First lineup poster




Looks like I was relatively accurate. Neil Young, The Chemical Brothers, Armin Van Buuren and a name bigger than the Killers is suspiciously absent. Here's to hoping that some things change, but seriously...THROBBING GRISTLE? I wish I could have called that one. Glad Gang Gang Dance made it after all, too.

good job, lineup is fairly boring though.

LameCake said...

I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!

very well played, nice work putting up with the negative vibes too...it's a decent lineup but it is fairly meh i think to anyone thinking about flight/hotel etc. If i lived in cali and only had ticket plus a little travel then I would be all over it...

Anonymous said...

actually what i mean is its a lot of money for me b/c the acts that I love on the lineup will be come closer to me and aren't that expensive to see...Killers and Amy are meh and I'm not a Cure/MBV kinda guy...but to each their own!

Anonymous said...

There will be an add pushing the Killers down. Maybe in a month or two time.

Anonymous said...

is anyone else suprised/sad that KOL arent on the lineup? =(

Chris said...

Lineup is great! Can't wait to see who is added (please Prodigy and/or Chems)!

YouHadToBeThere said...

soooo dissapointing to not see Basement Jaxx on there but you can't win 'em all, i guess. i'm not even the least bit interested in Morrissey... except to be as far away from that stage as possible when he's on it. i love her music but i don't believe Amy Winehouse will actually make it to Coachella and onto the stage. if she does i'll be there for sure! the line up is not too exciting but The Cure will be amazing - i'm a little less enthralled because i've seen them before but it was definitely a great show. hoping for someone amazing to be added to saturday because the Killers are NOT even close to being a proper Coachella headliner (although they beat the hell out of Jack Johnson in '08!)

after ALL the extended build up, i think it's hard for anyone to be too excited about the line up. it'd be tough to live up to that amount of hyped anticipation. the lead up to the line up was more exciting than the actual thing! thanks monklish for your blog, it was fun while it lasted ;)

martin said...

MONK....do you think chemical brothers will be an addition?

James said...

Great predictions Monk. You were the one that kept me sane the last few weeks before the lineup. I appreciate all the work you did. The lineup looks amazing, expecially the addition of People Under the Stairs on Friday. I missed them in LA a few weeks back so I can't wait to see them at Coach. Thanks for everything Monk, hope you do this next year!

MCP said...

Hey Monklish.

Congrats. you got 54/66 bands correct. Here's hoping for the additions of the Chemical Brothers, Basement Jaxx or KOL.

Good job!

Anonymous said...

The moderator on the Coachella board said expect Sahara adds.

Anonymous said...

do you think chem bros, armin, and young will be added late or do you think you just had some bad info?, and any hints at this name "larger than the killers"????????

Katie said...

You rule! And I agree, excellent job putting up with the haters. There will always be skeptics, but those are miserable people anyway.

I'm also surprised to see a few acts missing, but I'm hoping for last minute additions of Prince proportions. :-)

Nonetheless, the line up is excellent and I can't wait to get to those Polo Fields!

Monklish said...

@martin: i'd be surprised if they're not on the schedule in the next few weeks.

anthony said...

hey monk,
what do you think the chances are that armin gets added? all signs point to him playing and coach needs 2 more sahara headliners..

anthony said...

hey monk,
do you think kings of leon are gonna play or pass this year? everyone seemed to think they were..

Ryan said...

monk is somebody going to make the killers a sub-headliner?

rene said...

bowie? monklish????

YouHadToBeThere said...

my bet's on bruce springsteen and the e street band as the saturday night addition.

Anonymous said...

give us ur thoughts on kings of leon =) there are lots of speculating fans. and im amazed at ur accuracy in ur predictions for this lineup. nicely done.

Anonymous said...

although it would never happen, i would be the happiest kid in the candy store if they added godspeed you! black emperor as a reunion act... the line-up could use some more epic post-rock.

Monklish said...

@Ryan: I hope things work out.

@Rene: Probably not this year.

@Anthony: Quite surprised that they're not on the lineup. We'll see if they're added.

@YouHadToBeThere: Not sure why Bruce is being speculated so much. If his LA date sells out quickly, and then he's added to Coachella, I'll be a surprised believer. Until then, I'm under the umbrella of something a bit more Dublin.

Silly said...

I don't think they'll be there. They came last year and to speculate that they would come back because they got big recently then that would mean that they would also bring back cut copy or santogold.

Monklish said...

@anon944: can't foresee Godspeed You! playing anytime soon.

@anthony: i'd say that armin still has a chance, but not as great of a chance as the chemical brothers.

Silly said...

Ew U2

Koko said...

I'm surprised adele wasn't on there

Monklish said...

Also, to those that are still emailing me to call me out as "Suprefan", I implore you to convince him to post something on my blog to prove he's me. You'll quickly discover that he doesn't have access to my blog for the mysterious reason of us being separate people.

Monklish said...

@Silly: Ew, too.

Curt said...

is there still a chance of Neil Young will get added to the lineup?

martin said...

tnx for all your help Monk..!

Anonymous said...

hey monk what about blur or bsmt jaxx??

martin said...

do you think that the addition for saturday to headline could be either (NIN, U2 or Coldplay)?

NIN is american, and its a bigger act than killers.

Sir Paul (non-american)/new
NIN (american)/repeat
The Cure (non-amercian)/repeat

Andrew said...

Do you think Primal Scream can still get added?

Ryan said...

any chance of radiohead being a late addition?

Sam said...

Do you think they'll add Neil on Saturday Monklish? That would be amazing...

suprefan said...

Hey everyone look its me. Gee you sure love having fun don't you. Stop bugging her, that is all..

YouHadToBeThere said...

Hey Monklish :)

Personally, I would prefer that you're right about our friends from Dublin gracing the Coachella stage on Saturday night. Fingers crossed!

Now... what do we have to do to get Basement Jaxx confirmed ? :)~

Anonymous said...

Late additions?
Kings of Leon
Sigur Ros
NIN
Muse
Basement Jaxx
Chemical Brothers
Orbital
Arcade Fire

Any insight as to whether any of these will be added to the lineup? Thanks.

daniel said...

have you guys noticed the heavier/punk rock bands on the lineup? Genghis Tron is like cyber grind. or Mastadon = metal. or Billy Talent ...

rene said...

one day as a lion add?

Anonymous said...

Good work, Monkish... You've been keeping us sane for the past few weeks. Here's hoping Chemical Brothers, KOL and Armin get added...

P.S. Any chance Basement Jaxx might still make it on there?

ryan shminerdlin said...

Why does everyone keep asking for One Day as a Lion? They only have 5 songs, which will total out to a 20 minute set (or 25 minutes max), and I doubt they will ever play live anyway. It was just a little side project, maybe will get more material from them in the future, but I doubt it. But I'm not sure how Zach could pull off rapping and playing the synths at the same time anyway...

rene said...

zack said they would release a full cd soon... and add more band members.

Anonymous said...

praying for the boss

Monklish said...

A band like One Day As A Lion wouldn't show up as a two piece. I'm sure that they'd hire a touring keyboardist. I wouldn't expect them to be added due to the lack of news surrounding them.

Monklish said...

Also, it's come to my attention that someone is posing as me on the Coachella board. Apparently, it's the same person who "outed" me incorrectly, and also the same person who had all of his personal contact information posted in my comments section which I politely deleted. While I'd hope that he'd realize the potential for a return of favor by ceasing posting under my name, I've been told not to expect too much out of him.

Anonymous said...

^ The person posing as you on the Coachella boards, Chose to see She wants Revenge instead of Daft Punk in 06! What a DOUCHE!

Anonymous said...

Bonnaroo just stomped Coachella with their lineup. Step it up, Paul. Get in the game. Bowie!!

Anonymous said...

The douche posting on the board as Monklish is so unfunny that he just posts as himself 99% of the time instead of posting in character. Fail.

Stephen said...

Hey Monk...anything looking good for either Faith No More, Soundgarden, or Jay Z as the real Sat Headliner?

Timothee said...

Hey Monk, what are the chances for Prodigy? i saw on their website they are not playing on the 18th or 19th anywhere, is this a sign that they might possibly be keeping it open for coachella???

James Kelly said...

the lineup is definitely worth the trip to indio, but prob not without a few survival tips...

Blakely said...

Hey so now that it is up how about rumors of who will be added

Anonymous said...

So what's the word on additions?

Anonymous said...

I just spoke with a friend that worked the Grammy's this weekend as a stage hand. He said that U2 mentioned to several people that they will be back playing LA area in April to play Coachella. It should be announced in March when they annouce their full tour.

Anonymous said...

im hearing a lot of U2 talk where i work...you gonna comment?

silly said...

please GOD. NO U2! it'll taint the weekend.

Blakely said...

I will cry if u2 goes (In a good way)

please tell me you guys aren't playing with my emotions

Anonymous said...

Oh god please let the Chemical Brothers show up. Or Beck, sure why not. I just got my ticket today and for the nay-sayers I can tell you that Paul McCartney is freaking awesome live. It is like taking drugs to see a real live Beatle. Nothing "meh" about that. Also, freaking Morrissey and My Bloody Valentine? How cool is that?

Personally I wish that Basement Jaxx would show up or how about this for an idea: Flight of the Conchords!

Anonymous said...

Flight of the Conchords have dates scheduled elsewhere during Coachella.

I have heard U2 rumors but have to put them in the same category as The Smiths, Radiohead, Daft Punk, David Bowie: bullshit. Why would livenation let their biggest contracted band help sell out a festival for their biggest competitor?

martin said...

hey Monklish... any new info... on the add acts?

Are the Chemical Brothers stil at GO????

Anonymous said...

Ticketmaster and Live Nation are about to merge together. So acts under Live Nation are actually a possibility. So if U2 was to show up it wouldn't surprise me. I holding out 4 Jay Z though. So what's with the silence Monklish? Haven't posted in awhile. Is anything true to the U2 addition?

Monklish said...

I've heard the U2 rumor, as well. I doubt it will happen, though.

toby said...

This Jay-Z crap is terrifying me. Someone please provide some credible info and shoot that rumor dead in the water. Please???

Anonymous said...

Monk, any word on when some of our lovely adds will come?... and who they might be?...

rene said...

monklish thanks... you rock... do u know if the wailers will be a late add... i think u had them on your guarantee column for a lil bit :)
