    Are you all forgetting that Jack Johnson has played Coachella TWICE before, in 2002 and 2003? I don't understand how bumping his name up another row and in bigger print is going to "kill" the festival. There's 123 other bands on the lineup. Good God.

    Coachella is about variety. I guess this year, it wasn't your favorite band on top but that doesn't make Coachella anywhere near "dying".

    I question your validity sometimes. Half of those acts are not even pitchfork-infused "indie" bands that you proclaim. I call bs on your part.

    One crappy headliner won't ruin a festival which is best because of the smaller indie acts and reunion acts. Portishead and The Verve both haven't played the U.S. for somewhere around a decade. And regarding indie acts, if you think the lineup sucks, you really shouldn't be going to Coachella.

    Well this will be the first Coachella EVER that I'm passing up and i've attened them all faithfully and eagerly year in and year out.

    Some decent acts but honestly, there is no one that I really MUST SEE.

    seeing The Verve might be nice I suppose Madness too and L&R but none of those inspire me to do anything but wait to see if they play any warm up gigs.

    you all need to remember what this fest was based on. music and art. it has always been in support of the indie acts and such even though a lot of them may not be as well. i am looking forward to hearing new acts as well as expierencing the Dark Side of the Desert!

    I'm getting sick of this statement.

    What does one festival have to do with another? Nothing. I'd agree with you if they were happening the same weekend, BUT THEY ARE NOT COMPETING.

    Ok I've looked and read this before posting (for those who know me, that is unusual).
    I think The Verve, Portishead, Gogol Bordello, Simian Mobile Disco, Mark Ronson, The Horrors, MIA, Justice and FatBoy Slim might just make it not as much of a fucking disaster as some think it appears (at first).
    Its not perfect, nothing is. I think for me anyway it will be a good chance to check out the more unfamiliar bands.
    See you there.

    Coachella's not dead...it's just pretty obvious they tried to reunite big original groups as headliners and couldn't do it.

    Instead of Pink Floyd we have Roger Waters
    Instead of Bauhaus we have Love and Rockets
    Couldn't even get The White Stripes together...ha!

    And what's up with this major focus on Euro groups? And where's the multi-ethnic diversity in the line-up??? Is this festival NOT based in SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA!?!?!?!?

    There are at least 45 bands I currently want to see. That's about the same as in previous years. If you're completely discounting this lineup, you don't listen to enough music.
