Thread: DRONES

    Default DRONES

    I haven't noticed anyone talking about the drone light shows that happened at the mainstage before the headliners (at least Friday/Saturday; I assume Sunday as well?). Those were awesome, in my opinion. The music was great, the visuals were solid. I'd originally thought they were Gaga's, but she didn't use them. Reminded me a lot of the Creator's Project. Very cool.

    If it counts as "art", i'd say it's the best piece I have seen at Coachella in a very long time. Stopped us dead in our tracks Friday night.

    From Intel, I believe. Same ones that did the super bowl halftime show. They were initially in talks with Coachella to premier them there, but decided on the super bowl instead.

    Ugh this shit was SO COOL. And if it wasn't for watching them for such a long time over by the Outdoor on Saturday night, I would have totally missed Lauryn Hill's guest performance. Definitely a highlight of this year, and personally I thought this year was excellent.

    I caught this Friday and Saturday. I was very cool, though it was a bit out of nowhere and not announced in any formal way, so even though I was out in the middle of the field by the piñata things when it started on Friday, it didn't seem like that many people around me really noticed what was going on.

    But yeah watching those things move about and form different shapes was mesmerizing.

    Maybe they didn't call it art because it was an Intel thing, but I was pretty surprised they didn't make a bigger deal about it ahead of time. Amazing stuff.

    I didn't see the drones weekend 2. Maybe they only came out weekend 1?

    Damn, I feel pretty bad for Weekend 2 if they didn't get the drones. Anyone know why that might have been?

    Nice! I was thinking about putting my version of this video up, since it's basically the exact same video. I didn't realize I had caught the show at the very beginning.
