    Default These Are NOT Headliners.... These ARE....

    Jack Johnson, Stone Roses, Phoenix, the killers, kings of leon, janes addiction and The Black Keys are NOT headliners! Radiohead, Dr Dre, Daft Punk, Prince, Roger Waters, Rage Against the Machine and Tool are, 2013 was kind of a disappoinment as far as headliners were concerned. In 2014 Goldenvoice better step up its game.

    Radiohead already played and so did Dre, you just missed out.

    Coachella 07 (the introduction), 08 (the bands), 09 (the documentary), 10 (the people i came with), 11 (the relationship test... we passed), 12 (whatever the weather, Dirty Epic forever), 13 (the year of the troll)

    Headliners have to do with tickets sales, not individuals' ideas on what they like the most. Those non-headliners have sold just as many (and more) tickets than the other bands you listed....so your argument is invalid.

    Well you are correct Drinkey, but he doesn't like any of those bands. Therefore they are not headliners.

    I disagree. Each headliner is just another name on the poster. Coachella success or failure has to be defined by more factors than who headliner was one night. Some of my favorite Coachellas I spent little if any time at Main Stage. 2013 had more quality choices and depth than just about any other Coachella with more schedule conflicts than any I can remember. If I do not like the headliner or any of the other choices going against the headliner than I would agree with you. Good discussion topic ... thanks.

    In 2009 MBV got 75 minutes.

    In 2013 Nick Cave got less than 50 minutes.

    I'm still trying to figure out who benefited in this situation. Both acts got identical billing in their respective year.

    I really hate when people edit away their mistakes after I poke fun at them. So you suck at the English language. Let me have my fun.
