Coachella Delivers Another Solid Year Of New Faces And Noteworthy Nostalgia

0 comments

While this year's Coachella lineup didn't manage to snag the Rolling Stones, it still delivered a solid crop of bands from both present and past. We're talking Red Hot Chili Peppers, Blur, The Stone Roses, and Phoenix — and those are just the boys with the biggest font on the flyer.

Below those bands, you'll notice a slew of even more top-notch performers. Day one boasts Modest Mouse, Lou Reed, Jurassic 5, Passion Pit, Tegan and Sara, and Band of Horses, but we're probably most stoked to see the newly reinvigorated Yeah Yeah Yeahs do its thing. Day two will see acts like The xx, Sigur Rós, New Order, Hot Chip, Grizzly Bear, and 2 Chainz, along with the reunited Postal Service who may cause the equivalent of a nostalgia supernova for those of us in our mid 20s. The final day will round out the festival with Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Vampire Weekend, Wu-Tang Clan, and Dinosaur Jr. Not bad at all.

Of course, that's just the tip of the iceberg — take a gander at the entire itinerary and let us know who you're most stoked to see. And, most importantly, let the outfit planning officially begin!
