    What a rip!!!!!!!!!! The Breeders should headline Friday or at least the Verve....anybody but that monkey looking Jack Johnson. I am realy going to have to hook up on some Heroin. That way even shit will look good to me!!!
    Hey Golden Voice!......Can you guys hook me up with the same heroin you guys were on while comming up with this BULSHIT?

    There are a handful of decent bands/acts playing, but you can catch them at seperate more intimate shows for cheap.
    Goldenvoice, Pasqual, whoever is running things this year: YOU FUCKED UP!
    TICKET PRICES ARE NOT WORTH ATTENDING THIS YEAR!!!!

    Weak sauce. What happened to Radiohead or My Bloody Valentine?

    Sincerley,

    Very dissappointed Coachellagoer.
    could not agree more, this is a sad sad day, not worth the trip and money for it, no freaking way, I'm so fucking bummed this is beyond shit...

    It's hard to form an opinion when I haven't even heard of 80% of the lineup. Where is The Go Team!?

    I must admit that when I heard Paul Tollett state that Johnson was headlining on Friday I just did not believe it, I had to see it on paper. When I finally saw it on paper it felt like I was getting a braceface blowjob... Jack fucking Johnson man, Jack motherfucking Johnson.

    ThomThom I love your icon. That was a fun interview. :P

    Portishead/Waters was pretty much established as of last night, I figured they'd have a strong third headliner since those two are sort of weak.

    Oh, how very, very wrong I was.

    I bet Jack Johnson will be at Bonnaroo as a non-headliner act.

    The way I see it, they're about equal to last years headliners. Jack Johnson and RHCP both cater to the chillout California crowd, Bjork and Portishead are both weird, downtempo electronic acts, and Roger Waters and RATM both have a pretty solid repertoire, alot of history, and an expansive fanbase.

    That being said, the headliners in both years are substandard. I'm actually a bit more pissed off that 1) the second tier is so weak (Love and Rockets? Death Cab? C'mon...) and that 2) the only band that I would pay to see on Friday is Fatboy Slim, and that's really saying something.

    I wish I had four hands...so I could give this lineup four thumbs down. Besides Gogol Bordello, Justice, Roger Waters and one or two others, this is a big disappointment for a three-time vet!

    With the exception of maybe 6 bands, I'm a bit disappointed with the line-up. Not sure if I can justify going in to serious debt to go this year.

    I like Portishead, but Massive Attack were and are bigger than Portishead, and even Massive Attack didn't headline.

    I've said all I care to say about Jack Johnson. I withstood enough Pink Floyd laser shows in high school to exhaust any desire to see/hear Dark Side of the Moon.

    Finally someone who knows what time it is!!!

    I totally wet myself lastnight cause I was sooo stoked about the line up!!! I can't believe all of these selfish and disapointed statements that are going off in here...

    Yayyyy my 5th year and I'm sooo appreciative for th opportunity...

    I'm okay that I dislike two headliners...This will give me a better chance to walk the track and try out some new artists...This is a blessing in disguise...

    I felt like someone punched me in the stomach when I saw the headliners. There's a lot of smaller bands that I am excited to see; Vampire Weekend, Aesop Rock, Cold War Kids, M.I.A., Stephen Malkmus, etc., but this is definitely the worst headliners I've seen at ANY big music festival. Who the hell thought that Roger Waters was a good choice to close the festival? "Dark Side of the Moon?," does that mean he's going to play that album in it's entirety? Sounds awful. Jack Johnson? Really?!...Really? At least I know I'll be beating traffic and getting a better night's sleep than in year's past. Wish I would have waited before getting a hotel. Anyone know of anything else going on in Indio that weekend? Two thumbs (and a sad hanging head) down.

    Thumbs Down!

    Yeah personally my sentiments exactly, I need to find my RH fix.
    As soon as I know where and when.. then will decide on Coachella!

    Even though we all agree the headliners are not strong or even worthy, all the indie bands performing will make it an awesome fun experience!

    Cheers


    P.S. Wish I had enough money to spare and not worry on budgeting this years weak lineup, must admit the festival experience by itself is worth it, but it does make you think twice now that we know the lineup.
