It's not godawful, but Coachella usually blows my knickers off. First time I can remember looking at one of their lineups and shrugging ambivalently. There's a lot of stuff I wouldn't mind seeing (again, for the most part), but I couldn't bring myself to make the trip down there.
This will be a slow burning excitement for me. Some artists in the undercard immediately make me squirm with excitement, but HOLY FUCK did they absolutely fuck themselves over with headliners. Looks like maybe deadmau5 bailed last minute as well? Who's the Friday night main stage EDM act?
A lot of really cool stuff I never expected on this lineup. Funny how everyone lost their shit over the Primavera lineup because their undercard was so great, yet people are bitching about Coachella because their headliners suck.
I wonder what the consensus would be if the Knife was at Coachella instead of Primavera?
