C.B. enters room......
watcha' guys arguing about.....? (in a curious, little kid type tone)
Coachella 07 (the introduction), 08 (the bands), 09 (the documentary), 10 (the people i came with), 11 (the relationship test... we passed), 12 (whatever the weather, Dirty Epic forever), 13 (the year of the troll)
- PEARL JAM WHY YOU HATE COACHELLA? -
I see people throwing around names I'd love to see on the lineup but know won't be there come January... We need techno, tech house, deep house, and classic acts. I fear the tsunami of cheese that crashed over us this year will only be worse next year.
We can wish, though, can't we? All this speculation gives me a minor chub.
And MJA... I know. I'm feeling delusional.
I miss caring about who might be in the Sahara. Now I just look forward to who I will see in the Gobi/Mojave at night.
Fedde le Grand, Steve Aoki, Skrillex, Armin van Buuren, Bassnectar, and Pretty Lights are all pretty famous mainstream djs who were not there this year so I'd say they are likely for next year.
And whos to say there won't be repeats from last year and two years ago? I mean, Afrocrap played back to back years, that does not bode well for the future.
yeah he was definitely known before levels...
Sure we'll have lots of crap to wade through on the poster in 2013. Just hoping for a return to form of sorts w/ 3-4 compelling acts.
I have a feeling that we will get an obscene amount of garbage in the Sahara next year as usual but we'll also get a bit more variety than this year. I could see said shitty names along with acts like The M Machine and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs. Hopefully Mr. oizo too, if he's not too busy with movies.
Alesso would be the one to repeat...
As for the other mainstream djs that are a "lock"
fedde Le grand
armin van buuren
as for the alternative edm acts
simian mobile disco
and one more solid big act like underworld basement jaxx or prodigy

Word is that Carly Rae Jepsen is headlining Sahara in 2013
If they are going to keep up the cheese, just go for broke and invite Joachim Garraud back. Sandstorm and alien masks for all.

If the album wraps in time I'd think they're a decent bet.
