Coachella 2013 Lineup Includes Blur, Phoenix, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Stone Roses
The Coachella 2013 lineup has been announced, and, with it, festival attenders can expect to see British rockers Blue and The Stone Roses.
Along with the British rockers are French indie-rock band Phoenix and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
Organizers stated on Thursday that these four bands will headline the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.
The annual festival is set over two weekends in April and is one of the largest music festivals in the United States, reports Reuters. In total, the massive Indio, California event attracts more than 80,000 people.
Top-billed acts in 2012 included Tiesto, Swedish House Mafia, Afrojack, and David Guetta. With last year’s festival featuring more electronic music DJs, it appears that this year’s festival is planning to return to its rock roots.
Coachella 2013 will take place on April 12 to 14 and 19 to 21. It will have the same line-up both weekends, allowing more people to see the acts. The festival has been held at the Empire Polo Grounds since the festival began in 1999.
The Los Angeles Times notes that it has a reputation for attracting Hollywood’s most famous as well as a heavily curated lineup that features underground artists, hitmakers, and those looking to make their comeback.
The unique desert setting of Coachella has become increasingly resort-like as well. At the highest end of the VIP scale, festival goers can rent $6,500 air-conditioned tents.
Along with the headliners, other anticipated acts include Wu-Tang Clan, Sigur Ros, The Lumineers, and The Postal Service. In the past, the festival has featured Prince, Kings of Leon, Beastie Boys, Pixies, Muse, Kanye West, and Madonna.
