Kanye West - Coachella 2011 Announce Lineup Featuring Kanye And The Strokes

COACHELLA 2011 will be headlined by KANYE WEST, THE STROKES, ARCADE FIRE and KINGS OF LEON after the festival announced its official line-up last night (19th January 2011). Guitar bands will dominate the stages at the Californian festival this summer, with the likes of DURAN DURAN, PJ HARVEY, THE BLACK KEYS, INTERPOL and BRIGHT EYES also being confirmed.
Dance fans won't be put off however, as heavyweights such as THE CHEMICAL BROTHERS will also be performing, as will DJ SASHA, FEDDE LE GRAND, BLOODY BEETROOTS and CRYSTAL CASTLES. However, some fans were left disappointed by the absence of French dance duo DAFT PUNK, who were heavily tipped to headline the festival. Singer KATY PERRY took to her Twitter page to air her frustration, saying, "Dear @coachella WTF happened to DAFT PUNK?! I wanted to get my TRON ON! Needless to say, I'll still be there w/glowstixxxs" (sic). This year's line-up also features a number of reforming bands, such as DEATH FROM ABOVE 1979 and the MICK JONES fronted band BIG AUDIO DYNAMITE. The festival will take place at the Empire Polo Fields in Indio, California, between the 15th and 17th of April 2011.
Last year's festival was headlined by rapper JAY-Z, British rock band MUSE, and DAMON ALBARN's 'GORILLAZ'.
