    So glad that this has finally happened.

    Definitely agree. One of my most anticipated acts of this year.

    Definitely one of the less offensive KROQ-type acts on here. Hit-or-miss live, they were really fun when I saw them in 2011 and then they were boring as hell half a year later. I'll catch this if nothing else is going on.

    I've seen them 3 times now and they do not disappoint. You do not want to miss them.

    They were a good time at the KROQ Red Bull session a few months ago. Definitely going to catch them.

    Could they be in a Foals-esque slot, closing a stage? Their light show is not a necessity compared to some other acts, but it definitely adds to the pulsing dance tunes.

    I'd say they'll be in a tent? What does everyone else think? Lorde back to back with Naked and Famous would be awesome (just because).

    Loved them at the wiltern a few years ago. Girlfriend is making me watch them. Not upset at all

    Looking forward to what these guys have done with themselves over the last few years. Haven't seen them since a small club night gig back in 2009!

    I only watched their set from the webcast, but they sounded phenomenal. Really pumped to see it live at weekend 2. The best audio from the main stage that I've heard all weekend.

    I agree. I only expected to watch them for a few minutes, but ended up watching the whole thing.

    The first time I saw them was when they played a 40 min set at the SB Bowl and it was pretty boring, but this time they were really fucking good and I'm glad they got moved to Sunday

    They were my sleeper hit of the year. I had no idea who they were and got dragged to their set, ended up being one of the more memorable acts I saw. And it doesn't hurt that the lead singer is just ridiculously pretty, and seemed like a real sweetheart on top of it.

    Saw them from far away as Blood Orange was ending, I definitely enjoyed the bit of their set I saw. Probably wouldn't see them on their own, but a festival setting is perfect for them.

    I'm not sure why so many people were not familiar with them. Their debut was probably one of the better albums of 2010. They played SF and LA in 2011 the week of Coachella with two bands who both played Coachella that year. I didn't understand why they weren't playing as well.

    I didn't recognize the singer at first because she changed her hair cut and color drastically! Anyway, I thought this set was okay, I liked them the last time I saw them better.
