Just Like Heaven set times (Passion Pit vs Ra Ra Riot is ’00s buzz band blasphemy!)
2000s-indie nostalgia fest Just Like Heaven, one of the non-Coachella fests we recommend in 2019, is this weekend and set times are out now. The fest happens Friday (5/3) (tickets) and Saturday (5/4) (sold out) with almost the same lineup both days, and almost the same set times both days.
It’s a pretty small lineup so thankfully there aren’t too many overlaps, but if it was actually 2009, that Passion Pit vs Ra Ra Riot conflict both days would be pretty brutal. At least Tokyo Police Club aren’t on at that time too, but damn that you need to get there bright and early at noon to see them. Peter Bjorn and John are on right after TPC at 12:40. Shiny Toy Guns overlap with PB&J and Louis XIV overlap with MGMT‘s 6:20 set on day one, and Shiny Toy Guns and Louis XIV trade places on day two. The only other tough conflict is Yeah Yeah Yeahs vs Neon Indian both days. You can see Phoenix, Beach House, The Rapture, and Grizzly Bear without conflict. Check out the full set times below.
