Coachella is always a highly sought after festival ticket, what with it being the first major festival to kick off the summer and it being a place for celebrities to let loose and wear their fringed garments without too much criticism. Now, as rumours circulate that both LCD Soundsystem AND Guns and Roses are set to reunite, people will be engaging in bare knuckle activities in a bid to be among festival goers in 2016.

According to The New York Times: "The next Coachella will also feature the return of LCD Soundsystem, the dance-rock band led by James Murphy, which last performed in a farewell show at Madison Square Garden in 2011. Rumors of an LCD comeback surfaced on Dec. 24, after the group released a new song, 'Christmas Will Break Your Heart,' on its website. A spokesman for LCD Soundsystem declined to comment. Representatives of Guns N’ Roses and Coachella did not return numerous requests for comment."

It was only a matter of time before James Murphy got a hankering for playing live again... Fingers crossed for Electric Picnic. We can dream.
