Coachella 2012 Lineup Announced

I know you’ve been searching high and low for the Coachella 2012 lineup, and if you’re reading this, I guess you’ve finally found it (above). The “top of the bill” headliners at this year’s festival include The Black Keys (really, are they “that big” now), Radiohead (a legitimate, albeit somewhat unoriginal, festival headliner), and Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre, (I understand the need to take a break from Kanye West (2011) and/or Jay-Z (2010), but Eminem, Lil Wayne, or even Drake would have been more compelling choices IMHO). It seems like the festival is a little light on superstar power this year, but at this stage in its life, the festival lineup seems more or less irrelevant to ticket buyers. In terms of supporting acts, Coachella’s depth and breadth is once again very impressive and for a real music lover there is much to enjoy. Having said all of that, I still won’t be there this year.

Technically, tickets for COACHELLA 2012 went on sale last year, but they go on sale (again) this Friday, January 13 at 10:00 AM PT. According to Pop & Hiss, three-day passes are $285, three-day with shuttle are $335, and VIP are $665.
