The lineup for this year’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival has been finalized at long last. For those who happen to be in SoCal this is the giant semi-hedonistic alternative and indie music fest that takes place every year in Spring out in the desert east of L.A. (Indio’s Empire Polo Field to be exact) The gathering is sort of like a Lollapalooza and this year it’s happening on April 29-30.
We kept seeing supposedly “official” lists of who was playing every so often, but here’s the lineup straight from their site. I often could care less about the headliners… it’s the bands in the smaller print that are often the ones I’d like to see. In that spirit, here is the list in REVERSE order for each day, with links to Itunes for the bands we like in case you should be wondering what they sound like:
