I don't get what New Jersey has to do with Coachella anyways? Do you think they are taking away bands to save for that show? What would be the motivation to do that??? It makes no business sense.
they are competing with themselves by creating a new festival.
we are the spoiled 9 yr old who just found out mommy and daddy are having a baby and baby gets all the attention while we get pushed aside.
Damn right there saving the good stuff.
But now that there is a festival starting up in NYC...you gotta pull out the big guns for that. They want to be on the map after year ONE of that festival, not take several years to build up like Coachella did. Why blow your load on Coachella when you need to make a splash in the Big Apple? This lineup wouldn't fly for a first time fest in NYC, but it's still going to be OK for Coachella.
That's why Jerseychella is going to get Radiohead and god (or Paul T) only knows who else. It's going to be a ridiculous lineup for that festival, though. I'm jealous already.

Portishead is fine, but Jack Johnson? I heard that the Jerseychella is much smaller and might only be one day, but I bet the line-up is a whole lot better. Can anyone tell me where I can score some heroin for Coachella? Also, some uppers, downers, qualoods, & other god awfull drugs? Why? I need something to make the shows much more interesting. Can I get an A-MEN!?!?
