    Like 2004, but Portishead and Aphex Twin replacing Pixies and Kraftwerk. Mmmm.
    Epic....But just keep RDJ on the main stage..I don't want to have to run over to the Sahara...

    But then you'd have a much shorter set and an inappropriate environment.

    Due to the tie, your top 5 performances should be as such:
    1. (tie) Daft Punk @ Red Rocks/Bjork @ Coachella
    3. Bjork @ Red Rocks
    4. Arcade Fire @ Coachella
    5. Underworld @ The Fillmore Denver
    *based upon tedious fact checking.

    FYI in case it wasn't clear yet, when you give me the option to choose more than one, I'm going all of the above.

    Like I give a shit who headlines Coachella, I'm going anyway.

    My sentiments exactly...I haven't been disappointed yet! Wait...Madonna was a disappointment, but then watching from atop the VIP area as everyone migrated to the Sahara more than made up for the actual entertainment.

    Not really, because I'd probably be far away in the tents while they were playing.

    The real question is who could headline? Considering how Coachella headliners are "alternative" music bands that are large enough to tour arenas and amphitheaters, but still haven't completely lost their indie cred, and most came into existence or entered public awareness in the 90's, there aren't that many left. I guess it could help to bring in some respectable acts that have been around longer, like David Bowie and Neil Young or poppier acts like No Doubt and Duran Duran.

    Sure, there's Talking Heads and The Smiths, but both are completely unrealistic. We already know Moz wouldn't play nice with Johnny Marr and find two other musicians for $75 million. So who CAN headline, realistically?

    And Aphex Twin would NOT be a headliner. Maybe second line on the poster, but not top.

    Boourns, are we talking original headliners or rehashed ones? Because my answer to your question would vary on your answer.

    In response to Boourns.

    Radiohead
    REM
    Pearl Jam (don't know if they'll be touring then or not)
    Jay Z
    Bob Dylan (don't know if he'll still be touring either)
    Kanye West
    White Stripes
    Beck
    No Doubt

    Too Soon?
    NIN
    Coldplay

    Guys that don't seem to fit the bill but...
    Metallica (i think they were at Coachella last year because i saw something on my local radio stations website where they were covering Coachella and they were talking to the guys in Metallica and it said something underneath the picture like "so and so asks Metallica if they are headlining Coachella next year")
    Eminem
    Dr. Dre


    Some of those are borderline too.
    The White Stripes 9/18

    Well given that it was 6 months ago, wouldn't you know, look and see if this was true or not before saying something like this?

    Original. But first let's take a look at previous headliners:
    Rage - too soon
    RHCP - too soon
    Bjork - too soon
    Tool - too soon
    Depeche Mode - too soon
    NIN - a bit too soon, but they will be touring next year from what I understand
    Coldplay - release date is a few months away, and the album will surely be released a few months after that, but still a bit too soon for them to headline again
    The Cure - playing Hollywood Bowl 4 weeks later. no chance in hell.
    Radiohead - tour starts around then, but they usually play Europe first, so hopefully they break tradition and do Coachella
    Beastie Boys - I doubt it since they spent all 2007 touring, so 2008 sounds like break time...has anyone heard anything about them doing anything next year?
    Oasis - new album in 2008, so maybe, but are they big enough to headline again considering how massive Coachella has become?
    Janes Addiction - broke up again, but you know Perry Farrell will be there
    Beck - awesome performer, but not big enough to headline a 60,000 person festival

    Who else? The only alternative/indie rock acts that I can think of that are big enough (meaning they headline large arena/amphitheater gigs in American cities besides NY and LA), not counting reunions:
    Pearl Jam - playing festivals and GA shows again, so why not
    R.E.M. - new album on the way and recent live cd/dvd should invoke nostalgic memories. personally, I'd love to see them finally play, and I know they aren't as big a draw nowadays, but I think paired with a strong co-headliner (My Bloody Valentine), they'd work out fine since everyone knows them and most people at the festival would see them.
    The Killers - ugh, I hope not, and I don't know what their 2008 plans are
    Weezer - played in 01 and 05, but didn't headline. new album on the way, so maybe?
    Foo Fighters - didn't headline in 2002, wouldn't in 2008, but definitely a contender for a second or third-billed act
    Green Day - new album coming in 2008, but would be considered "too pop" with not enough crossover appeal with the rest of the traditional Coachella fare
    Smashing Pumpkins - will they still be touring six months from now? I haven't heard. But in any case, 2007 was the year for this to happen at Coachella, and it didn't, but we got Rage instead, which was far more impressive.
    Muse - aren't they going to be working on their next album at the time?
    Outkast - a lot of people want this, but doesn't seem any less unlikely than usual
    Kanye West - why not? he drew a huge crowd last year, so I'm sure he'd have some drawing power if he's actually listed on the poster next time.

    Going against type:
    David Bowie - people clearly want this to happen, but that doesn't make it so
    Neil Young - would be great, no objections here...how likely is this?
    Bob Dylan - definitely for Bonnaroo, but I really doubt Coachella
    Metallica - considered the "jump the shark" moment of Lollapalooza, so no
    U2 - never play festivals, but if they did, it would sell out instantly. there's also the problem of crossover appeal. a lot of fans of traditional Coachella fare also like U2, but the opposite is not as true. but people said the same about Rage, right?
    Rolling Stones - too big
    Bruce Springsteen - I predict The Boss for Bonnaroo 2008, where he can do a 3+ hour set
    The Police - just make the pre-sale password "roxanne" again
    Paul McCartney - I'll probably get a lot of shit for what I'm about to say, but I'd be down with this. would certainly beat spending $300 to see him at Staples Center
    Duran Duran - new album, right?
    Prince - never plays festivals, but would be a massive draw
    Aerosmith - ahahahaha, what a joke
    The Eagles - too disgusting to be a joke
    Nickelback, Linkin Park, Evanescence, MCR, Britney Spears, Hinder, ICP, Maroon 5, Justin Timberlake, John Mayer - most of the fans of these bands aren't old enough to camp on-site, and don't forget the issue of crossover appeal (but I'm sure a lot of Coachellians would be down for seeing Justin in the tent)
    Barry Manilow - he is music and he writes the songs!

    Reunions:
    The Smiths - will never happen
    Talking Heads - as unlikely as ever, never even rumored
    System of a Down - too soon, but I think there's a good chance of Serj Tankian playing his solo record
    No Doubt - didn't they reunite for a Gwen Stefani gig earlier this year?
    Pulp - would be second-billed at best, sadly
    Blur - ditto (and having lunch together != reunion)
    The Verve - ditto (this reunion is already happening)
    My Bloody Valentine - ditto (already strongly rumored)
    Portishead - ditto (arguably not a reunion)
    Faith No More - I forget, but which project is Mike Patton with this week?
    Pink Floyd - they'd have to increase the capacity to one million
    Led Zeppelin - charity one-off does not mean a world tour, sorry
    Soundgarden - doubt it. does anyone have anything to support or debunk such a reunion?
    Stone Temple Pilots - doubt it. does anyone have anything to support or debunk such a reunion?
    Creed - OMG FUCK YES! BEST COACHELLA EVAR!


    So, what do you think?

    Paul McCartney is someone that could...I guess
    Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band too

    you bring up Green Day which scares the shit out of me because i remember DaftRadioheadPunk saying something about Green Day being early favorites for headlining Coachella 2008 and that guy called the Daft Punk tour so he has to have some inside information.

    REM sure seems like a no brainer for Day 1 though doesn't it?

    Oh yeah, I forgot about that. His previous scoops qualify him as credible, but wasn't it too soon to call out headliners like that? I doubt all of next year's headliners are booked already, if any.

    Bruce Springsteen would certainly be...different. But I think he'd fit in best at Bonnaroo, where he could play for 3+ hours.

    And REM would be awesome.

    Yeah, maybe next year is the one, and he finally will play. He came for ATP on 2003, five years after his last show in US. Coachella 2008 would be five years after his last show here

    Bah, I'm just looking for random reasons to believe he will come. There is hope, though. He was playing mainly unannounced shows for the last couple of years, but now he announced ATP in UK and some more gigs over Europe. A live perfomance would be insane. Bring the sandpaper and the food mixer!

    The Smiths - will never happen
    Talking Heads - as unlikely as ever, never even rumored
    System of a Down - too soon, but I think there's a good chance of Serj Tankian playing his solo record
    No Doubt - didn't they reunite for a Gwen Stefani gig earlier this year?
    Pulp - would be second-billed at best, sadly
    Blur - ditto (and having lunch together != reunion)
    The Verve - ditto (this reunion is already happening)
    My Bloody Valentine - ditto (already strongly rumored)
    Portishead - ditto (arguably not a reunion)
    Faith No More - I forget, but which project is Mike Patton with this week?
    Pink Floyd - they'd have to increase the capacity to one million
    Led Zeppelin - charity one-off does not mean a world tour, sorry
    Soundgarden - doubt it. does anyone have anything to support or debunk such a reunion?
    Stone Temple Pilots - doubt it. does anyone have anything to support or debunk such a reunion?
    Creed - OMG FUCK YES! BEST COACHELLA EVAR!


    So, what do you think?
    I heard a rumor Roger Waters was going to be there...which is a strange rumor to begin with but a perfect place for his recent sets. I will fly back from Fl if he shows up and would choke my mother for tix if Pink Floyd gets back together (one can dream can't he)

    Default Re: Who should headline Coachella 2008? (let's try this again)

    i'd prefer Gilmour over Waters. plus with the chance he would perform with Richard Wright would kill.
