    Which tune is that? Honest question. I looked on YouTube this morning and couldn't find one I recognized. I get that they're huge, but they're not mainstream.

    I could see them playing, but it's hard to imagine them headlining. Could more than 10% of Coachella's audience name or sing an Iron Maiden tune? (Genuine question. I can't, and I'm a guy who was...

    Friday is essentially 13.5 hours (2pm to 3:30am). That's about even with Coachella's Friday. Saturday is maybe an hour longer or so, but that's it. Sunday is less than 12 hours, which is shorter than...

    After looking at Bonnaroo's schedule, complaining about gaps at Coachella becomes absolutely fucking hilarious.
  11. Re: Coachella pro tip: weekend two is always better. Less hype. Better sets

    Yes - killer dust storm that night, left an inch of dust all over the backyard of the house we rented. It was awful.
  12. Re: Coachella pro tip: weekend two is always better. Less hype. Better sets

    No, there was no dust storm. Just a constant light breeze that meant a bit of dust in the air. This year, W1 at least, was delightful.

    I think it'd be bigger than the Dan, but smaller than any of the headliners this year.

    But it'd also be awesome.

    If you'd gone Weekend 2 that year when it was 107 degrees each day, you'd get the cooler temp hype. Upper-80's/low-90's is perfect.
