So I've accepted I probably won't see upper tier acts I have a mild interest in due to conflicts (Black Keys, Interpol, Duran Duran, PJ Harvey....) but in a possible effort that those making the official schedule read this thread, some feedback + realism might help all those out.

Not that we know for certain who is going to play what stage, but we can assume well enough.

No more than 3 you'd think be on the same stage, and no more than 3 versus.

ie: x/x/x vs. x/x/x vs. x/x/x

The Chemical Bros/Sasha vs. Cut Copy/!!!/Klaxons

Arcade Fire vs. Shpongle vs. One Day as a Lion

High Contrast vs. DFA 1979 vs. Sven Vath/Leftfield/Trentemoller


01-21-2011, 05:18 PM
Robyn/Lauryn Hill vs. Marina and the Diamonds/Kele

Arcade Fire/The Kills vs. Scissor Sisters

Duck Sauce/Jack Beats vs. CSS/Yelle

01-21-2011, 05:19 PM
i don't know what's worse...waiting for the lineup or waiting for the set times

"Possible Thread Conflict Woes"

haha....mine got moved to Misc. Babble for some reason. Consolidating worries and complaints into two separate threads is still much better than people constantly bitching in every other thread.

I'm worried about:

Black Keys vs Chemical Brothers (based on chem bros. Stated set time of 10-11:30)

National vs. Trentmøller vs DFA 1979.

01-21-2011, 07:49 PM
High Contrast vs. Sven Vath/Leftfield/Trentemoller

The only one I am worried about all weekend.

01-30-2011, 11:38 PM
please no Caspa vs Bloody Beetroots conflict!!!

fuck frankie
01-31-2011, 02:34 PM
seriously, my friday and sunday are so stacked i can't imagine i will be seeing any act without a lot of soul-searching and, ultimately, regret.

01-31-2011, 03:12 PM
My #1 conflict to avoid is PJ Harvey vs. Presets. Not that it would be difficult to choose (PJ hands down), just that I'd be pissed I didn't get to see the Presets AGAIN after missing them to watch Sir Paul in 2009.

And also Friday I want to see about 10 bands in the 6 point font.

Cold Cave v. Glasser v. Clare Maguire would be especially grim.

01-31-2011, 04:15 PM
Saturday: Mumford & Sons vs. Empire of the Sun vs. Big Audio Dynamite
Would have to go with BAD here, with Mumford #2 and Empire #3

Sunday: Kanye vs. Strokes vs. Duran Duran
Im really hoping that Strokes or Duran Duran dont close the outdoor stage, I'd really like to see all 3 consecutively on the main stage.

01-31-2011, 05:20 PM
artist i want to see / artist i want to see

It's going to be what it's going to be, there's no point in us worrying about it.

It's like making a thread titled "Time of my death woes"

01-31-2011, 05:44 PM
None Friday
None Saturday
DFA1979 and The Strokes are the only worry for me Sunday, but DFA wins if it really comes down to it.

Saturday - Mumford and Sons vs Empire of the Sun vs One Day as a Lion

Sunday - Nas & Damian Marley vs Bloody Beetroots Death Crew 77 vs Duran Duran

01-31-2011, 05:53 PM
Leftfield vs. DFA 1979. That's the only possibility that would really ruin the weekend for me.

02-01-2011, 02:10 AM
Saturday - Arcade Fire vs Animal Collective vs Empire Of The Sun vs One Day As A Lion

02-01-2011, 10:33 PM
Friday: Chemical Brothers/Boys Noize vs Black Keys

Saturday: Arcade Fire/Animal Collective vs The Kills/Broken Social Scene

Sunday: The National vs Death From Above 1979 vs Trentemoller/Leftfield

I am sure one of these will happen, but I can live with 1 out of 3.

it's gonna kill me.

02-02-2011, 01:31 AM
Leftfield vs. DFA 1979.

This one for sure. I'm pretty much terrified to see the times from 7pm on for Sunday.

03-29-2011, 09:48 PM
I hate conflicts.

03-29-2011, 11:11 PM
Arcade Fire/The Kills vs. Scissor Sisters

*Passes out at the thought of this conflict*

These are easily in the top 5 acts I'm dying to see this year.

03-29-2011, 11:14 PM
Arcade Fire/Animal Collective.

FFFFFFFFUUUUU this better not happen.

03-30-2011, 04:11 AM
leftfield vs bloody beetroots vs chase & status, kanye west vs trentemoller, daedelus vs one day as a lion, ofwgkta vs chem bros

Beardyman vs. Tame Impala vs. Warpaint, I know none of them are the big names but these are my favorite discoveries and I'm worried they are all going to do somewhat earlier and overlapping sets.

04-01-2011, 09:43 AM
Trentmoller vs. Leftfield vs. High Contrast

Friday - Beardyman vs Jakes vs Aquabats (Jakes will probably play before them, but worried) Flogging Molly v Cut Copy or CWK, Magnetic Man v Robyn.

Saturday - The Twelves v PF Stage,

Sunday is going to be one GIANT ass conflict, Sahara v PF conflicts ALL DAY =( then Tinie Tempah, Plan B, Nas & Damien Marley, JEW, DFA, Strokes, Kanye.

I'm gonna be running constantly on Sunday.

04-01-2011, 10:47 AM
Friday: Beardyman vs Sleeping until a reasonable hour before driving to Indio
I'm predicting Beardyman at noon in the sahara. easy decision, but i <3 my sleep

04-01-2011, 10:48 AM
Go back to bed Tim. Beardyman's confirmed on the Pure Filth stage.

04-01-2011, 11:33 AM
DFA and the Strokes is the one I'd be most concerned with

last year was a clusterfuck for the conflicts for me
Devo, Les Claypool and the Dead Weather

04-02-2011, 02:49 AM
baily, correct me if I'm wrong but wasn't there a thirty to forty minute Dead Weather slot in between Claypool and Devo?

04-02-2011, 08:02 AM
Definitely could have seen most of those three sets.


04-02-2011, 10:34 AM
Yeah if the schedule actually happened according to plan that night you could have caught the majority of all three sets if you wanted to.

04-02-2011, 11:26 AM
Like OP said, I accepted I won't see everything I want but on Saturday I'd be pretty bummed if
Arcade Fire vs Empire of the Sun
Happened :/ they're my 1 & 2.
I had tix for EotS in LA but couldn't go last minute, & arcade fire sold out before I could buy em.
It also sucks that the other thread keeps predicting that conflict

04-02-2011, 11:59 AM

OFWGKTA vs. Kele vs. Cee-Lo Green

Lil B vs. Badu vs. EOTS vs. Animal Collective


Kanye West vs. Bloody Beetroots vs. DFA 1979

04-02-2011, 12:21 PM
Trentmoller vs. Leftfield vs. High Contrast

For real. With Sven Vath and PJ Harvey as well Sunday is going to be tough.

04-02-2011, 05:15 PM
What date are they announcing the official setlist??

04-02-2011, 11:48 PM
Some time during the week leading up to the fest.

04-03-2011, 12:19 AM
Chemical Brothers & Lauryn Hill

Oh god no

High Contrast & DFA & Leftfield

and Freq Nasty and anyone else
oh god oh god

04-03-2011, 10:37 AM

Friday: Beardyman vs Sleeping until a reasonable hour before driving to Indio

fuck this lazy bitch.

04-03-2011, 04:25 PM
Saturday - Arcade Fire vs Animal Collective vs Empire Of The Sun vs One Day As A Lion

Yes this would put a big damper in my Saturday. Especially Arcade Fire vs Animal Collective, as I plan to catch their sets in their entirety if possible. I'm comfortable skipping portions of Empire of the Sun and One Day as a Lion.

edit: All the people dreading a Lauryn Hill vs Chem Bros should hold their cover...I totally see this happening. Not to be a downer.
