Thread: Franz Ferdinand should have Headlined instead of Phoenix

    Default Re: Franz Ferdinand should have Headlined instead of Phoenix

    Ff should be the headliners. That's it!!!!!
    You are forgetting that from 2004 -2007 they were bigger than muse , black keys and 99% of this year line up.

    So for ff to be 7 th on the bill behind Phoenix stones roses and blur is just stupid.....

    What the heck is Johnny marr doing in the middle of the bill?????? He should be friday 's headliner .... Not middle of the bills.!!!!!!

    And what happened to the Rolling Stones????????? Either we promote Johnny marr and ff to the headliner slots or we dish out 10 mill and get the Rolling Stones as late addition.
    Only way to salvage coachella from flopping this year!!!!!!

    you do know that 2007 was six years ago. A lot changes in six years. Amy Winehouse has died, and so has Michael Jackson. Hell Skrillex has a better chance of headlining than FF

    What's your point?
    A lot has changed since Macca started his career or the Rolling Stones..... Classic songs will remain classic.
    Ff are still the best "new band" to date .... And for them not to headline it's something criminally vulgar!!!!!!!
    Cocachella failing to sign the stones is also criminally vulgar!!!!!!!!
    Meanwhile, Macca will destroy bonnaroo while other festivals will laugh at coachella!!!!

    Who would have thought 100 years ago that adults would believe in trolls? Pretty fucking embarrassing. Can't people just be morons and scumbags anymore?

    What are they smoking?????

    Headliners give the festival credibility .... That's why bonnaroo and osl and Glastonbury have more credibility than coachella.

    Johnny marr???? He is regarded as one of the best guitarists of all time..... So promote him as a headliner in place of stone roses
    Plus, Franz Ferdinand is one of only eight artists on the lineup to score a platinum album in the US.

    This one time, on a hike, I had a friend point out some poison oak. he then proceeded to rub the poison oak all over his arms and laugh. i no longer speak to this person any more.

    I think FF made more impact in history than the stone roses and phoenix combined. So for them to be billed lower, it's really absurd!!!!! this is a a big fat joke!!!!

    I am not making anything up.... FF made more impact in history than Phoenix and the stones roses.......that's the truth. As a matter of fact, they are headlining all the festivals in europe.....and for them to be billed this low at coachella, it's just insulting.

    Coachella has become one big fat joke....this is absurd!!!! First the 2 weekends thing....now letting mediocre bands headline????????? what's next? Letting one direction and snoop dog headline????? this is getting very scary!!!!!

    please do us all a favor and explain further the concept of Franz Ferdinand making a deeper impact upon the history we all know.

    from 2004 to 2007 they were the best rock band in the world, no contest there. they were bigger than Muse, the black keys, Mumford and all the other bands.

    voted best live act in 2006
    headlined glastonbury in 2009
    first album is a classic, their very first album....it took them only 1 album for them to become hall of famers.

    Now....let's take a look at his year headliners:

    Stone roses??? 2 albums??? and that's it???? no new songs in 20 years? their 2 albums don't even equate to FF first album
    Blur? I love blur, but they should be second on the bill behind FF
    Phoenix? this is a joke!!!!!

    The only way to save face this year is to do the following :
    promote FF to the headlining slot on sat
    promote jonnny marr to the headlining slot on fri

    try at all costs to sign the rolling stones next year...even if it means dishing out 14 mill

    that's it!!!!!

    when i read your posts i imagine a hysterical 15 y/o girl even though you're probably some sad sack idiot with poor taste that's trolling the boards. I'm sure that you are way more insulted by FF's billing than they are. Get over it. They are not that relevant.

    more relevant than Phoenix and stone roses and blur combined.....that's for sure.
    In 2009 FF were second on the bill behind Macca....but it was Macca....so that's understandable. This year, there's no excuse to put them just in the middle of the pack!!!! Coachella has lost credibility with absurd decision making.

    First, they decided to do it over 2 weekends......stupid decision
    second - they failed to sign the stones
    third - they had to scramble to find headliners...and they signed stone roses and phoenix???????
    then they insult us by putting johnny marr and FF in the middle of the bill??????

    I refuse to get insulted like that........ this is something criminally vulgar.........
    Either they promote FF and johnny marr to the headlining slots and sign the stones next year, or we should boycott this stupid festival!!!! that's it!!!!!
