Seriously? What is with all the negativity this year?

I was stoked about last years line up... it was Rage Against The Machine after all. But seriously, look past the headliners this year!!!

Friday:
Madness
The Verve
The Raconteurs
The Breeders
Fat Boy Slim
Teegan and Sarah
Animal Collective
Slightly Stoopid
Pendulum
Sharron Jones & The Dap Kings
Battles
Midnight Juggernauts
Busy P
Modeselektor

Saturday:
Kraftwerk
Cafe Tacuba
Sasha & Digweed
Cold War Kids
Stephen Malkmus
DeVotchKa
Flogging Molly
Scars on Broadway
Islands
Boys Noize
VHS or Beta
Erol Alkan

Sunday:
Gogol Bordello
Justice
Spiritualized
Chromeo
Metric
Simian Mobile Disco
Les Savy Fav
Holy Fuck
Man Man
I'm From Barcelona

And these are only the bands I've heard of and/or listen to!!!

I cannot wait to discover more acts as well. Seriously. I know more artists on this line up then I did on the 2007 line up.

I will admit I am disapointed in 2 things though.
a) Ticket Prices. $270? Ouch.
b) Jack Johnson really is a terrible choice for a headliner. But I will be in the tent with Fatboy Slim. As well, even though I love Portishead, they aren't the best headliner. They would be have been a SOLID sub-headliner. But hey. It's all good.

Now. Look back at the line up. You will realize this is incredible.

I'm stoked for this lineup but I'm also a little disappointed. I seriously feel like making this my sig, tho. Well said.

Holy shit, how could I have missed Madness and I'm From Barcelona?? Thanks for this. I think the color scheme of the new poster made my eyes wander in the wrong places.

I KNOW!

Madness and Im From Barcelona are two of the most exciting acts on the entire line up. Both are incredibly rare acts to see in North America.

I didn't see Madness at first either. Then my eyes landed on it and I said out loud, "Holy Shit. Madness? Like, MADNESS Madness?" And my girlfriend looked over at me like I was crazy. So I played "One Step Beyond," and it melted her face off.

The only thing that dissapoints me this year are the ticket prices. Seriously, wtf mate.

Same situation here. I need something better to spend that grand on.

The Sahara's tight this year but it needs something enormous. Add Underworld or the Chemical Brothers and we might be in business.

Every year I say I won't go and every year I see the lineup and run screaming to California. This year, I can't even try to feel that way.

thats what im saying. to me, its better than the lineup in 06 ( i know it had Daft punk but overall it sucked)
I recomend checking out

Saturday- Portishead, Kraftwerk,M.I.A, Hotchip
Sunday- Roger Waters, Holy Fuck, Autolux, MANMAN, Im from Barcelona, Justice, Spiritualized

I fret w. minimal bands I want to see- if they conflict im screwed!

HAHAHA! YES MAN!

One Step Beyond is the song that made me a die hard Madness fan. My girlfriend LOVES them to. I told her and she flipped out.

I am loving the vibe going on here!

Seriously. All the people on here hoping for No Doubt should be thrilled about Madness.

Friday

MADNESS
Slightly Stoopid (only cuz of pnutzz on teh vegoose board, lol )
Aesop Rock

Rogue Wave

Saturday
Portishead

Calvin Harris
Boyz Noise
Junkie XL

I admit to being disappointed at first, but then I went through and counted up the bands I wanted to see each day, without doing any additional research. The totals?

Friday: 15
Saturday: 13
Sunday: 14

Not too shabby. I was apparently blinded by the Jack Johnson Factor.

You are in the same boat as me then. I just realized, without researching, I know more bands this year, then I knew at Coachella 2007 AFTER researching.
People seriously need to look past the headliners.

i agree with most of this.

2 minor disagreement:

jack johnson is more than a terrible headliner. it is a major, embarrassing fuck up. it almost seems like coachella couldn't find a headliner. it seems like an act of desperation.

portishead is a fantastic headliner. i can't think of a better headliner for this year other than radiohead.

You'd make a great cheerleader, Rage..

I've got about 45 acts that I'd like to see, that's not too fuckin' bad!

$270 /45 = $6 a band... Still works for me...
