    Question So what happened with Neil Young?

    He was so heavily rumored and, well, obviously he isn't on the lineup. Or any other lineup, for that matter.
    8/20 SISU and Tanlines @ Sayers Club, 8/21 The Zombies @ Santa Monica Pier, 8/23-24 FYF Fest, 9/10 Swans @ Roxy, 9/18 Neutral Milk Hotel & Daniel Johnston @ Hollywood Bowl, 9/19 Tokimonsta @ El Rey, 9/30 Cibo Matto @ the Roxy, 10/3-4 Desert Stars, 10/9 Zola Jesus @ El Rey, 10/16 Massive Attack @ Greek Theater, 10/22-25 CMJ, 10/26 Asobi Seksu & Slowdive @ Royale

    Yeah, they can, but they'll never ever play Coachella. And Neil Young was apparently not supposed to be a headliner, anyway.

    See the trouble was that Neil would only play if Radiohead were there and when they said no he said "fuck this shit! I am going to write an album about ecofriendly cars!".

    Yeah I think Paul T realized that all Neil wanted to sing about was cars, so he said fuck it.

    Hey is another theory...Brandon Flowers made a stink about Neil headlining but then Paul T said "No, its cool. Bono will bump you guys down just chill".

    well...I don't think the Killers will mind opening for U2 considering they are headlining a mess of festivals in Europa.

    NY: hahahahaha ::hangs up::

    U2 are just so difficult to work with for festival organisers. Glastonbury tried for years to get U2-the only sticking point was U2 did not want their set to appear live on TV or radio because they like to own all the rights and have the final edit on the pictures and sound. They like to make sure they look good!

    Yes, the difficulty would explain all the delays with releasing the lineup last month.
