Coachella - wish i was there

Seasoned festival professional still able to keep hold of the beer.




A friends sister told me she was going to go to a festival in California this year. Known for bringing bands back together such as Pavement and Death From Above 1979 in recent years and being the USA's answer to Glasto, I investigated..........





 Turns out to be some boss festival and has a sick ol' line up.

Best of the British: Radiohead, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, Pulp, Florence & The Machine Kasabian and Arctic Monkeys
Best of USA: Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg and The Black Keys.

The big shock for me was a eagerly anticipated reunion from cult following rock band At The Drive-In the precursor (yay used that word again) to The Mars Volta who are pretty epic with both bands being known for their energetic live shows.

Grammy award-winning duo La Roux will also appear alongside UK dance acts SBTRKT, Calvin Harris and Nero and a whole bunch more.



For the first time the event will take place over two weekends on 13-16 April and 20-22 April featuring the same line-up. Around 90,000 places will be available for each weekend. Totes jel -_-

  5. ATDI would be a lot of fun to see I think.

    Also, I think two weekends is a lot of time to dedicate to a concer.

  6. "Radiohead" Nah, I'll be sitting that one out. Calling Radiohead the best of anything is like listing who won gold at the Special Olympics.

  7. Coachella is not a place I would ever care to go, but I would dig the black keys live.
