I agree, they already have our money for the tickets. I doubt they'll replace Lou Reed. This has happened in years past and they did not have a replacement. Although I do feel like with the amount of money they're charging for tickets now, they owe it to the show goers to have a replacement for someone as iconic as Lou Reed. I love Coachella, but I think this will be the last time I go due to the rising ticket cost, the lesser quality of line ups each year, and not supplying the advertised bands, or at least replacing withdrawn bands. I feel that it's still a service you're purchasing and the service you're being provided each year is of less quality. Plus, seriously, you buy two tickets and get one bumper sticker? I mean if you purchased separately you'd each get a bumper sticker. I know it's a little thing, but for the amount the tickets cost, I think they can afford to give a bumper sticker for each ticket. Yeah I'm going to cry about it... my mom didn't buy my ticket, my paycheck did.
I'm thirty and getting old, works hard for the money
P.s. Check out Make Music Pasadena, free festival, great bands and it's FREE! (Plus you might get a free bumper sticker or something while you're there.)
there will be no replacement.
the execs are going to pocket the money.
Coachella Weekend 1, Mt. Eerie 4/16, Rhye 5/10, Bjork 6/11, Baths 7/17, Bosnian Rainbows 6/24, Portugal The Man 7/10, Pixies 9/11, GY!BE 9/14, Atoms For Peace 10/16, Animal Collective 10/21, Arcade Fire 10/29 & 10/31, Deltron 3030 11/24
Daft Punk Arpil 12th vevo rumor comes true, and Lou Reed was just a cover the entire time... But seriously, there will be no replacement, look at La Roux and CatPower last year.
How about Cat Power? She's playing every other fest and a makeup performance would be nice.

I can't wait to see the debacle of the stone roses the tiny crowd the band realizing the crowd won't sing for them . YouTube gold is on the horizon
Watch the Stone Roses take the stage at 4:30
I was going to say Prince & 3rd Eye Girl would be a possibility because he's starting a west coast small club tour in April but the he has a conflict for the second Friday. Would they ever move an act from Saturday to Friday and put the replacement on a different day? ahhhh I'm a Dreamer.
should move two door cinema club from saturday to friday, and add garbage to saturday (since theyre already booked in vegas on the friday)
David Byrne/St Vincent would be amazing!!!
Wasn't Lou going to be on the Main Stage? If so, how do you not find a replacement?
The Electronic. Bennard Summers and Johhny Marr, would be kick ass.
Just a guess, seeing that he's got about 8 people in his band.
Oh yea, and he basically invented the alternative music genre.
