    Default 2013: The Year Without Headliners

    I mean, whatever. I was never going for the headliners. But it's still striking to me how weak the four we got are - of them I can only really consider Red Hot Chili Peppers a viable option.

    What happened here?

    rhcp seems like a choice if you had no other choices possible

    these guys below would have. And there is a bunch of nasty cartoon porn on Yahoo images when you type in "what the hell king of the hill". Some real low down perverts out there.

    P.S. The vietnamese mom with Dale Gribble?

    P.S.S. Bobby and Dale's native indian son DP-ing the blond cousin. F-in hell.

    And at the same time rhcp is the crappiest they could have picked.

    I personally would have preferred someone other than (2007 headliner) RHCP, but I suppose their last 6 albums have all reached the top 4 in the US charts and they have 25 singles that went top 10 on the US Alt chart. But not exactly current & relevant nor quite legends.

    Phoenix? 1 album that ever charted in the US (#37) and 3 singles that showed up anywhere here, but at least current & have the hope of their new album.

    Blur + Stone Roses though? No albums or singles ever in US top 45. Not current, not legends, almost no US success in their day, not reuniting for the first time in ages or anything. Putting the 2 of them together doesn't solve those problems.

    Pretty happy with the rest, but top headliners do seem a bit thin.

    It is pretty fucking crazy. Borderline madness even. That's why I love this festival.

    i agree. paul tollett has just gone out of the way with his sometimes retarded love for the brit bands that mean shit in the USA
    i truly respect that, he is a music fan and thats great, but this now is just a bit too much
    i would understand if its an exclusivity thing, but its just the opposite, both blur and the stone roses played last year or will play this year every shitty fest in the world, so cant count on the brits traveling to coachella to see them
    and in the US - these 2 bands are club level acts

    I feel like they adopted the Sasquatch Festival way of booking. Get every top mid-card act you can and pick a couple to put on the top line in large font.

    This year it's an ensemble effort instead of relying on 3 "huge" acts to tow the boat

    I'm English and I was shocked that blur and the roses are headlining, I thought they'd be there , but never headlining. Lot of people might not know their music , but one thing both bands will do is put an amazing live show on. I'm sure there will be enough Europeans , Australians to make the night a proper atmosphere.

    Neil Young & Crazy Horse would have been a wiser choice.

    Johnny Marr is playing Friday and the main stage will be a Manchester love fest. Laying the groundwork for 2014?

    I also think you underestimate the number of Brits and other international fans that fly in, especially for W1.

    Definitely the most underwhelmed that I've felt looking at a lineup drop. I'm not sure if it is because of the lack of solid headliners or if it is because pretty much every "wow" act was already revealed through other sources or fests getting bands or were expected. I was laughed at by a few people last year when I said that the XX and Vampire Weekend would be subs in 2013, and now I am almost disappointed to see them at 2 and 3 on their respected days. I guess the biggest "surprises" for me are New Order and Modest Mouse. Didn't expect them so I guess that's cool.

    And if RHCP closes out the fest, it'll be an early night in for a lot of people in the campgrounds.

    The xx would have been as big as headliner as Blur or The Stone Roses... Really weak headliners imo amazing lineup though.

    It's all about the money. GV did not want to shell out big bucks for big acts knowing that it would sell out anyways.

    Stones did $8 million in tickets sales PER GIG in December.

    There's no proof of Bowie/Daft/NIN having touring activity this year and I doubt the Stones do any Festival.

    I am still baffled by Blur/Stone Roses just because I do not think the average American knows their stuff. For many people at the festival, they will only know one song (Song 2) between those two headliners, and many of them will not even know it is a Blur song. I had Blur as a #2 and Stone Roses in the Mojave/Outdoor in my head.

    Phoenix is sort of weak, but they are very popular and have had more commercial success with singles than, say, Arcade Fire, so I'm not necessarily hating on them. This new album needs to be pretty big though.

    RHCP...we all hate them, but this is a huge band.

    Anyway, the headliners made me depressed for about 30 seconds when I saw the lineup, but everything else below that is pure gold.

    Who gives a fuck about huge names when you have a lineup with this much diverse talent!?

    I've never gone to Coachella specifically for the headliners, and this year will be no different.

    But Blur/ Stone Roses is definitely a weird Friday night headliner combo for a U.S. festival.

    I am glad someone else compared this to Sasquatch. Because this years lineup could be slapped on a Sasquatch poster and no one would be the wiser.

    Note: this is not a bad thing

    FWIW, pretty sure it's the first and possibly only reunion show for both bands in the US.

    "Oh shit, Daft Punk/The Rolling Stones just fucked us over! Quick! Find a name that people recognize but haven't been relevant in years!"

    That is exactly how the conversation in GV went.

    every year I'm a bit disappointed at the lineup...this year not as much, but understand once you start researching the bands....there are always awesome groups you've never heard of that you'll become a fan of once you see them live at Coachella.

    I don't get caught up in the initial feeling of the lineup release....because I know even if the sesame street band was the headliner I always have a blast at the festival.
    Just when I think you couldn't possibly be any dumber, you go and do something like this…and totally redeem yourself!

    Honestly, I just don't get why they would go with RHCP over Pearl Jam. It makes zero sense. The only explanation would be an irrational one, ie. Goldenvoice has a grudge against Eddie Vedder for trying to taking legal action against ticket master.
