Full Coachella Lineup Announced

Whew. What a day. Being that I spent it compulsively refreshing every Internet music resource for the full lineup of the ninth-annual Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival I’d say it was almost worth it.

After last week’s teaser, at first I, a self-proclaimed spoiled-rotten music junkie, complained of the somewhat lackluster bare-bones lineup. Portishead? Awesome, I’ve been waiting for this, but they are planning an extensive tour anyway. Chromeo, Justice, M.I.A., Sasha & Digweed – been there, done that. And then I saw the complete lineup. And then I saw an even more complete lineup. And then -- I saw the official poster.

Surely this still doesn’t top the Bjork/Red Hot Chili Peppers/Rage Against The Machine alternative rock wet dream come true of last years festival. While some complain this year lacks the rock, however, it still does manage to roll with plenty of indie-rock and electronic acts just now brimming at the mainstream. Allow the list to speak for itself:
