Coachella at Empire Polo Grounds

April 11, 2013

How would you book a festival that, regardless of your decisions, was sure to sell out? Would you give the people what they want or give them what they need? Always the diplomats, those who slotted the 2013 lineup for the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival opted for a little of both. In 2013 more than in recent years, the lineup does seem more prescriptive. The big names include funk-punk (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Brit-pop (Blur), post-rave dance rock (Stone Roses), post-indie French rock (Phoenix) and New York City post-disco rock (Yeah Yeah Yeahs). Empire Polo Grounds, 81-800 Avenue 51, Indio. Noon Fri.-Sun. Coachella.com.
