    This same thread with the same artist names could have existed 5 years ago. Dance music sure is progressive.

    How about The Prodigy? They are a great band that has not played in awhile. they have been recording some new tracks this past year and could get the Sahara dancing Friday Saturday or Sunday... PS I'd also like to see Future Funk Squad

    There are innumberable bands/artists who could seriously be considered for main stage headliners whereas these threads are always people arguing over the same old dozen or so acts.

    We really only need Basement Jaxx and Underworld.

    I agree with Pot here. Except for Daft Punk, I don't understand why people seem to want a duplicate Sahara tent experience every year. Prodigy? Played twice already. Underworld? Better, but played twice. Chemical Brothers? They have played 4 times!!! (maybe 5?) Tiesto and PVD? Shameful.
    It's time for something NEW.

    Prodigy have been playing for the past two years pretty much since Coachella 2005. They just played San Fran on thanksgiving. Basement jaxx live set would be f*cking awesome again like in 2004. I just hope there isn't a major conflict on Sunday. I think RATM is great on CD, but everything live I have heard or seen hasn't impressed me (I never saw them perform in person just on DVD) but if Underworld is playing against them, it's a tough call just for the fact that the energy with be explosive at both stages.

    Being that they're two thirds of the way down the lineup on the poster, no.

    This sentiment makes me want to stab out my eyes with a pen.

    Sasha and Digweed are tired, boring, and so far behind the curve it's ridiculous.

    Really? I wouldn't expect there to be many "Coachella people" who are into RATM, though sadly I do expect Coachella will be overrun by "RATM people." Hopefully, I won't cross paths with them too much.

    They're not. They're really not.

    They were kind of a big deal when I was in high school and they were playing Lollapalooza back in 1993, but that was a long time ago and my musical taste was underdeveloped then, and the whole thing is now faintly embarrassing.

    I'm with you.

    The headliners suck, too.

    Except for Bjork. Yes, she was around 8 years ago, but if you listen to the album she made then and the stuff she's making now you can tell that she's still developing and breaking new ground as an artist.

    I think part of the problem is that, while dance music isn't stuck in a rut per se, the people doing really cool new stuff are still playing to very small niche markets, especially in Southern California, whereas the boring stuff still has a huge following of people who go to all the big massives to see the same shortlist of 10 DJs on a rotating basis.

    "Wow, this year Nocturnal Uber-Massive has PVD and Paul Oakenfold! Last year they had John Digweed and Armin Van Buren! And then, after that, Giant Electric Wonderland has Armin Van Buren and Tiesto, not like last year when they had John Digweed and PVD! All these massives just keep having these amazing fresh lineups year after year!"

    Meanwhile, PVD, Tiesto, Sasha and Digweed, Oakenfold, and the others are all sitting on a yacht somewhere in the Mediterranean taking bets on how long they can keep the scam going before someone notices.

    The really exciting people in electronic dance music have cult followings now, not big enough to headline the Sahara tent, and the bulk of the fanbase doesn't seem to want anything other than a steady diet of the same old same old.

    Personally, I wish they would just stick someone more innovative in to headline the big tent and count on them to shake asses and win people over, but I can see why they don't feel they can take that chance.

    Give me Aphex Twin please!!! It will help in really not having to see all of RHCP on Saturday if there is something awesome happening in the Sahara. I left halfway through Coldplays set to see Chamicals in 2005 so why not...

    The prodigy just headlined the rok out fest in san bernadino ca pretty recently, the turn out for them wasnt too large. A very poorly organized event indeed.

    Faithless is a very capable headliner for the dance tent. They will put on a definite good show, hopefully they will be able to use their visuals which usually accompany their sets. But theyve been overdue for a Coachella appearance, of course, they are no Daft Punk.

    Here's hoping Underworld still steps up to the plate.

    I was expecting James Zabiela on the line up...never seen him live, but from what I've seen in videos he is doing great stuff...

    and for headliner...underworld...or maybe Oakenfold can be there to press "play" on the Underworld CD like last year.

    I don't think Underworld has ever done a set that's not live...guitars and all. They are too good to be like Paul Jokenfold (doesn't he just live at the empire polo fields or something??)
