It’s official: the lineup for Coachella 2010 is out.
While we love Jay-Z, we’re not so sure we like the potential underlying implications of someone so mainstream playing Coachella, which has up until now — even with the big headliners they’ve had — remained indie at heart. Given the rest of the lineup, though, we don’t think this signals a shift, just a blip on the radar.
Who are we excited about? The xx, of course, Vampire Weekend, P.i.L., Passion Pit, Erol Alkan, Grace Jones, LCD Soundsystem, MGMT, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Band of Skulls, Thome Yorke, Phoenix, Orbital, Gary Numan, Miike Snow, The Big Pink, Florence and The Machine, Plastikman, Delphic, and John Waters!
