Coachella 2012 Lineup Announced: Radiohead, Snoop Dogg among Headliners

Maury Phillips/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- The full lineup for the annual Coachella Music and Arts Festival set to take place in California in April has been announced, with bands Radiohead, The Black Keys, and rappers Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg slated to headline each night.

The festival, which brings together some of the top musical acts in the world at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California, just outside of Palm Springs, is also known for hosting the reunion of bands and musical outfits that have split up. This year’s festival is no exception, as post-hardcore band At the Drive-In, Swedish hardcore punk band Refused and 1980s alternative rock band fIREHOSE have all reformed to play the fest.


For the first time this year, the increasingly popular festival, which has become a worldwide destination event, will take place over two weekends: April 13-15 and April 20-22. Each weekend will have identical lineups, and currently only weekend passes are available, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Tickets for the festival, which takes place across five stages, have gone up in price since the first event in 1993. This year a three-day pass will cost approximately $315, with prices exceeding $1,300 for the full VIP experience.

Other bands set to take the stage at the festival in April include recent Record of the Year Grammy nominee Bon Iver, hit maker Florence + the Machine, and the recently reunited Britpop favorites Pulp, amongst dozens of other acts set to perform each day.
