So the Coachella line up is now 3 days long. So I thought it would be useful to have a listing of all of the artists who will perform at this years festival. And since everyone has a Myspace page these days I thought why not have links to every one of their pages. That way you can get a preview of what all the artists are all about. Aside from the big names, Coachella is known for having bands on their line up before the hype. I saw The Mars Volta in a tent at 1:00 in the afternoon a few years back. So click away at the links, find your must see bands, and enjoy!

I would highly suggest checking out all the bands, some of the ones you have never heard of will surprise you. You might be kicking yourself for missing a show by an artist you may not have known about at the time.
Note* I will do a similar list for SXSW whenever they decide we are worthy of the list.
