Okay gang, for the 2007 lineup I started a prediction pool on the old board just for fun. And bragging rights. For the 2008 lineup, the pool will also be for fun...it won't cost you anything but your time.
You MUST list 20 bands, no more, no less. Also, headliners will be required, so the first three names on your list will be considered your headliner predictions. For correct headliner guesses, you will be rewarded TWO points for each, and all other bands will count as one point.
How To Enter:
Either email your predictions and board handle to email@example.com or private message your list to idrive1life. You can resubmit your list as often as you wish until the deadline, but keep in mind that in the event of a tie, the poster with the fewest resubmits and/or the earliest final submission, will win. So there's incentive to just send your list in once and be done with it. Also, for example, if Rick Astley gets confirmed by CNN on Friday, and you had previously submitted him in your list on Thursday, then you still get points for him, but he'd be restricted for everyone else. Okay?
Unlike the 2007 pool, the winner of the 2008 pool will actually get a prize to be determined at a later date, donated at my expense (most likely a cd or vinyl 7" of a Coachella 2008 artist), but if I end up winning this contest, then the next person will get the prize, because since I'm the one paying for everything, I'm not exactly eligible to win. I make some pretty illogical predictions, so I doubt that will happen. My guesses are for fun.
All entries must be sent via email or PM to firstname.lastname@example.org or idrive1life by Tuesday, December 18th at 10PM Pacific Time. No exceptions.
Do not post your list, or anyone else's, on the board before idrive1life reveals them all.
RESTRICTED BANDS (FINAL LIST):
Cold War Kids (added 12/16 @ 3:19am)
Heidi Vogel & The Cinematic Orchestra
Death Cab for Cutie
VHS or Beta
Rabbit in the Moon
Just like in 2007, to guarantee diversity in the prediction lists, bands that are considered "confirmed" will be restricted. This list will be finalized sometime Monday, and if it just so happens that pitchfork or billboard "confirms" another band immediately after the list is declared FINAL, then those latest scoops would be fair game.
