^I think that's just a general reaction to yesterday's Coachella announcement. Instagram and Snapchat is where they're giving away lineup clues, from what I gather.
2014 Confirmed Acts
Presale just started: http://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-gove...ets-9469121397
This festival got hooked the fuck up. Great lineup for a mid-size fest.
For realz. Damon sealed the deal for me .
Who is Axwell & Ingrosso? Nice to see Damon Albarn, Jack White, Deafheaven, Run the Jewels and a couple more. I wonder who will end up on Bonnaroo poster coming on 2/19...
Vampire Weekend (wait they're more popular than the Strokes now?!) & Phoenix for the kiddies. When do they let us know who's playing which day?
Another great festival lineup. Yeah Vampire Weekend are more popular than the Strokes now.

Sick lineup! Got my 3 day pass. Now I have to sell my vip coachella tix.
Damon Albarn is playing Gorillaz/Blur/etc on his solo tour right? Fuck that'd be righteous.

Would have been nice if Coachella got Jack White, Tv On The Radio, and The Strokes.. but the Strokes seemed very unlikely since they just played and everyone knew Arcade Fire was gonna play. The first two, though, I definitely am wondering why they aren't at Coachella.
I haven't been a huge fan of this year's Coachella lineup anyway, but I agree... There are several acts that have been announced for upcoming festivals, that should have been in Indio too.
This line up is fantastic! I wish that I could make it, but maybe some of these bands will tour out west.
"ain't no thang but a chicken wang"
they have an ama going on. answering a bunch of questions about conflicts.
apparently eminem was booked but then pulled out to do a stadium tour with rihanna instead.
Decent amount of vibes that they look at Coachella as a rival. First, the tweet after Coachella dropped its lineup. Then they asked their favorite non-Gov Ball festivals and they said Bonnaroo and Outside Lands. Also someone asked "Why should I go to GB instead of Coachella?" and he replied "frankly, the lineup."
This is what we know so far...
Friday: Outkast, Phoenix, TV on the Radio, Janelle Monae, Jenny Lewis, Neko Case, Damien Marley, Damon Albarn, Julian Casablancas, LaRoux, Haerts, Run the Jewels, Grimes, Glitch Mob, Washed Out, Bastille, Drowners, Ratking
