In light of the Jack Johnson disappointing addition to the bill...what happened to the following bands this year?

--Radiohead (they are playing the other one, so i guess)
--My Bloody Valentine (a lot of anticipation)
--Morrissey (he is still touring)
--Dave Gahan (new album)
--Interpol and the Arcade Fire...although they both played LY...they didn't headline
--Muse
--Hell...at this point...even the Killers are better headliners.

Regardless, I'm still going...there are actually plenty of excellent middle of the bill bands...like the National, Rilo K, Mark Ronson, Vhs or Beta, New Young Pony Club, Justice, Gogol Bordello, Sebastian, Kavinsky, Chromeo, Metric, Shout out louds.....,

I'm sorry but Jack Johnson just weakens the bill and tarnishes the Coachella brand...

Any thoughts??

You forgot Spiritualized.

Probably because Spiritualized sucks and aren't anywhere close to headliners.

They're the opposite of suck, but agreed that they couldn't headline.

That's what I meant.

Also, Spiritualized rock, fuck you Randy.

Suggestion,

take all the whiny ' I wish this hipster band would have been there ' shit to another festivals board that hasn't announced its lineup yet.

Here, you are wasting your time. We have our three headliners. There, maybe someone will listen to you and give you Interpol, Morrisey and Radiohead. If Coachella gave me those three headliners, you wouldn't see me in here crying over the lack of Waters and Portishead, you would here me happy as fuck that I could take a shower with no lines about 11pm or rockin' out at another stage or dancing.

Get over the Jack Johnson bullshit.

Spiritualized are one of the main reasons I'm going this year.

Spiritualized suck shit. Corinna, as someone who has no interest in Portishead or Pink Floyd, you officially hate music, thus your opinion is discounted.

Not cool. You suck. For someone who's constantly extolling the virtues of British music, you sure don't know shit.

I answer all kinds of people who suck. I feel it's important that you keep being reminded you suck in case it ever happens to somehow sink through your thick skull and perhaps cause you to make an effort not to suck. The Verve are fucking wankers, we're talking about the co-title holders for best band ever here, hobag.

ahaha you are just an idiot with a lot of traumas, johnny football hero kicked your ass everyday when you were in high school and here is the only place where you can feel you are important. and the verve is an excellent band, and the best band ever is the beatles. :)

I edited down your list...but I still think Jack Johnson is the worst headliner ever in Coachella history....ever....

I was expecting Oasis or Smashing Pumpkins. Not that I like them, but they sounded likely to be there.

The main question is.. What festival will get My Bloody Valentine?
