    Good call - can you imagine?!?! I am guessing that they knew there was no great need for a presale (i.e., I seriously doubt a major stampede come Friday), but it hadn't even occurred what it would have been like if they'd had a presale. I'm pissed now..I would have gone mental had I parted company with money for this line-up.

    I voted thumbs down, but the more I look at the lineup the more I realize it's not all that bad. My main reason for the thumbs down is that there are too many bands repeating this year. I still think it's going to be a great 3 days.

    Jack Johnson headlining on Friday is weak. However, I won't have to worry about conflicts of missing other great bands (like I did with Bjork in missing Gogol Bordello & Evil Nine). My only hope is that they add on a bigger Sahara act to close out Friday, such as Underworld or the Chemical Brothers. I think it will be great to see, Sharon Jones, Fatboy Slim, Cut Copy, Pendulum, Modeselektor, Diplo, Datarock & Aesop Rock.

    Saturday looks to be the big winner right now. I much more excited to see Portishead & Kraftwerk, than I was in seeing RHCP & Tiesto last year. plus the mid day looks pretty tight. NYPC, Bonde Do Role, Stephen Malkmus, Boyze Noise, Erol Alken etc.

    Sunday, looks pretty thin right now, but it has great potential. Sure Roger Waters has toured doing Dark Side of the Moon a lot over the past couple of years. I didn't take the chance to see it though and I'm sure they will make this performance much more special than his previous shows. It's a good way to end the weekend. I can still see Goldfrapp or Underworld sneaking in on that second line though. we'll see. I'd still be happy watching the Dark Side of the Moon performance, as well as getting another chance to see Gogol Bordello. Spirtualized, Metric, Simian Mobile Disco, Booka Shade, Deadmau5, also make for a good day.

    Here's to learning about some other great acts on the list that I have no clue about right now.

    i've been waiting more than a decade to see portishead. i hope they play some other shows over here cause' i won't be going this year. outside of a handful of acts (verve, spiritulized, the streets, kraftwerk) the lineup is weak. jack johnson?? wtf?? so disappointed My Bloody Valentine is not there, that would have sold me. maybe next year.

    I don't know about thumbs but I'll give a middle finger to Jack Johnson for taking a spot he doesn't deserve.

    Okay, I have found that every other year is epic. This is an off year. It's always the case! I wasn't that suprised with an off line up. It's an other year. Portishead is okay. I'll go Saturday. That will give the psychadelic drug users an extra ticket for Sunday! Have fun guys! Those were the days....

    I saw them open for Depeche Mode in the 90's TRUST ME you're not missing anything amazing...Just drop some E about an hour before they go on...That should do the trick...

    Default Coachella '07 VS. '08...

    Ok so I understand that last year's lineup is very tough to top but they could have at least made a slightly more valiant effort to contend with it! I mean, at the top of last year's poster was Rage Against The Machine...I (along with a good majority of Coachella goers) was literally almost shitting my pants the first time I read it! This year the first name that was so tragically presented was Jack Johnson!!??? To put it simply, this year's lineup is altogether incomprable with last year's. With the magnitude of Coachella 2007's headliners I was not expecting 2008's to surpass but I was hoping for some comparison. Roger Water's name does not hold the same luster as if Pink Floyd was in it's place. Granted any hopes of that have been inevitably thrown out the window but the I believe the spectrum of equally respectable and notable alternatives is quite a bit wider than seems to have been considered. I can really see ticket sales plummeting with regards to 2007 based on seasoned music enthusiests' expectations.

    Fuck Jack Johnson's gay ass. Fuck Portisheads whiny lounge act that got booted out of Vegas so we added a cool beat under your breathy ass. Fuck the fossil that is playing Sunday. This year is so much bull shit!

    I kinda agree with boyalien0

    I mean I do like Portishead, but I woudn't have thought they'd headline
    Maybe I'm not a big follower so I don't know how big they stand as of now
    any chance radiohead will be added and steal the headlining spot? (please dont take that seriously)
    and i have to admit (takes a deep breath)
    i do kinda sorta in a weird way enjoy jack johnson's music

    :X

    i mean upside down and sitting, waiting wishing are pretty catchy, and even though i wouldn't watch his entire set, i might catch a bit of it

    and roger waters is definately a plus
    sure he's some "washed up guy from pink floyd trying to make money and limelight by playing his old band''s album" or he's "living in the past"
    but i know a handful of people who went to his show in Irvine, CA and LA and I heard nothing but awsome reviews

    other than the fact that he protested against Bush for 30 min or so
    but eh darkside is totally worth it

    Recent polls show a fifth of Americans can't locate good music at a music store. Why do you think this is?

    I personally believe that US Americans are unable to do so because, uh, some people out there in our nation don't have good music, and I believe that our choices, like such as Jack Johnson and the MTV, everywhere like such as, and I believe that they should -- our music over here in the US should help the US -- or should help South Africa and should help the Iraq and the Asian countries, so we will be able to build up our future for our children.
