    Default "17 Acts Likely to Play Coachella"

    Friend sent me this article at work, thought it was worth mentioning although they really don't suggest anything revolutionary:

    http://www.coolhunting.com/culture/coachella-2012.php

    I agree with a lot of it...I almost think Bon Iver, Fleet Foxes and Lykke Li are a given (if they're available), they just make too much sense to not at least be highly considered (along with Adele and Florence + The Machine who are not mentioned here). Big acts with (varying degrees of) indie cred who will look impressive on the poster and draw big crowds...almost too easy of a prediction.

    I liked the arguments for a lot of the likely tent bands too as those are the most difficult to predict (well, apart from headliners). I thought their tracking of labels who are successful at getting their artists booked was interesting. Holy Ghost! would be great, I can easily see The Naked and Famous happening as well. I'm sure Justice will be there, but I really disagree with them suggesting a headlining spot. Beasties I'm not too sold on.

    I actually don't see this as that big of a stretch. They would certainly not headline, I think the article is off on that. However, I can see them putting Justice closing the main, especially given that a very high-profile electronic act has closed the main stage two years in a row now. I know everybody wants Daft Punk in this slot, but I think Justice is exponentially more likely.

    Coachella has done for Deadmau5 what it was supposed to do..... it started him off in the Sahara in 08, in an afternoon slot and skyrocketed him to success. That year things really took off for him, and in 09 he was pretty much dj of the year leading up to his Sahara headlining spot last year. But since then not so much, the majority of the fans that enjoyed his rise have now gone on to bigger and better things and have realized hes very hit or miss (ULTRA 11). Theres just no reason to bring him back...... he doesnt have over a decade worth of cred like some edm artists (Chem Bros, Tiesto), so he wont ever go on the main. And from what ive come to understand about Paul T and Co is all about providing new opportunities for others, so why have him take away someone new's headlining spots.

    ...Diplo's label Mad Decent has been putting out some crunky dance music...

    ...had the help of Dan Lissvik to produce their best record yet, and a dance-inflected pop sound...

    ...it's likely that next year the Sydney dance duo, Bag Raiders...

    ...Morning Parade (not pictured) is a popular dance-driven rock band...

    ...Dom has a chance for an early day tent slot. Grungy electro sound, check. Dance-y synthesized beats and hooks, check....

    ...The Japanese Popstars - Insanely catchy dance music beats, tripped out video animations and...

    ...Metric - Nothing the Coachella crowds like better then dance driven electro-rock bands led by charismatic female singers...

    I'm actually fine with a big electronic act ending the mainstage for either friday or saturday night.

    I think the Fleet Foxes are more likely to end up on the Main stage rather than The Outdoor

    Pretty much. I don't think it's that good of a list anyway.

    I feel like I am part of a select few on this board that doesn't really like Justice. I liked them up until about a year ago and I ultimately (finally) got tired of them. Meh....

    I don't know, the arguments for most of his choices make a lot of sense to me. Seems more realistic than half the shit being put up in the Predict the 2012 Lineup thread (although admittedly less exciting).

    LULZ, but for some reason, I really don't see Justice as a headliner as that far fetched..I mean given the last few years it might be possible.

    EDIT: someone said it already.

    Do Justice have any plans to release more material or are you guys gonna drool over the same shit that's been done for the past 5 years?

    Also, lol at the thought of them on the main stage.

    and yes.... they could indeed play the main stage. But i dont think Coachella is going to continue the trend of the past 2 years.
    Coachella 07 (the introduction), 08 (the bands), 09 (the documentary), 10 (the people i came with), 11 (the relationship test... we passed), 12 (whatever the weather, Dirty Epic forever), 13 (the year of the troll)

    I wouldn't put it past them though. They've been putting dance acts on the main stage since my first Coachella when Oakenfold played between Weezer and Jane's Addiction.

    Not sure about '99 but I remember someone saying they put DJ's on the main stage in between live bands then as well.
