Laziest booking ever? Why would they bring The Black Keys back yet again?

Anonymous said...

The Black Keys said they were avoiding festivals they played in 2011...

lolcat said...

So heres the thing...

PORTISHEAD is going to do a mini-mexican tour on early May.

Count them on the bill.

There's no way The Black Keys are headlining if you have those name on the lineup.

Maybe they will sub-headline again, but i will go for THEY ARE NOT PLAYING this year.


So based on a quick analysis, my guess is....

RADIOHEAD
PULP
SIGUR ROS

BJORK
PORTISHEAD
BON IVER

FOO FIGHTERS
TOM PETTY
AT THE DRIVE-IN


Happy New Year everyone. Stay safe.

Coachella will be D.O.A. when the list is announced.

Have fun with all the frat assholes, people on their first drunks or trips without mommy,, rude, obnoxious morons with their "crews," and all around bullshit. The old Coachella was never about who was playing, that was always good, it was about the people, the vibe, the feeling, the pleasantness, the kindness, and it is what brought me and our friends from Pennsylvania and New Jersey every year. It has turned into a corporate bullshit fest filled with trendy jerkoffs and assholes.

Most of the fun in any festival is complaining about. The price of water or alcohol are good ones, the state of toilets another, camping, dubstep, hipsters, fedoras wearing douches or head dress wearing hipsters.....then you can do line ups, stages/set times, performances. I am never happier than at festivals, so much to complain about.

Man, the hate on here is just laughable. "It's all your fault that we don't like the bands you're reporting." "How dare you have similar acts to the Coachella Board?" Anyways, I'm gonna say the most logical headliners are gonna be Radiohead, Tool, and a combo of Black Keys and Foo Fighters. Which for me is a fucking Dreamchella. Radiohead and Tool are literally my two favorite bands ever and are both fantastic live. The Keys is odd since they have been there so many times (including last year). Maybe they are making up for the shitty sound they had last year by giving them a do over? Either way, I'll gladly welcome them over Coldplay and Bjork any day of the week. No disrespect to
Bjork by the way, I'm hoping it's actually her and not the Foo Fighters. The Foos I'm on the fence about. I dug their first two albums, but they rest have been meh. Grohl does always bring it live though so I'd check them out in Week 1 for sure.

The rest of Monk's list already has some gems on there. I could easily see two full weekends worth of great music with all of these acts. That being said, I've still got my fingers crossed for Sigur Ros and QOTSA!!

I love you Monk, fuck all the haters. Your blog is greatly appreciated.

@603

The festival is whatever you make of it. If you let the outside influence get to you then you're just a tool. I've been going since 01 and it has only become better. You're just a homo.

Anonymous said...

What I don't understand after 4 coachellas is the hate and language and attitude on this blog. Every year at the festival I talk to and meet all kinds of cool people.

The festival being diverse with frat boys, hipsters, Indian head dress wearing prepsters and celebs makes it great for people watching. Im sure everyone does a double take 3-4 times a day. I like some frat boys there so I can laugh at them as they fist pump in the Sahara. Did you guys ever think that maybe this is an experience that changes people for the better??

I leave feeling partied out physically but renewed 100% mentally. I change dramatically after every year because I realize I have been an ass in some way, or not accepting of a group of people. Or I realize that some of the things Im doing are right, after getting to know someone new.

The music is always awesome, there are at least 5 bands playing at all times, you only have to like 20% of the lineup to have the best weekend of the year. And if you don't like 20% of the lineup, maybe you shouldn't be at a musical festival because Coachella puts together the most diverse and unique lineup year after year after year.

I hope to see all the non-haters this year, its gonna be fuckin awesome as always. To all you negative haters...I hope someone gives you a hug before you kill yourself.

Anonymous said...

^are u really just noticing this??? WHat do U think we are all suicidal about?!

Anonymous said...

^ well sorry, i'm just finding out about this blog now. anyway, i feel like coachella has been doing the same sort of thing for the past two or three years. One indie band (this year it's radiohead, last year arcade, year before gorillaz), one mainstream (this year who knows?, last year KOL, year before Muse), and one mega (Kanye, Jay-Z, even Paul M). So i don't think Bjork fits under mega anymore since her last three albums have just been so under the radar and Black Keys could maybe be the mainstream band but that will prob be something even crappier (it always is).

I think for their first two weekend go at it, they are going to at least pull one OMFG out of their hat - not Bjork, not Foo, not anything that played a festival last year etc.

I'm not even a hater, I appreciate what monk does but this year there have been half as many updates, all of which have no major additions besides some 12pm gobi fodder and the obvious conformations from other places. There really hasnt been a significant addition from the first post. Now Monk is trying to say the Black Keys are going to headline after a mediocre performance as a sub in 2011? Come on. Douchers on the Coachella Boards have more sources than Monk these days if thats who she thinks is headlining.

I appreciate this site Monk. I truly don't understand what has happened this year though. Is the lineup on serious lockdown so much that this is all you got? If that is the case I hope we are in for some nice surprises this coming week. Are we seriously looking at radiohead, black keys/MMJ, plus one more like bjork or foos headlining? Because to me, all of the vague rumours point to that. No confirmations on big Coachella style reunions or major sahara tent draws? I am trying not to throw in the towel on this one yet, but this year has been hard to figure out. I know Coachella will be another amazing festival as always. I'm ready to be amazed once again. Just a few more days peoples.

THIS LINE UP IS WEAK SAUCE !!!!!!

Anonymous said...

Actually, there has been a lot of information during the last year suggesting that a new Daft Punk album is in the works, and they could also do quite a bit with the Tron material. If Daft is signed, GV and Daft would both want it to be a surprise. Radiohead dropped the King of Limbs out of nowhere and Daft can do the same with their new album. Daft Punk explains and justifies the Double-chella and the early on-sale. I think they'll be on the poster.

Spoiler said...

^ Bravo! Yes kids, Daft Punk will be there. They were supposed to close the festival after Kanye last year, but pulled out because they weren't going to be ready in time...ergo, The Strokes, and the new stage (which they will finally be properly utilized this year.)

Anonymous said...

I'm not counting on Daft Punk being there, but a lot of the hype surrounding them making an appearance started with lineup rumors last year. It is not uncommon knowledge that Daft Punk was approached last year and that they issued a statement saying "We are simply not ready yet." Although that could mean that they were simply written off for a while, it could also make perfect sense that they would be ready for a new tour in 2012. Just because a new album has not been announced doesn't mean that they can't headline because they honestly have no reason to announce it until it's ready to be released and because Radiohead has been such an obvious get, Golden Voice might have wanted to keep DP a secret.

AGAIN, I am in NO ways saying that I have ANY outside information in any way. This is merely speculation and something that I really hope to be accurate, but I am not expecting Daft to be there or anything.

Anonymous said...

Yes, there was some hype this year because of the infamous "We're not ready yet" quote. Prior to this year, the hype was because they showed up at the Phoenix show at MSG and the Tron soundtrack. Listen, there is hype for Daft Punk EVERY year, and every year everybody thinks this is THE year. If they show up on the poster, I'll bust everywhere just like the rest of you dolts. Don't get your hopes up. When it happens it will be ridiculous, but just be aware this hype has occurred every year following '06.

But people were also saying
the reason coachella sold out
so fast last year was that caifanes were playing and all the mexicans were coming up from mexico to see their first show....but when they played there were very few people watching.

And the lineup won't come out in the morning tomorrow. If its like past years Kevin and Bean on KROQ will say they have it on Tuesday morning and then it gets leaked late Monday night.

I have also met lots of nice people at Coachella, but if you have been attending since 2004/5 don't tell me you have not seen a change in the event. This has nothing to do with the music; it is always great. But the overall vibe has been changing for the worse. Just last year I almost came to blows for the second year in a row because someone was acting as if the entire world revolved around them, and i have seen other people being treated like shit by bunches of assholes.
And while this may happen other places, the first few years this NEVER would have happened at Coachella. If this is going to be the attitude, I'll just see the bands I want here in NYC, EVERYBODY plays here anyway, and at least I know what to expect, and that is that people will be assholes for the most part at the clubs, and I don't have to travel 3,000 miles to converse with some jerkoff, I can do that here for 20 bucks!
To all who are going have fun.

Stay home 251. I've been to 8 Coachellas and never had a run in once. Keep your ass and your negativity on the east coast please, far beyond our beautiful green polo fields.

@3:10 that's in mexico. Here people go crazy for maná. They sold out four shows at the staples center!

I was at the 1st Coachella when a fire broke out during the RATM show and a knife was pulled during Morrissey. Shit happens every year, but in fairness, there tends to be way fewer fights and arrests at Coachella than the other big fests. Truth is, very little has changed since the beginning except better facilities, stage setup, and more music. Coachella is as good as you make it.

how much were tickets when they went on sale for layaway?

Phoenix subbing for Daft Punk...wait for it :)

$269 + taxes for general admission and something like $650 for VIP. Get your passes the hour that tickets go on sale. Going to be a great year.

@3:45 pm It's the same in mexico, thay are extremely popular. But Coachella doesn't book on quantity, they book more on quality, and Maná lacks quality.

Breakbot and Bassnectar lack quality but here we are.

What about Beyoncé? she just gave birth having enough time to recover and perform in Coachella. She was there on 2010, headlined Glastonbury 2011, has mainstream appeal and critics love her.

Mexicans are too poor to afford Coachella. How the fuck they expect to get over the border anyway? Sheesh, you pea-brained hijos de putas.

I heard The Stone Roses are on the lineup. Does anyone know if this is true?

618 is right. Mexicans are really poor.

Monk, are you trolling on purpose? I used to defend you but are you serious? No way the Black Keys are headlining in the same year Coachella expands to two weekends and one year after they sub headline. You can't really suck that bad, come on Monk.

The only way this could be true was if Daft Punk was the third headliner with Radiohead, in which case Justin Bieber could be the third headliner and no one would care, and Monk doesnt want to do two years in a row of guessing on Daft.

fucking black keys as headliners is the best joke I ever heard

guys there were something like 87 arrests at Coachella last year. Something like all but 15 were for trespassing. This is a music festival with people on drugs that hosts 75k people a day. That's fucking amazing. 15/75,000. If that's a "bad vibe" you don't know what a bad vibe is. I've been going for 5 years and never seen a fight. People die at EDC and Bonnaroo annually. Fight happen at Lolla all the time. Coachella has it's shit together compared to other fests.

All those criticizing Monk for saying Black Keys are playing and prob headlining must be worried now BK have announced the 2nd US tour leg.
West coast dates, but no LA but Oakland, Sacramento, Portland, Seattle....mmmm...are you still sure that The Black Keys won't be there? And when you are selling out big arenas, why wouldn't they headline?

they arent headlining

but they are playing


which is lazy booking to begin with.

The black keys are sharing a line with Bjork. The black keys are sharing a line with Bjork.

Let's say that again.

The black keys are sharing a line with Bjork...as headliners.
Done.

Anonymous said...

^
that would be fine cuz bjork is cool

but if its no doubt, radiohead, black keys talk about a letdown. we knew radiohead so the excitement of that is tempered with the boringness of the other two choices

and no doubt is so abysmal live....so fucking bad

Anonymous said...

Foo Fighters
Radiohead
Bjork/The Black Keys

Gonna give me plenty of time to stroll the outer sets during 3 of the 4 headliners. Always a welcome fact.

Lineup will probably leak later today.

Josh Homme said...

Why would Bjork share a line with anyone? If anyone shares a line, it's the Foo Fighters. Some of you motherfuckers are real stupid and are completely out of touch with what people want.

In case you're wondering, yes, I'll be there.

Martin said...

Love to see the black keys again, but two times in a row? and as co-headliner, COACHELLA is far more creative with there line ups..

Kanye shared a line last year and he is much bigger than Bjork

if you click to go to the forums on coachella...place your cursor just below where it says Official Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival Message Board towards the bottom. click, and it takes you back to the old msg board when RATM, BJORK, AND RHCHP headlined in 2007 :x

10:46am, the sad thing part is that they are probably texting each other manically right now over the board being down, what it means, what they heard and organizing a meetup at some douchey bar where they can masturbate over seeing the name of some shitty dub electronic musician that 2% of the world has heard of written on a poster.

ATDI reuniting the day before the lineup comes out is pretty much a confirmation for Coachella.

Add to your list of confirmed, Metric and yes, No Doubt, really will be there. Excited about Metric, not so much about No Doubt.

supredouchebrigade said...

^^Sorry Douche Brigader, no one that makes 80k/yr has time to post 125x per day and spend dozens of hours in photoshop editing dogforts.

Your 25,845 post count only leaves you time for minimum wage.

But on the bright side, the rest of the Douche Brigade thinks you're real witty and will probably give you a handy near the Gobi!

handbananasstankvag said...

5 Douche Brigaders combined make 80k in a good year though. Those anal beads don't just sell themselves.
