A rolling stone?

There is reason to believe the Rolling Stones may headline Coachella 2013. There is also reason to believe that Santa Claus is real. We're waiting on confirmation of both, though it doesn't get more official than NORAD

Rolling Stone magazine reports that heavy hints have been dropped in support of the headlining theory (noting it would be their first U.S. festival since 1969's Altamont).

The band's mobile app is a good example of one such "hint." It previously displayed an April 12 tour stop in Indio, CA called "Coachella 2013." 

The date was subsequently wiped from the app, but not before many screenshots were saved into the Internet forever.


Coachella 2013 fake posters appear with first fantasy lineup

Like a terrible mirage, fake Coachella lineup posters have started to appear, bringing with them years of thirsty pleas for the same bands to play our local desert.

For now let's not worry about the S.S. Coachella boat people. They have their own thing going.

In this version of Indio's possible future reality, Atoms for Peace replace the Radiohead battle cry, and Daft Punk is exactly where you left them.
