I was not granted knowledge to the remainder of the lineup, but I imagine that most of the speculated names are a given or highly likely. My source did however mention that there would be 2 reunions not already touring that would take part at the fest but wouldn't make that big of a splash as prior reunions taken place at Coachella (Sleater-Kinney, Ride). He did mention though, that GV did lock in an electronic act (The Knife) that has been requested for for years and would finally be gracing the Polo Fields next year. Once again, Daft Punk will not be there.

Editors European tour ends March 19 with U.S. dates to follow. They are long overdue for a Coachella return and things are looking good for 2014 (i.e., new album and tour).
Muse and NIN would never play the same night
Replace Florence with The National and you'd have one of my favorite top bills in years.
Monklish is always such a fun read. Hasn't the entire "one headliner + two subheadliners" formula been put to bed in exchange for a second line of five or six strong acts anyway? I think Lorde stands just as good a chance as Flo does with wherever she sits on the poster.
Edit: One thing that did bug me about the way they set up the stages last year so that at least on Twitter, they touted every subheadlinerish band who was the last act on whatever stage that wasn't the main stage as being a "headliner." In previous years, there the last act wasn't always the strongest act fit for that stage and you didn't feel so bad if you missed some unfortunate small buzz band against Radiohead, but last year, that Phoenix vs. Sigur Ros vs. New Order conflict made me suspect that the word "headliner" is being redefined.
