Coachella 2012 takes place over the course of two weekends, April 13-15th and April 20-22nd, in Indio, California. A lineup announcement is likely months away, but music trade publication Hits Daily Double just dropped a rather noticeable bombshell at the end of their latest news report. We’ll just quote ’em verbatim:
“…And though rock record revenues have diminished, the concert business, led by acts with multi-decade careers playing arenas and stadiums, has held steady and in some cases has actually increased. The same is true with high-profile festivals like Coachella, which has locked in No Doubt and Radiohead as two of next year’s headliners…
It should be noted that Hits Daily Double also reported that The Rolling Stones were “very close to finalizing a deal” to headline Coachella 2010.
We’ve reached out to the festival and the respective bands for comment and will let you know if they choose to respond.
