    Both. The first one is the finalized poster, the second was the lineup that they announced when tickets went on sale. Prince was a very late add to the proceedings.

    Also, they often used to have posters with all 3 days represented at once like that. Not so much anymore.

    I don't know if anyone has mentioned this, but Prince was a late add.

    Maybe it's just me but for me, Prince's late add was the reason the posters are different.

    Did Prince play that year or was that another festival?

    I think Prince was added on late to that year's Coachella

    I think I figured out the add - I can't remember if it was William or Harry, but there was definitely a Prince in attendance that year.

    I think 1999 and 2008 are the only years they did that. I suppose 2001 too, but only on a technicality.

    There was a huge outcry when they merged the three days into one in 2008. It was an awful idea. There is a version of the final lineup split across three days out there too.

    1999 was split into 2 days.
