Who the fuck is playing this year? I have no freaking clue. Up until today I thought for sure Mumford & Sons were going to be headlining. Tour dates in Europe pretty much eliminate that. I also thought The Killers made sense, but their dates announced today make them really unlikely.
Pearl Jam makes a lot of sense. Maybe the rumors about a Pearl Jam/Soundgarden double tour would start with them co-headlining a night? I’m betting Deadmau5 and Skrillex will be there. Queens of the Stone Age will be there.
If Phoenix or the Yeah Yeah Yeahs release their rumoured album and it blows up, they could possibly headline? But considering neither of them have a release date yet, its not going to happen.
So whos left to headline? Some big rap name? Watch the Throne or an Outkast reunion would probably be the only ones at this point. I doubt either of those. Classic group? I think the Stones are out. Talk about Bowie every year, but if he were coming back, he would have been back for the Olympics…as much as I hate to say it, with the announcement of the Black Sabbath album and tour dates, it would make sense for them to come back after they had to back out last year.
So lets go…..
Friday: Peal Jam with Deadmau5 late night
Saturday: Black Sabbath with Skrillex in the sahara and Phoenix sub-headlining
My line of thinking is they are getting $25 million for their four reunion shows this year. I can't even begin to fathom how much it would cost for the Stones to get to Coachella. The economics don't make a whole hell of a lot of sense in my mind.

Unless Phoenix's new album comes out real early in 2013 and explodes more than Foster the People's album did, I can't see them being headliner matierial..... subheadliner absolutley. Nobody really knew who they were until 2009 and they've been too quiet since. Black Keys at least kept pumping out albums and Arcade Fire did the same while winning some grammys as well.
