    Default ~~ Official 2011 Lineup Approval Rating ~~

    It’s back. The ‘Official’ 2011 Coachella Lineup Approval rating.

    How does the approval rating of the lineup change over time?

    And how does it compare to the approval rating during the same time periods from prior years.

    That’s what we are going to find out. This poll will expire in one week and after that, we’ll track the approval rating once per month until the festival itself.

    Scale is 1 – 5, and I will publish the weighted average in each of the subsequent polls.

    I hate it. I am considering not going, although I already paid for car camping and tents and such.

    Last year had so many acts that I never expected and was so excited to see, plus many bands I got into.

    This year, no punch. All bland bands that are for indie girls and guys with the same sensibilities.

    awful. No matter how many times I look at the poster. Friday is a waste land. Saturday and Sunday have some names I'd like to see but over all just awful and in no way compared to previous years.

    Besides Arcade Fire, I'm not there for the headliners at all.
    Very strong undercard this time.

    How can anyone "love" this lineup? It's alright, I guess, but in comparison to last year it's fucking awful.

    Last year had 40 acts that I wanted to see, 25ish of which I was extremely excited for.

    This year I count 30 acts that I'm at least somewhat interested in, and these are the only ones I'm legitimately excited for:

    Arcade Fire
    The Drums
    The National
    Lauryn Hill
    Titus Andronicus
    OFF!!!
    Animal Collective
    The Radio Dept
    The Strokes / Interpol (though half the concert will be their new trash, so whatever)

    I mean, the rest are honestly pretty whatever imo. Where the fuck are bands like Pulp? Bands like Echo and the Bunnymen or PIL and Pavement that were so well represented last year? All we get is fucking Duran Duran? Whatever.

    Yes, exactly this. Mumford and Sons? Good Old War? Empire of the Sun? Ratatat? Sleigh Bells? Crystal Castles? Best Coast? Kings of fucking Leon?

    I mean, come on, I don't mind a few songs by each of those, but last year only saw MGMT to represent the whole indy-hipster bullshit. Now we have half the fucking lineup reading like this.

    I honestly have no idea what the FUCK anyone is thinking with sleigh bells. I guess its one thing to sign them to play, but then another to have them 4th line. C'MON!

    I have watched 1 headliner the last two years and was happy with the lineups. This year looks to be the same. There are more acts I'm thrilled for on Friday and Sunday than I could possibly see and even Saturday, I'm sure with a little research I'll have 8-10 sets to watch. It's worth the trip for me.
    Wow, 12 step meetings at Coachella, who knew? SOBERCHELLA.COM

    I'm a reasonable man, get off my case....

    I don't agree with that. I think most of us that travel every year see Coachella as a destination festival. We plan for it all year long.

    One of the worst things about this fucking lineup is that it will discourage you guys from making the trip over while it is absolutely fucking guaranteed to attract every douchebag in the Southern California area.

    Everyone and their lame mothers likes all these pop groups.

    The undercard far outweighs the crappy pop stuff so this should be a blast!

    damn...surprising.

    last year i was thoroughly unimpressed on the release date. settled in, liked it a little more. had the time of my life and saw unbelievable sets once it happened.

    this year. way more excited from the jump.

    give it time people. check out the undercard. dabble. give another listen to the shit you cast aside long ago.

    I'm coming from Alaska and I'm more excited about this lineup than about any lineup since 2007, the first year I came.

    Ditto. Making the trip from the Bay State. Went last year for the first time with my teenagers and enjoyed the vibe and the variety. The headliners this year disappoint so I'll be far away from the main stage on Friday and Sunday.
    Hoping for a PIL-like alternative to Kanye on Sunday. Will it be the Strokes playing simultaneously?

    I mean, I'm happy with the lineup over all... but jesus christ Sleigh Bells is terrible live. I never bothered checking their studio shit out cause I saw them live, but I know people who legitimately liked it and then saw their set only to be like "yeah, this is crap"

    last year the whole outdoor stage was pretty much hipster bullshit. Didnt almost every band on the outdoor stage have a song in a commercial the year prior. (Phoenix, Temper Trap, Passion Pit.....), I remember hanging out in the shade of the bleachers waiting for a real act to start and would laugh as hordes of people would go to the out door stage mill around for half the set not even paying attention, freaking out when the big "hit" song was played and then wander off to the beer garder or do lab.
