Coachella 2014: Arcade Fire, Outkast, Muse headlining
Queens of the Stone Age, LordeFatboy Slim, Beck, Calvin Harris, Skrillex, reunited The Replacements, Ellie Goulding, Girl Talk, Broken Bells, Neutral Milk Hotel, Nas, Haim, Pharrell Williams, Disclosure, The Knife, Lana Del Rey, Pet Shop Boys and more help to fill out the bill. General tickets go on sale in two days, on Jan. 10, though a previous early bird sale is responsible for the majority of ticket sales so far; only VIP passes remain for Weekend 2, and Weekend 1 buyers must purchase with a shuttle combo, prices all starting at $375 for the three-day fest.
As with other years, Coachella boasts a big reunion, with Andre 3000 and Big Boi combining again. Revolt.tv and Billboard reported all the way back in November that their appearance was confirmed, though Coachella promoter Goldenvoice remained mum at the time. The hip-hop/pop duo has been on hiatus since 2007 with each going their own way for solo, guest-spot (ahem, and acting) careers.
The Replacements, as previously reported, have also been doing the reunion waltz; the rock troupe, Outkast and Neutral Milk Hotel join acts like Blur, the Pixies, Rage Against the Machine and even a posthumous "hologram" of Tupac with Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg that have reformed in or around the springtime festival.
This is also the third year Coachella has taken over two weekends at the Polo Grounds in the California desert, with each weekend touting the exact same lineup with very few exceptions. It is one of the earliest and largest American music festivals of the year.
Blur, the Stone Roses, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Phoenix, the xx, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Wu-Tang Clan and the Postal Service were among the biggest names from last year's event.
