    No, they're probably not disappointed at all.

    I think people talking about the whole "GV is going back to its roots", "this is a clear anti-EDM statement" etc, are over-thinking it.

    There was one dream headliner available last year (Radiohead) and none this year. All the headliners being booked by other festivals this year (McCartney, The Cure, Mumford, Springsteen, etc) were either unavailable, had recently played Coachella, or both.

    They had to promote someone to the front line and spun the rare British double-play as headline worthy. It was that or promote another band like YYYs, VW, etc. No matter what occurred, the massive ticket dump, tickets selling at 2/3 face for Weekend 2 probably would have happened - but I refuse to believe GV consciously chose to do this and it was anything different than the 2013 festival landscape.

    Of course it isn't a good outcome. I just think they probably thought the response might have been like this. Thus the 2-3 week lineup delay

    Corrected. Who knows how low weekend 2 will actually go the week of the festival. Weekend 1 is now going for about WHATEVER YOU WANT TO PAY FOR A TICKET, THANK YOU STONE ROSES. I mean, shouldn't we all feel like jackasses for worrying about whether or not we'd get a wristband before some non-existent market swooped them up in a "Sell Out?" The true burn here, aside from all of us clearly overpaying for tickets, is that it's nearly impossible to coax someone you don't know into selling you a camping pass without trading them a wristband to make sure it'll work properly. Everyone is so scared that these camping stickers are non-transferable. The whole thing is becoming the kind of hassle vacations were meant to alleviate us from. Seriously FUCK. No offense, Stone Roses fans. This has nothing to do with you. Enjoy your show, and have a nice weekend. GV... we need to have a few words in private.

    Haha! The way people are talking too true!

    I love the line up and can care less about RHCP (saw them in the 80's) and Phoenix (saw them at ACL in 09 and thought they were OK), but will be there Friday night for SR and Blur. It's going to be a fantastic weekend!

    i disagree, the stone roses and blur were coheadliners from the getgo. It was Phoenix that got the bump. Noone would be tripping as hard on the stone roses if it weren't for having phoenix headline.

    The Stone Roses/Blur
    RHCP
    The Rolling Stones (or the Smiths)

    This is what GV wanted all along.

    2. Believe that the massive ticket dump, steep plummet in demand, and tickets foing for $100-$150 under face value is do to a perceived weakness in the Friday headliner, as if a majority of people are stupid enough to not go just because there are two bands they don't like playing. This one is, admittedly, more plausible since people usually ARE stupid.

    But hey, at least you'll be able to bellyache on the forums after the fact about how shitty Friday was because of the headliner that you didn't like (seriously? I didn't see a single headliner last year and still had a fucking awesome time).

    Shithead.

    The first part of #2 is right. The majority of people interested in Coachella don't know or care about the Stone Roses. The majority of these people who have listened to the Stone Roses still think they suck. Again, no offense to Stone Roses fans, but a lot of people don't give half a shit about the band, and they know they music. It has nothing to do with how keen we are, and everything to do with the strength of the band as a headliner. Most Stone Roses fans even admit that Stone Roses don't belong as headlining this festival, which is why they're co-headlining.

    If people are as stupid as you seem to think, then why would you want to be around them/ argue with them/ share your music with them? Either you're as stupid as they are, or you're just a bitch who can't accept that some people have an honest opinion based on personal observations. When you deny any of us the expression of those opinions, it makes you the ignorant asshole. I'm sure you still won't understand, but it's not through lack of trying.

    You're dreaming. The plummeting ticket sales doesn't mean less people on the fields, less tools, and more real fans. You god damn dope. It means that more people who aren't really fans, but have $200 to spend on someone desperately looking to get rid of a wristband are going to be there. It'll be at capacity, but there will be a lot more people who don't quite give a shit. A lot more broke people. A lot more people who don't know or care about the festival. This may be the big one, kids. Hold on tight.

    This is correct. A couple of my co-workers who just want to walk around in sun dresses and see a couple EDMs acts have decided to go this week since they were offered tickets for this weekend $250. Its not the "die-hards" who are scooping up tickets at 2/3 value - its still going to be packed, only with people who care more about being seen but can now afford to just take up space instead of really care about the music.

    Lol @ Earl Sweatshirt headlining... kind of. Between Tegan & Sara, Earl (and friends, I'd hope), HTDA, and Bassnectar, I expect The Stone Roses to be QUITE THE INTIMATE MAIN STAGE SHOW.


    Whatever that means to you.
