Coachella Music Festival: A Playlist of Past Headliners

April 12th, 2010
Posted in Lifestyle By

Coachella is probably third in a list of “Reasons an Individual Would Willingly Go into a Desert”– first being a trip to the actual Egyptian pyramids, and the second being tripping in Las Vegas.

There is no easy way to get to the Coachella Music Festival camping grounds. This weekend, the population of Indio, California will triple as Coachella festival-goers set out to voluntarily camp where temperatures average around 100 degrees and virtually no shade exists. Why subject yourself to this level of discomfort? Well, perhaps because Jay-Z, Thom Yorke, Muse, and Gorillaz are headlining.

Here’s a playlist to help you reminisce about acts from Coachella’s past five years, and keep you sane company on the two and a half hour drive to Indio from LAX!
