Definitely Iron Maiden...some of the head hanchos even said on the SS Coachella that Iron Maiden is a band they've thought about headlining....I could see it happening, and would be totally for it.
Yes, yes they would be.
Jagwar Ma, Duke Dumont, OutKast, the Knife, Bonobo, Broken Bells, the Cult, the Afghan Whigs, Caravan Palace, Hot Since 82, Flume, Austra
Muse, Nas, Queens of the Stoneage, DARKSIDE, Fatboy Slim, White Lies, Empire of the Sun, Blood Orange, Pharrell, Mogwai, Warpaint, Naked and Famous
Disclosure, Arcade Fire, Little Dragon, Motorhead, Maceo Plex, Scuba, Laurent Garnier, Beck, CLASSIXX, STRFKR, AlunaGeorge, Trombone Shorty
Now I just need to get a ticket...
Iron Maiden would be awesome, they definitely have a stronger folowwing than Stone Roses here in the states. However, I am not sure what percentage of potential Coachella goers are followered of them and would skip out for some crap EDM. Still they would be awesome.
Prince (already mentioned)
Red Hot Chili Peppers (hopefully in the never again catergory)
Radiohead (should be in the too soon category)
Thats all I can think of, off the top of my head. Nice list and well organized. Hopefully this can be used during next season's headliner speculation season.
But if Iron Maiden Headlines how could we get a ticket before all of the a'Mexicans buy our tickets!

Iron Maiden fans would pay for the 3 day pass JUST for them...they have to be some of the most die hard fans i've ever encountered....plus would not ditch out to see EDM trust me....AND they would fill the main stage like no other headliner in the past so no stone roses part deux for sure....
this would be a dream come true but i have my doubts still on this genre leading the way for coachella...but i hope im wrong
Neil Young should be under blockbusters. He's less 'out of genre' (sic) than Elton John.
non sunt in coeli, quia fvccant vvivys of heli
Beastie Boys!? Are you serious!? Kill yourself..PLEASE
Also, how are Eminem and Watch the Throne "Out of genre" when all 3 have played Coachella before?
Eminem was a guest spot, by that logic Korn should be able to play Coachella as well.
