Thread: Best sand storm set?

    Default Best sand storm set?

    Somehow, someway, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds put on a great show in 2013 despite rough conditions. Don't know how they managed to sound that good.

    Runner up: queens of the stone age 2014.

    The expected dust storm reminded me of the expected El Nino. But it's always good to be prepared.

    Eric Prydz with sand blowing through the lasers was definitely a moment for me.

    Agreed! The lasers were great, however, walking out of the tent into complete hell, getting nailed by a cardboard trashcan combined with the last show of the last day "blues" was a MAJOR downer.

    It started as their set ended, but Warpaint 2014.

    There was a dust devil in the tent immediately after their set.

    I was there. Sound was horrible in Gobi that whole weekend, but somehow that set was still great with Jessie Ware singing and all.

    2013 Eric Prydz; met a couple who had no idea who he was, convinced them to stick it out as I was by myself.

    They loved every minute of it, so did I.

    Holy fuck. Seriously? I had no idea, and it's soo fitting as me and Eddie were shrooming pretty hard for their set.

    I don't know why, but my memory thought Queens were on Sunday? But man, that dust storm during their set was intense as fuck and they still killed it.

    Hell yeah. How was shrooming for that set? Debating between that and acid for this year...Depending on set time, I guess.

    Red Hot Chili Peppers - it was the f'n Sahara desert.

    Everyone got sand blasted...so much it hurt at times.




    Moral of this thread....GET A DUST MASK AND SAFETY GLASSES....or cough up dirt for 3 days.
