This is a good lineup...though not good enough to travel for considering coachella has most if the acts I'd want to see anyway. The only act I wish coachella got is the presets but we got a great set from them in 2011 so no complaints.
I'll take my lashes when they're deserved. I was motherfucking wrong about The Knife and MBV. Touche, supre.
Lots of stuff I'm really fucking excited about though. I didn't get to fully experience Empire of the Sun and The Presets at Coachella, so this is definitely making up for basically missing them in 2011.
Sigur Ros (at the fucking GORGE), Disclosure, John Talabot, Beachwood Sparks, Primus 3D, Solange, Twin Shadow, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Matthew Dear, Death Grips, Built to Spill, and Elliott Brood all have me immediately stoked.
I like it. Built to Spill, BRMC, Toro y Moi, plus some Coachella crossover. If the festival itself wasn't wasn't so uptight and they fixed their sound issues, I think I might consider returning.
great lineup, still confused why coachella didnt get primus

4/8 Ride @ The Roxy, 4/10 St. Vincent @ The Cosmopolitan, 4/14 Barry Manilow @ Staples Center, 5/2 Desert Daze, 5/8-10 Levitation, 5/16 The Juan Maclean @ The Regent, 6/10 Emmy the Great @ Hotel Cafe, 6/12 Emmy the Great @ Hotel Utah
Most of what I would want to see will be at Coachella. The only other acts that interest me would be:
Empire of the Sun
Shout Out Louds
For your health
Arctic monkeys, brmc, tallest man on earth, John talabot, azari and III, built to spill, toro y moi and twin shadow all look pretty damn awesome to me. Isn't the capacity about a 1/3 of coachella? Hmmm
I think the Gorge has expanded the Sasquatch capacity to approximately 32,000.
32,000 is roughly a third of what coachella has, give or take. Sasquatch has alot going for it this year, and pretty much every year since 08.
TOTALLY ENORMOUS EXTINCT DINOSAURS. Still can't believe he's not a Coachella this year. So much fun live.
I get it, things are redundant everywhere at this point, but this particular festival is really redundant.
I saw the presets and TEED when they came to L.A. I was just really hoping that PEACE and CHVRCHES could come to coachella. Chvrches tour date in L.A. overlaps with school
Some great stuff, but ultimately not worth traveling for in my opinion. I know I'd have a blast regardless though.
Courtney Barnett - 6/5 - The Mohawk
The Avett Brothers/Old Crow Medicine Show - 6/27 - Whitewater Amphitheater
Death Grips - 7/18 - The Mohawk
Kraftwerk - 9/25 - Bass Concert Hall
There isn't much that draws me to this.
I'll have to pass. Or check if I can get a deal.
This place is out of its mind offering VIP passes for $1000 and having Yurts and Tents for $6500 and $5000.
The only thing on that lineup that is absent form Coachellas that would make me want to go is Red Fang. other than that, pretty lackluster meh-ish.
and Macklemore... what the fuck is this shit?
lineup is decent. i bet sigur ros at the gorge would be pretty special to witness though.
May 15-17 - Psycho California
June 6 - The Rolling Stones
June 10 - Melvins
June 20 - Blur
June 24-28 - Glastonbury
July 18 - Death Grips?
July 26 - Faith No More
September 25 - Kraftwerk
Twin Shadow has a show here at the end of June. You figure Empire of the Sun announces something tomorrow.
Empire of the Sun
It should also be noted that 3+ acts are making their Northwest debuts like Empire, Chvches and Azealia Banks.
Sigur Ros at the Gorge is going to be incredible.
11/21 - Pearl Jam - Viejas Arena
