2013 Coachella Lineup Announced

Coachella 2013 Lineup Blur Stone Roses Phoenix Red Hot Chili PeppersThey won’t have the Rolling Stones, but this year’s Coachella lineup is still stacked. After months of speculation and a few Photoshopped posters, the festival’s organizers announced the 2013 lineup at midnight on January 25th. Topping the bill are the one-two Britpop punch of Blur and the recently reunited Stone Roses, French rockers Phoenix, and alt-rock mainstays The Red Hot Chili Peppers.

The undercard is fairly impressive, too, with respected elder statesmen like Nick Cave and Lou Reed playing alongside indie-rock favorites like Grizzly Bear, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Modest Mouse, as well as up-and-comers like The Lumineers, JEFF The Brotherhood, and Kurt Vile. As with last year, the festival will take place on two consecutive weekends, the first being April 12th-14th, and the second on April 19th-21st. Unlike last year, no holograms are expected to make an appearance. However, if Johnny Marr is REALLY desperate for a Smiths reunion, there is that option.
