View Full Version : Are Phoenix Headliners The Next Time They Play At Coachella?

I think they are. Their American fanbase has exponentially grown over the past couple of years plus their next album will have to meet lofty expectations from critics and fans alike. I heard that they're taking a break after this relentless touring to focus on the next record

If they played this year I think they'd be the third name on any given day. After another successful album, I wouldn't count them out as headliners. Remember their Lollapalooza headlining gig is probably equivalent to a second name at Coachella - like Atoms for Peace and Faith No More for example.

I kind of agree second line tops. If their next album has as many singles as Wolfgang did then I can maybe see them headlining, but thatd have to be one hell of a follow up

Given that it usually takes them about three years for a new album, that should be enough build up and anticipation for their next one. and if it's as good as wolfgang they'll have a headlining spot.

I think it will be at least 3 years before they release another album. All they've done is tour non-stop for pretty much 2 years. I bet they just chill out for a year before even thinking about getting back together to do another album.

But no... not quite headlining status. Something doesn't seem right say if... well... maybe... if you think about it. Are they really all that less popular than... Gorillaz?

I could actually see them taking less than 3 years with all the momentum they have from Wolfgang and possibly hitting up the studio soon.

I'm not too sure about headliners though...this is the first album really to hit the U.S.

I'm positive that a new album will come out before 3 years. During their set at Outside Lands the guy said something along to the lines of "We wont be back in SF for awhile we are going to take some time off to record a new album"

To answer the question yes I think they will headline. A weak headliner yes but they will be.

Not comparable to AF. I would've said so a year ago, but once you've sold out two shows at MSG and had a #1 album the debate kinda goes out the window.

They've also met the criteria I've always had of at least 3 radio hits (Rebellion, Wake Up, Ready to Start).

Phoenix can sell out 3,000 person venues maybe, and have two hits that I know of, so they're coming up but not quite AF level.

Two days ago in Vancouver, Arcade Fire played to an almost sold out 11,000 person stadium. Four days ago in Vancouver, Phoenix played to a definitely not sold out 7,000 warehouse.

As far as Vancouver goes... Phoenix are definitely popular, but nowhear near as popular as Arcade Fire.

In terms of music quality:

Exactly, it's about next time, not right now. Come 2012/2013 with a new album remotely as successful as Wolfgang they have no choice but to headline. That being said though this year if coachella was later on in the summer the would have been second sub compared to first name on the 3rd line.

MissingPerson
10-01-2010, 04:19 AM
Also, not that it really matters, but for the record - Arcade Fire probably would sell out an 11,000 person venue in Paris, fairly comfortably.

Maybe not as quickly as Phoenix, but still. Bear in mind, Arcade Fire is a semi-Francophone band; they are arguably more mainstream in France than they are in the US. They headlined Rock En Seine earlier this year, and the venue they're playing in Marseille in November holds 13,000. And Paris is like the Hipster mothership.

The only other takeaway show I've seen is the Beirut one... which is amazing.

MissingPerson
10-01-2010, 06:32 PM
The Takeaway Show guys are Parisians, so they generally record when bands are in town, although they've started going further afield of late. The famous one is Arcade Fire in an elevator; the original Takeaway Show idea came from an AF show that the guys were at, which spilled out of the venue and turned into a sort of marching band parade down the street. The guys ended up hitting it off with Arcade Fire, so most of the bands involved initially are part of their wider family one way or the other.

Otherwise, I'm fond of the Owen Pallett running around:

you can't use Phoenix selling out the Bowl as a marker of where they are. there were plenty of tickets at a MUCH smaller venue here in SD...

If AF would have played the Bowl instead of the shrine this year, I would imagine a quick sell out, and i can't imagine if they had Grizzly Bear and Girls opening...

IMO, headlining Coachella is a combination of commercial success, name recognition and credibility. Every Coachella headliner so far (even JJ, to a more lenient extent on the credibility side) has earned their place under those grounds.

Phoenix paces well with sales and are obviously respected, but they aren't quite famous enough to headline...yet. In four months, though, anything can happen.

Arcade Fire sold out the Bowl on a co-headlining tour with LCD Soundsystem. Phoenix sold out the Bowl this year with Grizzly Bear opening. Vampire Weekend sold out the Bowl this year with Beach House opening. The latter two did so despite also playing Coachella earlier this year.

The Hollywood Bowl is a 17,000+ seat venue -- comparable to most arenas (a couple thousand shy of MSG). If you can sell out a venue that big in LA, you can probably headline Coachella (with the release of another, at-least-as-good album). Doesn't matter if they weren't that big two years ago. They are now.

Phoenix will have the most highly anticipated album of the year, whenever they wind up releasing said album. Buzz, plus staying away the rest of this year, and all of 2011, would put them in the prime position to headline Coachella 2012, or 2013.

The headliners are weak, full stop. There was something that happened to cause for such underwhelming headliners. I don't know whether it was financial, or the artists they were chasing just weren't ready or willing. You just can't say that this year is anywhere near on the same level as the last three Coachella's.

Really dissapointing as there as so many logical artists missing from the poster. I'm not denying there's a whole BUNCH of goodness in there, and enough to have a rad time. Its just a little sad when its hyped up so much and expectations are so high to be left yawning at the announcement.

Confused to not see a couple of these artists on the poster this year...

The headliners are weak, full stop. There was something that happened to cause for such underwhelming headliners. I don't know whether it was financial, or the artists they were chasing just weren't ready or willing. You just can't say that this year is anywhere near on the same level as the last three Coachella's.

Really dissapointing as there as so many logical artists missing from the poster. I'm not denying there's a whole BUNCH of goodness in there, and enough to have a rad time. Its just a little sad when its hyped up so much and expectations are so high to be left yawning at the announcement.

Confused to not see a couple of these artists on the poster this year...

Toro Y Moi
Crystal Castles
Kavinsky
Boys Noize
John Talabot
Big Boi
Kendrick Lamar
Com Truise
Nicolas Jaar
STRFKR
Unknown Mortal Orchestra
XXYYXX
Alabama Shakes
Deadmau5
Death Grips
How to Dress Well
Poolside

Heaps more....

This. I could've sworn Kavinsky and Toro Y Moi were shoe-ins too.

Dude first of all, shut the fuck up. Second of all, Boys Noize is playing under an entirely different side project alongside Skrillex. If this is too difficult for you to grasp, I'll understand. Dog Blood is n o t t h e s a m e t h i n g a s a b o y s n o i z e l i v e s h o w . Particularly when he has only just NOW got a new album, and awesome live show, I don't think its unfair to expect Coachella to give him the decency of his own set.

Thirdly Fuck Off

Coachella isn't in Paris.
Tell that to Club 75
