So....this made its way across the web today, sparking controversy, elation, and on the other side of the coin, frustration, about the state of modern day music. It's the 2010 3-day Coachella lineup, and in my mind, it is virtually untouched with regards to quality, quantity, and most importantly, diversity. The programming team has paired what I consider to be some of the most relevant up and comers with a healthy dose of arena rockers, rounded out by a very impressive list of classic bands and solo artists that have recently re-entered the spotlight.
To help illustrate my point...on day 1, you can see Deer Tick, Them Crooked Vultures, and Jay-Z, on day 2, White Rabbits, Devo, and Muse, and on day 3, Miike Snow, Pavement (!), and Thom Yorke.
These acts may not be your cup of tea, but I'm confident that there is indeed something for every music fan at this year's Coachella incarnation.
