Thread: Predict The 2014 Headliners A Year In Advance

    If Nine Inch Nails and Depeche Mode are both actually locked down, then I think the third is absolutely going to be somebody with a mainstream edge. I would imagine that having two headlining bands with a darker sound, whose heyday was in the past (although both are still relevant and have big fanbases), means that GV will try to balance it out. There is no "formula", but I've generally found the headliners to be pretty balanced in terms of mood, fanbases, and genre.

    I love The National, but them headlining is the same to me as when people suggested that My Morning Jacket were big enough to headline a couple years ago. Stone Roses aside, no radio play ever means no headliner. They are the definition of a Coachella first subheadliner, a la The Black Keys 2011, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, LCD Soundsystem, etc.

    I don't think Daft Punk will be there. Just because.

    NIN/Depeche/Timberlake, NIN/Depeche/deadmau5, or NIN/Depeche/Mumford sounds like the right type of mix, although I'm not saying any of those are likely either.

    Curveball headliner: Foster the People. They're bigger than Stone Roses, and probably Phoenix as well. As long as that new album is out when promised

    Foster the Ppl can subheadline if the xx could. It would probably be dumb, but it could happen.

    I will seriously throw up if Justin Timberlake was ever announced as headlining Coachella. It's just wrong on every level.

    I agree 100 percent but for me the more I watch people like JT (on SNL) or Adam Levine sp? on TV, the more I like a lot of "stars" after seeing them a bit more out of their normal element.. I know this is a music fest but I like "stars" that act like your neighbors ... I guess that makes sense.. cr****

    We live in a world where Pitchfork provides full coverage of anything JT does, where Beyonce headlined Glastonbury two years ago, and where every indie blog tripped themselves to post a Mariah Carey single two weeks ago.

    Mainstream pop music -- especially any mainstream pop music with high concept pretensions -- is as culturally cool right now as it is commercially popular. A mainstream pop Coachella headliner, likely either Timberlake or Beyonce, is probably an inevitability in the near future.

    Everything is a reaction to a reaction. When dismissing the mainstream became en vogue, the mainstream must be embraced again.

    For some reason, I have a feeling that neither Depeche Mode nor Nine Inch Nails will play next year.

    Well, also some of it is also quite enjoyable. Good music is not solely the province of bands nobody has ever heard of.

    Besides, Coachella has booked plenty of pop/mainstream acts before, just none that were rooted in the pop/dance/R&B genres.

    That's a fair point. The artists I singled out are no less "pop" than Jack Johnson or the Killers at the end of the day. It's the R&B/Dance aspect that's new.

    I'm not necessarily opposed to this. JT would be a better hypothetical headliner than many we've actually had.

    I'd take JT over the generic/shitty "modern rock" act any day of the week.

    The definition of "modern rock" seems to be shifting from post-grunge butt to watered down "indie".

    No, you would welcome it. While everyone is watching JT, you would be five-deep at a much better show in a tent.

    DM has a decent shot, but it would be their 8th and 9th California show on this tour cycle, 10th if you count the Kimmel mini set.

    The window for NIN to announce their LA area shows to happen before October 10th or so should be closed in 3-4 weeks. *They are apparently touring the US in late 2013.

    A Perfect Circle --->Animal Collective -----> Kanye West

    Queens of the stone age ---> Nine Inch Nails --->Chemical Brothers (late night mainstage closer)

    the National ----> Mumford&sons ----- Arcade Fire



    Reason I believe Kanye is on friday is because his name will be at the top of the poster duh

    IMO, the (*) acts would be too soon to repeat so high on the poster, Arcade have a have played Coachella on every album with unique sets. I doubt M&S would accept 2nd billing, and even National might need higher placement.

    JW subbed at Outside Lands in 2012. LG is curious because if it's her first show back it will be a VERY big deal, her Feb 2013 injury usually takes a year for 100% recovery.
