    I think this is wishful thinking and would love to hear any arguments purporting how they might pull this off.

    "Because it's Coachella" need not apply.
    Why does that not apply though? A significant portion of the undercard relies on bookings at major music festivals for notoriety. Why in the hell would they play at somewhere else? Coachella is one of the more desirable bookings for a lot of these acts. The headliners, subs and third line acts desire to play because it's a fat paycheck.

    He is pursuing acts to play both dates, not just one, and they seem to be way ahead of the curve in just about every aspect of the festival in comparison to years past.

    I would like to know why you think it's unrealistic. Do you realize how many bands / acts there are, that could fill out the undercard next year, for GV to choose from?

    Will there be variation? Yeah I am sure there will be a couple of acts that differ. But 20-25% of the undercard is a bit extreme. This is one of the premier music festivals in the US - if not the best overall - and you mean to tell me you think they will have problems finding acts that will commit to two weekends?

    You say you want arguments as to why we think this can work without providing any real reason for your prediction other than, "I think this is wishful thinking".

    For every band that doesn't want to do both weekends, there are plenty more that would jump at the chance.

    Agree with most of this.

    I just have my doubts about the feasibility of signing 180 plus touring acts who are going to sign off on the two-week plan. Many of these would be scrambling for the same west coast gigs during the week off or getting paid by GV to lay low for a week. Might end up with a California-heavy undercard or a dilution of talent if GV sticks to his guns to make it work his way.

    For the record, I'm not entirely against the idea of signing more bands and having week one not equal to week two. Neither weekend is going to suck.

    Ugh, seeing Skrillex on the same line as Underworld and Aphex Twin is disgusting.

    A Velvet Underground reunion even when Sterling Morrison was still alive wouldn't make for a realistic Coachella headliner.

    I'm just now seeing this thread and that 1st poster is fucking insane for edm that I like. No way shit like that will get booked unless it's all in the dome with a few in the Mojave - it's missing a lot of cheeseball edm artists.

    As far as the 2nd poster - Skrillex listed before Aphex boo.

    Speaking of which, will the dome will be back? How big were the crowds for it? It seems most of these acts I've never heard of would fit in there.

    But either way, the Sahara needs to be redeemed after Skrillex and Korn went all DERP DERP DERP in there.

    Foo Fighters > Radiohead

    I might get flack now but in 10-15 years when Foo fighters is all over classic rock radio stations, an 18 Y/O might ask "who is radiohead?"

    These new posters made me realize something I hadn't thought of before. Assuming that all bands do play both weekends, will they be all be able to do the same day each time? If not, we could still end up with a single poster, just one that lists all the acts together, rather than breaking them down into separate days. It's not like there are single-day passes anymore, so why not. Thoughts, anyone?

    Actually, playing different slots is a neat idea - it makes the prospect of going both weekends a lot more appealing and less like Groundhog Day, imo.

    Yeah its unlikely =( But there is still a slight chance. I really want to see him, but it looks like he isnt playing any shows in L.A anytime soon (hopefully I am wrong about that)
