There are 94 days until weekend 1 of Coachella 2013 kicks off, but who will take the stages?
There’s still no artist line-up, but it’s never happened this early.
That’s much to the chagrin of the dozens of people who post on the Coachella Facebook page each day, begging for at least an announcement of when the announcement will come.

The latest leak adds Missy Elliott, Lana Del Rey, Boys Noize, Fiona Apple, The Prodigy, Passion Pit and The xx to the already leaked (and assumed) headliners The Rolling Stones. A key difference: This lineup moves the Stones to a Sunday performance — earlier leaks had them taking the stage on Friday.

Coachella 2013, by the way, is set for April 12-14 and April 19-21 at the Empire Polo Club in Indio. Last year’s official lineup was released by Goldenvoice on Jan. 9, so hang in there.
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:
