"The Roots should headline Coachella next year."


  

          

Imagine a Soulquarians version of that Dre/Snoop show.

Bring out Mos, Talib, Common, Erykah, and Lauryn to do their respective hits. Special appearance by D? Bust out Q-Tip to do Ital?

Roots are pretty much the best touring band out there. Dre and Big Boi keep leaving that headliner money on the table every year, so The Roots might as well get that paper.

No, I think at this point, I'll rest easier knowing that they *didn't* headline.

Coachella is not something they could headline right now.

I love them, but they don't have the same draw power to headline as Prince, or Madonna, Kayne or Dre.

I could see them playing as the third-closing act of the first or second nights on the main stage. (That's the position Kraftwerk had in 2008.)

P.S. I'd love for them to prove me wrong - but headlining at Coachella is about pure popularity - not influence or merit.

I've been hoping they'd make it back to Coachella the last few years but no dice. As far as headlining White kids wouldn't know enough Roots or Soulquarians songs for them to headline. Dr Dre & Snoop & friends have songs that every white kid knows even if they don't listen to hip hop. As far as other hip hop groups that haven't already definitely Outkast as you mentioned, Wu-Tang (If all the main members where all there and maybe a ODB hologram lol), MAYBE A Tribe Called Quest, not actually a group but if The Black Keys did a BlakRoc set with a bunch of rappers it could headline but doubt that could come together.

But I'd rather Rock The Bells just because it'd be easier to get tickets. Plus it's a bigger stage, so you could get all the acts to sign on. I really don't care, as long as it happens.
