I agree Kasabian will probably be mainstage... but they wont play as late as you think. And if Noel plays the mainstage, it will be before Bon Iver.
For the record, Noel Gallagher doesn't play Champagne Supernova at his shows.
But he closes with Don't Look Back in Anger, which he did sing in Oasis, and that is all that should matter to you anyhow.

Actually if we assume Radiohead is bringing some kickass, potentially new lighting (anybody know anything about this?) which will likely require substantial time to get set up, it could potentially go something like this:
Noel Gallagher 8:55-9:45
Bon Iver 9:45-11:00
or with bon iver and noel swapped... i dunno which... I would say Neol's status should guarantee him a mainstage slot but I would have said the same thing about Thom Yorke
I am Very worried that sub focus and flylo will b on at the same time. This concerns me deeply seeing as they may b the only 2 acts i really care about that day
Noel Gallagher isn't Jeff Mangum. He's not getting a silent main stage or a set time that long.

2001 ~ 2007 ~ 2010 ~ 2011 ~ 2012
Bon Iver will be on the main stage before Radiohead. Accept it already.
I think trying to plan this day with no conflicts is impossible, and ends up with some weird times, like fIREHOSE on the Outdoor at night, or Squeeze & Buzzcocks in the Mojave during the day (all three bands seem to me like possible early-afternoon Main/ late-afternoon Outdoor/ evening Mojave/ late Gobi) - trying to keep acts with similar fan bases from conflicting is impossible simply because this day is just too crowded with them - so i think the day needs to be approached in a different way.
Looking at recent lineups, many acts conflicting with the headliner are the kind of rare/specialty acts with devoted fans that wouldn't miss them for anyone (Fever Ray, Whitest Boy Alive, The Presets, Scissor Sisters, Throbbing Gristle...) - sure, a lot of people with a vague interest in Fever Ray ended up elsewhere, but for those of us in masks, nothing could have prevented us from being in that tent - same thing from the crowd I saw after wandering away from Kanye and discovering the Presets. So I think the whole "____ is a rare act and will not conflict with the headliner" is kind of BS - if anything, it seems more likely
so, are there any bands this day that people would actually skip Radiohead for? I for one would have to begrudgingly skip Radiohead for GY!BE, and there wouldn't even be a question if there were a RH/Mangum conflict. And I have friends that would be fine skipping RH for Squeeze or fIREHORE. Is there anything else?
Why is Whitest Boy Alive considered a rare act?
ugh...Grouplove wont be on that early. 230 or 3pm sounds right.
I feel like if SBTRKT plays the Gobi it'll be a later spot, perhaps where Godspeed is
Worst choice ever. lol. Who the fuck misses Fever Ray for Deadmau5!?
The Knife: 4/9 @ Fox Theater
Coachella: 4/11-13 @ Empire Polo Fields
I'll switch Godspeed and SBTRKT
Please put Flying Lotus to an earlier time while you're at it.
