10goldbees the total size for all sets is 146 GB, but you can definitely select which sets you want to download if you're using something like uTorrent. I'm sure just about every torrent program has the same options.
Holy S that's a giant torrent! Must be in great quality to average out to 1.6GB per show.
Rolling Stone's summary of Kendrick's set is crazy... It definitely seems like the writer was probably tired and hadn't really listened to DAMN. and then projected his feelings onto the whole crowd.
"It's official: In 2017, rap took over Coachella. If there's a single theme for this year it's the ubiquity and attendance for the top hip-hop artists, with Travis Scott, Future, Schoolboy Q and more making more noise than any other genre. Hitting the stage with the explosive "DNA" on Sunday night, Kendrick Lamar volleyed between high points like the Travis Scott-assisted "Goosebumps" and more of his slower, jazzier work. It wasn't till about 20 minutes into his set that Compton's finest dropped the sizzurp-laced chorus of "Swimming Pools" that the main stage closing out Coachella 2017 truly came alive. With his backdrop bleached in black and white, Lamar slipped directly into "Bitch Don't Kill My Vibe." Then Schoolboy Q entered the stage, eager to finish a rendition of "That Part" that he couldn't complete after the sound went out on his own set. But even that felt a bit sleepy, and when K-Dot segued into "Money Trees," it still felt a couple bpms slow. If you took the temperature at this moment, you could feel the cool reception when he asked "Coachella are you out there?" and the response was warm but noticeably exhausted. Future joining the Coachella stage for "Mask Off" and the braggadocious ripple of "Humble" stirred the crowd, but whatever momentum built was quickly lost during an extended encore break. It's not that Kendrick didn't demonstrate his gargantuan skillset this warm Coachella evening, it's more that he seemed to purposefully select his slower, more thoughtful work. After returning to the stage post-encore, Lamar eased into "Love" from his just released Damn., which was a lush, beautiful and tasteful way to send the Coachella crowd quietly into the desert night."
That Hans Zimmer set was so gloriously out of left field, it had to be end up being the grande spectacle it was. They captured the feeling of that set pretty well. Minds were melted everywhere, and I think he sold a few tickets for that tour as I'm sure Druid wasn't the only one watching that jumped on that shit. I don't have a best to worst, but I did love, hate and learn shit this year. Hate would go to Marshmello. I can put up with some pretty silly EDM and don't even mind some of the more commercial shit like Jack U. I was in tears laughing at how terrible the bits and pieces I watched were. I understand it's not to be taken seriously. But it's kind of a package of every bad EDM cliche there is rolled into one long set. I also don't get the appeal as people I know you would think completely would hate on him don't. Luckily none of my kids are in that number.
I loved Radiohead, Bonobo live, Tycho live, Kendrick, Gucci mane and Schoolboy Q sets. I caught the very end of Empire of the Sun where the Asian painted motif dude broke a guitar and started running and jumping another one into an amp. It was loud, feeding back and almost Who like. I don't know if that's standard for them or not. I saw part of a set once from the back between sets, but they never really interested me enough to pay attention. Oh Wonder, Phantogram and The XX had solid sets. Royksopp and Moderat were some cool new sets for me. I missed a lot of the big shit like Justice, Shadow, Gaga, Future, New Order etc due to sleep or conflicts. Khaled might not be the greatest, but he clearly has the respect of the hip hop community which is where it counts for him. Preoccupations were pretty entertaining, but not without sour notes and a couple of ad libs that went off the rails. Also Big Gigantic though fun was pretty musically uninspired. Oh and the Sigur Ros w/ L.A. Philharmonic and then as a 3 piece was outstanding. It should have probably been Sunday though which was a more chill day. That was just a sit back and listen show.

Last year they did a more limited vr stream but haven't seen any word if they will be repeating it. Shame too since I have a headset now and they only did 2 shows per day last weekend in that format. I assumed it was being done as a test for this weekend's more full fledged effort but silence up to this point has me doubting it.
