OK PEOPLE, LISTEN UP!
Scooper did this last year, and here are the results :
So, I don't know why some boardmembers are so bitchy about this thread.
Here's the link to last years thread.
um, because that was edited on Jan 21st at 9pm.
the line up had already been announced
No. I was here way before that. He had a bigger list than that at first. And he DID change names after the line up came out.
But what we don't get is how, normally in the first thread, names that he has "heaviliy rumored" are names that haven't even been spoken of around these parts for a couple of months. What we don't get are where these names are coming from.
What I want to know is what separates his list from a fake lineup.
Maybe because last years was based on all the credible info outlined in last years thread where this year it says zero about myspace, latimes blogs, the bands themselves or the tour schedules.
I would say that's a pretty big difference between this year and last year. If it's the same then he can simply say so as he did last year. Instead this year we have two threads with little explanation as to why some bands are on and some are off the list.

Does it offend you yeah?
These bands below were mentioned in a la times blog by a very credible source so it does have some cred so here are those bands:
below these are bands who are touring and will be around the west coast within a few weeks of the festival and have open dates with nothing in So Cal scheduled:
Les savy fav
Sun kil moon
finally these are bands that are touring. one point is they have no dates conflicting with coachella but the second point is there are no west coast dates in april, just a opening so these are more doubtful but possible. Also listed are artists who are coachella material who have albums coming out:
Super furry animals
Queens of the stone age
White light riot
Broken social scene
Clap you hands say yeah
G love and special sauce
Robert Randolph and the Family Band
The Black Mollys
The Mars Volta
Band of Horses
Coheed and Cambria
also check these sites out for other rumours, updates, and info!
if u have any info on artists we can add, just let me know.
it is B.S. that scoop takes bands off and puts some on and takes some of and puts some on and never gives any reasoning behind these moves, its like his wish list or somethin, give us some sources for christ's sake!
i can name at least three bands on his list that he added just because i said they were playing... and even one that has said they are NOT playing...
BOTTOM LINE: IF YOUR ONLY REAL SOURCE IS THIS MESSAGE BOARD (or bloggers whose only source is this board), THEN YOU DON'T KNOW SHIT!!!!!!
it was updated after the announcement was made and we went through the list to see how well we ALL DID!! all of us contributed to that list.....
the list is not over. its gonna get trimmed and then we will see how we do.....
roger waters got us all by surprise.....
honestly its the 10th year anniversary, im just speculating but i am expecting nothing less than epic headliners like radiohead or Daft Punk. i really believe that this year will be one of the best.
and does anyone have any info if Ben Folds would potentially play?
that would make me very happy
ok here is where alot of you are misguided:
1. sources: no one really cares who my sources are... the sources are you, myself, goldenvoice, friends in the biz, rumors, etc,etc,etc...
2. the list: honestly, do your own homework if you dont like the list.. its real simple. this is here for information purposes only.. you dont have to agree and if im right, so what? if im wrong, so what? it doesnt matter.........
3. i put this together because there a zillion things that are rumored so i try to put it under 1 thread so its easier for people to see who MIGHT BE PLAYING. notihng is ever ever ever confirmed until the lineup from paul comes out!!
4. if the message board was my only source, id take it...... there are some amazing music minded people in here and they love music as much as i do so dont cut down my brothers and sisters in here fucker! from paulb, to sbessiso to sacleaonard to teamcoach to massivechemicalpunk, we are all here cuz we love to talk music.
so if you dont like it, thats fine, just dont get all fucking mighty with your talk. either join the club or fuck off! AMEN!!
i have one problem with that, and thats the sources, i think everyone on here does care who and where the sources are coming from, thats what makes the information believable, so if every band had a source we could more or less do our own confirming of bands based on the source, i think a majority of the bands listed arent from credible sources like lurkers coming on here just posting in this thread
hey scooper, who at gv is your source? I'd love to let paul t know.
She added the phrase "meany head" to my profile.I hardly think I'm an attention whore.
Ugh... If I had a dime for every person who asks " IS RADIOHEAD GOING TO BE THERE??!?!"
