Coachella 2012 runs April 13-15 AND April 20-22, 2012, which means it’s only 265 AND 272 days away. Given that lineup speculation is a year-around sport, our first batch of the 2012 fake lineup posters has hit the web.
Popular themes thus far: BjÃ¶rk, Radiohead, and Daft Punk headlining, a Beastie Boys comeback, Pulp finally coming to America, performances by Bon Iver, Justice, How to Destory Angels, Feist, TV on the Radio, The Avalanches, Modest Mouse, Fleet Foxes, M83, and Flying Lotus, and some rather wishful thinking reunions (At the Drive-In, The Replacements, and, uh, The Velvet Underground.)
