It's a bit early considering the eventual additions, I know, but just out of curiousity who do you think will close each stage? Here's my predictions. I listed the Outdoor Theatre but just left it empty since I think they'll do the same as they did last year, as in don't have anybody play as the same time as the headliner.

FRIDAY

Coachella Stage: Paul McCartney
Outdoor Theatre: Empty
Sahara: The Bug
Mojave: Crystal Castles
Gobi: A Place To Bury Strangers

SATURDAY

Coachella Stage: The Killers
Outdoor Theatre: Empty
Sahara: Thievery Corporation
Mojave: Mastodon
Gobi: Superchunk

SUNDAY

Coachella Stage: The Cure
Outdoor Theatre: Empty
Sahara: Groove Armada (DJ Set)
Mojave: Clipse
Gobi: Fucked Up

Sunday was tough since I had to fight my urge to put Throbbing Gristle as a closer somewhere.

although not "closers" i wanna talk about "headliners" for each stage...



Outdoor Theatre- headliner goes on last PRIOR to the Main Stage headliner

Sahara Tent- headliner goes on BEFORE or AFTER Main Stage headliner, NOT DURING

Mojave Tent- headliner plays Sunset slot

Gobi Tent- no headliner, really, although based on last year, i'd say all the Gobi "headliners" went on around 4 or 5...


PREDICTIONS:
main stage- Paul McCartney
outdoor- Leonard Cohen
sahara- Crystal Method (although i think Felix->NASA will be closers)
mojave- Ghostland Observatory or Girl Talk (yes, neither will play sahara)

main stage- The Killers (to be followed by non-headliners Daft Punk)
outdoor- Band of Horses or Fleet Foxes (although any adds to main may push TV/Radio here)
sahara- Thievery Corp (may be the first sahara headliner since the first day of '05 to play during headliner)
mojave- Atmosphere

main stage- The Cure
outdoor- X or Paul Weller
sahara- Throbbing Gristle (although i predict Christopher Lawrence to close)
mojave- maybe Peter Bjorn & John, maybe Jenny Lewis
(sunday is the hardest to call at this point)

Cohen must play the main stage. It will suck if he conflicts with Morrissey and then being stuck all the way in the back for McCartney.

My guesses...
FRIDAY
Coachella Stage: Paul McCartney
Outdoor Theatre: Empty
Sahara: The Bug or Girl Talk
Mojave: A Place To Bury Strangers
Gobi: empty

SATURDAY
Coachella Stage: tba
Outdoor Theatre: Empty
Sahara: tba
Mojave: Mastodon
Gobi: empty

SUNDAY
Coachella Stage: The Cure
Outdoor Theatre: Empty
Sahara: tba
Mojave: Fucked Up
Gobi: empty

saturday
sahara-thievery corporation or mstrkrft(hopefully thievery corp)
sunday

Fucked Up vs. The Cure? Are you all serious? I would flip shit. Those are basically the two bands I am looking forward to most on Sunday.

My guess is Fucked Up plays the Mojave at around 4:00 in the Gobi or the Mojave. Either way, right after No Age.

Is there a reason that Coachella did less headlining acts in 08 then in 07? Looking at the two schedules, 07 set times went until midnight for just about every tent. While looking at 08, set times taper off for the headliner on the coachella stage for the most part.

I think it was cause they didn't want the Outdoor/Gobi to bleed with the Main headliner.

Here are my guesses, sorry if I'm cheating a bit with the or's:

Friday:

Main - McCartney
Outdoor - Conor Oberst
Gobi - APTBS or Crystal Castles
Moave - Beirut or People Under the Stairs

Saturday:

Main - Killers
Outdoor - Spearhead or Band of Horses
Gobi - Superchunk or Okkervil River
Mojave - Mastodon or Billy Talent

Sunday:
Main - Cure
Outdoor - Lupe Fiasco or X
Gobi - Themselves or Gaslight Anthem
Mojave - Fucked Up or Clipse or Muder City Devils

I really hope Girl Talk doesn't play in Sahara. I think it would really kill the charm he has when you see him in a smaller venue/tent. Girl Talk was so much fun in '07 and I am not sure it would be the same in the Sahara.

I do not think Thievery Corporation will be in the Sahara don't forget that add's are comming for the Sahara which i am sure will be closing out the sahara saturday. If no add for saturday MSTRKRFT will close it out looking at the current line up.

Dont you think Mainstage would be Cohen>Morissey>Paul McCartney?
There wouldnt be a late enough timeslot for franz ferdinand.

I'm guessing either FF plays before or after Cohen if he plays the main stage which I'm guessing probably would.

Sahara: Girl Talk, or maybeThe Crystal Method

Saturday:
Main: The Killers
Outdoor: Thievery Corporation, or TV on the Radio
Gobi: Mastodon or Junior Boys

Sahara: MSTRKRFT

Sunday:
Main: The Cure

Ok, I will take a stab at this. I agree with others that some stages may be silent during headliners, so I am listing last acts to play on each stage.

Friday:
Main: Paul McCartney
Outdoor: Black Keys
Sahara: *Ghostland Observatory or Girl Talk
Mojave: The Ting Tings
Gobi: Patton & Rahzel

* if G.O. get a spot similar to The Rapture (2007), then Girl Talk close a stage (Main or Outdoor) after McCartney finishes and masses head for the parking lots

Saturday:
Main: TBA or The Killers
Outdoor: TV on the Radio
Sahara: TBA or MSTRKRFT
Mojave: Turbonegro
Gobi: Mastodon

Sunday:
Main: The Cure
Outdoor: Public Enemy
Sahara: TBA or Groove Armada
Mojave: X
Gobi: The Horrors
