Could Daft Punk, Phoenix and Yeah Yeah Yeahs return to the desert for Coachella 2013?
That’s what a screenshot circulating online Monday seems to indicate: Continue Reading
The Rolling Stones may be playing Coachella, if you can believe rumors generated by Rolling Stone magazine.
The publication’s online site reported early this morning that two new dates appeared under the tour section of the legendary band’s mobile app. The first was an April 12th stop in Indio, listed as “Coachella 2013.”
An e-mail query to Coachella founder Paul Tollett seeking confirmation or denial was not immediately returned.
As January — the month when Coachella has released its lineup for at least the past five years — approaches, there’s more and more talk about who will play the 2013 fest.
Now, we have a full-fledged fake lineup poster:
The Web is buzzing about another band that’s leaving some key weekend dates in April open.
A Stagecoach 2013 poster that lists Toby Keith, Lady Antebellum and the Zac Brown Band as headliners is circulating on Twitter, and we’ll find out if it’s the real deal at 8 a.m.

‘Tis the season for music festival rumors.
A fake Stagecoach poster is already making the rounds, and today, Sesar Orozco fired up the Coachella lineup speculation with a prediction for 2013:

We asked for more lineup predictions and hopes, and here’s who else is on the collective Coachella wishlist:
It appears the poster was posted on Facebook by a fan asking if this was the real deal. It seems, as other posters have said, to be too good to be true. If true, it would be a dream line up … except for the fact it’s missing Little Big Town and The Farm, Inc. Sugarland should have received higher billing, but I won’t complain … as long as they’re in!
What do you think? Too good to be true?
Goldenvoice is touting Eric Church’s upcoming performances – at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on Nov. 4 and the Honda Center on Nov. 8 – on its Stagecoach Festival Facebook page. The recent post has some fans speculating if this is a “hint” that Church – who is currently making the rounds around the country on his Blood, Sweat, & Beers tour – might be in the Stagecoach 2013 line up.
Here’s what some people are saying about the CMA nominee:
What do you think?!
Could a Coachella cruise soon set sail? That’s what the Los Angeles Times is hearing from people who it says are “familiar with Goldenvoice’s plans but not willing to go on record.”
UPDATE: The L.A. Times heard right. S.S. Coachella sets sail in December.
There’s plenty of speculation about what Goldenvoice will announce tonight at 6 p.m. MyCoachella colleagues Bruce Fessier and Xochitl Peña found fest fans wondering if the big news would be a third Coachella weekend, a new Coachella venue, a new festival in Irvine or a Rolling Stones show.
But Todd Martens reports on the L.A. Times’ music blog that it’s actually a Florida-based cruise that could “expand the Coachella brand” as soon as December.
The cruise rumor caught me by surprise, but as initially off-putting as the idea of a desert music fest going nautical is, it’s really not all that far-fetched.
Martens notes that music cruises are officially a thing, and he lists cruises for such varied sets as the EDM crowd and Kid Rock fans.
Even Positive, Encouraging K-LOVE has had Christian contemporary artists performing on the high seas for 10 years(!) now.
Goldenvoice has been characteristically mum ahead of tonight’s announcement. President Paul Tollett didn’t respond to Bruce’s email Monday, but he did say earlier that a national announcement would be coming this week.
