We’ve meditated. We’ve speculated. We’ve anticipated. Now, after months of torture, we finally know the official set times for Weekend 1 of Coachella 2012.
As we expected, conflicts abound — even if you’re a die-hard EDM fan and couldn’t care less about the other talent on display. Swedish House Mafia or Amon Tobin or Datsik on Friday night? Would you rather close Saturday with Kaskade or Sub Focus? Would choose David Guetta over Flying Lotus? How about SBTRKT over Miike Snow? On Sunday, would Justice give you a better time than Nero? Will Avicii’s new live show be more memorable than Modeselektor or DJ Shadow? Gaslamp Killer or Dada Life?
Things are further complicated if you’re looking forward to some of the non-EDM acts at Coachella, including (but not limited to): The Black Keys, Explosions in the Sky, M83, The Rapture, Arctic Monkeys, Radiohead, Bon Iver, Kasabian, The Shins, Buzzcocks, Kaiser Chiefs, Childish Gambino, Dr. Dre & Snoop Dogg (and Eminem and Warren G and Wiz Khalifa), Florence + The Machine, Gotye, and araabMUZIK.
We’re still deciding where we’ll be, and we urge you all to take your time while you choose which artists to spend your precious time with.
Let us know what you’re conflicted about, and who you’re most excited to see in the comments. We’ll see you all in two days.
