I'll be watching Girl Talk, but I really doubt he'll be in the Sahara tent. Gobi at night.
looks like the headliners for the Sahara are: Tiesto, Faithless, Paul Van Dyke
Evil Nine after their failed appearence in '05.
Faithless is a very nice addition, but Tiesto and PvD??? Really? The possibility of two trance DJs headlining two of the nights is weak as hell! That doesn't match up to Chemical Brothers, Basement Jaxx, Daft Punk, Kraftwerk in the slightest bit. There's so many other DJs that are blowing up right now and aren't spinning Disneyland Trance either...uggh...I don't mind that Tiesto and PvD are there but hopefully they will not be filling the headlining spots.
tiesto will be amazing, but PvD?!?! please tell me that this isn't true! he's headlined the past couple of southern california massives... shit's weak!
I don't understand why either of those djs got booked, they play socal every other weekend. I am so tired of weak trance "superstar" DJs. Yes, I know trance is popular in los angeles, but bringing in 2 played out DJs is very disheartening.
well they can still release headliners right? I sorta remember last year when it was just carl cox and oakenfold announced. People seemed pissed, but then daft punk was added
infected mushroom have been added
PVD & Tiesto?
Disgusting. Coachella must be overly worried about selling out the three days because that's the biggest sellout I've seen yet. Welcome to 10 years ago, coachella. Have fun watching Tiesto put his hands up in a jesus pose while you all shitt your pants in excitement.
I'm banking on Underworld being a nice future addition.

Underworld, please oh please oh please, Underworld, it's time.
Oh, and Daft Punk and Bowie too.
I gotta jump on the WTF??? bandwagon with regard to Tiesto and PVD, and the dance act lineups in general. Pretty piss poor compared to last year. The "big" live electronic acts don't even grab me...Faithless...Air...BLAH.
The only thing that's looking tasty is Soulwax and Hawtin back to back on Sunday, and maybe DJ Shadow...there will be no DC/Coxie back to back powerhouse this year.
Whoever said you can see PVD, Tiesto, and Felix at ANY SoCal massive nailed it. Looks like GV finally gave in to the pressures of selling tickets.
3 days is looking like it watered the overall festival down, instead of adding value, especially if this "very limited" amount of single day tickets is true...
Faithless is this year's Daft Punk.
And they'll be closing the Sahara Tent on Friday night.
Gimme a break man...Insomnia??? That was TEN F-ING YEARS ago.
The new album just isn't good, plain and simple, they are nowhere NEAR Daft Punk in terms of the cultural impact of their music. One cheezy tune that was the gateway song for most people's Joakenfold addictions.
It's like Goldenvoice just gave in to the fact that most people are rolling in the dance tent and blew the proverbial budgetary wad on the usual suspects.
(with the exception of Richie Hawtin...worth mentioning a second time...he will destroy)
whoa whoa whoa! can someone confirm that infected mushroom is on the lineup??? This alone redeems, pvd being there. if you have not seen them before, prepare to have your mind turned into puddy.
tiesto and vandyk should just die already
they were good yeah like 5 years a go
now infected mushroom ohhhyes finally
They'll get underworld. Faithless is NOT this years Daft Punk. and otherwise there's still Justice, Digitalism, Soulwax, and MSTRKRFT
GV knows they can just stick them in the Sahara tent during the headlining slots and a certain guaranteed regular crowd of people will buy tickets, which provides them with a sort of built-in audience as a financial cushion.
Honestly, look at how many people were at Monster Massive a few months ago, despite the craptacular line up. I was there (don't ask) and I couldn't fucking move it was so overcrowded. There's a huge audience in the LA area for this stuff, and I can't say I entirely blame GV for thinking about the bottom line and getting themselves a piece of that pie.
It sucks, but it's true. The big tent has been dominated by this crap for years. Sometimes it's good during the day, but most of the time with a few exceptions (Kraftwerk) the dance tent at night is like a flashback to the late 90s.

infected mushroom played too many shows in soCal and Baja last year, same for tiesto, infected played the electric daisy carnival, or nocturnal wonderland, cant remember, tiesto played San diego and rosarito on the same night, and he was on Tijauna less than a month ago...he is almost a local act
David Guetta, LCD Soundsystem, MSTRKRFT (electro), Justice, etc. Not too shabby but I hope they add more other than the headliners.......
infected only played once in rosarito last year
And as for Tiesto, I went to TJ to see him, and despite all of your hatred, I think pound for pound he's still got it. That is just my opinion, but I think Tiesto is much more talented than PvD who is so overplayed in southern cal.
Tiesto, Paul Van Dyk, and Infected Mushroom hav all played SoCal/Baja half a dozen times in the last year.
Thanks for the Infected Mushroom info. We'll be watching them barring any horrible conflicts!
the busy bee has no time for sorrow.
We have a shot at getting Underworld and Aphex before we do with The Chemicals makin it
The Glitter Freeze
Coachella 99-10 Vet, the run has ended in 2011
