Coachella 2011 Line-Up Announced
January 19, 2011

Weeks of speculation is finally over...

The line-up for Coachella 2011 was announced this morning and it looks amazing.

The desert in Indio, California will be overrun for an entire weekend (April 15-17) by the biggest bands in the world, tens of thousands of music fans. I'm also going to be there down in the dirt with the unruly crowd. It's going to be hot and crazy and probably really exhausting, but it'll be oh so worth it.

Kanye West and Kings of Leon are headlining, but I'm booking my plane ticket to see Arcade Fire, Big Audio Dynamite, The Chemical Brothers, Broken Social Scene, The New Pornographers, and a re-united Death From Above 1979.

Did you see the line-up yet? Let's book a bus trip together, people.
