    Well, just because your album goes gold/platinum that doesn't automatically upgrade you to headliner.

    This is true. But the numbers don't lie and people used to equally question Muse or even The Killers' ability to headline. You can probably put me down on record that Phoenix will be headlining in 2012.

    Thanks for that highly definitive claim.

    didn't arcade fire sell out the hollywood bowl like 2 years ago? no one in LA even knew who phoenix was 2 years ago. most of their fans are bandwagon fans who only know singles from the most recent ultra radio friendly album. they're like the KOL of europe

    IMO, headlining Coachella is a combination of commercial success, name recognition and credibility. Every Coachella headliner so far (even JJ, to a more lenient extent on the credibility side) has earned their place under those grounds.

    Phoenix paces well with sales and are obviously respected, but they aren't quite famous enough to headline...yet. In four months, though, anything can happen.
    For 2011, more music that sounds like it would play on the Thailand stage of Street Fighter II.

    This is a silly question.

    1) No one knows when the next time they'll play
    2) No one knows what success they will have when the time comes

    But if they're on the lineup this year (which I highly doubt) they will most certainly NOT headline

    haha fair enough. not to thread jack into a KOL thread but seriously that band is neither as good or as bad as people say. they're an alright band that somehow became massive. happens all the time

    Phoenix is more legit though, no doubt

    I was wondering where i would be able to discuss every over rated band in America. Here it is!

    What do you guys think of Matt and Kim?!

    Arcade Fire sold out the Bowl on a co-headlining tour with LCD Soundsystem. Phoenix sold out the Bowl this year with Grizzly Bear opening. Vampire Weekend sold out the Bowl this year with Beach House opening. The latter two did so despite also playing Coachella earlier this year.

    The Hollywood Bowl is a 17,000+ seat venue -- comparable to most arenas (a couple thousand shy of MSG). If you can sell out a venue that big in LA, you can probably headline Coachella (with the release of another, at-least-as-good album). Doesn't matter if they weren't that big two years ago. They are now.

    Obviously the answer is hell no. I sure hope the Arcade Fire uproar/nonsense dies down before they set the line-up and make them headliners.

    did vampire weekend really sell it out? it must have happened at the last minute because i remember checking several times as it got close and tickets in the first promenade kept popping up

    I'd say no, but I also didn't think Jack Johnson would be a headliner. During the week leading up to that Coachella, there was absolutely no doubt in my mind that someone else would grab that crown. So there goes my thoughts' value.

    No, they are not headliner material right now. If their next album is as successfull as this one, then yes. They could probably headline Coachella. There. Done.

    Phoenix will have the most highly anticipated album of the year, whenever they wind up releasing said album. Buzz, plus staying away the rest of this year, and all of 2011, would put them in the prime position to headline Coachella 2012, or 2013.
