2013 (pattern suggest upcoming Mon/Tues 81/80 Days)
Looking at the past decade, 2013 is running a little behind, but still in line with 2009/2004. It's been Mon/Tue for 8 of the past 9 lineup announcements.
I'm sorry but this suggests absolutely nothing
Money dispute - according to Consequence of Sound
So it was Patton?
Except that the Rolling Stones are not playing.

IMO, I think Coachella crowds can be be a fickle bunch. Look at the 10-15,000 people that didn't show up W1 Friday in 2012 because of a tiny bit of rain.
Plus Isle of Wight has been advertised as a Stone Roses UK Festival exclusive for 2013.
No word yet on the Roses in North America, but I'm very optimistic.

It would take multiple absolutely monumental fucking terrible lineups in succession to even put a small dent in that demand, and reaching that standard would require intentional sabotage. Coachella has built itself up to be enough of a destination in and of itself, regardless of whether the lineup is a 10 or a 6, and tearing that back down to 2008 range is virtually impossible at this stage. The festival is a runaway success, and even average to below average lineups for the next 4-5 years running would still maintain two weekend sellouts.

I think someone is jealous of bumblebee's meticulous attention to detail...
EVERYONE lost money in 2008. It was an economically terrifying year for the whole country. A bunch of festivals went flat out belly up that year. The fact that GV threw Prince on with only a month to go is testament to what badass motherfuckers they are.
If they can give us a better show, they will.
On the cruise Tollett said there's demand for 4 Coachellas(post lineup) which I find to be hyperbole. Summer 2011 presale did 65,000 passes in business for 2 weekends(spring 2012) and never "sold out" during the 14 day(?) onsale period. I'm now supposed to believe they can sell 320,000 passes? Ebay prices for passes in March get relatively near face value.
A couple bad lineups would mean sellouts only occur in the weeks leading up to the festival. Look at the Glastonbury 2008 example or all the other festivals that come/go every year. Why isn't there a multiday festival(not Phish) in the Northeast US that competes with the "big 4"? Not even Goldenvoice succeeded with All Points West.
Both S.S. Coachella cruises had hundreds of unsold spots. Why didn't the 200,000 person demand overflow for Indio Coachella buy them?
Those are a lot of very dumb question. Coachella isn't just a name you can slap on anything and have it be a success. All Points West wasn't even run by GV, it was run by AEG, and it showed. S.S. Coachella was a completely new attempt to do a much higher-end version of the music cruise thing. Nobody had ever done something that luxurious on a music cruise before. Also, it left from Florida. Next year when it leaves from California, it will sell out.
What's a "patten"? Is it like a patent? Mike Patton?
Billboard and other online sources point to GV running APW.
fuck you guys speculating if they can or cant sell out without an amazing lineup, of course they can, and i doubt that with 150+ acts that there can even be a full on shit fest lineup.
the stones are out...
who takes their place????
who do we have for headliner potential??
daft punk still?
blur...(fuck no not in the states)
