I don't mention lyrics in that quote, but the topics his songs are about. Read it again. It's not the lyrics, it's the thematic elements and the overall ambiance. And it's not the drugs, it's the setting for them. He/they/whoever are an undisputed nighttime act, just like Gayngs last year.
I'm not so sure that thematic elements are really considered when scheduling. That would be a giant subjective pain in the ass. If it's not directly related to the lyrics, then it's even more subjective and probably not worth Goldenvoice's time to think about. You seem somewhat reasonable because you shot down the "Goldenvoice doesn't put repeat bands on smaller stages" theory, and had good reasons, but I think you're reaching with this.
ATDI and Le Butcherettes won't conflict. Omar's playing in both: http://lebutcherettes.net/post/15590930256#notes
Florence>>ATDI>>>Dr.Dre with Justice on the outdoor before Dre makes a lot of sense.
Bottom line: Goldenvoice will do what makes sense in the context of that year.
I think you should switch Sleeper Agent and The Airplane Boys... Sleeper Agent is more of an "open the outdoor stage" kinda band. The Airplane Boys would do better in a tent.
2001 ~ 2007 ~ 2010 ~ 2011 ~ 2012
This is the worst of the predicted schedules. I'd have ATDI closing the Outdoor opposite Dre/Snoop. I like the Weeknd on the Main prior to Dre/Snoop. Maybe Justice switching slots with The Weeknd or in the Sahara. Modeselektor earlier in the day. DJ Shadow to close out Mojave.

Does anybody else in this thread think The Weeknd on during the day is even a remote possibility? The answer is no. So shut up.
I think it is a given that given the direction the EDM is going this year that Beats Antique will be nowhere even NEAR the Sahara.
Is there some sort of insider information onto the projected reclusive nature of The Weekend? And is that why he is such a huge get, because we know that he's not going to like, tour the fucking fuck out of his material in 2012?
This kind of explains his reclusive nature though: http://exclaim.ca/Features/OnTheCover/waiting_on_weeknd

modeselektor is definitely in the sahara, beats antique is definitely not.
Lol@this ATDI vs Le Butcherettes conflict. Did this guy look anything up?
THIS IS SOME REAL SHIT.
Justice vs Dada Life? Dont see that happening. Way too similar fan base...The sahara would be empty for Dada Life.
I like where Justice is now, but guessing their slot/stage correctly is the hardest one on the lineup.
I doubt the Growlers would close the Gobi, more likely acts to close IMO: Greg Ginn, Wild Flag, Beats Antique or Araabmuzik.
Not especially helpful but ya I don't the the Growlers deserve such billing..
