I can't really think of any other Hip Hop Chella headliner Goldenvoice would book
Eminem seems inevitable at some point.
Lil Wayne had a window before he went to jail, but I think that window has shut
and while he's hardly my favorite, don't be surprised if Drake is soon receiving Headliner consideration.
Agreed that it would be hard to top this year's headliner. Dre, Snoop & Co. absolutely crushed it. With that said the only two acts in the same realm (not including Jay & Ye) would seem to be Eminem and Outkast.
Anyone else think they could take a year off from having a hip hop headliner, or are the past three years an indication of what has become the standard?
I think we will start to see some legitimate electronic headliners.
This. I highly doubt Skrillex, I think dubstep has already reached its peak. Depending on how the year goes for him I can see Deadmau5 becoming a headliner honestly but I still think it would be odd if Daft Punk isn't the first EDM headliner of Coachella, fucking doubt that will happen though. All of this said I'd be ecstatic for Outkast.

OutKast is the only hip-hop headliner left. I really feel that Eminem is not ever going to headline, can't exactly articulate why but I just don't see it happening, and if it is there will be at least a couple years after Dre and Snoop.
Does anybody know who the replacement headliner was for Sabbath? I assumed it was Keys, but a couple people seemed to indicate it was Dre. If Dre really was the replacement, it seems like they were going for "rock" this year. I don't think next year will have a hip-hop headliner, but I also think that Coachella has the most cache with the hip-hop industry of any of the festivals globally. They can basically book who they want from this point on. I don't think anybody in hip-hop is going to turn down the festival after what Dre accomplished. I think/hope from here on out they will have some great hip-hop in the first few lines.
Artist that are ready without a doubt include the following: Outkast, Em and the Beastie Boys. Atmosphere would be able to hold it down. He is the best hip-hop show I've seen next to Jay Z (on the King of Thrones tour). I really like 50 Cent live too. He gets the crowd hyped.
