Now that the rumor mill has mercifully come to a screeching halt with last week's release of the Coachella 2013 lineup, it's time to stop talking hypotheticals and holograms and discuss the living, breathing artists set play this year. Like many out there who were under the impression The Rolling Stones were playing, our jaws are still halfway to the floor in utter confusion by the headliner choices (uh, the Stone Roses? Someone lost a bet. That's the only way that makes sense.). Despite that highly perturbing part of the bill, there are plenty of other performers we are very stoked about on the lineup. Let's start with our picks for the Day 1 artists we're most excited to see on Friday, April 12th and 19th at Coachella 2013.
