Thread: Empire of the Sun or Galantis??

  1. #1

    Default Empire of the Sun or Galantis??

    One bummer of a conflict I'm wrestling with is Empire of the Sun at Sahara (what?!) vs Galantis at Gobi. I haven't seen either before. I know the crowd will definitely be better anywhere besides Sahara. Wondering how the live act that I've been hearing Empire of the Sun puts on translates to Sahara. Help me make my decision. Thoughts from anyone else??

    If you havent seen Empire of the Sun i suggest checking them out. Galantis i might check out to see what the deal is, but if it is only ok i will be walking to EOTS.

    EOTS is an amazing live act. They dont just put on a show, but a spectacle.

    Empire has played the sahara before methinks. I'd go with EOTS. I'm expecting a DJ set from Galantis with above average progressive house and maybe a guest singer or 2.

    Why wouldn't they have put EOTS in the Mojave and Galantis in the Sahara? So weird.

    THIS. I was really excited for Galantis but now that they're in the Gobi...hopefully without the DoLab drowning out all the sound this year the tent will be better...sound quality was horrible last year.

    My major conflict over this is Galantis vs. Sleigh Bells.

    Thanks for the responses everyone! I think I've made up my mind to see EOTS. Crossing fingers that Galantis will make a tour stop in Northern CA at some point.

    Plenty of bands have played in the Sahara. Sahara used to be cool. If you have not seen Empire live I suggest you do so. After seeing the twice, both shows being great, i am pretty over them. Queens of the Stone Age is where I'll be
    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: Nocturnal Wonderland Saturday, Cut Chemist/Dj Shadow - Palladium, Massive Attack SB Bowl, Festival Supreme, Coachella 2015

    Ok gotcha. This will only be my 3rd Coachella and from what I remember last 2 years in Sahara were almost exclusively DJs not live/band sets. I saw Booka Shade (liveset) last year at Gobi and figured EOTS would play a similar stage, not Sahara. Have fun at Queens of the Stone Age, that was a tempting one for me too.

    A bit late to the party but I would see Galantis personally. EOTS will be around and always tour, seeing Galantis play in that setting would be a better experience IMO.
