So usually they announce the initial line-up in mid-late December, right? Or at least they did last year. Any predictions from the Coachella veterans on when they will put the list up, this year? Closest to the actual date wins some...cake.

Usually on the 3rd Wednesday of January after the first Friday of January has passed. Early lineups are usually published through mIIRC two weeks before.

2nd Monday of January, but could the 7th.

The announcement seems to come earlier each year but I don't see them releasing it until the second week of January. Maybe even the third week on the day after MLK Day. Either way, you have a month of reading our drivel before you know anything for certain.

Good lord. I am disgusted that so many of you are participating in this thread earnestly.

it's usually always sometimes on the tuesday before the second wednesday of January, but only after the quarter moon rises on the second friday after the first saturday, which is only astronomically possible when Thom Yorke faces East when he blows his nose on the second monday.

No one expects it before the 7th as GV have to give their fanbase time to recover from new years. Plus the onsale date should still be in january and that will be 3-4 days after the announcement.

That's how I got 20 instead of 31.

But if you want guess January 1st as the announcement, go nuts.

Haha ya, I probably need about a week after New Year's to recover in order to see a festival lineup...that makes sense.

Has this ever happened even once?

Of course, fuckwit season seems to have started a month or 2 early this year, so...

^this says the median date since '05 has been 22.625, which would mean January 22nd at exactly 3 PM. So, that's my guess.

That's a poor method of estimating considering it doesn't take into the fact that the lineup release date has been declining; I'm sure it'll be released before the 22nd. My guess is before Thursday.

it would likely happen Sun-Tues because tickets would go onsale that upcoming Friday.

Has it ever NOT been released on a Tuesday? Aside from last year when it leaked early so they had to go ahead and release it?

It didn't leak early last year. They put it on their Facebook page at 4:00 PM.

here is something i said last week.




past lineup release dates:

2010 = Tues Jan 19th - third Tuesday of the month
2011 = Tues Jan 18th - third Tuesday of the month
2012 = Monday Jan 9th - second Monday of the month (thanks concertgoer)

2013 = Tues Jan 8th - Second Tuesday of the month <- First 'tease' video would have been posted today if so, right?
2013 = Tues Jan 15th - Third Tuesday of the month

so this year will be the 15th and videos will start Wednesday the 9th maybe?

though the tease videos were maybe just a one and done thing. I'm looking towards a 22nd announcement at this point.

eh, good enough guess. if nothing is posted by tomorrow, then i'm guessing it's not gonna go onsale until the 25th.
why? no reason.

Not coachella. Probably New Orleans jazz fest because they announced their lineup is coming out tomorrow.

Goldenvoice is owned by AEG, which helps finance and provides some booking advice to jazz fest.

I'm betting either this Friday to get some long weekend buzz before ticket sale.....or the Tues after MLK day...because really....they've proved they don't need buzz to sell out.

They will announce the Line-Up right after Bowie officially tells them "NO" yet again and they concede and put out their slightly watered down version.
