How could they not be? The lineup is getting a pretty bad reaction so far, unless they have something REALLY GOOD to add later. They must something in the works to win some fans back... instead of APW. Then again, they are also the ones who decided to book these headliners.

FYI, I actually love this lineup and I'm sure as hell going, I'm just worried... that's all. I really don't want this to turn into Lollapalooza 2004. I have a feeling this is going to have bad sales and affect the festival altogether. I guess when tickets go on sale we can track the GA numbers and see how fast they are going.

I don't know if they're panicking but they must be aware of the negative reaction they're getting to the initial lineup.

The real test will come once the tickets go onsale. If they aren't selling well then we'll probably see some nice adds. If they sell well like last year then we won't see anything big added (like last year).

They're clearly not panicking. Headlining Jack Johnson was a deliberate marketing decision: count on brand loyalty from long time attendees, while expanding the fan base to people with bad taste in music. Throw in Roger Waters, bring in some classic rock fans.

As someone (probably still) going for my 4th year, the thing that upsets me about this move is that it seems to sacrifice the general feel of the festival for an expanded fan base. I think the reason you're seeing people get so upset is not that the presence of Jack Johnson or Jack Johnson fans will detract from that one hour of the festival where they'll be off seeing someone else. Similarly with Roger Waters (I think a lot of the people hesitant about him headlining still kind of want to see him). The concern is that there's a shift in branding that will destroy the feel that makes Coachella unique compared to the "little bit of everything" feel of something like Lollapalooza (which I also go to regularly, just saying, it's a different festival by design). It could backfire on them long term, but as long as demand for indie-ish music festivals is on the rise and GV pretty has a monopoly on festivals of its kind in SoCal, this is a smart economic decision that the long time fans have every right to be a bit concerned about.

That said, Coachella is still doing an excellent job with two of the things that make them stand out among festivals:

1) Electronic acts
2) Reunions/Vets (in fact, this year seems to be particularly heavy on vets: Verve, Breeders, Madness, Portisehead, Kraftwerk, Malkmus (sort of), Roger Waters, Love and Rockets, Spiritualized...it's just that most of us can't say we know ALL of these acts well, so some of the excitement isn't there at this moment...hopefully, after a few listens, it will come)

So, hey, let's hope the upside is that its an opportunity for Jack Johnson fans figure out what they're missing too.

I think they're in talks (or already have signed) someone big for Friday night. Maybe he's got someone like MBV up his sleeve, because it takes serious balls to do the following:

A) Open another festival on the other coast w/the headliner most of us wanted
2) Avoid a presale
X) Up ticket and camping prices when 2 non-headliners (and easy here, cuz I love Portishead, but I think most of us agree they're more sub-headliner material) are "headlining" the first 2 days of the festival

I think something's gotta give, and it's gotta be a massive add and maybe even 1-3 legitimate bands like Band of Horses. I mean, if you proposed Jack Johnson was headlining in the recent weeks, you would've been flamed hardcore. Now I resent being flamed for saying Muse can headline. I refuse to believe that certain bands can't headline after this year.

Not liking headliners and not liking the lineup are two different things. People hear the headliners and are turned off, without giving the full lineup any real consideration.

People will go, no worries.

microcuts
01-21-2008, 11:54 PM
Give it a few days and most people will probably come around. Certainly sitting down and actually researching some of the bands on the lineup would accomplish that. This is a solid lineup that focuses more on the undercard.

Given that roughly every other person on their 2008 line up suggestion blog posted bands that had either a) already played in 2007 and b) listed non-Coachella-esque bands or their own crappy bands, it says a lot about many of the myspace "friends'" ability to read, not to mention some dubious musical taste. Afterall, thanks to myspace, we're suppose to care who Tila Tequilla is and what crappy stuff that everyone's friend Tom wants us to buy.

Seriously, if you don't like the line up, no one is pointing a gun at you and forcing you to go.

People are disappointed with the lineup every year because they have ridiculously, unreasonably high expectations. They tell themselves that the Smiths or Talking Heads or Pink Floyd are gonna reunite to play Coachella, and thats just not something you should expect.

Also, I know Jack Johnson isn't the greatest headliner, but do you people realize that there will probably be 3 or 4 other acts playing at the same time, and those people will probably be very good? Headliners aren't everything.

One more thing, I am surprised by people wanting Portishead, but not as a headliner. Serious? Do you realize that headliner = longer set? Just sayin'.

it's a decent bet, this smells something like a marketing/publicity move...weak headliners (although I love portishead and have definite interest in Roger Waters) and 3 day passes at 270$ when single day tickets are 90$ anyway almost make it seem like gv is trying to irritate people. I feel like the line up is pretty solid otherwise but the headliners are what get media attention. A big add after this set up would make for good publicity.

miseducation
01-22-2008, 12:17 AM
I've noticed that only the real board "die-hards" can really be said to have truly come around and learned to love the line-up thus far. Shit, they're even trying to spin this like a presidential election, saying that people have always complained about the lineup when it comes out.

Not like this.

I mean, while Jack Johnson Day may be stacked with my favorite 3rd and 4th line performers of any Coachella thus far - I don't think anyone can say this is what the wanted or expected.

All of our speculating and guessing and wishing for Boards of Canada, David Bowie, Prince, Led Zeppelin, My Bloody Valentine, Chemical Brothers, Underworld, Basement Jaxx, R.E.M, Prodigy, Asobi Seksu (maybe that's just one guy's wish but he did ask nicely) seem to have gone unanswered.

I'm not saying they didn't try, I'm sure GV had good intentions - but it just didn't pan out in the end.

You can convince yourself it isn't underwhelming, but it is. You can convince yourself it isn't a step down, but it is.

Even bo-dunk Langerado in the middle of the fucking nowhere out headliners this Coachella thus far.

There's always been a contingent that turns their backs on Coachella every year (Coldplay sucks! Tool sucks! Rage sucks!) but if anyone thinks those times are even COMPARABLE to what's happening now you're deluding yourselves.

All the music sites I've looked at that have mentioned Coachella (pitchfork, brooklynvegan, stereogum, idolator, etc) have either directly said that the lineup was underwhelming or have had a TON of people commenting saying that they were planning on going "regardless" but now that they've seen the lineup, have canceled their hotel.

Seriously, it's not just a couple people. The lineup isn't great, and that's not even comparing it to the "dream" lineup people had in their heads (MBV, RH, BOC). It's like every band on there is a replacement for something better. Raconteurs instead of White Stripes. Roger Waters instead of Pink Floyd. ANYONE instead of Aphex Twin. Jack Johnson instead of ANYONE.

I'll give them a month and if no one great is added (it would take, like, THREE high draw, second row bands to draw me in at this point) I'm cancelling my hotel and using the money to go to Bonna or Lolla (or APW, if it's sucked all the talent of GV which is likely).

And to all the people getting pissed at the dissenters for focusing on Jack Johnson, you need to realize that with the money they spent on Jack Johnson they could've gotten someone better. Even if it was sub-headliner material, ANYTHING but Jack Johnson.

I'll admit to not knowing all of the lesser-known acts. It's part of what makes Coachella fun is discovering some of them. BUT THAT'S NOT WHAT SELLS TICKETS. THE HEADLINERS DO. And I agree with most in here, these headliners don't deliver. You can't be serious if you think that Jack Johnson and Roger Waters get people as excited as The Chili Peppers and Rage. Or Daft and Tool. Be realisitic here.

The one thing to be optimistic about. After the first official announcement of who was playing Coachella '06, Madonna, Kanye West and Massive Attack were all added after. We can only hope they add some comparable muscle to this year's lineup as well.

Yeah, but he just got done touring arenas with that show.

I don't know, I really kind of wonder if people who think this is an effort to deter scalpers are right. There are 10-20,000 who will go buy 3-days no matter what. Then, they'll sell a bunch of 1-days to Floyd fans, Portishead fans, and people who think Jimmy Buffet is too edgy.

I think we could be looking at double-headliner situations- six medium-big names rather than 3 huge ones. Once they see which days are selling better/worse, they can figure out who's playing when.

I really think that if Jack was the second name on the list instead of the first, there wouldn't be near as much complaining. For me, those second and third lines look pretty good every day. And I never know much about the lower lines until I do some research, so I can't judge.

Exactly. It's psychological. If The Verve was on top, people would just be saying "Wow, these headliners are a little weak."

Who cares who's on the top line? Are you gonna get your $90 worth each day? For me, if an extra $500 dropped in my lap by this weekend, we'd be going. I'm still weighing the pros and cons.

insbordnat
01-22-2008, 05:18 AM
I'm really curious how many people would actually go see a headliner if one was added. For example, let's say the Bjork came back. And she was playing the same time as Justice. I for one would still be at Justice.

I can't say I feel like I got more of my money's worth - I would have seen the same people regardless.

yeah the backlash from the blogs (brooklyn vegan, pitchfork, etc) has been very negative. That's a problem for GV. This is their opportunity to make a splash and they didn't do it.

I also think that GV has to be careful not to lose it's edge as a "groundbreaking" "premier" festival. We all know that the festival experience isn't the same but Lolla and the Roo have had, in my opinion, superior talent the last couple of years. The market's getting tougher...I'd hate to see the Coachella brand damaged. I usually don't care at all about headliners but JJ is just plain embarrassing. It's going to be hard to sell more of my friends on spending the $1000 plus it takes for us to make the trek out from the east coast.

I could be reading too much into this, but Tollett was certainly careful not to specifically say the word headliners when referencing bands that would play. At one point he also stated that the bands he was listing weren't set in stone to a certain day. It would seem unreasonable, as others have stated, to increase ticket prices and not have a pres-sale unless you were planning on making a substantial addition. It is a bit of a stretch to imply the east coast concert was more of a concern to GV than putting on a comparable show to years past.

I'll give them a month and if no one great is added (it would take, like, THREE high draw, second row bands to draw me in at this point) I'm cancelling my hotel and using the money to go to Bonna or Lolla (or APW, if it's sucked all the talent of GV which is likely).

and if bonnaroo or lolla have line-ups that are disappointing to you? what are you going to do then???
