Very new to this sort of thing, and i was just wondering...

Why on earth would anyone want to listen to a DJ set? Why not just go to a club for something like that? I see that some folks are a little upset that some of these acts may not be live acts, and i think it's justified. However, what the hell do i know? Is there any value at all in a DJ set at a place like Coachella?

In electronic music the DJ set is essential the Live set thing is just starting to get bigger but Mixing is a big part of electronic music

Dj sets are/have potential to be awesome, but once you know that a group like groove armada can put on a pretty fucken good live show
a dj set just feels like youve been cheated

Everyone bashs djs but there is a real art to it and if the dj is good enough they can do some pretty amazing things. If you want a example just watch the documentary scratch and see some of the crazy things a dj can do.
