Even adding Teddybears would have been a huge add for me . . . *sigh* I guess New Jersey will get all the A-list acts, and we are stuck with the B-list (in some cases C-list - the BREEDERS??) Ok, done ranting . . .
    Is it about value then? I've gone all years since 2001 and I can't say I've seen too many headliners. It's about discovering new music, listening to music you know, etc. I don't get seeing the headliners anyways, unless you are in the middle of a bizillion pushing fans, half of which have some chick on their shoulders so you can't see shite, with crappy sound, etc. If I'm going to go see a headliner, I'll usually just go to their show when it comes around.

    I don't get what New Jersey has to do with Coachella anyways? Do you think they are taking away bands to save for that show? What would be the motivation to do that??? It makes no business sense.

    they are competing with themselves by creating a new festival.
    we are the spoiled 9 yr old who just found out mommy and daddy are having a baby and baby gets all the attention while we get pushed aside.
    Damn right there saving the good stuff.

    Hell yes, it makes sense. Coachella is an established music festival. Tens of thousands of people are going to go every year (even this year...) regardless of who plays.

    But now that there is a festival starting up in NYC...you gotta pull out the big guns for that. They want to be on the map after year ONE of that festival, not take several years to build up like Coachella did. Why blow your load on Coachella when you need to make a splash in the Big Apple? This lineup wouldn't fly for a first time fest in NYC, but it's still going to be OK for Coachella.
    That's why Jerseychella is going to get Radiohead and god (or Paul T) only knows who else. It's going to be a ridiculous lineup for that festival, though. I'm jealous already.

    Portishead is fine, but Jack Johnson? I heard that the Jerseychella is much smaller and might only be one day, but I bet the line-up is a whole lot better. Can anyone tell me where I can score some heroin for Coachella? Also, some uppers, downers, qualoods, & other god awfull drugs? Why? I need something to make the shows much more interesting. Can I get an A-MEN!?!?
