    Default Just an idea: Voting for artists / headliners 2010

    I personally felt that this years lineup wasn't that bad and I knew I was going all 3 days right when I saw it, but by visiting the message boards countless times a day I couldn't help but missing the "Killers dont deserve to be a headliner" threads, and the "Sahara sucks this year" also all the rumors on how sales were horrible this year ( I dont think anyone can actually confirm how well it went [only Golden Voice] ) so overall I assume that a majority of repetitive coachella-go'ers were somewhat dissapointed with the line up.
    I know that the "We the People" festival (very shitty festival in my opinion but have SOMEWHAT solid lineups for the ticket price) which is held in L.A. every year is hosting online voting polls for fans to select who they want to see this year. (http://wtp.uservoice.com/pages/general)
    I think having some form of a voting poll for us wouldn't be that bad of an idea, and I also think it would help ticket sales.
    I know Golden Voice is very creative on their own and I know they have smart ticket sales speculations when the lineup is announced, and I know that not every artist wants to play Coachella (ex. David Bowie) but I feel this may help out GV a little bit and continue Coachella's legacy.

    Judging by the massive crowds on all three days- in particular the clusterfuck of people walking around the sahara/mojave area saturday night, I'd say ticket sales were pretty damn good this year

    Well... ATP does do a thing where they let fans pick the bands... I don't know, I think you could be bargaining for a fucking disaster here. I mean, you'd have to open it to the general public, and we'd end up with Slightly Stoopid and Pepper being booked for the festival. Or worse. Hmmm...

    i agree, i think if it was freely operated blink 182 would have headlined (thank god they didnt) but i would leav it up to GV to work it out and do what they do best

    But that's a contradiction, dude. You want to leave it up to GV to do what they do best but you're basically criticizing their headliner choice(s) by asking for a direct say in who gets booked.

    Saturday had to have sold out. That day was packed more than Friday. Not just around the Sahara, around the main stage too, at the same time. There's no way it didn't sell out. I bet a lot of people bought tickets on the day of the show.
    Ron Paul 2012!

    Upcoming Shows:
    Four Tet
    Coachella 4/20-4/22
    Death Cab for Cutie/Magik Magik Orchestra
    Radiohead
    some other bands

    I'm guessing a lot of Fridays crowd ie. the older McCartney fans didn't show up till later.

    Here's mine:
    1st off, Oingo Boingo has to do a reunion... I know this would draw a huge west coast somewhat older crowd, but it has to happen!
    2nd: Beastie Boys, Pearl Jam, Red Hot Chili Peppers-would be my headliner favs
    3rd: Repeats: Radiohead (I missed them in 04?!) Tool--always amazing, Beck--so cool
    3rd: Not headliners but should play next year: Santigold, Roots Manuva, Neko Case, Amon Tobin, Muse, M83, Ryan Adams (is that enough variety?)

    This isn't a democracy, it's a dictatorship, a sweet, lovely dictatorship.

    I would rather GV surprise us like they always do.

    This idea, while good in theory, just screams disaster in practice.

    I mostly agree with your choices for lineups..they're WAY better than what i've seen advertised so far. If it was up to me?.. Uriah Heep, Yes, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Ted Nugent, Loverboy, Foghat, Kiss, Flock of Seagulls, Led Zeppelin reunion, Journey, Reo Speedwagon, Dokken, Van Halen... WHATEVER HAPPENED TO ALL THESE GOOD BANDS? Too many youngsters that like to smash into eachother, i guess.
