COACHELLA FEST: We’ve pulled together the must-listen Coachella lineup for 2013
California’s hotter-than-hot Coachella music fest is almost here, and we couldn’t be more excited to join the sweaty-chic masses. The buzzworthy bash in sunny Indio spans two weekends, April 12-14 and April 19-21, bringing a packed lineup and plenty of food and drink for music lovers.
When Coachella first began in 1999, headliners included Rage Against the Machine, Beck, andMorrissey, drawing a crowd of 10,000 people. Since then, Kanye West has headlined in 2011 and Tupac returned in a mind-blowing hologram performance last year. This year, Blur and theStone Roses co-headline, along with Phoenix and Red Hot Chili Peppers. The fest’s impressive lineup also features big names like Earl Sweatshirt, The XX, Grizzly Bear, James Blake, andPassion Pit. The event’s food scene is just as jumping, with a beer garden opening and a fleet of top food trucks.
Grab your sunblock and get ready for the ultimate musical experience. And if you can’t make it to Coachella this year, YouTube’s live streaming the event. Party on. —Mina Kang
