    I was challenged a few years ago to right click and delete his discography from my external.

    The act I'm most excited to see on Sunday. I've wanted to see him play since I found him in 2005, but it's sad to hear he doesn't play the old stuff he used to. Always wanted to hear "Praise You" proper

    If his set was "cheesy" in 08 which was before this annoying prog house movement then I would suggest those who thought it was "cheesy" then to def stay away. I saw him at hard 3 years ago and thought it was fun... but nothing like his brighton beach days.

    Cool Re: Fatboy Slim

    I wish he would play a retro set with some of his old stuff. Coachella might be the one American festival where he could do that and not have a half-empty tent but perhaps that's wishful thinking. He's paid to fill the tent and make the kids dance, and so that probably means just snippets of his old stuff. Oh well, I'll almost surely be there anyway.

    I could actually see Fatboy Slim doing some old school throwback stuff in his Coachella set.

    I really hope he does.......Need to see 'Praise You' in the Sahara

    you're an idiot. Muse is doing their 20th anniversary tour, no way they would accept skrillex closing after them nor would golden voice make such an idiotic move. More likely is that skrillex would play the MainStage akin to justice's spot in 2012

    I skimmed through the video. Yikes. I had him as a "maybe" for me, but now I think I'll just pass for sure if his sets are like that.

    His set in 2008 was Super fun. The intro was fantastic and led right into that aqua sky song. Kalifornia and Love Island wer awesome. I even lied te huge closin with praise you.. Mixed with a beyonce song I think but it worked ou well
    Superfan will be in front of the Fonda masturbating furiously to a photo of him taking a photo of a band. Set is from 8:05 to approximately 8:05:15. Guest list only.

    Upcoming Shows: Marques Wyatt - UCLA, Paul Mccartney - Dodger Stadium, Yes - Greek Theater, Herbie Hancock - Hollywood Bowl, NIN/Soundgarden - Hollywood Bowl, Cut Chemist/Dj Shadow - Palladium, Massive Attack SB Bowl

    How long of a set do you think Fatboy will get? Usually 2nd to last in Sahara don't get more than an hour or so. Maybe 75 min.

    This is why it's possible that Skrillex could be on the main

    Watched that Ultra video for about 10 minutes and I'm not impressed at all. Wish he would stick to his catalogue, really upset he doesn't play more of his old stuff...

    If there's no conflict I guess I'll stop by and see what he's decided to spin.

    That Ultra set seems fun but I'd kill to see his hits, not random snippets of his hits over cheesehouse.

    Many times. Good God do some research. This is not uncommon at all.

    I'm in agreement with most of the post here. If you look up anything from the past few years its horrible. All mainstream music he plays and I think were all interested in hearing his older sounding sets. I don't even know if he really "dj"s when on stage.

    I had the chance to see him before but passed for better. its a shame he never does live sets like underworld or orbital could. he's got a few gems from back in the day. Its bullshit these guys are getting a free pass being a "big name" act booked. All he does is probably bring a flash drive play for 2 hours, grabs his check and bounces. Its a shame.
