Should we expect adds?.. Why no Fanfarlo?..

Anonymous said...

You were off by some major players who we will not be seeing. You did a good job for sure, but you had my hopes up for Daft Punk D:

Anonymous said...

Yeah that was a pretty bold statement saying Daft Punk would be there. Oh well, you were right about a lot of bands I didn't expect!

Anonymous said...

oh ya. expect adds. less bands on friday and saturday than sunday. Add 4 - 6 bands there...and kanye and the strokes on the same line leads me to believe that they'll add either someone above kanye or a big dj that night.

81% accuracy in predicting the 2011 line-up. Not too shabby, Monk.

Anonymous said...

Thanks Monk. I'd have to say that you were decent but not superb, good enough for me to continue checking the site in the future and it's been fun.
Questions
1. Will there be any adds? Have u heard any speculation and if so could u throw a few out just as conjecture?
2. Why are there multiple names on the 2nd line this year and not just 2 like in years past? And why 2 names on the top line Sunday?
3. Does GV think this is a good lineup? It's pretty boring, very similar to Lolla last year. I imagine Lolla will grab Kanye as well so Nothing setting Coachella apart this year.

Monk blew it this year. Your accuracy was based on what you read from the Coachella board.

Stop patting yourself on the back.

Anonymous said...

Yeah your accuracy was good after being wrong about the lineup annoucement, and then changing your headliners the day before. You told us no Kanye, you told us yes Daft Punk you told us yes The Rolling Stones. You were wrong about those things. Anyone can change their "predictions" a day before.

Anonymous said...

@207 where were yours and the rest of the lineup predictions the day before? Nobody else had DFA1979. Nobody.

THE TRUTH HURTS said...

YOU HAD A 23% ACCURACY WITH YOUR INITIAL LINEUP PREDICTION, OF WHICH 18% OF CAME FROM THE COACHELLA BOARD.

YOU DON'T REALLY BELIEVE YOUR OWN B.S. DO YOU?

I usually go for the electronic stuff and it's a pretty good lineup of electronic, although Daft would have put it over the top.

I feel they still need a special DJ set... Daft DJ set perhaps?!

GREAT Line-Up

Anonymous said...

@ anon 2:11. Everyone's known about Arcade Fire for months. I knew about both Kanye and Kings of Leon before Monk posted them, and I do not claim to have any "insider" status, I just pay attention. My headliners a week ago were KoL, AF, and the White Stripes. Monks were Arcade Fire, Daft Punk, the Rolling Stones.

And this lineup is good. Every year, since it's not Daft Punk, Radiohead, and Bowie, you are always going to have people bitching. Arcade Fire Sat Night will be legendary.

i think they will add to saturday and sunday
i think we will see KOL get bumped to subs

DEF will see someone Sunday

why else would they have TWO headliners there, Kanye is going to be the Portishead of this year....bumped by Daft i bet...they will come out and do harder better stronger and then their own set

1139 you need to stop taking so much xtc. you think daft will be over kanye and strokes? that is pretty funny and you think kol will also get bumped and sunday and saturday will get adds. wow that is just amazing. good luck with that.

with that being said i would like to see queens of the stone age and/or the beastie boys. that would be awesome because i got my hopes up for artists that ACTUALLY had a chance of being there and still do. and one of the guys in beastie had cancer and they still have a higher chance of being there then daft does.

Anonymous said...

monk how long till we can expect some adds?

Anonymous said...

Kanye is one of the biggest stars in the world and just released the best-reviewed album of 2010. He is not getting bumped.

What the lineup needs are real subheadliners.

Anonymous said...

agreed now give us QOTSA and BEASTIE BOYS please!!

Anonymous said...

^that would fix friday and saturday, also i noticed on the lineup page on the coachella website has a few open spots at the bottom for friday and saturday so maybe they will add a couple to both days. i mean come on they have to add someone at some point to boost ticket sales.

Anonymous said...

Electronic side of the bill isn't too shabby but fuck if I want ooontz ooontz ooontz music...I'll go to Ultra or Electric Zoo.

Overall...the lineup sucks. The headliners minus AF are pure shit. Just might have to hit up 'roo this year after 10 spent in the desert.

Anonymous said...

i have excepted the headliners, it would be great for an add at sub headliner level(beastie boys, QOTSA,NEIL YOUNG) but i realize that theirs a slim chance of that happening but how great are the chances of adding smaller bands?? (the growlers, surfer blood, the strange boys, ty segall,deerhunter/atlas sound)

You guys bitch about the lineup but the last 2 highly rated albums commercially and critically that are considered important were made by Kanye West and Arcade Fire. 10 years from now you'll be telling people you saw Arcade Fire on their "suburbs" tour and everyone will be jealous because by that point they won't be as good live and their star will have faded.

Kings of Leon are huge. Deal with it.

Anonymous said...

Kings of leon are a solid band but are NOT headliner material. Friday is by far the weakest of the three so expect a big addition.....daft punk?

out side of the chembros, the sahara tent headliners are weak as fuck. i expect additions

Anonymous said...

God, you people are fucking annoying.
If you don't like the lineup, DON'T GO!!
GV doesn't cater the festival to solely you and your hopes/predictions.
Plus, the polo fields could lose a douchebag or 2.
Grow up.
It's a music festival. Enjoy it for the experience. Be happy it has even lasted this long & continues to go strong.
If there are adds, great. If not, so what? It's still a stacked festival. If you're not happy get off this blog and start pissing people off over at the bonnaroo or lollapalooza board

DAFT PUNK IS NOT COMING!!!! im sure they were asked but did not accept the offer this time around. they will EVENTUALLY go on tour and sell out every stadium across the world. dont be mad at GV be mad at Daft Punk for wearing masks and never talking to their fans!

Are you kidding?
People said the same thing about The Killers and Jack Johnson.
I bet the main stage will be packed for Kanye. He is going to bring a huge production

Craig said...

@anon938
I dunno if you were there the year Jack Johnson played but he was by far the least crowded main stage I've ever seen. Tons of people left and there was a VERY small crowd watching him (compared to other headliners)

That said, I think most people will stick around for Kanye.

I saw Kanye at Lolla a few years ago, and for some reason he didn't have his glow in the dark setup, but it was still a good show. Nothing epic by any means. But he is bigger now, has an epic album out, and he is getting more and more into the visual side of things, I expect a closing headliner performance, and a Daft Punk appearance.

suprefan said...

Are you people retarded? The headliners are KOL, AF, and Kanye. Oh, and don't expect any adds. This is the lineup, so deal with it. It's really that simple.

Also, Monklish pulled the Stones from her list weeks ago, and the only time she named headliners was when she named the three that appear on the poster. She also named DFA 1979, Suede, and BAD reunions. If you don't think she knows what she's doing, then you're an even bigger idiot.

Supre is right. There were a few big misses, but you did a great job! Thanks for doing this again.

Anonymous said...

these are very interesting headliner choices for GV to make, and as someone said on the board, there's always been a lot of curating for this festival instead of just throwing big money at big names.


you've got Kings of Leon, who by listening to their album, clearly believe the apocalypse is coming, but they've also sold out for money by making soccer mom friendly songs that in no way whatsoever have anything to do with helping people get through the times they believe are coming.

then you've got Arcade Fire who are like Kings of Leon in the sense that they've picked up, and are writing about, many issues going on within the underbelly of society. things the media refuse to acknowledge. the difference between Arcade Fire and Kings of Leon is that Arcade Fire haven't sold out, and they stick to what they think; they've yet to make a useless sing along like 'Sex on Fire'. The closest thing Arcade Fire has to that is 'Rebellion', and that one isn't filled with meaningless lyrics, and it was also on their FIRST album, not their 4th or 5th like Kings of Leon. in essence, KOL are trying to be the band Arcade Fire is, it's just that Arcade Fire don't even have to try, they just are. KOL have to go out of their way to still look 'cool' to the underground because they sold out.

Then there's Kanye (I'm convinced the Strokes will be a sub, sorry). Kanye regularly pledges his allegiance to whatever the fuck is going on with the pyramid-illuminati thing going on within the music industry. THIS is one of the things Arcade Fire are against, and obviously Kings of Leon aren't because then they couldn't be posing as U2 anymore.

hey monk any idea when adds will come since they are gonna have a hard time selling tickets with all the car camping issues everyone is having to deal with. How else would GV sell a large number of festival tickets at this time.

LockNes said...

As a 4 year coachella veteran. This year is pathetic.
1. The hate on the boards leading up to the event was pathetic. I can't believe that the same cool ass people that share light shows, cigarettes and bud are the same douches that post on this and many sites.
2. The lineup. People are all about positivity, this is the worst lineup in 4 years. No real exciting groundbreaking acts, no huge reunions, no important headliners.
3. The scalping. GV is responsible for this. You should not be able to buy a camping pass without at the same time buying a festival pass. And both should be limited to 3 per cc. Fuck you gv.
4. KOL. Seriously. This is more shitty than JJ. Seriously it is. I was way too fucked up the night JJ played but at least I could chill and listen to him. With KOL, I could honestly just go to my tent and punch myself in the balls.
Sad.
I miss you Coachella, come back please.

F&ck this said...

Am really pissed off. Wasn't going to go to Coachella because the lineup sucked but then changed my mind .. booked flights and hotel and went to purchase my ticket and saw that it is sold out. Super pissed off. Craigslist has posts selling a ticket for like $750! WTF. Maybe I should sell my hotel reservation for $500.

Anonymous said...

Wow, this actually really sucks I booked my flight/hotel pkg Nov1,(non refundable $1600)because I figured the nicer hotels always sell out. Looks like its reversed this year. And .....what's going on with camping this year sold out in 3 days!!!Last year it was a few weeks before the fest.
I was planning on buying my ticket on Friday. I didn't think it would sell out this quick.Some blogs are saying that its all the fault of the mexican group cafianes for their reunion shows cuz rhey are only doing two and the mecicans look up to them so much I just really hope G/V will release some more, so the real music fans that have been anticipating coachella all year will have a chance to or be in y situation SOL !!!! Is there anyone else with the same problem? Would it be dumb to trust eBay tickets. I heard alot of people last year were given fake tickets. And I'm not sure if I can shell out another 700 for 1 ticket. Any advice pls... sorry just so pssd.

there will probably be more tickets release, but in all fairness, you people had the layway option since december. don't blame gv for your lack of motivation to buy tickets early for a festival that you knew would probably sell out.

monk what do u think the feb 16th announcement is about?

Anonymous said...

MONK R THESE DAFT PUNK COLORS? ;)

Anonymous said...

Sorry but to the folks that say too bad so said you could have done layaway is a bunch of bullshit. I didn't do layaway this year because I royally got screwed over on it last year .. the ticket never got sent to me and it was a HUGE hassle to settle it. So I thought this year I'd be smarter and just buy them once I'd done my travel plans (no sense in buying a ticket if I can't get my flight/hotel right). Some fans actually travel quite far (my case England).
I can't even express how very pissed off I am seeing tons and tons of tickets now on Ebay and stubhub. Good job Golden voice - sure you made a killing but you are ruining what use to be ART/CULTURE and making it into a business. GV go to hell.

Scouse Dwarf said...

@ Anon 11.49

Sorry, but being from England (as I am, and yes, I'm heading to Indio this year, and yes, I've been before) you should know all about festival sellouts when Glastonbury can sell out in a day with no announced acts, and big fests like Leeds and Reading sell out in 2 hours.

I understand people being pissed off at not getting a pass, but why are you pissed off at Goldenvoice? Everyone just wants to blame anyone but themselves for not buying a ticket on time. You all knew roughly when tickets would be on sale - don't throw your toys out of the pram when when everyone else turns up in line before you do. As for scalping, yes it sucks, but you all make it sound like more tickets went to scalpers than not - surely you know this isn't the case? Only a relatively small percentage will be sold on.

And anyhow, I'm guessing when deadlines pass for Layaway payments to be made, GV will make tickets available that haven't been settled on time.

Anonymous said...

@ anon 11:49 I agree with you 100%, I to am traveling far and booked my travel well before the lineup. This is bullshit.

Anonymous said...

You can book your travel before the lineup comes out and then don't bother buying a ticket when they go on sale? Wow. That's pretty stupid. What, were you expecting Goldenvoice to hold a pass for you? How dare they sell tickets to other people! DIDN'T THEY REALISE WHO YOU ARE?

Anonymous said...

As far as waiting to buy a pass, it's been 1 week. Quit bitching about "lack of motivation" when many people were waiting for payday, etc to buy the pass. Like in my case, it was going to be bought today. Agreed with earlier comments, lay away is a huge hassle. Coachella sold out last year with about 2 weeks until the fetival. Waiting a few days beyond a week after they go on sale this year was very VERY reasonable. I have not missed a Coachella, been to every one. This year I may skip it - Coachella has sold out in more ways than one. Very disappointed. Bring on 'Roo.

Anonymous said...

I already have hotel reservations, and I cannot get tix. It's quite possible more passes went to scalpers than many of you care to realize. Anybody can buy 6 at a time. Paying over $1000 for Coachella is ridiculous. I remember when Coachella was cool.

Anonymous said...

If you didn't get tickets wait until the end of February and early March to buy scalped ones. There will still be a markup, but instead of paying $600 for a weekend pass, they will be down to $350 or so. Still getting ripped off, but not as bad. Right now, there's the sellout rush to buy scalped tickets. Once it's April, there will be another huge rush to buy scalped tickets, but if you wait until the lull, you can get a good deal.

Anonymous said...

Also, Lollapalooza and Bonnaroo have such a sellout boner, right now. Coachella created the false perception that people should make a mad rush for the tickets. I bet both sell out in under a week, as well.

Apparently it wasn't so reasonable as it might have appeared. Also, what's a hassle about lay away? I'm doing it this year, and actually find it extremely covenient and easy.

Anonymous said...

@10:10 - layaway convenient and easy.. that's what I thought until my ticket NEVER came! Same thing happened for my friends friend. Will you still be saying that come April? Hassle came trying to settle the matter.. way too many phone calls involved.

For all the people complaining about the line-up. Sure, the headliners suck, but who comes for the headliners? The undercard is stacked as usual: Warpaint, Drums, Foals, Pains of Being, Titus, Best Coast, Delorean, Delta Spirit, Cold Cave, Klaxons, Ariel Pink, Jenny and Johnny, and this doesn't even take into account the bands I don't care for that much. Stop bitching about the line-up!, and if you didn't get tickets, I was also surprised how fast it sold out. But this was why I bought mine day 1.

One sad boy about this lineup said...

MONK,

Do u think the talk of a huge announcement this coming Wed the 16th is real at all??
Is it just that the art Project is going to be there and what not? Or do u think there is a huge addition to the lineup taking place? I was thinking not, cause they sold out so fast, but then the conspiracy guy in me started thinkin (like all of us do on this site!!)...and i thought, well, what if they ALWAYS had something up their sleeve this whole time and that even they themselves thought that KOL and Kanye and Arcade was not going to be enough to sell the fest out and that they always had a joker up their sleeve like in 08 when they pulled out Prince??

And because of that, maybe they had a contract with someone like say, DAFT PUNK, this whole time and they were planning on telling us about it Feb 16th in case the fest was not selling out fast enough for them...? Thoughts?

Is that why your site is all of the sudden red and black? Cause those be Daft colors there!!!!

Are those of us that did not buy tix cause we thought the lineup lacked a little about to be left majorly out in the dark when they announce a HUGE addition on Wed??

Is the "collaboration" that this art project thing is bringing actually DAFT FREAKIN PUNK?? And they are being added to Sunday? Would explain why Kanye is next to The Strokes on the headliner line....maybe they are about to become subs due to Daft's add???

TELL US SOMETHING MONK...where are you??
and where is everyone else btw??!! usually people still comment even after the lineup is released...have u been served with a cease and desist??? were u caught finally?

where u be?

were u told to say no more and that is why you added the colors so u could say u called Daft getting added without ACTUALLY SAYING IT???

if u cannot type it, just write us a winky face!!! TALK!!! we miss u!!!!!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Win Two Tickets to the Coachella Music Festival through Radical Publishing’s “Where in the World is Radical?” Contest

February 14, 2011, Los Angeles, CA – Radical Publishing is happy to announce the launch of their most recent contest, “Where in the World is Radical?”
The contest will run from February 11 to March 15, 2011.

The winner of the contest will be flown from wherever they live in the United States to Indio, California, where they will receive two tickets to the Coachella music festival (April 15 – 17, 2011) and a 3-night stay at a local hotel, all courtesy of Radical.

To enter, visit the contest page and upload a photo of yourself holding a Radical book or the provided Radical printout in a location that shows where in the United States you live. Note that this does not necessarily mean you need to take a photo in front of a national landmark—submissions can be as simple as a photo taken next to a street sign. Think creatively, though— photos will be judged on the basis of originality.

Once you’ve got your photo, upload it to the contest page and ask your friends to vote— the more people you get involved, the better your chances at winning. Radical will select the winner from the three photos that receive the most votes, ultimately choosing a single winner based on the creativity of their submission.

Get creative, tell your friends, and enter Radical’s contest for a chance to win a pair of tickets to see your favorite musicians play at Coachella. For more detailed contest information, visit the following URL: http://bit.ly/e1kHR4

It's the art project, and the addition of Queens of the Stoneage

radiohead, daft punk and queens of the stone age will be added tomorrow as the new headliners for each day.

Does anyone know if more tickets will be released? I really need to go.

No they are not releasing anymore tickets. Goldenvoice has posted this on the Coachella website multiple times in the twitter feed.

Radiohead just tweeted about Coachella! King of Limbs being played sunday night!!! holy shit

Holy SHIT! Wait. Where'd it go? It was just there 5 mins ago!?!?

Why would Radiohead play on Sunday? Of all the nights they could play, Sunday makes the least sense.

Radiohead just confirmed coachella. hope u got your tickets on time.

And where o where did Radiohead just confirm Coachella? In your dreams during your nap this afternoon?

Anonymous said...

Pathetic. Radiohead is not playing Coachella. There won't even be any top tier add ons. it's SOLD OUT. No need to.

Anonymous said...

Those familiar with the process would know that many "adds" are signed before the lineup is released. There are many reasons for their late announcement, but rarely is it due to delayed signing or an attempt to boost ticket sales.

Anonymous said...

True, Prince was announced only 2 weeks before the festival in 2008.

Anonymous said...

What if Radiohead asked Coachella to play? Would coachella say "sorry were sold out"? i dont think so. Glad they are confirmed!

Anonymous said...

If Radiohead were announced now then GV is totally in bed with the scalpers - if the show is sold out why would they announce RH is playing now. Wouldn't they just announce it a few days before the festival.

Anonymous said...

GV DOESNT CARE ABOUT SCALPERS. SCALPERS MAKE UP A TINY PERCENTAGE OF THE TICKET HOLDERS. THERE WILL ALWAYS BE SCALPERS NO MATTER WHO IS PLAYING EVERY YEAR FROM NOW ON. IF GV COULD GET RADIOHEAD LATE IN THE GAME THEY WOULD DO IT. WHAT BETTER WAY TO END THE WEEKEND.

"Radiohead ask to play Coachella" - now that's a hoot. Wasn't it fun enough talking about Daft Punk? Who also by the way are not playing this year.

2011 = just about the worst Coachella line up ever.

Joseph said...

^^^
Every single year is somehow the worst coachella lineup ever. Yet it keeps getting more and more popular. Funny how that works.

I really think it's gotten to the point where if there's no Radiohead and/or Daft Punk it's automatically labeled a disappointment.

Fact is, this is a pretty sweet lineup, better than the other US fests at this point.

Anonymous said...

^this lineup is disappointing from a sub headliner perspective. Animal collective, black keys, etc dont compare to them crooked vultures LCD atoms for peace. Besides that and KOL I think this lineup has numerous gems.

Anonymous said...

Ding! Ding! Ding!

One look at any other US festival shows the hurdles that Goldenvoice had to jump this year. You can only book acts that are available (want) to be booked.

Anonymous said...

I do agree that the subheadliners are weaker than years past. Atoms for Peace is kind of a 1-time holy fuck get. Them Crooked Vultures were awesome, Tiesto killed it, and smaller acts like MGMT could easily sub this year. Still, there are some good acts here. Chem Bros, Animal Collective, The Strokes, Caifanes, are all pretty big and will be good.

Just because it's not as good as last year doesn't mean it's not good and still kills the Roo lineup.

Anonymous said...

So where was this major announcement that was suppose to happen in Feb?

Anonymous said...

No major announcements...no major adds...it is what it is. The ONLY good thing that can be said is that it's still way better than that smelly mud fest in TN. Smelly even without the mud.

Anonymous said...

Well there was a major announcement, involving INterpol, Animal Collective, and Spiritualized.

At least, some people considered it to be.

Anonymous said...

Looks like tickets are shipping a little earlier than originally forecast. Should start shipping shortly after the 10th.

What was the annoucncment in regard to : INterpol, Animal Collective, and Spiritualized?

I had heard the layaway was a huge hassel last year and it has become the same for me this year. WTF is wrong with FGT? They can't seem to withdraw a second payment from an account they already withdrew a payment from?

Anyone know whats up with Pure Filth's plans for the campground (i.e. thursday's pre-party and the campground stage)?
Also, does anyone have any input on The Do Lab's lineup?

Anonymous said...

Any thoughts on this, Monk?

"Remix album to the Tron: Legacy Soundtrack. Set to be out officially on April 15th, which is strange because albums usually release on Tuesdays. April 15th happens to be the first day of Coachella, and it is heavily rumored that Daft Punk will preform “somewhere” on April 17th. Daft Punk fans for Coachella, I wouldn’t lose hope yet. Nothing for certain though, we’ll keep it posted as soon as any touring information releases."

Nevermind, that site is stupid. The album releases on the 5th, not the 15th.

But still, if you have any thoughts on a Daft appearance (or where the rumors of an appearance somewhere on 17th that they claim), I'd love to hear them.

Anonymous said...

Getting more and more unlikely that we have any surprise adds unless a "Prince like" event happens which is highly unlikely seeing that the festival has been sold out for so long. Any chance of any last minute additions monk? QOTSA just seemed like such an ideal band for this Coachella, I still can't believe they aren't on the poster.

Anonymous said...

yea wheres QOTSA? their tour ends april 13 in LA and theyre not at coachella? what the fuck?

Anonymous said...

It goes a little something like this. QOTSA have their booking agent call Goldenvoice and say they're available. For shits and giggles, booking agent also calls competing promoters. LiveNation offers a shit ton more.

So long, Coachella.

KA-CHING! Livenation!

Daft Punk just posted on their FB page about special appearance at Coachella. Looks like they only had it up for only a minute or two, anybody else see it? OMG!!!!!

All you kiddies still waiting for that big add that isn't coming?

I'm a big Coachella fan, been many many years but this year just didn't do it for me. Throw in the fact that it sold out in a week and that just made me more nervous. Quick sell outs tend, only tend, to produce crowds of people really quick to the trigger. Not laid back and cool enough. The all CAPS crowd with lots of emoticons tossed around.

Anonymous said...

Quick sell outs tend, only tend, to imply that 26,000 tickets went to scalepers.

Drops:

The Klaxons won't be making Coachella this year due to unforeseen circumstances. If you bought a ticket, you can send a scan of it to the band for a free download. There are more details on the Klaxons website.

Adds:

Chase and Status has been added to the bill for Sunday, April 17.

Updates:

Gayngs and Yacht moved from Saturday to Friday, Here We Go magic moved from Friday to Saturday and Yelle moved from Sunday to Saturday.

When are they going to ship tickets and camping passes? I'm starting to worry that my layaway is fucked

Anonymous said...

Tickets should start to ship on the 25th. People should start getting them around the 28th.

Anonymous said...

Set times aren't released until 2 weeks typically right? I think last year it was somewhere in that range?

Anonymous said...

Two days.
