Ah, the glory of summer! Shorts. Popsicles. Beaches. And… Coachella! The Californian kick-off music fest of the summer has just announced the line up, and news flash, it’s totally EPIC!
The likes of Jay-Z, LCD Soundsystem, Muse, and the Gorillaz will headline over the three-day festival. The line-up of smaller indie acts is somewhat of a Brooklyn hipster-fest takeover, featuring the likes of the Dirty Projectors, MGMT and Grizzly Bear. The heralded second-coming of dancehall, Major Lazer, will also perform at the fest, while old-skool heads can look forward to De La Soul, and Sly and the Family Stone blowing the house down. Also on the bill are The xx, Pheonix, La Roux, Gil Scott-Heron, Sia, Grace Jones, She&Him, the Girls, Little Dragon, and Passion Pit. Oh, and some dude named Thom Yorke???
The festival will take place in 87 days, from April 16th to the 18th. Tickets for the event will be on sale this Friday, the 22nd of January via the festival’s official website.
