More like 4 months in advanced now... Sir Paul will be there, but not on stage. I think NIN is the third, with AF and Outkast as the "confirmed" other two. I would love if this year had dual headliners each day... if that even makes sense.
Outkast/?? - i think Eminem or do i even say Daft Punk...?
Bashing is fully welcome. i am just bored getting pissed off watching this stupid Cris Angel show....
if we're predicting before the lineup drops, then more like six-and-a-half weeks
Ya, that is true...
What gets me is how QOTSA/NIN/Depeche/fun. fit into the headline spots not already unofficially occupied by Arcade/Outkast.
I like how fans have kind of given up hope of Daft Punk or treat it like an afterthought. TOOL need an album, so 2015 at the earliest for them.
Are you insured by Survival?
Sooooo.... ruling LostProphets out?
Thanks for the advice. Nice sig.
Buddy of mine and I had a conversation about NIN headlining and tossed around the idea that GV may skip on Trent and the crew because of how many festivals/shows they've already played in the past year, much like Bjork this year. I dont usually make a "this is who i think will headline" post, but my prediction is:
and I'm stickin' to it!

If that were to happen and i died on the monday morning after coachella. I would die happy.
Certain songs they get so scratched into our souls
Still think Foo Fighters deserve a mention in the Third Headliner speculation.
- They've always been in the upper echelon of the KROQ headliner. Appeals to the bros without offending the sensibilities of everyone else.
- It'd be their first U.S. show in about two years.
- Surprisingly, it's been quite a while since the Foos played Coachella. I think the last time was 2002?
- New album is coming sometime next year, my guess would be sometime sooner than later.
- Awesome opportunity to get on a bill with Grohl's buddies in Queens. And can you imagine QOTSA > Foo on Friday?
Im sticking to Metallica for Friday.
Gotta promote that home release of their 3D movie ya dig.
Sept 22 2012 was their last "proper" show, 14 months ago.
I think all the FF members played non FF songs together 7-8 months ago at the Sound City gigs.
Nirvana will be inducted in the RRHOF in NYC the same week as Coachella.
I'm sure that after the Volcano, Cee Lo and Sly Stone that GV have rules about travel immediately before the fest. Acts that do 2-3 festivals in the same weekend are usually closer cities like Lolla/Osheaga or nearby countries in Europe.
Especially on headliners, jet lag and travel can be tough on the voice. Pavement sucked at Sasquatch when they also played Primavera the same weekend.
Foo Fighters rumours also presume that the following be true:
-GV want them after ignoring them for 12 years
-the album is done
-Grohl would be willing to rehearse for 2 completely different events in March.
Let Lolla have Foo after the new albume comes out and book them for 2015 if the new album is great and they're showing something interesting live.
The poster's out in 6-8 weeks, they won't be there in 2014.
If they play a shit ton of new material at those mexico shows in a couple weeks, then they could headline.
