Coachella announces incredible line-up for 2013 festival
The Stone Roses, Blur, Phoenix, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The xx, Vampire Weekend (and we could go on) all playing at one festival? You've got to be kidding, right? Nope, we're deadly serious.
The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival has revealed its 2013 line-up and it's one of the best we've come across in quite some time. Joining the above bands on the bill will be Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Modest Mouse, a reformed Jurassic 5, the reunited Postal Service, Sigur Ros, New Order, Hot Chip, Wu-Tang Clan and a whole rake of other amazing bands that, quite frankly, would take too long to type out.
The Irish will be represented at the Californian festival by one of our brightest emerging talents, Little Green Cars.
We understand from a source that both Daft Punk and The Rolling Stones were also at one stage confirmed to play, but both backed out. We're not sure why the Stones dropped out, but it's understood that Daft Punk had backed out when they decided that they wanted to have any reunion gigs take place in France before anywhere else.
Coachella has a reputation as one of the world's best music festivals. Last year's incarnation was notable for Snoop Dogg's set, where he resurrected fellow rapper Tupac Shakur in hologram form for a duel performance of the two hip-hop icons.
Coachella 2013 will take place across two weekends (April 12th-14th and 19th-21st) and tickets can be sourced from the official website.
Oh, what we'd trade for a ticket to this...
