    Somehow I can see The Chems on the main stage as a main festival headliner ......

    big enough? Yeah probably. But should they? No way, definitely keep them in the sahara.

    What do you all think is the likelihood of Duran Duran or Smashing Pumpkins headlining? They are headlining V Australia in April, and while that in no way means they will play Coachella, it does mean they will probably be available to the possibility.

    Anyway, from another thread, all the possible headliners I could think of:
    R.E.M.
    White Stripes (if Meg White gets over herself)
    Beastie Boys
    Oasis
    Smashing Pumpkins
    Duran Duran
    The Killers (puke)
    No Doubt
    Green Day
    Muse
    Prince (highly unlikely)
    U2 (even more unlikely)
    Beck (subheadliner at most)
    Weezer (ditto)
    Portishead (guaranteed subheadliner)
    The Verve (ditto)
    A Tribe Called Quest (ditto)
    Death Cab for Cutie (ditto)

    I can see Oasis headlining one of the days, and Ashcroft pissed off getting second-third billing. I mean, the guy expects The Verve to headline Glastonbury.

    I can definitely imagine that, but hopefully he realizes that this is America, and the sunset slot on the main stage is the most magical by far.

    I was actually just thinking of Duran Duran the other day. Would GV get them to headline though? Most people I know, they think Duran Duran are just a joke...

    I think Beck and the White Stripes coheadlining is a distinct possibility for a Friday night providing Meg can get over her anxiety issues. Beastie Boys for Saturday and well...I have faith in GV to come up with something big for Sunday. Bowie, Outkast, or Gorillaz.

    Lucky bastard. You're going to record at least Portishead's set, right? That'll make you the most popular person on this board since The Daft Radiohead Punk posted about the 2007 Daft Punk tour.

    Deftones or Silverchair big enough to headline Coachella? I think Deftones definitely are, Silverchair probably not, considering they're Australian and all. If GV could get Stone Temple Pilots to reunite, I would cry. RATM gave me slight tears, but I think I would bawl for STP.
    Ron Paul 2012!

    Upcoming Shows:
    Four Tet
    Coachella 4/20-4/22
    Death Cab for Cutie/Magik Magik Orchestra
    Radiohead
    some other bands

    Deftones I can defintley see as a headliner!
    However, Silverchair could probably have the Crowded House slot or co-headliner slot

    Deftones should definitely headline one of the nights. They'd bring the punch just like RATM.

    they are not big enough to headline.

    god forbid we have an australian headliner.

    but seriously, how did Silverchair even enter this discussion? they're no-where near headliner status. how low were they on the lolapalooza bill this year? yeah.

    I really think Zeppelin is gonna follow The Police's lead and (maybe) play Bonnaroo, then some ENORMOUS arenas and call it quits. I may be surprised but I seriously doubt Zepplin playing Coachella.

    I have heard a lot of people talk about Outkast headlining (which would be really fun and different), but how probable is it actually? Have they spoken at all about touring in 08? Just curious...

    Well, Robert Plant IS performing with Alison Krauss at Bonnaroo, which I actually don't know if that would raise or lower the chance of Led Zeppelin playing. Seems like everybody but Robert Plant wants to tour again.

    I'd be down for Outkast as long as they don't play anything from Idlewild. God, that album was terrible.
