    There are only about 107 bands there, and on average there are about 80 or so bands a day at Coachella....do the math.

    What the hell happened to The Police and QOTSA? Would they really have the presale password "roxanne" if they weren't coming?

    I'm really hoping for more here, frankly because, I hate to say it, there is a lot of crap. Not to say there aren't a lot of great bands coming, but Nickel Creek? Damian Rice? Regina? Kings of Leon? Did the promoters of Lilith Fair or NME take part in this?

    over and over again they've said the roxanne thing was a joke...

    are you fucking tarded... regina spektor happens to be one of the best female solo musicians, possibly ever.

    Am I "fucking 'tarded"? No. No I'm not. I also didn't say Regina was a terrible artist, neither is Damian Rice, but they are a bit light rock for Coachella. I wouldn't go so far as to say she is one of the best solo musicians ever. That is a gross overstatement.

    as posted in another thread, I beleive the organizers were thinking of going to a more spread out schedule ... less overlaps and conflicts ... and we don't know when each day starts ...

    this could be 98% done ... but who knows.

    Whoa whoa, Coachella's never had 80 bands a day, it's usually somewhere between 40 and 50. I'm with scoop49er in thinking that it'll be around 120, maybe upwards of 130. Pitchfork kinda confirmed this suspicion by dubbing what has been released thus far as the "preliminary" lineup. The Police? Smashing Pumpkins? Not gonna happen. But I could see bands as big as Modest Mouse or QOTSA still get announced. And I don't think we've heard the last of the Gwen Stefani chatter. Remember, Kanye, Daft Punk and Madonna were all added later last year.

    Saturday so far looks really weak to me. I hope they add some more to Saturday--or I need to get into more of those bands.

    Yeah...i'm a little confused by the Decemberists being on the second line...I'm assuming more will come. Or maybe I'm just not paying attention and don't realize how popular they are.

    I think we'll see a few more 'big' acts named... Daft Punk, Massive Attack, Kanye West, Madonna all got added in March of last year. DP and MA's sets were a great addition to the lineup... hopefully we can get a few more added in the next couple months. I just hope no Smashing Pumpkins. THE WORST live band I've ever seen, and the only band I've ever walked out on after 3 songs. Billy Corgan just plain sucks ass live.

    how can you judge a whole performance from three songs?

    you must have caught them on a bad night because every time i've seen them they were beyond stellar. i've been to hundreds of rock shows, and the pumpkins are very very high on the list. billy corgan is an excellent live musician, even with zwan he was beyond impressive.

    they will not be playing, so don't worry about it.

    I have seen them a few times and they are TERRIBLE LIVE, he's a good musician but his voice is one of the all time worst! Done and done!

    man man would be cool. I'd like to see Subtle or the Liars added in. And while I'm dreaming. The Knife would be awesome.

    but mostly, I'd love to see the liars.

    the decemberists are pretty huge. not too big on them, but they put on a damn good show. I'm more surprised about the Arctic Monkeys on the second line, am I the only person that thinks they are rehashed garbage?

    As of this morning, my sources are STILL telling me that the POLICE is a go.

    They've not worked out Coachella details as an ABSOLUTE, but the band IS reuniting, and Coachella is on the table as an option.

    Fire away, naysayers.
