    1. Download a free graphic design program, I used Gimp.
    2. Drop a Coachella poster of your choice into the program. Use the paint brush to brush out all text, and if the poster is multi-colored (like 2012), use a gradient brush and go line by line, selecting colors that are in the back of each line of font. It might look a little janky, but when you put text over it you won't really notice.
    3. Bring the poster into iPhoto. Change the tone, exposure, etc. of the blank poster until you get the color and vibe you are looking for.
    4. Next, use Word. Drop the edited photo in, and use WordArt boxes to write text on top of the Coachella photo. Use the Eurostile font, play with different sizes for different billed names, and use the "circle" from Symbols to make the dot between names.

    There you have it. Took me only a couple hours over a week to make mine, and I had never used a graphic design program before so most of that time was spent figuring out how to do certain things. If you have, it should be child's play. I was surprised how simple it was.

    I will literally get nothing done for the rest of the day. Thanks a lot.

    Have at it. Also, use the color (or closest one) of the little date boxes for the "dot" colors, as they virtually always match. And always make "the" and "and" smaller than the line font, and make sure you have the right number of Sahara acts. Blocking out the main Main/Outdoor/Sahara/night Mojave slots gave me the right "starpower" for the billed lines since I was aiming for realism, and for billing I used a combination of Last.Fm listeners and Facebook like (Last.fm for indie stuff, Facebook for Sahara cheese) but made exceptions, especially for overseas acts, rare acts, and acts that had a million+ listeners but are not really that relevant anymore (The Bravery). You'll have a blast.

    Skrillex and Aziz Ansari (the guy from Parks & Rec) over Alice Cooper
    Widespread Panic over White Stripes
    they billed The Strokes and Mumford & Sons on the 3rd line the same year Strokes co-headlined Coachella
    (billed 12th overall at roo, 4th at chella)
    of course, they billed David Bryne above Snoop Dogg (who co-headlined Coachella), Al Green, Elvis Costello. which gives even more reason to bill him lower.
    Black Keys (as a subheadliner) billed above Neil Young (and also Buffalo Springfield)
    and they billed the Beach Boys under that band that does that 'Creep' song..

    Lollapalooza:
    The Killers over Beastie Boys and over Jane's Addiction twice
    Kings of Leon over Lou Reed
    Ben Harper over Iggy & the Stooges
    Snow Patrol over Patti Smith


    i could go on and on and on...

Outdoor sunset acts are usually 3rd or even 4th lines, so the booking fits.

    Solo acts are never billed as high as the group they are most known for:
    Pulp subheadlined, but Jarvis Cocker was on the, you guessed it, third line. (not to mention Outdoor sunset)
    Gorillaz headlined, Blur was 2nd line, but Damon Albarn's The Good The Bad & The Queen was yup, third line.
    Faith No More subheadlined, but Mike Patton was on the 5th line
    Rage Against The Machine headlined, but Zach's One Day As A Lion was 4th line (& Tom Morello 6th).
    Oasis headlined, but Noel Gallagher was 2nd line (under Bon Iver and David Guetta)
    Bright Eyes subheadlined, but Conor Oberst was 3rd line

    MIA over Chem Bros, Madness third line under M83 and Amon Tobin, Buzzcocks 5th line after A$AP Rocky, Erykah Badu third line under Steve Angello, Duran Duran 2nd line under The Strokes, Sven Vath third line under Axwell, Air & Happy Mondays 2nd line over Willie Nelson & Crowded House & the Roots, Vampire Weekend billed 3rd over the Specials and Echo & the Bunnymen and Johnny Rotten's Public Image Ltd, MGMT over Devo, Lupe Fiasco 3rd line over Public Enemy's 4th line, Booker T billed 5th line under Turbonegro, Mumford & Sons billed 2nd line, over the London Suede & Big Audio Dynamite & Erykah Badu & Bright Eyes. Is Throbbing Gristle bigger than X? No. But it's a bigger get (even if it proved to not be a draw, at all).

    Jeff Mangum third line, under Miike Snow
    Lauryn Hill third line, under Interpol
    Noel Gallagher under Bon Iver
    Les Claypool 5th line, under Major Lazer, Dirty Projectors, Gossip
    Paul Weller (of The Jam) 3rd line, under Lupe Fiasco and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs
    Bob Mould (of Husker Du) 6th line, under Para One & Surkin and the Bloody Beetroots
    all solo artists known for the bands they used to perform with, all billed low.

    Leonard Cohen, 3rd line (under Franz Ferdinand). Is Eddie Vedder solo or even David Bryne bigger than Cohen? No, i wouldn't say so. You could make the case that Vedder & Byrne are bigger than the solo acts listed above (i would disagree), and I would counter that the acts listed higher than Vedder & Byrne are bigger than those acts that were listed ABOVE the above solo acts. Not to mention that they'd all be bigger draws (if not gets) than Vedder & Byrne. Be honest, how many there would give a fuck about Vedder's solo album? Or David Byrne's solo work? Everyone there would be waiting for those 2 or 3 Pearl Jam/Talking Heads songs and you know it. And the whole board would bitch how awful the set was if they didn't.

    GIL SCOTT HERON 6TH LINE AFTER THE WHITEST BOY ALIVE, LA ROUX, DJ LANCE ROCK, DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, PROXY, STEVE PORTER, LUCERO AND RA RA RIOT.

    You're taking way too much effort to respond to one comment. No one give s a fuck about your examples. Some of them are just fucking ridiculous.

    I get your sentiment. But the fact that you are a complete dolt and taking way too much effort in this discussion makes you unbearable.

    I am not nearly well enough versed in the indy rock scene to make a semi realistic poster.

    It's also Old 97's, not Old 79's and they don't have a "the" in their name.

    Oops! Thanks, I fixed the typos. There were a whole lot more before I posted it, haha.

    With The National, I'm working off the shot-in-the-dark assumption that they release a new album in early 2013.

    And yeah, Sunday's stacked, but not so much that the bigger acts don't get their prime-time spots on the right stages.

    30min is too much effort to put into a couple posts in a thread that consists wholly of fake posters created by boardies? wow. that would yield pretty shitty posters with less than 30min worth of effort. Unless you're saying that making fake posters is a waste of time. It's a much better use of time to post in a hundred different threads telling everyone they're idiots, rather than explain it in one.

    It's a much better use of time if it's short and meaningless, like all of your posts.

    Pretty Lights would definitely be higher, and I hate to say it but I think The Crystal Method would be a bit lower.

    They're about the same place they were in 2009's poster. They're certainly even less popular and less relevant now though.

    Maybe. If not it would be an exciting booking, even if just for hype's sake.

    Well, they're also not really a touring band, they're a protest group. Even if they don't go to jail, I don't think they're being let out of the country, and if they do, they're probably not coming to a big outdoor festival.

    Their radio show on Indie 103.1 was great, but other than that, nothing. There also seemed to be a long period where they were doing nothing but DJ sets for years everytime I saw them booked for something.
