Coachella Announces 2012 Lineup: Radiohead, The Black Keys, Dr. Dre And Snoop Dogg To HeadlineBy Travis Woods
Well, live music fans, that time of year has come around again—the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival has announced its 2012 lineup. And for those who can’t recall, this is the first year in which the festival will be repeated for a second weekend. It all goes down on April 13-15 and April 20-22. Check out the complete lineup below and let us know: does this rock, or is the lineup a bit of a letdown?
As you can see, the headliners consist of The Black Keys, Radiohead, and Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg. The varied undercard has such acts as Pulp, The Shins, Bon Iver, M83, Florence and the Machine, Cat Power, Mazzy Star, and more.
Still, this lineup seems a little underwhelming compared to those of the past few years, which boasted such acts as Paul McCartney, Leonard Cohen, Kanye West, The Cure, The National, My Bloody Valentine, Pavement, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, PJ Harvey, and many, many more. Plus, Radiohead previously rocked Coachella in 2004.
But that’s just my opinion? What do you think of the lineup? Love it, disappointed, or just ‘meh’? Will you be going? What do you think of spreading the fest over two weekends? Let us know in the comments wall below.
