Coachella And Lollapalooza Ban Selfie Sticks

I honestly don't think I've seen a selfie stick in real life -- maybe I'm just not looking hard enough? -- but they're the latest tech gadget to draw significant ire from the general public at large, so much so that Coachella and Lollapalooza have decided to explicitly ban them from their festivals this year.

H&M’s Coachella Clothing Line Is Here

Earlier this year, we found out that Coachella and H&M would be extending their long-time partnership with a new venture: H&M Loves Coachella, a clothing line inspired by the California music festival.

Watch Mac DeMarco’s Teaser Video For Coachella

Coachella has posted a weird teaser video that Mac DeMarco recorded to promote the festival, which he's performing at for both weekends.

Coachella Announces 2015 Sideshows

If you're in the Los Angeles area and you couldn't get Coachella tickets before they sold out, you will not necessarily have to hit the secondary-ticket market.

Coachella Vs. Governors Ball: The 2015 Lineup War

In the past 24 hours, the Coachella and Governors Ball festivals both announced their lineups, which means summer-festival lineup-unveiling season is in full swing.

Coachella 2015 Lineup

The Coachella lineup is here. Drake, Jack White, and AC/DC will headline this year's festival. It was only a matter of time before Drake headlined one of these things. Considering the tepid response for rock bands at last year's event, it's interesting to see Goldenvoice going with Monsters Of Rock for the other two headliners. More »

U2’s Concert Reviews: Bono Loves Future Islands, The Edge Thinks Neutral Milk Hotel Aren’t That Great

It's become so easy, of late, to think of U2 in international-corporation terms that it's weirdly surprising to imagine them as human beings who listen to music sometimes. But in a new Rolling Stone story, both Bono and the Edge have a few words on younger bands. Bono, for instance, is all the way… More »

Watch Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong Join The Replacements At Coachella

Coachella's second weekend may as well not exist because there's no livestream to prove it's all real but the bands are still in the California desert doing everything all over again.
