I have to say, I’m pretty impressed with the headliners in this lineup and that isn’t typically the case with Coachella. Radiohead, Beyoncé, Kendrick Lamar, Bon Iver, New Order, and Future Islands are some of my favorite trending artists–New Order being more classic than trendy. Alas, as usual, the smaller artists are lacking on this lineup. Coachella seems to pay a lot of attention (and money) for their bigger name artists but doesn’t really nail it with smaller-scale musicians. However, I will give a special shout out to Jagwar Ma (pictured), who I discovered at Sound on Sound Fest this year.
Anyway, tickets are on sale and with those headliners, shit, I’d say it’s worth it.
