The Coachella 2014 lineup is here! And it has the usual mix of bright spots and meh-worthy acts. For the first time since 2007, OutKast's André 3000 and Big Boi will be performing together again, headlining the Friday night shows. Headlining duties on the other two days will be filled by Arcade Fire on Saturday, and Muse on Sunday. Neither band is a stranger to Coachella: The Canadian indie-rock stalwarts had a headlining spot in 2011, while Muse performed in 2010.
OutKast isn't the only recently reunited group taking the stage in Indio: After coming together at Riot Fest last summer, the Replacements—or, specifically, original frontman Paul Westerberg and bassist Tommy Stinson, along with two new members—will regroup on Friday. A rescusitated Neutral Milk Hotel will also play on Sunday night.
Other big names on the lineup include Queens of the Stone Age, Neko Case, Beck, Motörhead and Pet Shop Boys. Additionally, newer acts that made a splash in 2013—including HAIM, Disclosure and Lorde—have received top billing.
As in years past, the festival will happen over two weekends: April 11–13 and April 18–20. Tickets go on sale Friday, January 10, and passes start at $375. (If you can't foresee making the trip, remember: Bands that play Coachella often book stops in New York City in between weekends—witness Pulp in 2012.)
