Coachella 2010 Lineup Announced: Jay-Z, Pavement, Muse, Faith No More Top Extensive 3-Day Bill
Goldenvoice managed push out the 2010 Coachella lineup this morning -- a full 3 months in advance of the 3-day festival April 16-18 in Indio -- and before the typical fake Coachella posters made the rounds.
Two highly anticipated comebacks are realized with Pavement and Faith No More, but read deep into the small print and you'll see Sly and the Family Stone, Devo, Grace Jones, and other blasts from the past. But really, it's the combination of headliners and the acts in smaller type that have us really psyched for Coachella this year.
Passes for this year's festival go on sale Friday, January 22 at 10 a.m. 3-day wristbands will be available for $269 + Ticketmaster fees here, order via layaway plan here, or pick up in person for $285 total at Cowboys & Turbans (at the El Rey), Fingerprints in Long Beach, or Glasshouse in Pomona.
What do you think about this year's lineup? What bands are you most excited about?
