Reading this years lineup after months of hoping and waiting i couldnt help but have a huge sinking feeling of disappointment in my stomach...
Ok so i know we have Felix da house cat, Groove Armada, The crystal method and a few others, but how can that be it after having Deadmau5, APHEX TWIN, above and Beyond, Sasha and Digweed and Justice last year??!?!??!!? In the years before that we had Tiesto and Daft Punk. Is Paul Tollet intentionally neglecting electronic music?! Who else is feeling my agony?? Someone please fill me in on some sweet Sahara tent acts i am missing out on. There is no doubt this is the most disappointing Coachella line-up i have seen. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE add more headliners!!!!!

Just because you don't know shit about EDM outside of the massive names doesn't mean good shit isn't there.

LOL electronic music isn't like the other genres, if you are lesser known its cause you suck. deadmau5 rose to prominence from nothing in less than a year, that's how quick it takes to get recognition. so don't say throbbing gristle because they suck dick (to most people).

MSTRKRFT can't even fill up webster hall in nyc, and they've been around for awhile. they are a shitty version of justice.

Aphex Twin was not added until mid March

wait for it.

same for Above and Beyond..but they suck

They can be compared to all of the artists except Aphex.

Deadmau5 and AnB is ok, Sasha/Digweed are pretty good, and Justice is less than average.

BoC is a stretch, but Monklish had them in his/her "Probably" list, which included MBV. Their MySpace account was mysteriously added, and he/she was pretty darn accurate, so all we can do is wait and see.

It is true about Plump Djs... They had a blog on their MySpace stating they were going to be at Coachella this year... Don't know if it's still there.

I was quoting those as relatively lesser known acts that DON'T suck. Which I believe was the retarded point you were trying to make.

And trance? wtf? None of those acts except Armin, who you mentioned, is trance.

It's still there, but in the same note they also said they would be WMC/Ultra which they aren't. Someone e-mailed their booking agent and got a response that Coachella was still TBC. Hopefully they figure it out ...

because they came he to dj before without a work visa and got caught...its happens to a lot of djs. When I did my club nites and raves thats the only way I could afford to bring them over here.

for ten years....i dont know why we havent talked about it.???? Since i moved I dont do much anymore....i still dj once and a while but its hard to break into the LA scene

I had deep impact here a few years back and customs called me and asked why he was coming and how long he was staying. he had to give them my address and number to enter. Thats a big reason why djs went to cds and laptops. I told him he was here to come to my record store (i worked at one) and hand out free demos and sign shit for kids. He doesnt get paid just promotes his label.

hit up my myspace and i have some flyers of shows i have thrown.

Honestly i'm excited for Steve Aoki i like his sets but to each his own i agree no trance should be added that would suck but the sahara for me is looking pretty good

Felix da Housecat spins bad ass sets every time i see him
MSTRKRFT has never let me down if anything gets better and better every time
The Bloody Beetroots are going to MURDER! the sahara
Crookers will blow the roof off as well
Drop the Lime i haven't seen before but from what i hear is pretty good
Roni Size Reprazent is going to be insanity for me atleast being a DnB head
Groove Armada is going to be sick Live would be better but still going to be dope
The Crystal Method i am curious to see i have never seen them before
N.A.S.A. is guaranteed to rock you
Ghostland Observatory is going to be sick


i dont know i'm over typing but the Sahara for my music interest is looking pretty damn good
