    Default If Green Day headlines a festival this year...

    ...Does anyone else think it will be between Bonnaroo or Lollapalooza? I've read a lot of people speculating they might be a Coachella headliner due to their new album, but the latter two festivals seem more probable.

    Coachella and Lolla are the two most likely not Bonnaroo.

    If they headlined Coachella that would be the most disappointing thing ever.

    I'd prefer they not headline Coachella. I think Lollapalooza is a better fit for them.

    Whatever. I dont want them to headline Coachella but when I saw them in 05, I was massively blown away. To this day it still remains one of my top shows, Billy Joe and the boys sure know how to have fun. They sounded incredible, gave us a perfect setlist of classic, new and cover songs and really were genuinely having a great time on stage. That kind of positive energy really radiates and the crowd picks up on that

    No. What gives you the idea that they would play Bonnaroo? They would get bottled there. Friday at Coachella is fine, otherwise no thanks.

    Wow, I couldn't disagree more. I would love to hear Good Riddance on the polo fields.

    Yeah I would be ok with Green Day headlined Coachella. I probably would not watch them but I know a lot of there songs. I saw them in Irvine like 6 years ago and it was good.

    If any festival, it'd be Lolla, but I doubt they'll play any of them. Green Day playing wouldn't be as bad as the crowd it would bring. Thousands and thousands of middle schoolers flooding the Polo Fields from Hot Topic.

    Middle schoolers can't get parental permission to attend, so it would be Emptychella.

    Dookie > 95% of the music to come from the 90's. Sorry, it's true. but I could definitely do without anything after.

    You don't think Bonnaroo is a possibility? I sure do, especially in recent years since they've put the likes of Metallica, Kanye, and the White Stripes up as headliners. Isn't MTV vested in Bonnaroo as a sponser or something, too, nowadays? Green Day is very much an MTV-ready band, which is why I feel like that festival will be moving more towards hugely popular alternative arena acts in the coming years.

    Anyway, I'm not advocating a Green Day headlining spot at Coachella at all. If you ask me, the poster for Friday is more likely to say "No Doubt" as headliners with Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Yo La Tengo underneath as subheadliners.
