Coachella ready to rock the desert

Music fest returns to Indio this Friday through Sunday

Now in its 11th year, the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival returns to its sun-baked home turf, the Empire Polo Club in Indio, Calif., Friday through Sunday.

Coachella ’10 will see headline performances by powerhouses from the world of rap (Jay-Z), rock (Muse, Them Crooked Vultures) and dance (LCD Soundsystem, Tiesto), plus the usual smattering of reunion gigs (Pavement, Faith No More, the Specials, Public Image Ltd).

The Goldenvoice-promoted event has a tough act to follow: Last year’s fest, headlined by Paul McCartney, was the second largest in Coachella’s history with 166,000 attendees.
