    Default Please have FATBOY SLIM close the main stage Saturday! NOT Muse.

    Tiesto did it, Chemical Brothers did it, Swedish House Mafia did it. Why not Fatboy Slim.... just saying...

    Probably because he hasn't had a popular single in over 5 years. I love me some Fatboy Slim, but I'd much rather see him in the Sahara.

    He'll play the Sahara. If anyone is going to close the Coachella Stage after Muse, it's Skrillex.

    It'll probably be Skrillex if anyone's closing. He's billed the highest and usually the electronic artist billed the highest closes the main. But who knows, maybe Calvin Harris will close the main on Sunday or Zedd will close on Friday (not like I want it to happen, by the way).

    Fatboy Slim is closing Sahara with some heavy visuals, and my body is ready for it

    How about a petition to play only funky house and big beat, like the good ol' days?

    Does anyone know the actual capacity of the new Sahara? At least 20k, I'm guessing. I'll be surprised if they deem the Sahara too small for Skrillex this year.

    I might even consider going to see him if he brought out some big beat from the gold old days, if only.

    Even with the upgrade, the Sahara is STILL not big enough for the crowd he will bring. He will probably close the main with Fatboy closing the Sahara.

    Neither Skrillex or Norman Cook deserve to close. Fatboy Slim is terrible. Terrible. His mixing is and always has been shit. His track selection is weak and predictable. I've never understood why he gets so many gigs. Skrillex is another phenomenon of failed proportions. "I hope he plays Banga-rang" (as i punch myself in the face). He'll get to drunk and train wreck like always. Chain smoke and head bang his stupid haircut while he pretends to turn knobs. Excision should have been booked and close the night. Or Hell, bring Bassnectar back. That never gets old.

    You know you fail to prove your point when you cite two shitty brostep acts.

    Far from Brostep. Jesus, the godfather of Brostep is Skrillex. I lived in miami the last 5 years and i've seen more than my fair share of tank top, sunglasses at night, there because they think its cool, assholes. I saw Bassnectar @ The Fillmore Maimi...it may have been the best electronic act i have ever seen(i promise i didnt just start listening to "techno" yesterday). I had zero expectations and it was magical. AND I was sober because i know what you're thinking.
    As far as Excision goes, he is 1000x better than Skrillex in production, genre variety and mixing ability. I saw him play the midnight slot in Miami club almost 4 years ago. Heard the name but never saw him live. Leveled the place. Bartenders were dancing, security were nodding heads. It felt like the 90's again. I will forever be a fan. If i have to feel like Mr Belding walking into The Maxx, then so be it.

    Bassnectar was quality from 2003-2008; after 2009 he went quickly to shit and went from his burner breaks to shitty brostep. Him and Excision makes me wonder how they can still draw a crowd from flogging a dead horse. At least Skrillex moved on from shitty brostep, can't say the same for those two.

    Used to like Excision too, btw.

    totally agree.. I actually just deleted over 1,000 dubsteps songs off my itunes.. Bassnectar was incredible before he went after the big boom.. Excision was the worst set I saw last year at coachella

    Why not Muse? If you say that Muse is cheesy or bad or (insert negative adjective here) but Fatboy Slim is not, you are hopeless. Muse is going to put on a show at least 10x better than Fatboy Slim, regardless of how you feel about either act.

    Cause it's not uncommon for the headliner on Saturday to not actually be the one closing the stage. Big name electronic artists close the main on Saturday a lot. I have no interest in Fatboy Slim or Skrillex whatsoever, I'll be seeing Muse unless they conflict with Mogwai, but I think one of them (almost certainly Skrillex) will be closing the main that night just based on what's happened historically.

    It's not uncommon? Because it has happened a few times?

    Also I don't need an explanation as to why a headliner COULD close the stage. When I said, "Why not Muse?" It was referring to the original poster's thread title, as it seems they are really against Muse (See: "NOT Muse.") and really pro-Fatboy Slim (See: Please have FATBOY SLIM close the main stage Saturday!")
