Coachella 2012 Saturday RPM Preview: Kaskade Vs. Radiohead, EDM Hell & More

Filed under: ,


While Friday’s lineup provided an almost perfect balance of dance and electronica, Saturday is a bit more scattered, skewing towards the stadium-house, “EDM” side of things, thus we’ll be avoiding the rave tent at all costs, save one early exception.

Despite some of the more regrettable choices made by the festival’s programmers (ie booking Swedish House Mafia both as individual members and as a group, how dumb do they think … forget it), there are still some pretty bright highlights on Saturday, albeit not necessarily all in the dance/electronica world.

Feel secure in your decision to catch up on sleep Saturday morning, if you’re able, and ease into the day, either with Vancouver’s resident indiepop-jazz weirdo-genius Destroyer at the Outdoor Theatre at 2:30PM, or new electro-hipster rap find Azealia Banks at 2:50 at the Gobi.
