    Default Are Phoenix Headliners The Next Time They Play At Coachella?

    I think they are. Their American fanbase has exponentially grown over the past couple of years plus their next album will have to meet lofty expectations from critics and fans alike. I heard that they're taking a break after this relentless touring to focus on the next record

    If they played this year I think they'd be the third name on any given day. After another successful album, I wouldn't count them out as headliners. Remember their Lollapalooza headlining gig is probably equivalent to a second name at Coachella - like Atoms for Peace and Faith No More for example.

    I kind of agree second line tops. If their next album has as many singles as Wolfgang did then I can maybe see them headlining, but thatd have to be one hell of a follow up

    Given that it usually takes them about three years for a new album, that should be enough build up and anticipation for their next one. and if it's as good as wolfgang they'll have a headlining spot.

    I think it will be at least 3 years before they release another album. All they've done is tour non-stop for pretty much 2 years. I bet they just chill out for a year before even thinking about getting back together to do another album.

    But no... not quite headlining status. Something doesn't seem right say if... well... maybe... if you think about it. Are they really all that less popular than... Gorillaz?

    I'm positive that a new album will come out before 3 years. During their set at Outside Lands the guy said something along to the lines of "We wont be back in SF for awhile we are going to take some time off to record a new album"

    To answer the question yes I think they will headline. A weak headliner yes but they will be.

    I could actually see them taking less than 3 years with all the momentum they have from Wolfgang and possibly hitting up the studio soon.

    I'm not too sure about headliners though...this is the first album really to hit the U.S.

    If everyone's managed to convince themselves that Arcade Fire are headliners, then so are Phoenix.

    I would bet money on Phoenix's next album bombing worse than MGMT's latest did.

    Eh, no way. I dont see them changing their music path as MGMT did for their 2nd album. They found a good niche and they're here to stay for a while.

    I don't see them changing their style of music. I see them following up with a terrible album within their style.

    I've never heard Arcade Fire on the radio. Lisztomania and 1901 both get played on the radio. I never know who wins king of the hipsters or mid-level mainstream.

    Papa Roach gets more radio play than Radiohead in a lot of places. Not the right measuring stick.

    Not comparable to AF. I would've said so a year ago, but once you've sold out two shows at MSG and had a #1 album the debate kinda goes out the window.

    They've also met the criteria I've always had of at least 3 radio hits (Rebellion, Wake Up, Ready to Start).

    Phoenix can sell out 3,000 person venues maybe, and have two hits that I know of, so they're coming up but not quite AF level.

    i just saw phoenix at a sold out hollywood bowl. highly doubt that AF could do that (maybe in hipster LA)

    phoenix is way bigger than AF, even stateside.

    Phoenix also had Grizzly Bear and Girls with them.

    You are nuts if you think Phoenix are bigger than Arcade Fire.

    I think I might have expressed my surprise about Phoenix' American status before, but it does sort of blow my mind.

    They've had a few radio hits... lyrics are pretty meh. I've seen them live a couple of times, and they're fun... but headliners they are not. Especially over Arcade Fire.
