hey monk is there any chance Queens of the Stone Age are there this year? they just wrapped up their first album tour that GV produced and they say they are going to tour their second album (Rated R) next year. I saw them 2 times on their last tour and would love to see them again next year... please tell me there's a chance.

what da fuck. I highly doubt rihanna will be playing. Although she did "beg" GV for her to perform next year. If anything, the closest thing for a illuminati slave to headline it would be RHCP. I highly doubt that one too though.

i think you underestimate how big the crowd would be. Depends totally on when she was playing. A top slot, yea shed have an empty stage. if they gave her an evening slot and the sahara wasnt popping off she could easily be one of those bands that gets a pretty big crowd.

Everyone who goes to coachella knows that there is always some big name you see at first and think "I will never see that person", then when set times come out and theres not anyone really playing agaisnt her its like why not check out what the hype is about. 5000 out of a given 50-60 that are still in the festival at the time she plays is way too low an estimate

^ You are an idiot.
1. They don't play everywhere.
2. They produced the best two albums of the last two decades according to most music critics, Ok Computer in 90s and Kid A in the 00's.
3. When they played Lolla 4 years ago, they were the only band playing during their time slot and guess what, all 70,000 people were there being awed.

What are the POSSIBLE headliners that are realistic Monk? NOT what you all WANT people, but are we HONESTLY looking at? U know?

AND PEOPLE, enough! Coachella has the GREATEST vibe ever, can we not have a good vibe on here? Lets stop sh*tting on each other and being rude and name calling, this is supposed to be FUN!

This seems to be the pool we should expect 3 or 4 from? And Monk, do u think it will be 4 headliners like last year or should we stop trying to think there is some formula?

POSSIBLE HEADLINERS:

PROBABLE

Radiohead
Coldplay
Outkast
Foo Fighters
Red hot Chili Peppers
TOOL
No Doubt
Beastie Boys

LESS LIKELY

Daft Punk
Roger Waters doing The Wall

Radiohead doesn't play everywhere. They haven't played a festival in the US since 2008. They haven't done a show bigger than a small theatre anywhere in the world since 2009 (even their surprise Glastonbury show was small). Stop bitching about Radiohead, they are the #1 band in the world and haven't played Coachella since 2004.

Rihanna isn't headlining Coachella. That's just dumb. I could definitely see her do a Lauren Hill spot or the outdoor theater though.

Also, anon1240 you are a moron.

@8:54 AM, have you seen the crowd that attends now? The commitment to EDM is so strong that they have the Sahara, Pure Filth, DoLab, and Heineken stages dedicated to it, plus all the electronic acts on the other stages. Remember Kanye West?

The only EDM act that could headline is Daft Punk, or potentially (and this is a stretch) the Chemical Brothers.

There is a big EDM scene at Coachella, but they aren't headlining Deadmau5 or Guetta. They could very easily close the mainstage after a headliner, however.

Rihanna will be at Coachella...in the VIP tent. Seriously she's not playing Coachella in any form. Not only is she the entirely wrong demographic, she is notoriously wooden when she performs "live".

Frankly putting somebody like Rihanna on even the outdoor (like somebody suggested) doesn't make sense and will never happen because even if she was doing a set in the Heineken Dome, the second somebody like Rihanna plays Coachella everybody will cry that they jumped the shark.

If we're getting a pop star this year, it will be Drake or Nicki Minaj.

As much as I would love for Radiohead to be there, this article makes it seem unlikely:

http://consequenceofsound.net/2011/10/ed-obrien-discusses-radioheads-upcoming-tour/

”Outdoor gigs can be the best gigs, but you’re at the mercy of the elements. It just doesn’t feel right at this time. The record, which has a lot of detail in it, it needs to sonically be in a space where the music is loud, strong, and detailed.” It sounds like those recent duo of dates at New York City’s Roseland Ballroom are a good glimpse of what’s to come.

Totally Weak.

Bon Iver will probably be on main stage as a sub. Or at the least just after sunset on either main or outdoor. I agree his music would sound great in the mojave like Grizzly Bear's did in 2010. I was disappointed the last couple of years when Animal Collective & LCD Soundsystem were on the main & !!! on the outdoor - i wanted a more intimate environment. That being said, I guess since I've been going since 06 the bands I used to love to see in tents will now be on the bigger stages.

@4:55, "no one in America knows Pulp though" should read "no one in America knows Pulp but the musically informed, the band's rabid cult fanbase, and anyone that saw Great Expectations, Trainspotting, or The Venture Brothers."

They may not be on the radar of the average feather-wearing 18 year old that only uses bands for fashion accessories, but you can't get a reunion like Pulp without putting them on the main stage before the headliner. Remember, they were the headliner or subheadliner and on the main stage of every festival they played this year, not just in the UK. Do you think every attendee knew Bauhaus, My Bloody Valentine, or anything by The Verve that isn't "Bittersweet Symphony?" Jarvis Cocker had a big crowd in 2007, too.

P.S. Bon Iver just sold 12,000 tickets in LA, so no tent.

Pulp would not be in a tent. You really think their management would accept such a low billing and payday? In 2007, Jarvis Cocker solo was the first act on the third line and the main stage was scheduled to be inactive during his set. My Bloody Valentine was a subheadliner despite their limited appeal and name recognition, and so was Love & Rockets, and neither came with the baggage of being a bona fide headliner all over Europe.

Am I the only person who thinks were in for a surprise or two for how epic the lineup is? Coachella is popular but its not popular enough to sell out with a bunch of milquetoast bands headlining and sub headlining.

daft punk has been silent too long. Were a year removed from Tron and they havent released a new cd in almost 7 years. Usually there are at least basic details of what they are working on and right now its complete darkness aside from very obscure rumors and references.

Coachella or a LA venue show in 2012...hopefully the former probably the latter

You are in idiot.

Also, I know for a fact Wilco isn't playing...much to my disappointment.

I would say the majority of people who actually like music, love Radioheads newest two albums. I would love to see them just play those two albums in their entirety, plus of course maybe a Idiotecque and I might be wrong encore.
