Headlining performances from Radiohead on Saturday and The Cure on Sunday
plus performances from more than 60 acts including
The Pixies, Kraftwerk and The Flaming Lips

Described as "The Best American Festival" (Rolling Stone), "probably the
best festival in the world" (England's NME) and "the most significant annual
pop event in the country" (Los Angeles Times), the Coachella Valley Music
and Arts Festival returns for its fifth year to Empire Polo Field in Indio,
CA Saturday, May 1 and Sunday, May 2.
An unparalleled cutting-edge musicalexperience in a peaceful and breathtakingly
beautiful setting that last yearattracted 68,000 music fans, the
Goldenvoice-promoted extravaganza is beingheadlined by Radiohead (Saturday)
and The Cure (Sunday) and will include performances from
The Pixies, Kraftwerk and The Flaming Lips.
Of last year's festival--which featured headliners Beastie Boys and the
Red Hot Chili Peppers-- ROLLING STONE noted:
"Coachella remains astonishingly comfy and civilized...,"
while Steve Sutherland of the U.K.'s NME lauded:
"One day all festivals will be as cool as Coachella. California's Coachella
festival ranks as one of the best in the world...it has the line-up, the
guest list and the weather other festivals would kill for" (May 10, 2003).
Writing in the Los Angeles Times (April 24, 2003), Robert Hilburn noted:
"Think of this pop-rock showcase as the Kentucky Derby of rock--the
place where the world's most promising new bands and a sampling of worthy old
ones come together in a lovely outdoor setting to test their thoroughbred
credentials...the most significant annual pop event in the country..."
Fans traveling from around the country and overseas will be able to
experience a truly diverse line-up of music in four musical areas spread out
over 78 acres amid gorgeous desert sunsets, towering
palm trees and mountainous views.
Tickets for the festival go on sale February 14th, 2004 at Noon. Tickets

Forget the semantics The Flaming Lips, The Cure and the Pixies. You can't beat that with a stick.

everyone has been in shock about how the Pixies arent headlining but it really doesnt suprise me. As far as we, fans of indie/pixies-esque music, are concerned, the Pixies are godly and can't be touched but you have to remember, the Pixies were never a huge commercial success like Radiohead is. Personally, I just think it kicks ass that they're playing again.

I'm definately heading out to LA for this, especially seeing as The Cure and The Lips have confirmed. What a setlist, I get to see the greatest two bands in the world, Pixies and The Cure and then also get to see class acts such as The Head, The Lips and The Werk. Cracking..... anyone up for meeting up??

Who's the man that won't cop out when there's danger all about?
