As you can tell by the poster above, the 2012 Coachella lineup has been announced and it just might be the festival to beat this year! In my opinion, Sunday looks to be the best day, followed by Friday, with the Saturday headliners seeming to be kind of meh, but the lower ranked bands are pretty good. One notable omission is the reunited Stone Roses though. Why aren’t they headlining?
Here are my picks for each day (and feel free to post your picks):
Friday: The Black Keys, Pulp, Refused, Afrojack, Explosions in the Sky, M83, Girls, Frank Ocean, Yuck, Neon Indian, The Black Angels, Atari Teenage Riot
Saturday: The Shins, Miike Snow, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, St. Vincent, Kasabian, Buzzcocks, Destroyer, tUnE-yArDs, Black Lips, Grouplove, Keep Shelley in Athens
Sunday: Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg, At The Drive-In, Justice, La Roux, DJ Shadow, Wild Flag, Gotye, Fitz and the Tantrums, Real Estate, Lissie, Metronomy
If you feel like staying in Indio a bit longer, you can re-live the weekend a week later from 04/20 to 4/22, when they do it all over again.
Now if only I could figure out the logistics of how to get there and where to stay if I do end up going at the last minute!
