Nas and Junior Gong are there too, there's lots of good artists in this list but how much are tickets to this shit, I wouldnt pay $200 for this festival, there's always too many popos there and too much stupid little kids.
i think the lineup is just fine and well worth the price of a ticket.
bands and artists I would be interested in
Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti
Cold War Kids
Here We Go Magic
Ms. Lauryn Hill
The Black Keys
The Chemical Brothers
The Morning Benders
The Pains of Being Pure at Heart
Big Audio Dynamite
Empire of the Sun
Jimmy Eat World
Mumford & Sons
Paul van Dyk
The London Suede
The New Pornographers
Two Door Cinema Club
Foster the People
and thats just stuff I listen to or have seen. You can always find several bands you never knew about that you end up liking quite a bit at a big festival like this.
I'm definitely not a fan of Coachella. The music stops at like 11 p.m., which really takes away from the event, imo.
Bonnaroo is the festival for the people that want a really unique event. The music goes basically all day and all night, non-stop.
This lineup looks interesting, though. Coachella usually brings it hard in terms of artists. You can also rest assured that a lot of the bands that you haven't heard and say, "Who the f#ck is that" are probably really good.
One of the great things about these festivals is discovering new music. There is a reason these bands are playing an event like this.
Also, I happen to think that Duran Duran is a really cool addition. Regardless of what people may think of 80s music, they were a very good band.
the strokes! interesting line up, really quite wide reaching, DJ zinc? duran duran and cold war kids, such different array of people. if anyone goes, check out plan B, hes english rapper / singer, song called stay too long is awsome
