The official lineup for the 2012 Coachella music festival has been unveiled and I can safely say that I have absolutely no interest in it whatsoever. Let me tell you which bands I’d like to see: Radiohead, At The Drive-In…and I’m done. There are honestly no other acts that would make me even consider heading out.
The festival will happen the weekend of April 13th as well as again on the weekend of April 20th. Tickets will go on sale this Friday at 10am PST on the official site
(which is currently down due to a massive surge of Internet-goers). The minimum option is a three-day pass for $285 while the VIP treatment will set you back $665. For those of you who travel, the smartest option is the general pass that includes a hotel shuttle, which goes for $335. All of these prices are before convenience charges set in, so expect to tack on another eight bazillion dollars for that (I’m joking…but only a little bit. Am I right???).
Maybe it’s because music festivals have never been my thing, but I just cannot fathom the idea of standing in a sweaty, muddy, nasty, smelly crowd for three days while being aurally blasted by band after band. Wow…did I just make that sound like some perverted Japanese porno or what?
Check out the full lineup below.
