    Default The OFFICIAL 2008 Coachella Lineup Pool Thread! Click here to enter!

    Okay gang, for the 2007 lineup I started a prediction pool on the old board just for fun. And bragging rights. For the 2008 lineup, the pool will also be for fun...it won't cost you anything but your time.

    OFFICIAL RULES

    Prediction Requirements
    You MUST list 20 bands, no more, no less. Also, headliners will be required, so the first three names on your list will be considered your headliner predictions. For correct headliner guesses, you will be rewarded TWO points for each, and all other bands will count as one point.

    How To Enter:
    Either email your predictions and board handle to coachella08predictions@gmail.com or private message your list to idrive1life. You can resubmit your list as often as you wish until the deadline, but keep in mind that in the event of a tie, the poster with the fewest resubmits and/or the earliest final submission, will win. So there's incentive to just send your list in once and be done with it. Also, for example, if Rick Astley gets confirmed by CNN on Friday, and you had previously submitted him in your list on Thursday, then you still get points for him, but he'd be restricted for everyone else. Okay?

    Prize:
    Unlike the 2007 pool, the winner of the 2008 pool will actually get a prize to be determined at a later date, donated at my expense (most likely a cd or vinyl 7" of a Coachella 2008 artist), but if I end up winning this contest, then the next person will get the prize, because since I'm the one paying for everything, I'm not exactly eligible to win. I make some pretty illogical predictions, so I doubt that will happen. My guesses are for fun.

    Deadline:
    All entries must be sent via email or PM to coachella08predictions@gmail.com or idrive1life by Tuesday, December 18th at 10PM Pacific Time. No exceptions.

    Misc:
    Do not post your list, or anyone else's, on the board before idrive1life reveals them all.

    RESTRICTED BANDS (FINAL LIST):
    Cold War Kids (added 12/16 @ 3:19am)
    The Breeders
    Dwight Yoakam
    Heidi Vogel & The Cinematic Orchestra
    Autolux
    The Verve
    Death Cab for Cutie
    Austin TV
    VHS or Beta
    Rabbit in the Moon
    Just like in 2007, to guarantee diversity in the prediction lists, bands that are considered "confirmed" will be restricted. This list will be finalized sometime Monday, and if it just so happens that pitchfork or billboard "confirms" another band immediately after the list is declared FINAL, then those latest scoops would be fair game.

    Any questions?

    They revealed to the world the whole "WTF? THAT CAN'T BE TRUE" pairing of Scar Jo and the Jesus and Mary Chain, and scopped the Friday set times a few days early, so they are just as dependable as the souces that "confirmed" Rabbit in the Moon, Austin TV, Death Cab, etc.

    I'm in, but your restrictions list is stupid as it relies completely on hearsay, MySpace and blog posts. The Breeders is pretty much the only solid confirmation on the list.

    I received 2 or 3 (one with correction?) entries in the e-mail already. *I have not opened them yet*

    Oh well, I guess, it does not matter now whether they have been officially confirmed or just as heavily rumored/probables ... DO NOT INCLUDE the following bands in your predictions:

    The Breeders
    Dwight Yoakam
    Heidi Vogel & The Cinematic Orchestra
    Autolux
    The Verve
    Death Cab for Cutie
    Austin TV
    VHS or Beta
    Rabbit in the Moon
    Coachella 2015 Food Wish List
    Food Trucks: Germany's Famous Bratwurst, Fist of Fusion, Komodo, Oooh LaLa Crepes, Ludo Truck, Seoul Sausage, Vizzi Truck, Kogi BBQ

    If there wasnt that list though, I am sure most people would list at least some of those bands as part of thier predictions. I know I would.
    And as Boourns said, that list is the create diversity in our predictions list. There are 120-ish bands playing at Coachella. Only 9 are restricted.

    Good question. Ask idrive since he has to deal with all the emails/PMs.

    I did it without asking. I figure it will be okay since the deadline isn't for a few days.

    This sounds so GOd-damned fun that I'm going to spend half an hour of my life to type up my twenty most favorite bands, and have trouble with email, just so I can wait a month to have my dreams crushed!

    Boourns,

    1. Should I allow them to make unlimited changes before the deadline? I think we should. I can handle that. (*Well, you could add that in the rules and you could use it, like in case you need to break ties, i.e, winner will be the one who sent their entry earliest AND/OR who has made the least # of changes ... Oh well, too late?*)

    2. If we found out later before the deadline that if certain band(s) are officially confirmed, from what I understand in your rules, you are going to add those band(s) in your restricted list?

    a. Those who have not sent their entries are disallowed to include them in their list.

    b. The ones who submitted their entries early with those band(s) on their lists are allowed to keep them AND they will get points if those band(s) are included in the official lineup.

    I have a feeling that a major headliner leak will happen this week.
