Thread: Coachella pulled a fast one this year...

  1. #1

    Default Coachella pulled a fast one this year...

    Let's just talk about the lack of celebrity guests (on stage) for Weekend 1. No one came out for Drake except Madonna (??) (not Weezy, The Weeknd, etc.), The Weeknd, (no Ariana Grande), Alt-J, etc. Coachella has a huge history of surprise guests the first weekend, what do you think happened? Are they saving the surprises for W2? What do you think?!

    lol they sampled her.. did you really think Miley Cyrus would come in on a wrecking ball just to say "Im a Female Rebel" and thats it?! Great artist don't need surprises. look at The Weeknd, he ended up having one of the best reviewed sets of the fest because he was able to perform an amazing show without any support..

    I thought maybe Conor Oberst might stop by alt-j's set for Warm Foothills. I guess that didnt happen weekend 1? That would be cool if oberst and Jenny lewis showed up for alt-j this weekend.

    Here is the problem with your thinking. Coachella does not invite the surprise guests. The artists they book are free to do and bring whoever they choose. I am so tired of hearing people bitch about surprise guests. They can add something to a set, for sure, but the vast majority of the best shows I've seen at Coachella have been celebrity guest free. This was a lineup full of amazing performances, honestly some of the most consistently excellent I've seen since I started coming. Fuck surprise guests.

    It's fucking stupid if people only go to peoples sets just for anticipation of a guest to come out. Go for the music or don't go at all...

    There's hundreds of 'celebrities' you get to see each and every day you're in attendance, is that not enough?

    At least the "Daft Punk" thing has sort of died out by now.

    To "pull a fast one" is to successfully deceive someone. Coachella "pulled a fast one" because the acts they booked didn't bring out special guests for weekend 1, thereby deceiving tens of thousands of patrons who bought tickets expecting special guests and not just the acts on the poster. Do you understand now?

    No.

    What's a special guest?

    Oh, I get it now!

    Well, darn it all, Coachella did pull a fast one!

    Shame on us for being such easy marks.

    Maybe they'll give me a free beer?

    I do think they had markedly less guests this year across the board, but maybe they overdid it in 2014, when it felt like every single set had at least one guest appearance. I had expected them to keep encouraging acts to bring guests since that adds a lot to the hype factor and differentiates Coachella from other festivals, but apparently not so this year. Still, there were quite a few, just not as many high-profile or "a-list" guests as I'm sure a lot of people were expecting.

    Personally, I don't really care either way, I think it can be really fun, but it's definitely not why I choose to see the acts I do.

    Miley would be obvious but also not really warranted for the one song. What would be sick is if Amelia from Sylvan Esso came out to do Buffalo with them. Except 95% of the crowd would have no idea what was going on since most of the fan base is brand new.

    drives me nuts listening to "omg they didn't bring this person out", and coming back home and hearing it from my friends that there were no special guests. WHO GIVES A FUCK. I go to Coachella for who is on the lineup, not who might theoretically come out.

    Special guests who matter: Blake Sennett when he came out to do Portions For Foxes with Jenny Lewis.

    Special guests who don't matter: Literally everyone else, fuck this shit.

    Celebrity appearances (unlike guest surprise acts) have only helped to make Coachella a worse festival. Except Danny Devito, he's cool.

    I haven't heard about him being there in quite a few years, but I'm not really too sure. Pretty sure he was going to it before me.
