Be it Daft Punk’s epic show in 2006, or the watershed, Tupac Shakur hologram appearance with Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg last year, the Coachella Music Festival has earned an admirable reputation for hosting remarkable performances by some of the world’s most beloved musicians. That stellar reputation has resulted in an overwhelming demand for Coachella 2013 tickets, and for the second year in a row, it convinced festival organizers to spread the music over two consecutive weekends. This year, Coachella 2013 is scheduled for April 12-14 and April 19-21, and it’s going down at its usual stomping grounds, the Empire Polo Club in Indio, Calif.
Thankfully for those planning on heading out to the festival this spring, Coachella’s trend of excellence is sure to continue, as headliners like Blur, The Stone Roses, Phoenix, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers are set to rouse the masses gathered in the Coachella Valley desert. The daily lineups for Weekend 1 and Weekend 2 are identical, and as always, this California spectacle will feature more than just a top-heavy bill. Both weekends will highlight standout acts from genres like indie rock, hip hop, folk, punk, and electronic music, and there will likely be more than a few surprises in store.
This will be the first time that Blur plays in the United States since July 2003, and the first time the Stone Roses play a date on American soil since 1995. But Coachella will be a monumental event for more than just these Brit-pop icons. Recently reunited acts like Jurassic 5 and The Postal Service are scheduled to take the stage, the inimitable and famously difficult-to-book Lou Reed will make his presence felt, and Trent Reznor will be debuting his newest project, How to destroy angels.
