    I'm not even surprised by what they try to call a lineup anymore....

    The Replacements > The Knife > OutKast is this years saving grace.
    (along with the assumed Neutral Milk Hotel & genuine surprise, Motorhead)

    A list of (very) available acts that really should have been on the lineup:

    -Depeche Mode/Nine Inch Nails, instead of Muse
    -Basement Jaxx [live] (playing Ultra)
    -Trentemøller [live] (playing Ultra)
    -Kraftwerk (playing Moog)
    -Chic (playing Moog)

    (Ultra is the end of March in Miami, Moog Fest is the end of April in Asheville, NC. I find it hard to believe that it wouldn't have been convenient to book them. Also, the Kraftwerk shows in LA are only about 20,000 tickets total with the 8 shows combined, and they sold out very quickly. The demand is there.)

    -Massive Attack (debuting new @ Sonar)
    -Plastikman (debuting new @ Sonar)
    -Moderat (playing Sonar, dates free, only played 4 gigs while in North America in 2013)

    The rare factor overall this year is low. Even considering act availability, I have to consider this an overall lazy lineup.

    I know they feel like they need to play it safe, because they were cheap/risky last year. Hopefully next year will have some sort of redemption in the rare electronic act & avant-guarde category, but the new direction is proportionally evident.

    Starts and ends with Failure. What a bummer, I guess the 2/13 show at the El Rey may result in some of my $ being diverted to scalpers...

    I will add that if I were into crazy ass ridiculous Coachella conspiracy rumors.....then I would be more inclined to wonder as to why the OutKast reunion is on Friday night and why aren't Arcade Fire and Beck listed equally?

    Now I know the logical answer is that Beck is not as popular as he once was and AF have a show Thursday night somewhere else.....BUT I'm sure someone (not me) will suggest that it's because another name will go next to Arcade Fire.

    yes, I know this is stupid.

    Where's RHYE?!? One of the best albums last year and I'm sure a lot of boardees put them in their lineup pool.
    I thought The Weeknd would be playing due to being a popular name and having a great turnout in '12. No LA dates in sight and it seemed like a lock.
    I'm really surprised that The National is absent

    I'm starting to think they said "Can we just book you as Skrillex so we can bill you higher? Not enough people will know you're in Jack U". God forbid Coachella go 1 year without some incantation of Skrillex and Diplo/Major Lazer, is there really no one else more interesting?
