Christmas came early, so to speak, for Coachella lovers this year! The 2012 lineup for the annual music festival, which takes place in Indio, California each April, is typically revealed in mid-to-late January. But the mods behind Coachella’s official Twitter must have been too impatient to wait, as they tweeted out the official lineup poster for this year’s fest. And they found some amazing acts who were available to play two consecutive weekends in a row!
As far as Idolator-friendly acts on the bill, David Guetta will play Saturday, as well as Miike Snow, Scissor Sisters’ rap amiga Azealia Banks, Kanye’s Grammy-nominated pals in Bon Iver, Feist and producer/DJ/Madonna collaborator Martin Solveig.
Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg will co-headline Sunday night. Florence + The Machine, La Roux and The Weeknd are also playing that day, as well as Justice, Popping Up artist Lissie, Rihanna’s “We Found Love” collaborator Calvin Harris and mashup DJ king Girl Talk. (If you’re in the mood to get even more excited, check out our list of must-see acts at Coachella 2012.)
Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival will take place April 13-15 and April 20-22. Tickets go on sale Friday, January 13 at 10 a.m PST on the Coachella website.
