    Default Make a Coachella Lineup Poster In Retrospect Game

    To tide some of you over between now and the impending lineup release, I thought of a new game. Coachella has evolved a lot since it began over a decade ago, but what do you think the poster would look like if the festival had been as popular as it is now back in the day?

    Here's the simple rules of the game:

    - Make a poster or text-based lineup from a year Coachella did not exist, but as if it were the hugest festival around (bigger even than the 90's version of the traveling Lollapalooza or Woodstock '94!)
    - You can only use reunions from year's a band actually did reunite during that year
    - You can only use bands who were around in the year of your choice

    I haven't got mine figured out, yet, but wanted to get the wheels turning for anyone who wants to participate!

    Ooooh cool. I don't have enough patience right now to do this, but I'd like to see some other people's work!

    That would be such an epic lineup in 1994. Even Weezer would have been good then. Of course, I would have been 10, so there's no way I could appreciate it. Oh well.

    Also, on a trip to Indonesia - completely coincidentally - I finally found out what "menikmati" means.

    Coachella 1989, with Macca kicking off his big 1989/1990 world tour on the polo fields, followed by some new wave and a bunch of those little grungy pacific northwest bands that were getting all the news in the various zines.

    1979 or 1980 could be really fun, too:

    Possible headliners would probably have been:
    Van Halen (supporting Van Halen II)
    Pink Floyd (supporting "The Wall")
    Led Zeppelin (last tour before Bonham died, towards the end of their BIGGEST BAND ON EARTH status)
    David Bowie
    Queen

    Undercard:
    Joy Division (final tour)
    Dead Kennedys
    Minor Threat (not that they would tour to California with no album support)
    Bad Brains (the same)
    Michael Jackson (supporting Off the Wall)
    Ultravox
    Devo (sophomore album)
    Neil Young (first tour with Crazy Horse, I think)
    Can (last tour before they kinda unraveled)
    John Lennon with Yoko
    The Ramones

    Sahara might be tougher:
    Kraftwerk
    Tangerine Dream
    *based upon tedious fact checking.

    Yeah prior to the mid 80's Chicago house scene and Detroit techno scene, the Sahara would be tough. I'm sure it's possible to come up with a list of names, but yeah Kraftwerk and Tangerine Dream would be the only two I could come up with. And 1981 would seem to be a prime year for Kraftwerk, since they were on a world tour that year I think.

    Great posters Erik, but in 1989 The Go! Team were still at Junior School. The band didn't start until 2000 and didn't play live until about 4 years after that. Get some Tackhead on there instead.

    No no, I'm talking the Go Team from the late 80's with Toby Vail and Calvin Johnson.
