    Default Portishead...

    So good to see them on the lineup.
    They could've been a sub-headliner but nope, they're headlining the second day. And I Couldn't be happier.


    With that said, what songs are you wanting them to play?
    For me I'd want to head "It's A Fire", "Mystereons", "Strangers", "Sour Times", or "It Could Be Sweet."

    Anything off both albums would suffice, curious what the new stuff sounds like. Either way, Saturday's Coachella will end on a somber note.

    wa-wah... but I still heart portishead.

    so they are like 100% confirmed to play right?

    i'm consdiering traveling cross country just to see them and i would hate to get there and spend money just to see them and find out "oh they couldn't make it, b/c "blahblahblah"...

    i would seriously be pretty pissed if that happened...

    i was in the very front when massive attack played in '06. it was certainly a metaphysical experience.. for me, that show and daft punk were the BEST acts for that year.

    the only thing that sucked was listening to tool fans bitch and moan during massive's set b/c they were waiting for their band to play after massive attack.

    I just don't dig Massive Attack. They put me to sleep in 2006. very boring. Apparently i'm alone in this opinion.

    I am looking forward to Portishead this year though. I love them!

    i think dj andy will definitely be there to play their old hits. i heard that he doesn't make an appearance at all on the record thats due out toward the end of the year ;[ i couldn't imagine portishead without the dj element involved... but i can't wait to hear portishead to bust out some brand spankin new tunes.

    on 06 Massive Attack played and we laid under this huge pink light while chilling with our crew being serrinaded by Massive Attack...

    This I'm expecting to be a similar experience especially after just reading that Kraftwerk will be on the Mainstage with a big stage production...

    I thought I'd miss some going from main to sahara but it looks like Death Cab, Portishead and Kraftwerk will all be on the mainstage...even if death cab is on the outdoor stage it's still perfect with minimal commute time from stage to stage...

    Massive Attack was brilliant. Liz Fraser made me weep, she did. Front and center for Portishead <-- Me.

    Given that they have two albums and a headlining slot, I would expect them to play nearly every song in their catalog.

    I think the lineup this year sucks BAAAD!!!! I would rather redo last year or the year before... Death Cab??? Jack Johnson??? wtf? I would go to see Booka Shade, Hot Chip, Portishead, and a few other, but what about headlining with the teddy bears, or someone who is up and coming?? disappointed and not going.

    Let's be honest, that would be their most optimal time to perform.

    nah, the dead of the night would be optimal portishead performance time.

    It doesn't matter what time they perform, it's Portishead.

    I miss talking to TomAz.

    We all do. I live in the same city as him (unless he relocated) and rumor has it that at 3:15am if you listen closely and its really really quiet you can hear him telling you to go fuck yourself.

    i fucking love portishead. i am So excited. but i cant not say that it should have been portishead, followed by radiohead, the Headliner.

    that would have been absolute perfection.

    Half Day Closing might actually make me cry. I have to say I am thrilled about seeing Portishead on the lineup. I will catch a spot in the field near the main stage, lay down and enjoy a awesome end to a hot day.

    Ideally Cowboys (I love the creepy begining of the song, reminds me of America's Most Wanted), Mysterons, Elysium, Seven Months, Glory Box, Sour Times (Al Jourgenson vocal mix is what i call it, but its more commonly known as Airbus Reconstruction). The great thing that I loved about Portishead live is how FUCKING LOUD they get. very nice.

    Yes that is when I thought they were going to perform. I was hoping they werent going to be in the tent, and I was hoping that the sun would be going down as Half Day Closing was playing especially the end part. yeah. nice.

    Not really.
    At ATP, they didn't play "It's A Fire."

    They played more new stuff
