Whats the deal? If The Strokes were closing out the outdoor wouldn't they just be billed lower?

I sincerely hope so, but after last year with Vampire Weekend/MGMT/Thom Yorke all on the outdoor, who knows. This is the first time we've had dual headliners though, yes?

Tripping me out. I would expect that with Black Keys so they could do Black Roc-type stuff.

Every 2nd act last year was on the Mainstage. This year will be the same. Like all years

Perhaps there will be 6 headliners like Lollapalooza. There's room on the poster.

They figured Kanye's ego needed to be put in check, so he has to share the spotlight. Haha, fuck him.

Duran Duran has sold more than 80 million records. Makes sense that they are 3rd on the lineup. I am so over Kanye.

Yeah, Sunday is stacked with big names. Kanye West, the Strokes, Duran Duran and PJ Harvey....I wonder how they are going to work that out.

Outside of the wedding album in 93 they have been on slow burn since. I do love Duran Duran but outside of a single SONG every 5 years or so, they have been extremely forgettable.

now who has done a track with Kanye, that could show up at the end of his set, to do a surprise performance...that wouldn't require the elaborate stage setup that hasn't yet been built?

I think there is a pretty good chance the sunday headliner is still to be announced. if you count the lines on the poster there is only 9 lines of artists on sunday whereas friday and saturday both have 10 lines of artists.
just sayin....

That has more to do with two headlining sets (kanye, the strokes) and the fact that Sunday has a 12 am curfew while Friday and Saturday have a 1 am curfew. Sunday is not getting a headliner and I would guess that if any day is getting a major add its saturday only three bands on the second line while the others have 4 or 5.

Sunday is also an hour shorter than Friday and Saturday. Keep that in mind.

that also use the same visual production engineers as Kanye?

Almost anyone? But I wouldn't be surprised to see Jay-Z join him for awhile. He seemed to loooooove being at the fest last year.

The poster, having not matched this current color scheme looks like it's a notebook paper draft of something to be finalized in the future. Whether Kanye / Strokes move down a line or we get a couple bigger additions down the road I just don't think we're looking at the final piece.

The sad thing is a lot of people would stop bitching if another "acceptable" headliner was added even though the undercard is top notch.

weeklymix
01-19-2011, 01:38 PM
I don't know about you guys but the fact that it doesn't match / looks like it was taped on the site just makes it seem like an unfinished product. I'm not the authority on web design or anything, but it seems rather intentional.

Thanks for agreeing. It looks like a crumpled piece of paper was flattened out on the site. That to me says working product. When the mountains turn purple I think then we'll have our full lineup. Crystal Castles was spelled wrong originally. It seemed like they rushed it on a draft because they had a deadline to meet for ticket sales. They're not afraid to add late and I think they will.

Regardless of layout every poster has seemingly matched the site's colors for the year in question. I just don't think they're going to leave the poster like that. The teal they used in the font isn't even found in any of the illustrations.

Now that you mention it, there does seem to be a "rushed" sense to it. That might just be our aesthetic opposition to it but than again, maybe not. I posted this in another thread but this is pretty much a reflection of '08. It would appear that GV/PT was working and is continuing to work on getting someone specific but as of yesterday couldn't lock it down. So instead of waiting, they posted what they had. Whether or not they secure that "someone" is anyones guess.

all this speculation hurts my brain. I can even bring myself to speculate about additions and another headliner. Quite frankly, I don't know what viable additional will make this look any better.

I mean...Bowie with Arcade Fire. I'M NOT SAYING IT'S POSSIBLE. I'm not even a huge Bowie fan. But that would work on a bunch of levels.
