Lil' Wayne & Drake
I'ma ball at the mall shuttin' down the sea wall
Madonna is going to shut down Coachella and show us her new "18 yr old vagina"; they will do a duet of like a virgin 830pm-1145pm Main Stage Saturday
The Killers & Muse are both too soon (as are Arcade Fire, for that one person who mentioned them). And if that Rolling Stone article said it took 4 months for the 2Pac hologram to be completed, and it was debuted on April 15, then it could have been conceived and brought to fruition entirely after Dr. Dre & Snoop got added to the lineup in lieu of Black Sabbath.
I don't think Foo Fighters would be a good fit next year due to what Miror Noir said -- they've played everywhere these last couple of years, and are a second-tier headliner at Outside Lands. How would that look for Coachella to have an act that's not even among the top 3 names at a mid-tier fest like OSL one year be one of their top 3 acts the following year? That being said, I would like for them to return eventually since I'm not going to pay what it would cost to see them on their own.
I also don't think we're going to see our first threepeat headliner (meaning no Tool, Bjork, or Red Hot Chili Peppers) for a couple more years unless next year is really weak for touring acts that could headline. Tool & RHCP would be too similar a booking to Pearl Jam, so unless PJ declined the offer to play (they wouldn't really be excluded from consideration again, would they?), I can't see them being on the lineup.
Would No Doubt & Pearl Jam be too similar a booking, or do they appeal to a different enough audience that they both could play the same year? I think one of them will be there next year along with Yeah Yeah Yeahs (well, assuming they're even working on an album -- it'll have been 4 years since they played Coachella) and somebody from left field. Maybe Black Sabbath to make up for this year's cancellation? Coachella has recycled a previous year's Lolla headliner before (Arcade Fire), so it wouldn't be without precedent.
I could see Green Day being day one headliner, and aren't they coming out with 3 albums one right after another really soon?
Why would anyone want My Morning Jacket to headline? They are awful.
Also OutKast for 2013 Sunday headliner please!!
IT'S MY NEW COACHELLA 2013 MIX! 60 of this years artists in only 45 minutes!
Hello my name is Johnny Polite and they are going to kill me...
Burning Hotels 1.14 | The Kills 1.23 | Adam Ant 2.7 | Girls 3.9 | Dr. Dog 3.11 | Neon Indian 3.13 | Andrew Bird 3.15| Band of Skulls 3.17
Stones = U2 = Zeppelin-1 = too big 4 chella
U2 isn't going to be doing anything next year. By all accounts, they're taking a lengthy break now. And probably figuring out what they want to do going forward: 1) an Achtung or ATYCLB-style narrative reshuffling for a new decade, 2) become the next incarnation of the Stones (settle on being comfortable with the idea of being a tribute band to their earlier glories . . . which they've kinda been doing since 2004 anyway), or 3) follow R.E.M.'s path. As a fan, I'm hoping 1 is possible. If not, I'd like 3. My fear is that 2 is far too lucrative.
Idol snake, get out of that skin.
Sorry but Portishead wouldn't headline. Where's the buzz for them?
