This just came up on the LA Times now link is bad :

Coachella 2013: Full lineup revealed; Justin Timberlake, Daft Punk headline

Years of hopes and rumors have finally come to fruition, for Daft Punk is set to return to the live stage to close the 2013 edition of the dual-weekend Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival. Goldenvoice president Paul Tollett felt he painted himself into a corner after last year's edition of the event. "I asked myself how we could live up to the expectations that follow witnessing Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg alongside a hologram of 2Pac, but the stars aligned and I could not be more proud," said Tollett. "We get more requests and fake lineup posters clamoring for Daft Punk than any other act. Getting them to play in 2006 was a last minute miracle that resulted in a worldwide phenomenon, and because of the reputation of that performance, they've been hesitant to revisit, but now they have a new album and a live show planned that is going to blow everyone away." A release date has yet to be set for the still-untitled Nile Rodgers collaboration.

The notion of Coachella as purely an indie rock and electronic oasis has dissipated in recent years thanks to well-received sets from headliners Jay-Z and Kanye West, and now pop superstar Justin Timberlake will shatter that conception as he brings "sexy back" to the opening night festivities at Empire Polo Field, his first performances in support of his forthcoming album "The 20/20 Experience."

Despite the months of intense speculation among bloggers and members of the fest's official message board, AEG-owned promoter Goldenvoice continually shocks even the most jaded of fans and connected of insiders year after year. Keeping the tradition alive are a headlining performance from the reunited Britpop outfit Blur, along with fellow countrymen The Stone Roses for their first stateside appearance in two decades. Joining them for rare festival appearances are the notoriously reclusive Tom Waits and Swedish electro duo The Knife. Also reuniting are Ben Gibbard's electropop sideproject The Postal Service and 90's shoegazers Slowdive.

Completing Coachella's top tier are breakthroughs Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Modest Mouse, The xx and Phoenix, legends Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds and New Order, Trent Reznor's new band How to Destroy Angels and dance sensations Skrillex, Pretty Lights and Bassnectar.

Surprisingly absent are recent chart-toppers Mumford & Sons, but folk-tinged indie pop is more prevalent than ever in 2013, with The Lumineers, Of Monsters and Men, Father John Misty, Ben Howard and Emmy the Great on the bill. Rounding out the rest of the lineup are rising stars including Solange, Alt-J, 2 Chainz, Angel Haze, Sky Ferreira, Bat for Lashes and Odd Future's Earl Sweatshirt.

The majority of passes for Coachella went in a pre-sale last May, but the remaining supply of three-day general admission wristbands will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. for $349.

I'm grateful for this thread as this has been buried too many times in other threads not dedicated to this.

Would be stoked to see: Tom Waits, How To Destroy Angels, Daft Punk, Nick Cave and Modest Mouse.

I will be utterly dissapointed if JTimb is a headliner. Not trying to diss him, but shouldn't he be playing a KISS FM show, or maybe Lolla?

Would be stoked to not see Mumford & Sons.

just saying a three character minimum is as useless as a forum post that says "wow" or "lol"

so........if jurassic 5 is really reuniting this year, wouldn't they be included in this article?
just brainstorming. i agree that it's written with a journalistic tinge to it, but nothing that a procrastinating undergrad couldn't whip out in < 1 hr

Obviously we can't know for sure until it drops, but still seems like perhaps this was released and rescinded at the request of Goldenvoice maybe due to some last minute (possible major) changes.

I wouldn't hate this.

Gotta love what you can do with Firebug and some in-page HTML editing lol

I didn't the write article text, I just used what was the rumored article from the earlier posts I saw and changed the html code around on the LA Times site to make it look legit. So technically this wasn't photoshopped (unless you count the cropping of the page which I did use PS for)

Touche. Didn't read your earlier post.

So did you really troll all the giddy idiots? Or are you trolling us into thinking you trolled them?

I really did make the screenshot, but I didn't write the text. I saw the posts earlier with the text from the supposed taken down page and everyone saying they wanted proof of a screenshot, so that became my inspiration to play with the html code using firebug. I used the rolling stones article from a previous day, changed the paragraphs and title then linked the picture to an old coachella pic that LA times had used.

Worst part making it was the Recent Articles box... when i was editing the page all the articles in that box were from around 1-2pm when i was making the faux screenshot, so I had to look through archived articles to find ones before the time and change the titles for all of them.

Then I used a crappy firefox extension to take the screenshot and it actually wouldn't take it because of a glitch. I didn't want to install another one and erase everything I already did to the page (which would happen had i refreshed) so i was able to copy/paste the screenshot into photoshop. It was on the large side (filesize) and very tall so i cropped it and lowered the jpg quality to about 60. The jpg quality is why the text looks like shit on the screenshot.

It's cool that the LA Times even had to deny it and wrote an article about it. Never thought it would go that far. I actually didn't even think about anyone contacting the writer to see if they wrote it, i just used the one that wrote the Stones article by default.

That's amazing, all that hard work sure paid off! I can't think of a time when more people were actually fooled by a "leaked lineup".

A trolling for the ages. I wanna find you at the festival and buy you a beer.

I wouldn't be the slightest bit surprised if this article was about 99% dead-on (when it was written) and the reason the lineup stalled forever is because it all started falling the fuck apart. Daft Punk and TLake probably dropped and then RHCP got scooped up as a last-minute, 2012-festival-regurgitated piece of shit replacement.

That will be the story I choose to believe due to the long wait for a lackluster headliner lineup. True or not.
