Thread: Lineup needs a better headliner

  1. #1

    Default Lineup needs a better headliner

    Every year there has been a headliner/subheadliner who was like, 'aw FUCK YEAH!" whether it be prince, roger waters, daft punk, thom yorke, RATM... but this year i'm sadly disappointed...

    don't get me wrong, i'm excited for animal collective, PJ harvey, broken social scene, ratatat, death from above 1979 plus more and a bunch of random EDM, but there's no big BANG that i'm super excited for as far as headliners go... I guess arcade fire, but i'm pretty much over them. I really hope they add someone big like they did last time when they announced Prince..

    for the record... F kings of leon

    the lineup doesn't suck, it just doesn't WOW me like it usually does...

    that won't stop me from going cuz it's never about the headliners.. i thought 2010 headliners sucked, but still had a blast... I just wish there are something epic like at the drive in reunion!

    Kings of Leon are chill, but like most of you said its nothing to leave us speechless like prince, portishead, maccartney etcccccc.

    Muse is pretty intense.

    Granted, the headliners are weak... But how does anyone see that undercard and say it is a bad lineup!?
    Do you hear me Denver? Or shall I turn it up for you?

    NO PRESSURE TO MAKE A GREAT lineup.. when you got fools paying for all three days already and selling out.

    Im telling you as ive said before the line ups seemed better with two days and when you have 99 dollar one day tickets.
    BUT NO MORE

    I just don't want to go home with my last vision of Coachella for an entire year being Kanye West.
    The Strokes would do it for me, but they're #2.
    But KOL are a great band, just their last 2.5 albums have kind of sucked.
    Arcade Fire are amazing, but I've already seen them twice at Coachella.

    Headliners are good, I can't complain, just nothing to write home to mom about.
    But the undercard is where it's at this year.

    Last year's undercard was one of the best Coachella has ever had so I don't have any clue why you would think that proves your point.
    fuck.

    This year its all about the undercard (Suede, PJ Harvey, Interpol, the Presets, etc etc). Headlines are kind of ass - Arcade Fire is meh, KOL is garbage (but really the same quality as the Killers in 09). There is no WOW headliner - Paul McCartney, Jay Z, Roger Waters, but there are more than enough bands on the undercard.

    I got nothing against Kings of Leon, but I never thought they were big enough to headline this thing. I would put them in the same tier as Neon Trees.

    Hope they surprise us with a real headliner later.

    I'd agree. KoL, Arcade Fire, and Kanye don't stand up as well against Jay Z, Muse, Gorillaz. Luckily Sunday The Strokes also headline, so that makes it alot better.


    But the subheadliners kick ass! Black Keys, Interpol, Chemical Brothers, Animal Collective, Mumford & Sons, Bright Eyes, The National, Death from Above 1979.

    It's gonna be fun!

    This is the second KoL/Muse comparison I've seen, and it's freaking mind-boggling.

    If you're saying they're both KROQ-friendly and overexposed, sure, maybe... but Muse puts on an amazing show and has some really interesting music. KoL.... uh, doesn't.

    This.

    Not excited for Kings of Leon, but they've put the Chemical Brothers and Sasha the same day. So it's all good.

    Shouldn't complain about headliners. i like them too but I saw Fatboy Slim during Jack Johnson. it's like he was never there.

    Arcade Fire and K. West I will see for sure.

    When I saw Muse on the lineup last year, I thought HOLY SHIT ITS GOING TO BE AN EPIC SHOW!

    When I saw KoL on the lineup last night, I thought, eh at least their new album is better than the last.


    Not much of a comparison.

    On one hand its just a headliner, if you dont wanna see em then dont. On the other getting KoL is just kind of a big fuck you to everyone. They could taken one of the names below and just swapped it with KoL and it wouldnt be as bad, but its as if GV is mocking us.
    G-funk acquired, thank you Coachella

    You can only get the headliners who are available and want to play. I am sure GV didn't forget to ask Daft Punk, Radiohead, Bowie etc. Either the money was not tempting enough or the time wasn't right.

    I don't think its so much a discussion of which is better as it is that Gorillaz had more of a wow factor. It was their first big show in 4 years. Was pretty left field.

    This is true, but in retrospect, Gorillaz shouldn't have headlined at all, let alone close the festival.
    fuck.

    I dunno. KoL are what they are.
    Arcade Fire are one of the best live acts in the world and Kanye's music frankly always meant more to me than JayZ did.

    Muse are pretty boring, Jay Z was cool but again is less interesting to me than Kanye, and Gorillaz were boring to me (and a lot of other people)

    So all in all this is a net improvement on last year's headers. For me anyway.

    Why don't you all make like a tree and get chopped down and die. You all have been dreadfully mean to me.
    I Hate you. All of you. None of you will ever get to see a womans chest meat or finger blast hott cougies like me.
    Fuck you all. Consider this my resignation.
    Fair the well, you elitest scumbags."

    Yeah, but I feel that if they had played the show how they did on their tour last fall, people would have been praising the show way more. You could just tell that they weren't completely ready to play to their fullest just yet.

    I do think that the Gorillaz music and popularity totally warrants a headlining spot though.

    In defense to Gorillaz set last year: not enough time, not all performers were there due to volcano eruption, terrible logistics by GV for transition from Atoms/Yorke and these factors made Damon a sour Brit.

    I got to see them @ the Gibson in LA and they killled it, I had a blast and the crowd felt the full vibe.

    At least no REM on Sunday. Imagine hearing "everybody hurts" at the End of coachella, it would be the last one for many.

    MUSE boring??? WTF is wrong with ya'll?

    K.O.L are the weakest link - GOODBYE!

    I definitely agree they need to add some bangers to the headliner list.

    And for the record, Gorillaz last year wasn't worth the headliner spot either (ducks down and runs)....
