I like to gaze at lineups that I may never have a chance of seeing.
This photo turned out to be super small so just click it if you want to see the enlarged version at their Facebook page.
For the full lineup and to see which artists are performing on which weekends, visit the official website of the music festival.
Coachella is the music festival that defined music festival fashion. Even though it is two weekends this year, we are only covering our favorite looks from just one weekend. I scanned several of my favorite fashion blogs to pick up these looks and here are the ones that stood out the most:
I did a poor job of streaming Coachella this year and missed every single performance. I’m very grateful that some of my favorite artists on Twitter are reposting some of their performances though so that I can play catch up. This Disclosure x Sam Smith performance of “Latch” is a song that I never get tired of.
When I learned that the partial lineup would be released this morning, I had my laptop in… lap at 8:55 AM ready to go and not willing to miss a thing. The partial lineup isn’t the entirety, but it’s enough to hold us over and give us a tease of what’s to come. By the looks of it, if these are the names they are releasing now, then the rest of the lineup will surely not disappoint. I saw both Chromeo and Matt and Kim at the former Street Scene San Diego Festival years ago and have been itching to catch a performance of theirs ever since. I also was able to catch Beat Connection at Bumbershoot this year as a last minute filler to their lineup and am so excited about all of their new material.
Not bad Capitol Hill… but don’t make us wait too much longer for the rest. We’ll be waiting.
Wow. No words. What an amazing lineup! I’m super excited to be attending my first Outside Lands festival this year!
God, please bless me with a sacred press pass :)
After three years, the Bumbershoot organizers are giving fans what they really want – for the Main Stage to move out of the Key Arena and back into Memorial Stadium. Growing up, I’ve been a long time fan of the music festival and I’ve stuck by them because of how memorable the event always made my summer, but using the Key Arena as the Main Stage was not ideal.
The lines were endless and wrapped around the Seattle Center until you were dizzy. You always felt like you were walking into a sinking dark hole to see a concert when you were really supposed to be at a music festival. Lastly, it was just plain dangerous. Kids are crazy these days and I’ll never forget the time I nearly died at M83 when teenagers were jumping over the seats to try and get to the floor. I’m happy to say that I won’t have to do that again this year.
Apparently the reason for the move is that the WNBA will be holding their finals at the Key Arena on the first day of the festival – Saturday, August 30th. Bummer. Looks like it’s good news for us though! However, don’t expect the Main Stage to look like how it did 3 years ago. Apparently there will be two stages set up in the area with headliners and openers performing in between the headliners’ sets.
We are very excited about this news.
Similar to CMJ, I always get a little excited when I hear that some of my favorite local Seattle bands are headed off to SXSW.
Also – shameless plug, one of my favorite Seattle bands, The Flavr Blue is performing at Neumos for their SXSW send-off and if you’re not doing anything tomorrow night, then you should definitely be there. It’s only $5 and it will pretty much be the best time of your life. It’s not sold out yet. I wish I were home.
But wait…where’s Outkast?!
All of your favorite acts will once again be taking over Manchester, Tennessee from June 12-15. The lineup is stacked as it always is – and can I just say that I would pay good money to see Lionel Richie and Lauryn Hill. #throwback.
