Woo Hoo! Go Goldenvoice!

no matter what you say about Rage, They're better than TOOL. Especially for our audience.

Bjork, Nothing to say about that, glad to have her back, because i didn't go to her coachella.

Red Hot Chilli Peppers are 10x better than depeche mode. Sorry but they are. I'll know more of the songs. And they put on an Amazing show


admit it you hipsters, coachella is back in coachella form.

p.s. fuck the arctic monkeys

Yeah, last year had 3 of my top 5 favorite bands (Sigur Ros, Mogwai, and Tool). This year's shaping up to be fantastic so far, but "best ever" is going to be hard to pull off.

last year's line up was pretty insane...not big on ratm and rhcp...bjork and interpol yes...and it would be great if police played...maybe some good up and coming bands...most of the bands have already played coachella...but no matter what i'm still going..

The Official "This Year Kicks Last Years Ass" thread

Whoa whoa whoa... slow down there, chief. How can that determination be made already. Since when has the qulaity of a festival been determined solely by the headliners. It's usually the breakout performances (Arcade Fire), the unexpectedly radical (Air), and second-liners (Daft Punk) that make it awesome. The one exception, of course, being in 2004.

last year was fun, but there weren't many stand outs for me in the big names. I left Depeche Mode very quickly (never have been a big fan), and Tool was underwhelming. I don't care a whole lot about RHCP (although I agree regarding them over depeche mode, for the fun factor alone).

However Bjork is the best news I've had in a while. RATM should be a blast too.

york707
01-21-2007, 04:42 PM
Did you see Daft Punk? Mogwai? Sigur Ros?

wmgaretjax
01-21-2007, 04:45 PM
i did see daft punk and sigur ros. unfortunately I missed mogwai (although I've seen them many times before). I have to admit I'm not a big Daft Punk fan, a little to bubble gum for my taste, but I certainly had a great time dancing.

Sigur ros was good as always, but the performance faded quickly after seeing them a few days later in an opera house back up in seattle.

Yeah I'm being too hard. Coachella is still the best music festival in the world as far as I'm concerned. There will undoubtedly be a lot of acts worth checking out this year, I'm sure of it. I just won't be there, I've decided to go to Chicago in March instead, just for the hell of it (will be checking out Ken Andrews and IAMX while I'm there, though). And I'm hurting for cash this year, so I guess I'll just save up for 2008. Which will probably be the return of Radiohead and possibly the Cure. Since 4 years is apparently enough time to recycle headliners. And they have been two of Coachella's biggest.

Boourns
01-21-2007, 04:59 PM
I was underwhelmed and rather disappointed at first, but after spending some time thinking it through, it's quite interesting.

Dying to see or somewhat curious about:
JARVIS COCKER
Arcade Fire
Air
Rage Against the Machine
Bjork
Willie Nelson
The Decemberists
Sonic Youth
Crowded House
The Good the Bad the Queen
Travis
Blonde Redhead (presumably)
Explosions in the Sky (presumably)
Girl Talk
!!!
LCD Soundsystem

Maybe I'm being too harsh:
RHCP (I do like a lot of their older songs but I'm also very much not liking Stadium Arcadium and think it's way too soon for them, or anyone, to headline again)

My only concerns right now are worthwhile Sahara tent headliners and the best of the up and coming indie rock act like Islands, Asobi Seksu, Sufjan Stevens, The Knife, Emily Haines, Final Fantasy, etc.

It can happen and it wont even be an arena tour either, just big theatres to at least please the core following. I think they will do a couple warm up shows beforehand. No way they go on that stage just having rehearsals on their belt.

I'm not at all interested in this years headliners, Rage Against the Machine, B-Dork, Red Cold Chili Peppers.... I guess Coachella has made me a spoiled beoochh over the years... I'll wait to see the EDM and Hip Hop acts announced before I start feeling out this year... 3 days could be very very fun, and more time to rock out.. Anyway.. this is like Christmas.. I want the damn line up to be out and out now.. hurry up..

no. you sir are an idiot.

I could tell how coachella was going to be when i saw last years lineup. Although it was a little better than I expected (daft punk!) it was almost exactly as I thought from the get go.

The headliners determine how the entire festival will be.

Thus, this year, so far, is better than last year.

I'm hyped for it, unlike last year when i was just going to go.

I'm just gonna go out on a limb and say that Radiohead, The Cure, NIN, Tool, and Depeche Mode are the best headliners Coachella has ever had. And probably ever will if they're so keen on recycling shit now. That is true that the headliners don't make the festival though. You can (usually) see the headliners just about anywhere, so it really shouldn't matter who's on top. It's all the wonderful unexpected and exclusive surprises underneath that's the most appealing.

york707
01-22-2007, 10:53 AM
OK - now withthe full lineup, I am willing to say this is better than last year's. But the headliners aren't what make it so.

Also - the title of this thread indicates thhat there's ususally a thread like this. Actually, there's usually a thread sayinf "last year was SO much better", "This year SUCKS", etc.etc.etc...

I would say this lineup is receiving the most positive feedback upon release since '04.

I don't know where to begin. I just woke up to see the full list. So, So psyched.

The Fields!!! Jarvis Cocker!!! In terms of number of acts I want to see, this is the best year (including 2004). I've seen RATM a couple times and the energy level is unmatched. I've seen RHCP 2 times (3x if you count that shitball known as their Lolla '06 set) and will not be seeing them again. But fukkin A, what a lineup. Super-duper. Neato gang.

I've been more psyched about headliners for past festivals - but the backup and supporting acts this year really trump the past few years for me.

I'm so excited - and I think that with the addition of an extra day, this year WILL kick last year's ass.

no matter what you say about Rage, They're better than TOOL. Especially for our audience.

I'm not sure who you think of as "our" audience. I know RATM has a long history with Coachella, going back to the first one, but I really would like to think that "our" audience had gotten a bit more sophisticated than a washed-up 90s holdover pseudo-underground act notable primarily for adolescent, safe, and shallow political posturing and RAWKIN' guitar.



Red Hot Chilli Peppers are 10x better than depeche mode. Sorry but they are.

If you think the RHCP are better than Depeche Mode, I really can't say I take your opinion seriously as far as music goes. Even if you like Bjork.



I'll know more of the songs.

Well, that's clearly the standard by which we judge things. Whether or not NoGwenPlease knows the songs.

Seriously, fuck RHCP, but I'm honestly happier when there are crappy headliners. It means I don't have to fight the crowds to see the people I want to see.


Whoa whoa whoa... slow down there, chief. How can that determination be made already. Since when has the qulaity of a festival been determined solely by the headliners. It's usually the breakout performances (Arcade Fire), the unexpectedly radical (Air), and second-liners (Daft Punk) that make it awesome.

Agreed. Totally.


The one exception, of course, being in 2004.

Eh. Never been a big enough Radiohead fan to fight the crowd for them. I went over and checked out Eyedea and Abilities instead.


The headliners determine how the entire festival will be.

Are we even talking about the same festival?


I've been more psyched about headliners for past festivals - but the backup and supporting acts this year really trump the past few years for me.

Honestly, I'm kind of so-so on supporting acts so far this year. There are people I want to see, but some glaring absences remain (the Knife, Asobi Seksu). Day One and Day Three seem pretty solid, but there are only a handful of people I want to see on Day Two (Arcade Fire, MSTRKRFT, Ghostface, New Pornographers).

But, of course, Day Two is right smack in the middle of the weekend, and so it's not like I'm going to go to Days One and Three and just go home and have tea and crumpets all day Saturday. But is it worth shelling out the big bucks for the three-day tickets if I'm not super-psyched about Day Two?

I'm a bit underwhelmed, I guess. Maybe I'm just spoiled from previous years.

yea! i just bought the 3day pass cuz i had a strong feeling day 3 would sell out fast. i was then gonna buy day 1 (which is still for sale), but figured it was safer to go with the 3day pass. i sooo agree with you, day 2 is kinda lame from my point of view. bjork on day one is gold and both rage and manu chao make up day 3, so day 2 is kinda like, eh. i really hope they add someone big that i've been wanting to watch or have seen that rocks.

Every year has the standout acts, but I think, as a whole, this is the best lineup that Coachella has ever had. I'm dreading the schedule to see where the inevitable conflicts are gonna be (Friday looks sick already).

I agree with a previous poster who said that it's not just about the headliners, but I can't agree that RHCP are better than Depeche Mode. Maybe Dave and the boys were so-so at Coachella last year but if you think that Kiedis and co. are better live then you are on crack....
