I hope they play on the Outdoor. It would be borderline criminal to have someone on stage right tapping on their watch during "True Faith", telling the band to wrap it up so the Postal Service has more time to play deep cuts off of their one album.
Cant wait to see "True Faith"
I would really like to see Hot Chip->New Order->Phoenix
Saturday is f***ed up. Bat for Lashes (like a Florence & The Machine/Siouxie Sue hybrid if you've never heard her - she's rad), Spiritualized, and the legend Richie Hawtin also figure to play sometime after Sunset.
Assuming Saturday runs til 1, there are basically 4 slots allowing for 50-60 minutes with a 1/2 hour between - 7pm, 8:30pm, 10pm, 11:30pm. No idea how they'll be allocated, but I expect the XX to play against Sigur Ros, and Phoenix to play vs. New Order. Hopefully, the XX play against one of the other bands - Hot Chip, GB, or Postal Service, but I think that's less likely since the profile of the XX is higher now than it was in 2010 where they played a packed set on the Outdoor.
I'm guessing PS will get the Bright Eyes slot from a few years back - sunset/late afternoon on the main.

You are insinuating you may miss New Order to see Hot Chip? Sort yourself out
I must agree. You will miss NEW ORDER to see Hot Chip and / or Grizzly Bear? Have you lost your mind man?
Both of those bands should give up their stage time so New Order can play more sets ! Hot Chop? Drizzly Bear?
Ha ha ha....
I won't miss NO for anything. They are in my Top 5 must-sees. Still ticked I can't see them with Hooky after all these years because they're busy acting like pissy coonts.
Don' worry. Saw them in NYC this fall, and it was GREAT! Gillian is back, and it really didn't matter if Hook was there or not. Saw them in 2005, and this show was MUCH better!
A must not miss, and for those who miss it, it will be like missing Suede in 2011, which was one of the best sets I have ever seen at Coachella; 05, 06, 08,09,10,11.
Peter Hook did a Q&A and talked a bit about his new book he wrote about the Joy Division years in Los Angeles the other day.
He called the recent decision by Bernard and the group to tour without him the most difficult thing to deal with in his musical career. Which says an awful lot having to also deal with Ian Curtis' suicide right before you are about to tour America.
He seemed open to reconciliation, although he said it's like someone asking if you and your ex wife will get back together during the height of your divorce. The ball is in Bernard's court but he seems to be happy touring without Hooky.

One of the top 5 performances I'm looking forward to this year. Just really wish they wouldn't play any Joy Division song. I like JD, but I don't need to hear Bernard or anybody else singing those songs.
here is a 45 min concert live in berlin, from 2012
Thank you for this as well. The gf and I watched this last night and to my surprise she told me about how excited she is for their set. I grew up listening to New Order and this will be my first chance to see them. Hoping they wont conflict w/ Sigur Ros, but if they do we just saw them at OSL so it would still be an easy choice.
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)
Jesus. That live video was pretty damn impressive. Fuck. Saturday just became even more difficult.
