Coldplay, NIN, Arcade Fire, Weezer to Play Coachella 2005

Published: 2005-02-01
Yesterday the official line-up for the 2005 Coachella Valley Music Festival was finally announced to an eagerly awaiting music world. The two day concert is packing some serious star power this year, with Coldplay and Nine Inch Nails headlining the event. This year Coachella will be played out on the weekend of April 30th/May 1st in the town of Indio, California, as always.

Tickets for Coachella 2005 will go on sale this Saturday, February 5th at noon PST through Ticketmaster.com for a cool $80US (about $100 CAD) for one day, or $150US (about $185 CAD) for both; onsite camping tickets will be sold separately, also through Ticketmaster.

Coachella is arguably the best music festival on this continent, and as such, every year hundreds of Canadians make the trek southwards to pitch a tent in Indio. Likewise, there are always a few of Canada's best acts featured on the bill each year. For Coachella 2005 our country will be represented by the likes of Buck 65, K-Os, Sloan, Sixtoo, Tegan and Sara, and the biggest buzz band of the moment, Montreal's The Arcade Fire.
