Thread: Coachella 2011 Headliners

    Dream headliners for me would be Arcade Fire/Daft Punk/Radiohead

    throw in the Knife somewhere on the poster, and I might just pass out.

    I'm pretty sure Daft Punk is main stage only headliner status or sub at this point. But the Sahara would be more fun to be sure.

    They played two nights at MSG.

    They can headline Coachella, easily.

    I'm pretty sure that more people in America listen to The Killers than Oasis. Please note that this is not a value laden assertion.

    If everyone will remember, at some point Portishead were going to headline a day, whom despite the quality, appeal to a very small audience. I'd say Arcade Fire are much much bigger then they are.

    My 3 picks to headline if I was in charge:
    Pulp (touring next year)
    the Strokes (new album next year)
    R.E.M. (New album next year + "legendary")

    Well, if the objective is to thin the crowds to avoid a Clusterfuckchella repeat, his headliner lineup would certainly accomplish it.

    I mention it for quality purposes, not quantity. Besides, 5 stages gives us all a plethora of choices. I would even add a sixth comedy stage with "alt comedians" and no Dane Cook in site.

    What is the sixth stage? I know the Main Stage, Outdoor Theatre, the Sahara, the Mojave and the Gobi.

    From what we can tell it's a dubstep/dnb stage put on by Pure Filth. You can read about it here

    Also, many of you were convinced Pavement were going to headline as well. Be realistic people.

    I agree with this, but if it were a dream, I'd have Arcade fire sub to someone a little bigger.

    No you wouldn't. Whoever were playing after Arcade Fire would be put to shame. I don't think any band in their right mind would want to play after Arcade Fire.

    8-9 National -> 9:30-11 AF -> 11:30-1 DP

    Roxy Music Outdoor 8:30-9:45

    They could headline, I just don't think they will.
    To reiterate

    Right, because if Arcade Fire sub headlined for Radiohead on Friday, Radiohead COULD not follow arcade fire.

    Dude-

    http://coachella.com/forum/search.php?searchid=9875219

    195 results, not counting signatures, "lol" responses, puking emoticons or aliases. You talk about them more than plenty of boardies who actually like them, so don't go telling me they're being shoved down your throat or anything. You're more into them than most, in a Moonlighting kinda way.

    Yeah, I'm all about the dated televisual references these days.

    Anyway, the point is, it's not like we're being wacky and unreasonable to suggest that Arcade Fire are very good at playing live music in public places or anything, it's a fairly widely accepted idea. Ergo, they are a difficult act to follow at a festival. None of these are radical or uninformed statements.

    I try to be pretty chill about this stuff, but seeing this conversation play out over and over and over again is starting to wear thin even on my own saintly patience.
