Coachella Lineup Announced: Prepare Yourself For The Anticlimax
The long-awaited announcement regarding this year’s Coachella Festival has finally taken place, and apparently the big name the organizers got this year was … Roger Waters? Who will be recreating Dark Side Of The Moon on the festival’s main stage? Yeah, really. (What was that I said about festivals being totally over in ’08 again?) Tickets go on sale this Friday at 10 a.m. PT; other names on the 125-act bill, via the Los Angeles Times‘ Soundboard blog and URB, after the jump. (For those of you who think that Roger Waters is a little too old for Coachella: Don’t worry, Love and Rockets are on the bill, too!)
