isnt jack johnson kind of a middle finger to us?

i mean you grow to hope for some awesome reunion or some out of the park band that is worthy of a good headlining position, but instead they get a poppy guy who will attract a "different" crowd to sell tickets.

The headliner thing is what people are going off on. I will not be surprised if he gets pushed to the second line. I don't think he'd mind. I hear he's a really chill guy.

The Chilis are a band. Jack Johnson appeals to people who like John Mayer and Dave Matthews Band.

Based on musical relevance, yes. But Jack Johnson has sold a shit ton of albums. The Verve do have a platinum album in the U.S. - which is actually better than most usual sub-headliners at Coachella. And Portishead is headlining with only one Gold album. That doesn't add up. At all.

Tiesto wasn't the headliner? Who came on after the Red Hot Chili Peppers to close the main stage last year then?

As far as middle finger, I'm pretty sure I win this contest when I say "Madonna."

The thing about Coachella isn't the headliner. There are tons and tons and tons of great stuff to explore before they come on. Some of the best stuff I've ever heard has been in the early afternoon somewhere when it's extremely hot still and the band is someone I've never heard of.

Jack Johnson? Who cares? I hope he's on at the same time as Fatboy Slim. One good thing nobody is mentioning is that there are going to be other stages with headlining acts and obviously there won't be much of a decision to make for you people when it comes to the other headliners on other stages.

Choosing between Jack Johnson and Fatboy Slim is like wanting to get your teeth kicked in or getting your nuts in a vice. Hopefully the Outdoor Theatre is hopping with someone good at that time.

not the mainstage.

Yes there are many other artists that I've never heard of that I'm sure are wonderful acts.

but be real.

the thing that attracted me to Coachella in the first place were the headliners.

If I were a first-timer I wouldn't be attracted to it.

I'm not a first timer and i'm not that excited.

I was more excited about the line-up being announced than the actual line-up itself.

Like I said, I've attended every Coachella. This Will lbe my 1st time not booking a room in Palm Springs for the weekend and buying tix.

On the bright side, I'm about $1000.00 ahead now. :)

what would have made it worth it would have been something more dramatic like say reuniting The Jam and having another headline worthy act that didn't have their heyday almost 40 years ago.

Ok, scratch that, reuniting The Kinks would have been awesome but i digress... I've always understood this gig being about art rock/punk/new wave/alternative/electronic music and it's heroes and brightest up and comings. I see little of that this year.

late additions. Think '06. What's his name pretty much said there will be late additions during the mexican radio station conference. Whether those will be as good as Daft Punk and Massive attack, i dunno, we'll have to wait and see. I think most of the lineup is pretty good

flogging molly is just a small name on the list. wasnt like coheed and cambria there in 2006?

whether or not people wanna admit it, the first name people see usually eludes to the type of festival. When you have bands like the raconteurs portishead, justice, and other names that are not exactly completely underground but kinda there, you dont see it as a festival for intelligent mind blowing music when Jack Johnson is the first name you see.

and roger waters was a waste. That guy comes to san jose every year.

whatever im still going.

portishead then kraftwerk back to back is like opening a present and finding a nintendo wii with every game you ever wanted for it.

Madonna played a tent because she's madonna and she said "I wanna play the dance tent" No other reason. I'm pretty sure I read that they tried to convince her to play Main stage cause they knew how big of a crowd she would draw. She refused so they ended up making the sahara tent WAY bigger than it was previous years.

At least the Jack Johnson fans will be nicer than some of the fans that have come in the past years. Last year I was beat to hell during Arcade Fire by irrate/drunk Chili Pepper fans. Thank god for some of the awesome bands they booked for the daytime. Plus I think Portishead will be a nice chill way to end an evening.

masks
01-22-2008, 03:38 PM
portishead will totally be a cool way to end the evening, but i feel like they should follow up a "big guns" kind of band, like tiesto following the chilli peppers. don't get me wrong though, i like portishead way more than most of the bands on this lineup.
--about moving jack down a spot--do they ever really do that? i don't know if the raconteurs or verve are the material to headline either, even though i like them. can they ever sign on another headliner? like the white stripes or something? that doesn't sound like the biggest stretch...

Swiss Misstery
01-22-2008, 03:40 PM
Well I must say that I am holding my breath for some additions. They added Daft Punk and they were by far one of the biggest acts that night. So really we have some time to see if things change up a bit.

01-22-2008, 03:41 PM
I've been to Coachella the past 6 years and this years lineup to me all depends on perspective. I mean that in the sense that it all depends on what you are looking for. If I hadn't seen Kraftwerk 4 years ago and then saw them on this years bill, I'd shit my pants to see them. However, since I saw them at Coachella and a few times since, it doesn't excite me that much. Coachella has always been about bringing in those "once in a lifetime" acts and this year doesn't have a single one. I think this years festival is aimed at bringing new people and it might be one for the veterans to sit out. And that's fine. But for some of us who've been Coachella regulars, seeing a lot of the same acts on the bill year after year can get a little frustrating and that's why I'm passing on this year but can't wait to see what they offer for 2009...No hard feelings GV.

bliss209
01-22-2008, 03:56 PM
cool...... so what if the line up doesn't appeal to newbies......YEAH!! now it wont be so crowded.
Man did you guys have a fit when JJ played years before??? SO WHAT!? I actually thought Coachella '05 sucked music wise, but that was my own opinion since i already had seen NIN and Coldplay numerous times before and was wanting to see something new.
And that is exactly what I did...... in case some of you didn't know, there are other stages, and there are other performers at this event. Heaven forbid you find an artist you have NEVER HEARD OF BEFORE and you actually like them. Imagine expanding your mind and broadening your horizons on your musical tastes........wow. It can happen people.
kinda the reason why i remember going to Coachella in the first place back in '02.

GROW UP PEOPLE!! You all should be lucky and happy with having such an awesome festival such as Coachella. I really don't see any of you trying to put together the same huge festival every year for hundreds of thousands of other peoples enjoyment? If you don't like , don't go. But honestly its your loss.

I go out of tradition and the music has NEVER let me down

You know what? This whole lineup fiasco suddenly reminds me of a Simpsons episode where this happened:

(copied text from some Simpsons script site)
Lisa: Hey, I _am_ above average! So what if Alison's ahead of me?
There's no shame in being second.
[imagines]

Announcer: And now, Avis Rent-A-Car is proud to present the second best
band in America. Will you welcome Garfunkel, Messina, Oates,
and Lisa singing their number two hit, "Born to Runner-up".
[Audience boos]

Lisa: Why would they come to our concert just to boo us?


This year's headliners and to a lesser extent the rest of the lineup are that second best "band" and people have come here to boo... Not saying it's right or wrong, it's just an analogy that came to me...

I have been to every Coachella since 2001, and have loved every one, but it's hard not to be dissapointed this year. I agree with the notion that the best thing about coachella, besides hanging out with friends in a beautiful field, are all the up and coming bands that you get to see, some of which you didnt know about before and now love. This year, the bulk of the lineup looks solid, with an especially awesome Sahara lineup (though where are underworld and goldfrapp =)

However, to say that the headliners do not matter is just not true. Acts like Radiohead, New Order, NIN, Depeche Mode, The Cure, The Pixies, Massive Attack, Daft Punk, etc mean something to a lot of people, and they are certainly a part of why i go to coachella. To belittle the headliners of the past really does a disservice to coachella and to all the amazing times that we have had during the headlining sets. Sure we might get the next up and coming Bowie or Orbital. But I want David Bowie and Orbital!

I'll go and ill have tons of fun. I always do, and its great partying in the desert with you all, but i have given goldenvoice and the town of indio thousands of dollars now, and I feel like we deserve more than this. i feel like we're getting short changed here, as goldenvoice uses the revenue they receive from coachella to fund more festivals for other places. First Stagecoach, and now Coachella East. I actually wouldnt have had a problem with it if the quality of the festival had been the same, but for the first time, it is starting to look like goldenvoice isnt putting their fair share into coachella.

I want to skip friday, more as a matter of principle than anything else. but i know i wont be able to resist and go anyways. goldenvoice is going to get my money again this year, but this just might be the first time i am not happy about it.

p.s. - i've been to every coachella including '99. short of the pixies / radiohead / air year, i've never been more pumped about a lineup. but that's just me.

Whenever they add people they always adjust the lines and the text size of the poster.

This isn't even the final poster, trust me it will change a bunch of times. It's almost unreadable in its current form.

There is so much good stuff on the line up and lots of new artists to discover.

Who knows if they will add anyone?? 2006 they added Madonna, Daft Punk, Massive Attack and Kanye West.

2007 they only added smaller acts.

Paul did say they had some tricks up their sleeve so we will wait and see.

Maybe they want to have rounds of additions to build excitement like Bonnaroo and others...

Jehova's Witness FAQs...

Why don't you celebrate holidays?

We commemorate the Memorial of Christ's death, the most important religious event of the year for Jehovah's Witnesses. Throughout the year, Jehovah's Witnesses enjoy parties, picnics, and other events without feeling bound to obligations or to a fixed date. We may also celebrate special events such as weddings and anniversaries. However, we do not celebrate holidays that have non-Christian religious origins or those that promote nationalism. We are not opposed to celebrations in general or to the giving of gifts.


So there you have it. Jehova's Witness can celebrate and be the cause of celebration.



Party on Prince!

Jack Johnson was probably the worst idea for a headliner, that whole year was kind of a downer. It was the only year that I didn't go all 3 days due to money problems and the only day I could go Jack was headlining. That year was just a disappointment.

There was too much good stuff going on Friday to worry about JJ.

2008 was the best year IMO. I doubt that anything will ever match the perfection of the lineup and set times of Saturday 2008.

Above & Beyond were playing in the Sahara during Prince. Not sure if that makes them the sahara headliner or not.

Madonna as a headliner was a big kick in the pants.
I was like, "really?"

Madonna wasnt a headliner moron. Ya she headlined the sahara tent, but as a festival headliner? uhh no.

I don't think Madonna was even the last performer in the tent, wasn't it some trance dj?

the chili peppers / tiesto thing last year felt like a finger. jack johnson is just diversity. he's not my cup of tea, but the floyd are and portishead certainly are. so, i'm waaaay happy, jack johnson or no. its not like we don't have 4 other stage options while he plays.

p.s. - i've been to every coachella including '99. short of the pixies / radiohead / air year, i've never been more pumped about a lineup. but that's just me.
i feel kind of dumb after reading this thread...i had never even heard of tiesto before looking at the lineup, actually had to wiki him. can someone please educate me?
