With a little less than three days before its 2010 rendition kicks off, the Coachella Music Festival has made three major announcements. 1) As rumored, the now Interscope Records-signed, South African hip-hop trio Die Antwoord has been added to the 2010 bill. 2.) The festival has officially soldout. (Expect a per day attendance of 75,000).
And 3.) The day-by-day scheduled has been announced. As you’ll see by clicking here, there are conflicts galore: Jay-Z vs. Public Image, LTD vs. Fever Ray; Them Crooked Vultures vs. Grizzly Bear; Faith No More vs. Hot Chip vs. Bad Lieutenant; Pavement vs. Little Boots vs. Orbital; Spoon vs. Jonsi; Charlotte Gainsbourg vs. Julian Casablancas. Oh, and if you want to see both Mr. Yorke and Gorillaz on Sunday, you’ll have to do some serious running! Ouch! Share your biggest gripe below… (and begin scheduling over at Coachooser).
So, to summarize, we now have a lineup that looks like this, a schedule that looks like that, and there is no possible way for you to get in to this year’s Coachella other than doing something really drastic… like buying a ticket on Craigslist.
The Coachella Music Festival takes place from April 16-18 in Indio, California. A number of Consequence of Sound contributors will be onsite and will provide a complete recap following the final sounds of this year’s festivities.
