    The only reason I went to this set was to get a good spot for Animal Collective/Arcade Fire. But holy shit was this fun, I get goosebumps watching this video!

    Wow! Horrible video (makes me dizzy) and horrible song. Goosebumps are not exactly what I get when I watch/listen to the video. More like nauseous!

    Mumford & Sons is the Nickelback of bluegrass. All of their songs are generic and repetitive.

    If you don't like banjo, bluegrass, folk music or Rednex... you probably won't like Mumford.

    I, on the other hand, like all of these things. Luckily I never listen to the radio (except for KCRW sometimes) so I didn't get all burned out on the guys. Dancing like an idiot during Little Lion Man was one of the most fun things I did this year.

    Terrible video. It was a fun set but I would take Trampled by Turtles over Mumford in every way possible

    Not even a fucking debate

    Girl I was dating REALLY wanted to see them, so our we ended up dragging our group of about 12 people to it, get to those crazy light up circular palm trees, listened for 5 minutes and were fucking OVER IT.

    We were all dosed on some molly and acid too, to say the least.

    Believe we all stumbled upon Empire of the Sun and were amazed

    I love all of these things, but this band is shit. It's a bunch of British kids playing dress-up with their best Dust Bowl costumes, accompanied by forgettable folky-pop.

    This is actually the only time I'm ok with a shaky video, it shows just how much he and the rest of the crowd got into it. I'd be pretty disappointed if he just stood there filming during the set.

    You forgot the part about them just strumming the same chords really fast for an hour and a half...

    So I had never bothered to listen to Mumford & Sons til this weekend, and greghead's take is spot on.

    I actually liked Sigh No More. Their new one isn't worth a second listen.

    Babel sold over 600,000 copies in it's first week
    They would probably headline if they played in 2013

    I enjoyed their show in 2011. I'd go see them again. Anybody who says Babel sucks couldn't have possibly liked the first album then. It's the same. exact. thing. Comfort food.

    So two of the headliners are RHCP and Mumford and Sons. Done deal.

    Friday night M&S ---> deadmau5 makes a lot of sense. Lame, but I'd take it over No Doubt or Green Day.

    Conflict that with a 2 hour Underworld Sahara set and I'm good.

    I love folk, bluegrass, the banjo, etc. and I find Mumford & Sons' music to be extremely hollow, boring, and repetitive.

    I remember just being completely shocked at their billing in 2011. I liked the first album well enough, but figured that if they were booked at Coachella it’d be a nice thing to pay moderate attention to while lounging on the grass 100 yards back from the outdoor theater at like 4 in the afternoon. Had absolutely no idea they were so popular, and still don’t really understand why when you consider what else is available in that genre.

    If you like the show Two and a Half Men, you would also proably like Mumford & Sons.
