    What's even worse is that Josh Freese is the drummer for DEVO and A Perfect Circle. Weezer has been a nice "paycheck gig" for him the last couple years with DEVO working around that somewhat.

    it was a commercial failure but not an artistic one. it wasn't a continuation of oracular spectacular, so people didn't want to deal with it.

    its really not a bad album, but it takes a couple listens to for it to sink in

    Broken Bells is a side project and not that an impressive a debut to boot...don't see how you can even consider them a possibility.

    You people are dreaming (and inconsiderate of the thread's title) if you think Zeppelin would ever play Coachella (I don't care to quote the several people who said it, you know who you are). If you thought the tickets for this year sold out fast, the mere rumor, for example, if Monklish decided it would be a gag, of Zeppelin playing at Coach would result in layaway tickets selling out hours after they were available, there was a fucking ticket lottery for a hundred thousand people who weren't absurdly rich or well connected in the industry to try and see them in London, btw these tickets were much more than just three hundred dollars. Zeppelin playing there would mean that over half of the attendants to that year wouldn't even realize that there was a festival going on around them as they wait for Zep

    My money is on Janelle Monae, thank you Grammys, but this a great possibility of happening within five years.

    Phoenix could probably do it with one more hit album. Ditto for TVotR or Hot Chip maybe?

    With two more hit albums Florence + The Machine might be able to pull it off.

    In an awesome world Janelle Monae will be there in 5 years, but the Metropolis suite went *nowhere* commercially, and while everyone was talking about how awesome Archandroid was, she never seemed to get much / any mainstream traction (even after touring with Prince and No Doubt, of all people).

    Band i'd love to see experience a Killers-esque trajectory from tiny font tent-opener to headliner, although it probably won't happen? The Joy Formidable.

    Wasn't Portishead a headliner a few years ago? Tell me they're not sleepier than Beach House. Songs like Zebra, 10 Mile Stereo, Lover Of Mine and Used To Be are just as upbeat as anything Portishead or Bjork ever did. (I could add Jack Johnson, Coldplay & Oasis to the list of "sleepy" headliners but I'm sure most people here would agree that those bands suck)

    Plus I think you have to consider two (or three) more hypothetical albums from them in the next five years, that's part of the point of the thread. Who knows how many "hits" those records might generate. And maybe their sound will become more upbeat. I think Beach House has a certain level of "fantastic" that could headline Coachella one day. They certainly have the talent to produce some more great music. And they're likable.

    And I said Broken Bells was a stretch. I do think their debut was impressive though.

    ^ As I said, I'm hoping the Grammys might add to her popularity and future commercial success, at least a lot of kids will probably see her albums and recognize her crazy hair now

    Skrillex will never headline Coachella. And neither will Odd Future.

    Phoenix, Bon Iver, The National and The Black Keys can definitely have headline in the upcoming years.

    Lady Gaga sells millions of records and sells out arenas. Has been doing so for years.

    No on Drake and Cage the Elephant (lol). Foster the People are one hit wonders. Look for them to disappear in the next few years.

    Portishead was the backup headliner if Prince couldn't perform.

    If The Weeknd doesn't fizzle out or crash and burn before reaching star status, that cat will be at LEAST sub-headlining within a few years. Shit, maybe even sooner with this momentum behind him.

    The bolded COULD headline in the future. The rest are subs down the road at the very best. Deadmau5, Kasabian, Kid Cudi, Skrillex, DFA 1979, Feist and TVOTR are not going to be headliners at any point in their careers in the future. Jack White won't headline unless it's a White Stripes reunion.

    EDM headliners down the road? Outside of Daft Punk, I don't see anyone who could fit the bill, not even Deadmau5. The fiver could close the main stage, but he wouldn't be a top-billed headliner.

    Exactly. MM will never headline Coachella...as much as I love them, they will never top the popularity they got when they released Good News (good Lp but definitely not their best. This is a long drive & Lonesome are the best ones in my opinion). And plus, Issac hates playing festivals...last time I saw them at Pitchfork 2010, he looked like he didn't give a shit! But Sasquatch 2011 set looked amazing....SHIT LUCK!
