So a few jam bands have played in the past like My Morning Jacket, STS9 and Modeski, Martin and Wood. Aside from the shorter sets compared to other festivals why can't we get a lil jamminess in So Cal.
Some bands that could be interesting are Disco Biscuits or Umphrey's McGee.

Also does anyone think My Morning Jacket or Jim James could be playing this year?

Yah, someday i'll get to Bonnaroo. Since I live in Southern California i've only really gotten to Coachella and FYF.

Primus is pretty much a jam band these days. I'd like to see them make an appearance, but doubt it since they've been through LA a few times recently.

If you don't go to Coachella and FYF you could afford Bonnaroo.

As you might guess from my avatar I'm a big MMW fan. Would love to see them on the lineup. Other jam band type acts that might be good at Coach would be Rubblebucket, Galactic, Marco Benevento Trio, and Orgone. Bring the funkiness. People hate, but music is music, maaaaaan.

I've had the unfortunate please of seeing STS9, Trey Anastasio, Widespread Panic, Perpertual Groove, DSO, Umphreys Mcgee, Lotus, moe, and a plenty of others that fall into this category.

Fuck that noise. Keep that shit at the Roo or the dozen of other jam festivals that are in the US.

This is about as far as I would go for for jam bands at Coachella. I like jam bands but there is a time and a place for them, and Coachella isn't that time nor place.

Holy shit My Morning Jacket is not a fucking jam band. Just because the unwashed trustafarian masses have embraced them doesn't make them a bunch of tuneless noodlers. Same with Medeski Martin & Wood - they're a jazz trio, but their flair for improvisation and unfortunate mid-90's endorsement from Trey Anastasio means you can't go see them in a decent environment without some dreaded up wookie spinning in the aisles and yelling "WOOOO" at every harpsichord solo.

Billy Martin from MMW has a new group called Wicked Knee, that just released a new album "heels over head" on tuesday & is touring europe this year. Would be a fun early daytime slot kinda thing. Les claypool is touring with his "Duo de twang" this summer, no primus. Some jam-bandish electronica is probably more likely with the likes of Eliot Lipp, Bassnectar, Michael Menert & STS9. I could also see Tea Leaf Green, Femi Kuti or Tortoise on the polo fields as possibilities. But for the most part, jam bands have TONS of festivals to play all over the U.S. Coachella would only grab 1 or 2 artists, if that.

Umphrey's is playing 2 nights in LA (March 22nd & 23rd) at the end of their spring tour with no shows scheduled till May. Joel the keyboardist moved our to LA last year, so who knows maybe a lil UMPH love is in our future.

Also I loved last years Jam band at Coachella Gary Clark Jr. Can't think of any other acts from last year that was a jam band.

I would love if Phish played Coachella..

After all, they did have their very own, and very successful festival at the polo grounds. Brought over 40k fans, and their entire fanbase is centrally located in the Northeast. Of course, I'm sure some would think it would hurt Coachella's "image", so to speak.

Even though Trey did collaborate with members from The National, Bon Iver, and a few other enjoyed bands around these parts on his newest solo album. Trey Anastasio Band would obviously be a more realistic performance.

The Genre "Jam Band" has become quite vague these days but there are always some on the line-up every year. You could even make an argument that Grace Potter and the Nocturnals is a Jam Band and they had a great set last year. You'll probably discover a new band you have never heard that could qualify as a "Jam Band" in 2013. As far as the Big Name Jam Bands like Phish, Widespread Panic and The String Cheese Incident, 50 minutes doesn't quite cut it for them unless they are planning on playing one or two songs only and they probably wouldn't be welcomed enough to rationalize their cost as a headliner. Acts like The Disco biscuits and Bela Fleck would be more realistic for the Coachella Line up. With that being said, I would absolutely Love to see any of the following that could possibly be qualified as a Jam Band: Neil Young, The Allman Brothers Band, The Mars Volta or anything Les Claypool at Coachella.

I'd be just fine with String Cheese Incident playing a 50 minute set composed of the songs "Rivertrance", "This Must Be The Place" and "Under African Skies"... just sayin'. Maybe throw in "Joyful Sound" if they have time.

I've never understood the hate for jam bands from people that like shitty techno music.

That being said, I'm surprised that Umphrey's McGee or Disco Biscuits haven't played yet.

And I'd take any of the more folky jam acts during the day (Allman Brothers Band, Gov't Mule, Yonder Mountain String Band)

Phish would still be amazing at Coachella to prove to everyone how fucking good they are.

this doesnt sound good to me. it sounds like noodley hippy bullshit. that being said, i respect your opinion to like it. you just need to understand just cause it does something for you doesnt mean it will do something for everyone. the world is not waiting to discover "how good" Phish is, they've kinda been around a while. most of us just dont care.

ditto for Umphreys, String Cheese and so on. they have their place in the world but that place is not here. keep the hippy jam bands at the other fests plx

second.

On that note, have you heard Big Gigantic? EDM but with a live Drum kit and Sax. They played Jam Cruise XI and apparently killed it. If they get booked I highly suggest you checkin em out.

might be because coachella is known for EDM acts, not hippy jam bands. i'm into many other genres of music that dont really belong at coachella. when im in the mood to see this kind of music live, i go to a show that is geared towards that type of music. i dont go on the forums and bitch that "oh LA Philharmonic should totally headline and play dvorak's 9th symphony in its entirety to close out the main stage, and beck's dad can be the conductor" because i know that it wouldn't really belong at coachella (as epic as it would be).

just go to bonnaroo. you dont seem to like coachella that much anyway

I really hope Coachella invite My Morning Jacket back to headline one day. I also think it would be a completely daring and bold move for them to have Phish headline one year as well. Good live music is good live music - straight up - and both these bands are on top of their game...way more than other fellow past and present Coachella headliners.

While musical taste is extremely subjective (a fact that we all know), I think Umphrey's is unfairly thrown into the "Jamband" category. They are very different than the likes of WSP, Phish, Yonder, Mule, Grateful Dead, yadda yadda. A Lot of their music is similar to the likes of YES, Floyd, and King Crimson. Rarely do they noodle, and they can throw down some nasty ass metal. Just my 2 cents.

yeah, i didn't mind the rain or anything. i was tripping pretty hard too. so hard that when i went back to the bootleg to find the songs i did enjoy, they were gone. at one point during the second set, i said to my buddy, 'it feels like the music is coming from inside me.
