    I hope a band like The Big Pink continues to make great music and follow up from their debut. It's premature to say they will be a headlining band in five years but I personally hope so

    Headliners are not who you think is good or who you'd like to see. Headliners are for the mainstream, "ive never heard of Coachella but I've heard of Kings of Leon" kind of people. So I find it pretty ridiculous that you think that your personal preference of Lupe over Kanye means more headlining potential. Kanye is huge whether you like him or not, and whether you like him or not he is certainly "big" enough to headline and certainly "bigger" than Lupe.

    The Avett Brothers are nowhere in the stratosphere of headlining. Nowhere close. Nobody was happy about JJ headlining, but that doesn't pave the way for more shitty headliners.

    I wonder if the Silversun Pickups make another hit record they'd be considered big enough. Probably not but I love em and they get played on KROQ a lot.

    I was thinking them, along with Vampire Weekend. I also see Phoenix, the Black Keys, and The National(this one is a longshot) maybe one day getting to headliner status.

    I would say YYY's, but it seems their album stalled on them(similar to Interpol in 07). If album 4 brings them back, then we can talk about headliner status. It just seems harder now to regain momentum after a weak album, and they also seem to take too long with new album releases.

    If TVOTR was better live, they would probably be a safe bet. They have yet to put out a bad album

    If they put out two more along the lines of Carnavas, they're golden.

    day 1: At the Drive-In

    day2: The White Stripes, or Led Zeppelin with Jason Bonham (his son) on drums

    day 3: The Gaslamp Killer/Kutmah and/or Flying Lotus

    could be a while for some of these?

    eh. Ill keep my hopes up.

    EDIT:
    I'm also going to throw Neutral Milk Hotel out there for the fuck of it.

    Really? It's Blitz was rated one of 2009's best. Another album with singles like "Heads Will Roll" will give them a good spot at headlining.

    And i agree with Phoenix being a headliner if not, a co-headliner like The Strokes are this year. I dont see them flopping with their next album.

    2012's worst headliner? Lady Gaga is out with a new album in the next couple months...be ready. Then again, that's not a horrible idea compared to the thought of Lil Wayne or (insert almost any rapper).

    Lots of good mentions here, although I think Phoenix is basically there now, they don't need 5. One name that hasn't been mentioned is Cut Copy. I could easily see them rise up the ranks over the next few years.

    in 5 years i think that

    MUSE, RADIOHEAD, RHCP, PEARL JAM

    could headline.


    up-and-comings?

    i think

    Cage the Elephant (after 2 more solid albums)
    Silversun Pickups (after 1 more solid album)

    could headline.


    i have a twisted fantasy that someday the japandroids get big. gah i wish they'd play coachella

    I'd love to see Metric and Robyn play big places in the US.

    Robyn has done some big places in Europe and Metric have done at least a dozen Canadian shows int he 5-10,000 range where they had the audience in the palm of their hands.

    A Perfect Circle, QOTSA, Interpol, Pearl Jam (has to happen sooner or later), Deftones, Primus (or at least sub-headliner), Cocteau Twins

    I know we're mainly talking about bands that are big or in the first half of a potentially long career, but I just want to touch on some in their "elite veteran" status. I want to say Modest Mouse, but I don't think they will ever put out something that gets them enough plays to put them over the hump. Maybe the same thing with the Flaming lips. Wilco?

    I believe that The Pixies, not a newer band of course, will headline a day of Coachella in the future.

    I don't think I can think come up with a younger band that hasn't been mentioned already. Apparently Animal Collective is close. I had no idea. I've never heard one casual music fan ever say their name. I'm still shocked they're on the second line.

    The ceiling for almost every band mentioned in here only goes as high as subheadlining.

    Certainly not currently, but in 5 years? Shit if KOL can be headlining this year, one hit record from Vampire Weekend will have on top off a Friday in the future.

    I've seen three or four mentions of Flying Lotus in here. As a headliner. For Coachella. I like the guy's music, but what universe are you people living in that you think that type of music will ever have the kind of mass appeal needed for a headliner.
