Whine, whine, whine. Admit it - the lineup is good. It's good every year. End of story. We can't have the exact same bands every year. You all will be there anyway.

I think this is an incredible lineup with some nice surprises. I was really hoping for Portishead though. My Bloody Valentine would've been nice too. We are fortunate to have this. I'm happy.

Every year has been awesome, I'm sure this year will not disapoint in the slightest.

No last year pretty much sucked. It's ok to admit it. Wolf Parade sounded great, minus the huge delay losing half their set. Bloc Party sounded like crap. Wolfmother rocked it. Madonna was so incredibly stupid, I much enjoyed saying that she canceled while the masses waited for her late ass and then listening to it spread through the crowd like wild fire. Yay for Massive Attack.

Last year was a blast. Daft Punk, Wolf Parade, Deerhoof, The Juan Maclean, Mogwai, Massive Attack, Wolfmother, Metric, Rob Dickinson. Damn, there were so many good sets.

By Coachella standards of course. It's never not been worth it when I have attended, in my opinion. Last year was the worst I can recall.

I've enjoyed every year immensely. I've been from 04 on.

Actually I never saw her, but if you were there you saw the crowd...it spread back through most of the tents. You didn't have to watch her to be in the shit show putting her in a tent caused.

Agreed... Its always an enjoyable experience, with or without the superstar headliners... its still an experience. I would almost pay $85 to sit next to the Tesla Coil for an evening, as long as i could wear a 2007 Coachell t-shirt the rest of the year. :)

If last year was 47 straight hours of being kicked in the nuts only to end with 1 hour of Daft Punk, it would still be the greatest weekend ever.

I think the line up looks great, I hope the festivals in the UK get some of these acts like Rage Against the machine, The Arctic Monkeys and The Jesus and Mary Chain.

Very Very good. Better then I thought it was going to be..though MBV and Portis head would have been nice..

I like the lineup too. What's wrong with the whiners?
Don't be scared of discovering new stuff. And don't hate the Chili Peppers. They are great.

Sounds like you should have stopped going after you initially found it to be not worth your time. I've also been going since 04', and as long as my liver is still functioning, and my ears are still working, I plan on continually going for the rest of my days.

The way I look at it is that Madonna released a dance album last year and probably her manager said, "Hey you want to be hip, you should play the dance tent at Coachella"

Last year I only went one day, but it still made my year. I mean I was front row center for Duke Spirit, Common, Kanye West, Sigur Ros, and then I got to see Ladytron and Daft Punk :)

Excellent year.

This year I can only afford one day again, so I am going Friday.

And you better believe I will enjoy every minute of:

Faithless
Bjork
Interpol
Sonic Youth
Peaches
Silversun Pickups
Digitalism
Benny Benassi
Julieta Venegas
Amy Winehouse

I am in love with Friday.

It always amazes me that people get so upset and state that the lineup sucks because the one band that they wanted to play is not playing. Every year has had great line ups and I am extremely excited for this years.

They made enough money off her ass to make this year 3 days, and have RHCP/RAGE headline!!!
