    Though this is all subjective/objective , I thought New Order just seem to be phoning it in nowadays. Maybe they're just bored with having to keep playing their greatest hits over and over ad nauseum. And whoring out the Joy Division tracks must have Ian Curtis rolling in his grave.Maybe they need to beg Peter Hook to come back..."all is forgiven".....

    Did you see them Weekend 1? I thought their sound was terrible as well. But I couldn't tell if I was in a weird sound pocket or not. The wind was doing crazy things with a few sets throughout the weekend. I finally figured it out at Portugal the Man and just moved back behind the speakers and they sounded great.

    I can't say worst, but saddest was Rodriguez. The sound level was criminally low. My buddy started almost crying because he was certain it was the last time he'd ever get to see him play.

    Ugh. So many.
    - Modest Mouse was dissapointing and I'm surprised I haven't seen anyone mention how he fucked up the verses on a few of their songs.
    - RHCP's audio was terrible. The ronchy white guys who are in charge of audio should've been doing their job before the set instead of trying to sweet talk myself and some other girls before the Wu Tang set.
    - Johnny Marr was ehh for me. I was expecting something else
    - Grimes :/

    **On a positive note, Jake Bugg, Cafe Tacvba, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Pretty Lights were great!!!

    Really? I thought Marr was an obvious talent and it seemed to me that the crowd enjoyed it. Grimes was good. She didn't mess up any of her sample triggers or synth parts and she was great vocally.

    Pretty Lights messed up 3-4 times within a span of like 15 minutes, where he botched the audio and messed up the flow.

    Youth Lagoon was the only band that I saw that didn't do it for me. They had a few good tracks that I got into but the energy in the room just wasn't there.

    I suggest doing your research and getting a good spot in the tents to fully enjoy the audio at its fullest.

    Vampire Weekend wasn't bad at all. Are you sure you were awake at the time? There were some bros in the crowd though that's for sure.

    Modest Mouse Week 2 was just as good as their Pomona show.

    RHCP set was awesome, at least from near the board.

    How do you mean? He didn't mug me or weigh down the public services system by partaking in its benefits without paying in to its funding.

    Kidding. Sorry guess I spelled it wrong. Set still blew

    Yeah, it seemed like he was playing well, but it was sound was way too low sadly... Really wished they would've turn it up a lot more for him.

    grimes voice audio was way too low
    i thought tame impalas voice audio was a little off too. (still loved their set though)
    Hardwell was awful, not that that should be surprising.
    HtDA was quite bad i thought.
    also major lazer

    I wanted to see what the hype was about concerning Earl Sweatshirt and his OF buddies. My assumption was true he sucks live, Tyler the creator came out for a song with him and said to the crowd "I hate fucking all of you" so turned around and left to finish Blurs set which I should have never left.

    We were walking by the Outdoor and Pretty Lights started Nirvana Nevermind - the actual song not even a remix or anything different - and then he basically just faded out that song and started playing a completely different song for 30 seconds and his set just ended? What was that.

    Rodriguez weekend 1 sucked, let's just all say it. The sound sucked, his performance sucked, his band mates sucked. Not what I was hoping for at all.

    paul kalkbrenner shouldn't have been in the sahara. The sound in there is really bad in there for his kind of music. A smaller tent or Yuma would have been far better.

    Yeah, it was Wknd 1 and it probably was the wind because the sound would keep almost shifting or cutting in and out. But I was in a similar spot for other acts on main stage and didn't have that issue.

    Disappointed by La Roux and the Faint. Not sure if their sound was off or what. I've seen the faint live a few times and I was pretty close to the front, but it just didn't do anything for me. So glad disclosure saved my Sunday night and ended it right.

Brian King is notoriously picky about the sound of his guitar, so it was actually an extremely fast sound check for the band. They were supposed to have 25 minutes for a soundcheck, and went onstage 20 minutes after James McCartney ended. So if you want to blame anyone, blame that cunt Justin Vernon.
    Well excuse them for trying to get their sound right.

    Modest Mouse was very disappointing Weekend 2. It sucked because I had to deal with the clusterfuck at the end...I almost had a panic attack lol. What happened to Dramamine?
