    Please do this survey. No matter how you feel. I implore you to make an opinion on the subject, even if you struggle to define your's, and express it in this poll. As soon as possible please.

    In the words of almighty Puff Daddy: VOTE OR DIE.



    The more votes I get here the better!

    (Hypothetically, for this poll, you are alone and the opinions/tastes of those you might otherwise be with do not influence your choices in the matter)

    Option 3. I really love When You Were Young (no shame), but just about every other song is pretty lame.

    I'm sure there'd be something else better to see, but on the slight chance that I'm wrong I'd be someplace far where I could sit and still see a screen.
    Coachella is bigger than all holidays combined. Why the hell would I leave early?

    Yes, I would watch this. I am a fan of the Killers. But I would rather have them as sub-headliners.

    I hope they arent there, and if they are there, I would watch someone else, but if everyone in the other tents were crappy, id watch The Killers....it would suck though.

    I really shouldn't have left out the "leave early" option, it sounds waaaay harsh.

    Well, for those that read this, I hereby change Option #3 to "I have no or almost no interest in seeing The Killers playing Coachella."

    Sounds more inviting, don't it?

    I would never leave early just because the Killers were playing. I'd be in the Sahara or the Do Lab.

    No reason to leave just because the Killers are there...

    If the Killers were in the same position that prince had with nobody against them... I would leave early.

    But knowing GV they would probably understand that alot of people would not want the killers, so would allow more options. Kinda like JJ this year.

    I AGREE

    that's why I changed it.

    Please all take note
    You do not have to leave early.
    I understand that's completely insane, being that it's Coachella.

    But, if you do not care at all for the Killers, please still vote #3.

    You're up to four. I think their first album is decent, but nothing has done it for me since. Personally, I think that people are forgetting the point of the headliner, which is to drive ticket sales. Like it or not, people like them and buy their albums, and I could see them filling the Friday spot, which has not impressed me either year, so far.

    They wouldn't be booked for the Saturday or Sunday headlining slots, which should be filled by much larger names.

    I don't think it's insane. If The Killers are headlining, and nothing else is good, sure, I would leave early. Parking is a bitch at this festival, I would rather avoid being stuck for an hour or more than watch a shitty band play mostly shitty songs.

    If no one I'm interested in seeing is playing, I'll leave. Nothing wrong with taking off early to have a few drinks and hit the sack early for the next day.

    I chose the 2nd option. I enjoy the Killers. Knowing Coachella, there'll probably be someone better playing at the same time, but if not, i would rather watch the Killers than leave early.

    Alright, out of 60 votes:
    5 would see them
    15 might see them if there is nothing better
    40 would under no circumstance see them

    So if there is 60,000 people (According to statistics) only 5,000 will for sure be there, and I would add another 10K from the second option just to be safe. That is a ridiculously low number of people for a headliner...

    Note though, this is all based on the opinion of this board. The opinion of the general Coachella public is probably different, and there is also the factor of people who would not normally attend but just love the killers...

    those number sound about right for jack johnson this past year

    seriously, the crowd watching him was less than 15,000 for sure. to be perfectly honest, if you think about how the crowd is shaped like a semi-circle, and take itno account how each 25 feet of crowd depth represents a smaller number the closer to the stage you get, I'd estimate that there were a maximum of 10,000 watching him. it was embarassingly small. the verve, gogol bordello, my morning jacket, all had bigger crowds than jack johnson

    My thoughts exactly.

    Salah, that video convinced me that almost ANYONE would be a better option. I would run for cover in the tents.

    they will probably have a JJ sized crowd, probably a little bigger.

    7/24 Stephen Malkmus/Entrance Band @ Henry Miller Library
    8/8 Underworld @ Hard Summer (maybe)
    8/28-30 Beastie Boys/Ween/Modest Mouse @ Outside Lands Festival
