Why did you have to announce such a shitty line-up this year? Last year, you created probably one of the greatest concert experiences of my life, but that was due in large part to the line-up --Bjork, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and a reunited Rage Against the Machine headlined the event. This year you come back with Jack Johnson, Portishead and Roger Waters headlining? WTF?
This line-up is taking a beating on the Coachella message boards. Where you continue to deliver a great selection of up-and-comers (Tegan and Sara, Cold War Kids), as well as a blast from the past (Roger Waters), you failed miserably to live up to delivering the big headliners. Even worse, you failed to live up to the hype and speculation that bands like Radiohead, Smashing Pumpkins, Depeche Mode, and the White Stripes would make the bill. Tisk, tisk.
I'm PISSED that Jack Johnson is headlining Friday night. While he's a good musician, his lullaby-esque set cannot hold down at 60,000 person crowd. I'm DISAPPOINTED that there's virtually no hiphop on the lineup. Last year you brought Lupe Fiasco, the Roots and Ghostface whereas this year Aesop Rock is the only notable rapper.
Just as easily as you gained a patron, Coachella, you lost one. I'm NOT going to Coachella this year, and will instead have to look toward Sasquatch, Rock the Bells, Bonnaroo, or Lollapalooza to get my festival fix this year.
