Update: May be fake, pretty unbelievable lineup. Will confirm.
Update update: Yep, fake. Should have known it, doh.
The 3 Day mega festival that is Coachella is back for 2012 with one hell of a line up! The next installment plays out over 2 different weekends of identical lineups.
The dance element features both OG’s and new comers to the scene with bassheads Bassnectar, Wolfgang Gartner, Dillon Francis heading off against the disco/house elements of Holy Ghost!, Alan Braxe, Classixx and more.
Are you a big fan of the whole ambient, post-dubstep scene? How does Nicolas Jaar, Gold Panda and Four Tet sound?
Our very own Bag Raiders get to play some jingles on the second day (Sat 14th and 21st) – check out Chris Stracey’s (1/2 of the Bag Raiders) November Top 10 here.
If you want to talk pedigree and soul of electronic music it’s hard to go past the one and only Daft Punk (new album talk here), followed closely by Turbo head honcho Tiga, German dance-fiends Digitalism, constant party starters Soulwax, Felix Da Housecat and Switch.
Many thought it to be impossible to up ante from the 2011 lineup, but the promoters for Coachella have done it!
