Arcade Fire, Kanye West among headliners for Coachella 

This year’s lineup for Coachella was just announced, and it’s positively sprawling.

The Indio-held festival, set for April 15, 16 and 17, will feature three key headliners, Arcade Fire, Kanye West and Kings Of Leon, but will also feature other great artists like Brandon Flowers, Cee Lo Green, Crystal Castls, Duran Duran, Elbow, Fistful Of Mercy, Interpol, Jack’s Mannequin, Ms. Lauryn Hill, Mumford & Sons, P.J. Harvey and The Chemical Brothers.

In a “Where Are they Now” category, Big Audio Dynamite and The London Suede will rise phoenix-like for the show, which will include a virtual who’s who of young English chart climbers: Plan B, Tinie Tempah, Ellie Goulding and Eliza Doolittle.

Three-day passes for Coachella go on sale Friday for $269, including surcharges, with camping passes on sale for $75.

This year, there are several added features: An on-site Farmers Market, a 24-hour general store, a roller-skating rink and a free shuttle to a local grocery store. Additionally, there’s a new tie-in with The Creators Project (launched last year by Vice and Intel Corporation to identify leading artists who push creative boundaries through technology) that’s collaborating on art installations with the headliners.

 Better start packing the pup tent — and sunblock — now.
