Devo, Public Image Ltd., Echo & The Bunnymen form '80s-heavy lineup at Coachella
Public Image Ltd., Echo & The Bunnymen, The Specials, Faith No More, Devo and Gary Numan are all set to perform at this year's Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival, according to Slicing Up Eyeballs (seriously, one of the coolest sources for '80s music news online!)
Sadly, none of our '80s giants is a headliner (those coveted roles go to Jay-Z, Muse and Gorillaz -- BORING!), but it's still a lineup heavy in our favor. The festival, held April 16-18 in Indio, Calif., would also serve as the U.S debuts of the newly reformed lineups for three of those bands (PiL, Specials, Faith No More).
Three-day passes set for $269 -- yoinks! Hope your holiday bills are paid off -- and go on sale Friday. Check the festival's official website for more info. (I just know all my Devo friends on the left coast are going nuts over this news. I'm drooling over the idea of finally seeing Echo live. Not sure I can pull it off this year though.)
