As of Feb 14th

Friday- 41
Saturday- 50
Sunday- 34

That's not including Pollstar reporting Black Mountain moving to Friday (I'm skeptical) and Yeasayer on Saturday. And Spiritualized still thinks they are playing Saturday.

So the UNofficial count is Friday- 42/Saturday- 52/Sunday- 32. SOMETHING interesting is happening.

I counted all the Institubes as one act. If you count them separately, it's 53. I don't know anything about them.

Bands will hopefully be added. That's what you can assume from their Facebook message:

"....stay tuned for Ticket Giveaways, Breaking News, Line-Up Info, and much much more. Anything posted in this box is Official..."

and this was updated like 3 days ago.

I would count Insitibubes as different artists.... perhaps they'll all get a 2h block, like Busy P+ Mehdi...but it is 4 diff guys...

Spiritualized on Saturday? Please, no! That is already going to be a bitch of a day for conflicts (already 13 bands I want to see that day). Spiritualized would be just one more tough conflict.

I don't know. We pretty much know that Saturday was selling faster than Friday and Sunday. Saturday tickets are being priced at a premium on e-bay, as opposed to the other days which are selling approx at cost.

They apparently don't need any help selling Saturday. By moving small acts to Saturday, they can add some bigger names to the other days.

I'm not saying that they will match up. There's not 30 adds coming. Saturday will be the most heavily booked no matter what happens. Last year, Friday started later. And I still think Waters is going to get a super-long and/or no conflict set.

Lets say you've got 5 or 6 semi-big names lined up to boost sales. No need to put any on Saturday...better to make a little room the other two days.

Personally, I'm already screwed on Sunday. I want to see virtually everyone on the top three lines. Hopefully, the sparse lineup on the bottom lines will mean fewer conflicts.

I am pumped for Kraftwerk, Portishead and Roger Waters already...any more additons will just be icing on the cake..(of course they could get things like MBV , BoC and Aphex Twin and make my fucking year...)

I just counted my lists for each day. Sunday I've got 10 acts written down (with 8 of them being must-sees), Saturday there's 14 (although I know a couple will be missed when they conflict with Portishead and Kraftwerk), and Friday there's a whopping 19 (but less than half of those are must-sees). So I'll be set all weekend no matter what, but Sunday's numbers are looking a little sparse. I wouldn't object to a huge Sahara tent add.

Man, I remember so fondly seeing the Prodigy back in '03. I was rolling hard and when they played "Smack My Bitch Up," the crowd was going fucking mental. Maxim Reality even came out into the crowd and was, like, 15 feet away from me. (And I wasn't even that close to the stage, I was back by the sound board.) That moment right there was what made me a die hard Coachella attendee.

last year Willie Nelson performed at Coachella and Stagecoach. He's probably the only performer out of those two festivals that could of possibly played both. They just added the Eagles to Stagecoach this year to Headline there new friday lineup. Is it possible that they made Sunday's lineup at Coachella smaller to make room for the Eagles. The reason this makes so much since to me is because the Eagle would be the perfect opener for Roger Waters.

the only reason I would want to see the Eagles is to have them perform Hotel Cailfornia...and then leave...

fucking love that show..

to date, that is the largest crowd Prodigy has played infront of. That was a free show they did in Moscow, in the heart of Red Square, in 1997. An estimated 300,000 - 500,000 showed up.
