    NIN
    The Weeknd/Chance The Rapper

    I still think they might have 6 headliners if they add that second outdoor. The expansion this year was HUGE and could easily fit 6 headliner sets.

    Beyoncé/NIN
    Metallica/The Weeknd
    Chance The Rapper/Green Day

    Will be interesting to see if The National, Fleet Foxes, Vampire Weekend or some other rock band that's been on the verge can finally put out the album that pushes them to a headliner spot.

    Unless they're adding another main stage, no.

    Yeah I think Hamilton might add The Book of Mormon as an opening act too.

    Tame Impala as a headliner would be such a wet blanket.

    We know Bey is locked. Gorillaz might be in play with their announcement of a tour, or maybe we get the final A tribe called quest show? Not sure about the third

    everyone wins.

    Plus on another note I really hope this years lineup has more Rock/Alt big names on the second line vs. this year being so Rap and EDM dominant.

    I think instead of six headliners, it'll shift to three strong headliners and several new strong subs. Imagine what this lineup would have looked like drawing power wise if they added Chance the Rapper, Frank Ocean, Solange, Cage the Elephant, and Alt-J?

    It seems to me that the bottom lines they can book whoever they want, because most of those acts want to play Coachella because there are many more eligible acts than spots available. And the headliner budgets have obviously gotten to a point where they can pretty reliably book some huge stuff. But the sub budgets they have to make hard choices...Bon Iver or Chance? FJM or Solange? Justice or Alt-J? When you look at the subs available that booked many other festivals (including other GV shows), I think it's clear that this is where their tough decisions are coming from. They consistently have the strongest headliners (star power wise, at least) and the most diverse and complete undercard compared to other fests. It seems like they get to book whoever they want there. Just not on the second line.

    Anyway just random morning musings.

    EDITED: I also really do not think they added all 25,000 extra people. So I do think eventually they'll add all of them, and add the new stage.

    Metallica going to come back and play Coachella in the middle of their Europe tour? Seems unlikely but they have those two weeks open so I guess it's possible.

    This seems like the most plausible guess to me. Of course I'm dying to see Depeche Mode on there, but it doesn't seem as likely.

    I dunno, it felt like they added the 25k. People everywhere. Not packed to the point of overcrowdedness(besides the obvious places), but not sure how many more they could add.
