Time to kick your hipster into overdrive as the official lineup for this year's Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festial is here. Somehow the hipster ointment known as Kings Of Leon are headlining Friday night so maybe this year will feature a few less people wearing Converse than normal. Joining in on the large font on the poster are Saturday night's headliner Arcade Fire, and closing things out in an extremely self-absorbed way will be Kanye West on Sunday night, apparently with a little help from The Strokes as they too stuffed armadillos in their font trousers.
Yeah, so that's a pretty messy set of headliners, featuring two that make me physically ill. As per usual the undercard is where it's at featuring SHA favorites The Black Keys, Mumford & Sons, The Morning Benders, Chromeo, Delta Spirit, The National, Animal Collective, Tame Impala, Broken Social Scene and more. To be fair there's a bit of something for everyone although the lineup as a whole is giving me a really hollow feeling, granted that's usually the case with Coachella. What do you think about this year's lineup?
