    Probably the biggest wrong call I've ever made in all my years of dealing with Coachella Conflicts, other than going with Black Keys over M83 last year.
    sounds like you're were grossly misinformed about what to expect from their stage show.

    I am not going to argue the legitimacy of three questionable headliners and one lazy choice, because I agree with the general consensus. But I don't go for the sole purpose of seeing the headliners. I agree that some bigger and / or better headliners would put this lineup over the top, but I am making the choice to observe what I DO like about the lineup and there is plenty for me to be happy about.
    How many people saw Paul in 09 and are going to be there in 2013? Same with Bjork. The only people bitching would be a few people on this board about Bjork, cause I'm pretty sure everyone would be down for Paul again. But then again who knows with these people...

    I spoke to David Bowies guitar player earl slick at namm yesterday. He said coachella probably isn't going to happen and that I'd "probably have to fly to England for that."

    The history of this board will indicate that there is a massive amount of bitching about the lineup every single year after it is released. No exceptions.

    The worst part about 2004 was after I left the festival that year. I knew it could never be topped...

    Until 2008 of course and we all know how the reaction was to the line up that year.

    Radiohead was disappointing? People who think this probably just had a problem with the setlist. Not gonna lie though it was pretty average compared to the shows I saw at camden, and 'roo

    Bitching and moaning about shit headliners doesn't equate to saying Coachella is going to be awful. It just means the ceiling on the festival potential has been lowered, and that's a legitimate gripe.
    Pretty much.

    People certainly did go for Waters, Prince, and McCartney, shore. But ... hell, i'm out on the polo fields at 1pm on Friday, because a huge part of the joy of the festival is seeing the really good small bands that don't draw a large crowd; a big part of the reason i'll pay the price to go is because i get to see 8-10 bands a day and enjoy each of them. So, yeah, the 'undercard' matters a lot more to me than the headliners do, because i'm going to spend more of my time watching, listening, and dancing to the undercard.

    Is that a hipster thing? Maybe, particularly if I were snooty about it; but i'm too much of a hippie for that. some people want the big headliners. That's their thing. maybe this year is a reason to be unhappy. *shrug* but if that's not your thing, then this is a good year.

    If you buy a ticket on speculation, then you're saying that you value the benefit of having a ticket in hand more than you value the risk that you won't like the lineup. Where's the force here?

    Only to the extent that the problematic crowd waited until after the lineup announcement to buy, decided to resell the tickets they bought on presale, or just bailed on it entirely.

    Coachella should just have booked some of the bands playing at the Canyon Club in Agoura:

    With Blur headlining, I don't see why Toad the Wet Sprocket, Berlin, or even the Fantastic Diamond couldn't headline.

    The lineup should be re-shuffled:

    Divine Fits/Modest Mouse/Band of Horses should be playing on Sunday...that would fix everything for me.

    The lineup is great, but the days and font sizes are all wrong.

    If you think the lineup sucks, don't go.

    Fly wherever in the world that the band(s) and/or DJ(s) you dream of seeing are playing.

    Wanna show Coachella your dissatisfaction? Don't spend a single dollar on this event.

    Pull out those credit cards and book Glastonbury, Ultra, Redding, or whatever suits you’re fancy. There have been plenty of people on this board who have done just that and without making a big issue about it.

    Move on, let go, and take a step past Monday morning.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    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.
