Totally fair to say it was uneven and knock the sound but I still loved this set.
I saw Markus Schulz last year in Toronto and he was way better than a lot of the shiz in the Sahara this year. Ask me two years ago and I'd never have said this but Markus Schulz was way better when...
It was fucking terrific. I had high hopes after watching some of their Mayans vs. Aliens show on YouTube but was surprised by how much I loved the set and how much I danced.
Mojave is the new...
Dawes was one of my fave sets all weekend and I'm not really into that kind of thing. I'm way more of an EDM fan. But something about that dude's voice and lyrics and the deranged drummer and the...
Great set. Be on the rail. Girls in the crowd were sexier than any other set. And the animal heads...
All you need to know about Justice this year is GIRL TALK!!!!!!!
Once upon a time I remember people complaining that trance was ruining the Sahara. Now what do you call this stuff? Bro-house?
I am listening to Joey Beltram right now. That's all.
St. Vincent was probably my fave set Saturday. She was amazing.
Psy-Trance! Astral Projection, motherfuckers! Goa Gil!
Seriously... Girltalk, SBTRKT, SubFocus, Beats Antique were all awesome - none of them in the Sahara. Zedd and Nero were solid in the Sahara and as much as I hate to say it, Swedish House Mafia was...
Seriously, WALLPAPER was fucking stupid. I said to my friends, "This is fucking stupid" and then we all left.
WALLPAPER was the worst band I saw. Those fucking drums.
Mind you, I avoided AWOLNATION. It was because some kid at the pool where we rent our condo was talking about them. The kid seemed...
When I was 15 I loved Full Moon Fever.
But please don't hold that against me or Coachella.
Yeah, I'm probably the only person on the boards who cares about this but PLEASE, GV, schedule the fest for the 15-17 or earlier because I don't want it to conflict with the Newport to Ensenada...
Pretty Lights was one of my fave sets of the weekend. I made all of my friends go and they thanked me afterward. Then I parted the red sea.
Several things in this thread need to be addressed.
First off, Prince was awesome so STFU.
Second, PF was "just saying." That was totally not like a complete and total GV explanation or...
I'm not sure Al Bundy would think much of this at all.
Doesn't Al Bundy seem like he's in the 19th century at this point?
Bring back Florence and the Machine, damn it!!!!!!
I really like these guys but came in was way in the back of the tent and couldn't quite tell what was going on. We had someplace else to be and moved on. Would like to have been there and been up...
Paparazzi stayed on stage and did a double set. He was okay. Not great. Not awful.
I've seen LCD a few times and this was my least favorite performance. A few songs were underwhelming in the energy department but still, mediocre LCD is still better than a lot of bands at their...
I wanted to see her quite badly. Love that song "Politics in Space" - but the line madness at the entrance and the stupid event staff telling us to stand in the wrong lines meant too much waiting...
2 Fever Fucking Ray
4 One eskimO
5 Owen Palett
Honorable mention - The Specials, Pretty Lights, Thom Yorke, Florence and the Machine, Orbital
I thought it was as good as the setlist. Some less good sings brought it down a bit but when they did awesome songs (Clint Eastwood, for example), it was great.
I just think GV made a mistake...
I think saying GV jumped the shark this year is going too far. If they had jumped the shark I wouldn't have seen as much amazing music as I saw (I'll elaborate on that later in some other thread). ...
Can someone please post the video of him flying through space? I was happily elsewhere but that sounds like something I have to see.
In the parking lot, one dude stole every cone he could and piled them on his car making it a moving traffic cone forest.
A dude so eager to cut me off he rear-ended the car in front of me. Ass. ...
I was in lot 7 both nights. Took 2.5 hours to get out Friday night so we left earlier last night - before any of the stages was finished and it took LONGER to get out! Leaving fest at 1230, we were...
Did anyone on this thread even make it through one song on Alana Grace's myspace page or one sentence of her bio? All the dummies who totally love her didn't buy tix this year because James Blunt...
And here I thought it was about crotch rot and bunions on my toes.
Boy Lilikoi - Jonsi
It's primal. It's surprising. It's alive.
And it makes me move.
That's why I love it.
I don't really know y'all but I will definitely be there. Bought some face paint today in four different colors and will try to arrive early as possible to lend it to anyone who needs it. (I'm a...
Please go to TCV.
I'll be dancing my stupid ass off to Pretty Lights and enjoying the extra space.
Yeah. Jason Bentley knows his shit, 4 sure.
If Olaf joins her, how we will we know? Could just be some dude dressed as a mystical wildebeest.
Guys, I've been lurking this thread with massive excitement but failed to comment or commit as most of my friends are not going to Fever Ray and I was hoping to catch some of Benny (meaning no rail...
Gobi on Saturday FTW!
You called it!
Great job GV! Especially having the grounds silent for Fever Ray! Thanks!
Gorillaz using all five stages at once plus the Do Lab. That is E P I C !!!!
Fever Ray v Deadmau5 FTMFL!
Don't wear clothes at all. Bring only your wizard hat and your +10 taze-resist cloak.
Ahhhh, I remember now...
I'm gonna go with Club 75. They're gonna be opposite Gorillaz and while a reasonable person might miss Gorillaz for, say, Orbital, only a doosh would miss Gorillaz for Club 75.
So I just saw it again in another thread. "I wouldn't go to that party even if Jesus was spinning!"
And plenty of times people have said they wouldn't miss so-and-so for Jesus...
So what would...
