    Agreed. Seems like a lazy move on their part. I'm glad the money went to good causes, but the fact that they made a post on facebook asking who we wanted to see in place of Death Grips is what makes it a little annoying. Had they not mentioned anything about a replacement, this whole thing would've been a nice surprise and we would've all been stoked. However, because they set an expectation, I was hoping they'd follow through on that.

    Regardless, we are 23 days away and I couldn't be more excited for this weekend to come.

    But did they actually promise a replacement, or did they say they would just try to find one?

    I rather have extended time slots for the other bands and not some random replacement. When Baroness and Wild Flag dropped off two years ago, FYF's replacements (I forgot who) where nowhere near as rocking. Don't replace rock bands with synth-pop.

    Yeah, I recall them asking what bands people would like as a replacement, and that's it. I don't remember them ever explicitly saying that there would be one.

    They should have donated the money and used the extra time to recreate the Death Grips no-show extravaganza, featuring cannons that shoot out churros from the stage. Boom, everyones happy.

    Again, I'm fine with the lineup as it is, but when a festival promoter asks the public who it would like to replace an act that has cancelled, it seems reasonable to assume it's not a rhetorical question.

    Always great to come to the Coachella message board to be reminded of the things that are considered problems these days.

    So what is this supposed to mean exactly. The intention is pretty clear.

    To me, it just means that people shouldn't be super upset about the fact that FYF "promised" anything. Thanks for pointing out that they did exactly what i said they did.

    But you dont deny the fact their statement actually had the intention of replacing death grips, right? If they did not INTEND to book another act, why go out of the way and ask? Thats the part youre missing out on. You just think making such open ended statements, provides a get out of jail free card for whatever that ends up being decided upon. ''Well, we didnt really INTEND to do anything, so why are you so upset'' is the attitude everyone is supposed to maintain? If this was an act that was one line higher, you would be asking for more answers. But since its somebody that's for all intents and purposes ''marginal'' given their reputation, you just shrug your shoulders, yes?

    I don't understand what you are trying to get me to admit here. My statements that they didn't explicitly state they were going to replace them or that they made a promise stand. That's all I said. I didn't express any opinions either for or against FYF Presents regarding this matter.

    Maybe they tried to find a replacement but couldn't find anyone they deemed worthwhile? Who gives a fuck? Longer set times, even if only by a few minutes, is a much better option than throwing in someone like Touche Amore or Title Fight (*again*) just to make people feel like they're getting their money's worth.

    Yeah, cause Dillinger, United Nations of DFA 1979 wouldnt be worthwhile for the festival, yes?
