All posts related to Coachella 2012 lineup on Guest of a Guest for Coachella 2012 lineup.
With the first weekend of Coachella in the books already, it might be understandable to think that the music community was going into a four-day hibernation to gear up for Friday. However, Goldenvoice is instead seizing the opportunity of having so many big-name bands sticking around for the week and throwing incredible shows all over the greater L.A. area, including possibly the greatest week of shows Pomona has ever seen. We posted a thorough breakdown of Coachella-related L.A. shows when they were announced last month, and it's even more relevant today. So don't wait until the weekend, Go See A Show! MORE>>
Coachella-goers: by now, hopefully, you've got yourself together. You're dressed, ready, you've studied the setlist, maybe you're even at the gates already. But, tragic as it is to admit, you can't be everywhere at once, so you've still got some tough choices to make. Well don't worry, we cover Coachella year-round around these parts, and that means we've already prepared a day-by-day breakdown of our top picks for unmissable shows– some headliners and some more obscure.

If you're waking up this morning at a campground, hotel or rented party house (lucky you!) in the Greater Palm Springs Area, then you woke up just in time. And if you're still in the car, you should probably step on the gas. Why? Because in less than an hour from when this sentence is currently being typed, the festival gates at the Empire Polo Club will be thrown open, with the very first act of the weekend (DJ Méa, in the Sahara tent) starting at 11:20 a.m. sharp. But, well, you'd already know that if you'd been looking at the set list, wouldn't you? MORE>>
Good news for all you Dad types who stockpile mounds of batteries and get to the airport three hours early, "just in case": Goldenvoice understands your neurotic need to pre-plan. That's why, hot on the heels of releasing the set list and times this morning, they've now released the official Venue Map this afternoon, complete with the locations of all the stages, beer gardens, ATMs, and everything else you need to make sure that your weekend in the desert is as smooth and productive as possible. We have the full map after the jump, so start planning your bathroom breaks now! More»
In typical Goldenvoice fashion, with less than 61 hours until the festival grounds open for Coachella 2012, they threw us a bone and posted the show set times for each of the three days of Weekend 1, indicating who will be playing which stages when. As with every year before set times are released, I've been getting a daily dose of anxiety over potential conflicting shows of the artists I most want to see. God forbid I'd have to choose between Pulp and M83... I mean, no question Pulp would win but I've been listening to Hurry Up, We're Dreaming a lot recently in anticipation of that show so missing it would be très lame and sad. But you'll sleep better tonight knowing I've gotten some relief now that the weekend show schedule is out because I know you were starting to get concerned about me. More»
Some good news for those of you unable to partake in either of the two back-to-back Coachella weekends next month. As of Monday, the festival's producer Goldenvoice unveiled a fully-loaded schedule of shows in the L.A. area in the days surrounding the desert music festival. They've deemed the two-week live music extravaganza "Goldenvoice Presents April 2012." Whether you're getting in on Coachella action next month or have opted out this year, if you're into this year's lineup at all, you're probably going to want to take a look at the artists they've scheduled to perform in these supplemental shows since most of them are playing the festival this year.

Goldenvoice isn't exactly going easy on us with the Day 3 lineup this year, having put together a collection of highly energetic, much anticipated acts that will challenge you to make the most of your time in the desert. Check out our preview (go HERE and HERE for our Day 1 and Day 2 analysis, respectively) of the acts we're souped for on the final day of Coachella 2012. MORE>>
In a sense, the third and final day of Coachella is the trickiest for both the schedulers and the festival-goers themselves. With two straight days of desert heat, nonstop music, killer parties, and whatever, um, extracurricular activities you may be getting into under the belt, it may feel like a challenge to maintain a third full of day of music. But Goldenvoice isn't exactly going easy on us with the Day 3 lineup this year, having put together a collection of highly energetic, much anticipated acts that will challenge you to get your weight up for one last day and make the most of your time in the desert.

Coachella is one day closer than it was yesterday! And as we continue on with our day-by-day look at some of the bands we're most excited to see (go HERE if you missed our look at Day 1), it's hard to think that anything happening between now and then could possibly live up to the awesomeness.

Holy crap, you guys, Coachella is one day closer than it was yesterday! Okay, maybe counting down to April one day at a time is slightly extreme, but as we continue on with our day-by-day look at some of the bands we're most excited to see (go HERE if you missed our look at Day 1), it's hard to think that anything happening between now and then could possibly live up to the awesomeness.
