So the weeknd was just a red hearing?
I'm getting the creeping feeling there will be a death grips d'angelo conflict...
has deerhunter played?
i think we may have thought these set times through more thoroughly than paul t
of the entire weekend, there are only 4 non-electronic non-headliner closers, 3 of which are on saturday
swans get a 55 minute set :/
i like our set times better :(
i dragged the set times to my desktop and opened them in preview as PDFs and they have super weird names lol..
kygo closing the mojave . . . . ? all in all so many botched confirmations
it would basically just mean we can expect flylo to have a lot of important guests
Thanks mikey and geof! this thread was a perfect way to chill out after school
true, I'm also starting to think terje would be more fun at night
why don't you see him switched with terje?
interesting that y'all see caribou as more sunset-y than terje. I see caribou as a total moody and nocturnal act. I see terje as more of an upbeat light hearted dance party who is also billed lower
shall we switch terje and caribou so terje gets a more sunset slot and caribou gets a more pitch black night time spot?
im thinking guy gerber will close the yuma
if bad religions billing excludes them from the gobi so does marina and the diamonds'
switch odesza and kaytranada?
we should do this for the 2000s
there are 2 keles
id just take philip selway and move him to the top so the gobi goes angel olsen > off! > bts > rac > Jamie xx > Kaytranada > Odesza > Philip Selway
i think all those acts are too small to close the mojave but would be fine to close the gobi, so we should keep panda bear in the mojave
philip selway in the gobi panda bear in the mojave?
the thing is there aren't a lot of options. who would you chose to close the mojave/gobi?
well, of the sunday night headliners since 2008, he is probably the most despised by the older generation. But thats beside the point because Im fine with how the schedule is now. I don't think we...
I agree about the counter programming, I just think we ride too much on tradition, every year traditions are broken. wasn't it you who said something like "trends show patterns, they don't create...
no, he was way older and had just come out with what is widely considered one of the best albums of the decade. Also he was coheadlining
i just don't understand why the sunday headliner playing to an empty outdoor is such a steadfast tradition I guess. I think if none of us can come up with a good, practical reason why this tradition...
Ok, well maybe this drake situation causes for special circumstances, what makes the most sense to me is move marina and the diamonds in between kygo and st vincent, moving everyone below marina in...
im forgetting why we have the outdoor ending early in the first place, is it so st vincent can play to a silent main, i don't think she necessarily needs that. Shell probably be pretty loud
ok so heres my proposal: we should move st vincent up so she becomes counter programming to drake
Ok first of I'm not a huge drake fan, although I don't think he's horrible. Secondly, theres no way to know what percentage of the total tickets are sold in the presage. Also, I agree that there...
i think we need to be including st. vincent in this discussion. Just because she's playing earlier than the other closers does not mean she isn't considered a closer. That being said, is she not...
thanks. Just because boardies aren't excited for hiim does not mean everyone isn't
Drake is a very different kind of headliner than this festival is used to, but he is extremely popular amongst many different types of people and cultures. People knew drake would headline when they...
the counter programming for sunday is fine i think. We have a rap act, an experimental rock act (st. Vincent), many choices of poppy modern electronic music, and a wildcard (Panda Bear)
brand new has already been confirmed for early evening and in no way is drake less popular than jack white
theres so much dance music on sunday someone like odesza is bound to conflict with drake. its unavoidable.
yeah unless theres a specific reason why electronic music with more pop appeal should close the gobi on sunday, I don't see this being valid
thats not a very big sample size, especially since one could make the argument that panda bear is more similar to dj shadow than odessa is, at least in terms of artistic sentiment
i don't know odessa well but i think they are hyped enough to play the mojave. they have an album out which cannot be said for disclosure during coachella 2013. Also, our other two mojave closers are...
my gut tells me panda bear is a gobi closer. what do you think
dare i suggest marina & the diamonds closes the mojave
hmm. panda bear closing the gobi sounds better than panda bear closing the mojave though.
Thanks will check those out
ooo let me play
guedita or anyone else who's into house music what would u recommend for someone who loved the disclosure album
the gobi is as big as the mojave, so putting bigger bands in the mojave is going to be a lesser priority than other factors such as time and flow
