"In the interest of reducing world Internet traffic, we can tell you that the lineup for the 2009 edition of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival will NOT be announced today. Thats according to Paul Tollett, the chief architect of the signature California rock festival, who feels the pain of fans who JUST. NEED. TO. KNOW.

Tollett says, I know everybody is going crazy, but were not stalling, were still working on the show. Everything we do is in service of the show, not in service of the announcement of the show. Believe me, were excited to tell everybody and we want to tell everybody, but the show is still being put together.

So lay off the refresh button, kid.

i feel like this sentence of paul's made me think about whats going on right now and whats gonna go DOWN (hard) in april in a much better light. obviously gv hasnt released the lineup because they're hoping that certain musicians will reconsider the great honor that is an offer to play at Coachella. so just keep trying hard paul, and the rest of gv, to get those certain musicians to see the light. this isn't about waiting for a list of names for us to judge and jibberjabber, its about who we are going to share three special nights with in april. there IS the factor of coachella getting its lineup figured so that fans can determine whether its worth their journey (i'm in this boat, being from michigan) or if they oughta check out other fests instead. but just think about it this way, gvs allowing of its lineup to be released so close to the roo's MUST mean they're trying to get someone really special to show up.. and if they fail, well atleast theyre trying hard.

Agreed....

I mean cmon man, ive got alot of respect for you, ALOT!!!!!!

But you have the opportunity to say something relative and you give us a cop out. Wow the line up is not coming out today (kinda figured). Were working on it (gee really)

So i guess it'll strike when we all least expect it?

Carnie100

look at it this way: would you rather have a really good headliner that may be wary at first, but comes along eventually (I'm talking to YOU, BOWIE!), or would you rather have a really bad headliner, that would literally anger the entire fanbase (I'm talking to YOU, THE KILLERS!)?

Now the question becomes...
Who announces first? Coachella or Bonnaroo?

GV/AEG owns Coachella, while Bonnaroo is owned by Superfly/Ashley Capps.
They are competitors, and I'm sure they fight over headliners each and every year.

Maybe one of the festivals is trying to race to the finish line first with a big announcement?

Or maybe, as someone else pointed out, one of the headliners is big enough to headline both events, and the headliner has asked to be announced on both festivals at the same time?

i would rather have it like last year, where they just announce it as it is, even if its weak, so i can at least see all the other bands besides headliners, and then they keep working on the big guys and add somebody later on like they did prince.

No, we wanted them to say something with meaning. All he said was it was not coming today and to wait.

Doesn't exactly give us a time frame. At this point, it could be a week from now before it's announced. If anything, that message was just vague and more frustrating.

well i hope all those people go to roo then. maybe that would prompt gv to not make this same mistake next year. the thing that coachella always had going for it was that it was the first major summer to be announced, which i think gave them a big edge, since it was always good enough to make people decide to go without seeing others. now that people can see the roo lineup at (almost) the same time, this could possibly take a big chunk out of coachella sales. now that i think about it, thats a good thing. the more people that go to others, the more room i have on the polo fields. i just wish i knew not to expect it till now in the first place, would save a lot of stress.

Christ people.

He said what we wanted to hear, and that was just something. We all just wanted to hear something to let us know that they hadn't forgotten about us. That they cared.

And they did.

Thank you Paul, good luck with the rest of your lineup. Your fans are waiting!

well, we're not totally bitching at paul, we're bitching because the lineup isn't out which is very frustrating but I'm sure it is to him too if not more.

I'll just be glad when it is here and we can all move on


and think about it like this:
at least he's not releasing some half-ass lineup just to shut us up (but that would only make us bitch more) and instead he's taking his time to make sure it is amazing and I'm sure it is

Well, they're hyping it up themselves right now, intentionally or not. If the lineup isn't amazing or standout (or if we get the Killers as headliners after all), they'll have a problem with ticket sales.

well i hope all those people go to roo then. maybe that would prompt gv to not make this same mistake next year. the thing that coachella always had going for it was that it was the first major summer to be announced, which i think gave them a big edge, since it was always good enough to make people decide to go without seeing others. now that people can see the roo lineup at (almost) the same time, this could possibly take a big chunk out of coachella sales. now that i think about it, thats a good thing. the more people that go to others, the more room i have on the polo fields. i just wish i knew not to expect it till now in the first place, would save a lot of stress.



i wouldnt call that "something". he basically told us what we already knew, that it wouldnt come out today and they werent done with the lineup yet. i could have told you that.

:2c

cent one: enjoy the room on the polo fields, because if that's how it goes, this'll be your last year on the polo fields.

cent two: anybody could have said what he said, but it's because HE said it that i am more at ease. i want the lineup, i'm going crazy, i need to smoke some weed, but he let us know that they are paying attention, and i needed to hear that.

Bowie also reaffirmed that he would not be playing at this year's Coachella festival, after it was rumoured that he was set to revive his Ziggy Stardust alter-ego for the US festival.

Believe me, we’re excited to tell everybody and we want to tell everybody, but the show is still being put together. Oh, and by the way. The line up will be anounced in exactly one week. To the day.

Do you ever go to the movies and see trailers for movies that look really generic, and follow a basic formula and suck?

That's what generally happens to things when people don't stfu and let the great auteurs of film work their magic and create beautiful films. Instead there's people who write these generic scripts "that work" but leave you wishing you didn't waste your time or money.

On a similar note, how about everyone shut the fuck up and let GV take as long as they fucking want (as long as it's before April 17) to create the greatest three day event of the year.

I'd rather wait 2 weeks before I hear anything, than have a lineup released tomorrow that has the killers as headliners or something.

And GV doesn't need to make a statement about anything or answer anyone's questions. Great art will always speak for itself in the end. Coachella always ends up being worth it afterwards, and I've yet to be disappointed.

So I know this is said many times but sit back, relax, and expect nothing but the best, because you know that that's always what GV has in mind.

I meet people from all over the place. Does Boonaroo have the same draw? I wouldnt know ..i havent been . But it seems a pretty homegrown albiet successful very American based festival. But i think it draws from 2 completly diffrent pools of people . Would Boonaroo be excited about Prince? humm..Not sure..

i've decided i'm just going to say fuck obsessing over the lineup and checking this site for leftover scraps of information.. with the roo lineup DEFINITELY coming out on feb 3, i now plan to wait till then to return to this sad little world and (hopefully, if its finished by then) compare the lineups back to back.

if the fake lineup that was making its rounds today was legit, coachella would definitely have my loyalty. fuck.. chemical bros, basement jaxx, shpongle, orbital, 1/2 the knife, bassnectar, the bloody beetroots.. the sahara alone wouldve necessitated my appearance (had the lineup creator fleshed the electronic crowd out enough to actually fill the sahara all weekend, something i didnt realize till later (being blinded as i was by wishful thinking)). obviously i'm a noob to this whole forum thing, so i know i shouldn't get jerked around by jerkoffs like the dude who posted the lineup today.. but the anticipation just kills me i cant help it.

im not mad at goldenvoice and temporally removing myself from these forums to spite coachella I F.u.c.k.i.n.g Love Coachella. take your time! get whoever youre trying so hard to get! good luck! but because of the timing caused by this situation, gv might lose this customer to another opportunity.
