seems like the past few years the site has changed when the poster was released. I could be wrong tho.

Man, we've all been through this so many times, you'd think there'd be some Official Coachella Message Board Users Guide thread that notes all the previous lineup announcement dates, dates when the sites changed, dates when the message board changed colors and so on so we didn't have to have these same discussions every year lol

Friday: ? -> ?
Saturday: FNM-> Muse
Sunday: Massive Attack-> Gorillaz

Thats my guess as to right now. I am unsure about Friday though. Maybe Soundgarden as the first "?" and either U2 or Pearl Jam as the second "?" Something like that.

Dr. Lufs-al-ot
01-10-2010, 07:27 PM
I really hope Proxy, Crookers, Bassnectar, and the Eels are moved to Saturday

Saturday's lineup (especially sahara) looks weak as hell. Well no, not weak per say, but just not as "balls out" as the Saturday Sahara line up usually is. Sunday is usually the slower day, and Saturday is usually the day of craziness. I would have expected at least Bassnectar and Crookers to be Saturday.

but hey, we'll see when the official line up comes out

Ummm. They have sold like, 13 million albums in the US. They are bigger than Bjork and Portishead, probably bigger than Jack Johnson too. In fact, they are probably bigger than Muse even. That combined with a new album coming out soon and how incredibly rare a Gorillaz performance is... headliner without question.

"our" means me and my brother. just going off everything that we've seen here and elsewhere. no insider info or anything. i just like making posters and seeing how close (or far off) we were when the lineup comes. looking at fakes from previous years, nobody's ever gotten the headliners completely right and the undercard is usually completely different. this year, seems to be lots of "confirmations", which are all on our poster, so it'll be interesting to see how that pans out.

just a reminder.. I'm totally planning on doing the set time prediction thing again this year.
we made a template today and it looks lovely! .. it has the same color scheme as the new board colors.

but of course, I'll wait until the lineup has been up for a while and has time to change, have acts switch days, drop names, add names, etc.. I don't want to start predicting set times RIGHT after the lineup comes out.

The thing I like about that poster is it's good and seemingly realistic, at least not wildly implausible. Sure NMH and the Avalanches would be big surprises but not inconceivable given enough motivation (money). And the background is pretty :)

And it was laid out well at the top. The largest attractions on the main stage and Sahara on opposite days etc.
Orbital - Muse
Gorillaz - Guetta with the Avalanches & Vitalic playing earlier. Potentially?

It's true, Goldenvoice can truly surprise the collective, but we're talking about the Avalanches here, who are realistically just a fraction more likely than Boards of Canada, and that's saying something. I will pleasantly be shocked if either the Avalanches or Neutral Milk Hotel are on the lineup, and even the moreso with Leftfield or Röyksopp.

My apologies everybody I didn’t know this “outrageous” question was being raised so frequently on this thread, I try very hard to NOT come into this thread to begin with.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v729/clumsy342/FakeCoachella2010-1.jpg

You know, every fake poster made so far for this year has three names on the second subheadliner line but the past two years have shown us they've changed the format to just two subheadliners.

Yeah I pointed that out a page or two back. I think that's one thing that kinda leads people to think the lineup is a "letdown" when its released - all the fake posters that get everyone excited are loaded with 2nd line subheadliners, but in reality that usually isn't the case.

I think the initial lineup "letdown" is due to the 2008-2009 trend of having a lame-ass half-headliner on one day...it seems like ever since the debut of the third day in 2007 GV have chosen to use one day for a throwaway, certain-demographic-money-grabber-but-musically-irrelevant act. JJ, then Killers, and now Muse. What's the point of changing the format of your festival to 3 days if you're only going to "dumb down" a headliner in order to fill the bill? This whole "1 sort-of headliner, 1 repeat or really cool headliner, 1 'major' headliner" deal isn't a plan, it's a funk. Coach needs to ditch that shit. Drunken rant over.

boarderwoozel3

Muse blows the Killers and Jack Johnson out of the water both musically and performance-wise. Thus, it's a bit sloppy grouping them in with those two. True story.

Additionally, it's a balancing act between the increased profits from the extra day and the cost of producing an extra day of the festival. The numbers might not work out so that they can afford a Prince or McCartney all three days. If they could, I'm sure they would. That being the case, as it appears to be, we get an extra day of the same quality acts from the second to bottom line in lieu of one more massive headliner. I'd say we're doing alright with this setup.

Muse can suck my balls, they're completely worthless and history will not only not treat them kindly, it will forget them completely. And I'm not hating on all the lower tier acts, betao, I'm just sayin' I'm sick of one day being a throwaway headliner-wise. I'd rather have three equally substantial headliners than The Killers one day and McCartney the next. I'd rather have Outkast, Gorillaz and Pearl Jam than Muse, Gorillaz and Rolling Stones. I'd rather GV spread the money rather than dump 4 million into one act. That being said, I'm so glad I was there for Prince and Roger Waters. Drunken rant not over??

Musical preferences aside, I agree with you. The shift to the less sexy (upon first read anyway) classic band/individual combined what most consider a lesser headliner irked me as well. It sounds like you're mostly a main stage enthusiast, yeah? The lesser of the headliners slotted against the top Sahara act is supposed to help soothe those feelings but if you're not into EDM I can see that being all the more irritating.

To an extent, you got me...a lot of times I'm in the Mojave or at the Outdoor while a headliner is playing...in fact, some of my favorite Coachella experiences of all time took place late night in the Mojave/ Possibly Gobi...Fantomas, Blood Brothers, Gogol Bordello during Bjork....only a small handful of people can get me to the Sahara during a headliner...LCD being one of them...

I know hes been recording with Trent Reznor in L.A. for the past couple weeks and there's a strong possibility that Reznor is not only producing/writing the new material but will play a handful of shows with Numan in 2010. Will Coachella be one of them?

TCHY..really? you know that is the same dicktard who said this:


Yes, this is true, however, the OP made it a little confusing. The Sunday night headliner has a production that exceeds the capabilities of the existing main stage. The Sunday headliner will provide the main stage for the entire weekend with their production already set up, not in plain view though. Other bands will still perform on this stage, however, for this band to be able to play coachella with their full production it is necessary for their stage to be set up all weekend, due to the fact that it'd be impossible for them to load their production in during a set change on the old main stage like in the past.

The outdoor theater stage is scraped and the old main stage will take its place with adjusted audio to eliminate bleeding.

And no, this band isn't U2.

What did I say that is so unbelievable? Do people still not understand the staging issue? Muse is bringing their own set-up which requires rigging that would take in excess of 12 hours to set up. The only way around this was for them to have their rigging and production constructed before the fest began on Friday.

If the story hadn't leaked then no one would even know the difference this year, besides the slightly larger version of the Outdoor Theater (the former Main Stage).

I get the band having their production constructed ahead of time to make its arrangement come show time achievable within the time constraints of a festival, that's fine. So, hypothetically: Why then would the current main stage be shifted over to replace the outdoor? It's far bigger and if the stage provided by the sunday headliner has all the capabilities to support the sub headliners and other two headliners' production, what's the point of incurring the extra cost by renting another massive stage to have someone like Leonard Cohen, Paul Weller, or Band of Horses play on? Especially when the infrastructure for a larger sound system seems like it isn't going to be utilized? It seems like using a sledge hammer to drive a 4 inch nail. Not to mention, this sounds like it might block the palm trees through the back of the current main stage :-/

01-11-2010, 12:53 AM
Agreed.

If they need to have a totally different stage for Muse (which is odd in the first place given the history of HUGE acts that have preceded them) that doesn't mean they would want to change anything about the outdoor stage. The size is perfect and sound is usually great. Only thing I'd change about the outdoor would be to bring back video screens.

The reason for replacing the Outdoor Theater is tied partly to Stagecoach. The reason for Muse needing a different Main Stage is due to their production being built IN TO the stage. It is very hard for me to explain, but the hydraulics to raise and lower their production must be built into the stage. Youtube their Euro Resistance Tour is you need help understanding the scale of the production.

The reason for the old Main Stage taking over the Outdoor Theater is because Stagecoach will be using this stage as their Main Stage when the festival rolls around. Instead of deconstructing the stage Muse will be playing on and moving the Outdoor Theater Main Stage over to where the Muse (Main Stage area) stage is. There will be 2 almost identical stages this year, the rigging and scaffolding may be reduced on the Outdoor Theater stage but they will be very similar in scope.

lol Ok, becuase if this thread is actually about confirmed artists then there should be 0 posts in it since nobody actually is confirmed until the poster comes out.

i like the Gorillaz, and i'm not that excited about Beasties playing coach, but come on..

the Gorillaz aren't even fucking close to being equals with Beastie Boys.. :nono

Wes, I think most people would need at least one (if not two, or all three) headliner to be one they consider to be not worth seeing, because it resolves any potential huge conflicts. GV could make Gorillaz headliners, but if they've got the Beasties in the bag, then Gorillaz will play either before Muse or the Beasties.

The real conflicts will come with lower tier acts playing at night. We have such a vast lot of outstanding acts on those fake posters, and if most of them come true, there lies your biggest problem. I made a promise to not miss APTBS again, but if they're up against Orbital somehow, I will have to write them an apology letter. It's not they're not good enough.......ha.

I'm actually worrying about a She & Him conflict in the mid-afternoon for some reason. I couldn't get tickets to any of their shows, which was my own failure, but honestly, put aside all the fears and doubts about heads and sub-heads, conflicts are going to be one angry bitch.

oddly enough ive been agreeing w/ you on a lot of shit lately. Especially the Yeasayer thing, i think we may have to meet up this year and rock out to their set. But yeah, theres always going to be conflicts, just the way it works. I think i saw 27 acts in 08, last year a little less. Plan that shit out!

I saw Atlas Sound opening for Spoon over the summer in Austin. I really like the album, but his live show was kind of off. Probably because he had huge sound problems. He was really funny with his banter though, and he did this Neil Young cover and made everyone hold up lights, because he said he always dreamed of knowing what it felt like to be Neil Young.

So yeah, I think I'd prefer to see Deerhunter instead of Atlas Sound again.

I don't want Pearl Jam at all but can someone explain why they were removed from rumored or whatever? It's listed they were removed due to them playing the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival which runs from April 23rd - May 2nd.

The only reason I brought this up is because I noticed Elvis Costello was playing the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival and figured that would mean he would fall into the same category as Pearl Jam regarding Coachella. Obviously not considering the dates.

This discussion took place a few weeks ago. A bunch of people were convinced that it's not possible because the two festivals have AEG in common and are both competing for a national audience so if Pearl Jam were to play both festivals then that would hurt ticket sales.

I'm with you though, making leaps in observation like that only hurt any type of credibility to the other artists on the list.

Here's our final guess

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v729/clumsy342/FakeCoachella2010-1.jpg

Looking at this fake poster made me wonder, if Beastie Boys are going to headline, wouldn't they be doing so at a lesser price for Goldenvoice? I just don't see the sense in them shoveling over more money for ranking on last year's All Points West just to have them headline the bigger festival this year.

That said, if Beastie Boys are headlining as well as Muse, I may be led to believe that we're getting one huge headliner (a stacked 2nd/3rd tier goes without saying).
