    seen Kendrick around 4 or 5 times live and would much rather have him on Friday or Saturday. Drake had the potential to work perfectly as the Sunday closer, but for some reason as smart as he is with every aspect of his career, he hasn't figured out live shows.

    It'll probably be Kendrick, EDM, LCD. Altho I'd love LCD, EDM, Kendrick.

    Co-headliner or strong sub.

    Didn't he headline a bunch of fests already this year? Why would he take anything besides a headlining spot?

    And don't say "he's not big enough." Because that's just silly.

    Yeah Oscar keeps saying that because he hasn't sold out an arena on his own yet. But he also hasn't done anything except festivals and radio shows this year (cept for my surprise show at the Ace in August ). It's totally different when he's headlining a radio fest at the forum with eight other shitty dudes. Kendrick fans know they're not going to get a really good Kendrick show when he only has an hour max and is pandering to the general public. A real Kendrick headlining show, with one opener, where you know he's gonna get at least 2 hours and will play more than just GKMC stuff... I think that could sell out an arena.

    He's playing Barclays, the United Center, and the Forum this year. Three arenas in three regions of the US. He's a headliner now.

    I sometimes wonder if he's bigger in my mind than he is in the real world. Cause I think he's just absolutely one of the most important things to happen in music in a long time and the fact that he's mainstream is just an added bonus.

    He has been hitting so many festivals already and curious if he will bother with another season of festivals. I could see him skipping coach all together and then coming back after the next album and headlining.

    I'm not super into him, but I don't think it's an exaggeration to say he's one of the biggest names in music currently. How people can question him as a headliner is beyond me.

    Those are all radio shows. For some reason, TDE has yet to test him out and give him a solo Arena show.

    Also, I highly doubt TDE lets someone co-headline with him, heard of a couple festivals this year that offered him a sub-headline spot and they refused because they were only taking headline offers.

    So I can't tell if he's gotten light years better since that performance cause all three times I saw him this year I was surrounded by people going apeshit and it was really fun and he was really fucking good live. I think he's a lot better now? I can't objectively say. Altho his NSO show would definitely speak to that.

    Still remember when most people had no idea who he was during Dr. Dre's headlining set.

    YUP, I was there both weekends and confirm, did not give a shit about Kendrick's performance. And I already thought Dre & Snoop had one of the best headlining sets I'd ever seen at Coachella. If only I realized how much better it even was!

    I'm still surprised people felt that way about Dre's set. Personally, I thought it was great. Same format as the Up in Smoke tour (which was incredible) only with different production and guests.

    The bitching about Kendrick would be much much less than it was for Drake. Not even much of a Kendrick fan, but he seems to have more of a die hard following than someone like Drake. Kendrick had the biggest crowd of anyone at Life Is Beautiful.
    My old account "Mikey1313666" is down for whatever reason.

    Jay-Z was amazing.
    Kanye was great from everything I watched and was great every time after that.
    Never heard a single complaint about Dr. Dre set.
    Outkast weekend 1 was a blast for me, but I did think it was phoned in. Saw them again at Life is Beautiful and were blown away.
    Skipped Drake because not a fan and was definitely not worthy of Coachella headliner. He is proving over and over again that he is not a festival headliner with his lack of full solo tracks.
