But... How To Destroy Angels...
Better yet why is Muse consistently categorized as a weak headliner on this board?

Sunday: Arcade Fire, Beck, Neutral Milk Hotel, Trombone Shorty, Frank Turner, Surfer Blood, J Roddy Walston
Andre 3000 is working on his Hendrix movie and by the time that's done he would have to rush to put an album/prepare for a tour by April. Outkast isn't happening......this year.
My picks are
Lady Gaga or Beyonce
MMJ or Phoenix
Some highly respected act
NO OUTKAST/BONOBO CONFLICT
Who do you guys think would be most likely to headline with a successful new album: Phoenix, MGMT, or Vampire Weekend?
Phoenix, because I think they have had the most mainstream radio success so far. As ubiquitous as Vampire Weekend have been, I'm not sure they've even had a top ten single on the alternative or rock charts, much less the pop charts. MGMT seems content to follow their own path at this point, and I think it leads away from headlining spots at festivals.
Not sure if Big Boi is big enough to headline but with a new album on the horizon, could definitely sub headline one night in 2013.
Still hoping for an entire Outkast reunion to headline, but this would still be very rad!
RCHP also in 2007.
another album.... i personally dont think they would be headliners, but w/ names like Phoenix and Vampire Weekend being thrown around, it doesnt hurt to stir the pot a little.
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)
- PEARL JAM WHY YOU HATE COACHELLA? -
Mumford & Suns
Nope, they're probably big enough to close, I'm just throwing it very loosely out there
Gossip were on their 5th line in 2010 and they were bigger back then(not a fat joke)
wat if outkast never reunite?
GV won't book Big Boi because he plays too many Outkast songs? Are you guys are being serious?
