Indio, California must be beaming right about now. Coachella Music Festival, situated in the sunny SoCal desert, has just released it’s 2015 lineup. The three-day fest will anchor its setlist with top bills of AC/DC, Jack White, and Drake.
Other major acts include Tame Impala, The Weeknd, Alesso, Alabama Shakes, Nero, Axwel Ingrosso, alt-J, Ratatat, Hozier, Florence and the Machine, Kaskade, David Guetta, and St. Vincent among others.
Weekend 1 takes place from April 10 – 12, and Weekend 2 wraps up the festival from April 17-19.
Ticket sales go live tomorrow.
We finally have the second major music festival lineup of 2014 by way of Bonnaroo. Top billings include Elton John, Kanye West and Jack White. Other notables include Vampire Weekend, The Avett Brothers, Phoenix, Skrillex, Kaskade, Wiz Khalifa, Disclosure, Broken Bells, Janelle Monae and Pusha T.
The lineup stacks up pretty nicely with Coachella’s, announced last month.
Which would you rather go to?

Sunday at Lollapalooza marked one of the first times I felt old at a concert setting. I mean, sure, festivals like this are typically filled with the young and restless, but this time shit got generational on me.
I was a face in the crowd in the middle of the Macklemore & Ryan Lewis set, my first this day, when the Seattle emcee probed his fans with a question. “How many of you guys were born in the 70s?” A small murmur responded at best. Then he asked, “How many of you guys were born in the 80s?” A decent cheer followed, including myself (I’m 23, by the way.) Finally, Macklemore beckoned, “how many of you guys were born in the 90s?” And the whole crowd erupted.
Well, at least I can say I’m still hip, right?
Check out the sounds from a few of the performances I got the chance to see on Sunday below, as well as some visuals of Jack White absolutely killin’ it in front the Chicago skyline and a good chunk of its population.
