While the official lineup is yet to be revealed, the LA Times just announced that Rage Against the Machine, which played the first Coachella in 1999, will reunite for the 3-day extravaganza April 27-29. Rage is said to be joined by the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Bjork (!), Arcade Fire, Arctic Monkeys, Interpol, Willie Nelosn, the Roots, Crowded House, the Decembrists, Sonic Youth, Air, DJ Tiesto and more.
Fanning the rumormill flames that the Police will reunite at Coachella was the announcement a couple of days ago of pre-sale tickets with the password "Roxanne." Those tickets, which are currently selling for $199 (after these sell out, tickets will likely go for $250).
UPDATE: I got the official lineup this morning (been crazy with other stuff all day). While the "big 3" are confirmed headliners, it's likely the Police are not playing Coachella. However, there's still a lot of talk they're playing Bonnaroo in the middle of a 60-date tour. In any case, here's the current Coachella lineup:
Tiesto, The Arcade Fire, Interpol, Manu Chao, Willie Nelson, Air, Happy Mondays, Decemberists, Faithless, Gotan Project, The Good, The Bad and The Queen, Paul Van Dyk, Arctic Monkeys (more after jump...)
