The official lineup for 2012’s Coachella has arrived, and holy sh*t are we in for some incredible times! It's still difficult to wrap my head around the fact that Radiohead is headlining Saturday – and that's not even the biggest news!
Taking place over two weekends in April, (13-15th & 20-22nd), Coachella will feature the same artists both weekends – that's right, double the music, double the awesome, double the heatstroke. And cost.
Both Friday nights will see The Black Keys in headlining position, with notable appearances by At The Drive-In, The Black Angels, Refused (WOW!), The Arctic Monkeys and Cat Power. Coachella’s Saturday features Radiohead in the top spot, backed up by Bon Iver, The Shins, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, AWOLNATION, Feist, and St. Vincent.
Here's where sh*t gets weird. Inexplicably, Dr. Dre & Snoop Dogg headline the festival’s closing night(s), which may very well mean we're closer to the release of Detox (did we jinx it?)
Other acts include a reunited At The Drive-In, Justice, Florence and The Machine, Beirut and Girl Talk.
Three-day passes ($291) go on sale Friday, January 13 at 10 a.m. through Coachella.com. Get those pennies ready!
