I don't think I was productive at all those past two weeks of January last year. That was a hard wait. I wore out my F5 button and was glued to that 600 page rumors thread. For the sake of productivity/sanity Please let it be January 7th.

Catchphrase and wigs and the jokes are lame...
While they never replicate what they do exactly, making year to year comparisons more difficult, I am going to be optimistic and say the earlier than usual Facebook photos and the earlier than usual promo video indicates that this will be an earlier year. Seems that generally once its ready its released, with the caveat that the day is usually early in the week so as to capitalize on a end of week sale. I wouldn't be too surprised to see it drop this Monday/Tuesday, sort of like the timeline for 2012's release.
I have to assume that the delay last year was them scrambling to book those shitty headliners.
I'm also going to assume that they are going out of their way this year to correct all the wrongs of last year so I think it's safe to say that it'll be out at the latest, the 20th. Probably the week of the 13th - 17th. I'm going with the 14th.
That is the day that I will be upset that Muse is a headliner.
If memory serves, Coachella usually spends like a week teasing acts with YouTube links of the like they tweeted today, but a week from today would be Friday, and they tend to release the lineup early in the week.
Would that mean they're releasing the line up early next week or early the week after that?
They've done the video thing twice, in 2011 and 2012.
2012 - Azealia Banks, aarabMuzik, Jimmy Cliff, Breakbot, Housse de Rocket, the Weeknd (lineup released a couple hours after the Weeknd)
2011 - (order not correct) Trentemoller, Monarchy, Tame Impala, Fanfarlo, Phantogram, Lightning Bolt...don't remember if the lineup was released on the same day as a video
So since they seem to like to release early in the week, five videos with the lineup later the night of the fifth video isn't entirely out of the question.
