Coachella 2013: Your First Fake Lineup
This poster for the 2013 Coachella music festival is fake. Repeat: This poster for Coachella 2013 is FAKE. As in made up. Not real. A lie. But it's still awesome.
With fewer than 150 days until the first Coachella weekend, here's the music nerd equivalent of fantasy football: creating fantasy Coachella lineups. (Like robots and fake breasts, they keep getting more realistic.) We spotted this one on Consequence of Sound. It isn't as amazing as last year's hologram edition of Coachella, but it's actually a pretty great lineup.
Headliners include Nine Inch Nails, Daft Punk, and Atoms for Peace, but below that there's a fairly realistic mix of established artists (Fiona Apple, Sigur Ros, Queens of the Stone Age), indie rock royalty (Grizzly Bear, Metric, Passion Pit), hip-hop and soul (Frank Ocean, Big Boi, D'Angelo), up-and-comers (Haim, Imagine Dragons), throwback acts (Dinosaur Jr., Jawbreaker), and outliers (Black Moth Super Rainbow, Boris). When the real lineup comes out, we can compare the two for accuracy. What odds does Vegas have?
