LET THE COUNTDOWN BEGIN, COACHELLA 2010

The lineup is finally here and it is as big as I promised! Most if not all the names I have been throwing at you from the sources from the internet (especially Consequence of Sound) have indeed become a reality and am personally very happy with the results of the initial lineup. Some might not be too thrilled, even with some of the amazing bands that are billed. Don’t worry kids as I’ve told you all many times, these Coachella promoters love to give us something to chew on, and then over the course of the months leading up to the actual event they add bands. A lot of smaller bands and midlevel acts to fill in the bill, but sometimes you will get a name that will change it all causing the world to go into a frenzy! That’s the beauty of Coachella. Enough talk here it is:
