    What if.....What if the original headliner was not Bowie, u2, The Who, AC/DC, the Beastie boys or any other artist you would normaly think of? What if.....what if it were a Hip-Hop artist all along, that GV was courting to headline. What if GV asked Dr. Dre to headline and also bring along all of his gangsta rappers to close out the main stage on Fri? What if GV was originaly intending to have a hip-hop artist headline? I don't think that's too far fetched. Dr. Dre probably turned GV down because he doesn't want to perform for a bunch of White people or rather....."CRACKERS"....."HONKIES"....."WHI-GGERS"...Think about that. Proove me wrong. ANything is possible when it comes to Coachella.

    Jay Z is a simple marketing ploy, just like Madonna and Kanye were, except this time the masses will be forced to buy a three day pass regardless if they show for the following days.

    Thom Yorke on Sunday will leave radiohead fans scrambling to find a Sunday ticket the day of but with the way things are these days GV will be lucky if one day is even close to selling out.

    Saturday intentionally blows for the sake of day one and three but I still want to hear Beach House live.

    now fuck off

    We were going to play at Coachella, the New Orleans Jazz festival, we had all kinds of things planned, so I persuaded Roger we should do the Super Bowl to kick those events off. And then decided that I couldn't do that work later this year because I felt I had to continue to write. So this must have been on the cards for quite a long time, but I think we made a final decision to go ahead in October or something like that.

    If this happens, maybe they still get Jay-Z but he doesn't headline.
    see you in '12

    No. But I don't think it is crazy to think that they could have been a subheadliner.

    Perhaps. I think it's more crazy/sad that the three headliners could/would have been Jay-Z, Muse, and The Who.

    Gorillaz have been signed on since December, so have Muse. I was told by someone extremely reliable, but I can't say who or else I might be in trouble.

    From what I have heard too... The Who had signed on early as well. Then dropped out. Then they made a HUGE push for Bowie, and he almost said yes, but eventually decided not to. So they got Jay-Z.

    I will accept The Who stating they were going to play Coachella as the best response to this thread yet.

    I think that, if The Who were going to play, it makes the most sense that they would have headlined. Also, considering that Muse and Gorillaz have supposedly been known for some time, it would then make sense that they were meant to be the 3rd headliner and Jay-Z was selected after them.
    I suppose, again assuming that The Who really were supposed to play and headline, the next most likely scenario would possibly be Muse originally slated to open for The Who?

    That's why I said "interesting" instead of claiming to have discovered the truth. Obviously any of the three could have been the "replacement" but given recent history and a little common sense, Mr. Carter is certainly the favorite. But it's moot at this point.

    Regardless, I'm not convinced that it was a straight-up switch, one for the other. The Who would obviously cost a ton more than any of the other headliners and redistributing the money saved may be why the lineup is so ridiculously good in the middle. And if that's the case:

    mega headliner <<<<< entertaining headliner & stacked undercard

    Where do you go for all of this inside conjecture, Josh? Don't worry, you won't get in any trouble.

    He won't really get "in trouble," but the person who told him will get pretty pissed and most likely not provide any more information.

    With this recent information coming to light, yeah, I concur.

    But it could have done without the cliche Bowie rumor, Mr. Patton

    People take comfort in the idea that Goldenvoice tries for Bowie every year. Just like they will next year.

    Well, I mean, I feel like I posited a question, it spurned some discussion and thought, and ultimately, a plausible conclusion was reached.

    It always kind of seemed from the onset of this thread, though, that you thought it was completely unthinkable that Jay-Z wasn't supposed to headline. That people were morons for thinking so. At least that's what I gathered from your posts. So were you proven wrong or did this just clear up the question for you (i.e. it provided a plausible scenario for which Jay-Z was not intended to be the headliner)?

    No boarder, I was being sarcastic because MJA hadn't spoken up yet. The fact that The Who straight up came out and said they were going to play just clinched the entire prove it or fuck off theory. Kudos.

    Maybe you reached a conclusion, but this is shit that we knew about as soon as the lineup was released. In fact, I'll take it a step further as say that they are still going to add a possible headliner.

    If Dre was asked preform, he would not turn it down because he does not wanna preform in front of white people. If he did turn down the headlining spot, it would probably be because of Detox drama.

    God you people are so dumb.

    What Malc was complaining about with this thread was the completely baseless assumption that Jay-Z wasn't an original headliner. Has nothing to do with his personal feelings about it--just that it's fucking annoying on this board to watch people spout complete conjecture as if it's somehow perfectly logical just because they don't like so-and-so.

    Now there's some actual evidence. Thread mostly resolved. Douchebags.

    But people were right, even before the proof came in. Which means that the claims were not baseless.

    I don't think you understand what "baseless" means. If you guess something with no evidence it's baseless regardless of whether or not it turns out to be true.
