Pure Filth announces line-up for its annual Coachella campground afterparty: Magnetic Man, Mary Anne Hobbs, Caspa headline [Updated]

January 24, 2011 |  3:28 pm

PFcoachellaThose looking for a little help making room for all the acts playing Coachella got a boost today when L.A.-based promoter Pure Filth, which is in charge of the only Coachella-sanctioned afterparty over the three-day event, announced the lineup for its campground stage.

The beat-oriented party, predictably, draws most of its acts from the Coachella lineup, but schedules them in a more dance-friendly timeframe.

The party doesn't really get going until after midnight, so those acts stuck in daytime slots on the polo grounds will have a chance to bewitch their fans at the proper hour: the middle of the night. And what better time to see Magnetic Man (Benga, Skream and Artwork) scrub the field with heavy bass? And if shocking L.A. hip-hop collective Odd Future (OFWGKTA on the poster) is worried about offending tender ears during the day, rest assured they'll be delivering the nasty, misogynist stuff in the evening (great, just what we need).

Updated 1:14 p.m., Jan. 25, 2011: The flyer above was posted on promoter Pure Filth's website on Monday, but on Tuesday the site issued a note explaining that "an overzealous intern" had incorrectly published a fake flyer as real. Below is text of the full post from Purefilthla.com:

Yesterday the graphic creativity of an ardent Coachella fan combined with the work of an overzealous intern led to the posting and subsequent dissemination of information regarding the artists playing on the epic Pure Filth sound system at the festival this year.

To clarify:

 - Pure Filth sound system will be hosting a stage inside the Coachella festival in 2011.

 - Artists confirmed to play on this Pure Filth stage include (in no particular order): Beardyman, Jakes, Breakage, 12th Planet, Mt. Kimbie, OFWTKTA, Kyle Hall, Andy C & G.Q, Lil’ B, DJ Hype, Mary Anne Hobbs, DJ Marky, DJ Kentaro, SBTRKT, Ras G, Alf Alpha, High Contrast, DJ Zinc, Kode 9, Ramadanman, Terror Danjah, Thunderball, Take, Roska, Lorn, Tokimonsta, Zed Bias and Goth-Trad with more TBA.

- Information about the Pure Filth afterparty in the Coachella campgrounds will be revealed soon. No artists have been announced for this lineup yet.

- The flyer circulating online that celebrates Coachella’s “bass heads” and boasts the Pure Filth logo was made by an excited fan. Although Pure Filth helped to book some of these performers and every artist on the flyer is indeed playing at Coachella, this rogue flyer does not represent the lineup of the Pure Filth stage at the festival.

Truly this reflects the spirit of the Coachella music festival, which is not a dualistic “show” that divides the performer and the audience, but rather an event for and of the community. From excited fans that create their own flyers and passionate forum commenters to social media users who spread the word and their enthusiasm, Coachella calls to people and engages them to plunge in and participate rather than stand behind the lines and watch.

Pure Filth apologizes for any misunderstanding the rogue flyer may have caused.

Pop & Hiss will keep you posted on the real Pure Filth afterparty when it's announced.
