Choking on Coachella

Coachella 2005 - Day 1 , Day 2 (tracklisting) The annual festival which takes place in Coachella Valley, near Palm Springs, just announced this year's lineup. Sweeeet jesus on a rye cracker!

Over 80 acts... that's a lot to chew. A couple more bands reuniting this year for the festival - Bauhaus, New Order, Gang of Four, Cocteau Twins.

Day 1 (April 30) highlights include: Coldplay, The Chemical Brothers, Wilco, Rilo Kiley, Weezer, Spoon, Snow Patrol, M83, Bauhaus, Cocteau Twins, my new fave Bloc Party and a whole lot more! Strong, deep lineup for day 1... that's a lot of eardrum candy to swallow.

Day 2 (May 1) highlights include: Nine Inch Nails, New Order, Bright Eyes, The Fiery Furnaces, Tegan and Sara and two noticeably absent from this playlist (absent from Rhapsody:) The Arcade Fire and the Futureheads. Aside from most of those I just mentioned, day 2 seems a bit more techno/electronica heavy, but still an amazing lineup thanks to The Arcade Fire, among others.
