The line-up is out for the 14th Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, and there’s a lot of reasons for music fans to be excited, especially those obsessed with early-’90s UK music. Friday night will feature co-headliners Blur and The Stone Roses, two seminal UK acts that have reformed in recent years, much to brit-pop lover’s delight.
Saturday proves it still possible for newer bands to hit massive success, with French indie-poppers Phoenix handling headlining duties, followed by UK phenoms The xx. Sunday offers veteran fare with the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, two acts who have been making music since before the average Coachella camper was born.
Other highlights include Resident Advisor’s #1 DJ of 2012, Seth Troxler, the recently reformed LA hip-hop legends Jurassic 5, Skrillex and Boyz Noise in their Dog Blood guise and the muthaf**kin Wu-Tang Clan.
Tickets for both weekend of Coachella, April 12-14 and 19-21, go onsale this Tuesday, January 29 at 10AM.
