    Smile No More Repeat Headliners!!!

    Huge talent pool of headliners out there. No Chillis. No Rage. No Tool. No need to rehash the past.

    I love how bowie and daft punk are mentioned in every thread the past four years. Like it's going to make them any more likely. If a tree falls in a forest and only one man is there to hear it, will he get a handjob from david bowie?

    Did anyone really give a shit about Daft Punk before the Coachella show? Really..

    It was a moment in time that cant be duplicated.

    I think so, shit I wouldn't doubt coachellla sells out without announcing headliners a week before the fest. People are buying tickets for 2 weekends 7 months before the lineup is even out. But you're probably right these guys most likely wont headline Im sure crowd favs like Foo Fighters, Coldplay and Daft Punk will headline.

    So a band can play at coachella and come back to headline but when they headline they are basically exiled no matter how relevant they remain or how much new material they have?

    As much as I love them both, neither would be a headliner.

    I really don't understand the obsession with headliners, the subs and small font bands are what make Coachella great.

    Yes, with sparklz!

    On the topic: Why? Are you only allowed to see an awesome band once and then its a ruined experience after that? Despite all the music out there, there is only so much that a large population can agree upon.


    Obligatory tangent on DP: I was one of many LONGTIME fans who were maybe too young to see ALIVE 97 (12 then), I couldn't stop talking about DP once I saw them on the line up and I'm sure there were tons of people like myself who dragged their friends to DP on that fateful night. From then on, my friends thought I was cool. Now I get LED handjobs. Its like the Hamburger Helper is suckin me off.

    I guess I'm out of touch. I had no idea Incubus sells out stadiums or that RHCP were still relevant. I would just think a band like Wilco with a big die-hard following and 2 of the best albums from the 00's could fill the headline depending on strength of the other top bands. Hey maybe Jack Johnson or the Killers are available again.

    Real question: Are Radiohead and The Cure the only two bands to headline Coachella more than once?

    many bands played before they finally headlined, too: Muse, Arcade Fire, KoL, Killers, Kanye, Strokes, Black Keys. recycling can be a good thing.
