I was there and I didn't find that to be the case so idk.
I was in the front so maybe the talkers were behind me?
Maybe. Most of the youtube videos of that set I've seen have been from people recording at least halfway to 3/4 of the way back. Social butterflies all up in that crowd, at least from the videos I've viewed.
of the giant clusterfuck that saturday night will be AGAIN, all i'm hoping is to see the Postal Service and Sigur Ros, with decent spots at both. So basically, one band would have a sunset slot on the main, with the other closing the outdoor
This might be my most anticipated set. Saw Jonsi in 2010 and was completely blown away even though the sun was out and he should have been given a night slot.
Grow Till Tall was one of my favorite songs of the weekend. If Sigur Ros can match that even 80% I will be more than satisfied.
The most important thing is that they get a night slot and hopefully it's on the Main Stage. I think it will be really crowded if they get thrown on the Outdoor stage before Phoenix takes on he Main Stage. Everyone I talk to agrees that this is one of the most anticipated gigs of the weekend. Fuck - they should just headline they whole thing.

we were on lsd for their set at osl and we could not help but be beyond fully engaged for that set. it was my buddies first time, he had always been into blues based rock and well, this opened him up a bit.
GV isnt stupid guys, they know how to make the "magic" sets happen unlike some of the other fests. it will 100% be a sunset/post-sunset setime either on the main or the outdoor.

because of that reason i'll probably spend their set on the sidelines lying on the grass eyes closed as i did for bon iver weekend1 last year. being crammed in with a bunch of people is the last place in the world i want to be when listening to sigur ros. if they pull a hologram tupac with the new light show i can always try braving the crowd weekend2 i guess

Here's to hoping they aren't booked in such a way that a ton of uninterested people somehow end up yapping their mouths off during the middle of one of the most beautiful sets ever (see: Outside Lands)
