Coachella Music Festival Lineup Announced. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival recently announced the lineup for their annual three-day music festival. Kings of Leon (“Sex on Fire,” “Use Somebody”) will headline on April 15th. Arcade Fire (“Keep the Car Running,” “Wake Up”) is spotlighted on April 16th. Finally, Kanye West (“Gold Digger,” “Jesus Walks”) and The Strokes (“Reptilia,” “12:51”) share top billing on April 17th.
The multi-day music festival returns to its traditional home at Empire Polo Field in Indio, California. This is the twelfth annual festival and Coachella tickets go on sale January 21st at 10 AM PST.
While Kanye West, The Strokes, Arcade Fire, and Kings of Leon are the festival’s headliners, nearly sixty acts will grace the festival each day. Such acts include The Black Keys, Duran Duran, Cee Lo Green, Robyn, PJ Harvey, and The Chemical Brothers. Two surprising resurgences, Ms. Lauryn Hill and Bright Eyes, will also be playing at Coachella. Precise performance schedules have not been posted yet.
The festival continually draws in humongous crowds. Last year the famous music schedule hosted about 75,000 music fans each day. Jay-Z, Muse, and the Gorillaz headlined the 2010 festival.
Coachella welcomes campers in both cars and tents. A farmer’s market full of fresh produce is set up for campers. The festival even offers shuttles to grocery stores. Most local hotels also offer discounted rates for hotel attendees.
