January 24 2013
I needed this after the frigid weather we have been having the last few days. The first big summer festival of 2013, Coachella, announced the official lineup a few minutes ago. It is quite an impressive lineup, which includes the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Postal Service, Wu-Tang Clan, New Order, Moby, Janelle Monae, and a reunited Jurassic 5 (yes, you read right). And one Milwaukee band that you might be familiar with: Violent Femmes
Some other performers include Hot Chip, Beach House, Grizzly Bear, Bat For Lashes, James Blake, Spiritualized, Franz Ferdinand, Tame Impala, Local Natives, Alt-J, Yeasayer, Grimes, Band of Horses, Puscifer, Portugal. the Man, Johnny Marr, Major Lazer, TNGHT, Pusha T, Earl Sweatshirt, Danny Brown, Purity Ring, Kurt Vile, Father John Misty, Cloud Nothings, Jessie Ware, Youth Lagoon, Action Bronson, El-P, Foals, Dinosaur Jr., Divin Fits, and Thee Oh Sees.
Check out the official lineup poster below. What do you think of the lineup?
