Ever wonder who’s atop Coachella’s wishlist? As Billboard reports, festival organizers answered that question during a press conference aboard the inaugural Coachella Cruise, specifically naming David Bowie, Talking Heads, The Smiths, and Iron Maiden.

In regards to The Smiths, Coachella founder Paul Tollett added that they “try every year” to book them, despite the band turning down the festival’s previous offer of $5 million.

During the press conference, Tollett also let it slip that Father John Misty would be performing at Coachella proper in 2013. The former Fleet Foxes drummer marks the sixth act confirmed for the festival, joining Rodriguez, Paul Kalkbrenner, Kill the Noise, Hardwell, and Bingo Players.
