    Default Robyn + Royksopp should headline a day

    Anyone who's had the privilege of seeing Robyn + Royksopp this tour knows they are more than deserving of a headlining set. I don't know exactly how big Robyn has gotten but I know "Call Your Girlfriend" and "Dancing on My Own" have permeated pop culture through SNL and Girls, and she was on the 2nd line in 2011 and has only become more popular in the intervening years. She played 3 new songs in San Francisco last night, which hopefully bodes well for the release of new material within the next year. That on top of the Do It Again EP with Royksopp, which is fantastic in its own right, would only aid her viability as a headliner even more, especially in a joint appearance with Royksopp. They sold out the Hollywood Bowl in 2011 and this year, so they certainly have a big enough fanbase in southern California, and really a headlining set is the only way Coachella could do justice to having them both perform. Their set last night featured 8 Royksopp songs, 9 Robyn, and 6 joint. I didn't look at my watch once but I imagine it was in the vicinity of 2 hours. They would be too big for the Mojave, the Sahara hasn't been the best fit for acts like them in years, and it would be unusual for a non-headlining act on the Main Stage or Outdoor Theatre to have a 2-hour set time. This has to be one of the acts that Goldenvoice prioritizes for inclusion in next year's lineup and giving them the top slot one of the days would be pretty forward-thinking for a major American festival.

    I won't be there in '15, so it probably will happen.

    they could be the headliner people (except somewhat damaged) think shouldn't be headlining.

    they'd be the best one of those ever, mind you. I support this.

    I just want them on the lineup. I couldn't give a fuck less if they headlined or not. By the way, do any of you that went to the bay area show have their set list?

    10/11 - Carolina Chocolate Drops @ Rialto Theater (Tucson, AZ)

    Thanks for filling in the title of "Work It Out," Zach. When I checked setlist.fm, that was listed as "unknown."

    And Jason, trust me, you want them to headline for the reasons I detailed. They (and everyone interested in seeing them) will be best served by having a full 90-120 minutes, which they won't get if they aren't headlining. Mind you, just seeing them at Coachella would be fantastic, but it would be undoubtedly better if they closed out a night.

    Looking forward to seeing the Hollywood Bowl show reviews come in.

    I just saw this shit. Lets stop jerking them off THAT hard. Royksopp was good. Robyn was great if you're gay. Would be a poorly attended headliner.

    Why oh why are Hollywood Bowl shows attended by jackasses that talk really loud instead of watching the band?

    Other than that, pretty good show.

    They sold out the entire west coast...I think you are underestimating who would be watching. It would definitely be better attended than the Stone Roses/Blur combo. I wasn't at the Hollywood Bowl show, but the SF show was fantastic. My only complaint is that it wasn't long enough. When they played the Bowl in 2013, they played for like 3 hours.

    I'd say if either is ever going to be on the top line, it would be them together, and in 2015. I'd rather it be these two then some goddamn teenage whore-friendly bullshit like Muse again.

    Yeah... I really wished they had skipped the opener and just done a longer set themselves... As my friends and I agreed walking out on Saturday night... We weren't mad at anything in the setlist... but still felt like a lot was missing.

    My only other complaint for the night was that I would have preferred Anneli Drecker doing vocals for Royksopp over Susanne Sundfor...

    Yes... clearly one has to have a predilection for dick in order to appreciate one of the best performers in the pop game right now.

    I guess it's a flaw in the setup. They need to do their individual stuff, but they want to do all of their stuff together. So each just does 8 or 9. It would be great if they ditched their opener and each did like, 15, and then came out and performed their joint work.

    It doesn't have to be a flaw in the setup though... I mean, even earlier you referenced the last Hollywood Bowl show... No opener, if I recall correctly, and looking back at setlist.fm... 30 songs performed total between the two of them (31 if you count the tease of Dancing Queen Robyn did... but... eh)... vs 24 on Saturday night... That difference would probably have made the difference between leaving completely satisfied vs feeling like things were left out...

    Don't ya'll get silly thinking these two can headline coachella. It would be awesome but it just wouldn't happen. Best bet would be on them closing the outdoor stage

    Royksopp was fun. Royksopp should headline a tent. They should keep Robyn somewhere else so that everyone who wants to hear some stuff that sounds like teeny-bopper pop can go do that and let Royksopp layer sick beats without her.

    Sad that no one really paid attention to/liked the opener. Zhala is great, and Robyn is clearly ecstatic about her so there you go. If The Knife released her music, people would go crazy.

    Great show anyhow.

    I ended up pretty much missing the opener... Would have been interested in checking her out. But it should be noted that the comments in here about the desire for a lack of opener shouldn't be seen as a slight on Zhala. More just the desire for longer sets from the two main acts in a setup like this...

    After having blur/stone roses, arcade fire, black keys, gorillaz, and so many other "shouldn't be headliner" acts headline, I fail to see your argument.

    I was at the Bowl last night and would love to see a return visit on the Polo Field. However, they won't headline. The only scenario by which I'd believe GV might even consider it would be if they landed two extremely pricey headliners (think Bowie/U2/Zeppelin/Stones/Talking Heads-caliber) and needed an act that wouldn't exhaust their ability to fill out the second and third lines.

    As acoustically perfect as the Bowl is, it is one of my least favorite concert venues. You are stuck in your seat and have little desire or reason to get into the show (see dance) when everyone around you is just sitting and staring into space, chatting up their neighbors or texting/talking on their phones. This is why I will be patronizing the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in Irvine for NIN in August.

    I have pit tix, btw.
