Coachella Lineup Announced


Toronto – Summer is coming. I know it sounds like a long way a ways when there is three feet of snow outside and the sun sets at 4:00 pm, but summer is coming. It is inevitable. With summer, comes music festivals. Everyone loves a good music festival. Today marks the beginning of summer festival scouting season as one of the big North American festivals – Coachella – announced their lineup. As per usual with Coachella, it is a blend of everything old and new. Headling Friday will be Paul McCartney, Saturday will be The Killers and headlining Sunday (again) will the the Cure. Head over to for the full lineup.. here are some key acts:

Paul McCartney
Franz Ferdinand
Leonard Cohen

The Killers
Amy Winehouse
Thievery Corporation
TV on the Radio
Fleet Foxes
Booker T & the DBTs (can you diiiiiiiiiiiig it)


The Cure
My Bloody Valentine
Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Groove Armada
Paul Weller

Definitely a decent lineup. I went to Coachella a few years ago when Radiohead and The Cure headlined and it was a great time. I definitely enjoyed the Mexican food I had. One word of advice if you go – it’s f’n hot there, bring shorts or something.
