The Coachella Music Festival in the US announced its line up this morning with various British bands such as Florence and the Machine, Madness, Noel Gallagher, Madness and others confirmed to play on the bill in April. The biggest surprise though was the addition of three bands who have reformed this week. LA’s At The Drive In are officially ‘operational’ so says their twitter account this morning. Mike Watt’s Firehose have been added to the bill but not officially mentioned their new plans and Refused are back and are excited to ‘see you in the pit’ from a statement over night.
The festival will take place over 2 weekends in April (13th-15th and 20th-22th) in Indio, California. Fingers crossed these bands all have plans to visit the UK for Reading, Sonisphere or Download this summer. Watch this space.
