THE COACHELLA LINEUP HAS BEEN ANNOUNCED SINCE THIS ARTICLE WAS PUBLISHED: SEE THE COACHELLA 2012 LINEUP HERE
The 2012 Coachella lineup is usually released in January, ending the massive run of rumors over Coachella 2012 headliners and reunions, and usually marking the beginning of the sale of Coachella tickets. Will Radiohead be at Coachella or is this just another Coachella rumor? Most who claim to know are lying, and the glut of fake Coachella posters has become a tired game of guessing the impossible. We can also look forward to a Coachella webcast / live stream for this year.
There's been lots of Coachella lineup rumors, and popular Coachella 2012 headliners include Radiohead and The Stone Roses. The big Coachella reunion this year might very well be The Stone Roses, although traditionally the “Coachella Reunion” phenomenon is usually a band that reunites out of the blue first and foremost in a Coachella appearance, the cat’s already out of the bag on The Stone Roses reunion. You can always keep tabs with the official Coachella Festival forum, a hotbed of activity around Coachella rumors and tried and true speculation. The Spacelab Festival Guide will list the 2012 Coachella lineup when it becomes officially available.
The Coachella lineup announcement usually happens via Los Angeles radio station KROQ, so that’s where the focus will be until we’re told otherwise. The Coachella 2012 dates are April 13 - 15 AND April 20 - 22, and were announced back in May, marking the first year that the Coachella Festival has gone down over two weekends instead of one. The location of Coachella is the Empire Polo Fields in Indio, California. There was a mild controversy over permits for the Coachella Festival last year, but ultimately it seems to have been sorted out.
Check out video coverage from last year's Coachella Festival. There’s always a Coachella webcast, and 2012 should be no different. Details on the Coachella live stream are not known yet, but should emerge later. Last year the Coachella live stream and Coachella videos were run on the Spacelab Media Player, this year we’ll do the same with a Coachella Festival video channel.
Coachella has emerged to be the coolest of summer music festivals in the U.S. Picking up where Lollapalooza left off, Coachella has become the stamp of approval that lets people know that any band that plays there is very talented and worthy of your attention. It's located in sunny Indio California, so how can it be bad?
