    Default Who is 2012's obvious headliner?

    Every year for the past few we've had one artist that we've been able to peg as a headliner waaaaay in advance...

    2009: The Killers
    2010: Muse
    2011: Arcade Fire

    Think this year we'll have another? I'm saying Coldplay.

    To be fair, we had a tip on Arcade Fire, and there was still a huge, huge amount of pissing and arguing and insisting otherwise anyway, so I don't know if you could call that obvious. I think that one only became inarguable well after the lineup was actually announced.

    They still ended up being the most discussed headliner in the months leading up to the lineup released, just as much as Muse or The Killers had beforehand, if not more. Even without the tip people wouldn't shutup about them.

    I like the lesser known headliners. Keep it cheap goldenvoice and find some better headliners. The Lolla lineup sucks, don't replicate it with Coldplay or Foo Fighters please.

    Both Arcade Fire and The Strokes played Lolla last year and I have a feeling we'll get another headliner from them next year so I'd guess either Foo Fighters or Coldplay. Leaning towards Coldplay though since the timing of their new album should be closer. Could also see My Morning Jacket being the first subheadliner on a day and still hoping we get A Perfect Circle too.

    It's all good, I have faith GV wouldn't put something so lame together. Although knowing they could easily drop that and coachella would still sell out in one day is a scary thought.

    Coachella will sell out before the line-up is announced.

    the same could be said about BB (not my opinion)

    and its going to be Pearl Jam
    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)
