Underworld should definitely headline Sahara, preferably Saturday night. I saw them at Field Day Fest, that disaster of a concert that was supposed to be a two day campout in upstate New York and got moved to one day in Giants Stadium, and to top it all it ended up being a bitter cold rainy-as-fuck day in the middle of June, so everyone was just miserable for the first six hours, not into the music at all. Then Underworld came on, and they rocked the seriously unhappy crowd so hard that hundreds of people were jumping down from the bleachers to get their rave on in the middle of a cold downpour. Impressive, to say the least.
The Stooges (current American tour has no dates after April 27th)
Nas (two day break between Salt Lake City on the 26th and Las Vegas on the 29th)
Mute Math (two day break between San Diego on the 26th and Tempe on the 29th)
Queens of the Stone Age
Yo La Tengo
The Polyphonic Spree
Wu Tang Clan
Doubtful, but not Impossible:
Pet Shop Boys
Blood Brothers & Coldplay are (were) both excellent live, both very different obv. but it's a tough call if you're into both.
Chem' Bro's are Brilliant live and i imagine there lighting/visual show would be Perfect in a tent Or in the nightsky on the main stage at Coachella.

I missed the Blood Brothers in 2005 because Coldplay was playing at the same time.
Having seen Blood Brothers a while back, I don't think you missed anything at all ....
