Coachella 2013 Headliners Announced

Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival (Coachella for short) is returning in April with a killer lineup. Headlining are The Stone Roses, Blur, Phoenix and Red Hot Chili Peppers.
 
Madchester pioneers 'The Stone Roses' and Brit pop legends 'Blur' will headline the Friday of the festival, with artists such as Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Johnny Marr, Lou Reed, Modest Mouse, Jake Bugg, Alt-J and Palma Violets.
 
Taking on the second night are alternative rock band 'Phoenix' (although they are from France; not the American city). The XX, New Order, Two Door Cinema Club, Foals, Ben Howard, Biffy Clyro and more artists will also perform thoroughout the Saturday.
 
Finally on the final night Californian rock Gods 'Red Hot Chili Peppers' will take to the stage. I am a massive fan of this band, so I'm really excited to see the setlist. Also on the Sunday you can catch sets from: Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Vampire Weekend, Tame Impala, The Lumineers, The Gaslight Anthem, Jessie Ware, Deap Vally and James McCartney.
 

However, despite the stellar lineup, complaints of confusion have started to flood in from American festival fans who are unsure as to who the Friday headliners are. A blog has been set up www.whoarethestoneroses.tumblr.com which documents screenshots of twitter users taking to the site to vent their thoughts. It seems as if 'The Rolling Stones' were expected instead of 'The Stone Roses' who aren't as famous over there.
 
All I can say is roll on April!
