Coachella is one of the biggest music events every single year, and has been since its inaugural year in 1999. For only the second time though, this year Coachella will be held over two different weekends, those of April 12 — 14 and April 19 — 21. The same lineup will perform over both weekends and as always, it will be held at the Indio Polo Grounds in Indio, California.
So who can you expect to see while there?
Blur, Stone Roses, Phoenix, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers are going to be the headliners for the festival, but Coachella is known for showcasing new artists; and this year will be no different.
These new acts will include Lou Reed, the Postal Service, Sigur Ros, New Order, Modest Mouse, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Jurassic 5, Japandroids, Johnny Marr, Grizzly Bear, Moby, Spritiualized, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Vampire Weekends, Wu-Tang Clan, Gaslight Anthem, and Social Distortion. Those bands who haven’t already will have the chance to finally make their breakthrough, with last year’s attendance topping out at about 650,000.
