Feel horrible for you aswell. I am over it needed to vent. The line-up is pretty shallow.......... gonna be checking out a whole lotta bands that I would otherwise just walk right by. I still have Bassnectar, Puscifer, Pretty Lights, Wu-Tang, Descendents, Dropkick Murphys.............. and few others. Drugs and Sun will help.
brilliant undercards, like every year. it lacks a bit of a wow moment, but its really packed with tons of names, so all good
speaking of headliners, its the weakest in the history of this festival i think. both in terms of ticket selling power and creative booking.
but this is Coachella, so will go again, both weekends, as always
Just want it on record that this lineup blew me away. Haven't been this excited since 08 10. I agree with the whole headliner thing, although I think Friday couldn't be more perfect if you tried, also not really that surprised or angry about Phoenix headlining(IMHO the yyy should swap places with the XX or Grizzly Bear).
[QUOTE=kurtchel;2636874]I was prepared to go regardless of the lineup, but the headliners changed my mind. They are fine, but in no way are they headline material (maybe RHCP at a different festival). Blur wasn't headline material at the height of their popularity! And most people have no clue who the Stone Roses are, especially people under 25.
You are exactly what's been wrong with Coachella the last several years.
I mean, derp de derp derpity, amirite?
The Headliners this year are so bad that Stubhub.com:
1) Didn't even list Blur
2) must have never heard of the Stone Roses because they are calling them The Stone Sour Roses
Look at it yourselves:

Selling your ticket is hardly an option if you don't live in a populated area of SoCal or neighboring states.
That said, I'm very happy with the acts booked. Just wish they could bump some inevitable conflicts over to the relatively barren Sunday.
But most importantly, I desperately hope they reschedule some acts. I just know there will be some extremely tough decisions Friday daytime and Saturday evening, followed by... well at least I'll get an early start recovering Sunday.
Friday: Outkast, The Knife, Broken Bells, Jagwar Ma, Dum Dum Girls, Wye Oak, Caravan Palace, The Glitch Mob, Woodkid
Saturday: MGMT, Fatboy Slim, CHVRCHES, Washed Out, Future Islands, DARKSIDE, Banks, Bear Hands, Galantis, Warpaint, Mogwai, Nas, Temples
Sunday: Arcade Fire, Beck, Disclosure, Little Dragon, Chance the Rapper, STRFKR, Aluna George, Flight Facilities, J Roddy Walston
Oneohtrix Point Never (2/7)
Four Tet (3/7) / Voices from the Lake (live) (3/7)
London Grammar (3/25)
Factory Floor (4/15)
2 oz blended whiskey
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1/2 tsp powdered sugar
1/2 slice lemon
Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.
I'm still waiting for someone to explain to me how a RHCP triple dip was a better booking than Neil Young & Crazy Horse.
And RHCP was absolutely not a better book than Neil Young. That said, Neil Young could not do his show in the time constraints provided to the average Coachella headliner. Neil is absolutely a better choice though, and I'm sure the Red Hots would agree with that estimation. However, RHCP would probably draw more people.
FUCK THIS STUPID ASS THREAD! FUCK OFF GO HOME!
