Get on it GV
Their set in 1999 made me think they were calling aliens to the field! Always happy for them to be back!
It's impossible to not have fun at a Chemical Brothers set unless you're a tasteless asshole.
this is true. It was that set that really got e into everything they've done. Still need to see a live set.
So much fun. DO IT, GV!!!
I doubt they'll bring the Brothers back without a new album/tour. Costs a lot for a group like that to fly across the pond.
but what stage would they play???
Honestly, they should play every year.

It was odd seeing the Sahara so empty that late in the day and the ground felt like a little league infield.
We need the Bros to work it out in 2015. If we could get a 2005 repeat set I would melt right there in the Sahara tent. If you were there you know what I'm talking about
I didn't think the 2011 set was anything to write home about, but maybe i've seen them enough. The very late start also did a lot to kill the excitement. I'd like to see them take back the Sahara with a DJ set though.
I always, always welcome them back.

So did I, actually. Walked into the Sahara after Little Dragon at one of Big Gigantic's pinnacle solo sax moments. It delivered the lulz. Then I left.
