I have bolded who I would want to go see that coachella doesnt have. I left Daft Punk out because I am seeing them in seatle. I am fairly confident PJ will be doing a US tour shortly after lolla.

There are plenty of great bands, but I've seen so many of these bands before at Coachella. Pearl Jam and Patti Smith are a good get for Lolla...and trust me Coachella missed out on Yo La Tengo. What happened to all the SP rumors?

I'm not too excited about this lineup because most of these bands will hit up Coach first, plus Daft Punk will be on tour this summer as well.

Boourns
04-11-2007, 12:38 PM
Please don't tell me Ben Harper is a headliner? If so, that's just shameful.

Pearl Jam, Daft Punk, Muse, Modest Mouse, Interpol, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Roots, Patti Smith, TV On The Radio, LCD Soundsystem, MIA, Blonde Redhead, Sparklehorse, !!!, Polyphonic Spree, Peter Bjorn & John, CSS

It's not a bad lineup, actually. But since it's three days things might be too spread out. And I didn't know Silverchair still existed.

But no Arcade Fire? Decemberists? Jarvis Cocker? Smashing Pumpkins? Boooo.

Any chance the Polyphonic Spree will be added to Coachella? I was really hoping they would be on the original line up, or an addition. But nothing points to this yet...
Over all... Coachella = much better than Lolapalooza
or in other words... Coachella > Lolapalooza
Lola would be MUCH better if they get Radiohead or NIN to headline one of the days. But still even then... it wouldnt be better than Coachella. They just dont have the Rage factor. And for that matter... no Gogol Bordello either!

summerkid
04-11-2007, 01:13 PM
pretty much lolla failed this year. They didn't manage to get a third headliner they didn't manage to get rage to reunite (which seems like an act more suited for lolla than coachella). They didn't get Arcade Fire. The only thing they really have going for them that Coachella doesn't is Daft Punk and Muse.

Hannahrain
04-11-2007, 01:17 PM
This is ridiculous. Both lineups are allowed to be good. Great, actually. If they were reversed, you people would all be talking about how they didn't manage to get Daft or the Stooges.

Coachella is good. Lolla is good. It's time you accepted it.

starrdogg
04-11-2007, 01:18 PM
Basically, you take out all the bands that are playing both festivals and you have this:

Lolla has:
Pearl Jam, Daft Punk, The Stooges, Modest Mouse, My Morning Jacket, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Patti Smith, Spoon, TV on the Radio, Yo La Tengo, MIA, Polyphonic Spree, The Hold Steady, Muse and then a bunch of crap

Coachella has:
Bjork, Rage Against the Machine, Jesus and Mary Chain, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jarvis Cocker, Air, Happy Mondays, Manu Chao, Arcade Fire, The Decemberists, DJ Shadow, Faithless, Gogol Bordello, Of Montreal, Explosions in the Sky, The Gotan Project, Lily Allen and a bunch of really cool bands on the undercard

Unless Lollapalooza adds a band the caliber of Smashing Pumpkins or Radiohead and several good smaller acts, this isn't even close. Coachella dominates!

But the fact is Coachella already had Iggy and the Stooges in 2003 and Daft Punk in 2006.

as much as i love iggy, hannah that new album is terrible I really don't want to see them in their current state it would make me very very sad.

They still will rock even if the last record sucked. I bet even those songs rock live. Nothing in their current state will prevent them from kicking ass. They still play the back catalog.

Even if Lolla would add Radiohead and Beck to that lineup, people still would be talking how worse Lolla is than Coachella..


I hope that lineup is missing one headliner tho

Why is everything a competition on these boards? Can't people just enjoy the fact that there are a bunch of pretty good music fest's to choose from that all have great acts play. Coachella is great. Roo is great. Lolla is great. ACL kinda blows but who care's about texas anyways.

Alchemy
04-11-2007, 01:46 PM
I guess it is because V-Fest battled them out for the Pumpkins and Police. I hope that Modest Mouse can make it to both though... Damn their new CD is great.

I too, wish that we got The Polyphonic Spree.

Smashing Pumpkins are playing the V Festival in Baltimore the same weekend as Lolla (along with the police and beastie boys).

I can't figure out who the other headliners of Lolla are. Pearl Jam, but otherwise, everyone else is someone who'd be a sub-headliner at Coachella.

They do sell single day passes but not until about a month or so before the event. That is usually when set times are revealed too.

Modest Mouse

Yo La Tengo

I guess that's the Lollapalooza way: have just one real headliner per year. At Coachella, Daft Punk was the dance tent headliner, not the regular headliner. And Ben Harper? Gross. Last year they presented Kanye West and Manu Chao as headliners, but neither is/was headliner-caliber for Coachella, despite the similar capacity.

He must be a lot bigger in the states than in Canada.

Shit. Anyone want to buy half a dozen Coachella passes?

OK, just kidding, but seriously... there are some real gems in that linup. MAJOR gems: yo la tengo, patti smith, the YYYs, daft punk, MMJ, stooges, modest mouse, TVotR, spoon, son volt, electric six, jim noir (!!!), viva voce, and (NOOOOOO!) the polyphonic spree... not to mention a bunch of the indie talent that's also playing Coachella.

Oh well, Coachella wins big in one important category: diversity.

I would agree that there is much more diversity at Coachella as far as styles of music. I always thought Lolla should have more electronica but I think they don't on purpose so they wouldn't be compared to coachella. As far as Daft Punk as a headliner for Coachella. I think Lolla tries to be the "everyone could enjoy themselves at our festival" festival. With having the kids stage and all they really try to get the whole family there. Not really my cup of tea but shit in 10 - 15 years who knows. When it was announce it was cool and people were excited but no one really knew what they were in store for. All of the hype surrounding Daft Punk happened after the Coachella performance (and it was worth all of the hype)

Touring commitments I imagine. Muse needs to come and HEADLINE a day, that should be the next time they play Coachella. I mean I think the Forum performance last night made it a lock to be able to draw a big crowd in L.A. so Muse at Coach at the top of the bill is a no brainer now.

By top of Bill, you do mean second line right? Because, as much as I love Muse, I dont seem them as a headliner for a day at Coachella. But a line 2 sub-headliner for sure.

I wasnt saying they arent talented enough, or dont have a big enough fan base or that they dont deserve the attention they are getting right now. Muse are not up to the same calibre as some other headlining acts. Acts such as Bjork, RHCP and Rage Against The Machine. Whether or not you like any or all of the headliners this year, they have proven themselves as artists and musicians, and stood the test of time. If this was in the UK, I would think Muse would be a great choice for a headliner. However, Muse just got "big" in North America like... 2 years ago. Compared to Bjork, who has been making music for a long time, and is a well known artists for her eclecticness (if that is a word). Red Hot Chili Peppers, who have been making music for the last 20+ years. And Rage Against The Machine who made this show that holds 60,000 people sell out in 80 days in advance. My point is that even though Muse are playing Stadiums now, it doesnt mean they are headlining material. Maybe in a few years. And again, nothing against Muse, I am a huge fan. But as I said, if they were a sub-headliner I couldnt be happier.

Whatever. If Coldplay can headline, so can Muse.

Boo, no Pumpkins. :( even though I knew the chances of them playing both Lolla and Virgin were slim, I was still hopeful. Now it looks like I'll have to choose between a weekend in Chicago with all my friends (and Muse) or a weekend in Baltimore by myself to see my long time favorite band.

I love that the lollapalooza music player uses "Tomorrow" for Silverchair

I wasnt saying they arent talented enough, or dont have a big enough fan base or that they dont deserve the attention they are getting right now. Muse are not up to the same calibre as some other headlining acts. Acts such as Bjork, RHCP and Rage Against The Machine. Whether or not you like any or all of the headliners this year, they have proven themselves as artists and musicians, and stood the test of time. If this was in the UK, I would think Muse would be a great choice for a headliner. However, Muse just got "big" in North America like... 2 years ago. Compared to Bjork, who has been making music for a long time, and is a well known artists for her eclecticness (if that is a word). Red Hot Chili Peppers, who have been making music for the last 20+ years. And Rage Against The Machine who made this show that holds 60,000 people sell out in 80 days in advance. My point is that even though Muse are playing Stadiums now, it doesnt mean they are headlining material. Maybe in a few years. And again, nothing against Muse, I am a huge fan. But as I said, if they were a sub-headliner I couldnt be happier.

Muse have been around as long as Coldplay and if I recall correctly, headlined glasto in 2004 alongside paul mccartney and over morrissey (who i believe headlined coachella) plus they quite possibly put on the best show in the world at the moment.

Muse has been around longer than coldplay. Muse - 1992, Coldplay - 1998

I think that Muse is a much bigger draw then Coldplay in their homeland of the UK, but Coldplay owns in the States. Case in point their last shitty record X&Y sold almost 1 millions copies in it's first week and remained in the top 10 for weeks in the States. They have sold out the Verizon Wireless in Irvine, the Bowl in Hollywood, MSG in New York, The Pond in Anaheim, Coors in San Diego, the list of arenas goes on and on and on. Their on just about every popular movie soundtrack you can think of and are played at least twice daily on every popular radio station in this country. Don't get me wrong, Muse is a much more appealing band to me and are much more entertaining live but your kidding yourself if you think they can headline a U.S. festival simply because they sold out the fucking Forum...give them a couple of years at least.

SILVERCHAIR ANNOUNCE NORTH AMERICAN DATES OF 'YOUNG MODERN' WORLD TOUR

Silverchair has announced their first full North American tour since 1999. The dates will be in support of the band's new album Young Modern which will street on July 24 in the US and Canada on Eleven: a music company through Warner Music Group's Independent Label Group.

In spite of the band's long leave of absence they recently sold out some New York, Los Angeles and Toronto shows within minutes. This phenomenal response drew a full page feature in the LA Times Calendar section and lead the LA Weekly to declare that "Silverchair have burrowed into a 'career band niche' … thriving on quality songwriting and authentic delivery".

Since exploding to prominence in the mid-90's Silverchair has morphed into a much more melodic and idiosyncratic band than they were as teenagers. They are currently riding the crest of a wave in Australia with Young Modern becoming the fastest selling and most critically acclaimed album of their career to date. It was certified double platinum in their homeland after just one month.

Young Modern sees Silverchair pushing their collective envelope by combining an eclectic mix of pop sensibilities and melodic indie rock with some epic orchestral flourished by legendary Beach Boys collaborator Van Dyke Parks.

Dates for the North American leg of the Young Modern world tour will be as follows:

Friday, 13th July - San Diego, CA - House of Blues Tickets on sale June 8th
Saturday 14th July - Los Angeles, CA - The Wiltern Tickets on sale June 9th
Sunday, 15th July - Anaheim, CA - House of Blues Tickets on sale June 8th
Tuesday, 17th July - San Francisco, CA - The Independent Tickets on sale June 10th
Thursday, 19th July - Portland, OR - Aladdin Theatre Tickets on sale June 8th
Friday, 20th July - Seattle, WA – Showbox Tickets on sale June 8th
Saturday, 21st July - Vancouver, BC - Commodore Ballroom Tickets on sale June 15th
Monday, 23rd July - Atlanta, GA - Roxy Theatre Tickets on sale June 16th
Tuesday 24th July - Washington, DC - 9:30 Club Tickets on sale June 14th
Friday, 27th July - New York, NY - Roseland Ballroom Tickets on sale June 15th
Saturday, 28th July - Philadelphia, PA - Fillmore at the TLA Tickets on sale June 15th
Monday, 30th July - Montreal, QC - Le Spectrum Tickets on sale June 7th
Wednesday, 1st August - Toronto, ON - Phoenix Tickets on sale June 14th
Saturday, 4th August - Chicago, IL – Lollapalooza Tickets on sale NOW
Sunday, 5th August - Minneapolis, MN - First Avenue Tickets on sale June 16th

In addition to their own headline tour Silverchair will also make a mainstage appearance at the 30,000-capacity Lollapalooza Festival in Chicago on 4th August alongside Arcade Fire, Bright Eyes and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah.
Quite frankly, the facts speak for themselves.

Young Modern is Silverchair's fifth consecutive #1 Album in Australia. They've had more number 1 albums in their homeland than any other Aussie band in history (Midnight Oil had four, INXS and AC/DC had three). Rolling Stone magazine has called their new album a "towering triumph" and the lead track Straight Lines spent four weeks at #1 making it Silverchair's biggest hit since their breakthrough single Tomorrow back in 1995.

The fact that you left out the Silversun Pickups just goes to cement the fact that you're a forum terrorist.
