In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

While the official list won't be out 'til sometime in early 2010, Coachella fanatics have been gathering what intel they can for awhile about who is playing and who is just a rumor.

One list on a forum seems to be the best. "This is not a wish list thread," pre-empts summerkid in a Coachella forum. "News should be trickling in the next few months and this is a place where we can keep track of things and discuss the confirmed or heavily rumored (with source) acts."

Confirmed acts (with links on the list) include Music, Phoenix, Devo, As Tall As Lions, Pretty Lights, Zoe, Miike Snow, Craze and Klever, Aeroplane, El Gran Silencio and Kevin Divine.

Some band included under the "heavily rumored" list include The Rolling Stones, Beastie Boys, Smashing Pumpkins, Vampire Weekend, Yeasayer and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, among others. \
