the only thing is they would headline.... so it has to wait. Finish the album late enough next year and id be more than thrilled to see them in 2014.

They didn't headline in 2010.

Coachella Bound
09-07-2012, 07:53 AM
ohhhhh but that crowed, it went all the way back to the ferris wheel. In the 6 years of my attendance, ive never seen anything like it. And yeah, i can deff credit a lot of that to the 'wild sneak in' of 2010, but theres no way they put that on the outdoor again. If this single is any indication of what kind of album we're looking at.... plus a solid 7 months of promotion.... the reputation alone of the bands members, and their relationship w/ the festival.... i could probably muster up a few other selling points, but the fact is, and im not even a big big Thom Yorke fan, they would make a very good headliner.

Yes, Thom Yorke is very popular, but they also generated a huge crowd playing against literally nothing else for the first full 25 minutes of their set.

DeanCorso
09-08-2012, 09:20 AM
and then the crowd stayed for the following 40 minutes still, because no matter what they were up against there were more people dancing at the outdoor than they were at the sahara.

They had a big crowd the year that there was 30k extra in the grounds. Does that make Phoenix headline material too?

Although the fact remains that It Rained All Night was one of my happiest moments ever at Coachella and I'm not even all that sure why. I wasn't on any drugs I can think of, the crowd was annoying as shit, we were way far back, but that fucking beat was impossible to resist. He could've played the shit for a half hour.

yes, in a few years Phoenix will be a strong possibility. In fact some would already consider them to be a weak headliner. Argue, speculate all you want. The interest and crowd for Thom was much larger than the Gorillaz set. Im not sure why some would even argue against the idea of it, nor do i understand the need to call people dumb fucks for having an opinion. Its not going to be the name/idea alone... its going to take a lot of positive press, promotion, and a highly acclaimed album.

The fact that a lot of Radiohead fans would pay to see Thom take a dump on stage doesn't make AFP a worthy headliner.

In all fairness, he didn't call you a dumb fuck because you have an opinion. He called you a dumb fuck because you've shown great aptitude for being a dumb fuck.

AFP would not headline. But there's a difference between "would not headline" and "didn't have an impressive crowd." I don't care if people snuck in. Where was the Pavement sneak-in boost? Plenty of people didn't have huge crowds in 2010. Thom Yorke was the third name on Sunday, and arguably bigger to the common Coachella attendee than Gorillaz or Pavement. AFP had BY FAR the biggest outdoor crowd I've ever seen. I have no idea what would be second. They wouldn't headline but to act like "oh yeah their crowd wasn't that big" is simply incorrect.

For the record, tons of people have speculated Phoenix could headline...it's actually one of the more common names I've seen.

And that "thom yorke dump on stage" joke has to be the most unfunny, overused, annoying, stupid joke on these boards.

edit: in fact those thom yorke DJ sets like the one at MoMA over the weekend might be worse than a dump on stage. A good DJ he is not.

the 2010 AFP set was my second favorite show ever. I'm a huge radiohead fan and have seen radiohead twice and they're not even in my top 10 shows so I'm not just being biased. The energy of AFP was something else.

Also. Jack Johnson headlined so stfu about Thom Yorke not being able to headline. All arguments about the legitimacy of headliners went out the door with that one.

amyzzz
09-10-2012, 07:54 AM
Whether or not he/they headlines, I would like to see this at Coachella.

Larry Farnsworth
09-10-2012, 08:31 AM
Would be all in for this. It's distinct enough where I don't really care that Yorke played last year with Radiohead. I am also in the camp that doesn't think they would headline, but rather would play opposite/semi-opposite the "headliner" on a "weak" headlining night (i.e. the Black Keys last year).

Coachella Bound
09-10-2012, 08:36 AM
thats the thing though.... theres no way they put that act on the outdoor again. Sub-headliner seems to be the more reasonable answer.

mrhand
09-10-2012, 08:44 AM
AFP was the best show I saw in 2010, I can't wait for the new album, and I'd crap muh pants if they're back in 2013...but they're not in the headliner discussion. Not nearly enough name recognition.

Larry Farnsworth
09-10-2012, 08:50 AM

I mean...why not? Correct me if I'm wrong, but in 2010 there might have been more of an appetite for that kind of thing, particularly among more casual music fans. Radiohead hadn't released an album in several years (In Rainbow was late 2007, correct?), and hadn't made an appearance at Coachella since 2004. The band hadn't toured in about two years, so anything Radiohead related was going to be at a premium. The IDEA of Thom Yorke playing was a huge deal.

Radiohead are now wrapping up a massive tour where they hit pretty much every market, including major festivals. Their last album was (like it or not) considered by many to not be their strongest effort. It's entirely possible that the fever for anything and everything Radiohead related may not continue to extend to Atoms For Peace in the spring of 2013. Again, this could all be wrong. But the idea that AFP could be on the Outdoor against a headline-caliber act isn't really that farfetched, and to say "that won't ever happen" is foolish.

Coachella Bound
09-10-2012, 08:57 AM
i suppose.... but AFP didnt even have an album last time, in fact they didnt even have a name, and look what kind of attention it attracted. This time around theyll have an album and more than just a few months of press. But your right, to say "won't happen" is foolish.

Radiohead haven't played english speaking Canada in 4 years.

Weirdly, I really enjoyed the Thom Yorke set in 2010 and walked out on W1 Radiohead.

amyzzz
09-10-2012, 09:35 AM
It's funny because while I am kind of sick of Radiohead, I heard that new AFP song and I listen to Thom Yorke solo stuff, and I still do have an appetite for this. Maybe I'm alone in this.

Jonsi -> Phoenix -> Atoms in 2010 was pretty damn awesome.Ah I wish I could have done that. I was Orbital, who were amazing, I got overwhelmed by the acid, wandered over to AFP, and I think I got to hear Clocks but gave up went to the main stage and waited for Gorillaz. I still want more AFP. I did manage to see Thom and co at The Orpheum the previous fall though -- fucking awesome.

Thom Yorke's Atoms For Peace. Problem solved :P

But seriously, you're probably right in that they wont be the name at the top of the list, but we'll all know who the real headliners are

AfP can and will probably end up headlining if/when they ever come back. It doesn't matter whether "they can" or whether "they should", GV could get Randy to headline and it will still sell out.

I've seen her 4 times and that coachella show was by far the best. In comparison, during that show she had no shitty songs from 2nd album, she was relatively unknown and still exciting. I was very pleasantly surprised at how amazing her voice was live, how she engaged her audience and got them all moving at a show about a singer. Her back up singer wasnt singing half the song, she had a voice level other than MAXIMUM

How can they possibly headline Amy? lol they don't have an album out yet, and do they have even one song that would be recognizable and resonate with the crowd? aside from Thom Yorke diehards? AfP =/= Radiohead. Second line is generous.

The_Den
11-05-2012, 03:17 PM
Headliner? Unfortunately not. I went for the first time in 2010 (Yes I was a noob but I didn't gate crash) simply for Thom Yorke ????, Pavement, Faith No More, Devo, and Gorillaz. I was right in front of the sound booth for Atoms For Peace on the Outdoor and it was amazing. To this day it still was the best weekend of my life. I've been to 11' and 12' now and it still is one of the best experiences of my life. Having Thom back again for 3 out of my 4 Coachella's would be great. Do I think it will happen? Maybe? But when it comes to him and everything Radiohead related. I don't get my hopes up. If they do play maybe something like Pulp or At The Drive In's spots on the main stage like this year? If not, I DO HOPE we get Ultraista!

The only way Gilmour headlines is through some kind of PF association. They're not paying him headliner money to play his solo catalog.

Even though people may know who David Gilmour is, it doesn't mean they give a fuck to see him. People want Roger Waters. I wish Thom Yorke would record himself reading childrens bed time stories. That would be fun.
