Coachella lineup 2012


 2012 Coachella Music Festival Lineup Revealed!


Coachella lineup 2012 - Radiohead, Dre, Snoop picked for Coachella, Question: What do British sound pioneers Radiohead, hip-hop icons Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg, and blues-rock bad boys The Black Keys each have in common? Answer: They’re all headlining the 2012 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, going down April 13-15 and 20-22 in Indio, Calif.
The lineup for the 2012 Coachella Music Festival has been announced!

The Coachella lineup for 2012 was announced late yesterday, and as Larry David might say, it’s looking pretty… pretty… pretty good. The Black Keys, Radiohead and Dr. Dre/Snoop Dogg top the three days, with M83, Bon Iver, Miike Snow, The Weeknd, Feist, St. Vincent, Beirut, Girl Talk, SBTRKT, tUnE-yArDs and about a billion more rounding out the lineup. Coachella 2012 even has its reunion comebacks.
But unlike Coachella 2011, when the taste for comebacks seemed to be for ’80s revivals like Duran Duran, this year’s reunions are decidedly ’90s-era: Mazzy Star, Pulp and most notably At the Drive-In.
This means is that the movement that began petitioning Coachella for a Phil Collins appearance last year after Duran Duran returned to the scene fell on deaf ears.

It was a tough year for Phil Collins: he announced that he was quitting music this spring because he thinks no one likes him anymore. He took it back publicly, but we all know he’s feeling under-appreciated. The spontaneous Phil Collins parade in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, last year was charming but it wasn’t exactly a large-scale cultural happening.
We’ll go to Coachella this year and we’ll like it—we’ll freak out to At the Drive-In and it will rule. But we’re not giving up hope—we’ve waited this long, we can wait another year: Phil Collins, Coachella ’13.

The festival’s lineup, which will span two full weekends this year, was posted on the official Coachella Festival Facebook page.

Headlining are The Black Keys, Radiohead, and a duel collaboration by Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre.

Also participating are Florence + the Machine, Bon Iver, and David Guetta, among others.

The festival is continuing its trend of having a diverse music selection. From electronic dance music (Swedish House Mafia, Girl Talk, DJ Shadow) to indie hits (Arctic Monkeys, Feist, Wild Flag), Coachella has it all. We can’t wait!

Coachella will take place April 13-15 and April 20-22 in California.
