    Default Who will headline Coachella 2012?

    Be honest. This is not who you want to headline, this is who you actually think will headline.

    Please pick three

    Someone explain the logic behind RHCP headlining AGAIN.

    I think the days of the same old repeat headliners are over. Maybe one, but we won't see those lineups like 2007 where everyone is a repeat.

    Paul is really into booking acts who have grown up with the festival...look at the last 3 years: The Killers, Muse, Arcade Fire. Headliners are likely to be repeats, but not repeat headliners.

    Also, I think the 2 day format is going to force/allow bigger, more mainstream headliners. I can't picture Bjork headlining again. I think we might see some of those types of acts become the new subheadliners, perhaps offering an alternate closing act on the Outdoor Theatre for the hardcore Coachella fans.

    I'm not saying none of these acts will play. I just can't imagine a lineup that works if these are the only headliner choices.

    Which previous Coachella acts can return and get promoted to headliner? Obviously Daft Punk. Maybe Phoenix if their next album is a hit (2013?). Florence + the Machine, Justice, Vampire Weekend, Blur, Pulp (well, Jarvis performed solo in 07...) would all be second line acts.

    Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Franz Ferdinand will be due for another album and round of touring next year but I don't think either has gotten bigger since 2009.
    9/10 Swans @ Roxy, 9/18 Neutral Milk Hotel & Daniel Johnston @ Hollywood Bowl, 9/19 Tokimonsta @ El Rey, 9/30 Cibo Matto @ the Roxy, 10/3-4 Desert Stars, 10/9 Zola Jesus @ El Rey, 10/16 Massive Attack @ Greek Theater, 10/22-25 CMJ, 10/26 Asobi Seksu & Slowdive @ Royale

    You have a point, although a better argument is that my two points are kind of opposed. If we are going to have "bigger, more mainstream headliners", we aren't going to be having someone like The Killers again.

    Based on the amount of fawning posts here and on Facebook, many might say My Morning Jacket could headline, but I wouldn't be one of them. Concertgoer probably has the only viable answer.

    I don't know, who's to say what a "headliner" is? Paul McCartney vs Jack Johnson? Please. It's all relative. I think my negativity towards this list is that I'm in denial that RHCP were ever a viable headliner. I saw them 20 years ago and the opening acts blew them away. Of course, they were Nirvana and Pearl Jam, but that doesn't change the fact that RHCP were already past their prime.

    Interesting. The section in question:

    He said this year's lineup isn't skewing young, like this year's festival, or old, like the 2008 and 2009 festivals.
    “It's all over the map,” he said. “I don't ever set out going for a specific — old or younger. Once you start getting one or two (acts), you start seeing where the show is going to go.”
    There are bands he's nurtured at past festivals and he said there may be a reunion act, although it won't be a focus of the festival, such as the Buffalo Springfield set at Bonnaroo this summer.
    So at least one newer act and one older act, and at least one reunion act on the second line.

    If The White Stripes wouldn't have broken up I would throw them in there as a legit headliner.

    I'm surprised at how few people have said Rad Hot Chili Peppers. Their California sound is perfect for Coachella. Plus they haven't toured in so long.

    Rad Hot Chili Peppers would be a better fit at lollapalooza. I pray GV doesn't book them ever again.

    They aren't on tour, they just headlined 4 years ago, their guitarist quit, and you're saying they should be seriously considered because they sing about California, and that's where Coachella is? Good reasoning.
