Thread: Post Your Unpopular Coachella 2016 Opinion

    Default Post Your Unpopular Coachella 2016 Opinion

    So, we've had a few days to let the lineup sink in and get in some preliminary discussion. Based on what you've seen so far, what's an unpopular opinion you have that goes against the general boardie consensus? Is Kamasi Washington really not the savior of modern music? Is James Bay a fantastic booking?

    I'll start (gulp)...

    I actually think the 1975 is a pretty good booking. Their two new singles are great in a modern twist on an 80s throwback, and I think have easily differentiated themselves as the most interesting of that genre uprising (the Neighbourhood / Atlas Genius / Capital Cities / Bastille /etc.). Their debut was bland and their 2014 set sucked, but I can see them much better this time around. In comparing them vs. an act like 21 Pilots or another big EDM garbage set GV would have booked in that spot (I'm assuming the 1975 didn't push out the Prodigy or something...), I'm perfectly fine with this.

    The 1975 played a venue near my work recently, and on my way to work I saw people lined up for about a mile in the rain waiting to get into that show. This was at like 9AM, a full 12 hours before they were set to take the stage. I don't personally like them, but I understand the booking.

    Calvin Harris fucking deserves that festival-closing headlining spot.

    I think Calvin Harris' set might be fun I could hear him last time he played while I was at the outdoor waiting for Lana to go on, and it sounded pretty decent. Will probably be the first year in a while where I try to see all three headliners.

    Calvin Harris may be an example of everything that has gone wrong with EDM, but...

    It's hard to argue he is not a talented producer
    He has already proven he can rock the main stage
    He'll bring out superstar guests
    Maybe he'll perform some tracks off "I Created Disco"
    He'll send people home in a good mood at the end of the festival
    Drake closed last year

    I actually like the rap acts this year. Run the Jewels will absolutely kill it per usual but guys like Vince Staples, Nosag Thing, Anderson .Paak, Ice Cube and A$AP Rocky will all have great shows as well. I just hope they're at night, something feels weird about day time rap for me.

    I hate the Disclosure booking. Seeing their name next to Zedd (both billed at the exact same damn spot as 2014) was probably the least aesthetically pleasing thing I've ever had to look at on a Coachella poster. As blasphemous as this sounds I would’ve cringed less if Tiesto or Avicii was at that spot on the poster. Anything was better than looking at such a recycled name like Disclosure at that spot again. They’re like the most accessible electronic act of the past 3 years.

    Rae Sremmurd was GV's best rap booking this year.

    The card on Sunday is not that bad - meaning I'm not restricting myself to Sunday being a beer garden and despacio day. Maceo plex, adam beyer/ida engberg, claptone, digweed, anderson .paak, nosaj thing, tensnake are all solid bookings and (pending conflicts) should prove to be an awesome time.

    Fucking stoked for the rap lineup this year.
    My wife is a huge Calvin Harris fan, so I know where we will inevitably be Sunday evening.
    I'm excited to see what Sunday has to offer and am thoroughly enjoying researching more of the undercard.

    Totally agree with this.
    Finished last year with fantastic sets from MANDY and Bonobo in the Do Lab, looking at Sunday's smaller font dance music lineup I must say I am very excited to spend Sunday night dancing my ass off again to some quality music.

    I'm going to call it now, Digweed plays the Do Lab for 3 hours on Sunday night.

    Because I'm the only one who feels this way: I am irrationally outraged that Wild Nothing is not on the lineup. New album coming out soon, no tour dates at all, a couple great songs released already, and hasn't played in three years. This booking should've been a gimme.

    What kind of sorcery is this?

    I'm happy a bunch of the 2nd line sucks on Saturday. It will draw drunken goofy assholes away from the stages I want to be at.

    Thought the same about DIIV. Watch both end up on the Burgerama lineup
