Thread: Can I do both New Order and Phoenix / R Kelly for Weekend 2?

    Default Can I do both New Order and Phoenix / R Kelly for Weekend 2?

    I want to see New Order very, very badly, but I also want to see Phoenix perform with R Kelly, which sounds hilarious and awesome. If I start out at New Order and then head to main stage partway through their set, can I still catch Phoenix/R Kelly? Is Phoenix's set only 50 minutes or an hour like everyone else's, or did they do a much longer set since they're headliners? Did anyone do this successfully at Weekend 1? I assume R Kelly came out near the end of Phoenix's set?

    If you are a New Order fan, you will not want to miss the set after BLT comes on...it was just amazing. But sure I don't see why you couldn't stand around the sides or the back to sneak out for a few minutes.

    Damn, so both bands saved their best material for the second half, it sounds like...

    Am I correct that both sets are the same length?

    R. Kelly only came out for one song or maybe part of one song.

    If you want a golden shower during R Kelly you're going to have to get close to the stage, he's got a 15-20ft range at max.

    It seemed that they all finished at the same time on Saturday. They should stagger them a bit better. Exiting was a bit too claustrophobic for me.

    If you have to choose one, go to New Order. They'll be dead soon.

    I bailed on New Order before they did the Joy Division encore in order to try to catch some of Phoenix. Made it for literally the last minute of the second time they played "Entertainment." Pretty sure they finished their set before New Order finished their's, and I wish that I had just stayed at New Order.
