Jimmy Kimmel was at it again the USA this week. His Lie Witness News team made their way to Coachella 2013 (which is held over two weekends somewhere in the desert in California) and asked people what they thoughts of a few bands that don’t exist.
Let’s face it folks, everyone can get hyped up at a music festival. Anyone can discover new acts that blow them away the first time they see them perform – I’m speaking out of personal experience. I’ll never forget the first time that I saw Fokofpolisiekar live at Oppikoppi (in 2004). I also won’t forget the first time I saw Matthew van der Want and Koos Kombuis at Oppikoppi (in 1998). All of these examples have made a musical impact on me. No one has hyped up a band or artist that does not exist for me though. I don’t want to sound arrogant, but I guess that I’m brighter than your average American.
I’m bummed that I’m missing Coachella 2013 though. Alt-J, Band of Horses, Ben Howard, Blur, Dropkick Murphys, Foals, Franz Ferdinand, Infected Mushroom, Moby, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, OMD, Paul Oakenfold, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rodriguez, The Lumineers, The Stone Roses, Violent Femmes, Two Door Cinema Club and countless other artists are performing there. Check out this hilarious video clip that Jimmy Kimmel Live posted about the Lie Witness News team’s visit to Coachella 2013 below. Just seeing this is giving me the urge to get my pair of festival Converse on – it happens when I watch any form of festival clip
