I don't think it's very surprising there's no webcast for artists like Radiohead or Jeff Mangum, but Dr. Dre seems to to be launching a "comeback" of sorts with these two sets. Plus, with Eminem and Warren G on board and Dre's interest in Kendrick Lamar, I would think he would go for all the hype and exposure he can get.

Here's shax with your channel 9 weather report live on scene.
Wind has been off and on, but even when it's gusting it's still not remotely cold. It's been partly cloudy so far and I've felt a drop of rain every 30 seconds or so. I'm predicting gusts of good times with a 30% chance of scattered glow stick showers.
Ps I picked up enough booze to kill a small Sumatran village for next to no money. God bless Murrica!
Friday: SHM vs. Amon Tobin vs. Datsik (winner: Amon Tobin) EITS vs. M83 (winner: TBD at game time... likely Afrojack -> M83) Alesso vs. M. Ward vs. Pulp (winner: Pulp)
Saturday: Radiohead vs. Kaskade (winner: Radiohead) Zeds Dead vs. The Head and the Heart (winner: TBD at game time) Lots of minor overlap between starts and ends of sets, but nothing else too terrible
Sunday: DJ Shadow vs. Modeselektor vs. Avicii vs. Florence and the Machine. Honestly WTF. (winner: either DJ Shadow or Modeselektor) Girl Talk vs. Calvin Harris (winner: Calvin Harris, on the assumption that the crowd at Girl Talk will be full of hipster douchebags) The Weeknd vs. Nero (winner: The Weeknd) Beats Antique vs. Porter Robinson vs. Fitz and the Tantrums (winner: Beats Antique).
And the most annoying near miss: Morgan Page -> Lissie. This really surprised me, since I knew they'd both be early and Dr. Garbanzoured the odds of a conflict were low. It's not quite a conflict, but I'll probably miss the start of Lissie's set. Also: Morgan Page @ 12:00pm. That's going to be... early... for a dance party in the Sahara.
