Coachella 2011: Let The Rumors Begin
Goldenvoice announced the dates for Coachella 2011 — April 15, 16, 17 — but they haven’t announced the line-up just yet. We’re about 93 days away from the festival, and a couple weeks from artist announcements, which will probably arrive just after MLK weekend. I put together this totally wack poster to start the conversation/anticipation. The sections are divided up into who we’ve heard strong rumors about (Menomena is, I think, the only band that’s confirmed their own appearance, McCartney headlined 2009, but…), artists whose album and touring schedule fits Coachella’s dates, and the artist and bands that are totally wild guesses and daydreams and wishes.
So who would you like to see at Coachella this year? Here are the bands above, in list form:
The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart
Kings Of Leon
The Go! Team
Toro Y Moi
Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti
Iron & Wine
Gang Gang Dance
Hercules & Love Affair
… And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead
The Beastie Boys
… And here’s one person’s fake Coachella 2011 lineup poster. Here’s a blank background, if you want to try making and uploading your own.
