The 2013 Coachella Lineup Has Been Announced And The Headliner Is…
The Coachella Music & Arts Festival, the three-day festival known for showcasing both well known and emerging talent across all genres, finally announces their 2013 lineup, and the headliner will be none other than the Red Hot Chili Peppers. The show will also feature Wu-Tang Clan, the xx, Major Lazer, 2 Chainz, Pusha T, Action Bronson, Jurassic 5, Passion Pit, TNGHT, Jesse Ware and more.
The event, which takes place in Indio, CA, has grown consistently since its inception in 1999 and has, in recent years had a large hip-hop presence. A year ago, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg headlined the show, shocking fans both on-site and those watching a live stream via YouTube with a hologram of the late 2Pac. In 2011 and 2010, respectively, both Kanye West and Jay-Z headlined the show.
This year there really only seems to be a handful of rappers set to perform over the three days, mostly listed above. Daft Punk, who had long been rumored to be this year’s headliner, is also noticeably absent from the lineup. Check out the full list below.
