I'll start with a prediction of the 2011 line-up. I know its not heavy on EDM but I'll be the first to admit that's not my genre of choice.

What do you suggest the Coachella poster contest should be about this year? It would be stupid to do a rehash of last year's contest.

Predict the 2011 lineup I guess. I don't know. It was just a lot of fun. I'm up for whatever they decide.

Thanks. I can't wait til they announce the 2011 lineup. I'm hoping a lot of these bands are on the list.

Someone should make a Coachella poster with the headliners being The Tet Holiday, The Dive Poets, and Rags to Radio.

You're billing is all kinds of fucked up, but I do like the design

I made it. I took an original poster and extracted the trees and mountains in photoshop, color tinted them, then just Photoshopped in a gradiant sky.

Just rying to guess as many as I can. Diversity and obscurity help. I don't think they'll all be there. I hope some won't, but I think they might.

Hey, I didn't say I liked them all! But there are always those few questionable acts that may be a little more pop than most people prefer. Me included. I can't stand the Far East Movement, but they do bring diversity...

As for Brandon Flowers vs Pulp, I have them on the same line so in my mind, one isn't below the other, they are equal on the billing.

I thought you were referring to "Create A Festival" actually, though I haven't heard anything regarding an official Coachella poster contest either, so there ya go.

The Create-A-Festival contest last time was awesome. I can't believe its been like, 2 years since the last one. I still wear my shirt Menik made me and I always get the funniest comments about it.

Idea for a game (maybe contest, not necessarily) that I stole from somewhere else:

Festival draft, everyone takes turns picking one act for his personal festival, and once he takes that act, no one else can use it for his festival. You take turns until you have however many bands, let's say 40, and then people can vote on the best festival or whatever.

If you made this into a contest, whoever won could get a free lemonade or camping pass or something sexual.

Please do another poster contest!!!!

That being said, with all the whining and complaining that took place last year, I doubt it will happen.

Also, Wiz Khalifa would be alot higher. You may not know him but there alot of others who do: he sold out our venue here faster than Smashing Pumpkins, Pretty Lights, Interpol, and a lot of other names that would be higher than him on a poster.

Sucks, I know.

On that first poster I actually hope Sunday is that bad. It would give me an opportunity to fly home and not miss a second day of class. Plus I've seen Brian Wilson three times before anyway.

Many of you said my festival line-up was bad but I want to point out that I got 27 of them right (out of about 100 I listed), including 2 headliners. You may not like it but I had some idea as to what would be there and it was 6 weeks ago. You may not want those bands there but many of them are. that's all I'm sayin'.

...and during last year's poster contest I made a 2011 for fun (in February 2010). Got 18 of those right too and not all big names either (Hurts, Warpaint....) so give credit where credit is due.

GV should have held a create the official poster background contest, I'm sure some people here could have came up with some great designs...much better than taking the 2010 background, grayscaling it, upping the contrast/brightness, and throwing a rough layered texture over top at least. Pretty pathetic.
