In anticipation of arguably the most highly anticipated music event of the year, I’ve been thinking a lot about who is most likely to grace Coachella with their presence in April of next year. Of course rumors about Daft Punk and Arcade Fire have been circulating for quite some time, which if both turn out to be true, I can die happy.
Though what I am most curious about are both the newcomers who will be appearing at Coachella for the first time, as well as the heavier-hitters who have played before and are speculated to return next year. Alas, included below is a preliminary list of who I predict will be making a stop in the desert this spring.
Broken Social Scene
The Chemical Brothers
Empire of the Sun
Simian Mobile Disco
Okay, so that’s all I got for now. I made these predictions based off of a) who’s currently touring or b) who’s just started touring again after a semi-prolonged hiatus, c) who wasn’t at Coachella last year [they tend to be good about asking different artists to return year over year], and d) who has yet to make an appearance at Coachella. Fingers crossed this holds some weight!! And please refrain from scoffing at me if you believe it’s bad luck to make these predictions in the first place. This is meant to be fun, so let’s see if I turn out to be right!
