I've been to Coachella every year since 2001 and yeah, good lineups, but over time electronic acts have gotten the shaft. Its nice that we have a return of some strong acts along with some decent rock acts. If you don't like the lineup, don't go. I'll have more room to see who I want. It wasn't fun seeing big headliners anyways when 7 bazillion dickwads shoving your back to rush the stage.

Let's hear it for...

Raconteurs
Fatboy Slim
Tegan and Sara
Madness (fucking Madness yo!)
Pendulum
Aesop Rock
Spank Rock
Diplo
Adam Freeland
Busy P
Portishead
Kraftwerk
M.I.A.
Hot Chip
Erol Alkan
James Zabiela
Sebastian
Kavinsky
Uffie
Roger Waters
My Morning Jacket
Spiritualized
Justice
Danny Tenaglia
Simian Mobile Disco
Murs
Dimitri From Paris
Sia

i ain't spending 270 + gas + camping to see all of those. I could easily spend 30 a pop on each and take BART to see them in the city instead of die in the heat.

It's not awesome. It's not awful. I would have a good time, but I'm not sure if I've got $1000 to spend on a time that's just "good".

I might go Sunday just for the heck of it though. My wife loves Floyd, L+R and Spiritualized would be sweet, and we both love Gogol. But honestly, each day has a lot to offer, it's just lacking...something.

I think people just see Jack Johnson as a slap in the face. Personally, I rarely give a crap about any headliners. Most of what I'm into is in the middle, and then I like checking out new stuff.

From Pitchfork:

"Let the 2008 festival season begin, North America! Here we have the much-anticipated lineup for the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, taking place April 25-27 at Empire Polo Field in hot, sticky Indio, California. Organizers made the big announcement at a press conference today in Mexico City, according to the LA Times.

The biggest surprise? No My Bloody Valentine, who were heavily rumored to be playing this year's fest. The second biggest surprise? How underwhelming it is in comparison to years past.

Among the big ticket items: Roger Waters of Pink Floyd performing Dark Side of the Moon in its entirety, Portishead playing their first American show in forever, the reunited Verve, uh, Jack Johnson. But hey, Kraftwerk! "


jajaja even THEY know it sucks

DUDE! Bro! Pedro Winter is the manager for Justice and Daft. Have you heard his shit? Do you even know? Apparently you haven't heard his stuff before.

Thanks.

Edit - and yes, I know Pedro and Busy are one in the same.

My money is that they will.

OMG...dude...you are fucking annoying!!! Yah, we get it...you don't like Jack Johnson...give it a fucking break and just don't go this year...and, while you are at it, please don't reproduce...I think that would be a benefit for all of humanity.
