Monk, who do THINK will go next year?

skyler said...

Man oh man. I am already thinking about it. Let's hope they do more reunions this next year, big ones at that. And let's hope for ONE headliner to be someone they dust off as opposed to all new and current headliners. I like a little mix. SO, that being said:

I would like to see these headliners: Pearl Jam. White Stripes. Outkast. (they won't get Pearl though cause they are doing their own festival i hear for their 20th anniversary...so instead of Pearl, what about a classic act like The Stones or REM or spend the dough and get U2 but make them play a specific album like Joshua Tree. They will probably go back to having one old headliner....who will it be? if they cannot afford The Stones or talk Zeppelin into reuniting, then who would it be? Petty? The remaining members of The Who (hope not)? Guns and Roses (would only be cool if it was OG members)? Would anyone care about Dylan doing it with how he sounds now?

Subs: Neil Young (and Have Vedder come out and do shit with him, this is one thing I wish Coachella would do, borrow from the book of Bonnaroo and have people that are there jam with each other on different stages!). Velvet Underground. Pulp. Massive Attack. I would say The Pixies are due back, right? And Beck too please. Aretha Franklin would be cool or someone from that era. Stevie Wonder could rock some shit out. The Knife. People will laugh but Lenny Kravitz has never done it and he can play live.

Electronic: Justice. Thievery Corporation. Booka Shade. Prodigy. Underworld.

Reunions: well the Stripes for one and Outkast. but also The Fugees, Mazzy Star (get this done for crying out loud), Postal Service, sand for the cool 80s band of the year like they did Crowded House and Duran Duran before let's go with Oingo Boingo with Danny fucking Elfman (this would really fucking rule and could be a great Friday night sub-headliner). Buzzcocks. Husker Du. NWA w/ Eminem or someone cool doing Eazy E would be amazing.

Speaking of Eminem, A weird-as-fuck-but-it-just-might-work idea would be Eminem and Elton John doing a headlining spot together, now before you BASH this, just think about them doing "Stan" with candles all over the stage and big theatrics like Kanye had this year. Seriously, and think about him rapping over old classics of Elton's...Eminem rapping on Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting or bitching about Kim during The Bitch Is Back??? Jeez that would be amazing.

Get Silversun Pickups back and Teddybears too. And even though they just played LEFTFIELD. Holy shit were they good.

The coolest thing that could ever happen though is THE REPLACEMENTS. Seriously Paul. MAKE THIS HAPPEN. :) Need a new guitarist though... :(

I love you Coachella, I miss you so....see you next April.

I know it seems top heavy but with the two weekend format they are going to need at least one major headliner to sell all these tickets

Anonymous said...

They actually don't need hefty headliners. They sold about 40,000 tickets since this morning. Expecting another 50,000 by Monday morning. 60% sold out after the first weekend with twice as many tickets available is damn impressive.

Thom Yorke said...

Monk, do you think Coldplay will headline?. .

James said...

Monklish, have a couple questions for you.

1. They must have reeled in at least one huge headliner to really spring confidently onto the two weekend format. I'm guessing it's gotta be Radiohead because it makes the most sense, but what have you heard (if anything) about our other perennial favorites: Daft, OutKast, Rolling Stones? The only reason I don't include The Smiths or Bowie is because those seem like unreasonable pipedreams (unless I am mistaken?).

2. Fleet Foxes and Bon Iver make too much sense to not be on the lineup...any thoughts on those two?

3. My Morning Jacket...in your opinion, are they big enough for a headlining spot? They've got the albums but not the hits or the widespread indie credibility, fantastic new album though.

And if you're right about The Knife I will lose my shit.

My Morning Jacket aren't headliners? Did you see their Sasquatch 2010 show? I left at the FIRST encore and I was already blown away...and I didn't leave because of disappointment...I wanted to see that Canadian with the mouse helmet

James said...

To be fair, I love My Morning Jacket but an amazing show doesn't automatically equal headliner status. If that was the case, Flying Lotus and Trentemoller would be headlining. Not to mention Sasquatch is not at the same level as Coachella in terms of booking power, they would never be able to afford the more expensive acts like Prince/Kanye/The Cure/McCartney/Gorillaz, etc. So headliners there aren't automatically comparable.

MMJ is an amazing band but the demographic is just off enough for Coachella so that they wouldn't be a headliner (at least I don't think). Much better fit with ACL or Bonnaroo. I think if they show up (which I'm hoping they will) they are the first sub and hopefully get a longer set on the Outdoor.

@James The Cure headlined Sasquatch in 2008.

Anonymous said...

Sasquatch got the Foos this year too, so they definitely have the cheddar to get those types of headliners...I think they just DON'T want to as that's part of the festivals charm.

However, it would not be surprising if MMJ headlined Coachella, considering how they've been bumping certain bands way the fuck up the bill for the past few years (Jack Johnson, Killers, Muse, KoL, Arcade Fire, fuck even the Strokes). All those bands with the exception of Arcade Fire were billed much lower than MMJ was for their last appearance.

Expect them, it's totally possible. But I also think (this year) Radiohead is TOTALLY possible.

James said...

Yeah but have My Morning Jacket had even one mainstream hit? Don't get me wrong, I love these guys to death and want them there so badly, I just really don't see them headlining. The only recent headliner that wasn't either an industry legend/veteran or an act with multiple mainstream hits was Arcade Fire, and I think it's fair to say that Arcade Fire is much more a "Coachella" band than My Morning Jacket.

When you look at the "realistic" names being thrown around, it's mostly Foo Fighters, RHCP, Radiohead, Gaga, Beastie Boys, Coldplay, Dr. Dre, Elton John. MMJ feels so out of place with that list it's not even funny. And then when you pull out the big guns that everybody wants there, Radiohead (both a realistic and fantasy headliner this year), OutKast, Daft Punk, The Smiths, Bowie, Rolling Stones, Talking Heads, well MMJ is even MORE out of place.

I still say they are likely to show up, but they'll be first subheadliner, not headliner.

James said...

To be fair, I guess Portishead never had a huge hit in America either, but I also have heard that they were still in negotiations for Prince when the lineup had to be released, so I think they were intended to be first headliner from the start.

Anonymous said...

From a percentage number, how likely is Radiohead
Going to be at Coachella 2012?

Anonymous said...

I think it's fair to say that GV has to have at least one monster in the bag to be so cocky to do two weekends. Of all the headliners big enough to do it, Radiohead makes sense in that they have an album out. However, they are Radiohead so they are still a wildcard. There is also the fact that Daft Punk was asked to play the fest last year and the response was that they "weren't ready yet", so some people think that indicates they are planning on playing as soon as they get their shit together and that DP will be the big get.

But there is no way they'd sell out two weekends with a headlining line-up of Foo Fighters, My Morning Jacket and Beastie Boys. GV is savvy, they know that. There has to be somebody of mythical status on the poster next year for them to move to two weekends.

Anonymous said...

So, because My Morning Jacket headlined Sasquatch that means they can headline Coachella?

I guess that means WEEN can headline Coachella too.

Hah, cannot believe we already have a fake poster. There are a ton of acts on there that I really, really want to see at Coachella so it's nice to see them on there (even though this has literally no relevance as to who they'd actually book).

To be honest though, needs more "bro" Sahara picks to be believable (Avicii, Kaskade, Calvin Harris, etc) and I don't think they could sell out two whole weekends with those headliners, even though Radiohead is a gigantic draw.

you people have low expectations for coachella. if 2 of the 3 headliners end up being foo fighers, beastie boys, lady gaga, my morning jacket, coldplay....it is going to be one weak year.

i feel like all of those except coldplay are subheadliners.

Anonymous said...

Just because you feel that someone is a subheadliner, it doesn't mean that it's true.

Foo Fighters, Beastie Boys and Lady Gaga have sold millions of records around the world. Beastie Boys first album alone sold more copies in the US than Arcade Fire and Muse's discographies combined.

But Coachella's about ticket sales. All of which Foo Fighters, Beastie Boys and Lady Gaga trump previous Coachella headliners Muse and Arcade Fire in ticket sales, venue capacities and total event grosses.

Anonymous said...

Foo Fighters make sense. There are always acts at Coachella that wore out their welcome by hitting every major market multiple times and every competing festival the year prior but the plebs still bleat about excitedly, and someone needs to bring in the bros. They would fulfill both of these.

Anonymous said...

I want Teebs.

Anonymous said...

Coachella hasn't had a truly legendary headliner since 2009, and really 2008 was the last time more than one truly huge headliner appeared. That year lost a ton of money for GV, so hence the more "current" headliners of 2010 and 2011. If The Strokes, Muse and Arcade Fire can be headliners, then so can Gaga, Beastie Boys, Foo Fighters, etc (in fact, the latter three are collectively bigger than the former).

That being said, I tend to agree with those who think the move to two weekends was to increase their budget so they CAN book a headliner roster like '08 again (post Prince addition, of course). The bottom half of acts will not be paid double, and so if the budget is even just doubled for booking then that should free up more money to pursue the big dogs.

Therefore although I'm pretty sure about a number of undercard acts, I'm not going to make any headliner predictions until we see the headliner standard for two weekends of Coachella.

@9:28 Dude. GOLDENVOICE WAS WORKING ON THE STONES and they WERE going to be there. I know their road manager. Mick wanted MORE money and they just were not ready yet with a new tour. It just fell apart. Anyone that knows anything, knows that that was GOING to happen.

Daft? I dont know for sure that they were asked, but many also say that they were asked too and they didnt just want to go out with the pyramid again and with some Tron soundtrack shit (that stuff did not go over as big as anyone in their camp thought it would and it was not the hit Disney thought it would be either. When they are ready, they are not going to go anywhere else in the US first than Coachella....why? Cause that re-emergence at Chella in 06 started the wave of their music that made them ICONS. They were already popular in this country, sure, but that performance has been talked about so many times since it happened, when they debuted that fucking pyramid, that it set forth a chain reaction of "hey, Daft Punk is fucking awesome!!" and it just did not stop. Before u know it they are at the Grammys with Kanye and just killing it everywhere. They WILL be back. They know what's up.

The theme of this blog seems to be listen to the "insider tips" that match up what you want to be there, and ignore/scoff at the "insider tips" that contradict what you want.

Here's a hint: NOBODY posting anonymously on this blog has real insider information. Monklish clearly has sources in bands/booking agencies, but nobody inside GV due to huge headliner inaccuracies and she gets most of her undercard info from the Coachella board regulars.

This is a fun space for speculating but I'm not counting on anything until the actual poster comes out.

In response to the new set posters, too many big names on the second name. Remember they made that a lot less stacked this year. The Stones, Pulp, The Knife, plus two Sasquatch-level headliners is too big for a single day. Pulp would not accept a billing lower than #2, also. Interesting concept of acts being mixed up on the two weekends, though.

geez people. i never said i hated her. i don't care what deals almost went through. i come here because most of her undercard is right, but she's not right about the headliners. FACT she said the Cure and McCartney would def not be there in 09, FACT she said the Stones and Daft last year and Kanye would not.

I'm not saying I hate her or ripping on her for pointing out facts. In fact, if you read my post (anon 928) you'll see that I said "other people hate her because".

get over yourselves and get over her. She's one source I use to figure out who's playing. By using her and like 5 other sources I get a decent idea of who the healdiners will be.

11:50 Here-Living in the Inland Empire(760,951,& 909 area codes) you encounter a lot of people who work for Golden Voice that give you clues about the headliners. That’s how I am 100% positive about U2!

So no Radiohead?
Have you "heard" anything else?

Anonymous said...

@12:36 - No the only other thing that I've heard is that they are 78% capacity for both weekends...so be ready to scramble for tickets when they are released with the lineup.

If Radiohead isn't there this year, in all honesty it is an epic fail. That is what the people want and deserve. They are the best band of a generation. Please Coachella deliver.

no the people want daft punk ! this will start off the Apocalypse tour!

What if Radiohead doesn't want to play, shit head? Ever think of that? What if they're busy doing other things?

IMPOSSIBLE, I know.

Anonymous said...

^What if you are retarded. The offer would be multi-million dollar in size, they would play for that. Maybe you wouldn't because you have shit for brains.

They are a band and a business. You don't think they still feel honored to play a huge festival? You are a dumb ass. The internet is a good place for idiots like you to hide. Although Im amazed you can work a key board.

Radiohead did glastonbury as a way to experiment with performing the new songs live. Clearly a tour is coming sometime in the near future.

Anonymous said...

I hope not, the new songs suck.

They don't deserve a headlining spot.

^they don't deserve a headlining spot??

You don't deserve air to breathe

If Radiohead headlines I guarantee only 4 songs max off the new album would be played.

Force Radiohead to play.

Bands have turned down Coachella before dummy.

It's not unreasonable to think Radiohead can turn it down as well.

met a dude from GV
he said that its not insane what they got
i said what do u mean
he said they already know that friday is Beastie Boys, Sat is Coldplay and Sunday is going to be a reunion but they dont know which one yet

Anonymous said...

^people who work for GV can't just yell people who they have especially this early. They wouldn't keep their jobs. Fail

Anonymous said...

Where did Blur say they were going to play North America?

Anonymous said...

Outkast?

OIOIO said...

I meet a guy from GV last night. We had sex so he could tell me what the headliners would be. He said that they got all three already. They got: Coldplay, Pink Gloyd, and Radiohead. He also said that Daft punk will be sharing tge headlining spot with Coldplay like they did with Kanye and The Strokes. He mentioned, Phoenix, Portishead, Morrissey, Aphex Twin and Mazzy star. That's all I know.

my nephew is a paperboy on paul tollet's route and when he had to go apologize for breaking a window before ringing the doorbell, he overheard someone inside the house screaming "WE GOT BOWIE AND PULP! SUNDAY NiGHTS, BITCHEZ!" Make of that what you will.

If Radiohead plays, they'll probably play all of their new album.

Anonymous said...

Radiohead will play about 30 songs, and about 8-10 of them will be new songs. What makes you think they'll play anything less, when they've been playing 8-10 new songs off of their newest album for about 10 years, I'd like to know.

Also, I met someone from GV at a bar last week who told me the ghost of John Lennon was confirmed for Sunday night.

Anonymous said...

^when there albums had 12-15 songs each. I'll give u 6 max on q night to night basis.

Anonymous said...

^In Rainbows had 10 songs, not 12-15.

King of Limbs has 8, plus Staircase, plus Super Collider and the Butcher.

Playing 25 songs, and about 8-10 of those 11 being played seems right.

Anonymous said...

^Also Kid A has 10, Amnesiac 11. 12-15 songs has been the outlier, not the norm, for Radiohead albums.

Ryan Seacrest said...

Red Hot Chili Peppers, Beyonce, Coldplay are headlining.

It's going to be awesome when David Bowie NEVER plays. He sucks live anyway.

Thom Yorke said...

Monk, what are the possibility of the Pixies playing?

Anonymous said...

Queens of the Stone Age can't draw enough people to fill a venue that holds more than 2000 people. How are they a second-billed act?

Anonymous said...

@anon 7:09
and what say you bout Animal Collective last year?
QOTS at least get some radio play and a new album is in the works, makes sense to me they would be billed that high

Anonymous said...

QOTSA are more than capable of subheadlining.

Anonymous said...

I think so, and i think my stab at the top tier acts is absolutely plausible

And would be suffecient to sell out two weekends

Having so many of those overplayed, been-everywhere-in-2011 acts like Florence and the Machine, Death Cab for Cutie, TV on the Radio, Bon Iver, My Morning Jacket, Fleet Foxes would be incredibly boring. It would still sell well since people are dullards, though.

ballroomdancer said...

first and foremost no Daft Punk in 2012, 2013 looking more probable.....

So it looks like GV is going with 4 "headliners" once again..or at least 4 names in the big font...so two of them i can confirm being:

NO DOUBT and COLDPLAY have been signed on since shortly after this last year's fest

The other two will emerge from a pool of the following:
Foo Fighters
Beastie Boys
My Morning Jacket
Radiohead
Outkast(seriously)
Beyonce
Red Hot Chili Peppers

As has been stated Paul Tollett wants to avoid reapeat headliners, so thru the power of deduction we can come to conclude that that statement is partially true.

Ill update as more info fleshes out.

Anon @ 3:54

Whats your rationale?
•new album coming in the fall
•years on hiatus
•popular/recognizable enough to help sell out two weekends.
•New headliner

You fail
