    Default Coachella AHZ (After Hans Zimmer) ideas

    What unconventional festival bookings would you like to see after the smashing success of Hans Zimmer at Coachella?

    The top three that come to mind for me would be
    -Danny Elfman (Simpsons theme, Batman, Nightmare Before Christmas, maybe an Oingo Boingo tune or two?)
    -"Hamilton"
    -Misty Copeland and the American Ballet Theatre
    Alice Glass - The Echo, September 14
    St. Vincent - Paramount Pictures, October 7
    First Aid Kit - Theatre at the Ace Hotel, October 12
    The Make-Up - The Echo, October 12
    Arcade Fire - The Forum, October 20
    Coachella - Empire Polo Field, April 20-22

    I don't think many other composers would work as well as Hans did, personally...his scores employ such an epic sound, almost Sigur Ros-esque. John Williams, for example, would be pleasant, but not the same.

    Some sort of dance performance could be really cool, actually. And I thought it'd have been interesting if Coachella booked the Hamilton Mixtape this year, get a big guest-filled set with The Roots, Usher, Regina Spektor, Ben Folds, Ashanti, Ja Rule, etc. But I proposed that in some thread and got laughed out of the room, haha.

    As for Misty Copeland, ballet doesn't really work like that. It'd have to be a company, not a dancer. The SF Ballet does some incredible 30-45 minute contemporary pieces that would be awesome to close the outdoor one night. Yuri Possokhov's "The Rite of Spring" would blow people's minds.

    Is Hans returning in 2 years an option? B/c Coachella has done that with smashing success stories before...and I would certainly welcome this one!

    I'm chalking this up to a once-in-a-lifetime experience out on the polo fields - being close was mind-blowing, what an awesome experience.
    Friday: Radiohead / King Gizz / Bonobo / Father John Misty / Sampha / Loco Dice / Big Gigantic / Crystal Castles / Jagwar Ma
    Saturday: Moderat / Avalanches / Tycho / Floating Points / Schoolboy Q / Warpaint / Royskopp / Breakbot / Local Natives / Car Seat Headrest / Thundercat / Ben UFO / Swet Shop Boys / Mitski / TDCC / Roisin Murphy
    Sunday: Kendrick Lamar / Hans Zimmer / New Order / Kaytranada / Maya Jane Coles / Devendra Banhart / Tale of Us / Whitney / Preoccupations

    Vangelis in a spot like Dead Can Dance, would be masterful.

    That kind of makes me want John Carpenter to never play Coachella out of purely inflated self-importance. Such self-importance that I am now going to make a Reddit thread about it. Go me

    I wish I had scene Scala and the Kolacny brothers when they played. I don't know what they could bring that may be similar but I would welcome some sort of similar act, like a choir that sang cross genre contemporary music.

    I would just make whatever venue hosts such an event a "no bro talk" area.
    I have been to concerts. I will go to concerts in the future.

    Seu Jorge's Life Aquatic. His set at the Hollywood Bowl was incredible.
