This combines the thoughts behind a few other threads, but if you were Paul, how would you fill these five most critical spots.

Mainstage 6:30 - Usually goes to a hot, high energy band to get late arriving crowd immediately sucked in.

Outdoor @ Sunset - The ultimate chillout set...usually goes to day's best or most popular mellow act, and almost never conflicts with Mainstage 6:30 or Mainstage Subheadliner

Mainstage Subheadliner - the 8:30ish slot - Usually goes to second most highly regarded non-Dance act of day, and usually gets an extra 10-20 minutes.

Mainstage Headliner - Needs no explanation, but think pattern of last two years will hold...One absolute legend from pre 1980s, One beloved 1980s/early 90s act...One Super popular present day up-and-comer.

Here's my Dream line up for these slots...sorry to the U2 haters out there, but makes too much McCartneyish sense financially.

Friday

6:30 Mainstage - Deerhunter
Outdoor at Sunset - Elbow (National was my fav sunset show of last two years, these guys have similar mellow but epic mojo)
Mainstage Subheadliner - LCD Soundsystem (too big for Dance tent now)
Headliner - U2
Sahara Closer - !!!

Saturday

6:30 Mainstage - Outkast
Outdoor @ Sunset - Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds
Mainstage Subheadliner - Amy Winehouse
Headliner - Arcade Fire or Lil' Wayne
Sahara Closer - Daft Punk

Sunday

6:30 Mainstage - Strokes
Outdoor @ Sunset - Sufjan Stevens
Mainstage Subheadliner - The Velvet Underground (Surviving members w/ Dean & Brita of Luna handling Sterling/Nico roles)
Headliner - David Bowie
Sahara Closer - The Knife

Curious what other people see/hope will play out.

6:30 Mainstage - Outkast
Outdoor @ Sunset - Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds
Mainstage Subheadliner - Amy Winehouse
Headliner - Arcade Fire or Lil' Wayne
Sahara Closer - Daft Punk



Outkast is way bigger than that spot, Daft Punk is way bigger than that spot. Amy Winehouse is too high. By Next year everyone will have moved on from Lil' Wayne, I think they already have. Nick Cave is spot on, though.

6:30 main - THE HIVES
outdoor sunset - BECK ("SEACHANGE" ACOUSTIC)
main sub - SUPERGRASS
main headliner - BOWIE

Friday

Saturday

Sunday

6:30 Mainstage - LCD Soundsystem

Mainstage Subheadliner - Pulp
Headliner - David Bowie
Sahara Closer - someone like Steve Aoki because if you miss Bowie, that's what you deserve (and Bowie closing at 11pm isn't an option because he should get as long a set time as The Cure and Pulp should have MBV's timeslot.)

Bowie/ KNIFE or Daft Punk conflict is absolutely criminal.

Boourns and Passive are definately pretty realistic.

However, if The Flaming Lips return next year, they will be headlining.

I really hope they do, but like, I could totally see them being superseded by another headliner (hence Depeche Mode).

I would be incredibly happy with either Boourns' or Passive's choices here. I'm too lazy tonight to make one of my own.

Saturday


Mainstage Subheadliner - Blur
Headliner - Arcade Fire




Surely you jest! This must have been an accident. I think you'll find that this is the wrong way round. Blur would never subheadline the Arcade Fire. Blur are far too big for that.

You live in the UK? Then maybe this would make sense. If not, I can only sigh.

No, Passive is correct in that setting...last time Blur played Coachella it was like 5pm in the afternoon.
