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.
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).
ah, good call. Though Bjork is kinda a once in a lifetime type get, AF will be around for awhile.
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.
I agree, Lollapalooza 2008 was too great to skip. Like you mentioned, Radiohead and Rage Against the Machine was more than worth the trip, but NIN's Light in the Sky v. Kanye West was pretty great too. They had a really weak undercard though, and (speaking from shady memory), Perry's tent was just DJs, not actual big electronic draws like it is now.
I've almost pulled the trigger on the last two Lollas. Headliners aside, the festival experience at Lolla is about fifteen steps below Sasquatch.
As for my thoughts on Daft Punk, I think there is a 0.5% chance they will be at Sasquatch, and a 5% chance they will be at Coachella. I hope I'm wrong though.
Am I in the minority in saying Sasquatch '10 had hands down the best lineup out of Lolla and Coach?
It's a tough call because Sasquatch has fewer stages, hence fewer acts. But you see the same amount of bands at each festival, and for my money Sasquatch and Coachella were about tied. It's tough to top Gorillaz, Orbital, Fever Ray and a few other acts Coach drew, but MA was excellent as well.
PS My only Coachella was 2006 - and yes, I was down in front at the debut of the pyramid, when DP fever was born.
Daft punk at sasquatch. If that happens I am going to overdose on serotonin. On the other hand if they only play at coachella, I will be very bummed. If I had the money I would go to coachella in a heartbeat.
I don't know the 2008 undercard was pretty good, the food and beer is better( and cheaper), but I agree he atmosphere is not as good.

Thanks for reminding me how underwhelming the Lollapalooza 2008 lineup was minus the headliners. Looking back at any festival 2.5 years later will unfold many hidden treasures, but this one doesn't. Many of the lower acts are still unknown, and a lot of the higher billed acts make me laugh re-reading the ordering.
We can both point high points on the undercard, and I can point out three or four jokes for each one. I'll concede we disagree.
