9:55-10:45 The Black Keys
8:30- 9:30 Pulp
7:15-8:05 Arctic Monkeys
4:45-5:35 Jimmy Cliff and Tim Armstong
10:45-11:35 Mazzy Star
8:15- 9:05 Cat Power
7-7:50 Explosions In The Sky
5:45-6:35 M Ward

Noel Gallagher 6:40-7:30
Miike Snow 1015-1115

9:45-10:45 Bon Iver
8:30-9:20 The Shins
6:40-7:30 Noel Gallagher

Oh nononononono. I always get way to involved with this. I was hoping not to see this tread for a while... thank you for waiting till February though.
Also, Madness will be outdoor.
Im thinking the outdoor will go: Madness->Mazzy Star->Refused (with Madness and Mazzy Star being interchangable)
That would guarantee me being at the outdoor all night but I really feel like Madness will be in The Specials slot from 2010.
Me too. They would be perfect in that slot.
Are we all predicting the same set times both weekends?
I predict Noel Gallagher to close the outdoor a la Thom Yorke 2010. Staggered in between Bon Iver and Radiohead.
You're going to break each day into its own thread, right Clumsy?
The more I think about it though, if they are worried about sound bleed during GY!BE, then it's probably not smart to put them in the tent right next to the Sahara.
I'm eagerly awaiting the blanket of "THERE IS NO WAY THIS BAND WONT BE ON THIS STAGE AT THIS TIME BECAUSE OF THESE REASONS (BUT SECRETLY I JUST REALLY REALLY LIKE THE BAND)" type of statements which never pan out.
Don't forget the "they are billed too high" statements. As in, "I believe GY!BE is billed too high for the Gobi."
Also, I didn't notice any sound bleed from the Sahara last year. Even standing outside the Mojave.
you're a brave man doing this again :)
Best thread of the year. Always gets me really excited.
So, I'm not really trying to get into this quite yet. But - here's what I have to say about Friday.
Right now, Friday has as many acts as it did in 2010. It's about 7 acts short of what it was last year.
I'm expecting a handful of adds (particularly in the Sahara). But if there aren't, I don't really see SHM closing the Main.
Of course, I could be totally wrong. Although if I am, it means Friday is going to look scarce compared to what it was last year.
Food for thought.
