Your taste around these parts has been questionable at best. "They suck" is far from a convincing, acceptable or even slightly amusing answer.

Everyone had assumed he'd be last add when twitter updated they had one left, so I wrote figures to go along with the "no surprises" theme. It wasn't how I typed it rather how you interpreted it.

im gonna get rosted anyways but fuck it....

ive gone the last 2yrs to Bonnaroo and to know what the vibe is there, this lineup kicks fucking ass!!

you get jay-z and KOL which are about as popular as they are gonna be, and then you have the reliable DMBfor the jambased group, then having Stevie wonder who is sounding better than ever, they did a good job there by not just going for the big classic rock name..

but they still pulled that off as john fogerty and jeff beck and great live...

plus you know damian marley and Nas is gonna be insane as Jay-z will for sure come out for a track or 2...

plus there is still lcd soundsystem and deadmau5 for the late nights....

overall its not the sexiest lineup you are gonna see, but obviously, coachella and bonnaroo are trying to move away from the big stadium headliners in the US and try to round out their lineups evenly and i think Bonnaroo did a solid job this year...

im there at the farm in June so happy trails.........

I like how bonnaroo releases the lineup much better, just announce the date on which it will be released and then do it, on that date. It doesn't feel like we're missing out on any element of surprise either. It's just much, much less stressful and annoying.

Wiki is user-generated, thus, it is not a terribly reliable source on most topics. I can go right now and edit the page to say that RATM drew a crowd that consisted of 85 people and two grey pigeons, and it will stand until someone else changes it.

Wiki is just the first place I usually look. I will believe the LA articles but in retrospect that also means that this year and every year past, Bonnaroo kicks Coachella's ass when it comes to festival attendance. It does make Coachella look "smallish" then. My mistake. Then even if you hate the lineup this shows, the majority of people in the US that attend summer festivals choose Bonnaroo over Coachella and every other US fest by a wide margin. I am not sure what that means either. cr*****

That it has larger capacity. That's what it means.

I would go to this if it were close by. It's not remotely worth travelling for though. The headliners aren't really worthwhile (Scooper, Stevie Wonder is most definitely not better than he's ever been. Go listen to his work from 67-73. That's when he was at his best) and most of the undercard is either at Coachella or is made up of bands that frequently tour. Sure, I'd like to see lots of them, but I get to see them do their own shows. Coachella's definitely got a better lineup this year.

Listen, I give mad respect to Stevie Wonder, but the rest of the lineup is a bit of a been there done that. The argument is just not close.

Still a somewhat weak lineup at the onset, Coachella's is head and shoulders better this year. Hopefully some nice additions will come, I really can't believe KOL will be headlining one night. I like them ok but for 3 hours?! Stevie Wonder is definitely the best thing about this year's lineup. LCD soundsystem is going to kill it at the Roo as well, but it still won't be as good as their Coachella show in '07. Thankfully I don't have to but if I had to chose one it would be Coachella no contest.

We have discussed that a lot and there is no answer. Popularity also doesn't mean you suck either.

Jay-z is on both bills and right now you could say he is the most popular artist right now on all the charts. He might be the reason I won't go to either fest. cr*****

Because there are lots of festivals to go to, these two are just first in my consideration always but neither bill has knocked me out as of yet. If Bowie or Neil was at either festival, it would be a given I would go. For pure musicians, this years wakarusa might beat both coachella and bonnaroo.

Ron, Bonnaroo ALLOWS 30k more to attend. Dont you ever think that Coachella wouldnt allow more people to attend if they had the space?


YAWNAROO 2010!!

Maybe but from what I have read over the years, it went a bit up and down but because of local laws, people like this board saying they don't want it to be a lot bigger, and a number of other factors are why coachella tics are usually the same each year. You don't think they couldn't pack another 30k inside the venue if they wanted to? I am not sure so that is just what I think. cr****

KoL, DMB, Hov and Kid CuDi are 4 of my probably top 10 favorite artists...and this lineup is not enough to get me out...DMB tour every summer and i'll be seeing them for the 5th straight year...although it is the only KoL show of the year, the set will not be anything special. they really don't put a bunch of extra thought into their setlists...Hov is playing Coachella and seeing him at Staples and I just saw CuDi at Club Nokia at one of my favorite shows of all time...Stevie Wonder, meh, he just played a holiday show with the Jonas Brothers...

I just can't believe that someone would admit to this

Ron,
First off, Dave Matthews Band and Kings of Leon are not good headliners. By any stretch of the means. Neither is Stevie at this point, to be perfectly honest. At least Macca's last three albums were decent. Stevie hasn't put out good music since the mid 70s. My very subjective opinion.

Second, they sell 30,000 more tickets because they allow 30,000 more people into the space. Coachella doesn't have as many people there for any number of reasons: it's a much smaller festival layout, and adding more people would cause them to (1) have to extend the festival grounds, thereby limiting both parking and camping and (2) create a less intimate festival setting (granted, it's not overly intimate, but still.) Further, Coachella reduced the amount of tickets they sell, which obviously means they reduced admission. Why do this when it's sold out almost every single day since 2004? It makes for less crowding in the venue, it makes it easier on the town itself and it is generally more pleasant.

Finally, there is no way Wakarusa will have better musicians overall. Why? They don't have the same budget or name draw that would get the better musicians to come out and play there. Coachella and Bonnaroo are the big two in the US, with Lolla a close third. That's where more diverse talent will play, because of the name.

First that sentence is goofy as hell but he said Coachella would allow more people if they had the space. The venue itself ie: Coachella has plenty of space. The question was not does the town of Indio have enough room to house x number of people, are there enough hamburgers in Palm Springs and the surrounding area enough to feed the trolls for 5 days, etc. Argue with yourself if you don't want to address what I said. cr*****

2. lolla is ahead of roo and coachella on the US festival circuit. just because most of your friends haven't been to it nor have they stepped foot in chicago doesn't mean that fact isn't true. lolla has the most ticket sales along with the largest profit margin of each of the festivals. this is also why they get 6 headliners each year to go along with a great rock undercard.

Yea I know but this is a round about conversation. My only point was this: We have all been to say a nfl football game. Attendance maybe 80k. There is that college stadium that holds 100k+. So if GV wanted to be greedy, how many more people could you hold inside the venue itself. I say 30k easy. That is my only point. I guess I might ask, since this is in the middle of a desert, why isn't there close in camping for 100k people anyway. This is a destination festival . cr*****

Agree with most of this BUT...

1. Coachella has NOT reduced the number of tickets they sell.

2. If you go by attendance numbers and overall national press, Lolla is also bigger than Coachella.

bmack86

Because it's not really in the middle of the desert. It's in the middle of a desert community on developed land. And there's a difference between how many you can fit and how many you can fit comfortably. Bonnaroo has much more space to expand. Coachella keeps it's relative size down, and we're lucky.

You must be fuckin high man.

They are not going to have 3 of the top 4 acts (if Waters gets added, which he probably won't) play into each other like that. simply not happening. Plus Stevie Wonder is #4 in your scenario, Al Green was 8th. They simply do not compare

Also, the idea of Roger Waters + A giant fuckin' brick wall, Massive Attack, and Paul Simon all being added to any bill after it's initial release is ridiculous

Yeah, that crowd was nutty. I, along with about 60 other people watched two drunken idiots tackle each other about 5 times, man-hug MMA style on the ground for 10 minutes, then stare each other down for the remainder of the set. It kinda added to the atmosphere, in a funny kinda way

GWAR have a way with lyrics:

"Womb With A View"

Fiendish and crude
Froosty and lews
This is the life I have whored myself to
Spackled and battered and smothered and covered
And cleaving and cloven and bitter and blued
Your womb
Your breeding sac

Your womb is a membrane I must penetrate
Your womb is a sewer
I grunt at the grate
Your womb is a sewer
Your womb is manure
but still, I'm worse

My life is a sinkhole
Egregious and rude
Worm fested and filthy
Froosty and lewd
A womb with a view
When one becomes two
Fuck you
Never to matter the number of flies feasting the flab that bolsters your thighs
Your womb
Your breeding hive
Womb with a view
I see you

I was born
Deep in the void
Raped by millions I soon grew
Annoyed!

Could I somehow elope?
Like a molecule in a microscope
So your womb won't become the tomb of our dead baby
Never to matter the number of flies
Lapping the flab that bolsters your thighs
Womb with a view
When one becomes two
Fuck you

Your womb is a membrane I must penetrate
Your womb is a sewer
I grunt at the grate
Your womb is a sewer
Your womb is manure
But still, I'm worse

I'm not surprise Roger Waters isn't in the lineup. There's no way that he could or would perform The Wall in an outdoor venue or at a festival.

1) If Roger brings a production that is anything close to what the Floyd put on in 1980/1981, the production would be immense and would take far too much time for a festival. There would be a 40ft tall 100ft long steel framed wall that would have to be constructed on stage. The steel frame for the wall alone would take a lot of time to set up leaving a large gap between performances. Roger would also be bringing along inflatables (school teacher, mother, wife). The 1980/1981 tour had two seperate stages. At the beginning of the show there was a "surrogate" band performing on a seperate side stage for "In the Flesh?" as the real Floyd set up on the main stage. Another feature that would not be able to be used was the airplane that flew over the audience and into the wall at the end of "Happiest Days of our Lives."

2) The timeframe makes no sense. According to many sources, The Wall tour is set to take off sometime this fall, more than likely late September/October like his Dark Side of the Moon tour did. Why then would he put on the full production of The Wall in mid June to then wait another three month to roll out more shows.

I don't doubt that Waters was in talks to play Bonnaroo, but I highly doubt that he was going to do a full production of The Wall. If anything I could see it being a practice gig to get the band warmed up for the tour but even then the timeframe makes no sense.

^what kind of venues will he tour, in your opinion?

More than likely it will have to be in door venues like the Sports Arena or Nassau Colliseum like they toured back in 1980-1981. They needed to find a place that would be able to house a massive production like The Wall and also still be able to fit 15,000-20,000 people. So realistically now, in L.A., while the Sports Arena is still in use it will probably take place in a more up to date venue. It all depends, if he is going to bring a production like Berlin, then I heard rumors that he might be playing at the Colliseum but I highly doubt that. If it is a production like 1980-1981 then its possible that we could see him in arenas like Staples Center and Madison Square Garden.

The lineup is lacking, true. If you try and envision what a typical evening/night at Bonnaroo looks like there are def some slots that look like they could be filled.

I don't think KOL will be the main stage headliner. I think they will get a Beastie Boys slot and open for someone huge (Waters perhaps). Same goes for Stevie Wonder but I really know nothing about his following. It sounds insane for them to do this but I have a feeling they are still going to add Waters, Paul Simon, and Massive Attack. I'm probably wrong but whatever

Stevie into KOL into Waters (insane I know but I am basing this off of Al Green's time slot last year)
Massive Attack into Jay Z or late night on Which
Paul Simon into DMB

dont be dumb, steve. KOL are second billed in a festival in TN. They are absolutely headlining

You must be fuckin high man.

They are not going to have 3 of the top 4 acts (if Waters gets added, which he probably won't) play into each other like that. simply not happening. Plus Stevie Wonder is #4 in your scenario, Al Green was 8th. They simply do not compare

Also, the idea of Roger Waters + A giant fuckin' brick wall, Massive Attack, and Paul Simon all being added to any bill after it's initial release is ridiculous

That's actually my thought. Why the fuck would they add 3 HUGE names after the initial release? Well... why the fuck would they release the lineup the way that they did yesterday? None of it makes sense. I really think if it all came out at once people would have been left with a better tatse in their mouths. I just can't see Bonnaroo, which has been pretty fucking awesome with lineups the past few years, putting this lineup out and having those first 6 bands listed as their top fucking tier. But if you add those three names to the bill, you get a pretty strong lineup. It's all speculation of course.

Why couldn't Stevie go into KOL into Waters? Do you see Stevie as a headliner? I mean he's deserving, but he's not going to draw in 80,000 fans. Do you see KOL as headliner of Bonnaroo? They might be headliners at Glasto, Lolla (second stage), etc... but this in Bonnaroo. Bonnaroo get's bigger headliners than KOL. They aren't at a Pearl Jam level. They aren't even at a MMJ level if you ask me. That is where the thought of KOL going into Waters comes into play.

JSam67
02-10-2010, 07:45 AM
Shotglass, what's with your crazy theories? Give up on Waters. Give up on Massive Attack. Stevie Wonder headlines in the Springsteen slot. KOL are absolute monsters there because they're from the region (think NY bands getting higher billing at APW last year than they would at, say, Bonnaroo).

It's a shit lineup. That's all there is to it.

MassiveChemicalPunk
02-10-2010, 07:49 AM
I have to agree with JSam.

Shotglass, I really think you shouldn't get your hopes up. I really don't think they'll add so many big bands. Tops is that you may get Neil Young. But Waters, Massive Attack or anything on that league is not likely to happen. When has Bonnaroo added a headliner or great subheadliner in past years?

And KOL will headline. They are in their home turf. Just accept it.

I guess I'm just bored with KOL and think everyone is too. I know I'm off and I know it's their home turf and all but EVERYONE has seen KOL this past year and their live show is nothing special. They don't have some amazing visuals. They don't go off and jam on really any of their songs. I like 'em but I am bored with em. And from my experiences at Bonnaroo I just feel that they have always had more interesting headliners.


I actually think the rest of the lineup is pretty strong, I just feel there needs to be a few names added at the top.

I read this on the COS board. I think it speaks volumes.

Long time festival fan, long time Bonnaroo fan too. I was wondering why is everyone so disappointed? It seems like the same ole Bonnaroo line-up year after year, minus the heavy jam band angle (which is for me an improvement) It's just this year seems to lack the umph they once had.

But seriously - I always loved going to Roo, I have been the last 3 years. I live in Virginia and it was the easiest festival for me to get to. Having said that, this line-up is a major fail. I am very disappointed, and this is with losing all those jam bands too! For such a huge respected festival, they have really dropped the ball. But I think all the festivals will seem a little lackluster this year.

Why?

I think most established fests (Coachella, ACL, Lolla, Roo, APW, Sasquatch, etc...) are going to tighten their spending this year when it comes to booking acts. We've already seen it in Coachella's and Roo's initial lineups. Not a deal breaker, but people must expect this trend to continue, with ONE possible exception: Lollapalooza.

As some had already said, Lollapalooza has more corporate muscle than the other fests, usually a very bad thing imo, but this year, it may actually help them. I have a feeling that they are going to just flat out rule every other festival this year. I mean, how can they not? The other festivals have dropped the ball one way or another.

For example, even though the Coachella message board doesn't think so, Coachella’s new 3 day only pass thing, plus a weaker-than-normal line-up (albeit slightly), plus the overall expense, makes it less attractive than years past for those festival diehards that live outside of California. And this is the one year, when I think most acts at the major festivals are already booked, leaving little room for that game changing surprise additions. (Prince at Coachella for example)

Roo's bigger problem is that they've had a bad history when it comes to lackluster additions, they've never added someone as big as Prince, so I wouldn't expect anything to be different this year. Even the Paul Simon/Neil Young rumors seem to be pipe dreams now. the best roo might get now is Govt Mule.

So it makes sense that Perry and co. are going to see the festival landscape that for the most part Bonnaroo and Coachella have botched (in their own ways), and Lolla might be the one to take full advantage of the situation. I already know many people who are holding back their festival money, not going to roo, acl, or coachella, and waiting to see what Lolla will bring them in 2010. In this economy, it makes sense/cents that people aren't traveling as much or to as many festivals.

Yes. Definitely the weakest top part of the line up. Budgetchella for sure. Oh wait... you're an idiot. Don't you remember the backlash against the line up last year and in 08? Do you remember the backlash this year? No? Well that is because their wasn't one. Appart from a few people complaining about Jay-Z, everyone was really hapy with the line up this year.

Furthermore, numerous board members here have been claiming how they havent been able to convince any friend to go to Coachella before no matter how hard they tried, then this year they didn't even have to try to convince friends. They all wanted to come because of the line up. This is the case with me this year. This line up is by far the strongest line up in years and apparently everyone except you and that dude on COS realize it.

Yep, they have the advantage of timing. They can see who is willing to play festivals, how much it's going to cost them to get that act booked, when are they going to tour... etc.

It's easy for me to swing it as well. I just wish I liked the layout more. I have that feeling we will see Soundgarden for sure, and those Lady Gaga rumors will grow everyday since Perry said he's bringing glam to Lolla this year. The lineup will be good no doubt, but as original as Coachella? Probably not.

I'm pretty sure the Bonnaroo headliners are set.

I've never seen them add headliners after the fact.

I'm just hoping they don't do the additions like the initial line up.

I'll go bonkers.

I've been to Bonnaroo once and had a blast.

I still think Coachella's line up is better this year.

Just because Bonnaroo can pack in more people due to size doesn't mean it's better, just bigger. Bigger isn't always better.

And just because Lolla is in the middle of town doesn't make it better either. I actually think being in the middle of town makes a festival worse because then people who don't really give a crap go to the festival because it's convenient. They really don't care if it's a baseball game, festival, monster truck rally, whatever. Just something to do when they are bored and need a place to get wasted.

And just because Lolla is in the middle of town doesn't make it better either. I actually think being in the middle of town makes a festival worse because then people who don't really give a crap go to the festival because it's convenient. They really don't care if it's a baseball game, festival, monster truck rally, whatever. Just something to do when they are bored and need a place to get wasted.

Lolla's setting is pretty great though. The killer Chicago skyline is hard to beat as a backdrop.

Considering the attendance numbers, they do get their share of, let's go do that. But it also feels like they get 50,000 music diehards in there too.

Furthermore, numerous board members here have been claiming how they havent been able to convince any friend to go to Coachella before no matter how hard they tried, then this year they didn't even have to try to convince friends.

hahahahaha

errr...yeah. jay-z, pavement, muse, faith no more, tcv, tiesto at the top of the lineup? if you would stop being a fan boy for once, you would see that this is the weakest top part of the lineup that coachella has ever had. budgetchella at its finest.


What in the hell are talking about? You think booking Tiesto is a part of "budgetchella"? Do you not realize that he is arguably the most popular DJ in the world (note I said popular, not skilled)? Same with David Guetta. I'm pretty sure that they're on the more expensive end of electronic acts.

Oh but that's it. I'm sure Pavement and Faith No More were pretty cheap subs too, they're just cheap reunions that don't have much leverage (despite each of them selling out their recent reunion shows). Thom Yorke must also have been pretty cheap, he's just some solo dude.

And Gorillaz? Psh, I'm sure they'll have some cheap production that wont cost much.

And yeah, I'm sure names like Public Image ltd, Echo & the Bunnymen, The Specials (oh hey another reunion), Gary Numan, De La Soul, Devo, and many other 3rd-4th line acts (which there are more of this year) probably didn't cost much.

This line up is by far the strongest line up in years and apparently everyone except you and that dude on COS realize it.

Come on now. Be a little more realistic. He's right that this year has the weakest top part of the lineup. Overall it's a very solid lineup but definitely not the strongest in years. It just worked out perfectly for you because your favorite bands are on the lineup this year.


I'm still shocked about how bad bonnaroo fucked up. They shouldn't have even had it this year since they knew the lineup was going to be this bad.

I happen to know that Echo and Devo aren't that expensive to book. esp when Devo will be touring.

You can laugh, but he's right.

This is my 3rd coachella, I fly out all the way from VA.

in 2008, only one person came with me.

in 2009, no one would.

this year, I have four people that are coming (so far).

Well this I would not expect given their prestige.

But my point still stands. Calling this lineup a "budgetchella" is fucking ignorant.

You can call it a weak lineup all you want to - that's an opinion. But whether or not you like it, this still is probably not a "budgetchella".

It's a case by case basis, he's not exactly right...

I will have been to 10 Coachella's and this is the first year we DON'T have at least 4 people in the car or hotel. Just 2.

For example, in 2004 we had 13 people. in 1999 we had 9, In 2007 we had 5

I wouldn't call it that, but I would make a claim that this year, they spent less on booking acts than the last 2 years.

It's stronger than last year. That's about it. Not that this year sucks or anything, it's still great.

Im just saying, its been spread out through numerous threads here... but I recall there a quite the number of acounts of people saying how they could never convince any friends to go, but this year those same friends are tripping over themselves wanting to go.

no need to get worked up, betao. i'm sure circumstances also have a lot to do with some peoples friends being able to go this year and not past years.

one cannot, however look at the top of the lineups that coachella has produced since it went to the three day format and logically argue that the amount of money spent on it compares to this year. its not even close, and its not even worth debating with fanboys.

It's easy for me to swing it as well. I just wish I liked the layout more. I have that feeling we will see Soundgarden for sure, and those Lady Gaga rumors will grow everyday since Perry said he's bringing glam to Lolla this year. The lineup will be good no doubt, but as original as Coachella? Probably not.

I agree on all counts.

Be that as it may, but I would challenge that claim.

Budgetchella? well if indeed they're tightening the purse strings, they did it with gusto and provided us with a solid lineup.

I'm with amyzzz. Peace, thread.

Didn't mean to come off as "worked up", but I'm still standing by my assertion that they spent more money this year than they did last year.

I wont say 08, because I'm sure Roger Waters, Prince, and Portishead were pretty pricey.
