Coachella Adds Bands, DJs After Winehouse Drops Out

Devendra Banhart, the Orb, Chemical Bros., Murder City Devils and Etienne de Crecy have been added to the lineup of the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival after one of its marquee artists withdrew from the bill. As previously reported, troubled British singer Amy Winehouse pulled out of the festival after an assault charge in Britain made it unlikely she would get the necessary visa to perform.

Flying Lotus, Public Enemy producers the Bomb Squad, Kode 9, and Daedulus are among the DJs who will perform in the Dome, Coachella founder and booker Paul Tollet announced yesterday (Mar. 9) in coachelladigital.com, a new webzine produced by the festival.

The tenth annual Coachella festival is to be held April 17-19 at Empire Polo Field in Indio, Calif. Paul McCartney, the Killers and the Cure lead the bill, while My Bloody Valentine, Morrissey, Leonard Cohen and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs are among the more than 100 acts previously announced.
