Yes!!!! First post.. I think one day early a lot will have leaked already, I'd go for a week before. I love your site and don't hate but everyone will hate on one day early, just sayin..

Hey Monk...that kinda sucks. How about an updated end of year list to whet our appetite until the 9th?

I am sure that I will post something between now and then.

this doesn't change the fact that you're full of shit. last year you said "Lineup will come out on (date)." Then, once said date passes, you said "Lineup will actually come out on (this date)." Then you did it again. I swear some people need so much attention. Like you.

Can someone help me out here? i just want to make a master list of who everyone thinks could REALISTICALLY be a headliner this year...not what you all WANT (Bowie, Radiohead, etc.).

I want to make a list of what could actually happen barring any unforeseen who-coulda-predicted-that sort of thing (like Prince in '08).

here is my list of what COULD happen (please add to it f u think i am missing it and guys?? can we just stop making fun of Monklish?? she is so cool for having this site on here for us to discuss, lets just keep discussing and STOP ARGUING, lets have FUN, cause that is what Coachella is all about!)

-ARCADE FIRE (pretty much the only one that is confirmed but i still say they are subs, sorry they only have 3 albums)

-COLDPLAY (i am putting my money that they will be there, new album dropping early summer and they are starting to tour, gonna be in Vegas New Years Eve with Jay-Z)

-BEASTIE BOYS (i dont know if they'd do it subbing, they have already headlined, has anyone ever heard of a band sub-headlining a fest that they already headlined? would seem to be embarrassing to me)

-NEIL YOUNG (but would he be a sub u think?)

-KANYE WEST (hate to say it, but makes sense)

-KINGS OF LEON (new album & done Chella before as non-headliners & Paul loves a success story like Killers coming back as headliners)

-R.E.M. (makes sense, never done it)

-ROGER WATERS DOING THE WALL (its on tour right
now, though might be in Europe during Chella)

-FOO FIGHTERS (not a rumor right now at all, but they have not done it and they are huge)

-DAFT PUNK (man, i hope this isnt just a rumor)

-DRE AND EMINEM (both have new material and Em has been touring but has yet to do an LA date)

-THE WHO (2 members left in the band, just not excited about them anymore, they did however almost do it last year)

-THE ROLLING STONES (i just dont know....)

-U2 (they are touring and have no dates the wknd of Chella and have zero LA dates, just Anaheim ones, why is no one throwing their name in to the hat?)

-OUTKAST (always a rumor, and Big Boi is touring)

-WHITE STRIPES (not a substantial rumor, but damn it would be the "get" of the season to host their return. when is their next album due? anyone know?)

-TOOL (havent been there since 05, right? do they have an album coming out?)

-TOM PETTY (might be a little too Bonnaroo for Chella, no?)

-BLUR (might be more of a sub though)

-AND THE MOTHER OF ALL "GET'S" THAT HE JUST MIGHT PULL OFF EVEN THOUGH ITS NOT A REAL RUMOR AND MORE OF A "WISH"....TALKING HEADS

***also i would not doubt that we might see Lil Wayne as a sub-headliner btw....he is back u know! also throw Lauryn Hill and Wu Tang in the sub category as possibilities...

I think
Arcade Fire, The Beasties and Neil Young are all very likely with Daft Punk being possible and one other wildcard headliner.

daveofferson said...

Come on, Strokes!

Anonymous said...

I am leaning towards Beasties and Daft Punk rumors not panning out once again, and the headliners being Arcade Fire, Kanye West, and either The Who or The White Stripes. Pulp, Blur, and The Knife all will not happen because the best of the best rare acts only happen on even-numbered years. The Chemical Brothers, Jersey Shore House Mafia, Boys Noize, and either Underworld or a trance dj superstar in the tent.

Anonymous said...

White Stripes, Kanye and Arcade Fire would be pretty great.

Monklish said...

No Kanye most likely.

Anonymous said...

But you think the White Stripes are plausible?

Anonymous said...

Not surprised about Kanye. Lolla seems more likely for him

Anonymous said...

dont forget Kanye did do Coachella one year right when he was blowing up....he showed up and the last minute as an add-on...it wasnt as cool as add-on's in the past (Prince) but he did show up...and paul likes to see people come back as headliners....lets just hope he doesnt get too wild one day and bring back the Black Eyed Peas as a headliner one day!@! ahhhh that would suck...

SPACEHOG would be cool

SO GLAD to see the hatred going down after that dude's post with the huge headliner list....guys, seriously, lets just have fun on here, that is what coachella is all about

Joe said...

Doobie, I want to comment on some of your predictions.

First off, I'd say you can basically book Arcade Fire as headlining one day. Just like Muse last year, it seems to be the surest best around.

Second, I do not think people at Caochella would be happy (maybe I'm wrong) if Foo Fighters, Tom Petty, Kings of Leon, Eminem or Blur headlined. Not that they aren't big bands, but they aren't really Coachella-type of bands.

Third, while we all know Radiohead/Daft Punk are rumored every single year and never happen, I do not see how they are any more of a stretch than some of the other acts you have listed. Radiohead should have an album coming out pretty soon, and Daft Punk just released a soundtrack. I'm not saying either will be there but they aren't huge stretches like they have been in years past.

I am not going to venture a guess on who I think the other two headliners will be. Really could be anyone. NOBODY had Jay Z or Gorillaz last year, and Monk said no Macca or Cure in 09. Basically nobody knows (outside of Arcade Fire).

Joe said...

Also:

it would be funny if Foo Fighters, Radiohead, the White Stripes and Blur were there. Seeing as how the lead singers of all four bands were there last year.

Eminem totally has played LA in the past year. I know because I saw him. It was at KROQ's Epicenter Fest.

Anonymous said...

@ 10:20 - i agree, it's not likely, but did anyone ever think that Jack Johnson would be a headliner? I guess the Strokes probably dont have as big a following as he did at the time, but I've been surprised at some of the headliners recently. I would think that some solid pop-y smaller acts would be an equally big draw to compensate for the Strokes lack of a big draw - take someone like Lil Wayne, who I put on that date in particular just because popularity-wise, he's bigger. I think Soundgarden or Pearl Jam would also be a suitable Saturday night headliner that would draw a massive crowd.

Thanks for posting that picture Monk. Reminds me of the over crowded gong show that was last years Coachella. Please tell me that they will be selling less tickets this year (day tickets?) and havinng an old rocker(s) headlining (Buffalo Springfield reuinion would be awesome!)- may keep some of those rich OC teenagers away (which totally ruined Coachella for me last year).

u know who could be the Leonord Cohen or Sly Stone of this year? cause lord knows we need an older hip-as-fuck act...its essential for Chella i think....is Chuck Berry...i know he collapsed last night, but how cool would it be to see him at the Outdoor Stage or mainstage before headliner ...his music STARTED EVERYTHING THAT HIPSTERS LOVE....he is the real deal and i would kill to see him before he goes...

Anonymous said...

I'm still hoping the token older act is going to be Robert Plant. He's doing an east coast tour ending in March, has no west coast dates yet, but if he's going to be out anyway I could see him opening a West Coast leg at Coachella. Would be sweet.

Chuck Berry would be cool but after his collapse I don't see him doing it. As long as there were no awesome conflicts I'd see Berry too.

Imagine their debuting performance in beautiful coachella after being seperated for sooo long. FIREWORKS MAN!!! Even though they are only touring in europe, it would be a pee in your pants, mind blowing start if they did coachella as a pre-show to their future performances in JUNE.

I personally would love it if they would get cold play & manu chao to return as well.

WTF!!!! Kings of Leon suck donkey schlong

Monklish will you make up your fucking mind about King of Leon. You put them on there, take them off, and put them on again.

Still waiting for the inevitable removal of Daft Punk from your list.

kings of leon were never on her list this year.

Where did the Rolling Stones go? Do idiotic adds and removals like that go against his % of being wrong in the end?

Anonymous said...

Not to worry, Kings of Leon will just be there offering free blowies in the Gobi on Sunday.

Here it is, our shitty one of three that Goldenvoice guarantees us every year.

Coldplay, Jack Johnson, Chili Peppers, Muse, The Killers.

Sigh, theres always one.

KOL / Arcade Fire / Dylan = :(

Anonymous said...

Bob Dylan is in Austrlia on the Sunday of Coachella. By the time his set is over on Friday (or even early Saturday) it would almost be Saturday night in Australia.

Really doubt Dylan is playing given that.

Worst performance = Crystal Castles

No OMD this year :(

As someone who watched Bob Dylan play to a half empty minor league ballpark on a bill that included Willie Nelson and John Mellencamp recently I would like to make the bold prediction that he probably won't be headling Coachella. But hey, I'm no insider or anything.

Ray said...

wow, this is the least credible site I've ever seen. First off, lineup is ALWAYS announced late January and its absurd to think GV would announce it this Sunday. Also, they never announce it on weekends.

2nd, you say beastie, daft, arcade, AND kings are playing?! all are valid headliners and they wouldn't pick 4 names of that caliber. Also, they want to cater to as many people so the 3rd headliner will more than likely be a hip hop artist.

Lastly, you've failed to include many expected (and evidenced) acts and only mentioned big names. I guess that's to draw visitors though, right?

As the great Billy Idol said in the Doors... "fuck off Ray!"

I guess Ray doesn't know that the Beastie Boys are a hip hop group

WHAT A SHITTY LINE UP

Anonymous said...

that's not the lineup

Anonymous said...

damn RAY1:22 you are an idiot. how many times have you been to coachella?? Cause last year was the first year in a long time that they even had a hip hop headliner unless you want to count RATM back in 07. and Jan 10th is next monday not this weekend not sunday but next monday. Monday being the day of the week the lineup usually comes out. Also if thats not enough for you why don't you go look last years picks by Monk and compare them to the line up last year. and the year before that and so on. I would bet my life last year was your first year and that you probably get all your info from the coachella message board. why don't you do everyone a favor and shut the hell up you noob!! man i love ripping people when they ask for it.

Ray said...

First off while last year was my first coachella ive been to warp tour for three years now so i "get" festivals. Second Im really bad with dates becuase my parents never taught me, and last i cant look at previous blogs because i dont read good so ha! whos the idiot now?

^^^ aka he's just here to piss people off...

Do you think Creed has any chance of being a headliner this year? I am pretty sure they played in the past, think it was 2003??

Anonymous said...

man how did i ever guess... lol and warp tour doesn't count for shit in the real festival world. And ray why don't you make last year your first and final year at coachella. noobs... when will they ever learn. talking about GV this GV that OMG shut up please. thats the reason most of us stopped looking at the coachella message board in the first place.

Anonymous said...

@3:12. The CMB has the most comprehensive list on the web and finds all of the information first; Monklish just steals it and calls it her own. Watch, she'll have removed OMD by tomorrow. Just remember who had it first.
Stupid.

Anonymous said...

If Kings of Leon headlines, so be it. There are four other stages you can hit up if you don't like them. Just please quit complaining about one headliner. There are 100+ acts that you should be excited about. I'd be down to see over half the acts on this list, if they end up on the final poster.

Anonymous said...

idk maybe RAY would know about creed headlining. were they at warped tour cause if so they will probably be headling coachella all three days in fact they changed the name to creedella right RAY. fuckin noob RAY!!!

anon5:22 then why are you here??

@522

The OMD message board?

Monklish said...

@anon522 I have proven why what you are saying is not true dozens of times. You will not accept that you are wrong, but trust me, you are wrong.

Henri" said...

Monklish, please tell me its not Arcade Fire, Kings of Leon and Neil Young......! Any hope for Kanye West?

Anonymous said...

It isn't true Monk seems to have sources, but does suppliment info from the board to fill out the list

Anonymous said...

who cares where the fuck it comes from.
Take it all at face value with a grain of salt and relax
It's fun to speculate, at whatever site suits you more but it's allright, we'll know soon enough.

Monklish said...

Information is information. If the Coachella message board finds an interview with a band confirming their appearance before I hear that they are playing, it is not reasonable to expect that I will not post them on my list. If someone says that a band told them that they are playing after a show, am I not suppose to ask around to find out if it is true? I do not post my sources for obvious reasons, but I will say that the lunatics that prowl that message board are very good at putting more effort into obsessing over our festival than I am willing to.

Any suurprise of The Knife being there Monk? I'm sure you've had to ask ur sources...
