The day that many music festival fans have all been waiting for is finally here: the revealing of the 2014 Coachella line up. Headlining this year’s highly anticipated two weekend festival in April will be Muse, Arcade Fire, and a reunited OutKast, followed by a line up filled with much variety and amazing talent. Revolt TV revealed OutKast’s reunion and plan to perform at Coachella late last year. Muse had been highly rumored due to strong hints from the band, but nothing was official.
However, there remains much to be anticipated from this exciting line up. Lorde, the youthful alternative act creating much Grammy buzz will be performing amongst the likes of many legends. The EDM scene will once again be a driving force as well with big name acts such as Skrillex and the recently popular Zedd, followed up by many other captivating, similar acts. Local Chicagoan and highly acclaimed artist Chance the Rapper will also get a piece of coveted performance time during the crazy dual weekend festivities. Receiving much critical acclaim from all over the country in the past year, one could only imagine a good turn out for his set.
Other performances will include the Replacements, Queens of the Stone Age, Beck, MGMT, Empire of the Sun, Ellie Goulding, HAIM, Pharrell Williams, Foster the People, Motörhead, Cage the Elephant, Fatboy Slim, A$AP Ferg, Grouplove, Bastille, Neutral Milk Hotel, Disclosure, Broken Bells, Capital Cities, CHVRCHES, John Newman, Flosstradamus, City and Colour, and many more.
2014 marks the third year in which Coachella will be divided between two weekends, with the first of the festivities being the weekend of April 11-13 and the second weekend being April 18-20. Festival passes will go on sale beginning this Friday, January 10, at 10 AM PST. While tickets will be available for both weekends, passes for week one will only be sold with a shuttle combination as opposed to the second weekend. More info regarding tickets, festival details, and a full line up can be found on Coachella’s website.
