Several "reputable" music outlets have confirmed that LCD soundsystem and 90% original lineup GnR will Headline Coachella 2016. The lineup appears to be dropping specifically to coincide with an announcement about GnR from Axl on Jimmy Kimmel on Tuesday (jan 5 2016).

Buying information

Tickets are on sale THIS WEDNESDAY, not THIS FRIDAY. I recommend creating your front gate ticket buying account now. Note: this is diffrent than the coachella.com account, which ties your wristband to your email address.

What the gently caress is "Despacio"?

Despacio is the name of James murphy David Dewaele, and Stephen dewaele (AKA 2manyDJs AKA Soulwax) custom designed sound system for playing records live. Here is a roundtable from the three about the setup

Is Calvin Harris <that> popular? Honest question.

E: OK, so he's pretty big in the UK and the highest-paid DJ in the world. Just had to double-take at his name as top billing for a day.

Clearly Daft Punk will come out during LCD Sound System.

A real question: has there ever been a band going two years in a row like Run The Jewels? Not that I'm complaining, they are fun as hell.

It seems like the lineup consists mostly of bands that I decided to skip in previous years, but now they are a line or two higher. There better be some gems in that undercard.

Yeah, I wasn't super impressed with last year's lineup, but LCD and Axl/Slash alone would probably be worth the admission.

An exceptional fake "leaked" poster put a lot of bands that matched a lot of actual lineup earlier today. I suspect they got scared it might leak beforehand and pushed it out today (GV employees were only told leaving the office today it was going live).

Things like 2manydjs and despacio (james murphy weird REAL sound system) were not like something you'd think about.

Wait so these are sold the week before Coachella? And there's a limited supply? So if they sell out, I missed my chance to go/am gonna buy off craigslist for a huge markup? I dunno, it sounds kinda cool to not pay now for a festival in April, but that 1000 passes worries me. Any word as to whether that usually sells out?

And you have to have the wristband physically put on you at the location, a week before the festival? Yikes, not sure if my job would be okay with me wearing it all week.

I'm gonna have to research this more, but thanks a ton for the info.

Well use it as a plan B, and I think they're saying the wednesday BEFORE that weekends' respective festival. (They start on a friday so i'd make sense you'd wear it for two days, not for seven.)

Literally the only reason I'd go to this is for Despacio, but it might be enough because fuuuuuuuuck do I want to experience that soundsystem.

lot has changed at Coachella since I last saw Calvin Harris there and he played the small tent (Gobi?). He's plenty entertaining and I'd prefer him on the mainstage over say Tiesto or some other mega-dj.

A little mixed feelings about this one. They did a great job getting a LOT of good acts, but not a whole lot of my favorites which usually happens. Still pumped, I just moved out of California and am already missing the sun.

Glad Silversun Pickups are coming back, their 2009 set ruled. Underworld and ZHU should be insanely cool.

I'm not really into live music due to the crowds, but man I would absolutely love to see Axl Rose and Slash on stage together. However, it would cost a ton of money and there's a decent chance that one of the two, probably Axl, won't even show up. Too risky. I hope they will stream it on youtube again.

Axl's voice the past 5 years has been total poo poo - if he comes out at the first Coachella show sounding like rear end, there's no way the band sells out a stadium tour like they're planning on doing

This is his last shot at being relevant again

If you're planning to see Guns, be prepared to wait at least 2-3 hours past their scheduled time.

Actually that's part of what broke up the band in the first place - Axl being late drove Duff to drink to the point where his Pancreas exploded. Expect a more timely band.

Weekend 2 is always the better weekend. I'm sure one of these years i'll have to do a single year AND be weekend 2 but the advantages are you don't have to wait on bands getting their poo poo together (drake, modest mouse) or the pretty fuckers "just being 4 da experience".

Either way, it's going to be fun. Last year was my first time. I don't mind going Weekend Two since all my friends switched over. I'm excited, this line up was definitely better then last years, and I had a huge blast last year!

unrestrained rhythms.

Weekend 2 here -- will be my 5th Coachella. The lineup is one of the best I've seen. I honestly can't wait for the LCD Soundsystem reunion (saw one of their last shows at Coachella 2010 and it was incredible), and I've also been meaning to catch Death Grips live for some time now.

Also, yeah, weekend 2 just seems more low-key/chill/about the music, in my opinion. My friends and I always prefer weekend 2.
