I'm actually surprised the Green Day has yet to headline seeing as they are a bay area band. I hope they don't repeat headliners yet. I like that this is going to be it's 6th year and have to repeat. But yes I would say Green Day is still relevant to the 18-25 crowd.
Kings Of Leon are playing in San Jose in March... would that affect an OL date in any way? I hope they don't start repeating headliners though... But if they went then maybe Local Natives could show up too because they are support for K.O.L. on their tour. Which would be magical.
Depeche isnt coming back around to tour the U.S., so unless a giant pile of money came calling, they arent coming back.
I hope Arctic Monkeys, The Pixies, M.I.A., and FIDLAR are somewhere on the lineup. Beyond disappointed to not see any of them at Coachella. HEY AT LEAST WE GOT ELLIE GOULDING AMIRITE?
In other news, Kasabian has a new album coming out this year and I would fucking kill to see them again. They were amazing at Coachella in 2012!

Hoping for FIDLAR as well... They did book Wavves last year. Also CHVRCHES Would be cool on Twin Peaks.
Amos Lee just announced an Aug 1 Red Rocks show with ZZ Ward as the opener.
Both seem like good fits.
With Dave Matthews playing the Greek in Berkeley in August, they definitely won't be headlining. Not that it was too likely since the fest has diverged from its jammy background. But its good that we can get them off the table.
EDIT: I got excited about Chicago without looking at their tour dates...they head east (with REO Speedwagon) after Red Rocks so they won't be at OSL.
just get cut copy and I'll go
Waxahatchee just announced a pretty big tour around their Coachella performance without a Bay Area date, they seem like a perfect fit for OSL.
Ok, I'll play on the way to early to predict predictions. I've tried to add some local flavor, New Orleans bands (there are always N.O. bands due to the Supafly connection), jam bands, and older favorites which is part of the make up for OSL. Some of these are straight up guesses and some have serious potential.
Bruce Springsteen or Elton John
AVCII, Foster the People, TV on the Radio, Avett Brothers
Janelle Monae, Spoon, Haim, Preservation Hall Band
Ariel Pink, Com Truise, Tycho, Kermit Ruffins, Soulive, Bumblebee
The Killers or Elton John
Cut Copy, Chromeo, Violent Femmes, M.I.A.
Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Umphreys McGee, D'angelo
Karl Denson, Charles Bradley, Tune-Yards, Run the Jewels, Suprefan
Robert Plant and the Shape Shifters, Disclosure, Trey Anastasio Band, Primus
Metronomy, Girl Talk, Kris Kristofferson, Lorde
Grimes, Ty Segall, Phantogram, Deafheaven, Xanman86
What about Tool as a headliner. They just sold out two shows at Bill Graham incredibly fast and APE always seems to bring artists around in early spring and then bring them back for OSL
can't wait for the "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" sing-a-long
EDIT: and "Someone Saved My Life Tonight" and many others... this should happen.
you're a butterfly, and butterflies are free to fly, fly away, high away. bye bye
Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band - Green Day - OutKast - Kings of Leon
And yes, a few of us have thrown Elton John in the mix already but might be more or less likely after seeing the Roo line up which comes out in a couple weeks.
Ghost B.C. dates are up and there is no SF date so I am going to assume they will be at OSL
you are soooooooo good lookin
