2013 Coachella Fest Boasts Red Hot Chili Peppers, How to Destroy Angels, Social Distortion + More

Mary Ouellette, (x2) / Spencer Kaufman, Loudwire After months of anticipation and many fictitious rumors, the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival has revealed its official 2013 lineup. The diverse group of performers run the creative gamut from rock to indie to electronica and more, all while mixing the best of new artists on the rise with veteran artists in their prime. Coachella has become such a hot commodity in the music community that it’s now offered twice during back to back weekends in the spring. Set for April 12-14 and April 19-21 in Indio, Calif., the 2013 rock contingent includes Red Hot Chili Peppers serving as the headliner on the Sunday of each weekend. After a bit of a break, the Chili Peppers returned in 2011 with their latest disc ‘I’m With You,’ their first since 2006’s ‘Stadium Arcadium.’ Coachella usually offers up a handful of surprises in the form of reunions or first time performances and the 2013 lineup lives up to that reputation. Nine Inch Nails visionary Trent Reznor and his new project How To Destroy Angels will make their live debut this year, playing on both Fridays and the Violent Femmes, who haven’t played together live since 2007, are penciled in for the two Saturday lineups. Other rock acts that made the expansive bill include Social Distortion , Puscifer , Ghost and the Descendents. In addition, other headliners and highlighted appearances include Blur, Stone Roses, Phoenix, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Lou Reed, New Order and the reunion of the Postal Service. Passes for the monster event go on sale Tuesday, Jan. 29. Visit for ticketing info and the full detailed lineup. ? [button href=”” title=”Check Out the Must-See Rock Concerts of 2013″ align=”center”]
