2010 Coachella April 16-18: Thom Yorke, Gorrilaz, LCD Soundsystem, Vampire Weekend & 125 more acts!

January 19, 2010

2010 Coachella Line UP is here!

Over 130 acts are scheduled for this year’s 11th Annual Coachella Art And Music Festival Friday, April 16, Saturday, April 17 and Sunday, April 18 at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, CA

Pavement, Radiohead’s Thom Yorke, Vampire Weekend, Them Crooked Vultures, LCD Soundsystem, Phoenix, Tiësto, Faith No More, Deadmau5, David Guetta, MGMT and Public Image Limited headline. Some of my must see acts, including many of those listed above,  include The Specials, Grizzly Bear, Dead Weather,  Little Dragon, Spoon, and Sly and the Family Stone. Wow.

For the first time, 2010 Coachella will expand camping options from tents only to allow cars to camp next to tents. Folks like us with VW campers and other kinds of vans will be able to park and sleep in a 10 x 30 space in the tent camping area (away from the RVs and their noisy generators!) Coachella will allow, also for the first time, in-and-out privileges.

In 2002 and 2003, we attended Coachella and stayed in Desert Hot Springs–2003 was our honeymoon! We loved soaking our tired bodies in the soothing hot water after a long day and night of dancing under the desert sky. And we loved the quiet there after a day of so much stimulus–in addition to music, Coachella celebrates art and the Do Lab usually has something going on on-site. Every year since we attended, we’ve talked and planned about going back. This year, with the new camping plans and in and out priviledeges, we just might be able to do it. Plus this year, Coachella occurs April 16-18–a little earlier, a little cooler AND it’s the weekend of our wedding anniversary. As fun as it would be to bring the small boy (who loves Vampire Weekend, the Specials, and the Gorrilaz), going to Coachella would be a great way to spend our 6th wedding anniversary (without him!).

While there are plenty of acts on my radar that I want to see, one experience that perhaps I treasure most about Coachella is the exposure to so many different musical experiences, discovering new loves and fascinations.

Tickets for COACHELLA go on sale Friday, January 22 at 10:00 AM at all Ticketmaster locations and Three-day weekend passes are $269.00, plus surcharges.  More details on layaway, camping options and up-to-the minute information, can be found at  If you can’t afford a ticket–or maybe you already spent your money on your Burning Man ticket last week–here’s info on a work exchange program.
