Coachella 2013 lineup announced

The artist lineup has just been announced for the annual Coachella music and arts festival in the California desert. Wu Tang Clan, Jurassic 5, Sigur Rós, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Father John Misty, Beardyman, Café Tacvba, 3Ball MTY—should be a good one for all who can make it out there. I'll be home watching the live stream, and you can join me there. Poster below.


  1. Yawn.

    Also- while not as popular as many of those other artists, it’s criminal that Sparks are relegated to the fine print.

      1. It’s a fucking travesty that the Red Hot Chili Peppers get the biggest type (in 2013?!?) and Lee Scratch Perry gets the smallest. 

  2. Lou Reed and Johnny Marr were the names that caught my eye. Not sure what either of them might be like in concert these days though. I’d like to see Sigur Rós too, though I feel they’d be best in a relatively intimate old theater where their sound could really fill the place.

    In all there’s nobody I’m dying to see, but it does look like there would be a lot to enjoy on all three days – the one time I went (2010) was pretty mixed, to my taste. Although, that can be good too because it enables you to wander around listening to things you haven’t heard of that you would miss if you plan out your day to listen to all the better-known bands.

  3. The Headliners are kinda fucked up for me. I realize that is subjective… 

    Stoked for
    Grimes, James Blake, Purity Ring, Postal Service, Passion Pit, Yeasayer

  4. A a friend on Facebook pointed out:  The Sunday line up is kind of bitterly hilarious, though, considering it was Nick Cave who said “I’m forever near a stereo saying, ‘What the fuck is this garbage?’ And the answer is always the Red Hot Chili Peppers.”

  5. I stopped going to Coachella years ago. Madonna and The Cure headlining an alternative music fest? Riiiight. They treated attendees like shit. Shade was conspicuously absent, water was expensive, public drinking facilities literally consisted of a hose, port-a-potties were in short supply, and the clear glee on the faces of Indio PD officers as they swarmed people for minor drug infractions was alarming.

    1. As a citizen of Palm Springs, I find the idea of anyone deliberately going to Indio hilarious.

  6. Y’all are far too bitter. That line-up would have me making my way to any other state in Australia, and probably across to New Zealand. A flight too the US however…
