This is the one poster placement that is the most puzzling to me. It seems like these guys headline festivals in the UK. How is Noel fucking Gallagher on the second line with these guys buried in super small type. Not to hate on Oasis, but the talent in that band is all in Beady Eye.

Yes, and Coachella caters to artists of the past, despite what state they are in now. Which is also why I didn't get all the people complaining when MUSE headlined, as they had been headlining HUGE festivals overseas for years. Either way, I've been a fan of Kasbian for years and never seen them live. I'm stoked to see them, and really hope they don't crash them into a Schedule conflict with Andrew Bird, St. Vincent, or Destroyer. Also, hopefully they don't stick them on a mainstage during the day. Always the worst.

Glad to know I wasn't the only one confused by this. They headlined this festival in Scotland over Jay Z, and are fifth line at Coachella? I was also surprised by how low the Kaiser Chiefs were. Still should be an epic show if they get a nice later timeslot.

Saturday is going to be a conflict clusterfuck. Kind of like last year when they put all the britpoppy bands on one day and then had a eliza doolittle v. plan b v. twin shadow conflict in the opening slot. that sucked.

The Kaiser Chiefs billing so far down on the poster is a weird one too. In 2007, they were on the third line (I think based on only their first record). Now they have 4 really good records (ok, that one with Ruby on it kind of sucked, but the first one and the most recent two are great), and they are buried in the small font.

Really looking forward to Kasabian and the Vaccines because they are two bands I've never seen.

Yeah, they're still relatively unknown in the United States. Their debut album garnered some airplay when "Club Foot" was released and they played quite a few a shows with Oasis and JET. Since then, their marketing in America has been pretty slim.

I saw the Vaccines last year opening for Arctic Monkeys. All I have to say is if the singer warms up his vocals before he gets on stage, they'd sound a lot better.

I am American and I don't know more than 2 people who have heard of Kasabian. Love them to death myself. I agree that Kaiser Chiefs and Kasabian are mistakenly low billed on the saturday list. I hope there won't be a stampede.

It's a shame. I'm the same way though, 90% of my friends have no idea who they are. On the other hand they're by far one of my most anticipated acts...as well as the Kaiser Chiefs.

Kasabian might have a little Noel appearance somewhere in their set and vice versa. What I'm intrigued is how Noel and Kasabian are going to treat the Kaiser Chiefs. I mean they hate each other big time, and there are no bigger cunts than northeners.

Can we make this thread about Kasabian again? Kasabian are my number 2(behind Radiohead of course) for the day. Kasabian kiss ass, and it sucks that they are more popular here. When you really think about it they are kinda a "rare" act seeing how they haven't toured the US since 05-06.

Kasabian were in my top 3 of Saturday with Andrew bird and Radiohead, but since Kasabian announced a show in Los Angeles on the Wednesday after the event, I am going to try and lock tickets up to that, pass on them at chella, and go see someone else I want to see playing a night slot, like a bon Iver, Shins, Jeff Magnum, St. Vincent, Feist, or who knows who else who will likely conflict with them.

If u haven't seen them for a few years you're in for a treat. Seen them about 5 times over the past three or so years and their set list is practically flawless. Singalongs, anthems, couple of chill outs....these boys keep getting better. Doesn't seem to matter whether there playing to 70 or 70,000, it's like it's the last gig they'll ever play.

Went to a Kasabian show last week thinking that I could get my fill and then skip their set if there was a conflict. I ended up having an amazing time and this is now a can't-miss set for me. The energy was really impressive and they really brought the arena-style vibe to a very small venue. Their new stuff sounds great live. I'm still dumbfounded that they aren't more well-known in the States. I'm hoping for an after-dark but not too late Mojave or maybe Outdoor set. I'm not sure they are big enough for main stage but putting them anywhere while it's still light out would be a travesty.

Tom, the singer, and Noel have been friends since Kasabian's debut album. Noel was probably watching side-stage and his favorite tune by them is Club Foot.

I only saw Club Foot and Re-Wired due partly to losing my blackout mess of a brother, and partly because I wanted to check out at least half of Feist, but they sounded excellent. They had an excellent crop of Brit-Rock bands this year.

Tom, the singer, and Noel have been friends since Kasabian's debut album. Noel was probably watching side-stage and his favorite tune by them is Club Foot.

Noel was sidestage for most of the set laughing and joking with Tom whenever he would walk to the back of the set. It was funny to watch.

Seconded. I think it's a safe bet. I don't usually jump that much at concerts, but that was worth it.

Yea man that shit was insane. Me and my girl were right up front and even she was going nuts!

they def. made the most out of their 10 song set. was texting back and forth with psychic friend about how it can be that they are not a mainstage night time band here in the states, especially considering they headline euro festivals. we surely got an arena level show in the mojave that night from a band at the top of their game.

was so not impressed with coachella merch this year that i ended up buying their shirt instead...and i don't wear band shirts any more.

Just read this. Made me even more upset about this 2 weekend shit.

Before Kasabian’s extremely loud, but totally killer set, the British rock band threw out hundreds of Kasabian-monikered rainbow-colored glow sticks and throughout the set, made the band hold them up and clap them.

I know it's not a HUGE deal, but I'm sure it added a ton of life to the crowd and just wish we weekend 1'ers could have got the same treatment.

Their performance for Weekend 2 was absolutely insane. Crowd was bouncing for the entire set, and by the final song there was a pit about 30 yards wide going on.

Yeah the seizure sticks had a shrink wrap on it that says KasabianLive (like the website). It was hard to rock out with a foam stick in your hand but I got used to it. The crowd was singing along louder than in LA on Tuesday. Tom was quite impressed.

Everyone had those glow sticks around me at the weekend 1 set. Some girl was passing them out.

"…And then we finished up on the West coast … at Coachella.
California was insane. A week of madness: boozing and laughing, dancing and tearing it up. We tore it up. But most important was the gig, It felt like we had something to prove. Rock and Roll is dangerous when it backs you into a corner, because you become an animal. You want to show people what you can do.. We respect what being in a band is all about creatively and I suppose mentally.

It’s strange with the Coachella festival. Now they have it over two weekends. Which is great if you don’t have a great first weekend, because you can put it right the second weekend. So with that in mind, we absolutely killed the first weekend. It was huge. It surprised us. We had a very similar moment when we played Glastonbury years and years ago and we didn’t know if anyone was going to be out there because of the time we were playing.

It was late at night, half 8, it’s a big American festival, we’re an English band. Did anyone even know we were playing.? If you had a look at the poster, you needed a monocle to see us. So you peep out of the curtain, and you realise that it’s rammed and you can feel there’s something in the air… like they’re baying for it, they want us to play and we absolutely killed it. Came off, had an incredible evening.

But then two days later you go… uh, we’ve got to do that again. It’s not that you don’t want to but it’s like ‘we’ve ticked that, we’ve done that. We destroyed that place. It’s not ready again. ‘

So, we arrived. And it was hot this time, Like, seriously hot. So we spent 8 hours in a motorhome with air conditioning on in our pants (underwear). Walking around, just listening to tunes. But in a lot of ways it did us a favour because it meant that it was like we were caged, so when the door was opened to go and play the gig, we were so excited. You know that feeling you get when you’re trapped in a room for too long. Like kids at school, wild kids, and you lock them away for so long. And they’re all fighting and taking the piss out of each other and you get wound up. It felt like that. And then someone opened the door and said ‘right, you’ve got to do it again’. And by that point, we’d had a few beers so it was like ‘right, lets go and kill it.’ So we attacked it even harder.

And so it did us a favour. Because rather than go ‘we’ve already done this’, we played harder, faster, louder than before and it was even better. And I was surprised when we came off because we were all like ‘well that was actually better’. It was well better. And then after that we carried on partying through the night, which was quite something. "

Furthermore, Noel says their debut is his favourite brit-pop album of the last 15 years and then said their set w1 was the best he had ever seen

They were really good weekend 1. For the first third of the set I was struggling with all the posing, but the music carried me through, and I was able to ignore it.

Glad to hear their performance was so well-received. I figured it would be. Their show at the 9:30 was one of the highlights for me this year. I'm still surprised they weren't on one of the outdoor stages.
