This year's Coachella Music Festival will be headlined by Jay-Z on Friday, Muse on Saturday and the Gorillaz on Sunday (April 16-18).
Sunday sounds like a good day - Sly and the Family Stone are also on the schedule. Though I'd rather cozy up to Prince's 2008 Coachella performance on DVD.
3-day passes ($269) go on sale this Friday at 10am. What do you guys think? Anyone on the lineup you're dying to see? -Dr.FB
Amy Winehouse has had to cancel her Coachella appearance due to legal issues she's facing back home in England for assaulting a fan back in September 2008, according to this EW.com report:
Troubled singer Amy Winehouse will not be playing California's Coachella music festival next month because she faces assault charges in England for allegedly attacking a fan last September. According to People, Winehouse's rep Chris Goodman has denied that U.S. authorities declined to issue her a work visa, saying only, "She cannot go [to Coachella] because of current legal issues." Last year, Winehouse did not attend the Grammy awards because the U.S. government would not issue her a visa. By the time that decision was reversed, it was too late.
