Has anyone else heard about Destroid? It's a live dubstep group consisting of Excision, Downlink, and KJ Sawka. It's probably going to be really shitty but I wouldn't be surprised to see them on the polo fields. It's supposed to be a live band like pendulum or the prodigy but we'll see when it actually happens
Arcade Fire 10/29 @ The Capital Building

This is pretty disappointing news. I'm assuming if Fake Blood plays Beyond Wonderland, that rules him out for a set in the Sahara a month later?
The rules of A&R concerning LA proximity and playing other festivals so close to the event? Not one of the Beyond acts from last year played at Coachella, which is pretty telling considering how many cheesy Insomniac staples made it to Indio in 2012.
Ok well lets leave the mystical rules of A&R out of it. 2010 and 2011 also had no common acts between the two festivals. So if you're one to believe history repeats itself, it looks like Theo won't be there. I'd love for that deduction to be wrong.
there will obviously be a couple trendy trap names out of flosstradamus (who actually played in '06 if i remember correctly), baauer, RL grime, clockwork etc.
i'm counting on Gesaffelstein being there. if they can get 1 name out of:
kruder & dorfmeister
hospital records crew (camo & krooked, netsky, danny byrd, nu:tone, logistics, london elektricity, or SPY)
i won't complain. the 80% cheese house/brostep rule isn't gonna die anytime soon. post 08/09 i consider it a "great sahara" if there's more than 1 must see act per day
2013: GESAFFELSTEIN - washed out - ZZT - SCUBA - chase & status - munchi - dillon francis - mim0sa - JWLS - bro safari - koan sound - mord fustang - skream - spencer & hill - eskmo - black van - clouds - actress - gemini - clive tanaka - angger dimas - griz - blackmill - adam k & soha - boom jinx & jaytech - burial -
I feel really good about scuba's chances. Mostly on account of the silly custom light rig. Gotta have one these days! :/

R L GRIME early afternoon slot would be off the hook
One can only wish that any of these make it to the sahara... erol alkan, kavinsky, TNGHT, Boys Noize, John Talabot, Aeroplane, The Magician, Mr Oizo, Major Lazer, Flux Pavillion!
Like I say every year.....Prodigy plzzzzzzzzzzz
Besides, in 1999 BT played live at Coachella, and he was obviously playing trance back then...and yes I know about Movement in Still Life but that didn't come to America until 2000 so that would irrelevant. Banco De Gaia also played as well and BDG had some "trancey" stuff like Last Train to Lhasa.
People slagging off trance due to Castles in the Sky bullshit is similar to people slagging off dubstep these days due to Skrillex and Rusko.
i'm for ANY act that hasn't played in the last six years...and i'd settle for anything that isn't Dutch or 'Progressive' House.
i really hope we get a couple trance sets next year.
Sasha, John Digweed, Jimmy van M, Dave Seaman, Slacker, Breeder, Hernan Catttaneo, Nick Warren, and Gat Decor used to be the names to pop up when progressive house came to mind. Now? Fucking Afrojack or Hardwell, when they are anything but.
to be fair, u shouldn't call a sound from ten years ago 'progressive' anymore either..
