Lineup drops January 13
insider showed up last night. madness ensued. confirmed that florence, desdmau5, and either beck or Mumford are confirmed. also a clue that could be Dylan or Ringo starr. I'd advise against going to read it, as it's near 60 pages of people having no ducking clue what is happening to them.
Would My Morning Jacket be consider a classic headliner in regard to the festival's history?

I read this garbage. she doesn't say there is a classic or hip hop headliner. she wonders why no one is asking about them. imo because people think these are things that must be.
she specifically ruled mmj out.
Those are decent headliners. Wonder how the second line will look
I know some of this comes down to personal preferences, but that is an exceptionally unexciting Top 4 for that festival. I know Mumford goes over really well with that audience, but jeez. Kendrick's live performances as of late have been strong, but a headliner?
Coachella has always been the canary in a coalmine when it comes to unexciting headliners for the majors...

The erratic spacing between acts is a dead giveaway.
4/8 Ride @ The Roxy, 4/10 St. Vincent @ The Cosmopolitan, 4/14 Barry Manilow @ Staples Center, 5/2 Desert Daze, 5/8-10 Levitation, 5/16 The Juan Maclean @ The Regent, 6/10 Emmy the Great @ Hotel Cafe, 6/12 Emmy the Great @ Hotel Utah
they are doing some godawful call in thing, where you call a number ,are given an act, and then share in via fb, twitter, and ig. they they share the correct posts. runs from 6-9 eastern.
They should send it out in morse code over the next 5 months. One dot or dash each day until the full lineup is revealed. I can't think of any other annoying way for them to reveal the lineup.
