The first of this year’s two Coachella weekends kicks off the day after tomorrow, and the festival has just revealed its schedule for this year. As usual, with any six-stage show, there are going to be some heartbreaking choices in there for just about anyone. The Replacements are playing at the same time as Bryan Ferry, and the poor Dismemberment Plan are up against Nas, the Pet Shop Boys, Skrillex, and Muse. If you’re a Mogwai fan, there’s a good chance that you’re a Queens Of The Stone Age fan, too, and good luck figuring out which you’ll go see on Saturday night. Personally, I would have some real trouble making the A$AP Ferg/Title Fight/Jagwar Ma decision, and GOAT being scheduled against Waxahatchee and Wye Oak is just cruel. (Seriously, go see GOAT, though.) The Chance The Rapper/Courtney Barnett conflict is a tough one, too. Below, you’ll find the breakdowns for all three days; good luck figuring out what you’re going to do. Also, you’ll see some new names on the bill, as Julian Casablancas and the Pixies are both last-second editions. Take bets on which one does more legacy-damage!
Pro tip: Coachella is a great place to see rappers running out onstage with other rappers. So go see some rappers.
