    I really wish the line up was irresistable, alas the only thing special about this line up is the festival aspect of it. Otherwise, I could just go to a couple of Massives and the Album tours of the (sub)headliners and be more than satisfied (with more money for more shows in the future).

    I'm very disappointed / completely underwhelmed by the lineup (overall). There are still many acts that I want and would see with that lineup but it could/would/should had been much better than that (or vs. 2006 & 2007 lineups). I thought for sure at least Goldfrapp and PJ Harvey (fuck you Sirius if she is not going to be added later ) are locks of making in the lineup. Jack Johnson, My Morning Jacket, DCFC being so high high and huge in the poster make me cringe.

    If I live in California (or just within 350 miles from Polo Fields), I'll be there every year.

    I wish I went with my original plans of not going. I'm screwed by booking my flight before the announcement. *Now I'm not sure if I can go to some European festivals with me going to this*

    If I can find a way to cancel my flight reservations without being charged of $$$ fees I will probably not go. But then I don't know if I will get the chance again to see Kraftwerk, Portishead, The Verve and Spiritualized anywhere live.

    I'm definitely going to All Points West / East Coachella and/or Vineland festival(s) (i.e, if they are going to happen on the same weekend).

    Maybe i just have bad taste, but i look at it this way. Yes, i'm a little bit shocked at the undercard heavy lineup, but over the 3 days there are 55 bands i want to see, 60 i'm not familiar with and only 13 i have no interest in. I see this as a fairly good return. Plus once all these new bands go huge, you'll fondly remember seeing them in the gobi back in the day, or curse the fact that you didn't take a risk. Your choice, people.

    Highly doubtful… I’m considering spending my money on upgrading to a 50” lcd instead.

    i am only going if it doesnt sell out and there is tons of tickets on craigslist for $40 (like friday last year).... i figure sunday will sell out though (but ive seen the roger waters act already so it wouldnt be anything special now)... saves me money to go see MBV another 2 nights at the roundhouse...

    VOODOO FEST in new orleans halloween weekend was awesome... last year the smashing pumpkins and rage headlined... also tiesto! and because i live in texas, i go to
    AUSTIN CITY LIMITS who last year had bjork, bob dylan and muse headlining. it was supposed to be the white stripes instead of muse but someone was hospitalized or something but muse was awesome. bjork though.. no words can describe.
    this year im also looking at...

    BONNAROO in manchester, tennessee
    VIRGIN MOBILE festival in baltimore, md
    SASQUACH in washington
    and some smaller ones such as
    WAKARUSA in lawrence, kansas
    and
    TREASURE ISLAND festival in san fran, cali

    I have been to Coachella seven times now and this is the first one I am thinking of not going to (I can't believe I am typing this). Like others, I am going to wait and see what lineups other festivals come up with before making any major decision.

    Most likely though, I will go to at least one day so I voted for the partial choice. Especially since you don't really get too much of a break for buying a three day pass. 180 for two days is more reasonable.

    This might be completely unfounded, but does it seem like Goldenvoice is just using the revenue they get from Coachella to fund other festival ventures? This is the first year i have ever seen where it seems like a lot of the money isn't put back into Coachella itself, with much of it going to All Points West and Stagecoach. It might not be true, but it certainly seems true at the moment...

    This is the best way to look at it. I may have been dismayed with the line-up at first, but I'm definitely going. I hope to see you all there.

    I was thinking about going but I haven't heard of like 90% of the bands on the lineup. Maybe if I give them all a listen and like what I hear I will go. I'm thinking that I will either attend Bonnaroo or All Points West, maybe both but it really depends on the lineups.

    I actually really like this lineup. But since we are about to book our tickets and book the moving company, for our move to California, I don't think Coachella is possible...money wise..moving across the country is expensive enough....I'm fuckin bummed out!
