Post artists that have a history of being late (Tell the story or stories if possible) or just the type of set-up they have chances are they won't start right on time (IE Amon Tobin). Although you'll never know for sure when choosing your schedule, hopefully this will help some ppl (Mainly me) choose.

They got Lauryn Hill to start on time last year, so miracles can and will happen...especially after Sly Stone.

Snoop and Dre for sure.

They will smoke "1" more blunt/joint before going on stage, that will turn into 30 more minutes of backstage debauchery while everyone at the festival impatiently checks their watch. We may lose some to AVICII, but that is probably for the better

Snoop was like 45 minutes late at pacific fest. He came out and said something like "don't these motha F's know who I am? Trying to rush me out tha door. I will leave when I am motha f'in ready?!"
Cool story, I know... but I found it really funny.

^ yeah I know what you mean. It was a alright show, don't get me wrong... but it was incredibly inconsiderate. I was just happy they still let cut copy go on for their full set, because they were the ones closing and who I went to see.

exactly... i was so tired once Cut Copy came on, Snoop almost ruined the whole thing. Guy couldnt even show up for a guest spot during the Gorillaz set in '10 and he lives an hour and a half away. Seems a little to old to still be so full of himself.

You have to settle into the right frame of mind to perform poorly and half-assedly.

Srsly, the Dre/Snoop set is gonna make the Gorillaz performance look like KISS.

Florence was a good 10/15 minutes late to her Gobi set in '10

If i remember correctly it was due to sound issues as there was no sound coming from the drum set, once they had that corrected they ran a quick soundcheck and they promptly took the stage.

Wale was late back when he was at Coachella
Cee Lo, Jay Z, Odd Future, Kanye, Sly Stone...

Flaming Lips were incredibly late in 2004. Madonna was about 30 minutes late. When Air performed on the Outdoor, it was in the half hour range. Chems last year.

And none of these help the OP's main desire to figure out this year.

I will say I really enjoyed cut copy's set though. I thought they were fantastic. I was just terrified they wouldn't be allowed to play.

Seems like several acts went on late Friday of last year. The Chems, Robyn, The Black Keys, and then Cee-Lo (who I didn't see)

Yeah I was kind of pissed that I blew off half of the fun Black Lip's set to go see Cut Copy when they were supposed to go on, only to find out they were pushed back 45 minuntes because Snoop couldn't put down his bong. Be a professional and show up on time, it's incredibly inconsiderate to festival goers and the other artists on the bill.

Chems had video malfunctions with the big screen and were delayed 40 minutes.

03-15-2012, 12:51 PM
But to be fair, she was there, it was sound issues she couldn't control..odd futures sound probs were from their own ignorance.

Not only that, I actually talked to Tom over the summer and he was telling me how Kings of Leon refused to let them start setting up their stage while they were still playing. He seemed pretty bitter about it still, and I would be too, fuck KoL.

Let's try and keep it about this year and the people on this line-up. I don't care about a late artists who aren't on the line-up, as it won't effect which artists I see. Also bitching about cpt wasn't exactly the point of making this post.
