Preview: Coachella 2012

The Californian music festival behemoth Coachella revealed their final line-up on Monday. Instead of taking place on just one weekend and risk the wrath of people shut out of tickets, the festival chose to take an unusual (while dubiously opportunistic) tack and have decided to repeat the festival line-up for two weekends in a row (13-15 April and 20-22 April). Headliners will be the Black Keys (Fridays the 13th and 20th; pictured above), Radiohead (Saturdays the 14th and 21st) and Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg (Sundays the 15th and 22nd).

But maybe you’re not in it for the headliners. (I wouldn’t be.) Let’s see who else is on the list. Hot ticket bands Bon Iver, M83, the Horrors, along with the reunited Pulp, as well as American indie favourites Girls and Other Lives and Manchester legends James are set to appear on Fridays. Canadians Godspeed You! Black Emperor, an influence of countless bands we’ve featured here on TGTF, is scheduled to play on Saturdays, as are Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Manchester Orchestra and UK acts as varied as Laura Marling, the Big Pink and We Were Promised Jetpacks. The Sundays will see performances by the recently reformed Texas band At the Drive-In, heavy hitters Florence and the Machine and Justice, along with UK bands criminally in small print of Metronomy, Wild Beasts and Fanfarlo. (I think you can tell why I’m less than impressed!)

Tickets are on sale now for the second weekend (the first weekend is sold out). General tickets to the second weekend are $285 (approximately £184 at the time of this writing), VIP tickets are $665 (£429); both prices do not include additional shipping and service charges. For more information on tickets, visit the official Coachella Web site. For the complete line-up, you can read the official Coachella line-up poster here.

 

Preview: Snowbombing 2012

To some people, snow not sun plus lots of sport is the way forward for music festivals. For those hearty souls, Snowbombing Festival in Austria is the festival of choice. Taking place next year on the 9th of April to the 14th of April 2012, the event will occur for the eighth time at the Tyrolean resort of Mayrhofen this year. Headlining this year will be the notorious Snopp Dogg. Other acts high up on the bill include Example, DJ Shadow, Groove Armada (DJ set) and the Vaccines. See the entire line-up on the official Web site here.

While the ticket buying process has been made very simple by the Snowbombing admin (the event wristband is included in the price of the accommodation you choose), the options are so numerous, you better head on over to the official Snowbombing page to decide for yourself what amenities are best for you.

 

This week’s Gonzo – Plan B and Pigeon Detectives talk new albums, Daisy Lowe and dog stop by

Tonight’s episode of MTV Gonzo is just chock full of goodies! Plan B stops by to talk about his forthcoming album ‘The Ballad of Belmarsh’, to be released later this year, and what’s been going on in his life since his his award winning appearance and infamous performance at this year’s BRITS. Model Daisy Lowe (pictured above) pops in, little dog in tow, for a chat with Alexa on music and Doctor Who. She likes the Big Apple but was reportedly quoted as saying, “I would move to New York, but I can’t bare putting my dog through the plane journey!” (Frankly, anyone who’s been on a plane as of late can surely commiserate. I know I can.) West Yorkshire band the Pigeon Detectives, just coming out of the dark and not having been seen in a long while (probably since their 2008 album ‘Emergency’) are in the Gonzo studio to talk up their hotly-anticipated third album, ‘Up, Guards and at Em’!’

From America comes the Man himself, Snoop Dogg, ready to have an exclusive convo with Alex about his 11th studio album ‘Dogumentary’. The Horrors‘s Faris Badwan has a new band (name unknown at this point…?) and they play for us at the Vatican. (Um…I guess we’re just going to have to watch and see it to believe it.) And Jon Fratelli, who we’ve written about quite a bit on here at TGTF, will be playing his new solo work. Not enough for you? Punk band Flats make their first TV appearance. It all happens tonight on Gonzo.

MTV Gonzo airs tonight (Friday) at 7 PM on MTV Music, with a repeat at 8 PM on MTV Rocks.
