  1. Crystal Castlest?
    I didn’t know they could get any Crystal Castler!

  2. Day 3 > Day 1 + Day 2

  3. so i don’t dislike DFA1979, but how on earth are they the 6th biggest act on day 3?

  4. More Death From Above can only be a good thing. Really surprising. Otherwise day 1 isn’t impressive, other 2 are quite good.

  5. Sunday is definitely the day… Duran Duran, Kanye, PJ Harvey, DFA1979, The Strokes, The National. Throw in Health and She Wants Revenge and I’m there.

  6. W000t Check out the Coachella 2011 Playlist at Playlistify: #nowplaying @playlistify a playlist called ‘Coachella 2011 Festival – raw line-up’ –

  7. “Coachella Lineup” is the glass half-full title, I prefer calling it “List of Bands I Won’t See Anytime Soon in LA Thanks to Coachella’s Radius Clause”.

  8. Hey, at least they got Jack’s Mannequin…

  9. lol, the Aquabats.

    Awesome. XD

  10. Does this mean new Animal Collective material?

  11. Day one is a strong lineup and I really would consider going but they would have to switch KOL and Black Keys on day one for Arcade Fire and Animal Collective on day two…

  12. The London Suede?! Is it finally Brett and Bernard sharing the stage together! Or just a reunion of Suede 2.0?

  13. really wish the font just continued to get smaller and smaller until you just couldn’t read the band name.. i LOVE having to be an inch from my fucking screen to read this thing.

  14. Cuanto cuesta pa un ticket de un dia????

  15. how much $$$ for a 1 day ticket???

  16. It is suede 2.0, no Butler.

  17. Death From Above 1979 reunion! so i just need to stole a liqour store :D

  18. By the way, do i need visa?

  19. I know this isn’t their official reunion because they’d already done so on Vive Latino last year but Caifanes are playing Coachella!! !

  20. The problem with festivals like these is that all the good artists are spread out over three days and a lot of bands are better than the headliners. Seriously this festival could be condensed into 1 day.

  21. No Sufjan Stevens?!

  22. I’m pumped about it, but a little disappointed No Age won’t be there. Other than that excited as hell to be going

  23. Any ideas on who might be at Pitchfork this year? I read Drake, Deerhunter, GBV, and Pulp are rumored.


    Read them here:


    I can’t believe DFA1979 is back…woof’nhoo

  25. Damn, what a great lineup!

  26. hmm, this is all about 90% filler.

  27. Seriously, who can afford this, especially now that on-site car and tent camping are sold out? I’ve been to plenty of festivals, but not Coachella. I’m baffled that they would want/allow people driving in and out each morning and night. Maybe I’m getting too old for this shit, but this seems frustrating and dangerous. I’m fine with the line-up (despite some of the “big” names), but how can I justify dropping over a grand (2 tix, food, drink, and other goodies for my wife and I) and still have to get into a car each night and drive to a campsite or pay even more for a damn hotel. Sorry to vent, but I’m disappointed.

  28. No one’s critical words will ruin my first Coachella for me.

  29. Sir Charles just went into a deep, dark depression starring at that list…it’s because he cannot make it to this festival unless he robs a bank.

    People see Rock N’ Roll as youth culture, and when youth culture becomes monopolized by big business, what are the youth to do? Do you have any idea?” — “I think we should destroy the bogus capitalist process that is destroying youth culture… the first step to do is destroy the record companies.”

  31. Coachella 2011 Sampler. Quick and dirty 220 song playlist. Listed in order by day, and starting from top down on the flyer.

    This playlist is a little appetizer of the Coachella lineup. Find something new and do research from there. Enjoy. Compiled by NightTimeVIP

    P.S. If you have weeks of time and need a 5,000 song buffet to figure it out, keep searching this is not it. If you find a mega list, let me know, we will post it also. The goal is about finding new music. Cheers
