Thread: Who Has Headliner Potential in 5 Years?

    TV on the Radio announced their new album/tour is coming this spring. I think they could easily be a sub-headliner next year; maybe 1 more album and they could headline.

    And lol at 30 Second to Mars. Please.

    Bands that might have headliner potential in 5 years?

    How about Arcade Fire.

    I can't believe I read through every single one of these posts and nobody mentioned Yeasayer or Beach House. If they both put out two more successful records they could headline in five years.

    And I'm gonna throw Broken Bells in there too...although I'll admit that's probably a stretch.

    Don't get me wrong, I like Beach House. I really enjoy their albums. But that would be one boring headliner. "Yay! I've been dancing and partying all day and night long, now I'm going to close my night out Beach House?" zzzzzzzz

    I kind of wanted Weezer to play Blue Album on night one this year and Pinkerton on night three. Maybe not headline both nights, but eh.

    Other bands that are already at that level but haven't formally headlined yet: Daft Punk, Flaming Lips, Queens of the Stone Age, Gnarls Barkley (after 1 more album), Tom Waits

    Bands that could be there in 5 years: Antony and The Johnsons, Animal Collective, MGMT, Of Montreal, Wavves, Janelle Monae, Bon Iver, We Are The World (Sahara), Yeasayer, Beach House, Deerhunter, and Late of the Pier could break through at any moment.

    Beck
    Phoenix
    YYY's
    The Black Keys
    Yeasayer
    Kid CuDi
    MGMT
    Friendly Fires
    Drake

    acts like Flying Lotus/Justice will never get bigger than "co-headlining" aka closing out Sahara or Mainstage after the "real" headliner. Daft Punk is the only electronic act in the world capable of headlining a non electronic fest. and YES, you can thank Kanye for that. people severely downplay the effect 'Ye had on exposing Daft Punk to an new audience.

    As a band that used to be interesting, but keeps getting more popular with each underwhelming release, they certainly fit the criteria. I can't see them ever headlining Coachella, though. Sasquatch, for sure.

    i think any reasonable spectator would agree that in 5 years or less the headliners will probably be

    MGMT
    Florence + Machine
    Vampire Weekend

    Unless, the next records are artistic and/or commercial failures of course. If the momentum they all have increases and the next singles and records are solid and popular i don't see how these bands could escape headlining coachella as well as all the other big festivals.

    also another band that might do it is a band like the Temper Trap. Their first record got played all over major market radio and created significant momentum for them. They're trying to be like an australian U2. In 5 years they could be at that level

    I was under the impression that MGMT's latest album was a failure.

    Adding that to the fact that they are terrible live, MGMT will never headline.

    No way, MGMTs new album was amongst my favorite of the year...way better than their first radio-friendly, catchy-pop, teen-driven, single-laden debut. Their new album showed growth and that's why so much of their intial audience has jumped the bandwagon. A lot of critics and music fans feel this way, so I know it's not jut me.

    They will probably be big enough to sub after their next album, but I agree their lack of a strong live show will disallow them to reach headliner status in 5 years time unless they can right that ship.
