    WIn Butler is amazing. I love that he punked you idiots into believing Daft Punk was there. He was making fun of the EDM douchebags. Butler hinted this by dedicating a song to those bands that still play instruments.

And even if he is, he's still not nearly as big a twat as Liam Gallagher, Axl Rose, Justin Bieber, Courtney Love, Chris Brown, Fred Durst, Geoff Tate, Dave Mustaine, Kanye West, Ted Nugent, Morrisey, Lars Ulrich, Scott Stapp, Gene Simmons, 50 Cent, Robin Thicke, Ike Turner, Bono, Eric Clapton (dude's a hardcore racist from what I've heard), Gary Glitter, Ian Watkins, Tim Lambesis, Scott Weiland, and Phil Spector.
    Can you elaborate on the Clapton racist connection? I am sad his son died, but I have never been a fan of hims music. I know next to nothing about his personal life, he is similar to other bands I ignore like Bread.

    YOu will love this article. http://www.thedailybeast.com/article...all-costs.html but I still love Coachella. Win Butler just wants the balance of Coachella to swing back to real bands, not Djs hitting "play." Also, Coachella's music should be the focus, not the background. It was, is and always should be first a MUSIC FESTIVAL!!!

    A "quarter the size". I thik that is a tremendous exaggeration. If I am wrong, I would love to see proof from Google Earth shots of the crowds.

    EDIT: As I have said already, inviting yourself to headline the biggest festival in NA and possibly the world, is the most twatish VIP sentiment I have ever heard.
    Where is the proof he invited himself? Also, doesn't a legal contract require an offer, acceptance and consideration. Just in case Butler asked to headline this year, isn't it true Goldenvoice could just say "no"?

    LOL
    He was making fun of Daft Punk. He punked a bunch of idiots who ran to the stage. Those robots on Sunday were not the same height as the real Daft Punk.

    I don't think their humility is "fake", I just think they are not afraid to state an opinion publicly. Too many celebrities either have nothing to say or are ill informed when trying to make some sort of statement. I have not doubt Butler knew what he was talking about.

    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    I stopped taking that article seriously when they talked up 2011 and mentioned Kings of Leon, The Black Keys, and Mumford and Sons as a way of talking about how great the festival is and then whining about how bad it is. Seriously, they couldn't have mentioned Big Audio Dynamite? Duran Duran? PJ Harvey? The National? Broken Social Scene? Death From Above 1979? 2011 was a great year but not because of the acts they mentioned.

    You are right. In 2011, there was that triple conflict between Suede, Wire and Big Audio Dynamite.

    I don't know how many people eventually ended up at the main stage for Beck and Arcade Fire, because I was near the front, but the crowd for Calvin Harris was one of the largest I've ever seen at Coachella.

    Quantity does not equal quality.
