    Too bad all those people suck live. I think Drake is perilously close to that "we would have booked him when he was smaller, but now he's too big and we would rather that spot go to somebody else" territory. Which is why I don't think we'll ever see him at Coachella. See also: Eminem.

    After seeing them this year, I sooooo badly want Kasabian to have several radio hits so they can headline.

They want to sell tickets as fast as possible. This year they will probably sell out at pre-sale due to the fact that Radiohead and Dre & Snoop were big names and put on great shows. But if next years lineup isn't up to par then 2014 pre-sale may not be the same story. Just my opinion. Take all this with a grain of salt. Most people (including myself) just go for the experience anyway.
    I'm not saying that Coachella won't continue booking these huge acts and that they may get bigger or even more mainstream down the road but I see them having the "weak" but extremely popular radio headliners as well, at least at this rate, we'll see if they change it up in the next couple of years

    It's pretty sad that they headline festivals in the U.K. but here they play to small audiences such as the Fonda

    Same. People in the UK would fucking die at the chance to see Kasabian the way we did. That was the closest I got all weekend and it was incredible! Great crowd weekend 1.

    Gary Clarke Jr. seems to be doing pretty well for himself this year. I've heard him on tv a couple of times now (NFL draft and NBA playoffs) and he's definitely a talented dude. In 5 years I can see him becoming much more popular at this rate, however I'm iffy about him ever headlining... he has the talent though

    Metric is booked for the 6,000 capacity Greek Theater October 9th, also the 6,000 capacity Radio City Music Hall in NYC in September. That's 6 months or so exactly before Coachella 2013, which has been a used as a radius clause of Coachella in the past.

    They haven't announced a canadian tour yet, but I'm sure there's going to be a couple arenas on there.

    They won't headline, but I don't know where they'd go on the poster. Shins/Feist/PJ Harvey level?

    even though i feel they've hit their peak already, with a hit single and strong album I wouldn't count Interpol completely out as a headliner one day...

    Interpol should never play Coachella again...'11s Friday night main stage set was one of the dullest acts I've ever seen in the five years I've gone to Coachella.

    One of the most overrated acts of last decade, haven't put out a decent album in ten years.

    Interpol will headline. Probably not for like three more albums though when they've plodded their way into being remembered as a classic act people remember kicking off the 00's hipster music aesthetic.

    I'd like to hear people's thoughts on Tame Impala. It looks like the bassist was just replaced, but with two solid albums and a recent radio jingle I think the potential is there for these guys.

    They're too weird to ever fully cross over. Which is totally fine.

    If Grizzly Bear are still playing the Mojave then Tame Impala are definitely not headlining.

    Honestly, the only band I think has potential to headline that played this year would be The xx, given they release one or two more solid albums.

    a year later this doesn't look too bad. the Black Keys paved a path for him that is up to him to embrace. he definitely has the hype, another couple albums might solidify his spot if he gets creative.

    I'd love to see QOTSA finally get the bump up to headliner. They're headlining several festivals in Europe this summer and they headlined at Lolla Chile/Brazil. I think they need one more "No One Knows" type hit to fully crossover here in the states though. But if any major US festival could give them a chance to headline, it'd be Coachella.

    I think Vampire Weekend will headline the next time they play.

    I agree that when Vampire Weekend returns, it will be as headliners. I am fine with that as their new album is fantastic.

    I think Death Cab For Cutie will headline at some point. As will Foo Fighters. Perhaps M83 if they return with more monster singles.
