Okay so now for my actual wishlist. Read over the entire thread and this is what I'd like to add or agree with -
Bjork is a good call. I would love to see her live. Daft Punk obviously but would likely sell out on their own, and is rumored (again) to be at Coachella for 2013. PAROV STELAR Loving the Portishead rumors Beardyman (I didn't get to go last year and almost did JUST to see him)
Went to Rock the Bells 2012 and these were the best acts n would love to see again -
Common Atmosphere Ice Cube Method Man & Red Man
A Tribe Called Quest (squashed from an earlier post) De La Soul Missy Elliott
Longwalkshortdock (cheap, from Vancouver, and one of the most high energy one man live acts you will ever see)
Carl Cox Girl Talk (never seen before and really want to) Z-Trip (the original king of mashups) Dub FX A-Trak Mike Relm (audio visuals) A. Skillz (one of the best) Infected Mushroom Bonobo
Dave Chappelle (is it true he's started to do stand up again?) Flight of the Conchords (funny and musicians. best of both worlds) Daniel Tosh (at a festival? ya that shit would be hilarious) Louis CK (I know he was just in Seattle, wish I could have gone. He never came to Vancouver though and I live in Victoria) Jon Lajoie (but only if he improvs things about the festival. I've seen his previous 2 tour acts so I don't need to see that again)
mykee - SIMIAN MOBILE DISCO will be playing in the dance tent. If you click on the bands name on the right side of the page it will take you to a profile of them. At the bottom of the profile it says what stage they are playing at. Here is the link that shows there stage.
I made the thread so when they DO get announced people can post them here. Geez why are people so anal on here? If this is anything like the vibe at the concert is count me out.
You're not all know it alls, get off your high horse.
"end thread"? lol.. are you an admin? ya didn't think so.
Take it easy, champ, you joined a big festival's board after DJ-ing at some small-time "what's it called again?" festival two years ago, and got off to a good start before screwing up by posting an unnecessarily duplicitous thread. Brush it off, let your thread fade into oblivion, and move on.
Pardon me? 2 years ago? I DJ massive festivals every Summer, as well as have my own entertainment company that's 10 years old now hosting club nights and parties. I've contributed more on Vancouver Island to events such as this one than you have anywhere I'm sure.
And this is not a duplicate thread. How hard is it to comprehend the meaning of it? A new artist gets announced, someone puts their name here. Simple as that. No need to keep replying showing us how elite you are on an internet message board.
This will be my first time going to this style of festival, and leaving my own province (BC) for. I really like the line up! I wish Chromeo was coming back again, I love them.. But guys, seriously, DON'T MISS SIMIAN MOBILE DISCO! Banging electro/techno.. so good! I just hope they have their awesome light show that goes along with it. They would definitely have to play at night time for this to work.
Also stoked to see Booka Shade, Massive Attack! Kid Cudi, Z-Trip and A-Trak!! YES!! I'm a DJ, and I love both of them. I just hope A-Trak plays some Electronic music like the stuff he's been producing lately and not a hip hop act.
I hope they add more dance/electronic acts, but I'm pretty satisfied with what is there either way!
There must not be a lot of Electronic fans here.. While I'm happy there's some artists there (and from what it looks like more than usual) but I would have liked to see more. You guys are in for a treat with people like Simian Mobile Disco, and Booka Shade. That said, I would have loved to see Trentemoller over Booka Shade, and some acts like Longwalkshortdock (Vancouver), Juno Reactor, or any kind of Live PA acts.
I'm not a fan of indie music at all so there's a lot of bands I will be avoiding but at the same time after doing some research on the acts performing I have found ones I do like and will see. Ones that are original sounding, and the hip hop acts all look decent too.
If you have purchased a premier camping ticket, which you stated you did, you will not need to buy a parking ticket. If you did, sell it.
Yes, you camp next to your car, and you go to the festival with your tent pitched, and everything valuable locked in your car. Any random can steel your tent if they really want to, but I've never heard of it happening.
You stay at the same spot all weekend, next to your tent, and your car.
THANK YOU! Now.. who wants to buy my premier parking pass.. heh
