Most accurate Coachella speculation source on the internet since 2008.
The Curse of the Bambino will be at Coachella lol
@7:11 -Yeah but do Tiesto, Deadmau5 and Swedish House Mafia have new albums coming out? Kaskade has been releasing tons of new music recently. I am just as confident Kaskade will be there as I am that Bon Iver, Fleet Foxes and Justice will be there. You can't get me anywhere near the Sahara when it happens, but it's an obvious choice.And Guetta? He could easily be there too with his new album, let's not even try to dance around that trainwreck. Although I think Kaskade is more likely.
Not to mention that two out of three SHM members played last year, and Skrillex was there last year too.
Anon 11:47 is actually correct. Except it's the Glitch Mob and not Modeselektor (although they will be there). Everything else is absolutely correct.Deadmau5JusticeBassnectarThe Glitch MobAnd yes, Skrillex and AfrojackTake it to the bank.
way to go out on a limb and say that kaskade, bon iver and justice will be there
Your mom will be there
Come on Monklish time to wake up :)
So Parks and Rec should be funny tonight. Who's gonna watch?
I really hate that the term "Dance Party" is used so freely, it's really gay.
the office tonight!
@11:03Partly agree with what you are saying. Florence and the Machine has a new album coming out though and doubtful she plays Southern California after the new album.My Morning Jacket never played San Diego after the release of Circuital and 20% of the crowd at Coachella is from San Diego.
What's today's bullshit lineup gossip?
Monk, as one of the people that constantly adds good info here and tries to stop the NEGATIVE jerks that say mean stuff on here, could u PLEASE for the fans of this blog, PLEASE just PLEASE start a new post even if u have nothing to report, as I just want to stop having to scroll through all this! ;)PLEASEPLEASEPLEASEcan I get someone to say "ay" and 2nd this? maybe if we flood it with "ay's" we will overcome?
Guys, there wasn't a new post last year until mid NOVEMBER. Get over it, it'll happen when it happens and it'll only be 60% accurate anyway.
As if a clean slate would keep away all of the lurkers and we'd actually have a real rumor mill going and not Walter Gay. This blog's gone to hell, accept it.
monk what do you have to say about Radiohead?
how does sex feel like? im 26 and i haven't had an in timid relationship with a woman or man. . can anyone describe the feeling?
@8:34. Well if feels like the feeling you get when your at Coachella!!!
You know what WOULD make sense?An NWA reunion. That would be a great addition to the poster at about the same area we saw Public Enemy.It makes sense for all parties. MC Ren and Yella ain't doin SHIT right now. Hell, Yella is directing PORN, haaaa! U don't even need him, but they can get the Arabian Prince also...Sure Eazy E is dead, but with how Wu Tang still tours minus O.D.B., they can either have his parts play over the sound system w/ his face on a huge screen or they can have someone that they are boys with (Snoop, Eminem, etc.) fill in live onstage.Cube is producing freaking TBS show now, I mean, COME ON! U know he is down (and he is GREAT live).It's funny, everyone always throws around Dr Dre and then it starts a polarizing situation where people are like "hell yeah, love him" or "no way, dude is not a headliner and he is not great live". First of all, everyone needs to chill on that. Sure, we do not know when Detox is coming out for sure, but it will be here before Coachella for sure. It will be. So he is going to relevant as we all surround this album to see if it is any good! Dre could play some new songs, Dre and Cube could do Natural Born Killaz onstage and Cube could roll out a few solid hits and they could do all the NWA songs people know all the words too!!thoughts??
over a 1000 posts and that nwa idea is by far the dumbestice cube hawks family sitcoms and coors light...you think hes gonna don a raiders cap and start busting out fuck the police? youre an idiotdavid bowie has a better chance of being on the lineup
Radiohead & No Doubt are suposedly headlining, so I'll leave those out.I'd like to see Silversun Pickups & Empire of the Sun come back.Headliners:Foo Fighters, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Beastie Boys, weezer, white stripesOther bands/djs: kaskade, morgan page, deadmau5, swedish house mafia, The knife, massive attack, the strokes, ryan bingham, artic monkeys, the antlers, chiddy bang, manu chau, cafe tacuba, adele, metric, manchester orchestra, airborne toxic event,
Someone will say this is stupid, someone will say, "cool story bro", but apparently this is what's being passed through the wire.* means more likelyPossible Headliners:Radiohead*, Coldplay, Beastie Boys, Foo Fighters*, Outkast, No Doubt Subs:Pulp, TV On the Radio*, Blur, Justice, Drake, A Perfect Circle, Lykke Li, Fleet Foxes*, The Shins, Moby (live), Bon Iver, Wilco*, Belle & SebastianReunions:New OrderCulture Club*The Buzzcocks*Braid3rd Row acts:Tom Waits, Feist*, Kaiser Chiefs*, The Knife, Florence & the Machine*, Mogwai, M83, Beirut, The Rapture*, Battles, James Blake*, Janelle MonaeNotable Electronic Acts:Simian Mobile Disco*, Pete Tong, Above & Beyond, DJ Shadow, Four Tet, Aviici*, Mr. Oizo, Modeselektor, The Field*, JokerNotable 4th row and below:Wild Beasts, Islands, tuneyards*, Wu Lyf*, Fucked Up, Memory Tapes, Rosebuds, Tinariwen, Vetiver, Washed Out*, Other Lives*, Generationals, Wise Blood*Some wishes that won't happen:Talking Heads, Sufjan Stevens, Smashing Pumpkins, Operation Ivy, Neutral Milk Hotel
@ 8:45 -Of course people are going to say you're lying, because Paul T said in an article several months ago that the headliners were already booked and set in stone.

Buzzcocks can't be a reunion act since the reunited in 1989 and have toured regularly.
I'm gonna put this out there... beach boys would look great on the line up
Anon@9:37That's awesome. Can you find this article?
@3:22 -Transcript is here:http://coachella.com/forum/showthread.php?t=49619The article was published July 17th. Headliners were booked before publication. So anybody on here claiming to have inside scoop who says the headliners are still being decided, moved around, etc (i.e. EVERYBODY), they are lying like usual.
I think with news of A Beach Boys Reunion they could be a serious consideration for Coachella. Close out the Outdoor stage or a perfect sunset set on main stage (not a sub headliner). Any thoughts? I think that would help sell some tickets to a different demographic plus, hell I would enjoy hearin a few BB surfin songs.
^thats what I'm talking about^
it would only be cool to have the Beach Boys if it was them playing Pet Sounds in its entirety, otherwise take that shit to a county fuckin fair
umm... isnt it obvious.. i mean really lets just look at this for a second.. first time EVER an event in this fashion has ever even been attempted (double weekend) now they need a massive headliner to fuel such an event and the only one i can see that would bring people in from all over the world is daft punknow i dont want to get into rumors so ill only state what has been varifiedthey say on their own site to expect a concert in 2011/2012coachella kicked off their last tour they surprised us in new york with phoenixand ever since their release of tron they have been absolutely silent which is more of a sign than any watch their name be on the poster
@12:49 that's been my theory ever since two weekends was announced. Clearly "the big 4" was a test run for two weekends, so they have had the big headliner(s) in the bag since well before Coachella 11. Word through the grapevine is that Daft Punk was asked for 11 and they said "we are not ready yet." maybe the second half of that conversation was "but we will be next year." GV watches it sell out in six days for Kings of Leon and go "oh shit we need to up capacity for [huge headliner]." Also Monk had DP on her list until the last minute, perhaps the source was confusing being booked for 2012 for 2011.Where I'm less convinced is that this style thought out theory with lots of proof was done for DP last year. And the year before that. Not to mention Radiohead is just as big and they are the band that has the most rumors this year and "leaks". they could have easily been the band that prompted two weeks instead of Daft. So I'm not allowing myself to get my hopes up...ifthey are there I will literally pee a little, but I'm not going to count on it despite the evidence.
FRI - Eminem/DaftSAT - No Doubt/Justice (though Justice isnt getting a co-head spot, just closing the mainstage)SUN - RadioheadEVERYONE OF YOU WILL SUCK IT WHEN YOU SEE.I WAS FIRED FROM A LAWYER'S OFFICE ON FRIDAY. THIS IS WHAT WE WERE DEALING WITH. EMINEM WANTED TO DO SATURDAY AND NOT SHARE HEADLINE, BUT NO DOUBT'S CONTRACT WAS ALREADY SIGNED AND THEY WERE SET FOR SATURDAY, WHOEVER SAID NO DOUBT WAS EVER OUT IS AN IDIOT, THEY JUMPED AT THE OFFER BTW. literally JUMPED.
I know this is going to disappear and going to be counted with all the “fake” posts, but this is the state of the lineup. No Daft. Headliners are only three, and they are what everybody has been guessing: Radiohead, Coldplay, No Doubt. Despite what everybody here thinks, Paul T is very excited about No Doubt and is banking on their new album being huge. No single headliner was the reason for the two day switch, the festival getting bigger as a whole was. All three have been booked forever.Sahara is essentially not even booked at all, it’s a bit of a mess. There was a big internal dispute over the direction the Sahara will head in next year…some wanted to keep booking EDC/Hard acts, some wanted to go more experimental. So that part of the lineup more or less up in the air, although Kaskade, Simian Mobile Disco, Justice have all been locked down, as have several smaller acts. Apparat and Modeselektor are also booked, may end up in Mojave. Justice has not been placed, they will either close a stage or be the Sahara headliner, it is essentially banking on how well their live show is received when it debuts. David Guetta was in talks, but his ego was ridiculous and he was demanding money and billing that GV was not prepared to give him, and so they decided they didn’t want him that bad and have frozen him out.Bon Iver has literally been booked since last Coachella ended, Justin was so electrified about the energy of the festival after his Gayngs/Kanye performances that he committed a week later. No OutKast, but we will get a solo Big Boi performance. Pulp is in, Fleet Foxes, Neutral Milk Hotel, Florence, Incubus (I know…), Nicki Minaj (I KNOW…), Queens of the Stone Age, Tom Waits, My Morning Jacket is getting a subheadlining position and an extra long set, although to get that they had to compromise and it will likely half overlap with the headliner of the day and will probably be on the Outdoor. There are several big names being wooed for the rest of the subheadlining positions, most are close to signing but I’m really only being told who has signed on. Most of the undercard is booked, but I am not privy to all of it…The Weeknd is booked but they are terrified of a flake performance, Yeasayer will be back, Lana del Rey got a spot within the last few weeks based on the hype she’s been getting, Pusha T, Boris, St. Vincent, The Black Lips. These names were all told to me anecdotally in various ways, but I know that essentially all of the undercard is a done deal (they are keeping a few slots open in case anybody blows up over the next few months, Lana got in that way).Pure Filth/Oasis Dome will be back, but all that I’ve heard is that Kreayshawn (the chick who does the Gucci Gucci song) is booked, probably for a Lil’ B type spot.Who will not be there? Feist, despite her new album, is not doing it. The Throne was actually offered first subheadliner of the poster (more on the poster format in a second) just because they couldn’t give Jay-Z and Kanye headliner again so soon, it was summarily turned down, although they weren’t nearly as bitchy about it as you might think. The Knife was in talks for a second, but they are just not ready.The only two repeats will be as follows. Foster the People is getting another shot and will probably be a Mojave/Outdoor act. SBTRKT is coming back, but he will be live, probably Gobi but maybe Mojave if he keeps getting traction.Details of the weekend are that the headliners will be locked in to a night…Coldplay opens on Friday, No Doubt is on Saturday (if Justice closes the main, this is the night), Radiohead Sunday. However, the rest of the set times will not be the same. They literally (so far) have succeeded in replicating the lineup exactly, but not every act will play the same day due to touring schedules. So the poster will read the top three names on top with the dates they play in smaller font directly below them, and then everything else will be billed under them. Days for the rest of the acts will not be released until set times would be.
^ what other acts do you know of?
at 8:10.. why should we believe you?im not gonna until the poster comes out.hoping for daft
There isno way that with how badass Deadmau5's latest setup is that he won't be there......he was there in 10.....he is due back....fucker did four nights at Palladium
^I've said it before and I'll say it again, Deadmau5 is locked in to close the mainstage saturday night, not Justice. They'll be there but in the Sahara.
Deadmau5 will not be there again so soon. He'll be back in 13 or 14 with a new live set up...read about it somewhere. Also, while it's a well constructed story, you people are fools if you believe 8:10.
@9:00 - I know of no other acts, the only reason I know any of the undercard is because of specific stories. Pusha T was something about how they debated inviting him because Clipse had been a no show in the past, there was something weird about St. Vincent's rider, The Weeknd they are worried because they canceled some shows, etc.
Anon 10/2 @ 8:10shut the fuck up with you're regurgitated bullshit. Anyone can compile "likely" artists, throw in some fabricated scenarios leading up to the booking and make it sound legit. To your benefit you crafted a believable scenario but ultimately you don't know shit. Perhaps you should join a creative writing class.
@853He already has a new live setup...and new material...and he's fucking huge...
I emailed Tony Kanal qnd he confirmed No Doubt will be at coachella.. But I also emailed No Doubts manager and he said that they weren't playing.. Mmmm
Write a long enough paragraph and you dummies will believe anything. Too funny.
@1103 Yes but he played two years ago. Big acts are rarely recycled that early. I don't think you'll see Deadmau5 at Coachella this year. The only way he does it is if GV wants to have a DJ on the mainstage and figures nobody else is big enough right now.
^Contd...Other than those who have already done it or don't want to, of course. Mainstage style acts usually wait 4 years to come back around.
Honestly, for those people who incessantly post about how other people's "predictions" are absurd and nothing can be believed, why even visit this blog? It is ALL speculation until the poster is officially released. Even if someone claims to have "insider information," there will never be proof to substantiate the claim. The reason the rest of us visit this blog is to help get us excited and throw around names. It's all fun and games. What else are we posting about if not lineup speculation?
can we talk about what would be the candidates for 2013 as headliners??
PhoenixThe Black KeysDaft PunkFor 2013
Hey idots, I just found out that Madonna is headlining the Saturdays...dead fucking serious.
bad spelling goes a long way towards discrediting already retarded posts
@3:50 PMthe reason people bash the anonymous posters on this site is because they have no credibility and no real sources. it takes 10 minutes to create a post that makes you seem legit, with nothing more than a general idea of who even has a chance of playing coachella. however well intentioned those people are, they are just propagating bullshit. the reason everyone comes here here is not to hear the aforementioned idiots spread lies and fantasies. it's because, hate her or love, Monk has proven over the last few years that her sources are legit and you can at least partially trust her posts. the comments section should be people sharing links to real rumors and discussion of who should be there, what stage people should be on, etc. if people want to say who they like or hope for- fine. but when you post something claiming to be "in the know" anonymously, expect to get flamed because its obvious your full of shit
^ Saturday seems weak...
Won't take any of these anon rumors "seriously" until mid-November. The statement that the undercard is already booked is laughable.
2013 HeadlinersToolDaft Punk•PhoenixBeastie Boys
Phoenix wont headline until new album. Radiohead is booked so. . .Tool not for 2012. Madonna is most possibly and realistically be a Saturday headliner next year. Shes dropping a new album in spring, and is rumored to play half time super bowl haha. Madonna is more realistic then No Doubt.So it seems:ColdplayMadonna? No doubt??Radiohead
lol i just noticed you were talking about 2013 haha
I said 2013 not 2012 headliners.2012 headliners are locked in.Coldplay, No Doubt & Radiohead will be atop of the poster
fuck me...IDIOTS, you are all idiots, not idots. Madonna WILL headline one night. I don't know anything else about this fucking festival, but the circumstances were such that I was in the right place at the right time to find out. you're welcome, dipshits.
The chance they bring Madonna back after her Sahara tent debacle is minimal at best, and definitely not this year.
@Chris:The post is full of bullshit, but it is true that Paul T apparently books the undercard first. Whether it would be done by now is whatever, but he does do it first.
I'd like to hear some evidence behind such a claim.
Okay first off, Madonna gave one of the most loathed performances in all of Coachella history. She begged Paul T to let her play for years and he finally said yes and it was an absolute sham. There is no way she's ever playing Coachella again, let alone headlining. So you are an idiot for saying that.Second, it is not unrealistic the undercard is already booked. If you had bothred to read the Desert Sun article you'd see that Paul T says he expects to have the entire lineup done by the end of September, because since it's 2 weekends he needs to give bands an extra heads up. That's not to say people cannot be added between now and January, but they basically have an idea of what their lineup is going to look like.People need to get a clue.
^ isn't it also true that you have no idea what you're talking about?
^actually, no, idiothttp://www.mydesert.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?category=PluckPersona&U=c30cee87984f4a4daaa743b9dac77b74&plckPersonaPage=BlogViewPost&plckUserId=c30cee87984f4a4daaa743b9dac77b74&plckPostId=Blog%3ac30cee87984f4a4daaa743b9dac77b74Post%3a5720ffcc-d03c-44bd-be3c-5d0c909a1e79
Paul T already has the headliners and will be done with the undercards very soon.Didnt read that link but I assume its the Sun article where he says hes finishing early bit still not releasing the lineup until the normal time(jan) even though it will be done much earlier than normal.And where are you getting this Madonna bullshit. She headlined the Sahara in 06 not the festival, and had a terrible set. Now as she drifts towards irrelevancy and old age shes gonna come back in a year where headliners are more important than normal because of the new setup and be on the mainstage? Fucking laughable. Give me your number, id love to buy whatever drugs youre on for coachella. Madonna doesn't fit the profile of a coachella headliner and she wouldnt even subheadline if she was there. She wont come any where close to indio this april unless she buys a ticket.
Any chance for Friendly fires??? They played last in 09, they did lolla this year. It's possible???
I really hope Neutral Milk Hotel is there to keep all the lame hipsters out of the Sahara so us party rockers can get our shuffle on!
this is from the article:He wouldn’t tell me if his headliners have played Coachella before, but he did say the lineup will include bands he’s nurtured at past festivals.HMMMM....if that is 100% true, then who are everyone's guesses going by that rationale? I want honest ones! and can we please keep this place positive, the vibe of this blog used to just like Coachella - AWESOME, but we have somehow strayed from that? Why?What are some bands that have been "nurtured" at past Coachellas that could honestly headline now?-Phoenix? (i only think this is possible if a new album is coming out before then? But even of, are they really big enough to headline?? My guess is prob not...-My Morning Jacket? (maybe all the rumors are true about them? they DID subheadline in 2008...)-Watch The Throne (i know they both JUST did it (Kanye and Jaz-Z), but that would fit that description and they are starting a tour in Nov...-Deadmau5 would make sense for sure....and he has a new Daft Punk Alive-esque fancy setup that sold out Palladium 4 times here in LA in August, he could be a mainstage closer for sure-Daft Punk could be it too, as they were NOT headliners last and in a way he nutured them by helping them get re-introduced to everyone with that legendary set....NO one thought they were THAT freaking awesome til that set happened...i mean COME ON! it was GOLD!-Massive Attack (could they pull it off??)-New Order-Amy Winehouse ( I mean she was supposed to sub in 2009, but did not...she would KILL in the desert....buh dum ching!....sorry, could not resist
^ worst post.
Call me crazy, I just do not see MMJ headlining for the year they need to sell out two weekends for the first time. I love them, I just don't think they are big enough to headline a two-weekend festival (but one weekend, maybe). Seem more like a Sasquatch/OSL headliner to me.
Definitely true, but I could see what fake post @ 8:10 said realistically happening where they get an extra long sub set
I just picked up $50 of Northern Lights :)
I need to meet Lucy and Molly at Coachella...I hope someone can introduce me.PS...MONK WTF are you?!?!
Madonna is indeed headlining. In fact, co-headlining with No Doubt.For those of you calling me an idiot, flame away. In a few months you'll all see. .
I'll miss this thread
Its Thom Yorke's birth day today.Ya'll wish him ha good one!
Monk, please bring this blog back up. Its no fun waiting for the line up to be released with out you making us excited with rumors or confirmations. Even if you get your "sources" from the Coachella forum, i could care less. We miss ya monk.
