Welcome to the Jungle: Coachella 2016 Lineup Announced

Once again, no Bowie.

Much to the sure chagrin of festival organizers, two-thirds of Coachella’s headliners were out of the bag before the New Year (LCD Soundsystem n’ Guns N’ Roses), leaving one mysterious top-tier name to be revealed today as…Calvin Harris?

Oh, well. Maybe the next time David Bowie has an album out they can convince him by banning all lollipops within the grounds.

As always, the real value of Coachella comes in the lower tiers anyway, and this year is no exception. Sufjan Stevens, Savages, Grimes, Courtney Barnett, Deerhunter, Lush, Beach House, and Kamasi Washington are just some of the other heavy hitting supplemental acts.
