    gee I hope so. fri. is the day w/ the least bands. additions would be great. but if not, then that just gives me more time to get there/though the parking lot/general lines.
    they try to look trendy/but I think it's a shame/they all look the same

    I was always reluctant to jump on the "they gotta have Friday additions" bandwagon, even though it seemed the Friday Sahara lineup was sort of thin. But now that set times are posted, I have to believe they'll have someone doing something in the Sahara before 5:00!?

    at least i won't feel bad about getting there a couple hours late now.. but it would have been better if it started at 2:00 and ended at 2:00.

    What are you talking about? Sahara starts at 2:00 on Friday like almost everything else.

    After you posted this, I went back and saw that Charles Feelgood and Terry Mullan are playing earlier than 5... but when I used the Coachooser thingy around 8:30 or so, these acts weren't on there, so the schedule I printed doesn't show anyone in the Sahara until David Guetta at 5... looking at the Coachooser now I STILL don't see those acts on there...

    Yeah, don't need 4 hours to explore every day when I've already been the past three years. And doing so at high noon sucks anyway. What's the point of having on-site camping if we're punished for being there early?

    If things actually started at noon, there would be time for longer sets and fewer conflicts..

    there is more time for art and less time for bands to fight about going on so early.

    Are you saying you can't make everyone happy at the same time?


    Seriously though.. I would have appreciated longer set times too..

    they have a lot of time gaps on the time list and the fact that the shows dont start untill around 2 is a good reason to believe thay're goin to add some BIG acts for the sahara and main stage , and some other artists.
    THE real time list is gonna gonna be friday. SO im gonna wait till then to make my choices. its gonna be a big surprise

    Little bands that nobody has heard of should be grateful for the chance to play at noon. No competition, and besides, they are expendable. Last year Lady Sovereign, Giant Drag, Section Quartet, the Dears all played really early.
