Coachella Lineup Announced, Part Of Sales To Go To Charity
The lineup for this year’s Coachella Music Festival was just announced!
The weekend festival takes place in Indio, California, at the Empire Polo Fields from April 15 to 17, and headlining this year are heavy hitters like Arcade Fire, The Strokes, Kings Of Leon, and Kanye West who is, admittedly, not green.
Also set to play?
The announcement of band lineups has been getting mixed reviews, with some fans glowing over the headliners, while others, like Katy Perry, are disappointed that a rumor of French dance duo Daft Punk coming on board isn’t coming to fruition.
“Dear @coachella WTF happened to DAFT PUNK?! I wanted to get my TRON ON! Needless to say, I’ll still be there w/glowstixxxs,” the singer tweeted.
Granted, a lot of these artists aren’t exactly our idea of eco-friendly (I’m looking at you, Kanye), but the good news is that $3 from every ticket (a weekend pass will cost you around $300) will go to charity! Woo hoo!
But to be specific, it will go to the Indio Youth Task Force, a community project working toward creating positive opportunities for the youth of Indio. They do this with monthly teen and youth dances, annual basketball games, and the establishment of Kids Clubs’, and a Boys & Girls Club & Boxing Club eight years in the making.
Tickets to the music fest aren’t on-sale yet, but you can check their event page for updates, lodging info, and a full list of bands that are expected to participate.
