Well in 2002 they were pretty big but not close to what they are now. I find it interesting that RHCP has headlined 3 times since Foo Fighters have been to Coachella. The Foos are bound to happen, I'd say sooner than later.

possible first time headliners...
Motley Crue reunion
Some shitty band I could care less about with some whining b as the singer
Some hippity hop act that again I could care less about (I respect rappers more than all techno 'beat makers')
a decent band that that couldn't draw 15,000 for their own show in their home town
Dip Set Reunion
Also Cut Copy WILL NEVER BE A HEADLINER.. and U2 won't headline anytime soon.
Will Pharrell William's hat make an appearance?
Bowie with guest appearance by Mick Jagger
