So two nights at the LA Forum in October probably mean Kanye is out?
Took me about 45 minutes getting through for W1. Definitely seems a lot easier this year as almost everyone I know that was trying was able to get some.
I have some great memories from Sasquatch, sad to hear it might be on its last legs.
Another thing that might have impacted this year was the weakness of the Canadian dollar. I'm sure they count...
Totally thought it was Gary Oldman.
As others have said, incredible set. Definite highlight of the weekend - one of the best I have ever seen at Coachella.
Disclosure was the biggest I saw. I was in the beer gardens and it felt like there was a solid crowd back to pretty much the Besame Mucho sign. I also couldn't get anywhere close to Jack U or...
Agreed. I thought she sounded awesome and I had a great time at her set.
-I found the sound in the main stage beer gardens was greatly improved. With that and the new huge screens I watched quite a lot of sets there this weekend and it was awesome.
-We got to the...
The crowd moving from Major Lazer to the Chainsmokers is going to kill someone
This. A$AP is going to be a huge party on the main. He's not going on the outdoor before fucking G-Eazy. Get out of here with this.
A$AP will be on the main before Ellie.
Yeah, I'm pretty sure it was up there all day.
EDIT: Check out this picture from Jimmy Cliff
The worst last year was when Jack White ended and you had the crush of people moving from Floss on the outdoor to The Weeknd. That was a shit show.
But anyways, Jack U and A$AP are both going to...
What the hell - A$AP, LCD and Jack U aren't all playing at the same time. Get out of here.
Main goes - A$AP > Ellie > LCD > Jack U
Outdoor goes - Sufjan > M83 > G-Eazy > Foals
I've been a couple times and I really love it. The park is beautiful, well laid out and pretty easy to get to. The crowds are great and it never got too crowded. Weather is usually great - although...
Pretty wild to see LDR listed above freaking Radiohead, but I guess that's who the kids want to see these days.
Osheaga is an awesome festival in an awesome city. I would highly recommend it!
Fair enough! That makes sense. I still think Cold War Kids end up on the main in that Gaslight Anthem/Awol Nation type spot
I see Jimbo Jenkins on the main at 12:45
Doesn't the main stage usually start around like 12:30 on Sundays? No way the first act on Sunday goes on a little before 2. You could easily get another act on the main with the set up you have now....
That's a pretty prime stage placement for a guy that is on the third line from the bottom. If you're this tied to him being on the main, throw him where the Vandals are.
This is the highest Cold...
That's a weird spot for Cold War Kids. They seem like a pretty obvious mid-afternoon main stage band. Any reason why Anderson Paak needs to be on the main stage then?
That would have them probably finishing after sunset though, yeah?
Last time I saw them at Sasquatch in 2014 I definitely remember them going on the mainstage when it was light out. Not sure where...
Hell yeah, I will be right there for Major Lazer too.
Chris Stapleton and Miike Snow are the two I am most looking forward to on Sunday. Really interested in seeing what Sia comes up with as well.
What kind of "crossover appeal" does Kaskade have? I don't think I have ever heard a Kaskade song on the radio - and I guarantee none of those KROQ fans or whatever cared about him last year. Jack U...
Why all this A$AP on the outdoor talk? Wouldn't he be perfect late afternoon main similar to Kid Cudi a few years back?
I have some good friends coming with that would easily be classified as bro/brofriends and they are all "totally psyched" for Ellie and Jack U.
Nah, but the girls the bros are with are. They are definitely the same audience.
M83 - A: The sexy sax solo during Midnight City is everything
Foals - Ranging from A+ to B-: Saw them for the first time at Coachella 2011 and it was incredible. Have seen them multiple...
This. Matt & Kim will for sure be outdoor sometime mid afternoon. Rateliff and Chris Stapleton will be in tents.
No way Jack U is in the Sahara. I mean shit - they just played a 20,000 person venue in my city that Tim McGraw and Luke Bryan are playing at pretty soon. And country is HUGE here.
Peaches announced as the guest curator for 2016 - should be another awesome year!
Jack U closing the main makes sense. That crowd is going to be insane - especially when Biebs shows up.
Why not Ellie in the Sahara during LCD?
Then Underworld closing the Mojave.
Not sure how popular they are in the States, but it looks like a Canadian band The Arkells is playing. Pretty popular these days in Canada. Also playing Firefly.
3.12 // San Diego, CA / Voodoo...
What times did you guys get there that the car camping line was so bad W1? I was there around 4 pm Thursday and it took me 30 minutes from when I pulled in to when I got to my camp site, by far the...
-Until The Ribbon Breaks
-mishmash of Light/Jungle/St. paul and the Broken Bones/Cashmere Cat
-Run The Jewels
-War On Drugs
-Father John Misty
Thanks for all the great work guys. I have greatly enjoyed lurking along the threads this year.
My day would look like:
1. Red Eyes - War on Drugs
2. Close Your Eyes (and Count to Fuck) - RTJ
3. If You Want Blood (You Got It) - Ac/Dc
4. Somehow Someday - Ryan Adams
5. Love Me Harder - The Weeknd & Ariana Grande
Don't see Kiesza in the Sahara singing a bunch of ballads in between Hideaway
First round of headliners are announced in about an hour.
Iceage already leaked when they announced their tour dates earlier this morning.
One of my favourite weeks of the year! It's an absolute blast. Swans destroying Dickens a few years back was pretty crazy.
Definitely looking forward to this year. The Church is a beautiful venue...
This is the first year they have charged for general camping
Jeez, just crunched the numbers and with the shite Canadian dollar and having to pay for camping this year it would be $534 each for my girlfriend and I to go down. That's looney tunes.
Pretty rough lineup. Think I will be skipping for the first time in 5 years.
So it looks like Monsters and Men are headlining a night? Woof.
Chromeo late night would be awesome though.
They were amazing at Folk Fest! Their jam with Fishbone and Debo Band was one of the highlights of the weekend for me.
The biggest crowd I saw was Future Islands. There was a lot of people there but still quite a bit of room.
Ac/Dc: Insanely fun show. I have seen them twice, one time opening up for The Stones and they blew The Stones out of the water. They sounded awesome and put on one hell of a show. A
I didn't mean it in a crowd overlap way, I was trying to say that if RTJ and Tycho are playing at the same time, RTJ is going to have the bigger crowd so it would be weird to have RTJ in the Mojave...
I can't see RTJ and The War on Drugs in the Mojave, especially while Milky Chance and Tycho are on the outdoor at the same time. Those are going to be big crowds. I see Milky Chance with the...
I've seen these guys probably 10-15 times over the years, they are always awesome!
Nope, still available
Haha, I went to this last night. It was amazing. Men Without Hats were a blast.
