    Default Can GV use this method to pick the lineup in 2008

    Sorry if this has been posted before, but I just came across the absolutely coolest way for a festival to pick its lineup. The UK festival is ATP vs the Fans, and the fans get to vote on who they want to play! It's absolutely brilliant.
    Check out who is on the bill for this year and who is leading the voting in real time here: ATP vs. the Fans

    What does everyone think about Golden Voice going to the people for next year's show?

    Ok, so there's a band or two that is decent but I would have to go with Golden Voices choice over what the fans chose for this festival. I've seen Wilco a bunch. Modest Mouse live can really be awful. Mogwai was at Coach last year and Explosions are there this year.

    The rest I could care less about.

    I think all 8 would be more than welcome at Coachella.

    It's a novel concept, but you will probably get the same line-up every year using this method.

    Part of what makes Coachella so cool are all the great bands that most of the fans have never even heard of.

    We should be able to tell GV what price the tickets should be, and how many to release, and to give us 2 months warning before a sell-out. We should have a 10-point Coachella customers bill of rights.

    For additional thoughts, go to the Periods for Everyone thread

    Ya we should totally pick the bands so GV loses money cause we get all these like huge bands man. And then we could totally just see all the bands we wanted to see for that year in 2 days and then we could totally get like this big shade tent over the whole polo field so the sun isn't too hot and stuff. Then they could like give us free tickets and meth when we get there, oh and the line to get in shouldn't be as long. I totally hate that line. Finally the chicks can't wear shirts, well the ones with nice jugs, they can't wear shirts.

    Cool.

    With ATP vs. the Fans, ATP chooses half the lineup, fans choose the other half. There's only a certain list of acts that can be chosen from based on prior engagements and a band's desire to do ATP. So it's not every band imaginable, it's a pool of like 50 bands to choose from.

    I'm pretty sure you can choose anyone (you get 10 choices once you have bought your ticket), they just provide a list of people who cannot do it due to prior engagements so you don't waste your vote.

    lollapalooza is doing this with their mailing list.
    they ask for artists, local restaurants and dishes.
    it couldn't hurt.
    top 2 vote-getters would be boards of canada and portishead.
    followed by radiohead and the avalanches.

    I voted no... There are too many fans with diverse opinions, if fans could pick the lineup then there would be more argueing than actual picking. At least thats what I think.

    However, there would be some groups that we all agree one..
    for instance..

    Daft Punk
    Radiohead

    ..and yea maybe a few more that I cant think of at the top of my head.

    What we need to do is boycott divas like Sufjan Stevens who refuse to play, but will play inferior festivals like Sasquatch. And boycott bands like Smashing Pumpkins when they have their big reunions at German nu-metal shitfests instead of Coachella.

    I totally believe GV tries to pick the bands that indie-music loving people want to see and the fact that this year's festival is a sellout is the ultimate compliment to a concert promoter. I just think the idea of letting the ticket buyers give direct input to the lineup is really cool.

    For instance, if GV is trying to decide who to add to this year's festival, why not ask the ticket buyers to choose from a list of potentials?

    But as someone posted above, not everyone knows the latest, coolest bands and would have trouble picking from lesser known acts.

    If early returns are any indicator, it appears the forum members prefer GV do the picking. Seems in line with most American consumer trends.
    My favorite band is cooler than your favorite band.

    I would not want anyone but GV choosing the line up. If this board chose, ICP would be headlining.

    Well actually, they would headline Day 1.
    Daft Punk and Dave Wang (wtf?) would headline Day 2 and 3 respectively.
    But lets not start this again...
