The list that will be more important is the annual rumors and confirmations thread, which should get started sometime in October/November, as soon as those things are a bit more concrete.
new EP out now....
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)

Have Franz Ferdinand give any concrete time line for the album they've been playing this summer?
GOLDENVOICE are the promoter on the Smashing Pumpkins arena tour.
The tours LA area appearance will be on/around October 15, which is exactly 6 months before Coachella, which has been used as a radius clause in the past. The pumpkins are touring on their best album since Adore or even Mellon.
It's not better than Machina or Adore. I'd love to see the pumpkins at coachella though.
And even if they were booked, would Billy Corgan agree to take anything less than a headlining slot?
I can see it now... Smashing Pumpkins playing at the Agua Caliente during one of the weekends for all the people who didn't get tickets!
What a consolation prize! Sorry you couldn't score a ticket to Coachella... but hey... you get to go see one of the shittiest live acts ever instead!
so is this the thread for this year?
okay. well then. fiona apple will be playing 2013.
I think Edward Sharpe, Phoenix, Pretty Lights, BigGigantic, Das Racist, Crystal Method, XX, Mau5, Atmosphere, Tyler, Cat Empire, Rebelution, Grizzly Bear, Panda Bear are some good guesses...Skrilly is gonna be there, if he's not i'll be (pleasantly) surprised- same with Aoki and the like for the ravey boppers' name recognition
Cudi, Matisyahu, Pepper would be really cool. Two Door Cinema Club and Tallest Man on Earth would be great returners
I'd just like to mention that the idea of 'Skrilly' headlining would make me vomit. I would rather slam my dick in a car door.
That is all. Carry on.
I think Matt and Kim would make for a good subheadliner. I saw them at the 'roo in 2011 and my friend who had never heard of them before became a fan after their set. They have the new album "Lightning" coming out and I really like their new single "Now."
Matt and Kim are still a fourth-line act at best.

Missed them in the Do Lab this year, but Two Fingers would be great with there album out in a month.
I'm not an expert at judging which artists go where on the lineup so instead of "subheadliner" I guess I should have just said "somewhere on lineup."
