The official lineup for Coachella 2013 is here. Rejoice! After teasing us with an “artsy” trailer earlier this week (which revealed zilch about this year’s musical acts) the music and art festival finally gave the Internet what it had been waiting for: the annual poster reveal. Those who mistook this photo of a rock in the middle of a field posted to Coachella’s Facebook page as a hint the Rolling Stones would headline after will be surprised to learn that the photo was actually referring Friday night headliners The Stone Roses.
Among the other groups with top billing for the April 12 – 14 and April 19 – 21 fest are Phoenix and Red Hot Chili Peppers. Other notable 2013 acts include: Tegan And Sara, The Postal Service, Passion Pit, Grimes, 2 Chainz, Beach House, Alex Clare, La Roux, Hot Chip, Vampire Weekend, the xx, The Lumineers, Janelle Monae, Major Lazer and Jessie Ware.
No major Justin Timberlake comeback performance? No Solange? No Kendrick Lamar playing in his home state? So much for our Coachella wish list. Now, we must await the annual wave of hilarious fake posters of what the lineup “should have” looked like to make the rounds.
Is the 2013 Coachella Lineup everything you were hoping for? Sound off, below.
