Coachella lineup announced



COLDPLAY, NINE INCH NAILS, NEW ORDER and WEEZER are set to top the bill at the sixth Californian COACHELLA FESTIVAL. A host of British acts including Razorlight , Kasabian, The Futureheads, Bloc Party, Keane, Snow Patrol, The Chemical Brothers, Doves, Prodigy, Katie Melua, Roots Manuva, British Sea Power and Stereophonics will also play over the two-day event, which runs over the weekend of April 30-May 1. The festival will again take place at the Empire Polo Field in Indio, a desert hot spot two hours outside of LA. After festival bosses brought a reunited Stooges to the line up in 2003 and helped get the Pixies back together for their 2004 show, Coachella 2005 will follow the tradition of bringing back reformed groups by hosting Bauhaus and Cocteau Twins in this year’s line-up.
