Probably. Hollywood Bowl next month, ~5000 capacity venues everywhere else.
So I tried to get through their new album twice and just as with the Xmas record, I got frustrated and quit near the end both times. I enjoyed their set in 2010, as well as their first two albums, too.
2014 is old news, where are the 2015 posters at?
CAN WE ADDRESS THE FACT THAT LIL B WHO IS SERIOUSLY LIKE THE WORST RAPPER EVER IS ON MOST OF THESE POSTERS. goddamn. dont get me wrong, i find him hilarious and entertaining, but i would not pay money to see him perform
do you know what a joke is good sir?
Great poster. Pretty much what needs to be there
Friday seems way too stacked.
Fuck yeah Diarrhea Planet.
Arctic Monkeys headlining. Hilarious. Other than that, I dig.
Is Moby worth more as a live performer than he is as a DJ? He has a new record on the way, though I didn't hear much about his last new record, and I expect about the same from this effort.
Is Lou Reed worth wasting poster space a second year in a row? I don't know about you, but that second line space is pretty critical, in my opinion, and is not to be fucked with after the creation of the poster. Lou Reed going back on the poster is sort of insulting the next year over.
I really want to bash that position for Skrillex, but that's probably where he'll get put next time he's at Coachella. More like second line, first name. You know how the kids just eat that shit up, while most wouldn't know who the hell NMH are (brings to mind Pavement on the main stage).
The Sunday conflicts don't even make sense. Not enough stages or compatibility for those names, with a lazy undercard. I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that you like EDM music... probably quite a bit, if you would name half of those shamblers. No Daft Punk? No Justice? Are you afraid of creating too popular a poster, or a poster with overly popular picks? Try mixing the popular with the dashed hopes of disappointing headliner past (No details. You know what's what. Blur was fun though.) Is this the year people know DP will be there, so they just don't give a fuck? I guess the real question would have to be: Since we know Daft Punk and No Doubt are headlining 2014, and that Rolling Stones will never headline, "Who will headline Friday night?"
The answer is clear. Discuss.
Stone Roses are/were a rare reunion act. The Arctic Monkeys play US festivals *every* year it seems like. That's the difference. If the Stone Roses were US festival whores then there's no way they would have headlined.
Also, Phoenix headlining is pretty funny too in retrospect. Look at where they're billed at other US festivals. In fact, I don't think they're even on the main stage at any of this year's fests...
EDIT* I could perhaps see the Arctic Monkeys headlining if their next record is an absolute smash in the States.
Arctic Monkeys haven't gone anywhere popularity-wise since they played at 6ish in 2012. Come on.
That set wasn't greatly attended either if memory serves me correctly...
I watched about 5 minutes of their mediocrity on the webcast before doing some cleaning in another room.
7 million is a drop in the bucket compared to Gotye or Pitbull and neither of them will ever headline.
Arctic Monkeys headlined Glastonbury because they're fucking *huge* in the UK. Not so much in the States. Also, Didn't Kylie Minogue headline Glastonbury? That festival is a completely different beast.
Arcade Fire and Nine Inch Nails are the two confirmed headliners at this point. Not sure who to surprise headliner will be though but I have a feeling its gonna be Lady Gaga. Put those three artists on the poster and it will sell tickets period.
Arctic Monkeys in 2007 was one of my favorite sets from my first couple years of Coachella. That first album was so fucking good, the entire set just banged. Oddly though, seeing them return dressed up as rockabilly kids kinda bugged me. Maybe I'm a big queer, but I kinda liked how cute and boy-band they looked initially juxtaposed against how hard they rocked.
They did sell out 3 wiltern shows i thought. California certainly loves them. Foster the People would headline before arctic monkeys. I doubt arctic monkeys would headline but coachella does whatever they want
