    Default Coachella Cancellations

    I was listening to Future Sound of London's Accelerator at work today and enjoying it like I always do and wishing that they hadn't pulled out of Coachella in 2004. The excitement people on the board had over FSOL's inclusion in the lineup piqued my curiosity and I bought Lifeforms, We Have Explosive, and the previously mentioned Accelerator. I got really pumped to see them but before too long, they had withdrawn from the festival. But as I was thinking about the missed opportunity, I wondered when they would have performed exactly. They were scheduled for Saturday, if I recall correctly, and Kraftwerk were the Sahara headliners that day so the most likely time for FSOL would have been the Mark Farina slot, 9:00 - 10:30. Thing is, that just happened to be the exact time Radiohead played, so I probably would've missed FSOL anyway.

    And thinking about that, I remembered how Wilco had also pulled out of Coachella that year because Jeff Tweedy entered rehab. Had Wilco played, they would have been on the main stage, right? And if they had, that would have bumped all the slots up a notch, which would have meant that either Radiohead closed the night at the same time as Kraftwerk or that somebody other than Radiohead would have closed out the main stage.

    That being said, aside from Doves and Cocteau Twins, the past few years haven't really seen the cancellation of any major acts, have they? Although I must say, those examples from '04 really turned out to benefit me (and I'm sure more than a few others who would've cursed Paul Tollett for creating those conflicts). And while Wilco has made good on the "raincheck," what do you suppose is the likelihood of any of the other bands finally making an appearance?

    I believe Sparta played in Wilco's spot... I could be wrong.

    22-20s pulled out in '04, when I was really excited to see them. They played the year before but I didn't go. Then they broke up. At least they put out a live EP.

    Actually, there are 3 paragraphs. The first one ends with the following sentence: "Thing is, that just happened to be the exact time Radiohead played, so I probably would've missed FSOL anyway." The second paragraph ends even more conspicuously. So "word" invalidated.

    EDIT: does that make it easier for you to read?

    Yes they were in Wilcos spot, We Are Scientists ''technically'' cancelled this year. But it was a premature confirmation on the ine up, so this year had no cancellations which was nice. nothign major has happend though. 2006 had a few things. Hard Fi went bye bye and The Subways too.

    cancellation of any major acts
    or minor acts sucks. 'line up subject to change' is a sad reality of concert biz. There could be any number of reasons a band doesnt play.. we dont advertise them until they commit. (even if they advertise it first). and still that is not enough sometimes. And if it works for them to come back, yay. (not working could be a bazillion reasons we wont publish for their own privacy)

    was there ever a reason for T Raumschmiere to cancel in 2004? it seemed like they canceled the day of the show, because there was no announcement besides a piece of paper at the tent saying that they weren't performing.

    Did Richard D James say why he didn't perform on 2001?

    Yeah its a little of subject, but it really isn't. Coachella Cancellations is a little vague...lol

    How many artists signed autographs at the Virgin tent this year? It seemed like most canceled, is that usual? I didn't really pay attention in 06, nor did I hear anything about artist no shows that year. It appears that artists agree to sign at the Virgin tent to sell more albums at the venue. Old timers, is that usual?

    Jem cancelled in 2004. Jimmy Eat World got added late and dropped out ten seconds later. I believe there was also some concern about the Flaming Lips dropping out, but obviously that did not end up happening.

    Okay, so far we have...
    Wilco
    Future Sounds of London
    22-20's
    Jem
    Jimmy Eat World
    Coctease Twins
    Doves
    We Are Scientists
    Hard-fi
    The Subways
    T. Raumschmiere

    And yeah, there sure were a lot of cancellations at the autograph tent this year. CSS didn't even properly cancel...they just didn't show up. What the hell? That sucked because I stood out there frying in the sun without shade or water for over an hour.

    Was anyone at all surprised that Amy Winehouse cancelled her autograph session? I'm surprised she even performed. Oh yeah, Amy and her crew stole Jarvis Cocker and co.'s beer. Class act.

    I read on a couple music blogs back in the day that the second 2004 headliner was going to be Nine Inch Nails, but Trent cancelled because he wasn't anywhere near ready to put out a new album.

    I was upset about these:

    Jimmy Eat World
    Doves
    Hard-fi
    The Subways

    Didn't care too much about the rest.

    Agreed. But, atleast the few songs we got were great.

    Cake wanted to cancel half way through their set. They were pissed about going on late. They were passed about "all the noise" coming from the main stage. Babies!!

    They were on the line up for like 30 sconds then it dissappeared so unless there is something else I never found out they were just a glitch more or less on the line up. I wish I couldve had a screenshot of the line up before the cancellations and whatnot happend in 2004. Just think if it all stayed though, Wilco, Future Sounds, JEW, and T Ramschmiere with the rest of it.

    Kind of wasnt bummer a lot because it wouldve ended up being a conflict on friday I think for sure. I like them a lot so it will be cool to see them next year with another album under their belt, Mojave tent for sure though.

    That wasn't really a cancellation. He never really confirmed for this year, he already had gigs booked and GV prematurely put him on the lineup,
