Hey Monk,

What about LCD Soundsystem?

OMG, if this is true.

Monklish, I remember last year, you had pretty good insight into the date that the lineup was being released. Of course this year rumors are flying that it's going to be out in a few days, which would be unusual. Any thoughts or ideas you can share about when its coming?

Anonymous said...

Negrodamus,

Can you forsee when the line up will be released?

Thank You.

I hope you're right - although if that list ends up containing the headliners, it's probably Gorillaz, Muse, Soundgarden

Thom Yorke! Hopefully I will be explain to a friend or two how much better his voice is than Matt Bellamy's! That would be hilarious if he subheadlined right under Muse.

Ok Monk...

Everyone has these 2 questions:

1. When does the lineup drop?

2. Are the Beastie Boys the 3rd headliner?

Headliners and subs (not in any order)-
Muse, Gorillaz, Soundgarden, The Flaming Lips, Thom Yorke, Jay-Z, Beastie Boys.

Matthew Lingo said...

Any word on Scott Walker?

Dr. Disco said...

The third headliner is a mystery just like GV wants it to be, because it is big. Its not Beasties, or Soundgarden. Hova could be but i put that at less than 50%.

jay z will not be playing. he's playing staples center 3 weeks before coachella. this falls under the black out rule.

There have been exceptions to that rule.

skyler stone said...

not only would I die to know the third headliner, though I think it's Clapton or Outkast, but I would love to see a classic Coachella gimmick or two on this line-up. I truly love when someone performs an entire album in it's entirety (like Waters in 08) or when someone huge does the tent even when they are clearly huge enough for mainstage (Madonna). So I would love to see something like that, but please don't have it be Lady GaGa in the tent (ugh) or something stupid like that. Jay Z would be neat in the tent. I would love it if it was announced that the Beasties were doing Paul's Boutique. A huge reunion for the third one would be neat, like say Clapton and Cream! Or maybe an odd combo that is not going to be a tour nor will it ever be one but rather just specific to Coachella - like Elton John & Eminem or Jay Z and Eminem....or Neil Young and Eddie Vedder or something cool and odd.....just something new to remind us how original Coachella can be!

Anonymous said...

BlakRoc? Any chance??

J-Dizzle said...

if Thom Yorke is indeed confirmed, I'm sure he'll have his whole new side band with Flea, Nigel Godrich, Joey Waronker, & Mauro Refosco. it will be pure magic!!! Orpheum shows in Oct. were ridik!!!

@ Skyler Stone: rest assured, Clapton will not be in the Polo Field in April, nor will Elton John.

steven said...

@ 8:37 , Jay Z would be okay , but i agree , not as a headliner , but who are we to decide ? Always seems to be that one headliner somebody dislikes , and doesnt agree should have that spot . My advise to those , go to one of the other stages and find what is more your taste in music .

Anonymous said...

Bloody Beetroots will NOT be there, they are in France that weeken

I just watched the JayZ set at Glastonbury on YouTube - that guy knows how to perform and would be great. I guess we'll see if it happens.

Thanks again.

P.S.: Can u please find out if Massive Attack is at least a possibility?

No REM.
No Neil Young.
Probably not the Rolling Stones.

I said awhile ago that I would guess that the lineup is out on the 18th or the 25th. I am sticking with that. If it is coming out on Monday, people will know that's true on Sunday. It could come out on Tuesday, sure, but we will not know that until Monday.

Fuck Muse and their overblown asshattery.

how about ???

Soundgarden - Muse
FNM - Bowie
BBoys - Gorillaz

any way it goes down , im there anyways ( already bought tickets )
its just fun to do this whole spec thing

next year , im willing to pay a nice little price to the best blogger , conditioning who is most correct about the line up , etc.

steven said...

@ 424

Muse is better than Killers or J. Johnson headlining , do you agree ? Seems like the unlikely event each year lately there has been an undercard ( technically speaking ) . One of these years Coachella will be so huge they will be able to book major headliners for all three nights .

I dont know if I am late in the game in bringing this up, so forgive me if this has been squashed already, but what about KINGS OF LEON? They are great at fests and would sell tix for SURE....are they a potential surprise headliner? Could they be headliners yet or would they be subs?????

Anonymous said...

Kings of Leon arn't playing. Go away.

NickDeesGuys said...

so let me get this straight...
the potential bands/singers for the 3rd slot are:

-The Stones
-Pearl Jam (maybe, as they are doing a fest in New Orleans)
-Thom Yorke and Flea and Nigel
-Smashing Pumpkins
-Jay Z
-Daft Punk
-Bowie (a relentless reach every yr)
-Eric Clapton
-Outkast

What about these as possible surprises? Metallica, Stevie Wonder (would fill the classic portion quite well), Eminem, or Foo Fighters?

Anonymous said...

-The Stones No
-Pearl Jam No
-Thom Yorke Couldn't Headline Coachella
-Smashing Pumpkins No

Thats pretty much correct. Except there is no Bowie. Thom Yorke is closing the Outdoor Stage. Pavement will play in a sub-sub spot. So Sat will look like this

Beastie Boys-Jay-Z

Everything else looks good. There may be some minor changes though. But good job.

If Thom closes the outdoor theater, what day? And does that mean conflicting with a headliner? Assuming you're not full of it, obvs.

I know Coachella is about the under card, but if Jay-Z and the crew are one of the headliners, this will be the last year I buy in advance. What about Interpol? Arcade Fire? The Pixies? Fuck...other festivals get these bands, and so what if Pixies have played in the past? What about Interpol before everyone gets them? What about Arcade Fire for the same reason? Muse is bad enough.

Anonymous said...

What has happened to Coachella? They diversified. It's called Diversity Today, not Diversity Tomorrow.

Anonymous said...

I agree with Anonymous 7:37pm. Just when you thought you had Coachella figured at getting headliners that would meet the newish mainstream act/influential nostalgia act/classic rock act headliner festival of the past two years, they changed the game again and will confuse all other festivals who've been trying to mimic them. While your tastes may not agree with it, Coachella is doing what it does best: Embraces diversity. It's already had Interpol, Arcade Fire and so on. Let the other festivals have them. You're forgetting that Coachella had them first. I'm also willing to bet that while you may not see your average Coachella festival goer attending a Jay Z show on their own, expect to be surprised at how many people are going to jump at the chance at doing so when all their other favorite indie/electronic/alternative/whatever bands are playing on the same day as him.

Anonymous said...

My problem with Jay-Z is I just don't feel like it's an original idea.

Anonymous said...

This will be a 5th Coachella, but if this is the way it is going, then I might as well stay on the East Coast and just go to Bonnaroo, All Points West, etc. I started going to Coachella because it offered a difference, and Jay-z and the Posse are not it, either are The Killers, Muse, and McCartney. And APW Sucks!

Anonymous said...

If you are at Coachella to "jump at the chance" to see Jay-Z, then you don't need to be at Coachella. Just go see him on tour at a local arena. The same goes for Killers, Muse, whatever. I'm sure a lot of Coachella regulars don't like this either. Why not bring on Snoop Dogg, Lady Gaga, and every other useless entertainment type performer.

Anonymous said...

Hey assholes, Coachella is going to be one of the only places in the world this year where you're going to be able to see the Gorillaz and anyone who says that's not original can go fuck themselves. The lineup isn't even out yet and I highly doubt there's any truth to a set from Jigga who is playing L.A 3 weeks prior to the festival. Just because Nostradamus here is saying it MIGHT happen doesn't mean it is. So you could all shut the fuck up.

Coachella always offers a band that no one else even thought of getting or couldn't pull even if they tried. Look at the last 2 years: Roger Waters, Sir Paul, Leonard Cohen, Prince, Throbbing Gristle. It is the premier festival in the US, if you don't like the lineup go chug beers and sweat your ass off at Bonarroo or Lolla and enjoy sub-par lineups. COACHELLA is gonna be great this year!
