    Alright fuck it I'm not tweaking the kerning for another week. I'm letting this thing go before it consumes my life any longer. My last submission was it, for better or worse.

    They played Coachella in 2001. Early afternoon in the blazing sun. It was quite hilarious. Also the live horns were lovely.

    Yeah, I really wanted to do this also, Rage. The actual poster design was easy, but with all the years I've experienced music in my life, I never got as nerded out over all the facts and details as many of your have. Christ, I spent almost 6 hours one night looking shit up, and managed to even get sidetracked by a few links to favorite bands and imfo I didn't know, and then totally spacing out on any further poster work. I wanted to do the year, 1981and actually have what I consider the start to a lineup, but I got held up trying to learn about newly discovered bands at the time. Unfortunately, because I spent all those years enjoying the music instead of over analyzing it, I would probably need until Febuary of next year before I could turn one in that met all the detailed criteria you guys seem so expert about. Maybe I will or maybe I won't submit what I have going.. Right now, the 2 reasons I have holding me back are the facts that 1) You guys have already imbedded the idea in your mind that anything I do on this board is retarded or offensive and it wouldn't matter if I was Picasso at this point. Your opinions are set. And, 2) Because it's later in the game and some have mentioned how people could steal lineups, I'd feel that all my research would go unappreciated and you'd claim I stole your ideas. Jesus, people! There is only so much muisc to go around, and by the looks of the entry lists, how can you not end up duplicating some groups from another's poster? For now, I'll just enjoy the knowledge I'm gaining through this research while appreciating the awesome amount of talent I'm seeing here. If I feel all my studying may pay off before the deadline, maybe then I'll share.

    That's a pretty damn good lineup....this should be in the running.

    I don't usually care about billing order, but did Powderfinger actually make an impact in the United States? I thought Australia was the only country that cared about them, and they didn't become big time rock stars here until 2000.

    Also, Eagles of Death Metal may be on your poster a few years too early...
    Up Next: Cobra Starship, Gogol Bordello, Talib Kweli & Jean Grae

    And is it really that far-fetched for some of those 3rd line acts? Throbbing Gristle was first on the 3rd line at coachella this year.

    I'll give you that the 2nd line billings are questionable, those may be worked on a bit.
    I'd consider Throbbing Gristle a bigger band than any of the 3rd liners, but I guess I take your point.

    And, I guess, to make me look dumb, Gang of Four actually was on the second line in 2005... so having them there in 1996 isn't as hilarious as I thought. I mean, I'm sure they grew in reputation in those 9 years but not enough for hilarity.

    Powderfinger did drop Parables for Wooden Ears in 1994 I think, and it was pretty successful and well received. I wouldn't put it past GV to get a one-off from them.

    And you are right about Eagles of Death Metal - that's an embarrassing mistake on my part. I had them on another list for another year (1998). That will be changed tomorrow.

    You do have a point though about some of them. I'll probably drop the Mekons and Pere Ubu to the 3rd line and find a couple of new 2nd line acts. Maybe drop PWEI to fourth line too. I'm going to keep Cluster where they are though.

    Also, anyone catch the "joke act" I was referring to? It's a reference to a film that was released the same year.

    Dude.

    Not that it matters, but your poster looks a lot like mine that I submitted on Thursday.

    Seriously.

    That is pretty coincidental. Are you talking design or lineup? I didn't make the template, a friend of mine did. I had maybe 90% of the lineup done by Thursday, and at first glance looking at yours there didn't seem to be alot of overlap. But there is bound to be some overlap when two people make the same year.

    Yeah there is some overlap, but the starry night/space/glow-y thing is what I was referring to more. The fact that they are the same year is regrettable.

    In the end, it prolly doesn't matter.

    Except they didn't have five members then. But you're right, it's a good thing that this game isn't a completely different game.

    Matt, I'm sorry, but that Monkees as a headliner thing is pretty goofy. A series of sold-out gigs in the UK doesn't necessarily mean they'd play Coachella. The Monkees were a huge joke in the US....kind of like the Brady Bunch band. If you're serious about having them on your lineup, (and if I were you, which I'm not), I'd move them down. Maybe I'm wrong, but...*shrug*

    That thought did cross my mind, and I think that during the time of their popularity, that would be the right thing to do, because they were considered a "joke" band. But I think that 20-30 years later, they would have an appeal as a rare novelty act that could end up being a huge draw, there would be alot of curiosity over what it would be like.

    It is a bit of a controversial billing, but I think it's possible.

    Question Re: Make a Coachella Lineup In Retrospective - COMPETITION!

    What exactly is being judged? Is the main focus to see who would have the most likely lineup? Or does design/creativity count? Everything together? Just curious...

    It's like a cake baking contest actually. The cake mix would consist of the lineup and the poster design would be the icing on the cake. Simple, right? It seemed that way at first, until music nerds got added to the recipe, and simple cake mix wasn't enough. And, I don't know who's idea it was to sprinkle the top of the cake with that bitter Monklish flavoring, but I'm sure it's left a bad taste in everyone's mouth.

    hahaha i love how every other post is Monklish trying to flex what knowledge it has and cant fathom someone knowing some other truth.

    Careful. It's a simple and honest question but people on here will flame you for "Over-complicating" the contest and act like you asked a stupid question. Really this hasn't been answered, and it seems like it will not be. So just try to do your best on both.
