Daft WILL not play ANYWHERE until the release a new album. If they release a new album in the next 6 months then we've got a shot. But if not, dont even waste your breath.

one can dream
I would welcome Muse after three years from their last headline billing, but maybe I'm in the minority. Phoenix will headline next year with a new album slated for later this year.
I'ma ball at the mall shuttin' down the sea wall
For 2013 Coachella adds a 4th festival day for one time only
Thursday Night: Pearl Jam (to kick of 20th anniversary of Polo Fields being used for concerts)
Friday Night: Daft Punk
Saturday Night: No Doubt
Sunday Night: Outkast
Reading through here it definitely sounds like I'm NOT in the minority on who I think the headliner favorites are:
Sa: Daft Punk
Su: Pearl Jam
Menik, I hope you really hate Tool and that's the band you are not excited about because I would love to see Tool and I think they'd be a fine first 3-time headliner. But there are obviously soooo many possibilities right now that it's almost ludicrous to start thinking about it. The past few years I've seen one headliner and I'd like for there to be one headliner next year I want to see.
Acts I really hope don't headline next year:
Green Day (more than anyone....and it seems like a real possibility...sigh)
Springsteen (could live with it but I personally can't stand him)
Can we at least get a changed website or something before we all jump on the Daft Punk train again this year?
Here's my new headliners btw:
Friday: Boards of Canada
Sunday: My Bloody Valentine(debuting new LP)
