    or kind of blows because a good portion of our ticket money goes towards those DJs playing repeating countless shit.

    SMART
    Muse - What better way to be safe, they sell out all their LA shows, you get a killer performance, and that 20th anniversary builds hype.
    The Knife - People have wanted them to return to Coachella for years. Hipsters love em too.
    Queens of the Stone Age - No better rock band to represent the desert.
    Calvin Harris - He's become one of the most iconic DJs and those ravers love him.
    Beck - This will be an epic set and a great way to showcase his old and new songs

    DUMB
    Arcade Fire - Safe, boring choice, and the new album is overrated
    Pharrell Williams - He's become the new image of a one hit wonder as a lead with Get Lucky, nothing else really matters anymore. Stupid hat.
    Girl Talk - Terrible artist and I don't understand what style of music he's going for. Was 2012 that long ago?
    Lana Del Rey - She's really boring and she dates ugly guys.
    Motorhead - Probably will cancel last minute, hence no replacement.

    MISSED
    Spoon - They're playing a bunch of other festivals and belonged at this one
    Massive Attack - Perfect year to get them.
    The National - Everyone fucked up.
    Depeche Mode- Should of been the Sunday headliner
    Pixies - Makes no sense what happened.

    This was harder than I expected, Ellie Goulding has awful taste too. Finally dug up Alisa Xayalith and Thom Powers of the Naked and Famous who I guess are a couple as well. Powers has great hair, so he's approved

    "mbv still"? They've played before, a year within first reuniting....so I really wouldn't call them a "miss", though I'd love to have them back.

    2012 NA tour

    &


    They had to cancel the last NA summer tour, and HARD summer date. They'll probably be back pretty soon though I imagine.

    After seeing some of the additions to Moogfest, I'd update my "missed" to include Moderat, Machinedrum, Blondes, Kraftwerk, Chic, Georgio Morodor.

    1. Liars - Last Two Albums Are Incredible. Yeah Their Early Albums Weren't THAT accessible But WIXIW and Sisterworld Would Make For An Amazing Late Night Set.
    2. Fuckbuttons - Totally Thought This Would Happen This Year. You Missed The Boat On This One GV.
    3. NIN - Easily The Most Visually Stunning Show (Aside From Sigur Ros) That I've Seen In The Past Few Years (Or Maybe Ever.)
    4. Underworld - What Can I Say? GV needs To Make This Happen Before One Of These Shitty EDM festivals Does. They Made Outkast Happen. Surely They Can Do This Too.
    5. Django Django - Should Have Been Here In 2013. Can't Believe They Were Overlooked Again. At Least We Have Jagwar Ma.

    Smart
    1. Woodkid - I Didn't Even Know Who This Was Before The Poster, But If We Get Anything Close To The Orchestral Stuff I've Seen Online This Will Easily Be One Of The Best Sets Of The Weekend.
    2. GOAT - Another Band I Didn't Know, But This Should Be Incredible.
    3. QOTSA - Happy To See A Decent Amount Of Rock On The Lineup And Stoked To See These Guys Leading The Pack.
    4. Trombone Shorty/Preservation Hall Jazz Band - nice To See This Kind Of Diversity On The Lineup. My Only Regret Is That I May Not Make It In Time To See These Early Sets.
    5. Outkast - The Fact That They Are Playing Something Like 40 Other Festivals Takes A Little Steam Out Of The Booking, But At Least We Get Them First!

    Dumb - I Could Go On For Days...
    1. Dillon Francis - Sucked In 2013, Still Sucks In 2014
    2. Zedd - The Only Benefit Of This D-bag Being On The Lineup Is That Most Of The Other D-bags Won't Be Close To Me During This Timeslot.
    3. Martin Garrix - See #2
    4. Muse - What Can I Say That Hasn't Already Been Said? Lazy...
    5.Krewella, Et Al. - So Much Poppy BS that Sounds The Same This Year. Really Seems Like Effortless Booking This Year.
    6. Heineken/Newcastle - You Have A Festival Within A Couple Of Hours Of Some Of The Best Breweries In The World And The Best You Can Come Up With Is Heineken And Newcastle?

    Please Forgive My Phone's Need For Excessive Capitalization.

    EDIT: Oh Shit...Can't Believe I Forgot Skrillex. Just The Named Makes Me Queasy.

    Smart

    -Kid Cudi (clearly everyone is judging him for the only song they know...hey, I did too until I heard the entire Man on the Moon album)
    -Pharrell (I have zero interest in seeing him, but considering all of the potential guests he could have on stage with him...I think there will be a ton of anticipation for this)
    -Unlocking the Truth (would be fun to see such young talent, even if it isn't contributing in any way to ticket sales)
    -Trombone Shorty (don't know of any other artists in this genre that will be there)
    -Muse (fuck all the haters...their first 4 albums are GREAT, as well as their live performances)

    Dumb

    -Arcade Fire (overrated in my opinion)
    -Fatboy Slim (random...seems like this shoulda been in 2013 or 2000 for that matter)
    -Girl Talk (clearly no longer in fashion...if he ever was)
    -Skrillex (vom)
    -Dillon Francis (of all the acts they could have brought back from last year...it's ok though, I wouldn't have touched this set with a 10 foot pole to begin with)

    Missed

    -Alice in Chains (would it be that far-fetched?)
    -Arctic Monkeys (don't care much for them, but I was surprised to not see them on the bill)
    -Of Montreal
    -MIA
    -Cut Copy

    Some brief opinions:

    -Nobody hates "Pumped Up Kicks" more than me...seriously. But the rest of that album is actually really good. Houdini, Helena Beat, Don't Stop...just to name a few. I do agree they are too high up there though.

    -I love Oracular Spectacular (who doesn't?), but seeing how bad everyone says they are live, I'll probably end up skipping MGMT.
