Coachella: The Rumormongering Rages On!

Kevin Bronson at the Los Angeles Times has a sort of update on the heatstroke-inducing desert jam that is Coachella Festival, the lineup of which is being announced next week. According to Bronson, not only is the above poster totally off, My Bloody Valentine will not be one of the “surprising veteran act[s]” on the show’s roster–but who cares, because apparently Portishead is going to be there! Maybe I should brave the desert, although I’d need to stock up on some SPF 150 and a gigantic floppy hat before doing so. A list of bands who are, so far, totally definitely 100% rumored to be appearing according to the Internets and blog boards and such after the jump. Can you say “yay, ’90s”?

Death Cab for Cutie The Breeders Justice Jens Lekman Junkie XL The Verve UNKLE Cold War Kids Chromeo Autolux Spiritualized Portishead VHS or Beta Dan Deacon Brett Dennen The Cinematic Orchestra Battles Kid Sister Crystal Castles Louis XIV

Also, some commenter at Brooklyn Vegan is claiming that Led Zeppelin is playing but how many times have we heard that old song and dance lately.
