Lineup Monday, no wait Tuesday...

Actually, it'll come out on the 26th, as I've been saying for the last week or two. I hate being misquoted. I'm misquoted often.

Don't judge me on anything other than what's in my personal guarantee grouping. I should have used a word other than "Probably" because the vast majority of you can't grasp what the difference between "Probably" and "My personal guarantee" are, so "Probably" is now "Perhaps" because I don't want to read all the complaints when a "Probably" isn't on the lineup. In a few days, you can judge for yourself how you felt about the accuracy of this blog, and feel free to let me know if you want this to continue next year (monklish@gmail.com). However, let it be known that there were an above-average number of bad apples posting in my comments section, even by internet terms, so the likelihood of this venture continuing in this form have dropped severely.

Also, the term "Budgetchella" has been thrown around too often. There will have been some money spent, and most of you will like the upper tier of the lineup. And though I hate to admit it, it appears that I was rather wrong about some claims that I had made about acts that "absolutely will not be there" (per my words--paraphrased, not per reality). Personally, this is shaping up to be my favorite lineup, yet.

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
Chairlift
The Chemical Brothers
Crystal Castles
Deerhunter
Drop the Lime
Evil Nine
Fleet Foxes
Franz Ferdinand
Girl Talk
Glasvegas
Gui Boratto
Hercules and Love Affair
The Hold Steady
Instituto Mexicano Del Sonido
The Killers
Kings of Leon
Kode9
Late of the Pier
Los Campesinos
Lupe Fiasco
Lykke Li
Morrissey
Mr Oizo
N.A.S.A
Neil Young
No Age
Noah and the Whale
O'Death
Paul Weller (of the Jam)
Peanut Butter Wolf
Primal Scream
Public Enemy
Roni Size
Sebastian Tellier
The Airborne Toxic Event
The Black Keys
The Bloody Beetroots
The Bug
The Gaslight Anthem
The Knux
The Original Wailers featuring Junior Marvin, Wya Lindo & Al Anderson
The Presets
Themselves
Tinariwen
The Ting Tings
TV on the Radio
White Lies

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
Animal Collective
Basement Jaxx
Beck
Blur

Boards of Canada
Boris
Built to Spill
Comedians of Comedy
Dent May & His Magnificent Ukulele
Dirty Projectors
Estelle
Friendly Fires
Flying Lotus
Gang Gang Dance
Grace Potter & The Nocturnals
Jamie T
Jay Reatard
Jenny Lewis
Leonard Cohen
Kimya Dawson / The Moldy Peaches / Antsy Pants (one of those)
The Knux
Ladytron
Lily Allen
Mastodon
Moby (DJ)
My Bloody Valentine
Paul Oakenfold
Robyn
Steel Pulse
The Faint
The Heavy
The Mountain Goats
The Prodigy
The Specials
The White Stripes

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):

Eminem
Far
Freebass
Future Sound of London
Jedi Mind Tricks
Mogwai
Paul McCartney
Radiohead
Royksopp
Social Distortion
The Sword
The Vaselines
TRVSDJAM
Yeah Yeah Yeahs

Won't be there:
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.
Simian Mobile Disco



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 Kinks - ...
The Replacements - probably
The Smiths - ...
The Stone Roses - ...

More edits later on if I hear back from people.

I enjoy reading this. 90% of what is posted on the internets is hate speech, that's to be expected. It's the expected thing. Don't worry about it.

How about headliner clues?

Yeah, The Smiths are totally headlining.

Everybody is wrong time to time but I admire that u continue to post after ppl act like a$$holes. Keep it up Monklish

Anonymous said...

Thanks for the time spent in this blog, i know there has been an anormous amount of douches complaining just about everything.

I like the idea of the surprise headliners.

You know anything about Digitalism or Soulwax?

Also is it tru that animal collective isn't playing? that would be a huge bummer.

Keep on the good work! (Just ignore all the douchebags)

SPTheGhost said...

Still no hiphop. Sad faces all around.

CN said...

Come on. Post your headliner predictions. Either way, we are going to be surprised when everything becomes official.

Anonymous said...

Wait, why isn't SMD under the "not playing" list? They still have dates scheduled during all three days.

Monklish said...

fixed the Simian Mobile Disco typo. i work from Notepad and cut/copy/paste a lot.

Anonymous said...

I figured as much. Was hoping those dates got postponed.

Anonymous said...

Hey Monklish...can u at least say when the lineup is supposed to drop? I think its pretty lame that Goldenvoice cant at least give some news about that...even at least on the messageboards just say not coming this week. They dont even have to give a day.

rene said...

keep you head up monklish... any word on saul williams? or one day as a lion? or ziggy marley?

Trudeau said...

Great blog, please keep it up. A couple things:

1) I was under the impression Mastodon was confirmed?

2) The Smiths...headlining...hmm!

3) Finally...wow, Boards of Canada still on your "probably" list. I'm well aware of what "probably" means but even that is enough to make me grin, from ear to ear.

Anonymous said...

How is it that you have the exact same headliners as the Coachella board speculative page?

Jaime said...

TV on The Radio is on the personal guarantee list and on the probable list...

Monklish said...

@anon1144: i haven't posted headliners. i think you're confused and just reading what I bolded instead of reading any of the words that precede the bolded section.

Monklish said...

@Jaime: fixed the TVOTR error. Thanks for pointing it out.

Also, I've clarified the front page a lot. I hope that this makes it easier for people, now.

daniel said...

"And though I hate to admit it, it appears that I was rather wrong about some claims that I had made about acts that 'absolutely will not be there'"

i'm not sure how deep to read into that, you tease ;)

thank you very much for keeping this up.
my life has been revolving around this blog forever now!

Hey Monklish, do you have any info on Cut/Copy returning this year???

Thx in advance.

Adam said...

hey monklish thanks for your help, you are the only guy on the boards that seems to have any sort of credibility, anyway you can confirm beck?

Anonymous said...

You have said The Killers are headlining many times. Guess that was wrong.

Super Awesome Guy said...

Thank you! It seems as though some of the names you have mentioned are big enough to headline any day... if there are bigger names out there I will be blown away!

Anonymous said...

Dude, great job

It's been entertaining to check back here and what's changed.

Hope to see this blog next year...

Anonymous said...

Im hoping for Groove Armada live.....

Anonymous said...

The delay in the line up is being caused because Paul had moved the festival earlier to accomodate a huge headliner who pulled out at the last minute.

Word is the line up isn't as good as this year's Langerado.

That's the reason for the delay.

Anonymous said...

I call BS on that last post.

Anonymous said...

getting exciting now.

thanks for the updates and new info. i appreciate the value of surprises, but would like to know if YOU know the 3 headliners? just y or n.

also the lineup release date...not sure how you would have that info...an explanation would be appreciated.

"Word is the line up isn't as good as this year's Langerado."

God I hope that's not true. Langerado has the worst festival lineup I have ever seen.

Monklish said...

i want to talk to scoop from the coachella board. someone have him/her email me: monklish@gmail.com

Tickle Me Elmo said...

PM sent.

Ryan said...

Langerado gets too much hate. Despite the lack of headliners that lineup kicks some serious ASS this year. It really surprises me all the flack it's been getting I wouldn't mind going, but I won't. I can only hope that Coachella picks up some of those acts... *cough*Broken Social Scene, Tortoise and George Clinton*cough*

Harry said...

what is your authority?

Tickle Me Elmo said...

Are Brian Jonestown Massacre playing?

Monklish said...

I haven't heard anything regarding them, but they're playing a GV venue (Club Nokia) before the festival and ending their tour before Coachella starts, so it doesn't seem out of question that GV would throw some old friends a few bones and let them play the festival.

Monklish said...

Langerado has some good acts, but their top tier act gets all the press because it's on par with a bad Street Scene lineup.

Monklish said...

Also, in regards to a "headiner" pulling out, simply not true.

Monklish said...

Haven't heard anything about Cut/Copy, though I honestly wouldn't expect a return.

Carligula said...

Thanks for the analysis, Monklish. I enjoy the well-organized blog. I'm just wondering if you've heard anything about The Cure. I think it's odd that a former Coachella headliner (and last year's Sasquatch headliner) released an album last October, but no one is talking about them as a possible headliner for 09. Is it because of Robert Smith's fear of flying? Do people assume they would have announced a US tour by now?

I also think Oasis makes a lot of sense (they have a break from mid-April to early June in which they could do a handful of US shows). Is their extensive tour the reason you think they won't play? Or do you have more info on that?

Once again, good job on the blog

Great work, Monklish. Thank you very much for your dedication. Fuck the haters. *Keeping fingers crossed for BoC*

Hey Monklish, this list is great.My friends and I have been keeping up on your blog for the past couple months trying to keep up with all the bands. I know it has taken a lot of work, but it is definitely appreciated since those shmucks over at gv seem to be keeping there mouths closed longer each year. Don't let these haters get you down.

Monklish, thank you for this list.


Any word on Modest Mouse? If The Smiths really do play, Johnny Marr will be there anyways..

Monklish homie - I think what your doing is bomb. Keep it up. F**k the haters. I hope you return with this blog next year.

Oh and dude, keeping the headliners a surprise is totally badass.

Anonymous said...

I don't know if you have contacted scoop or not, but I sent him a PM for you Monk..

Jeff said...

If you don't release who you think the headliners are how are we going to fully gauge your accuracy? Coachella headliners are known for being hard to guess...

Tickle Me Elmo said...

So we all know The Killers are playing Saturday. Question is... are they headlining?

rene said...

monklish... one day as a lion? saul williams? :) plz

Monklish said...

@elmo: no
@rene: i'll see if i can find out for you.
@Jeff: i have until Monday to post them, it seems, so I'm working on a 3rd party plan.

Harry said...

Daniel - what rhymes with The Sniffs? The Spliffs?

Monklish - what makes your list more authoritative than mine? Do you has more win?

Monklish said...

don't know who you are Harry.

Harry said...

That's not really the point Monklish. My question is why should I believe your list? That's the third time I've asked and I'm beginning to believe it's pointless to keep asking. I guess no one knows anything about the lineup this year...

Anonymous said...

I find it interesting that people assume that you're male. How do you feel about that?

Kudos on the blog.

Monklish said...

Well, Harry, I did alright for myself last year. I revealed that Prince, Portishead, Kraftwerk and Roger Waters were playing before the lineup was announced, but I was also adamant that the Black Kids weren't playing.

But really, the burden of proof isn't on me. I don't force anyone to believe me, because everything I say is measurable in the long run.

Monklish said...

@anon109: I don't really care what people assume, because I don't plan on meeting the vast majority of the people that have chosen to judge me. I was a bit pissed about some comment that I had to be a male because "a girl wouldn't care about Coachella this much". I don't plan on posting a picture of me with "monklish" written on my boobs anytime soon. I don't see why it's too terribly important. I don't care nor have a clue to the gender of the Brooklyn Vegan. I'm assuming that Scott Stereogum is a guy, but that's just due to lack of female Scotts in my life.

Monklish said...

Also, if the Smiths aren't on the lineup, I don't want to hear one thing about my Smiths prediction being wrong or people upset with me leading them on about something they've desired to happen. If the Smiths are on the lineup, I don't want credit for revealing it. I've had a change of heart, because someone let me know that it's less impossible to occur than I've been lead to believe in the past.

I think this blog is great. Don't mind the haters. If people don't understand English, that's not your fault. People on the internet troll because no one likes them in real life.

Mok my idea give us 3 bands that could be the friday headliner( the real headliner and two fakes) and 3 that could be the sat and lets us guess. That way you dont give up the goods and as long as one of the 3 are there when the lineup comes out your not full of shit.

Get off your Fucking high horse, you stupid cunt. I don't give a fuck if you do this next year or not. Truthfully it would be better if you didn't, then we wouldn't have to here about these Fucking shit dump rumors started by flanking douche nozzles like yourself. Thanks but no thanks stop acting like you are doing a great service to coachella fans.

greg-head said...

Why are you people getting so pissed with Monklish? No one is making you come here and believe what she says. For anyone who remembers previous years, she usually bats about .700, which is a much higher average than all of you douches. Obviously, she does have some kind of insider knowledge, so instead of berating her, just look and move on. If you don't like what she says, tough shit. And for the last time, SHE IS NOT GOING TO POST HEADLINERS, so stop clogging this shit up with PM requests for headliners. For fuck's sake, get over yourselves and wait till the 26th like the rest of us. *still keeping fingers crossed for BoC*

amy whinehouse as a headliner? seriously? i refuse to believe that.

and why the fuck do people mention brittany spears?

Monklish said...

no solid info on Puscifer or One Day as a Lion or Saul Williams yet.

I'd rank them from most likely to least likely: One Day, Saul Williams, Puscifer. No clue who even represents Puscifer, also.

Jello probably dislikes his bandmates more than any other broken up band I've come across.

Winehouse totally is the secret awesome headliner that Goldenvoice has kept everyone in the dark about. Wait, that's not right....

@anon802: shame you don't post your coachella board handle to teach all the cool kids how cool you are with your cool coolness. not sure why "your" certain I'm "line" about everything, but you seem quite assured that I'll feel like a silly goose if the lineup comes out on Monday as I said it would probably do so weeks ago...

Monklish said...

and that goes for the rest of you. be as negative as you want, but if you have a coachella board handle, use it. stop hiding behind the anon. if you don't have one, just post your first name.

Monklish said...

@anon808: I'd bet that Wilco and/or Beck are there. Beck would probably show up just to watch the Kinks if that happens. no 100% info on either, though.

@anon1021: jack white solo would be neat, but seems mildly unprecedented.

Anonymous said...

What would you say the odds are of the Kinks or the Smiths or David Bowie actually playing?

If the lineup comes on the 26th, will there be a partial leak courtesy of the Los Angeles Times on Sunday night?

Will Animal Collective or Panda Bear perform?

as per above...on the boards some people "emailed" live105 and another radio station (i can't remember which)...anyway they both said they'll be releasing tuesday morning....so does that mean they'll have their release after coachella.com releases on monday, or whats up?

just asking what the status is....

HAHAHAHA people are gonna find yo on Monday, get off your high horse already.

If you know something just fucking say it and quit acting all high and mighty with your knowledge, if not just shut the fuck up and admit your just as oblivious as the rest of us and just guessing bullshit, then say oh I told you so if your right, and if you fucking FAIL just pull a "you guys were asshole's, im not doing this anymore" lol

why do these douchebags post anonymously and cry and bitch and moan about the fact that she's not releasing the headliners. Dont read the blog then you fucking sack of shit, and i'm referring to you specifically you asspumping fucktard at 2:24

Hey Monklish.
I just wanted to know if Coldplay are one of the headliners cause they are the best!!!!

Thanks! Bye.

Mark said...

This is the biggest fucking shitstorm I've ever seen.

Where do people even come up with this "high horse" stuff? This blog is admittedly a list of somewhat informed predictions, nothing more. Why is there any need to rip it apart for no real reason? Jesus fucking Christ you guys need to calm down.

Monklish, thanks for posting anything at all.

I don't think I would have been able to survive this last week if it was not for you monklish. I love you so much.

Monklish I love you so much, my dick meat tingles everytime I read your blog. You have made me so excited for this years sexchella. I want to lick your open face fur burger until your lovely pussy juices drip off my chin.

So my little fuck squirt, could you do me a solid and check if 30 seconds to mars might play?

Anonymous said...

Hey 'lish, some radio stations are claiming the lineup is coming Tuesday. How many more delays can we expect?

Anonymous said...

What about Sigur Ros?

Anonymous said...

You're going to have to tell us the headliners today if you want anyone to come to this page next year.

you people have like 2 days left at the most....just wait for it.

First of all to all the people who are dissing monkish, fuck off. Maybe if they reveal the headliners it will be obvious to others who this person is and they will loose their "ins" in the future.

Second, is there any chance that Sir Paul would headline the last evening, I don't think that is a big enough bang to go out with is it?

Michael said...

I won't mind Macca cos I know I wouldn't ever see him again. But I hope the subs are awesome! Who knows if GV has something up there sleeve. But I would hope Monklish would reveal the heads b4 all the leaks start popping up.

You're retarded. Paul McCartney is like the biggest name to grab to headline a festival. He is the big bang and then some.

No Doubt will not be playing Coachella

I'm sorry I have no desire to here Sir Paul play shitty wings songs and solo material and attempt to play classic Beatles songs without Ringo and the boys.

I just want to thank you, Monklish, for sharing the knowledge you've gained through your personal connections - this is by far the most useful and encouraging "gossip" (I use this term loosely) line up blog and the only one I go back regularly. It's unfortunate that so many inconsiderate and just plain rude people are on here giving you a hard time. You're just being nice enough to give us all something to talk about during the looooong wait for the line up and I hope you do decide to share your info with us all next year! Thanks again and cheers to a line up tomorrow!!!

Hahaha, maybe he doesnt want too reveal who it is because he will lose his privlidges?

You stupid dumb twat, he wont reveal shit, because he doesnt know shit. If Coachella wanted this thing shut down they would do it, if they wanted too track down who was behind this, they could, this dumb bitch just doesnt know shit so why would they care?

And what is the point of this whole fucking blog if your not even going to reveal shit? Your taking guesses. So quit acting all high and mighty, get off your high horse and fuck off.

Jacob said...

Any word on Aphex Twin for 2009? I was there the day he played in '08, but I wasn't nearly into him as I am now. I would love to see him there this year. Thanks for everything you're doing here Monklish, ignore the haters.

Anonymous said...

Silversun Pickups?

Tickle Me Elmo said...

I'd say there's about a 1% chance of Aphex Twin playing again.

Lineup not til Thursday. :(

Anonymous said...

Thursday at the earliest...McCartney fell through over the weekend. Leaving the headliners as: Neil Young, Morrissey and the Killers. The weakest Coachella to date.

Monklish said...

@anon907: liar.

Anonymous said...

Any confirmation on Muse, King of Leon? Also a little bird told me that a very good source told him that Oscar de la Rocha had been interested in Playing with R.A.T.M. @ Coachella. Have you heard any details on that?

Anonymous said...

So Monklish, KROQ says the lineup will be revealed tomorrow. Do you still stand by the lineup being released today?

Anonymous said...

Hahaha wow there are some cruel people out there! I have a cruel sense of humor hints the hahaha. Kings of Leon in 09 yoohoo
