Jonathan Cohen, N.Y.
Portishead, My Morning Jacket, the Verve, Jack Johnson, the Breeders and Rilo Kiley are among the early confirmations trickling in for the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival, according to sources and an L.A. Times report. Full details are expected later today (Jan. 21).

Coachella, which will be held April 25-27 at Empire Polo Field in Indio, Calif., will be Portishead's first show on American soil in nearly a decade. The pioneering U.K. act has a new, as-yet-untitled album due in April internationally, with U.S. details still pending.

The newly reunited Verve will also be touching down Stateside for the first time since splitting in 1999, while the Raconteurs, featuring the White Stripes' Jack White, will be plugging their sophomore album, due in late spring or early summer.

Also expected today are details on a new festival in New Jersey's Liberty State Park, being launched by Coachella promoter AEG Live/Goldenvoice. Radiohead has been tipped by sources as one of the inaugural event's headliners.

A Coachella spokesperson had no comment at deadline.

The Raconteurs and the Verve?? I still don't get the appeal of either band. I hope the line-up comes soon.

I think the board has become one massive orgy with lurkers coming and not knowing where to put what...once the line up is out everything will be fine...

so apparently they don't have a headliner for Saturday yet. They are trying to lock down Kraftwerk. Just what I heard from a friend who works for DCFC.
