They only eliminate bands, not add.

Wrong. Coachella adds bands almost every year.

They usually aren't big names though.

Madonna, Kanye, Prince and Aphex Twin were pretty big adds.I doubt we get anything that big this year but the second line still seems very weak on Saturday for Coachella standards.

Aphex Twin was an add once??? that would be amazing if a band of that caliber was added!...but I won't keep my hopes up!

Last year did they add bands?

I know Jonsi was added like the day after. Other than that I can't think of anyone

Edit: Nevermind just remembered SSSC and Imogen Heap

I doubt we get any this year. Who knows though. They didn't need to add any bands last year and they did...

It happened like 30 minutes before Coachella sold out. I remember people on here saying they sold all the tickets cause they were the huge act. (all sarcasm of course)

I just heard from an inside source that they are adding Mum and Silversun Pickups.

Oh shit! Silversun Pickups are surprisingly sick live.

Highly doubtful that anymore big names will be added. Prince wasn't an addition in '08, he was scheduled to headline the whole time, GV was just uncertain if he would be capable of playing

Seeing that royksopp is playiung ULTRA got my hopes up SO much for a coachella appearance

Ahhhhh I LOVE SSPU. They sounded so good on the Coachella speakers in 09 too.

I think they might be adding another set for Lil B. He deserves to be on the poster more than once

MIA got added after Amy Winehouse's epic cracked-out breakdown a couple years back

Moby just got added to Ultra's lineup, I wonder if he'd possibly be a late add.

Much like last year, I don't foresee any big additions.

If something does get added, it will be as big of a yawn as Imogen heap was last year.

Um, no. For the purposes of everyone that doesn't work in the GV office, Prince was an add.

I mean for all we know this argument could be used for every single add Coachella has ever had.

Exactly. In 2007, when the festival sold out early, there were no adds. There isn't any incentive for them to spend more $$$, so don't expect any big adds.

There were a couple of very minor adds in 2007.

NEVER once has Coachella added a band.
