    Friday, April 11 and 18
    For starters, the long-rumored reunion of Andre 3000 and Big Boi AKA OutKast is officially a go, as the GRAMMY-winning duo is scheduled to end their seven-year hiatus on the opening day of the festival's first weekend, in addition to the customary following Friday. OutKast won't be the only act reuniting those days, either, as The Replacements also have been booked for each Friday. The appearances have been billed as a "West Coast reunion" of sorts since the remaining band members already joined forces at Riot Fest in Toronto, Chicago, and Denver last year. Other acts set to perform Friday include Ellie Goulding, HAIM, The Knife, Zedd, Girl Talk, Broken Bells, Chromeo, Neko Case, Bastille, Grouplove, and The Afghan Whigs.

    Saturday, April 12 and 19
    For Saturday, Muse leads the pack in what will be the group's second Coachella headlining gig and first since 2010. Muse kept busy throughout 2013 touring in support of the band's sixth studio album, "The 2nd Law." The record spawned many hit singles including "Survival," "Madness," and the GRAMMY-nominated, "Panic Station." Matt Bellamy and Co. will be joined on each Saturday by a strong supporting cast that includes Queens of the Stone Age, Skrillex, Pharrell Williams, Lorde, Foster the People, Pet Shop Boys, MGMT, Empire of the Sun, Fatboy Slim, Nas, Kid Cudi, The Head and the Heart, and Sleigh Bells.

    Sunday, April 13 and 20
    Not to be outdone, Sunday is primed to conclude each weekend in spectacular fashion with Arcade Fire set to reprise the headlining role it also held in 2011. Unlike OutKast and Muse, Arcade Fire has its extensive Reflektor Tour lined up for 2014 as well, which noticeably made sure to leave room for Coachella and potentially some other summer music festivals, too. In addition to Arcade Fire, fans also will be treated to Sunday performances from Beck, Calvin Harris, Neutral Milk Hotel, Disclosure, Lana Del Rey, Motorhead, Alesso, Duck Sauce, and Krewella.
