I'm really loving this line-up.
All of these are great bands/artists, and are definitely worth checking out.
The Stone Roses
Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
5/1 Sleater-Kinney @ The Palladium

6/4 The Mountain Goats @ Pappy & Harriets
7/15 Shellac @ The Regent Theater DTLA
Yes this lineup is amazingly stacked. From the second row down. Much different feel than last year. Feels like they're back to catering more to real music fans rather than tween ravers.
Really excited about this lineup....already worried about the conflicts
Oh look it stopped snowing...
Yeah, the undercard is awesome to make up for the weak headliners, but an awesome undercard just means Conflicts Galore! They just want us to buy both weekends for sure to see every conflict we missed...pretty sneaky Golden Voice.
Quick glance line up looks pretty bad especially on facebook since the bottom 5 lines are barely readable. After digging into the line up though I have to say the undercard on this line up is so fucking good, there are going to be so many sexy acts in the tents. As for the headliners i'm probably going to watch Dog Blood on Friday, Phoenix on Saturday, and it looks like Eric Prydz on Sunday? Fuck RHCP what are they going to do thats memorable/different?

Last years lineup was sinfully bad. This lineup is nearly perfect, the most balanced I've seen since 99 or 08.
Why do you guys defend a 400$ ticket with shows that cost 15$-30$? I realize nobody cares about headliners, but you spent money on them 7 months ago.
There are a ton of good undercard acts, but they are all cheap. How can anyone justify the pricetag beyond the coachella brand name? If gv wants to throw an underground festival with no big expensive names, they should be lowering ticket prices.
"How long will this last, this delicious feeling of being alive, of having penetrated the veil which hides beauty and the wonders of celestial vistas? It doesn't matter, as there can be nothing but gratitude for even a glimpse of what exists for those who can become open to it."
Best lineup since I've been going
Austin City Limits 2005
Coachella 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 (W1), 2013 (W1)
This lineup is seriously stacked. I know that Blur/Stone Roses and Phoenix aren't the biggest headliners, but they are quality acts and will put on amazing shows that I'm definitely excited about. The undercard is really unbelievable this year though. Modest Mouse, Sigur Ros, The Postal Service, New Order, Grizzly Bear, Passion Pit, the list is insanely long. There are easily 30 acts on this poster that I'm genuinely excited to see.
I'm pissed - Only because I can't buy tickets and go BOTH weekends to see all the bands I'm likely to miss because of conflicts. BEST COACHELLA EVER and it's my 11th! Under card is MASSIVELY stacked.
The Stone Roses

How to Destroy Angels

Lick an orange, it tastes like an orange. Lick a pineapple, it tastes like a pineapple. Go ahead, try it. Try some more. The strawberries taste like strawberries. The snozzberries taste like snozzberries! We are the music makers, and we are the dreamers of dreams. Come along, come along.
back to the basics and i love it !
The lineup looks fucking awesome! Sure, Sunday looks a little weak, but that's only because Friday and Saturday are so stacked. I never thought I'd be able to see Blur, the Stone Roses, and Nick Cave all in one weekend
