    Because they are both huge headliners? Other than radiohead what act would bring a larger crowd to a festival?

    hate to say i told you so but i fucking told you so. These guys had NO business headlining mainstage.
    THEY ARE CO-HEADLINERS!!! The switch was going to happen either way, didn't any of you see the original flyers? Stop trying to create stories.

    From that same article...

    UPDATE, 4/18/13, 1:30 P.M.: A rep for Goldenvoice, which produces Coachella, tells Rolling Stone that the time swap was always part of the festival's plan, as the Stone Roses and Blur are billed as co-headliners on the poster.

    BTW, Who the fuck cares? Go see the band you want to see and enjoy. Bonus if it's a really cool band that rarely tours.
    Who wants to see some cheesy-ass overplayed headliner anyway? If YOU do, then I think you're at the wrong festival.

    Try and sit through this...particularly 1:55 to end. Pretty clear why Bilbo was so pissed off: Without thousands of drunken Brits singing along to cover up his karaoke vocals, he's laid bare for all to laugh at.



    May be time for Golden Voice to go around to Palm Springs high schools giving out free wristbands on the condition that you show up to the SR set. Perhaps cages to keep the kids there when they try to flee.

    I would choose Stone Roses over HTDA almost every time. When else am I going to see the Stone Roses, for fuck's sake? (other than W1 or W2)

    I pondered this but in the end I didn't see Stone Roses because I was tired and realized I didn't give a shit. Should I make the effort to see something I don't care about just because I've only got one chance to? Nah.

    FEW. they were not headliners. plain and simple. whether GV likes it or not, presales are not selling out because of the fucking Stone Roses headlining.

    They were confirmed an hour before the lineup came out and had been in talks "for months" prior to that.

    If you're not a fan, don't go see them, obviously.

    If you thought The Stone Roses were pissed with the weekend 1 crowd, then just wait until tomorrow night. I just don't see how Reni is going to dodge all the glow sticks being thrown at him. Yet another black eye on the face of Brit-kind.

    Last Friday, the 12th, was the biggest the Stone Roses have ever been, and will ever be, internationally. I hope you guys got your souvenir mugs, because that band is over. And a kiss from Kenickie is like a Hallmark card, still, after all these years.

    I can't believe people are still twisted about the Stone Roses headlining?

    Did not seeing the headliner ruin your evening? Get fucked.

    Were Tegan and Sarah not epic enough?

    anyone who saw Grinderman -> HTDA gives no fucks about what happened, or didn't, on the main stage.

    Number one reason for Modest Mouse NOT headlining: They're fucking sick looking junkies. Is this your way of crying over the Stone Roses thread outliving your piece of shit petition to get Modest Mouse headlining the rehab tent thread? That keyboardist has less than two years to live. I'm glad we all got to see them before the end. Proof that meth/junk/cocaine don't give a fuck who you are. Didn't that feel good? That felt good.

    The plan was always to have Blur close weekend two and Paul basically said that he wasn't concerned by The Roses small crowd

    A member of RHCP told me they were first approached to headline May/June 2012.. So I'll believe him.. since uh, he's in the band.

    And there's an irreconcilability between the band being approached last spring and not signing until the night of the lineup release how, exactly?

    Not really sure. rollingstone.com says RHCP was the replacement for Rolling Stones.. I doubt that. seeing how they got the Blur/Stone Roses wrong. They are the CNN of music reporting

    No one ever said they were the replacement for the Rolling Stones. Coachella wanted the Rolling Stones. I'm sure they wanted Daft Punk and half a dozen other acts, too. But they didn't get them, and they needed a bankable headliner to finish the lineup, and hey, look, the Chili Peppers will take money.

    FWIW, Menik said he found out about RHCP headlining over a year ago.

    Look, all I've got is the rumors at booking time that Blur and Phoenix were done deals and that the festival was scrambling for an actual headliner, and then this Rolling Stone piece where, you know, RHCP's own manager says the booking came down until the hour before they released the lineup.

    Are you talking about that new guitarist that everyone loves so much, because I doubt Flea or Anthony would give much time to anyone from this message board (unless you're one of the few people here with any kind of clout... which reminds me... what ever happened to motorave?elohel). So then it's bloated drummer, or shite new guitarist who allegedly gave you insider information. Gooey.

Coachella dropped the ball this year on promoting the Stone Roses. Face the facts. Why would anyone care about an obscure band that never had a single hit in the US and haven't put out any new material within the last 20 years to promote? THe egos of the stone roses is baffling, and completely irrational. All of you who back the roses are even more delusional than the band, and your excuse for the coachella crowd only caring about sahara acts is even more indignant.
    FUCK ME!!! Paul Tollett is reading my fucking posts! Tollett is open to considering an EDM act to headline again, This ain't no consideration, this is going to happen because this is what your audience wants. Paul, if you are reading this...keep on booking British bands for soCal shows but NOT for the top spot in your festival. It doesn't do anybody any good. Keep up the good work chap!

    Amyzzz...it's great GV books these bands and I admit I look forward to the poster every year just cause I know they'll be playing around my area. I saw some good shows the last year without going to Coachella. Kasabian..PULP..DAMN I was pissed when they didn't announce any other Blur/SR shows. I like the club environment, that is my shit. I would gladly pay X amount of money to see my fav bands with a few thousand other folks that actually care. But yay for GV, keep on booking!

Coachella is about doing something different and booking bands you won't see elsewhere, which is why people go. I don't regret going to SR even if it was a subpar performance, but at least I got a chance to see their only show in the states for what could be the last time. All it means is that we won't see Primal Scream or Happy Mondays or Kula Shaker atop the bill.
    I don't think they need ANOTHER EDM festival but they would be better off bringing some of the acts from the Sahara and getting them out to the masses on the main stage. The Sahara tent was nuts this year, no question about it. Ahh Kula Shaker were bloody awful man!
