I don't understand why so many of ya'll are putting Skrillex on which. If Bassnectar, Pretty Lights, Shrpongletron Experience, Deadmau5, Girl Talk, Tiesto, Oakenfold, etc. all played in tents with their giant light shows, what makes you think Skrillex won't too. I see him Friday in This at 12:00 or 2:00.
im not a skrillex fan, but he is huge.
id rather have somebody i like on Which, but the way I look at it, he will take a huge crowd with him, which should thin out the rest of the late night tents. this will make it easier for me to see somebody im looking forward to without being stuck outside of the tent.
Hopefully Umphreys Mcgee. I saw them last fall and they have started putting Jamtronic in their set. With spots previously filled by STS9 and Disco Biscuits, they should get closing Saturday night at That Tent. I can see Major Lazer close out Friday This Tent following Skrillex. I mean if Tiesto was in a tent during his Elements of Life world tour, I don't see Skrillex making the jump to a stage.
Obviously it's a little hard to guess, and I'm making my lineup in the hopes I can see all of FlyLo, Major Lazer, SBTRKT, and Battles. That being said I doubt it will happen. I'd like to see Santigold too, and she seems like a good fit for late night to me.
Friday Which: The Roots This: Big Freedia -> Dumpstaphunk -> The Word That: Major Lazer -> Flying Lotus The Other: Luda -> Black Star
Which: Skrillex This: Santigold -> SBTRKT That: Umphrey's McGee -> Bad Brains The Other: Battles -> Mogwai
Yeah, with Danzig, Puscifer, and Danzig added it could be really tough to make space. I honestly hope it's Battles in order to resolve some late night conflicts I'll be having otherwise. Late night is looking phenomenal this year though. I'm excited to say the least.
My strongest hope is for an Umphreys late night, preferably tent closer. In fact such a set would be my third most anticipated set after Phish and Radiohead. I would love to have an epic UM set late night Saturday into sleep into a Sunday that builds up to Phish.
Also hoping for some sort of SBTRKT / Flying Lotus pairing, like everyone else is.
Skrillex will get the Which stage late. Whether or not I catch him depends on conflicts. Chances are something awesome will be conflicting with him. I caught Skrillex last fall, will catch him this weekend in New Orleans, and again at Hangout Fest, so he definitely will not be a priority for me come June.
I think there's a huge range of bands that could be late night. 2 Whichs + 12 (maybe 13) tent acts means 15 slots.
Skrillex is a lock for Which.
SBTRKT, Flying Lotus, Major Lazer, The Word and Dumstaphunk are locks for late night, all probably tents.
I think Umphrey's McGee, Danzig, and Santigold are likely for late night slots. That's nine total so far that I'd bet on.
Then Dispatch, Black Star, The Roots, Ludacris, Puscifer, Mac Miller, Childish Gambino, Little Dragon, Bad Brains, Battles, Mogwai, Big Gigantic, and Big Freedia are all very plausible additions to late night. That brings it up to 22, so 7 of the above bands will probably not be getting late night slots.
I'd also say there's an outside shot of the Superjam and Kendrick Lamar being late night as well. I'm very curious to see this late night lineup.
