After many delays, the Coachella
lineup was finally announced a wee bit ago. The lineup is light on huge reunions -- shocker, the Smiths aren't playing -- but has a few cool surprises.
Night one headliner Paul McCartney
is preceded by Morrissey
and Leonard Cohen
. Mr. Cohen is the big surprise/draw, because he's playing his first U.S. shows in fifteen years in 2009. Franz Ferdinand
and Conor Oberst
are also marquee names. Night two features headliners the Killers
(sigh), along with Amy Winehouse, TV On the Radio, Fleet Foxes, Superchunk
(!), Henry Rollins
, Bob Mould Band
Night three should bring all the old goths/gazers out of the woodwork by featuring My Bloody Valentine, Throbbing Gristle
and headliners the Cure
. X, Paul Weller
and Peter Bjorn and John
are also up there.
The entire lineup is after the jump.
