In the past years there have been some breakout groups that all went on to have pretty good response and success. The buzz about these bands continued to grow until the festival and then they kinda blew up after their amazing sets at Coachella.

2008 - MGMT
2007 - Silversun Pickups/Hot Chip
2006 - Wolfmother
2005 - Bloc Party

So my question is, who is going to be the breakout group that not too many people know about right now, but come the festival EVERYONE will be wanting to see?

I've heard alot of buzz of airborne lately. Same thing happened with MGMT last year. but who knows, i've heard the same about beirut.

Wolfmother is great live too. First time I ever crowd surfed when i saw them at weenie roast.

Interesting question! I went to my first Coachella solely because Clap Your Hands Say Yeah was going to be there (well, almost. not like it took a lot of convincing.) So there's "breakout" and there's "sustained trajectory" or something. And the whole "popular = bad" thing that drives me nuts. Huge amount of buzz around Glasvegas but ...my taste leads more towards someone like Cloud Cult, but can't see them as a "breakout" band. I'm totally failing at answering this question, but I love the question. Next!

its tight that the bloody beetroots are playing at such a well known event and are being considered "breakout", ive known and been listening to their music and remixes since before coachella 08. its gonna be cool seeing them for the second time. lets go bobby rifo!

Of the bigger names, the obvious answer is the Fleet Foxes...people who have yet to see them live have no idea how well their harmonies hold up live.

But of all the acts, my money is on A Place To Bury Strangers. Everyone I know who's seen them live says they absolutely destroy, though I have a dark feeling they will be counter programmed against McCartney in the Gobi or Mojave ala Black Lips/Jack Johnson and end up being missed by most.

Another experimental New York Band, Gang Gang Dance, could really raise their stock. I'm guessing they'll be a Sahara act, and see them playing really well there.

The one I'd truly love to see blow up is Okkervil River, because from an multiple album quality standpoint, I don't think there's been ten better bands on the planet over the last five years, but friends I know that caught them at Lolla last year said they were pretty disappointing.

Way down on the bill...look out for San Diego's The Night Marchers. Got a nice, urgent low fi punk sound and a couple great tracks.

Hercules...I don't know...I'm guessing Antony will join them since he's on the next day himself, but I just think that once you get past Blind and their theme song it's a massively overrated album and don't see the material being that mind blowing live.

As far as others...Glasvegas is another hype band that lacks great material, but might have enough stage presence to wow. Late of the Pier and/or Los Campensinos could also surprise.

And don't count out old timer Booker T...I'm definitely looking forward to some early afternoon Green Onions.

And on a contrarian note...MGMT's success had nothing to do with their Coachella show...I was there and it was one of the lamest performances of the festival, right there with Vampire Weekends. MGMT's success is entirely due to having had 3 killer singles on it's debut release.

If there was a performer who blew their rep up last year, in my mind at least, it was Sharon Jones. She positively killed.

APTBP definitely bring the chaos live. Theyre also very, *very* loud live. I don't know if Coachella will let them get as loud as they normally do, but i'd strongly advise earplugs.

Gang Gang Dance is getting tons of press... but I still can't tell if the singer legitimately can't sing worth a damn, or is pretending like she can't to better fit in with the whole hipster-ethno scene thing

Very nice, I'm actually in the process of uploading some pics. I'll post a couple in the Upcoming Shows thread. I snagged the setlist as well.

They're one of those groups who sound infinitely better live than on record. Crooked Fingers were a nice lil' band as well, 1st time hearing them.

I for one, LOVED MGMT's performance and thought it was great. I loved the way they continued to build their sets momentum. I know people didn't like the fact that "Kids" was played with a backing trackk but I thought it was a great way to interact with the crowd and go back to their roots of how they started off and used to do shows. I have listened to Airborne Toxic Event and don't think it's anything amazing. Their "hit single" is really good but nothing out stands out. White Lies is decent but nothing to wet myself over.

Shroomers & acid heads will discover they love TINARIWEN...probably one of the least-heard bands on the lineup (and a suggestion I made early on when GV was asking who people would like to see in '09).

Tripped out African music by a band of fucking nomads...seriously. I can't wait to see 'em play live. Hopefully they're a sundown set the way Dj Shadow was in 99.

08: vampire weekend (i wasnt there though. i would say the national, but they were pretty big by then)

and as i said,
09: white lies

you people have no fuckin' idea what youre talking about
silversun pickups' set was horrible
no breakout at all.

breakout band was someone that hardly anyone knew and put on an amazing show or at least good enough to garner instant recognition

and for wolfmother?

As far as I remember, Wolfmother had people spilling out way in the back of the tent and on the side and every single person in the tent was going ape shit. Plus after Coachella they got a huge following, Played Lolla and Roo and went on a world tour of decent sized venues. to say nobody cares is dumb. To say, YOU don't care is fine but that band got pretty huge there for a year or so.

The Editors didn't get as big of a reaction from the public and from the media after playing Coachella as Wolfmother did.

Arcade Fire I didn't put as the breakout performers because they were already huge and already had a massive following. But I could see how some would think they were. They certainly stood out for me. Vampier Weekend blew last year. And Gogol Bordello... c'mon man, it's a schtick. They are riding a wave that is sure to break any day now. yeah their shows I guess in some way can be fun, but can you really say you love rocking out to Gogol Bordello in your car or on your way to work or school?

2005 was clearly Arcade Fire. Yes, they were already somewhat big on the internets, but that set at Coachella was the first big performance they did (probably, I should add, the best set I've ever seen at a music festival) and it catapulted them into another league which bands like Wolfmother or Bloc Party have never even gotten close to. What's Wolfmother doing these days? Who cares.

2006 I'm not really sure that there is one. A lot of smaller bands played good sets and get a little bigger as a result, but no one really blew up after Coachella because of great sets. Being on the bill probably did wonders for Animal Collective (who have been gradually ramping up their album sales ever since), but I don't think it was the set that did, since it wasn't all that great.

2007 & 2008 - I'm getting lazy...

2009 I disagree with White Lies. "Death" is a great song, but the rest of their catalogue is weak, and that will be a barrier to them taking off. They're gonna get played to death in Britain, but not here.

in order for a band to "blow-up" after Coachella, they can't really be on the first 3 lines of each day (I agree that Beirut, Band of Horses and Fleet Foxes aren't going to get any bigger than they already are...selling out mid-size venues...)

as for the rest of the line-up:

White Lies - Friday
Glasvegas/Ida Maria - Saturday (doing a tour together leading up to coach.)
Friendly Fires/Gaslight Anthem - Sunday.

They'll move up from the tiny clubs they've been playing to larger clubs and mid-size venues in the following year. Would've said Lykke Li, but she's bound to be a one album wonder along with every other hot scandinavian chick, a la Annie and Robyn (love the album, but that betch needs new material...). Maybe they could form some kind of Stars on 54 diva supergroup....damn that would be badass (j/k)

I bet the Bloody Beetroots will become the new Justice.

I like them dont get me wrong but there live experience is just like any other pair of djs except their in masks, but theyre still really good!

alright...can't argue with that. Agreed, I don't think they will get much bigger than they are.
