A tweet from the Coachella people has revealed the 2012 lineup. Heres a list of personal highlights . . . The Black Keys, Swedish House Mafia, Arctic Monkeys, Explosions in the Sky, M83, Cat Power, Jimmy Cliff, Girls, M.Ward, The Horrors, Neon Indian, Dawes, Givers, Band of Skulls, Wolf Gang, LA Riots, Bon Iver, The Shins, Kaskade, Miike Snow, Jeff Mangum, Andrew Bird, Feist, St. Vincent, Manchester Orchestra, Kasabian, AWOLNATION, Kaiser Cheifs, The Head and The Heart, Grace poter and The Nocturnals, Black Lips, Childish Gambino, Grouplove, We Were Promised Jetpacks, We Are Augustines, Keep Shelly in Athens, Justice, Florence, Beirut, The Hives, Nero, Wild Flag, Modeselektor, Dada Life, Porter Robinson, Santigold, Flux Pavillion, Gardens & Villa.
So, is this list legit? I still remain a skeptic until they are willing to post their full line up on their website. The headliners all make sense but the order of importance on many other bands is hard for me to understand. Girls are great but better than Givers, No. St. Vincent over The Head and The Heart, Girl Talk over Calvin Harris. The list goes on and on. Time will tell . . .
