu and Lauryn. That was the year Coachella's set times were racist. If Cee Lo had been on the Outdoor at night, it would have been a fucking dance party.

    A fucking dance party? Maybe for the mid-life crisis crowd.

    Cee-Lo was late for High-Five festival and completely missed his set. Totally bailed on a festival in Alberta that September and also bailed on the Rihanna tour that summer.

    There's a reason this guy doesn't do national headlining tours.

    Ariel Pink's planned meltdown was a brilliant marketing ploy.

    No, because he was also terrible in the evening at Lollapalooza. Possibly the worst show I've ever seen anywhere.

    Can that even fairly be described as a "meltdown" at this point? That's just Cat Power doing what Cat Power does...putting on terrible shows.
