Postal Service>>the xx>>Phoenix makes too much sense
Its such a disaster that The Postal Service, The XX, Sigur Ros and Phoenix can't all be on the same stage.
It would be the greatest night of music ever. It does make sense to put Sigur Ros on at same time as Phoenix on the Outdoor to ensure there's an even balance between crowds.
But why can't they just break the rules once...!

Postal Service>> The xx >> Phoenix(90+ minutes) >> Sigur Ros(75 minutes)
This is a festival that once put Black Star in the Sigur Ros slot back in 2005. Set times come out 2 days before the festival, so Phoenix will always be considered the headliner.
unfortunately, sigur ros is nowhere near big enough here in the states to warrant that. they are top 3 acts for me this year, and i'm sure a lot of people here feel the same way, but a lot of people in america are probably not familiar. i have never heard sigur ros on the radio.
I have a real hard time seeing Sigur Ros close the festival on the main.
I would very satisfied with this lineup as of today with the only major conflict for me being Hot Chip vs Spiritualized. I would have to see some half sets of course, but that is to be expected.
Can I ask what the Sigur Ros/main stage obession is about?
I thought the goal was to get your favorite band in the smallest venue possible (modest mouse outdoor for instance).
Agree. It would be a bold move and the crowd would be smaller but I just can't see Sigur Ros playing against the headliner. It would be very distracting to have Phoenix blaring in the background unless you are deep in the crowd at the Outdoor.
Nah, there is no way Phoenix could follow Sigur Ros(you know what I mean)
Sigur Ros will play the outdoor and New Order will close it down while Phoenix is on the main stage.
In the Friday thread, some clashfinder changes for Saturday were discussed earlier. Anyways, I just changed it to have Sigur Ros finishing their set as Phoenix starts. How does that look?
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
Where do I access your set times? I looked but can't find.
I will say, the Hawtin set at Moog was very sparsely attended.
F: AC/DC, Nero, Cloud Nothings, Lykke Li, Interpol, George Ezra, Azealia Banks, Todd Terje, Gorgon City
S: Parquet Courts, Perfume Genius, Danny Tenaglia, Kasabian, Jack White, Royal Blood, TWOD, Chet Faker, What So Not
S: The Orwells, OFF!, St. Vincent, Gesaffelstein, Joyce Manor, Lil B, Kaskade, Madeon
Yeah, I don't see all the headliners playing to a silent outdoor. Maybe two nights like recently. But the question is, which?
Blur and Stones Roses make the most sense, since it seems like Goldenvoice is trying to make a point of showcasing them. Maybe someone in between the both of them, overlapping by like 10-20 minutes.
If it's going to happen on two nights I think it will be Sunday and Friday.
I am sure they're going to get Refused timeslot in the outdoor. That makes the most sense.
Plus, they've indicated that they don't like to play during the day. I'm sure GV will respect that request,
