The final stretch.

In spite of what you've read on Twitter, lineup will be announced tomorrow.

My personal guarantee (i.e. I has sufficient knowledge that I trust these will occur, that is, I've been told that these have been making arrangements to attend the festival as contractually paid acts or clear evidence exists on the internet to confirm their attendance as a paid act):

A Place to Bury Strangers
Adele
Armin Van Buuren
Bajofondo
Band of Horses
Buraka Som Sistema
Calexico
Chairlift
The Chemical Brothers
Christopher Lawrence
Crookers

Deerhunter
Drop the Lime

K'Naan
Kings of Leon

The Killers
The Knux
The Presets
Themselves
Tinariwen
The Ting Tings
TV on the Radio
White Lies
X
Yeah Yeah Yeahs

Please don't judge me on anything below this line tomorrow:

___________________________________

Perhaps (I have faith based on certain knowledge that these should occur, that is, there have been discussions between the bands/agents and the organizers and both parties tend to agree on terms but I don't have sufficient evidence due to various reasons to believe this to be 100% true):

Alabama 3
Amanda Palmer
Basement Jaxx
Beck
Blur
Boris
Built to Spill
Comedians of Comedy
Dent May & His Magnificent Ukulele
Dirty Projectors
Dr. Dog
Estelle

Grace Potter & The Nocturnals
Jamie T
Jay Reatard
Jenny Lewis
Kimya Dawson / The Moldy Peaches / Antsy Pants (one of those)
Ladytron
Lily Allen
Lyrics Born
Moby (DJ)
The Original Wailers featuring Junior Marvin, Wya Lindo & Al Anderson
Paul Oakenfold
Robyn
Steel Pulse
The Doves
The Faint
The Heavy
The Mountain Goats
The Specials
The Thermals
Underworld
Wilco

No factual basis other than I've heard it's possible (My faith is wavering based on various factors that these might occur, that is, these names have been thrown around by the organizers and people that I know which aren't associated with organizing the festival and/or they seem relatively unlikely to occur to me on a personal level):

Amy Winehouse
Eminem
Far
Freebass
Future Sound of London
Jedi Mind Tricks
Mogwai
Social Distortion
The Sword
The White Stripes
The Vaselines
TRVSDJAM

Won't be there:
Animal Collective
Boards of Canada
Daft Punk
David Byrne/Talking Heads (bah/clearly)
Depeche Mode
Fischerspooner
Jarvis Cocker (apologies to the uber fans that asked about this 20 times in my comments section)
Oasis
PJ Harvey
Pulp
Radiohead
R.E.M.
Royksopp
Simian Mobile Disco
The Prodigy

Reunion rumors (and which ones I'll say "probably" for):
The Avalanches - probably
Big Audio Dynamite - nope
Operation Ivy - nope
Pavement - nope
Roxy Music - nope
Screaming Trees - nope
The Jam - ...
The Kinks - ...
The Replacements - probably
The Smiths - ...

I've been doing my edits on my PDA, so bare with me on the inevitable typos.

Radiohead is fixed = Not playing
Dr. Dog is fixed = Probably

I'm all for Dr. Dog. But I thought I saw Four Tet on some confirmed list a while back. Confirm? Thanks.

you're still WRONG about AC, which makes this list as much fiction now as it was when you started this attention getting device in the first place. anybody can create a list of bands playing SF or thereabouts over Coachella weekend and maybe hit 3/4's of them.

No mention of Paul McCartney at all. Wasn't he confirmed?

Thanks Monklish, you're wonderful.

What's up with the small font for Robyn and Paul Oakenfold that I had to copy/paste to read? Was that just an error, or some sort of jab?

Also, Four Tet? Are they out for good?

Anonymous said...

at anon 5:24:

Monk has said she isnt revealing the headliners. Which means that the headliners are probably not mentioned on this blog.

You do the math.

Jason said...

Monklish, you Krunklish


Thanks!

Any idea WTF about that Tweet?

PVBHF said...

when and where is this lineup being announced?

shabana said...

how about bowie?

Harrisment said...

Monklish,

Did you add that twitter part as a response to the kroq twitter update saying it's been delayed? If so, you should really make that a new post. It's very confusing since it says your post was at 11 this morning.

Monklish said...

i like robyn and find oakenfold dull. i updated from my pda earlier, so things go weird with the copying and pasting.

James said...

BRING BACK FOUR TETTTTT!

Monklish said...

@harrisment: i updated that about 10 minutes ago, i think.

Monklish said...

@shabana: bowie would be great, but he's probably impossible this year. i would love to be proven wrong on that, but all signs point to no.

Monklish said...

@pvbhf: radio, websites, newspapers, etc. when? probably before midnight. i don't really know the time. it was supposed to be in the morning, but if that's screwed up, it'll come out eventually tomorrow.

Harrisment said...

What makes you so sure it is coming out tomorrow? Why would kroq release an update tonight saying its been delayed? Just to fuck with us some more?

Harrisment said...

And weren't you sure it would come out today? What happened?

Monklish said...

Today's not over yet.

MCP said...

Hey Monklish,
I heard a rumor of a subheadliner dropping out last minute.

Have you heard anything about that?

Harrisment said...

So basically you are saying you have no idea if it's today or tomorrow.

Anonymous said...

the lineup came out on a monday last year so lets be optomistic!!!

Anonymous said...

Thanks for all you do Monklish. Are you a big Stone Roses fan? I am.

Monklish said...

Stone Roses are wonderful. I hope to see them on the lineup tomorrow. I'll be surprised if they're there, but my hopes aren't too high on that one.

Good news / bad news: I've found out that the Yeah Yeahs Yeah are confirmed, and sadly, I've removed the Prodigy from contention.

I'm hoping for more information in the morning, but I'm probably not going to get much more before the festival releases the lineup.

Wait...I thought you knew the headliners, Monklish? Aren't you going to reveal them and see if your right?

Im interning for Goldenvoice right now and I'll have you guys know your in for a treat. I can't tell you guys who because that would be a breach of contract, but lets just say someone is moving around their European tour dates to make an appearance at Coachella.

chill out, man. if you don't like it then why are you here adding views to her page for all that phat advertising money? save it for someone who cares.

Monklish said...

I wish that I made "phat advertising money". It's currently at $7. I use AdSense because it satisfied my curiousity of monitoring page views. Don't bother clicking on the boring ads, though.

Adam said...

come on monklish beat kroq to the punch we all want to hear it form you not some stupid vj's who dont even know half the bands!

Ryan said...

.......are you admitting you are a fraud and you did this all to get hits for your ads? I need to take a minute to process the shit storm you just threw my way.

rene said...

i hate radio stations... down with them all...

Monklish said...

Also, I'm not certain how my not posting the headliners makes me a fraud. I can't tell you the headliners, per se, because it will probably kill off my ability to do this with relative anonymity.

I got ahold of Scooper from the Coachella board, told him my views on the headliners, and when the dust settles, hopefully, he can vouch for my "truthiness". Judge my guaranteed lineup. My goal is 100% on that section. I'm going to be ballsy and move probably bands up to my guarantee mark if I wake up prior to the announcement.

Also, I have been a very good sport about this whole thing. I've allowed anonymous people to punishment me with a "cum guzzling slut" for me trying to give an informed opinion, I suppose. I've only deleted one comment out of the 500+ comments left on this blog. I objected to its malicious use of racial slurs.

Ryan said...

Oh my monklish, you are so noble to take such hurtful comments in stride. How cruel the internet can be to a poor poor unsuspecting blogger, such as yourself. Bravo, my dear monklish! Bravo! You shall overcome!

And scooper is a bigger bag of dicks than you are. I would trust you before I would trust him. And that's saying alot.

Monklish said...

@Ryan: take it for whatever you want.

@Adam: the DJs will know a lot of the bands, well.

Adam said...

monklish i have supported you this entire time i am just curious how can scoop vouch for you if he doesn't publish the headliners before kroq announces how do we know that you two arent working together to boost eachothers reputations as bloggers? one of you must post...

Adam said...

i was being facetious by stating the dj's would not know the bands, my point being that kroq is an awful radio station and kevin and bean are awful dj's the true coachella fans are the bloggers like me and you who spend months predicting the line-up, we are the ones who should hear first, and release the info first, not some sell out dj's who can care less who plays come on monklish i know you agree!

Monklish said...

@Adam: I clearly didn't think this through very well.

Adam said...

instead of using sarcasm why not just give the honest reason why you wont announce a mere 6 hours before the line-up is announced, i can assure you there aren't many people awake right now refreshing your page like i am, why not help the real fans?

rene said...

go monklish! release it! :)

mickey h said...

i saw what you posted on the broklynvegan or whatever. you said the killers, no doubt, and u2 are the headliners? i pray to god this is not true and if it is i hope people still go to insinuate riots..

Anonymous said...

No u2 please :(

Monklish said...

I haven't posted on BrooklynVegan in quite awhile. I definitely wouldn't post that No Doubt (not playing) and U2 are there.

Monklish said...

1 American headliner
2 Non-American headliners
1 Repeat headliner
2 New headliners

mickey h said...

"As of today, U2 and No Doubt are now officially committed to headline Coachella, along with The Killers. The lineup was intended to be released today, but due to problems seeking headliners (everyone else said no), it will be coming next week instead.

@mickey, the last post by me on there was January 12, 2009 5:59 PM. should explain things.

Monklish said...

@rene, I don't have the entire lineup, so it's quite possible seeing that molotov played a Goldenvoice venue a couple days ago.

mickey h said...

so you were so sure 2 weeks ago.. what happen? they were dropped out and replaced by then? and why can you post headliners there but not here?

nin... smiths and paul... one wink? for ya :)

@mickey, i have never posted headliners for this year on there. other people get a kick out of posting using my name.

Adam said...

sorry, thanks for all the help, as you can tell there are just a lot of anxious fans, and now that we know its coming in 5 hours, the anxiety is reaching a fever pitch, haha, but seriously thanks for the help, any more hints you would like to share other then nationality or whether or not they have been at coachella, album titles? hints?

umm but you just said it was you


"my last post was on the 12th.."

unless I don't know something huge, no u2

daniel said...

damn kroq just said they don't have it because it's not finalized!
damn!

Jaime said...

Thanks Monklish!! do you know what's happening? why are they delaying it?

Adam said...

@ Anon 6:51 am, read it again. She specifically says no U2 or No Doubt. This is getting painfully nerve-wracking...The lineup is still not finalized!? This makes me more nervous than ever

daniel said...

the djs said they it's not finalized due to some "big names". so yeah...

Sam said...

It's 7:28 and I've been listening since 7:18 so I doubt they're going to announce it/say anything.

Dexter said...

well hooray for crookers!!! :)

Jaime said...

They already said that the lineup it's not finalized

Adam said...

pleaseeee monklish kevin and bean are killing me

failed state said...

ok monk it's go time.... fuck em all blow us away, time to drop the lineup!!!

Chris said...

I'm guessing that the big names = MACCA and/or The Smiths.

Hopefully the big names are Bowie & MBV but I doubt it.

You moved Yeah Yeah Yeahs to the first tier???? FUCK YES!!!

I would be psyched if they are there. Love u Monklish.

Obviously if Monklishs' guarantee list is correct the 3 headliners will be Morrissey, Paul McCartney, and Neil Young.

Mr. Mxyztplk (pronunciado mix-yez-pit-el-ick) said...

i think there´s no Coachella in 2009. Sorry, sad but true.
it´s the only possible explanation for all this delay in announcing the lineup, and monklish refusing to give any info.

If Kevin and Bean don't have the lineup because they haven't finalized the line up, which you would assume is at least one of the headliners, how could you know the headliners? I mean seriously they wouldn't hold everything up for a second tier performer.

Hey everybody...things change. Maybe the lineup was supposed to come out on Monday (like she said) then it was changed. Maybe she knew the headliners but something is happening last minute. Things change. Take it easy. If you don't like the site don't come here (and please, please don't come to coachella...)

rene said...

i think there fucking broke... those bastards... they did this in 01 no headliner til like 2 weeks before, because of they lost money in 99. very low attendance last year because of a line up that wasnt too great especially sunday. my guess is reuniting ratm broke there back.

Roisin Murphy would be awesome!! I hope my prayers aer listened...

1st jack johnson in 08... now this waiting crap... and britney... tsk tsk tsk... hehehhe :) whats next? drop one of the headliners monklish :) plz or some more hints... those are fun.

James Kelly said...

the lineup is looking close to finished. where are the gaps..?

Monklish said...

@MCP844: sometimes I screw up my own rules. I'll say it, Paul McCartney is headlining.

Anonymous said...

monklish - when can we expect the lineup?

DIOYY said...

Interesting. He's a legend and all, but there seems to be a disconnect with fans of Coachella vs fans of Sir Paul. Is Dave Grohl going to accompany him on drums like the Grammy's have announced? That would help a bit.

Monklish said...

I'm also 99% convinced that the Smiths won't be there.

bludevil007 said...

who cares who drums? you either like sir paul or not - i think he's a lame headliner, but there are three others. one of the others is probably one of morrissey, neil young and the killers, so i need the third to be something great

TeamCoachellaHellYeah said...

Paul McCartney is finally confirmed Monk? who else? And who could possibly be holding up the line up?

bludevil007 said...

monklish, i'm going to go out on a limb and interpret your comment to mean that morrissey will be one of the headliners and if it ends up a smiths reunion, so be it.

McCartney, Morrissey - so far headliners arent so good.

MCP said...

Hey Monklish. Thanks for revealing Paul McCartney.

Just one more thing:

Suddenly, people are talking about Bruce Springsteen, but that just seems wrong. I mean, isn't he rumored to play Bonnaroo? I doubt Coachella and Bonnaroo would share headliners. Also, he's playing a show in L.A. couple of nights before.

Do you have an opinion on this?

Monklish said...

Morrissey isn't headlining, as far as I know.

TeamCoachellaHellYeah said...

holy shit! MBV and Paul McCartney are on the confirmed list now? I might be all set for this Coachella now if those pan out...

Monklish said...

Also, to clarify things, I've bolded names that I've co-opted from either the Coachella Message Board or other websites. I found the evidence behind these sufficient.

the REAL bluedevil50 said...

Hmm, are you sure Oasis is NOT going to be there?

Monklish said...

@anon1150: I'll try to keep clear of Bakersfield, then.

Jay said...

MBV and Leonard Cohen are now guaranteed?

martin said...

mon....whats the word on NIN?

Monklish said...

@Jay: I put Cohen on my list the other day because there's been a lot of rumblings about him playing. His tour starts in early April in or near Texas, and now other Coachella gossip sites are listing him as rumored, so I believe my source.

Monklish said...

I'm inclined to believe that ther will be no NIN unless Trent brings them out in a smaller, different form.

Anonymous said...

What about the Doves or Spoon? Also IS Wilco likely?

Thank Monk I come here before the board

Anonymous said...

If NIN is not there then we are basically doomed to have Jane's Addiction as a headliner?

devobrain said...

Monklish, If MBV and Leonard Cohen with Paul McCartney are really on that poster, then I will be sorry for all the bad things I thought about you. You seem pretty sure of yourself though, so this makes me really happy.

Monklish said...

@anon845: My only contact with nationocean has been this current post and an earlier one where I was reviewing other leakers and said that he/she was full of shit based on the rumors he/she was posting. As far as I know, I've never met someone from the internet.

What's Really Happening...

It's time for the annual Coachella denial. (11.21.2007 NEWS: BOWIE AT COACHELLA 2008...NOT)

The story goes that David Bowie was in talks to perform his Ziggy Stardust album at the festival this year, the rumour really took hold and the 'news' was reported online around the globe and in the English press.

You may have already seen the denial over at NME.com, but I'm sure the majority of you saw this tale for what it was anyway: poppycock!

However, we feel duty-bound to deny this particular story here too, lest members be fleeced of their hard-earned.

While we're about it, David Bowie does not have a Twitter account.


Total Blam Blam - (BowieNet News Editor)

Monklish said...

@anon1207, probably not.


also, lunchtime. goodbye.

martin said...

Tnx Mon...

So i dont see any hardcore band, only soft rock on the lineup... hopefully the last headliner is not soft rock, like coldplay or oasis...

Anonymous said...

NIN is going to tour as a 4 piece band and not have the elaborate stage set up from the most recent tour run. You can put them in likely list. Trent still hasn't announced tourdates yet and he isn't one to keep quiet on that matter when he is pretty much in control of things.

So do let us know when the lineup is announced, please.

Thank you for everything! Looking forward to the lineup... and all of these bowie talk is starting to freak me out a little bit :)

Wow you finally pulled that Boards of Canada shit off. Totally stupid to have said it to begin with. You were just pulling that name out of your ass just as you have done with most of these acts. You know it's not hard to scan a bunch of label and touring sites and make a giant list of likely bands and get about 75% right, and not mention any headliners as well (to cover your ass of not knowing shit). I could do this exact thing you have done. In fact I'll start a fucking blog next year to do this exact thing. Seriously you're a scam. And what is this "emailing and discussing with scooper about headliners"????? What the fuck does Scooper know? Because he started a rumor thread on the message board? That somehow qualifies him as being some legit source to discuss headliners in secret??? This whole thing is a fucking joke and so are you.

Im interning for Goldenvoice right now and I'll have you guys know your in for a treat. I can't tell you guys who because that would be a breach of contract, but lets just say someone is moving around their European tour dates to make an appearance at Coachella.

probably bs, but i'm praying for it to be dylan until one of these insiders crushes my hopes.

Starr said...

Paul McCartney
Jane's Addiction
Neil Young

That fits Monklish's formula at least. 1 American, 2 non-American, 1 repeat headliner, two new headliners. Not bad really, especially with Morrissey, MBV, Leonard Cohen and hopefully one more pleasant surprise on the undercard.

Seriously 90% of the bands on Monklish have confirmed dates via myspace or other touring/label sites. Making a list like that isn't hard to. If Monk was to go out on a limb and reveal her PREDICTIONS for the headliners/sub headliners for each day instead of just saying "I won't reveal em (aka I don't know shit)" then I would take her (him) seriously.

Adam, suck a fucking dick motherfucker, if your such a tough guy then let's settle his at Coachella fucking pussy cock sucker..

Yeah that's what I thought, now shut the fuck up unless your down too settle this like a man.

Monk is a fucking fraud, as I and many others have said, she's just guessing shit and wont actually name anything in the end so she doesnt get found out too being the fraud scam artist, internet manipulator she is, making $1000's of dollars of our hits.

Whats so hard that you cant fucking "predict" who's playing? It's not like your announcing the lineup too the world, just fucking predict who you think is the headliners or shut the fuck up whore.

And Adam, fuck you pussy, the only readon my post show as anon is cuz im not a blogger faggot like you and dont have a blog, if you want too settle this like a man though, im game, let's see who the pussy is now.
