Nine Inch Nails
Deadmou5e/Netrual Milk Hotel
Is my latest guess
What makes anyone think that NIN will headline Coachella, outside of NIN touring live in 2013? The tour ends before 2014, at which point Trent will probably either take a break, start working on new material, or take HTDA for another spin. His options sort of make Coachella seem like a major stretch. I mean... do you really want OSLs previous year leftovers anyway? Give Paul and NIN a break. Let them come to us when it's time. Unless NIN is going to open for... DAFT PUNKZZZZ.
Festival headliners have always been incestuous between promoters.
Couple months back Eric Avery more or less said the Nails tour will run through much of 2014:
Avery wrote. "I just got home from a year of heavy travel with Garbage, the idea of leaving town for another year and a half, and with all the intensity that Nails demands . . . fortunately my friend Trent understands all this and appreciated my pulling the plug now instead of deep into 2013 and 14."

It wont be a OSL leftovers because it will be a different stage set up and setlist.Its been Nine Years since Nine Inch Nails played coachella which that 2005 set was fantastic!.
As big as everyone makes Daft Punk to be they didnt sell out shows if I remember correctly in 2006 or 2007.I remember losing my coachella ticket the night before waiting to get into the camping area at coachella 2006 and only sunday was sold out at the box office.
All North American venues sold well, though couple were on the small side like Seattle or the gig near Toronto. I think they can do 20-25 arena gigs in North America, easy.
BTW, McCartney also had walk up tickets available at Coachella.
Did you swallow? Something tells me your memory is better than mine.
Also, their arena set up apparently does not work outdoors. We'll see.
Pearl Jam doing 2 nights at the Sports Arena in LA the last week of November makes them a long shot, if not totally ruling them out.
Plus, their new album hasn't even dropped yet. So the setlist for Coachella could be significantly different than Lolla's. Though that staging and production was top notch.
There's threads in the passes forum here that go into further detail.
Hopefully the arena shows get longer shows and setlists focused away from casual fans.
