    Seems like a lot of the bands being listed have already kind of maxed out their popularity potential, which is a huge factor in headlining Coachella. YYYs, Franz and the National all put on fantastic live shows, but are any really going to increase their mainstream popularity more than where they're already at?

    Black Keys and Mumford & Sons are both good bets. 2 more albums each with a few radio hits and they'd be big enough to headline.

    My bet is Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. They gained an insane following last year after only releasing 1 album. 2 more of those in the next 5 years and they could be as big as Arcade Fire is now.

    If empire of the sun have 2 more albums as good as this one they could headline.
    also hot chip, LCD, underworld,YYY(pretty much already there) & maybe royksopp
    should but probably never will: rilo kiley/metric (but both could get as high as bright eyes are this year)

    Metric definitely their mid level shows are insane and they get the crowd going. Wilco is great and they can sell out small halls but they are way past their sell by date as a headliner had it been 04-06 at the height of their Commerical Viablity then I think this could have happened.

    silver sun could headline it if the next record is a real mainstream breakthrough, like if it does for them what only by the night did for Kings of Leon

    It's really not. They need another critically acclaimed album with multiple hits on it before they can headline.

    I can absolutely see Vampire Weekend becoming a headliner. Assuming the albums themselves are not completely failures (of course), they seem about two releases away.

    The National need a radio hit (or several) to tip them over the edge.

    It's seems far too early to tell on the xx, Edward Sharpe, or any other artist with only one release.

    I can't imagine Queens of the Stone Age. If it hasn't happened yet for them, I don't think it ever will.

    Didn't James Murphy said their may be another LCD album in the future, but after 2011 they are done touring?

    Also, after one more album Vampire Weekend could definately headline. They basically headlined Sasquatch last year.

    Eh, James Murphy says a lot of things. I believe maybe 5% of them.

    MIA is one good album away from one good album. Next.

    The National are the answer you are looking for. For any band to headline, they have to have some crossover success. Everyone except Arcade Fire apparently.

    Also...didn't Broken Bells play the Palldium a while ago? One more strong effort and they could be one of the subheadliners later!

    Anyone else think that The White Stripes are likely to headline as a reunion act in a few years?

    Underworld headlining? Sad to say, but if anything, Underworld's popularity has only decreased...they will never be at the level they had after Trainspotting came out....I feel GV would let shit like Girl Talk and SHM headline before Underworld ever did, and I'm just talking about the Sahara in that regard.

    Honestly. Even the Underworld requests have significantly declined over the last 4 years.

    Vampire Weekend will be headlining most fest after their next album. Like a 5 or 6 at Lolla and Coachella.

    Also have a feeling Florence and the Machine will blow up pretty quickly after another album or two.

    Phoenix is pretty much already there, but if their next album is anywhere near as good as Wolfgang and has at least one radio hit, they are definitely there.

    I think every single band on the planet has a chance considering the crap acts they booked this year to headline.
