Very True.. the only problem is I've seen everyone except Kraftwerk and Fatboy Slim before. I desperately want to see Kraftwerk but I don't want to pay over $1,000 total to see them. (tickets, travel, etc.)

I love how about half of the bands from the "confirmed list" aren't even there, at least according to this lineup. And all the chaos leading up to the announcement when everyone thought Pearl Jam and Aphex Twin were likely. I'm still waiting for: Prince, Outkast, R.E.M., No Doubt, Coldpaly, etc.. all listed as "likely headliners" at some point on this board

The US market is now too saturated with festivals for any one of them to be any good at all.

Or maybe East-Coastchella will be so amazing, because GV put all of their eggs in that basket and stuck us faithful with Jack Johnson on Friday.

Oh, and between him and Slightly Stoopid, why don't we just pipe Sublime records over the mainstage. I doubt anyone will know the difference.

Carl Spackler
01-21-2008, 04:29 PM
Because there are millions of sorrority girls and wanna be surfer dudes that think Jack Johnson is "the bomb". I saw him give a free concert and 50,000 people showede up.

During the Press Conference Paul Tollett said that there were a lot more groups he didn't have time to announce, and that "they had a few tricks still up their sleeves"

So, don't give up yet on the bands you don't see on here (e.g. GoldFrapp)

MMJ, Tegan & Sara, Justice that high?

Hey, "a trick up the sleeve" for me would be : Daft Punk, Chem Bros, Radiohead, hell, even No Doubt is acceptable to me now. I mean, i'm so fucking dissapointed, that the trick has to blow my mind.

mistercrinkles
01-21-2008, 04:37 PM
I can't deny my disappointment, particularly in the headliners (minus ROGER WATERS). But I think the rest of the lineup makes up for MOST of that fact.

Plus the greatness in weak headliners is getting to see the TRUE headliners in Sahara and Mojave without conflict. Seriously.

MrSheen
01-21-2008, 04:39 PM
didn't they say that GV had something up there sleeves last year...even right up to the week before...but nothing happened.

like a lot of you, i'm semi-excited, but until i see the poster on the main page, it's kinda hard to accept this announcment.

Bababooey
01-21-2008, 04:40 PM
mistercrinkles: I saw Roger Waters at Live Earth, it wasn't all it was cracked up to be. I was also hoping for better headliners like in years past, been refreshing these forums all day waiting for the news.

Most of the good bands I already saw at Lollapalooza or ACL (and even Coachella '07) last year.

But yay to AiH, Stars, Holy Fuck, Battles also (of course, Stephen Malkmus)!

Would be there for Kraftwerk, Portishead, The Verve, Spiritualized ...

Whatever. I'm excited. Coachella ALWAYS announces extra acts in March/April (Kanye West, Madonna in 06), and usually cancels one or two as well (Cocteau Twins in 05, Wilco one year I think?). Jack Johnson is soothing, and while he might not be the top top top of your list, he is a great voice to end a night with, especially night one. I can't wait.

Blah. This really is disappointing.

The problem I think is all the goddamn rumors that were going around. MBV! Radiohead! Etc! Etc!

That's what makes this feel a lot worse than it really is.

The headliners do still suck though. Death Cab? Come on.

whynotsmile99
01-21-2008, 04:51 PM
hahaah I just went to Jack Johnson's website. Some new song of his started playing and when I turned up the volume the first thing I heard was...

"don't sit in front of your computer screens for too long/you might get down, down, down."


Good advice Jack! I like him a lot, but wow, can't believe he is headlining.

well it is not what i was hoping for.... but the verve!!! I am honesly shocked that MBV is not on there, and Portishead as a headliner - i figured them second tier with massive attack - that reunion/first show isn't even as big as the pixies or the JAMC. But overall it is pretty good, and i have full faith more hip hop, goldfrapp and maybe hard fi will be added. Hopefully My morning jacket gets sunset.

Jack Johnson headlining a Coachella is the most despicable thing I have ever seen.

I second that, I've gone the last 2 years and this is so very dissapointing I was so looking forward to going but me and my friends are gonna pass, I rather fly out to europe or wherever a great lineup is presented, where's radiohead? love is all? under byen? various? yeah yeah yeahs? pj harvey? m83? the long blondes? ladytron? i could go on and on man this is terrible I'm truly not one to hate on things but this is so sad, expectations are a bitch.

Ok, I'll admit, the headliners kinda blow this year. I WOULD like to see Portishead, just not as a headliner. Jack Johnson? What a fucking joke. But honestly, my favorite sets have never been from a headliner and there is a lot of other bands I want to see on the lineup. And yes, the Saha line up IS SICK!!!

Unfortunately, none of the people I'm going with like the lineup, so that will make things difficult if I go alone...

I've been waiting for the Portishead rumor to come true for like seven years now. This will be epic.

Kraftwerk blew me away in 04. I would like to see them do something even more incredible but I'll have to miss them if they conflict with M.I.A.

The dance line up is so incredibly sick. I really hope they add more acts to Sunday overall.

I really hope Kraftwerk doesn't play the Sahara after Portishead. It sucked having to inch towards the back near the end of Radiohead's set so I could get a head start to Kraftwerk, and even then I was barely lucky enough to get inside the tent.

Portishead may be the first headliner for whom I'll get to the main stage 2 acts before they play.

Ouch man this lineup is mega lame compared to last year! At least I can still reserve hope for Bonnaroo! GV might have some bad ass additions though, with a generally lack luster release lineup. Even after saying that, there are still some pretty kick ass acts on there!
