This board is so obsessed with getting as much information and confirmations as possible, yet demands to be surprised when the lineup drops.
Path of Discussion The Taylor Swift rumblings begin to catch on... --> Infinity Pass confirms Phoenix--> Phoenix's line up spot ranges from 3rd to 8th depending on the poster and/or poster --> Coachella and its electronic line up--> A bunch of similar-looking mocks --> The guy who I said yesterday was banned actually wasn't banned --> Lollapalooza and its headliner classification --> An unnecessary amount of Lil' B discussion --> wolfmanjess's "indie headliner discussion" radar goes off --> Presentation of objective facts repels him... for now --> Posters from The South lead the way on fast food discussion --> Infinity Pass mocks us and causes confusion --> Continued Lil' B discussion pushes the thread to the outer limits of unreadability --> Then Lono shows up... --> Postictal babbling about Lists
Take this as you will, this is what I've heard from my SOOPER SEEKRIT INSIDER SOURCES. I'm certain that the lineup will look very close to this, probably about 90% so.
Elton John - Kanye West - Jack White Vampire Weekend - Avicii - Phoenix - the Avett Brothers - Eric Church Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds - Disclosure - the Flaming Lips - Neutral Milk Hotel Childish Gambino - Lionel Richie - Chromeo - Ben Folds - Motorhead - Broken Bells John Legend - Chic - Cage the Elephant- Andrew Bird - The Glitch Mob - Cee-Lo Green Umphrey's McGee - Capital Cities - Phosphorescent - J.Cole - CHVRCHES - The Head and the Heart Deafheaven - DARKSIDE - Dillon Francis - Chance the Rapper - Rodriguez - Bobby Womack - Danny Brown Fitz & the Tantrums - Andrew W.K. - Kaiser Chiefs - Third Eye Blind- Apocalyptica - Washed Out - London Grammar Robert DeLong - Cayucas - Run the Jewels - White Denim - Shovels & Rope - King Khan and the Shrines - Reignwolf the Naked and Famous - Meshuggah - Caveman - The Lone Bellow - Thao and the Get Down Stay Down Break Science - Lake Street Drive - Hurray for the Riff Raff - Ben Cameron - SANGSMOM
Possible: - Beck, I heard he fell through but MAYBE! - OutKast, they're in Poland but Bonnaroo is still trying because PLANEZ! - Lorde, because why not! - Foo Fighters, they might headline instead of Jack White because Jack White is crazy! - Lady Gaga, but they're afraid of the backlash because vibez so they're on the fence! - Superjam was going to be Jack White and it still might be unless it's not! - Zedd, might be in the Avicii spot because Avicii is a DIVA! - Prince because he does what he wants so he might decide at the last minute to play!
Path of Discussion Boner leads a crusade in support of redisni (?) --> Poster "theheat" uses excessive ellipses (while making terrible points) and not once for the purpose of indicating an intentional omission of a word, phrase, or sentence! --> REPENT!--> 20 or so pages disappear from the thread --> MMJ song discussion kicks off the page compensation --> AC/DC discussion. Attacks are spearheaded by someone who loves The Foo Fighters... --> A bunch of mundane babbling --> BOOM. --> Insider then goes on to confirm Jack White, Ice Cube "strong, strong undercard" rule out Prince, JT, Taylor Swift, Foo Fighters --> He/She then turns his/her attention to teasing the "'4th headliner' whatever that means" (his/her words) --> People immediately begin screaming names at their monitors (I'm picturing a lot of keyboard pounding; spittle striking the screen) --> Infinity Pass shows up Pro Wrestling style -->Chaos. More shouting. People dancing on the ceiling. --> Consensus is reached on the "4th headliner", but people keep guessing other names.. all night long --> Infinity Pass confirms Zedd, Die Antwoord; rules out Billy Joel--> The headliner is determined to be Lionel Richie. Truly. --> Top Billing --> Infinity Pass begins toying with the thread; doesn't rule out an EDM headliner --> Everyone gets in their last shouts of the night --> Infinity Pass says Good Night

.... --> Poster "theheat" uses excessive ellipses (while making terrible points) and not once for the purpose of indicating an intentional omission of a word, phrase, or sentence! -->
quote..."The ellipsis can also be used to indicate a pause in the flow of a sentence" quote..."Depending on their context and placement in a sentence, ellipses can also indicate an unfinished thought, a slight pause"
Regardless...who really cares how the quack someone punctuates a sentence on a message board...especially THIS message board, where conversations go from in depth discussion of feces --> to ranking sandwiches --> to ranking whiskey --> to ranking gaming consoles, all within a 24 hr span.
Rant over. I did make a couple of terrible posts, I blame InfinityPass and Insider for depleting my serotonin over the course of that ridiculous 2 hour stretch yesterday...I crashed.
And finally to Ned, as everyone has said, excellent job on this thread. I'm sure most people either don't have the time to wade through the Headline thread, or were too smart to even go there, and you made it both easy and enjoyable for them(and me) to catch up, while at the same time providing sharp, concise humor.
