    Default If Bowie ever headlined.....

    should all the stages be closed for him? Considering he is the NO.1 most wanted act to play the festival? Or does the Gorillaz debacle prove we should never do that?

    If he performed the entire Berlin Trilogy would that change your mind? Or did you pick no because you don't want every asshole on the fields there?

    No, I would see Bowie over just about anything. But, I just don't think everyone should be limited to seeing one act.

    ...and the Berlin Trilogy was more a comment on Bowie's relevance as opposed to him playing it, because he wouldn't.

    Bowie, as I stated a million times. Is only good if he wants it to be good. That being said, if he finally says yes to Coachella then that is because he wants to be there and thus higher chance of it being good.

    funny enough. I do see them closing down at least the outdoor and the gobi for Radiohead. They have played unopposed @ OSL, Lolla and APW on their last run and I could easily see them working out a deal to make sure they got it @ Coachella. Just look @ the quiet time Thom got?

    I feel like the idea that Bowie would be so incredible at Coachella has been over-hyped by the fact that he's apparently turned Coachella down a bunch of times. In reality, he'd probably be, like, the third or fourth biggest Coachella headliner (I'm thinking he'd be behind McCartney and Radiohead, and maybe Waters, too).

    most requested headliner doesn't equal the biggest. U2 will be the biggest when they headline.

    I would have no interest in seeing Bowie, so i would hope that they would have other performers playing during his set.....such as Sly Stone....

    There were so many people at Gorillaz (to the right of the stage), I was afraid to move, fearing that I would be trampled if I tried to exit.

    Why does everyone always forget Justice played unopposed in 2008?

    I don't think it should be like this for any act, part of what makes Coachella great is the diversity and choice to see a wide array of music at any point in the day.

    I say close all the stages!

    And thanks to my co-workers playing a Bowie marathon of music when I got back to the office. They officially named the day after Coachella, "Songs by that guy that will never play Coachella". Thanks co-workers.

    I would want Underworld in the Sahara, and Thom Yorke at the Outdoor Theatre, conflicting entirely with Bowie. Not because I don't like them, because I do, but because it would draw a lot of people away from the Main Stage and I can get a better spot.

    What would be the point in closing all other stages. Leave them open. Those of us who want to see Bowie will watch, and those who don't won't

    No Space Oddity?

    I voted for all the stages to be closed because it's BOWIE. Why would anyone in their right mind even choose another act? Would another act even agree to play against him?

    Actually, nevermind. Can we get someone like MGMT or Hot Chip or Guetta to play at the same time to draw away some of the tens of thousands of teeny boppers that now overrun the festival?

    I love Bowie and although he is worthy of having all the other stages shut down, I don't think it should occur. It's a music festival and I think people paying their hard earned money to attend should have the choice of what they want to watch. Of course, those not wanting to watch Bowie are simply crazy, but that's another issue.

    I wouldn't want 10,000 aggro-fuckfaces in deadmau5 heads pissing me off on the main during Bowie's set. Stick them in the Sahara and hope that the tent collapses on itself.

    There's too many people to close down all the stage for bowie. On a side note am I the only one that now will get annoyed when he hears that bowie is playing coachella? Although it will never happen, it would be great.

    I selfishly would want all of them to be closed just to make the experience more dramatic for myself. Bowie is and will always be my favorite musician of all time, and I will miss show after show to get the rail for this if it was to ever happened.

    I'll just keep dreaming.
