Well, I've hated on monklish, said that he was full of shit and running a rink-a-dink blog. But I will take all that back and admit error if he's right and calls (among others):

The Chemical Brothers
Animal Collective
TVOR
The Faint
Hercules and Love Affair
Morrissey (even though his tour dates make it pretty obvious/possible)
Neil Young
Evil Nine
Public Enemy

There are a few big names here that have been tossed around but no one here--that iv'e seen--can find info that leanms either way--i.e. Chems and Neil Young. So the ball is in your court Mr. Monklish, I look forward to finding out if you were full of shit or not. Quite frankly, that goes for everyone who claimed to be in "the know," you're all on notice in my eyes.

again you are assuming that headliners are included in this list which they are not...

either way and even if this were actually true...those are good names and not surprising

white lies for the win!!!

For real.

Lulz. It takes some serious planning and effort to fail a hard as Langerado. I hope it's not indicative of the festival season as a whole with the current credit crunch :-/

I HOPE that foals would be in COACHELLA! : (
I really hope so!

I really want the lineup Monday, but if they're still negotiating with a headliner or two, I can understand why it's taking so long. Sucks, but understandable.

boarderwoozel3
01-16-2009, 01:51 AM
Nonsense! Drop the lineup on Monday, let everyone freak out and then swoop down to save the day a few weeks/months later with some epic adds. See: 2008.

Hempey
01-16-2009, 04:46 AM
If the Chemical Brothers do play will they play the tent or the mainstage? I would guess tent but after seeing some of their performances on Glastonbury's pyramid stage I think that would be a sight to behold.

ADrunkPoet
01-16-2009, 04:55 AM
The lineup will be released soon.

And nothing is guaranteed until you see it on the Polo Fields.

Bands are added, and bands flake.


Now, can we skip forward a few months and just have a good time already? Shit.

When I see a band like Kings of Leon on the bill who we all know won't be headlining but pretty much will probably have a sub headliner spot it makes me think of the type of band that they would be opening for on the main and all I can think of that is big enough would be Pearl Jam. Any thoughts about this?



(prepares to get pummeled)

Mr. E
01-16-2009, 06:48 AM
PEARL FUCKING JAM!

garrett222
01-16-2009, 06:51 AM
i'd love pearl jam, but would it be THAT unlikely to see kings of leon - > The Killers. It'd work okay.

garrett222
01-16-2009, 06:52 AM
Plus if it were pearl jam playing, it'd be KOL -> Neil Young -> Pearl jam

shotglass75
01-16-2009, 06:55 AM
I agree with all of that about KOL, NY, and PJ. The Killers will not be headlining. The might do a Portishead type thing up front to make it seem like they are headlining but somone will be added. i'd take Duran Duran as a headliner over The Killers

ZackQ
01-16-2009, 06:58 AM
So 9 a.m.? What time zone? Pacific?

garrett222
01-16-2009, 06:58 AM
I would love it if the Killers were second to someone else.

Killers -> Pearl jam
Killers -> Bowie
Killers -> Jay Z
Killers -> Radiohead
Killers -> No Doubt

All those would be great lead ins I think. Even Killers -> Neil young would be good. I'd rather the killers and neil young pull friday together than have them each ruin a day alone. (i like them both, but neither as headliners really)

SFChrissy
01-16-2009, 06:59 AM

ok i'm just being a lame - o. but not to screw with the board. I'm actually trying to force the lineup to appear at 9am pacific time with nothing but positive thinking, will power, and the force.

Let me tell you something about Monklish.

First she says:


Simian Mobile Disco (personal source, 99%)



David Byrne (personal source, 75%)

Then she says:


Won't be there:
David Byrne/Talking Heads (bah/clearly)
Simian Mobile Disco

And everything else on that blog has been something we have said, with some extra bands added that have a chance of going, but may very well not be going, because why does Monklish have the line-up?

Shenanigans!

The Killers subheadlined before the Smashing Pumpkins at v-fest in Toronto about a year and a half ago.

Needless to say, both sucked.

So Monklish says we won't have the lineup for at least another 10 days, but most likely another 17 days. Seriously what the fuck?

Actually that probably means we'll have the lineup tomorrow.

I do love the Sahara, but the Chemical Brothers on the main stage would be siiiiiick. I could definitely see them doing something like in 07 where Tiesto closed out Saturday night on the main stage. That was unbelievable, but Chem Bros > Tiesto
