Let's talk about Coachella rumors, lineup, who is going, and any possible Sasquatch implications here.

When do they usually announce their lineup? There are usually quite few cross overs, so it would be interesting to see.

Not that It's surprising, but I'm like 99% sure that Arcade Fire is playing coachella, and not Sasquatch. I'm pretty sure we've never shared headliners before.

The line up is expected usually late January, however, this year it is rumored to be next Monday. But no one really knows all the details of Coachella. Last year was a blast minus the crowding issue. What do you expect when you let in an extra 10,000 people and have little to no security.

Shit I was really hoping for Arcade Fire at Sasquatch. Oh well, will have to dream up some other headliners I guess... or make the trip to Coachella again.

Looks like I picked a bad year to go to Coachella.




Hey Gunther, I am going to Coachella this year, first time,

Of course I will be at Sasquatch for the 6th straight year.

Headliners for Coachella usually leak early, what I heard thru my many hours of searching the coachella message boards, Is that the headliners are.

Neil young acoustic set leading into Arcade fire,

Daft Punk

Beastie Boys.

but Again that is just the strongest rumor out there.[/quote]

Haha, Don't tempt me...I used to keep up on past years Coachella rumors, and isn't Neil Young always rumored?

Fucking Neil Young acoustic at sunset into Arcade Fire. Wow. ( I doubt that will happen though, but watch me eat my words)

I believe Bjork headlined each festival in 2007. I'll agree it wouldn't seem likely they would share headliners, but Arcade Fire is playing several festivals this year already, so why not add one more (at the fucking Gorge no less).

I know what you mean, everybody has been rumored this year.

Rolling stones
U2
David Bowie( every Year)
KOL
Kanye West
Outkast
the Who


But I heard it from more than one source that Neil Young will be there whether headlining or acoustic set.

Monklish has a blog and supposedly she has sources in coachella, and that is what she was hearing, she gets about 70 to 80 % of the guesses right every year. Take that as you like but as I said, every year the headliners are leaked about a week earlier.

If the NY into AC happens, I don't really care who else is there.

Cool. Looking back on the previous years, I find Coachella always has a better lineup than ACL, Lollapalooza, and Bonaroo, so this year I'm committing early. I already have car camping purchased.

Monklish may have some very limited sources, but she pretty much does the same thing CoS does - reads the boards and news. Every now and then she knows something nobody else does (The Cure).

Rumor is that Neil Young refused to sub under the Killers because they suck, but will do it for AF.

Neil Young acoustic set at the gorge with the sun setting is very fun to think about.

Yeah I rented a condo in palm springs, ( I know it's far) but my husband and I are going stay for a week. so we are ahead of the game too.

I agree with you that Coachella constantly has the best line-up except for lolla 2008, that was the best lineup ever for a festival, RATM and Radiohead as the headliners.

we had so much fun.
