Coachella, the all-encompassing desert music festival that draws hipsters from far and wide to Indio, Calif., near Palm Springs, has announced its lineup for 2014. While the sprawling, eclectic schedule often forces festival-goers to choose between favourites, Arcade Fire might prove to be a unanimous must-see as the last-night headliner. As organizers have done in recent years, Coachella will take place twice, on two consecutive weekends (April 11-13 and 18-20), with all the same performers. Some random, subjective highlights include: a long-awaited OutKast reunion, Beck, Neutral Milk Hotel, Neko Case, Haim, Lorde, Girl Talk, Pharrell Williams and many, many other bands in small type featured on the official festival poster.
