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.

    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.

    Justice is NOT a headliner. Period... this isn't even up for debate in a logical discussion.

    i dont understand what you mean by that exactly... what classifies as a headliner in this scenario...? I mean JUSTICE already closed out the entire festival in 08, even after Roger Waters. So....

    I counter by asking you, what makes Justice a true headliner? They've made one studio album... that's it.

    nothing really makes them a headliner.. these days edm is all hype and lights. But it doesnt change the fact that theyve already performed in one of the top spots w/ only one album, so a descent sophomore would put them where....?? Sat night headliner or main stage after one of the 'true headliners'

    or like Deadmau5, the romance is over and we all move on (as far as Coachella goes), theyll still be top billing at shows and fests all over the world....

    Justice could headline the Sahara or close the mainstage, but they won't be an actual Coachella headliner unless they reach Daft Punk's level of fame.

    oh i deff agree w/ you on that... infact DP maybe the only EDM act that could classify as a 'true headliner'.

    I agree. I think they are likely to return next year, but they aren't headliner material. I think their placement depends on their demographic (which we won't really know until their album comes out). A couple years ago when I was in college you couldn't go to a fraternity party without hearing Phantom or The Party, but I think "brolectro" has turned into "brostep"...since Sahara seems to be going the Hard route in terms of booking headliners, I can see Justice on the main. But neither would surprise me.

    If the new album works out, I could see Justice as a co-headliner and end off the night like chems. I also think they could pull off a great show on the coachella main stage. Easily.

    Arcade Fire is even more lulzy than Justice.

    The beauty of Coachella is there's not really one band that can define their demographic.

    Justice has a long way to go before they're the Chemical Brothers. That having been said, I wouldn't be super shocked if they closed the main stage.

    so Atmosphere is selling out shows all over the country and has already performed at the top spot on the Outdoor in 09. So if they bring them back next year, where would they go....???

    edit: i dont know why i put this in this thread but oh well...

    There are few bands who's name on the poster would get me more excited than the Sleepy Jackson. Calling them an Empire of the Sun side project is ridiculous.

    Justice is cool but played out. Justice and AF do not represent the Coachella crowds.

    Not any one or two artists represent Coachella, your point?

    Yes, the coveted "Infected Mushroom spot."

    Yeah I'm thinking Justice and Beastie Boys for sure. Hopefully Fleet Foxes again. Florence + the machine was here so I don't think that'll happen. Adele probably also.
