Well? Yes I know I included 2 repeats but there is a demand for them so why not? Can you think of anyone else I should have added? You can multi choice on this one.

This is a bit limited, and I have read a whole Aphex Twin discussion on this board - Team, I like AT but I'm another who does not think he\this is popular enough to be last on.
Also, I will take bets of any reasonable size that the Smiths will not reunite - ever.
So, probably Beck or Radiohead.

I saw your request on the other thread..I would LOVE Tom Waits to headline...

EDIT: Damnit I should have put Tom Waits on that list..

No, I'm afraid not, by the time I realised that gig was on it was sold out and the black market price was about £500 and believe it or not, I didn't have it handy. I hope he does play in some capacity next year.

the closes thing to live I have seen of his is a performance on Conan O Brien back in May. Even on the tv screen the performance was incredible.

Well, all of them would be cool, but I dont think all of them would be headliner worthy. I narrowed it down to the 5 I would like to see most...

SOAD, Talking Heads, David Bowie, Radiohead, Outkast.

And Tom Waits should have been on that list. Even though im not sure if he is headliner material.

Morrissey Turns Down $75 Million for Smiths Reunion
Celibacy, vow of poverty...yep, he's becoming a priest

Morrissey money shocker! According to a new press release about Morrissey's previously reported fall U.S. tour, "In an effort to stop the speculation and kill off the rumor mongers who seem to use these things to take advantage of committed fans, we can tell you that one thing the future will not bring is a Smiths' reunion tour."

Turns out Moz was approached with an offer of $75 million smackers, payable upon completion of at least 50 worldwide shows provided Johnny Marr was in the band (no love for Andy and Mike?). Morrissey-- who'd like it to be known once and for all that it's not about the music but, rather, about the hurting-- turned them down. Morrissey previously bragged about how Coachella offered the Smiths $5 million to reunite, but that, it appears, was small potatoes.

In a related story, Modest Mouse doesn't have $75 million dollars either. Sorry, Johnny!

On two of this tour's lengthy runs, a pair of special offers has been made to Moz megafreaks. Starting August 27, fans will have a chance to buy tickets to all ten of the L.A. shows for the price of nine, or all five New York shows at a savings of $125. Those who pony up for the deals will get special commemorative (magic?) tickets that allow them into the general admission shows before everyone else. New York fans get a poster, but L.A. attendees get to see Morrissey ten times, so neener neeners.

Nestled in the same press release was this nugget of uncertainty: "these shows will be the last Morrissey will do for the foreseeable future." Indeed, that's a quip in line with the kind of dramatic overstatement we've come to know and love from Moz, but is he for real? Could these be the last Morrissey shows... evah?

guess no Coachella EVER....

Anyone who would pay to see any performing artist 10 times (even at the low, low price of 9 shows) in a 2 week period is kinda stupid in my opinion. I know it's different strokes for different folks and all that, but even if money isn't an issue, how fucking different is each show going to be? Are people that easily entertained? If I really like a movie, I can watch it about 2-3 times in one year and that's it. I can't watch it again for several years afterward. (Eternal Sunshine being the sole exception, and even that I've refused to watch on numerous occasions this year.) And though a live performance is obviously different from a movie, each performance to the next isn't going to be that different. Seeing the Arcade Fire on consecutive nights or Radiohead a few times in different cities over a few weeks -- that's more understandable. But paying what are bound to be exorbitant prices to see a singer at a residency (I'm sure he's not going to even 3 different venues in Los Angeles, but even if he is, my point still stands) 10 fucking times -- that's lunacy. That's like those idiots who buy each new VHS/Laser disc/DVD/Blu-Ray/whatever version of Star Wars. It just baffles me why anyone would invest that much money on one artist. Spread the love around! I'm seeing Daft Punk for the third time at Vegoose, but the difference there is that it'll be the third time in 18 months (not quite the same as 10 shows in 2 weeks) and only one of those performances were they the headlining act. Seeing them at Coachella and Vegoose means I get to see several other artists over that weekend, so while Daft Punk is the main reason I'm going, they're far from the only reason. (Don't think it was necessary to provide a defense against potential allegations of my hypocrisy, but I thought it best to be proactive.)

What if everyone's assumption that Radiohead will be the headliner from 2004 to repeat in '08 is wrong? The Cure moving their tour to the spring seems awfully convenient. And if Radiohead plays Coachella, isn't there a sort of freeze on when they can play southern California again on either side of the festival? I'm more of a Radiohead fan than a Cure fan, but just sayin'.

I'm wondering how the hell they're gonna top RATM as this year's headliner with all those crazy fans, so my thoughts are that the first day, we'll see Radiohead, the day after it'll be David Bowie, and the festival will close out with No doubt reunion. I was gonna say REM will close out the fest, but I have a feeling that they'll hold out for Bonnaroo instead. My Bloody Valentine will take the "Pixies" award for the most anticipated reunion (expect a lot of old emo kids with their stupid haircuts and dead-skinny jeans), and everyone will be abuzz for the Portishead and the Avalanches first US showings in ages. Chances are that Coldplay will play too, since its about the time when they are supposed to have new album out. Likely performers are also M.I.A., Ghostland Observatory, Numero#, Operator Please, and Gnarls barkley. I would kill babies to see The Knife perform there, seriously, infants. So yeah, expect great things next year

Everything here is entirely plausible...I could easily see Coldplay playing the sub headliner part to a David Bowie or Radiohead but I don't see David Bowie in the near future..at least not with all the buzz of Portishead, MBV and No Doubt.

Considering that Smashing Pumpkins are headlining KFMA Day here in Tucson in just under 2 weeks, an event whose tickets initially went on sale for $20, I sort of doubt that they'll headline Coachella. Sure, they're doing bigger fests, too, like Bang in Miami, but that only strengthens the case against them headlining Coachella. And if they're not headlining, will Billy Corgan still want to play or will his ego keep him away?

I've said it before, and I'll say it again; fuck D'arcy. The only thing that bitch ever contributed to the Pumpkins was the decision to cover "Never Let Me Down"...

James DID contribute more, but to say that the Pumpkins were truly a four-piece in the conventional sense is laughable... Real fucking laughable... Hence why I would accept (and want to see) the current incarnation of the Pumpkins perform live. Plus, Jimmy's a drumming machine, and yet he's overlooked ALL the fucking time.

Also, TCHY, I'll mark those words... When Portishead shows up as the main sub-headliner for one of the nights.

rage patton
09-04-2007, 12:00 PM
When the Pumpkins started they were a four piece. It eventualy became Billy's band later in thier career. That is why the band broke up.
Now that Billy has had a couple failed projects, he needed to be back in the Spotlight and make some more money. So he called his BFF Jimmy, and forgot to call a couple other.
Either way. Zeitgiest is a fuckin abortion. Ive had shit that sounds better than that album. Let the "Smashing Pumpkins" play as they are right now... just dont play a single fuckin song off Zeitgiest.

And Portishead wont be a headliner. But they would make for a GREAT sub-headliner. Hmmm... would they play before the headliner on the main stage? OR,play in the Sahara after the headliner? Like Daft Punk? I think Portishead in the sahara would be amazing.

PassiveTheory
09-04-2007, 11:29 PM
Rage... you listen to Portishead at all?... I mean that sincerely... Also, have you ever go IN the Sahara tent at all?...

The Sahara = dance music.
Portishead = downtempo acid jazz... sort of like Massive Attack but no hip-hop and one singer (and a bunch of other things, but I'm trying to make a simple comparison here, people)

Yeah, that would be a miserable mix. My hopes are that Portishead get the Tiesto spot for this year and play the mainstage AFTER the headliner (hence why I have them pegged for the night w/ No Doubt) because the moon, the night breeze, it all sets up a perfect setting for Beth Gibbons and co. to work their magic.

It eventually became Billy's band, Rage? Please, how many song writing credits do you see D'arcy's name on? Less than 10 songs, and if we're talking after Gish (which is, by far, the worst Pumpkins record, even Zeigeist is better) then most likely NONE. As for Billy's "BFF" Jimmy? Please... I don't think you remain BEST friends with the guy who kicked your ass sans-remorse out of the band at the height of the band's popularity (mind you, Jimmy warranted getting his ass kicked out) and you know what? I figure the Pumpkins have as valid a reason as RATM does to get back together, it's not like Zach de la Rocha was lighting the world aflame with his solo material (and please, don't repeat the spoonfed line of "we're here to deliver the knock out punch to the Bush administration" from Tom Morello, because that's definitely full of crap [and, worse, a good half-decade late]) besides, I never had the chance to see the Pumpkins live in their initial incarnation, so I would be grateful to see them headline (given that I'm missing their solo tour), and, on top of that, I feel that they would bring in a mass amount of people and be headline-status-worthy.

I actually just picked up my first Portishead CD the other day. I actually like it quite a lot. I still think they could be in the Sahara though. Even though it is really downtempo, and not that dancable at all. It still is electronic music. After finaly listening to them though... I understand why everyone wants them there! I dont really care where they play!

Ok fine. Fuck D'Arcy. He could have atleast called Melissa Auf De Muar. He didnt even bother contacting her. Now what about James Iha writing credits. I would rather go to a Smashing Pumpkins show without Billy, but with James Iha. I have never been a huge fan of Billy or his voice. What got me into the Smahsing Pumpkins was the music. And to be exact, the guitar. Without James Iha, the Pumpkins mean nothing to me. And dont be fooled, Billy and Jimmy are sure as hell BFFs. Wasnt Jimmy the drummer for that disaster known as Zwan? Also, I thought Jimmy did partial drumming duties on Billy's solo album. Was Jimmy also Billy's drummer for his tour in support of his solo album? Now, Jimmy is the only other original member of the Smashing Pumpkins? Common. Billy has just kept Jimmy around because he knows he can just push Jimmy around. And just to let you know, I am not sure I would have made the trip down to California to see Rage Against The Machine if ANY of them were missing.

Hahahah, right, since, you know, last year there were talks of MBV reuniting... Right. That's laughable.

Also, Rage, just because it's electronic music doesn't mean it belongs in the Sahara...

Bands get asked to reunite all the time...how stupid are you?

Actually, some San Fran paper claimed that Morrissey and My Bloody Valentine were going to play this year.

You'd probably wish it on Suprefan, but it's a little late for that.

MBV aside, there's still no evidence that Tollet went after all of those bands (especially Bowie, and Pearl Jam? I thought everyone on here fucking hated Pearl Jam [I wouldn't complain if they headlined, mind you]) before the Chili Peppers... Either way, the point I made hasn't been refuted, that the Pumpkins couldn't headline this year's festival.

I equate MBV with Kraftwerk (and by the same token, Portishead) in the sense that they are immensely popular groups amid the non-top 40-base of listeners, but by no means a headliner for festival like Coachella.

Fuck you, Passive. There's no fucking way the Pumpkins are going to headline, it's been thoroughly refuted. For one, they're the worst reviewed festival headliner this year. I mean they sucked, it was fucking humiliating. For two, Coachella doesn't really have a track record of picking up last year's festivals leftovers. You're out of your goddamn curly mind.

Portishead should play the Massive Attack slot of '06, definitely not the sahara tent.

Please pick up Loveless and then come back and talk to us. 30 second clips don't do any justice to MBV. If you love Siamese Dream and the Cranberries then give MBV another chance since that album (well SP in general) and the Cranberries would have never existed without MBV. I say good day sir!!

There is some truth to Gogol. The recorded music is not so great but live is a entirely different story. While I don't dislike their records, I don't listen to them at that much. But please just pick up Loveless, give it a week, then come back. Honestly, at 1st it sounds quite odd but you grow to love them!
One of the greatest albums ever.

Personaly, I love Gogol Bordello's albums. I didnt have any before I saw them at Coachella. I had downloaded a few tracks, watched a couple videos and decided they were a must see. The day after I got back from Coachella, I bought Gypsy Punks. It still didnt stick right away, unlike thier live show. However, after a few listens, I thouroughly enjoy the entire album everytime I listen to it. All I can think of is thier live show when I listen to them... and I smile. Super Taranta was the same thing. I got it (two copies actually... dont ask) and after the first time I was like "This is good. Not as good as gypsy punks though. I wonder how the new songs will translate live?" After a few listens I am like "Damn! This a good album! But I still wonder how it will translate live..." Then I saw them just over a week ago, and the new stuff sounds great live! Even the slower songs on the album, Like Tribal Connection and Alcohol. My favorite song of Super Taranta is My Strange Uncles From Abroad. If you havent listened to that one, stick in the CD and listen to it! They didnt play it at the last show I went to though. The only song I cant get into, is Zina-Marina. My girlfriend loves that song... but there is just something about that song that bugs me. Other than that, I love their recorded music. Just give it a few more listens.
And TeamCoachella... was the show where you saw Gogol Bordello at the Red Rocks, the one where they were opening up for Manu Chao?

*yawn* Again, they picked up the Chili Peppers last year, enough said. And I don't really give a shit how greatly or poorly reviewed they've been on the festival circuit, there's still enough buzz about the band reuniting mainstream-wise for it to be a possibility. Still, it's early, and no one's a lock (sadly, not even Portishead or MBV) so we'll see.

Also, the Massive Attack slot from 06' sounds fitting for Portishead... But let's not tempt the fates and have them open for an aggressive band, I'd rather they closed out the night, a la Tiesto or Black Star.

They NEED to? I can think of some bands Portishead could play before, and it would probably be even better than closing the mainstage.

Portishead --> Radiohead
Portishead --> David Bowie
Portishead --> The Cure

There are plenty of acts where it would make more sense for them to play before the headliner on the mainstage. I think after the Massive Attack --> Tool scenario, no longer will GV schedule like that. For example, lets say Nine Inch Nails headline a day next year, GV would probably put Portishead on after NIN. But how awesome would it be seeing Portishead before Radiohead?

The real question is who could headline? Considering how Coachella headliners are "alternative" music bands that are large enough to tour arenas and amphitheaters, but still haven't completely lost their indie cred, and most came into existence or entered public awareness in the 90's, there aren't that many left. I guess it could help to bring in some respectable acts that have been around longer, like David Bowie and Neil Young or poppier acts like No Doubt and Duran Duran.

Sure, there's Talking Heads and The Smiths, but both are completely unrealistic. We already know Moz wouldn't play nice with Johnny Marr and find two other musicians for $75 million. So who CAN headline, realistically?

And Aphex Twin would NOT be a headliner. Maybe second line on the poster, but not top.

NIN
Coldplay

Guys that don't seem to fit the bill but...
Metallica (i think they were at Coachella last year because i saw something on my local radio stations website where they were covering Coachella and they were talking to the guys in Metallica and it said something underneath the picture like "so and so asks Metallica if they are headlining Coachella next year")
Eminem
Dr. Dre

Boourns, are we talking original headliners or rehashed ones? Because my answer to your question would vary on your answer.

Original. But first let's take a look at previous headliners:
Rage - too soon
RHCP - too soon
Bjork - too soon
Tool - too soon
Depeche Mode - too soon
NIN - a bit too soon, but they will be touring next year from what I understand
Coldplay - release date is a few months away, and the album will surely be released a few months after that, but still a bit too soon for them to headline again
The Cure - playing Hollywood Bowl 4 weeks later. no chance in hell.
Radiohead - tour starts around then, but they usually play Europe first, so hopefully they break tradition and do Coachella
Beastie Boys - I doubt it since they spent all 2007 touring, so 2008 sounds like break time...has anyone heard anything about them doing anything next year?
Oasis - new album in 2008, so maybe, but are they big enough to headline again considering how massive Coachella has become?
Janes Addiction - broke up again, but you know Perry Farrell will be there
Beck - awesome performer, but not big enough to headline a 60,000 person festival

Who else? The only alternative/indie rock acts that I can think of that are big enough (meaning they headline large arena/amphitheater gigs in American cities besides NY and LA), not counting reunions:
Pearl Jam - playing festivals and GA shows again, so why not
R.E.M. - new album on the way and recent live cd/dvd should invoke nostalgic memories. personally, I'd love to see them finally play, and I know they aren't as big a draw nowadays, but I think paired with a strong co-headliner (My Bloody Valentine), they'd work out fine since everyone knows them and most people at the festival would see them.
The Killers - ugh, I hope not, and I don't know what their 2008 plans are
Weezer - played in 01 and 05, but didn't headline. new album on the way, so maybe?
Foo Fighters - didn't headline in 2002, wouldn't in 2008, but definitely a contender for a second or third-billed act
Green Day - new album coming in 2008, but would be considered "too pop" with not enough crossover appeal with the rest of the traditional Coachella fare
Smashing Pumpkins - will they still be touring six months from now? I haven't heard. But in any case, 2007 was the year for this to happen at Coachella, and it didn't, but we got Rage instead, which was far more impressive.
Muse - aren't they going to be working on their next album at the time?
Outkast - a lot of people want this, but doesn't seem any less unlikely than usual
Kanye West - why not? he drew a huge crowd last year, so I'm sure he'd have some drawing power if he's actually listed on the poster next time.

Going against type:
David Bowie - people clearly want this to happen, but that doesn't make it so
Neil Young - would be great, no objections here...how likely is this?
Bob Dylan - definitely for Bonnaroo, but I really doubt Coachella
Metallica - considered the "jump the shark" moment of Lollapalooza, so no
U2 - never play festivals, but if they did, it would sell out instantly. there's also the problem of crossover appeal. a lot of fans of traditional Coachella fare also like U2, but the opposite is not as true. but people said the same about Rage, right?
Rolling Stones - too big
Bruce Springsteen - I predict The Boss for Bonnaroo 2008, where he can do a 3+ hour set
The Police - just make the pre-sale password "roxanne" again
Paul McCartney - I'll probably get a lot of shit for what I'm about to say, but I'd be down with this. would certainly beat spending $300 to see him at Staples Center
Duran Duran - new album, right?
Prince - never plays festivals, but would be a massive draw
Aerosmith - ahahahaha, what a joke
The Eagles - too disgusting to be a joke
Nickelback, Linkin Park, Evanescence, MCR, Britney Spears, Hinder, ICP, Maroon 5, Justin Timberlake, John Mayer - most of the fans of these bands aren't old enough to camp on-site, and don't forget the issue of crossover appeal (but I'm sure a lot of Coachellians would be down for seeing Justin in the tent)
Barry Manilow - he is music and he writes the songs!

Reunions:
The Smiths - will never happen
Talking Heads - as unlikely as ever, never even rumored
System of a Down - too soon, but I think there's a good chance of Serj Tankian playing his solo record
No Doubt - didn't they reunite for a Gwen Stefani gig earlier this year?
Pulp - would be second-billed at best, sadly
Blur - ditto (and having lunch together != reunion)
The Verve - ditto (this reunion is already happening)
My Bloody Valentine - ditto (already strongly rumored)
Portishead - ditto (arguably not a reunion)
Faith No More - I forget, but which project is Mike Patton with this week?
Pink Floyd - they'd have to increase the capacity to one million
Led Zeppelin - charity one-off does not mean a world tour, sorry
Soundgarden - doubt it. does anyone have anything to support or debunk such a reunion?
Stone Temple Pilots - doubt it. does anyone have anything to support or debunk such a reunion?
Creed - OMG FUCK YES! BEST COACHELLA EVAR!


So, what do you think?

Oh yeah, I forgot about that. His previous scoops qualify him as credible, but wasn't it too soon to call out headliners like that? I doubt all of next year's headliners are booked already, if any.

Bruce Springsteen would certainly be...different. But I think he'd fit in best at Bonnaroo, where he could play for 3+ hours.

Bah, I'm just looking for random reasons to believe he will come. There is hope, though. He was playing mainly unannounced shows for the last couple of years, but now he announced ATP in UK and some more gigs over Europe. A live perfomance would be insane. Bring the sandpaper and the food mixer!

The Smiths - will never happen
Talking Heads - as unlikely as ever, never even rumored
System of a Down - too soon, but I think there's a good chance of Serj Tankian playing his solo record
No Doubt - didn't they reunite for a Gwen Stefani gig earlier this year?
Pulp - would be second-billed at best, sadly
Blur - ditto (and having lunch together != reunion)
The Verve - ditto (this reunion is already happening)
My Bloody Valentine - ditto (already strongly rumored)
Portishead - ditto (arguably not a reunion)
Faith No More - I forget, but which project is Mike Patton with this week?
Pink Floyd - they'd have to increase the capacity to one million
Led Zeppelin - charity one-off does not mean a world tour, sorry
Soundgarden - doubt it. does anyone have anything to support or debunk such a reunion?
Stone Temple Pilots - doubt it. does anyone have anything to support or debunk such a reunion?
Creed - OMG FUCK YES! BEST COACHELLA EVAR!


So, what do you think?

I heard a rumor Roger Waters was going to be there...which is a strange rumor to begin with but a perfect place for his recent sets. I will fly back from Fl if he shows up and would choke my mother for tix if Pink Floyd gets back together (one can dream can't he)

What do you all think is the likelihood of Duran Duran or Smashing Pumpkins headlining? They are headlining V Australia in April, and while that in no way means they will play Coachella, it does mean they will probably be available to the possibility.

Anyway, from another thread, all the possible headliners I could think of:
R.E.M.
White Stripes (if Meg White gets over herself)
Beastie Boys
Oasis
Smashing Pumpkins
Duran Duran
The Killers (puke)
No Doubt
Green Day
Muse
Prince (highly unlikely)
U2 (even more unlikely)
Beck (subheadliner at most)
Weezer (ditto)
Portishead (guaranteed subheadliner)
The Verve (ditto)
A Tribe Called Quest (ditto)
Death Cab for Cutie (ditto)

Silverchair probably not, considering they're Australian and all.

Last years Rage Against the Machine performance was amazing. . .

I think Radiohead would be awesome, I could see coldplay on that line-up, and a No Doubt reunion would be good but I don't think gwen is done with her pop stuff just yet.

A system of a down reunion isn't headline material (at least not for a festival of coachella caliber, maybe they can sell out the Wiltern) and Serj Tankian is probably gonna be on the line-up doing his solo stuff which isn't so bad.

Manu Chao was amazing last year . . . but I know about they can't be on there two years in a row.

I'd like to see:
Gnarls Barkley
MURS
Felt
Jamiroquai
Daft Punk
Public Enemy

Don't really have any others, betao. When I saw Portishead was curating ATP that became an obvious lock, there's no way that's not happening. Umm... I can't reveal how I know exactly but the MBV rumors are pretty dead on, and Primal Scream is a good possibility as well. If not for Langerado I'd say REM might be a good shot, but that kinda makes me doubtful. What I'm really wondering now is who the young people's headliners are gonna be. Aside from that I don't have many other feelings.

I'd give 5-3 odds on Chem Bros and Underworld both being there, with Underworld being a dead lock.

Kanye West. Bank on it. He has yet to tour the US in support of Graduation except a few shows here and there. Kid Sister is confirmed to be playing Coachella and she's opening for Kanye on his tour so that makes him available. I'd also be willing to bet that REM is headlining a night because the way i look at it one of langerado's headliners is headlining and I highly doubt they go with two rap headliners. No clue on who would be the third headliner.

rage patton
12-26-2007, 12:24 AM
There were actually rumours about Primal Scream playing in 07. If it does happen, I guess GV decided to hold off on them until 2008.
Also, Portishead HAVE to be there next year. They are not headliner material though. But still. They will be there.
As for other headliners next year, I think either REM, Beastie Boys, Oasis or No Doubt. Of course, there are also rumours floating around GV is trying to get STP and/or Soundgarden back together for next year...

I'll gladly bet you 500 dollars Kanye isn't headlining, even give you 2-1 odds on it. He might perform, but he ain't headlining. I don't see why langerado's headliners have anything to do with Coachella's headliners. I think REM would be great, though, but them playing Langerado makes it dubious for me. No Doubt might be very possible, really. It skews to a young crowd and it'd be a big surprise, and I couldn't really blame them for taking No Doubt as long as they're getting Zep. STP would be awesome by me, no hunch one way or the other about it.

Technically that says that The Raconteurs are available to play, not that they are touring. Where's the Stripes agency page? Raconteurs might be at Coach then, but they wouldn't headline, secondline would be nice though. Ooo, Raconteurs before Zeppelin? That'd be choice I think.

Kanye isn't a Coachella headliner (a) because he's only had three albums, (b) because he's hip-hop and the show just isn't that interesting, (c) because his last album sucked, and (d) because he was all over the place this year. Coach isn't going to take him as a headliner after he was oversaturated all 2007.

I don't understand what your argument is. X & Y came out in 2005, just after Coachella. The Beasties hadn't toured in a couple years in 2003. And RHCP is just kinda California and Coachella legacy--they're a guaranteed sellout day with a two decade career, tens of millions of albums sold. That's not a comparison to Kanye at all.

Okay, fair enough, but if that's the case then they would have gotten Kanye last year, not the year AFTER his album dropped and he was completely oversaturated. kanye was all over the place last year, Coach isn't going to pick him up. in 2006 Golddigger was the biggest song everywhere when he played, hence the enthusiasm.

What about the fact that Kanye's mom passed and he hasn't made any contact with anyone since?

His blog (which he'd post on almost everyday) hasn't had a post in almost 2 months since his mom passed. Is he ready to perform again?

And yes, Kanye West is headline material. Even if his songs are way overplayed by April. He'd still have it in him to headline.
He'd probably do something sick like do it with a live Orchestra like he did Abbey road. Or him doing Stronger live with daft punk would be more than amazing. And a Kanye Headline would guarantee special guests.

He's an amazing performer. Has sold millions of records, and Makes HIT after HIT after HIT.
Kanye could definitely headline Friday night.

I'm with Randy on this one. I dont think he should headline.


a. coldplay 2005 b. beastie boys 2003 c. RHCP 2007 (even though i disagree)

yeah but ALL of those apply to Kanye. Only one of those applies to said artists above. Beastie Boys and RHCP have been around for awhile; they've earned a headlining status. Plus, do you think Paul would really ask him? Especially after that stubborn temper-tantrum he threw when he didnt get his award.

I dont think he should headline - but given our lack of knowledge on any headliners for this year, and also given who we have ruled out... I guess anything is possible right now.

thelastgreatman
12-26-2007, 07:07 PM
I just don't think he carries either the artistic weight to. Coachella headliners are either VERY established acts with 10 million plus album sales under their belts, or in the case of Coldplay they were just the critical darlings of 2003, about to release what turned out to be the biggest album of 2005, and very Coachella-esque in their music (a pop-flavored Radiohead knockoff). Kanye's "breakout success" is nothing compared to the way Coldplay exploded. I don't like Coldplay that much, and I don't know what their 2005 set was like, but I've seen some concert footage of Speed of Sound that was DEFINITELY Coachella headliner material. Kanye ain't that.

betao
12-26-2007, 07:12 PM
Yeah, that sounds about right. I cant really think of any hip-hop act right now that has the potential to headline to the festival. There are plenty of 2nd tier options, but I really don't think any have the power to headline. Public Enemy maybe, but pretty much every show review of theirs that I've read in the past year has been negative.

thelastgreatman
12-26-2007, 07:14 PM
The Beasties were able to (theoretically still could but I don't think Coach will ever do that again) because they've been one of the longest running and most commercially successful acts ever in hip hop. And they're white boy rap, so it's more accepted. And they sometimes play instruments when they decide to not suck.

betao
12-26-2007, 07:19 PM
Beasties could, but I think that would depend on 2 options - One of them being, Do GV and Paul want to top last year? If the BB headlined a night, they'd better have 2 other strong headliners or something else to make us say wow. I'd like to think Coachella's goal is to be fresh and original each year, I worry that if BB headlined, too many people would start to think less of Coachella. The 2nd option is that if they headlined, like I said earlier, there would probably have to be some other sick, totally unexpected headliner. Or something big from GV. I have faith in them always.

thelastgreatman
12-26-2007, 07:41 PM
Having the Beasties was special in 2003 when they hadn't toured in four years. It wouldn't be special now when they played tons of festivals and toured last year. I don't think they'll do it.

Exactly why Pumpkins won't be there (not to mention that they were HORRIBLE at Virgin Fest and every other fest. Worst fucking reunion set list ever). RHCP got a pass because they're a staple--Cali and the world at large love them. Pearl Jam is a distant possibility for this year, I'd almost say if Coach had two other strong "gets" as headliners they'd take Lolla's leftovers with Pearl Jam, except that PJ's album is two years old now, so it seems dubious.

If you're looking for "reasons" in terms of insider information or anything, no, there is none. I have no access to any kind of insider info. I just decided to look at the list of bands with albums coming out next year and the ones that jumped out at me I listed.

Some of those seem fairly possible. But I'm not sure about Hot Chip. It's possible, but unlikely. Festival promoters try not to book the same acts twice in a row. Like to keep things somewhat original. I know this is not always the case, as there are many artists that have played consecutive years, but I just dont think Hot Chip will be back next year.

They booked Bloc Party twice in a row. Hot Chip was one of the most praised but unexpected acts of 07, they didn't play LA again after Coach until this February and it looks like the heat of their Coach performance is still going strong based on how fast that El Rey show sold out. I know Boourns (I think?) already called this, but I'm in agreement. With another album on the way in 08, Hot Chip's gonna have enough heat and not have been seen enough to garner a repeat invite. Of Montreal is also a big possibility.

Also I'd love to see Heartless Bastards, though I'm not sure there's going to be reason for them to be booked.

I guess its possible. I'd like for it to happen, i'd enjoy seeing them. But I think it will also depend on who else GV can get. If GV gets to choose between an act that has yet to play coachella, or an act that played the previous year, I think they'd pick the first one. But who knows whats going on in GV, and how they select acts. I'm sure Hot Chip would be a good draw indeed, given that they were indeed a breakout act of 07, but I dunno. Just something tells me they won't be there. Kinda like your feelings with LZ, only mine arent as strong or determined.

Well, neither of us is certain for sure. But I don't think Bloc Party's 05 performance was as well received as Hot Chip's 07.

There are plenty of 2nd tier options, but I really don't think any have the power to headline. Public Enemy maybe, but pretty much every show review of theirs that I've read in the past year has been negative.

I saw Public Enemy at Rock the Bells in San Bernardino.
I thought it was an amazing set. Definitely not Headline material but if they had a spot on the line-up I would definitely look forward to it. They bring a certain energy that is pretty amazing. . . . and Flava Flav can still rock a show!

Also, in reference to the Coldplay-Kanye comparison: A Rush Of Blood To The Head sold 10 million copies. X & Y did 8 after Coachella. Graduation has sold 2 million so far, Late Registration 3. That is why there's a difference.

those are world wide figures aren't they? yeah just looked it up it sold 4 million copies in the US and late registration has sold 3.5 million in the US and hasn't been out as long as Rush of Blood to the Head has.

"That’s right, you heard me correctly. The only way that Coachella can regain any ounce of authority and renown in the music festival circuit—especially after losing Radiohead—would be to book the most impossible reunion imaginable. So, Goldenvoice and Co., listen up closely. The following shall be your saving grace."

Okay, what about worldwide?

Since this is a US festival the only numbers I really pay attention to are the US sales because I really don't think it matters whether or not Kanye sells records in South America and Coldplay does. Could Kanye headline Glastonbury? No, but could the Killers or Arctic Monkeys headline Coachella? nope. I don't want to dismiss worldwide sales completely because I do know Coachella brings in quite a bit from all over the globe, but I would think the majority of the audience is American. Also you can book shitty British bands that aren't big here, but are huge in the UK to bring the Brits over like last year with Kaiser Chiefs and Arctic Monkeys etc etc etc and expect to see more of that with Paul hanging around the 02 arena.

thelastgreatman
12-27-2007, 01:04 PM
Well I think it really does matter. Coachella headliners aren't just US successes--they're worldwide successes. It may take place in California but the festival tries to appeal to some international flavors. And we're lucky for that, because Coachella is one of the only US fests that has strong ties to the overseas music scene which is why we get some really amazing acts other fests didn't like New Order, Primal Scream, Jarvis, Daft Punk, Kraftwerk, etc.

Coachella isn't just a US festival. It tries to draw people from all over the world. And if you're good enough to headline Coachella, you had better be a worldwide success.

Botrocker

I have to give it up to the lastgreatman on this one. Coachella's not about getting some overnight sensation. They're about getting an eclectic mix of musicians whom we(US citizens)would not see if they did not perform at Coachella. While festivals like Bonnaroo and Lollapalozza may have great line ups, neither of them have had New Order and Gang of Four perform in the same afternoon.

summerkid
12-27-2007, 01:20 PM
but its not like Kanye doesn't sell in the UK I know his first two albums didn't do well over there, but I think with graduation he's been tapping into that market. He played two nights at the Hammersmith Apollo its not like he's a nobody over there.

edit: nvm the second night sold out so quickly they moved the show to the 02 arena you can't tell me he's not big enough if he's playing the 02 arena a goldenvoice venue too hmmm...

no comments on the fact that his mom died and he pretty much has disappeared since around November 10th of this year. Does everyone think that this wouldn't be a factor?

He hasn't made so much as a tabloid appearance and anytime someone asks for an interview his attorney says "the west family would appreciate privacy in the matter." Why would he talk to promoters?

Just a thought.

Look, in order to headline Coachella you have to carry some serious weight--Kanye suffers from a lack of longevity, the fact that he's a hip-hop artist, and the fact that although at times definitely very talented he's fallen off recently and made an ass out of himself. The only hip-hop headliners ever were The Beasties, and that's because they're complete fucking legends in the rap world who had almost two decades under their belt before they hit the Coachella stage--and they could bust out some actual musical instruments and fucking rock on Sabotage. Before the Beasties became a joke, they were pioneers in that genre and a lot of credit for rap's popularity can be traced to them for making rap-rock-hybrid music that could bridge the cultural divide.

Kanye didn't do any of that shit, and he can't rap for shit. His beats used to be hot, they're not anymore, and he's already becoming a joke. HE WON'T BE THERE.

Flava Flav is a Hype man. He's not really a rapper. Just a hype man. and he does his job well. He gets the crowd really hyped up. Its the yin to Chuck D's yang. Its what makes them good live. Chuck D is kind of mellow and he delivers his verses really well, but Flava Flav gets the crowd excited.

I don't think he's trying to steal the show. I just think he wants every single last person in the crowd to get excited about the music. When I saw him he jumped off stage and ran all the way to the top Lawn section and got the crowd up there really excited before returning to the stage to rock the rest of the show.

Check out their performance at Vegoose in the ATTblueroom.

I'm not saying they're Headline material.
