So after watching Jack White at Lollapalooza last weekend I feel like he can headline next year.
pretty sure no doubt was locked in for 2013 when the radiohead/no doubt rumor surfaced last year.
i'd be pretty surprised if they weren't booked.
New album, world tour almost certainly coming up, fucking huge following in So Cal... They'll headline Friday and Deadmau5 will close the stage after them. Kanye/ Jay Z would almost be lazier than The Black Keys. Almost.
So, I probably shouldn't even bother to mention this because when it was first told to me I went through about a half hour of calling bullshit on the guy who told me but then again he's a partner in my company with me and he does travel in the kind of insanely rich circles where this kinda shit might come about in conversation... but I've been told that there's a real Floyd tour happening next year. Gilmour and Waters, together. FWIW.
What's the chances at
Armin Van Burren (dance headliner)
Morrissey (But this'd be great too)
Tiesto (dance headliner)
The National/Warpaint - 4/21 - Moody Theater
Mogwai - 4/24 - Emo's
Cloud Nothings/The Men - 4/26 - The Mohawk
Austin Psych Fest - 5/2 - 5/4 - Carson Creek Ranch
King Khan & the Shrines - 5/30 - The Mohawk
Cut Copy - 6/21 - Stubbs
Swans - 6/27 - The Mohawk
Boris - 7/29 - The Mohawk
Is there any real reason to suggest anyone is seriously to care about No Doubt in 2013? I'm half expecting the album to flop and they'll have to resort to being somebody else's support slot on tour next year.
They wouldn't book a 1st thought headliner that was a sub the previous year.
sahara will be boys noize LIVE
What about a possible Jack While/Eminem double headliner? a la Strokes/Kanye 2011

I don't think anybody outside of Strokes fans even considers them a "real" headliner for that year. I always forget they were even there.
Yeah I always considered Kanye to be the headliner that year. I still have no idea why The Strokes shared the top the line with him.
It was probably some sort of contractual thing that their management negotiated, possibly because they were at the top of the bill at other comparable festivals (though those festivals had more than three acts on the top line).
