The Red Hot Chili Peppers and Dinosaur Jr. are set to perform on Sunday April 14th and Sunday April 21st at Coachella. Puscifer will perform on Saturday April 13th and Saturday April 20th, while Trent Reznor’s How To Destroy Angels will perform on Friday April 12th and Friday April 19th.
Overall pretty weak lineup, but with some good acts mixed in on the undercard. Usually I’m not into most Coachella headliners, but I at least get their commercial appeal. Here, the Red Hot Chili Peppers are the only real headliner, but with the band already having performed two shows in Los Angeles last year makes them less of a get as a headliner. While the Stone Roses and Blur are good bands, they are more subheadliner material. I’m not a fan of Phoenix and they couldn’t headline a Los Angeles KROQ festival let alone Coachella.
The only time I went to Coachella was in 2009 to see Paul McCartney, which was unbelievable.
