I wouldn't worry too much. They played a venue that is about the equivalent of a broom closet here last week.
Agreed. I try not to take too much stock in the percentages of people going here. Most people don't research every single act on the line-up. A majority of people will be at Orbital with Death Grips and Dolby making a strong showing. I see Trust and Hecker/Lopatin in a heated race for 4th place.

Yeah, my post was only half serious. This board can definitely warp one's perspective. I was arrowing over all the names on the schedule earlier, and I was surprised to see that Santigold and Miike Snow have more likes than everyone except Orbital and Squarepusher. It makes sense, they're both popular and highly billed, but they're hardly mentioned in this thread.
I think GLand is right, Hecker/Lopatin and Trust will probably run neck and neck. With the crowds both those drew individually last year, and the insane amount of competition this year, I don't see that show cracking the 300 mark.
If Heckers set is any indication, last year, this set will be just as empty.
Remember where he was. The set probably wasn't nearly as empty as it felt since he was in a space waaaaaay too big for him. There is also the power of it being Hecker AND Lopatin... well, if more people figure out who Lopatin is.

That show won't be packed by any means. I joke about the 4 people but I don't think anymore than 100, tops, given the conflicts. It's gonna fall in the "cool if there wasn't any conflicts to see" category. Given the fact it's opposite Orbital, I bet the same thing will apply.
