I woke up several times during the night last night to check for updates and/or presale info, and it's only going to get worse over the next couple days. I'll be lucky if I get to sleep at all. It's so much more frustrating this year because of the lack of info, it seemed like each other year there was at least a pretty good guess as to who was playing, but this year is basically a complete mystery to everyone. I can't stand it!

They did that last year. I think they sent someone to Coachella to see Rage as one of their destinations. Can't really recall...

So we know that more than likely Linkin Park and Radiohead will not be at Coachella because they don't repeat bands in the destination contests in the same year.

You know, I'm not to big a fan of having to listen to Radio stations give us the announcement though (after the 91x thing). I'm not saying Kroq is anything like 91x but I just miss the anticipation at 2 am before the poster goes live.

Ardentbiscuit
01-18-2008, 02:57 PM
I say we all figure out where this annoucement is going to be in Mexico and do a road trip and crash the party! :)

Even though there is no line up yet they can at least post the new website and color scheme.

So with how sparce the leaks have been this year, do the rest of you feel like they have just guarded some immense secret very well, or maybe blew it as far as acts they tried to book?

Ardentbiscuit
01-18-2008, 03:02 PM
If they really did book more latin bands and half or a quarter of the line up is comprised of those then that would probably be why we didn't catch it yet becuase most of those sites are either in a different language or we don't think to check them.

Wheres the beef?
01-18-2008, 03:03 PM
So with how sparce the leaks have been this year, do the rest of you feel like they have just guarded some immense secret very well, or maybe blew it as far as acts they tried to book?

Well if you consider asking The Killers to headline and getting turned down as "blowing it". But I would probably ask more qualified individuals what definition of "blowing it" you want to use.

RedThom
01-18-2008, 03:05 PM
Goldenvoice is always ahead of us it seems

Remember the whole shenanigans with Smashing Pumpkins and Gorillaz in 2006? People were pissed when they found out this was NOT the case. What did we get instead? Depeche Mode and Tool and people were also somewhat agitated and excited and then, bam Daft Punk. Not to say Daft was all of 2006, I seem to remember getting my head kicked in by Mylo, TV on the Radio, Mogwai, Ladytron, AND the yeah yeah yeahs just to name a few

Cancersticks1
01-18-2008, 03:09 PM
I'm not really worried, just super anxious. And at a loss for prediction, even the best speculation has come up with possible sub-headliners at best. I don't doubt that they'll give us something good, it just always seemed more obvious than this before, (obviously not everything, but you know what I mean.)

RedThom
01-18-2008, 03:11 PM

That in particular was what I was thinking of, I didn't see that coming at all. Likewise Bauhaus and Crowded House, caught me completely off guard. But thats sort of the point of the reunion acts, that aspect makes sense coming as a shock, everything else is usually pretty easy to foresee.

the obvious will happen:

1. it will be announced
2. we will all analyze the headliners: 1/3 will love, 1/3 will hate, and 1/3 will not care cuz its all about the full lineup!
3. we will beign the process of conflicts which will drive us all nuts !
4. then it will settle in that we are 3 months away from another 3 days in paradise baby!

Straight up. I decided not to go into any of the "confirmed bands for 2008" threads on this board. and i dont want to listen to KROQ for that shit. MAYBE just to find out who the headliners are, but thats it.
I want it to hit me full force like a cinder block to the head, and just drool over the poster...

I will be moving into my new apartment. I am not sure if I should delay it JUST so I can have internet.

at least class will be all the better with the coachella knowledge in hand.

A year or so ago I remember the line up was being announced but I had class and didn't know any of the line up stuff. My friend david kept texting me about "oh fuck man you got to see this". I snap after not being able to pay any attention at all during this 3 hour lecture and at break ditch class. Go to the computer center and drag up the home page... No announcement... David was just fucking with me. Needless to say, I was late to class and the teacher mocked my impatient ass.

The same source unequivocally denied rumors that Radiohead would appear at Coachella, but did confirm that the group would play the East Coast festival being planned by Coachella promoters Goldenvoice/AEG Live.

My grandmother died on Thursday and her funeral's Monday. There were times when I was at my family's house tonight when I wanted to leave so I could check the board and see if any other news has been leaked. (Portishead essentially being confirmed? And as a headliner, no less? I like!) I'm supposed to be a pall bearer and I'll honor that commitment, but I don't think I'll be able to hang around for too long at my grandfather's house afterwards if I know that Paul Tollett is announcing the line-up from Mexico that afternoon.

LUNARIO AT AUDITORIO NACIONAL PRESENT:
THE COACHELLA VALLEY MUSIC & ARTS FESTIVAL
2008 ARTIST LINE-UP ANNOUNCEMENT

A discounted pre-sale would have been a nice way to thank the loyals. I guess we are no longer important.

Saving $50 or so would have really helped with so much other stuff going on (Radiohead, Nuchella, various personal expenses and vacations, etc).

This is pretty much how I feel. It's not that big a deal, but when you're about to be going to Coachella for the eighth year in a row, you start to assume that your loyalty will have some sort of perks.

he grew up playing the live circuit in seattle in the 80's & 90's.. you would think he would be a little more, uhh, not retarded.

Does anyone else think it's odd that they are doing a Press Conference to announce the lineup. I mean there are a few ways to look at why they are doing it this way.

A) Prevent leaks to the media before they want the line up out there
B) Build massive hype (done and done)
C) Have a MAJOR announcement that goes with announcing the lineup, i.e Zeppelin, Floyd, The Smiths, someone else we aren't thinking of.

I dunno, it just seems like an odd thing to do unless there is something else going on.

:rotfl I'm so stealing that Jack Johnson comment, and passing it off as my own work among my peers. How funny!

Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Cold War Kids, Kings of Leon, Queens of the Stone Age, Justice, Wolfmother and possibly Dirty Pretty Things. It's all I ask. Fairly reasonable request, I think.

Zeppelin, Muse, the Cure and Daft Punk would of course be nice, but let's not be greedy.

However, if the Magic Numbers, Keane, Travis, Duke Special or the Kooks are announced, I'm gonna cry tiny little tears of disappointment and then go set something on fire. Either that, or I just won't go to to see them.

Well, it's really hard to recommend the movie, because it really seems to be hit or miss with people. I personally loved it, and thought it was amazing what they did with the visuals - blending the special FX with the cam corder, made it seem more real.

I really liked it, but *shrugs* i also read a lot of people hating it on the net.

Hopefully at least your gf enjoys it. :)

There Will Be Blood is def a must see. I highly recommend that one.

Jack Johnson couldn't headline The Jack Johnson Foundation's Tribute to Jack Johnson.

harsh... but really funny..

why does everyone here hate jack johnson anyway?

nothing against him, but i don't think he's headliner material..

My God people are so freaking opinionated on these boards...why do you care if there are even a dozen bands or artists you dont like. You can make your experience in Coachella whatever you want it and not even know those bands were there! Have any of you people even been - if so then you KNOW this...it is hard to even see all those you want to so dont worry about those you dont want to see....get off your pedistal :rolleyes
Appreciate that Coachella is for more than one audience!

amen

I'm thinking that Manu Chao's going to be announced... His shows are amazing. Radio Bemba Sound System is one of the best live albums that I've ever heard.

i agree with the live album part. amazing cd. But i dont think he'll do 2 years in a row.

I think its partially beacuse people want the shirt/sweatshirt/poster they buy to look the "coolest" it possibly can. Maybe if JACK JOHNSON in big bold letters is on the shirt, some people will think that Coachella is for frat guys and sorority chicks in fluffy pink ugg boots.

im not joking this is what i think other people seriously think.

can someone tell me why Jack Johnson is listed as playing both days in 2003? His name is all mashed up with Mos Def on Saturday. Did he really play both days

Ummm

I hate Jack Johnson
But he isn't depressing at all
He plays music for boring people to "chill out" to
Yeah banana pancakes really sounds like the saddest song ever written just from the title -_-...

Maybe the fact that you grouped Jack Johnson with Radiohead makes that the worst post ever

Radiohead aren't even that depressing!

The anticipation is killing me. Any chance Bonerama, New Orleans' unique brass/funk/rock band, will be squeezing their way into the lineup? They'll blow the tent down they're so good. With a name like that, you can't go wrong! Their renditions of Zeppelin's "Ocean", Hendrix's "Crosstown Traffic", Black Sabbath's "War Pigs", and The Allman Brother's "Whipping Post" are of of this world. Their originals are so catchy you'll be asking for more. They were HBO's house band for last year's Comic Relief and have been cross pollinating with OK Go for the past few months or so. They'll be playing with them on Feb. 2nd in Baltimore at the 9:30 Club. It would be awesome to see Bonerama out there and even Porter Batiste Stoltz. I think the music is going to help rebuild the forgotten city of New Orleans and these bands have so much talent it's unbelievable. Who's with me?!

Can't wait for Coachella. See you there!

For someone with 8K+ posts, you should know the ettiquite of message boards.

You just called the leader of Bonerama a convicted sex offender, which is interesting news (if true). I Googled and didn't find anything.

The least you can do is provide proof with a link. Especially if you are going to slander him.

this makes me think of the tribute ozomatli payed to new orleans during their set last year. it's nice to see people trying to revive things in new orleans by spreading the word. having some new orleans traditions play at coachella would definitely be cool.

Okay so Urb claimed that Portishead are headlining, and now NME are claiming that the Verve are headlining, too. I think both sources are BS. Playing yes, but headlining? No way.
