If Amon Tobin is doing the same show he did while he toured... YOU NEED TO SEE THAT ****.

Solid line-up, seems top heavy because i'm not too excited about the undercard bands. I'd be most excited about At the drive-in reuniting. Also rumors are that Black Sabbath was suppose to headlining the 3rd day, instead of Dre and Snoop, what a bummer.
edit: also, jeff mangum doing a set outside of NY is pretty sweet too.

Can't wait for Pulp and the Refused reunion. GY!BE, EitS, St Vincent. VERY nice. The undercard is a monster!!!

It's not perfect, but overall I'm pretty happy. Good mix for my taste - if you look at my ATOY list, 10 out of 24 are playing (3 of the top-5), plus another 10 off the honorable mentions list. Top that off with bonuses in the form of the likes of Pulp, Jeff Mangum, GY!BE, The Shins, etc., and my "wanna see" list is already spilling over 30, and I'm glad I'm going both weekends, because inevitably there will be horrible conflicts, like last year's Arcade Fire/Suede one. Plus the artists that I'm not that familiar with that I will want to check out in advance, or in person. Although I was kinda hoping for The Antlers in there somewhere, but you can't have it all.
Also, the fact that will make some people pissed off (that the likes of Radiohead or The Black Keys/Arctic Monkeys aren't doing a proper tour stop in SoCal) is actually more of a positive for me, because that means I won't have to shell out to buy tickets to those shows as well, but can instead see them where I was already going regardless, and have already paid for the tickets.
However, most importantly - WILD MOTHER****ING BEASTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

fIREHOSE!!! That's who I'm excited to see! Missing some bands I was really hoping to see but otherwise solid undercard.

I'm happy with the lineup. Was hoping for some more experimental/seminal electronica artists (aphex twin,underworld,kraftwerk,richie hawtin etc) but amon tobin should be amazing. I thought it was almost a for-sure thing that New Order was going to be there since they are playing at Ultra Music Festival a few weeks prior to coachella. Undercard looks very strong, and of course all the reunions will be fantastic. I'm super excited to see James and Squeeze. Anyone else think there's some room for a late-add co-headliner on friday night with the Black Keys?

How great is it I'll finally get to see Squeeze? Truly love a lot of their songs. Here's my early planned to see list (which will, of course, be riddled with conflicts once the actual schedule is released)
Explosions In the Sky
We Were Promised Jetpacks
Godspeed You! Black Emperor
High Flying Birds
Florence and the Machine
At The Drive-In
Who am I missing that I would later regret?
