Added Been Trill to the Sahara and moved some people around. Also, SMD moved to Mojave and times were adjusted. Have at it.
With the addition of Been Trill to the Sahara it seems like one Sahara act needs to move to the Mojave and from what I understand, the most likely candidates for that are SMD and Major Lazer. Perhaps switch SMD with Major Lazer?
Man, there's no way Puscifers gonna be conflict-free for me. Gonna be a tough decision.
Really like the new times. At the end of the night going New Order> Spiritualized> Yeasayer> Sigur Ros> Puscifer lets me see everyone i'm dying to see. Good show!
Why would they put less than half of the acts the other stages are getting on the new stage in lieu of better distribution? Is there valid information to justify that or just a hunch? Doesn't add up for me.
Wish they would move Richie Hawtin to sunday :-/
If Simian Mobile Disco plays the Mojave, it would be at night. Aside from that, looks solid.
8/4 DJ Windows 98 @ The Echo, 8/11 La Luz @ Echoplex, 8/20-23 Green Man Festival, 8/28 The Black Ryder @ The Roxy
This day is really stacked and that makes me sad.
switch moby and benassi for my sake
I'm only going to suggest this one more time before I bow out. Why on earth are Janelle Monae and Pusha T on the main stage, while 2 Chainz, who is arguably the most mainstream radio act on the entire lineup, is playing the Gobi at night?
Precedence: Wiz Khalifa, B.o.B., Childish Gambino, Kendrick Lamar, Wale, Lupe Fiasco, if the rapper has a hit on mainstream radio, they play the main stage during the day. You are trying to treat him like A$AP, who had absolutely no radio play at all this time last year. It is only post-Coachella that he has gotten popular. Nighttime Gobi makes sense for every other rapper on this day (and there are a ton of them) instead of 2 Chainz.
Prediction: 2 Chainz will be singing about big bootied girls somewhere around 4:00 on the main.
Spiritualized will be on the outdoor stage
and i expect biffy clyro on a little later than they're currently on (maybe in the vacant slot left when u move spiritualized)
I'd say have the Mojave go (starting at 6)
Yeasayer>>>Bat For Lashes>>>Spiritualized>>>Booka Shade>>>SMD>>>Decedents
Also agree with 2 Chainz playing the Main around 2:30
Agree about 2 Chainz. But Santigold was on the main, so why couldn't Janelle Monae be there, too.
With the exception of Hot Chip vs. Yeasayer, this schedule would work pretty well for me. Also, no way SMD is on that early.
Would the Wombats really play THAT early?
What about Disclosure closing the Gobi against RHCP and Pretty Lights? And putting Eric Prydz before pretty lights? I know billing doesn't always mean everything but it seems like with the top two sahara acts on the third line being first and second that Dog Blood will go into bassnectar, benny bennasi will go into knife party, and eric prydz will go into pretty lights? I know in another thread everyone was saying infected mushroom would close sahara but didnt everyone say that about amon tobins rig last year? he closed mojave is there a chance infected mushroom will too?
infected mushroom is not the same as amon tobin
