Coachella, a huge (by American standards) annual music festival in Indio, California (just outside of Palm Springs) has released their list of bands scheduled to perform over three days from April 27-29th. The main headliners include: The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Bjork, Sonic Youth, Faithless, The Decemberists, Kings of Leon, Rage Against the Machine, Air, Tiesto, DJ Shadow, The Roots and about a hundred other bands. Hip-hop seems to be sorely underrepresented. Beware that tickets for this musical extravaganza are from cheap with the 3-day pass running in excess of $250 and a day ticket (the first day looks to be the best day to attend with Sonic Youth, Felix Da Housecat, DJ Shadow, Faithless, Rufus Wainright, The Jesus and Mary Chain, and a bunch of others) is $85. The Europeans are spoiled by music festival after music festival practically every weekend of the summer, here's a journalist from The Guardian complaining about last year's Coachella.
