According to their myspace page, they are playing the dance tent (Sahara) at 7pm. This rules out a Kanye and Strokes/Leftfield conflict, as well as any Sahara conflict, and I'm going to guess Trentemoller/DFA conflicts as well, especially if they play Sahara, or perhaps close another stage. This is good news! Although isn't the sun still out at 7pm? If so, would that be such a bad thing for those familiar with their live show?
Anyways, here's the link
sun sets around 7:30, which means it will just be starting to get a little darker around 7. In the tent it should pretty much feel like night, especially by the middle of the set.
That time would also make sense if the Sahara sunday looks something like this:
Sven Vath 11:00-12:00
Bloody Beetroots 9:00-10:00
Duck Sauce 8:00-9:00
Now hopefully there's no PJ conflict...
Song of life (or the first 10 minutes of that Electric Picnic set) has been getting heavy airplay on my earbuds. What a monster of a track.
No way Leftfield plays THAT early. They'll be on 9pm at the earliest.
Oh, I agree. I don't want to see any of those but they are way more relevant right now.
If Caspa plays the Sahara I could almost see him closing after Axwell too.
Maybe Leftfield will be on the outdoor.
3/6: Steffi, Virginia @ Mighty
3/14: Simian Mobile Disco b2b Roman Flugel, JPhlip @ PW
3/21: Cymbals Eat Guitars @ GAMH
3/21: Adam X @ TBA
3/23: HINDS @ Rickshaw Stop
3/24: Tim Hecker, Oren Ambarchi @ The Independent
Donald is right.
As long as Leftfield/Sven/Trentmoller don't conflict with Kanye/DFA, I'll be happy
if caspa plays sahara it will be early. Denitely not closing out the festival
I'm not saying I think Caspa deserves to close out the Sahara but I wouldn't be surprised if he did as a wildcard seeing as dubstep is pretty popular right now and Caspa is one of the more well known names. I think The Bloody Beetroots and either The Presets or Chromeo will definitely play late at night based on Coachella's past history of booking buzz live EDM bands at night. We know Axwell is headlining Sunday and I will be shocked if Ducksauce doesn't take one of the prime slots.
If I can catch Sven, trentemoller, leftfield and High Contrast on the last day of Coachella - oh my cuss what a way to end the weekend.
I'm listening to your Melt 2.0 set and Kaleidescope is on. Awwww I can't wait for April. Sorry to highjack with HC gushing.
I think Chromeo will be on the outdoor this year. And you guys really think Sven will play that early? Look where he is billed.
Leftfield may not close, but I highly doubt they'll play any earlier than 8.
It will also depend on if GV decides to close the Sahara early on Sunday again. Which, holy shit. They better not.
Actually, maybe Leftfield will get The Orb spot as such they did in 09?
*I guess it will depend on how "serious" that posted time slot from their myspace.
Leftfield or Trentemoller could end up in the Gobi or Majave. I could see that. I knew you were going to bring up Orbital last year as an argument but this year's Sunday lineup is very different than last year's. Guys like Axwell and the Bloody Beetroots are seriously going to fill the Sahara. Leftfield will not.
I know they'll fill the Sahara, but I still like to think that GV has some will on putting the older/reunion acts on towards the end of the night. It will be interesting to see how they put this night together indeed.
god I'm glad I don't do the set times for a festival like this.
Did anyone post this?:
http://www.leftfieldtour.co.uk/Live Date announcement
In addition to the live dates in Australia already announced as part of the Future Music Festival tour, the Leftfield tour will be announcing a couple of dates in the US very soon, shortly followed by European festival dates.
Neil Barnes is very pleased to say that he is working on new material for a forthcoming album.
More US dates are coming... And forthcoming album? Forthcoming Leftfield album?
Awesome news indeed!
Would it still be released as Leftfield?
