10/16 Massive Attack @ Greek Theater (?), 10/18 Culture Collide, 10/26 Asobi Seksu & Slowdive @ Royale, 11/7 Warpaint @ Echoplex, 11/12 Blonde Redhead @ Fonda
Got to see them do Citizen Erased in san francisco. Outside Lands 2011
But instead of Muse, it was No Doubt.
I get what you're saying, everyone's going to play LA and do nationwide tours. Muse / Depeche Mode have played plenty of shows lately to satisfy their fan base, though, including playing a two weekend festival as headliners this fall.
So if those are two of the three names on the top of the poster, I'm just saying I would hope the third headliner would feel more exclusive/rare. That's all.
Let's just get McCartney again.
McCartney in the Yuma
That said, Bruce Springsteen, Arcade Fire, and Muse/Depeche Mode would kick major ass.
only have seen muse four times, but anyone who was at LA Rising can attest to their legendary live show status - and they didn't even headline. still pissed I missed OSL that year.
Arcade Fire? Really? Out of all the possible gets of varying rarities, you choose these dooks? I wouldn't mind seeing Muse on the bill again, since I missed them in 2010 (it was worth strolling over to the empty but open showers for an evening feelgood sesh. Oh, really? Feelgood is considered a word, but not sesh? I'm like so sure.)
I can't see Muse coming back to the Polo Fields unless they put out a really good and different album in the future. As far as I'm concerned, the Blur / Stone Roses / Phoenix picks this year is a sign that Goldenvoice has decided they can get away with making anyone a headliner (which they can,) and aren't going to make boring picks again. Admittedly, RHCP is an exception, but with all of the buzz that they were a last minute replacement, and there may be more last minute situations in the future. But I don't expect to see too many KROQ acts anymore.
A full CSNY show or Lady Gag's first proper show in over a year doing Art Pop stuff(if it's interesting) could hold some appeal even if both are stretching the Coachella demographic.
The Stones(AEG) might have some March 2014 dates in the Southern hemisphere, so maybe tack on exclusive stateside.
Gorillaz and Robin Thicke confirmed.
At least there would be dancing...
When is Timberlake going to get rid of this guy?

11 out of 21 songs were from the last two albums (what is that, bee, 55%?). but you're right, the newer songs do sound so much better live. and their stage production was ridiculous.
Here's a phone photo:
arctic monkeys will always be a possibility and we all know they are capable of headlining.
AM's Coachella billing hasn't changed since 2007. They haven't gotten any bigger.
It would still be a lot more entertaining than Arcade Fire headlining.
when does monkish or whatever start updating her blog?
When we have a few more names "confirmed"
