Thread: NMH and Calvin Harris

  1. #1

    Default NMH and Calvin Harris

    So I was disappointed to see Calvin Harris in a spot I think would have been great for NMH. A lot of NMH fans, including myself, would want to see Beck and Arcade Fire. And Calvin Harris fans are just going to run from the Sahara tent, see Calvin Harris, and then run back.

    And why do I have to sit through Blood Orange and the 1975 for NMH!! *sigh*

    I actually think that Neutral Milk Hotel getting the Outdoor sunset slot is perfect.

    The time works, it will be cool seeing them at sunset; I'm just not sure it is the best for fans.

    You inadvertently answered your own question. The goal of Coachella is not to be walled up at one stage all day long. Move around, enjoy stuff. Paul clearly wants traffic on the grounds.

    The crowd movement from stage to stage helps people like me get to the front.

    I agree with Tucson, Outdoor/sunset is perfect. They would get swallowed up on the main stage. When we saw them in SLC, they also didn't allow the monitors which would make the Main stage even worse.

    Why would he do a live set when he gets paid more for a DJ set? Fucking idiot.

    I think this is part of the idea. If you have too many like-minded fans in one stage, other fans can't get close. Your own personal convenience is trumped by the idea that most people don't want people camped in front of one stage.

    You're seriously mad about seeing Blood Orange?

    What's wrong with you?

    I saw Calvin Harris like 7-8 years ago, he was awesome. Felt like he was on to something musically even if every song didn't work.

    Saw him at Coachella a couple years ago, it was complete and total garbage. I left after 15 minutes. Missed Rihanna, who gives a fuck?

    Then I covered HARD: Haunted Halloween Day of the Dead or whatever it's called as a photographer and saw a big chunk of his set, it was surprisingly not worse. It had nothing to do with the "Calvin Harris" from years ago, but he played a very well planned out set that got people dancing. I won't be seeing him a Coachella, as we could probably predict his set in this thread, but I can understand why GV wants to put him in that spot on the main stage. I don't remember any similar placements, which is part of the appeal I guess.

    That's the one I was thinking of, but I couldn't recall if it was Main or Outdoor. Probably because I was off to the right, standing next to some ravers who were even more impatient than I was. That was one of the biggest missed opportunities for an act I've seen at Coachella as the crowd was Amped Up, the sun was setting beautifully, and their equipment failed or whatever.

    Right? Two fears going into Sunday were A) a Blood Orange conflict, and B) not getting a good spot for NMH. Both fears were unfounded. Fantastic back-to-back.

    When I saw them a few months ago they were a lot louder than I expected. I think as long as you're not on the fringes of the crowd you should be alright. It's not like his solo set from a few years ago. When they have 10 people on stage all playing at once it'll drown out the Calvin Harris garbage. Only song I see sound bleed being a problem is Oh Comely.

    No worries. That was a concern of mine as well until I took a closer look. The more I think about it, the more sense this arrangement makes, all things considered.

    The crowd at Calvin Harris' set was incredible. It was completely packed all the way to the back and the beer garden and even VIPs were packed like sardines. I'm not a fan of this guy and didn't find his set to be anything extraordinary, but jeez does he have fans.

    I'd go as far to say it was a bigger crowd than OutKast for biggest of the weekend.

    yes. awesome.

    terrible idea to have lana del rey after them though. having a flood of 17 year olds stampeding in at the end of NMH was poor planne
