The Rolling Stones lead singer Mick Jagger swears he has not been approached to play Coachella, according to a recent report from Rolling Stone Magazine.
The legendary band has been rumored as a headliner since Coachella was briefly listed Dec. 14 as an upcoming performance on the band’s mobile phone app. That calendar item was quickly deleted.

Goldenvoice is such a tease.
The makers behind the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival posted a simple New Year’s greeting on their Facebook page on Thursday afternoon: “Happy New Years! We’re excited, hope you are too!”
But they just had to add a photo that got people talking.
The photo that accompanies the post is some sort of round object on what what appears to be the Empire Polo Club in Indio, home to the Coachella festival.

It isn’t even 2013 yet, but purported Coachella 2013 lineups are already sprouting up all over the Internet. On Wednesday, a special Boxing Day edition of the Coachella 2013 lineup hit and started making speedy viral progress via Twitter, Facebook, tumblr and all other socially-inclined hubs.
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.
What do you think of the lineup?
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.
