    If you think he's being serious, then something is clearly wrong with you. The rest of us know something is wrong with you. We were waiting for the realization to catch up with you, but I had to go and ruin the surprise. Woops.

    It speaks volumes of them, doesn't it? I'm one of the only pieces of shit on this board who doesn't have a hole-littered brain from meth/ e use. Go figure, it's all they can come up with when trying to do me bad. Almost like meth abuse leaves you calling other people meth heads when you can't build your torts properly. Glad you could LOL, as I was being sarcastic (twat).

    Interesting point. They clearly scrimped on the headliners, and even though there are more bands overall and a quality undercard, there really aren't many acts that would be considered bigger-payday types. They either made a conscious decision to cut back the talent budget and scrape as much profit as possible out of the overwhelming demand and guaranteed sellout, or they were stuck in a situation where they just couldn't get any of the bigger names they wanted. Or maybe the latter reality convinced them to accept the former, if they didn't think the big-paycheck bands available were worth the money or would add much value to the festival.

    This is going to be an embarrassment for both GV and the bands themselves when they realize what a dud Friday night turns out to be. 4 straight hours of prime-time main-stage real estate wasted on bands that should be on the Outdoor or Mojave. You'll have a few thousand Brits and other various furriners, a few thousand die-hard Muricans, and then tons of empty green grass. Putting aside my opinion of both bands as boring and pedestrian, it's poor form for the festival to have a sparsely populated lackluster crowd on the main stage for that peak period.

    Imagine the crowd for Dre/Snoop or Radiohead, and then divide that by 10.

    I have respect for Blur and the Stone Roses, and think GV had every right to book them, but this is sort of correct. The headlining crowd is going to be small. I predict they close the outdoor a la Pulp last year to at least funnel people over there.

    If this is a way of weeding out the morons that go just for the mega-huge headliners, I'm all for it... I'd rather be around people who appreciate all aspects of the lineup.

    YYY's and Modest Mouse should close the mainstage with Blur and Stone Roses closing out the Outdoor. Guarantee the YYY's will have a bigger crowd than both of the Brits.

    Modest Mouse is clearly the headliner for Friday. I don't think I've ever been so excited to ditch the "headliner" for the real deal. Britchella just isn't working for me. I'll listen to a couple more Blur records in their entirety, but I will still very likely not be there to see the live. I'm not much of a Radiohead fan, but even I had to stand there and watch them. Stone Roses/ Blur? Fuck that. I'm glad you guys who like them are happy and getting excited for their sets, but I would suck Coachella's tits off for a real headliner on Friday of Weekend 2. Now, does anyone else wonder how YYYs got such high standing for this? They basically blew last time they were at Coachella, and haven't released anything of note since. Is this how it works? As long as you technically exist four years later, you will be bumped up? Beyonce and JT should have headlined Friday/ Saturday. Someone had to take it there. WHY, GV? WHYYYYYYYY?!?!?! Ah, fuck it. I'll check out whoever is still playing when MM finish their set.

    The headliners almost don't matter. And I am sure most of the bands I want to see will play Coachella West aka the FYF festival in August.

    Goldenvoice has balls for putting Blur and the Stone Roses at the top of the bill and should be commended for it. As the biggest, most prestigious fest in the US, they have that power to define what is a headliner.
    Glastonbury has been doing it for years (although not so much lately), and Coachella should have done it last year with Pulp or, although I hate them, Swedish House Mafia.

    Blur already has the track record to ease any concerns that they won't be a flop like Jack Johnson or Glasto's Happy Mondays or Shalespear's Sister.

    This is spot on and I hope that Goldenvoice continues to do this in the future.

    This. The lineup is awesome. RHCP are less than desirable. Do you think the two weekend Coachella is interfering with the process of locking down solid headliners (Sat/Sun)?

    Given the choice, I'd take a commercially weaker but musically legit headliner over something popular but horrible if someone like Daft Punk can't get their shit together.

    while this did cross my mind, and I see your point, Coachella isn't Glasto.

    Coachella got to expand to 2 weekends because of all the EDM fucktards and attention for grabbing HEADLINERS like RATM, Prince, Radiohead, Kanye & Dr. Dre. we did see them take bands such as the Black Keys & Arcade Fire and make them headliners, which works when you also have such acts as Radiohead & Dre on the bill.

    plain and simple, if they want to be like Glasto, fine, but make it one weekend again. don't be greedy and get 2 weekends worth of money out of people for acts that can be seen on tour this year pretty much everywhere. the WOW factor is what made Coachella special, and is what will keep it 2 weekends if it lasts...

    edit - and RHCP...fuck ALL logic for them. not good, played everywhere, just lazy...it's gotta be their last shows or some shit

    It's already become the new Glasto. The hype, rumors, media attention, artwork, scramble for tickets, the rite of Passage status, and the value of "the experience" over the music for so many in attendance.

    GV didn't make Arcade Fire a headliner in 2011; they already were by 2010. Well, they were a de facto headliner in 2008, if that's what you mean.

    The counter argument to this is that 2011 was the event that convinced them they had the demand for 2 weeks in the first place, and they had...who exactly? Kanye who is huge but incredibly divisive, and then Arcade Fire/KOL/Strokes which, without Kanye, is about as exciting as this year's headliners. And the "EDM fucktard" draws were two solo members of SHM before SHM was even that popular, and what, Shpongle? The big rare reunions were a disco punk group with one album and the Mexican version of the Cure?

    Don't get me wrong, I absolutely loved 2011's lineup, but it's not like that was some gigantic mainstream extravaganza. 2012 was an anomaly with the big name EDM acts, which was speculated as a ticket selling hedge in case two weekends failed. Anybody who is demanding that type of lineup can only look to, oh, I don't know, every other year ever to see that was the exception, not the rule.
