Tomorrow we all find out for sure. So, last minute weigh-in on things we don't already all know already about the lineup.

FRIDAY: Pearl Jam, I suppose.

SATURDAY: No Doubt will headline the poster but Portishead closes the main stage.

SUNDAY: Not David Gilmour. Also, robots.

TOMORROW: The entire board gets to brick in my mouth about Zeppelin.

NEXT WEEK: I issue an iron-clad prediction of Zeppelin to headline Jerzchella.

SATURDAY: Talking Heads will headline, Portishead plays before them, Spiritualized before Portishead.

SUNDAY: Led Zeppelin, also robots.

TOMORROW: Randy gets to brick in a handful of mouths about Zeppelin.

NEXT WEEK: I'm going to try ordering pizza three times.

No denials, just different confirmations.

Alright, I'm off to go write music. You guys all jerk each other off til I get back.

The Purple One ehh Randy? Are you going from that PM or do you have a real confirmation?

do you know something about the lineup we don't?

wait.

what do 'we' know again?
fuck. this year is confusing.
and the lineup not being broadcast in english is going to be a minor hindrance as well, I imagine.
here's hoping GV puts the poster up in the blank white 'info coming' box at the same time as the announcement.

That would make sense. I have nothing other than guesswork to go off of, but that would make sense, and I'd be very happy to see him there.

i'm guessing a majority of the names will be pretty obvious, even if they aren't spoken in english to begin with.

Would Prince and Roger Waters settle for those little 75 minute headlining sets?

frozen pilgrim
01-20-2008, 10:39 AM
I'm not sure about the name thing-
a lot of names are constructed of multiple words that can be easily translated from language to language, and some names are like... you know. people type names. names that you can't just translate. I wonder how it'll be spoken?
I'm not complaining, I think it's cool. it's just interesting to try and figure out.

and if we're still just making educated guesses, I'd say...
I have no idea. they've really done an excellent job this year.
but if either no doubt or coldplay are wasting mainstage time, I'll be sorely dissappointed.

Boourns
01-20-2008, 10:44 AM
Friday: R.E.M., No Doubt, A Tribe Called Quest, The Chemical Bros
Saturday: Prince, Portishead, PJ Harvey, Underworld
Sunday: Roger Waters, Kraftwerk, The Verve, Love & Rockets

And if Asobi Seksu isn't on that poster, I'm going to cry. And then spam the board and gv's email every day until they are added. Well, I dunno. I don't want to get IP-banned like DeltaSmegmaHigh

i'm not calling headliners but I will call Atmosphere and Rilo Kiley.

R.E.M. won't be there. I'm betting on Pearl Jam.

Me too, but I doubt it. I could be wrong, but Pearl Jam is making more sense to me.

Boourns
01-20-2008, 10:56 AM
Yay, last year's Lollapalooza headliner again. And I thought they were playing Bonnaroo.

Pearl Jam won't be there, either. It would have come out by now on one of their message boards. I am a hardcore poster on a couple of their main boards, and this type of thing would NEVER slip by until the actual announcement by GV -- there are way too many diehards and people close to the band and their management who post on there to allow it to slip by. I'm willing to bet my house on that.

If the Roger Waters rumor turns out to be true – and if some bigger confirmations aren't added to the list we've already got – I'm glad there hasn't been a presale this year. On the strength of what I've seen so far, I'll be saving some money.

It's making me nervous. Announce the lineup already. Okay, I can wait for few more hours.

srsly!

back to reality, who do we really think is going to headline?

nahuatldream
01-20-2008, 12:30 PM
maybe they'll change it up this year and give the headliners longer sets? It's not out of the realm of possibility. They have tent hotels. TENT HOTELS!

MiamiNate
01-20-2008, 12:48 PM
I would not be mad at a longer set time for [I]some[I] headliners. like AFKAP.He needs 2 hours. But 2 hours of a band like coldplay or rem or pearl jam? no thanks. zepp? sure. pink floyd? sure, play dark side and the wall. I don't think no doubt could do 2 hours without a bunch of covers.

could somebody send that to me

noavailibleids
01-20-2008, 03:31 PM
If someone would also PM me with the info that would be awesome.

I am still holding out unrealistic hope for Blur. But i think Prince and Weezer are likely.

They will demand Cure set length time. So 2 1/2 hours.


No Doubt is still on my list to even be there despite not ''headlinig'' supposedly, I still got the '''I called it'' for that.

01-20-2008, 03:36 PM
I'm changing my Friday prediction to Coldplay. No Doubt before Waters or Prince? Huh.

White Stripes are actually a possibility. I'm almost positive one of the three is an act that's been at Coach before.

Maybe I am WAY WAY WAY off on this, but I don't consider myself to be a TOTAL music dipshit and I have to imagine there is a large group of the Coachella-going public out there like me that would see a Coachella poster with "ROGER WATERS" as a headliner and go "WHAT THE LIVING FUCK? WHO?"

A Coachella-going public that would think that? I don't think so. Public in general, sure. After all, I work with people who consider themselves "into music" and yet have never heard a David Bowie song.

Oh, I get his relevance. I would just not be excited at all about seeing him. Maybe I'm in the vast minority.

... Do you not like concerts? Music in general? Do you not have a soul? Are you a douchebag?

What's the explanation for this?

I like concerts and music. I don't really believe in souls but if they're real I certainly don't have one. I AM a douchebag. And, I just really don't dig Pink Floyd nor do I give a shit about seeing Roger Waters perform a bunch of songs I don't recognize or enjoy.

I'm more interested in the explanation of your unwavering need for people to be stoked about Roger Waters.

I'm in between projects at work right now....translation=I have nothing to do. Which means on Tuesday (when I get back in to "work"), I'll be going through all these prediction posts and comparing the actual lineup to all the "definates" that have been stated.

Oh, and if Prince is a headliner, it'll be the greatest Coachella day (whatever day he plays) ever.
