All it took was a single tweet to cause a ruckus among the 2012 festival circuit, as Coachella’s 2012 lineup was officially unveiled this week in a 140-character-or-less post.
And what a lineup it is, with Radiohead, the Black Keys, and Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg all claiming top billing for the massive double-weekend event in Indio, Calif.
Expanding the shows to two weekends – April 13-15 and 20-22 – will at least give festival-goers a better chance to see all the acts they want.
Swedish House Mafia, Pulp, Refused, Arctic Monkeys, Mazzy Star, Afrojack, Explosions in the Sky, M83, Amon Tobin, Cat Power and Madness all nabbed second billing on Friday night.
Bon Iver, the Shins, David Guetta, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Kaskade, Miike Snow, Jeff Mangum, Sebastian Ingrosso, Andrew Bird, Feist, and fIREHOSE are second-billed for Saturday, and At the Drive-In, Justice, Florence and the Machine, AVICII, La Roux, Beirut, the Weeknd, Girl Talk, the Hives, and DJ Shadow round out Sunday.
