skyler stone said...

what about a classic rock name? who is left that has not donex it? Clapton? Neil Young? Would they bring back Waters again Monk for The Wall...i have to think not on Waters, as he is doing SO many shows here in LA and OC in Dec that it just would not be special i dont think....would two members of The Who really be The Who?? Could Paul finally score the Talking Heads u think?

skyler stone said...

and do u think that Eminem could be a potential headliner? he could do Friday like Jay Z did...he is cool , hip, edgy....been touring in the last year and has new material....and if he did do it, do u see Dr Dre doing it with him?

What about Pulp?

So, so, so very excited to see Magnetic Man on that list!

Any possibility that Beady Eye may be there?

Monk can I assume Groove Armada is Live ? ? ? ? ?

Thanks for the update Monk.

There is nothing very exciting on that list except for Godspeed You! Black Emperor. And maybe Magnetic Man if I were 16 and had just discovered E.

It's looking like it'll be LOLchella.

The economy must really be awful if the Beastie Boys are a headliner.

Beasties are not a headliner people, relax

I hope not. The tents are going to be pretty crowded when the Beastie Boys take the stage.

Anonymous said...

YOU DON"T HAVE TO WATCH THE BEASTIE BOYS. There are so many other bands besides headliners. They'll probly be second line anyways. SHHHH baby birds.

Anonymous said...

To the people bitching already...First of all. The Beastie Boys are headlining material. They're bigger, better, and beastier than the fucking Gorillaz..no comparison in terms of legacy...and Anon @1:36 is correct...You don't have to watch them. In fact, I probably won't. But if you people want to write off the whole festival because the HEADLINERS don't include Radiohead and Bowie, awesome, because the lower tier acts are gonna be real exciting as always. Who goes to Coachella for the headliners anyway? seriously.

Groove Armada is doing DJ Sets in '11, not 'Live'

Who goes to the festival for headliners?

How about the 60k morons jumping up and down for Jay-Z or the gigantic douchefest waving their hands in the air for the Killers.

Give me a fucking break and stop acting like stuck up music pussies.

Coachella is a 3 day Jingle Ball that has jumped the shark.

ballroomdancer said...

i've been tipped by some sources that the Beastie Boys will headline if and only if the "BIG" acquisition Goldenvoice is trying to woo falls thru.....so all you dumb dumbs settle down.

like its been said go watch someone else if Beasties aren't your cup of tea, btw Coachella doesn/t need super huge headliners to fill to capacity and if the Beastie Boys follow that notion no worries, people will shell out lots of money to be there whether they headline or not.

but I can assure that GV realizes the Beastie Boys decreased popularity, they are shooting for them to be subs, maybe getting a 70-80 min set as respect but GV has something up their sleeve to restore the slight "edge" they lost for getting Jay Z as a headliner

so all you that think they have it all figured out....you don't

how bout you let it unfold and appreciate that whomever the headliners end up being Goldenvoice is going to wreck shit up with a great undercard and "surprise" acts you'll later be telling yourself "oh, gee...why didn't think of that?"

Anonymous said...

@ ballroomdancer...

Well said, and I hope so.

And for the other people who say "who goes to festivals for the headliners?", try 80% of the crowd. It's a big, big deal to finish off each day with a major act. You're kidding yourselves if you doubt that.

Anonymous said...

So does the new LA date for Godspeed lower their chances of playing?

Anonymous said...

80% of the crowd can suck it

Anonymous said...

If you don't Go for the headliners you still want the day to be a natural progression in quality of acts, musical ability, stage presence, wow factor. My 2 favorite shows last year were LCD and thom yorke and they were better than any band I had seem earlier in the day.

BB are going to be there, I'm not stoked to see them so l head to sahara and dance my brains out and hopefully come back to the mainstage after for Daft Punk. If not I'll trip my balls of get lost for a while and end up on the glow in the dark swings and have the best night of my life. So either way it's a win win.

Do NOT expect Suede to be there. Swans, GBV and Teenage Fanclub will most likely be there.

On Monklish's last post, commenter Anon 9:49 said to expect these artists

Justice
Pendulum
Kanye West
Bryan Ferry/Roxy
Four Tet
Magnetic Man
Tortoise
Twin Shadow
Chromeo
Warpaint
Wavves
The National
Avi Buffalo

3 of those artists (Magnetic Man, Warpaint, and Four Tet) appeared on this updated post, and i know another on the list is confirmed but not yet listed by Monklish, which leads to the question...

How many other artists listed above are going to appear?

Rob said...

Pulp? Gang of Four? Roxy Music?

Also, any word on Faithless or Leftfield?

People on this blog are fucked up. Take it easy and enjoy, stop being crazy.

And..... The Killers, are like most knowledgeable music lovers would agree, not of great quality. People who refute this, simply get angry because they feel they are being attacked for the kind of music they adore----> eople, RELAX!
no one is attacking you for the music you love, just stating an obvious fact. Would you put the Killers, and let's say for sake of comparison, the Who side by side in genius?

Think about it before you start getting angry.

im pretty sure a band cant suck when they are headliners, if you are saying that 80% of the crowd sucks than your a minority therefore something is wrong with you when everyone else likes something and you think its the worst band ever. any way your going to end up going if you are reading this blog so why complain just get some updates and if you like it good, if you dont good as well

Every year there is some headliner people bitch about. If people like bitching about the Beastie Boys, let them, because that proves they are ignorant and closed minded. The Beasties are one of THE most important bands of our time. Pioneers of punk, hip-hop and production. They headlined 'Roo a few years back and it was dope as fuck.

All I'm going to say is when they play "Sabotage", you will shit.


Side note: No Thom Yorke, Johnny Greenwood, Colin Greenwood, Phil Selway or Ed O'Brien......get over it.

I don't know why so many peoe think coachella is not going to get radiohead. Greenwood just said that the new Album is almost done and that they would be doing a large tour in support. Coachella could be the beginning of said tour and then off to Europe and then back for an American leg and play la 3 months later. It makes perfect sense to me. Plus they just had thom yorke, so you don't think they already floated him an offer sheet last year for thr coming year? Supposidly GV actively pursued Blur 2 years ago and who did they get last year, Albarn's Gorillaz. This has been in the works for many many months.

There will be no Pink Floyd, so don't get your hopes up.

I'm Back said...

I've been seeing Radiohead being thrown around a lot on here. So I will tell you right now. It is very unlikely we will see Radiohead at Coachella. They have been contacted, but they are still working on their album. They have decided to not make any plans about touring until their album is completely done. I'm not going to 100% debunk them as a rumor, but again, it is unlikely.

@ I'm back - who are the headliners?

Anonymous said...

Hiya Monk, what are the chances for some recently reunited bands - blur, buffalo springfield, dresden dolls. What about Sufjan or Mogwai?

Anonymous said...

Bonnaroo is going to get Daft Punk and Radiohead so unless Coachella wants to completely be upstaged this year, they better pull an amazing 3rd night headliner. Arcade Fire and Daft Punk are a great start though.

I really like Arcade Fire and I've watched their live performances on Daily Show and SNL and wasn't overly impressed, are there live shows headliner worthy? Thanks

Anonymous said...

Weezer will play a double set of the Blue Album and Pinkerton before the three remaining members of Pink Floyd even consider reuniting their legacy of a band for a bunch of spoiled Southern California hipsters.

Still no Radiohead. Holy shit people.

I'm Back said...

@ Anon 10:28

I can't answer that yet. Partly because I am not allowed, and partly because the final isn't set in stone yet.

Many speculations and rumors on this blog are going in the right direction though. So that should be a good start.

http://www.hitsdailydouble.com/news/rumormill.cgi

*Rolling Stones’ touring plans, but something was then in the process of going down, whether he knew about it (likely) or not. We’ve just learned that the Stones team is very close to finalizing a deal that would bring them to Coachella next April. According to our sources, they’ll pick up a cool $5 million for playing the date; Paul McCartney pocketed $3.5 million for playing Coachella in 2009. This is the biggest booking coup yet for Coachella kingpin Paul Tollett, whose fest has served as a launch pad for numerous big-name tours in the past. Can you say “sold out”?"

Jake said...

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

I hope they have a really good DJ in Sahara playing at the same time, so I can have something to see.

Voice of Reason said...

I get the sneaking suspicion Monklish is keeping quieter than last year because most of the lineup is already finalized.


Monk....are the headliners most likely Arcade Fire, Daft Punk,Rolling Stones, with Beastie Boys as a safety in case Daft falls through??
