I would consider moving Reignwolf to later. He’s starting to get some decent buzz and could be this year’s Gary Clark Jr., i.e., someone poised to breakout that is killer live. Maybe put him where Theophilus is and bump the other acts one spot earlier? Reignwolf in a super-hot, (hopefully) packed late afternoon tent just seems right.
Is Cafe Tacvba really going to be on the Outdoor stage? Couldn’t they switch with SMD, with SMD kind of being this year’s Chromeo? While having SMD and Hot Chip on the O.T. back to back would be a bit unusual, it would make for a pretty fantastic dance party. Maybe SMD could go where Grizzly Bear is, Grizzly Bear where Cafe Tacvba is, and Cafe Tacvba where SMD is?
With how stacked this day is, I’m amazed that this current schedule doesn’t have any crushing conflicts for me. If I can catch all or most of Bat for Lashes, Postal Service, Sigur Ros, and Hawtin, I’ll be stoked. I’d just have to settle for a few minutes of Puscifer on my from Sigur Ros to Hawtin. I’ll take it!
I wouldn't call SMD this years Chromeo exactly. Pretty sure they belong in either the Mojave or Sahara
I played around with Saturday and made some adjustments like bumping SMD to later and putting 2 Chainz on the main. Thoughts?
Last year when they had all those long break between sahara acts wasn't it because they all brought stupid lighting rigs with them? Are any of the guys using cdjs this year even gonna need a break between sets cant they just switch off?
Love the changes. SMD looks way more suitable in that late Mojave slot.
As far as 2 Chainz is concerned, I think the argument for him on the main is the amount of radio play he's been getting is similar to Kendrick Lamar and Childish Gambino, both who played early Main Stage slots last year.
Do you think Sigur will play HALF their set against Phoenix? Of all the bands on the lineup - when Sigur Ros plays is the most difficult for me to predict. I think ultimately they will close outdoor as predicted but feel there is room for the unexpected with Sigur Ros placement.
The only rappers at night in tents last year were underground and/or irrelevant. A$AP Rocky (who at the time had yet to have a single song played on radio, now is a different story), Company Flow, Airplane Boys, etc. The ones on the radio play main in the day.
Booka Shade is an electronic act. Those tend to close stages when outside the Sahara.
I'd say switch them with Puscifer.
Spooks talked with the bands roadies. Sigur Rós confirmed for main stage at night. Who are we moving from main to Outdoor. New Order? Postal Service?
I think The Postal Service. And New Order closing the outdoor.
Perhaps Hot Chip on the main stage in place of New Order?
i'm thinking main goes postal service > sigur ros > xx> phoenix
New order can close the outdoor
I find it really hard to believe that The XX will be on the main. There's just not enough going on there. Throw those cunts on the Outdoor. Sigur Ros on main at 8, Hot Chip on Outdoor at 8:45, Postal Service on Main at 9:30, XX on Outdoor at 10:15, Phoenix on Main at 11:10 til close. New Order on Outdoor at 11:30.
I'm a fucking genius at this shit, they should give me a job. But really, I'd be surprised if they didn't put New Order opposite Phoenix just because if you put them any earlier it gets insulting or whatever and Phoenix is some kiddy shit whereas no one under the age of 30 gives a shit about New Order.
As boring as the xx sub-headlining sounds, it's our reality
I went ahead and changed things around on the clashfinder to fit Randy's post to see how it looks. Thoughts?
Sigur Ros will be closing out the Outdoor, this shouldn't even be under discussion.
Well, it clears up the new order/spiritualized cinflict, but trades phoenix/sigur ros/puscifer for phoenix/new order/puscifer.
Any way you slice it, saturday is fucked.
Has the #2 overall act on a day ever been on the outdoor before?
Pretty sure The xx will be on the main stage
Only love & rockets in 2008.
