Lineup is out. I have notes

That's right, the Coachella lineup was released about 20 minutes ago, so like the good little obsessive fangirl I am, I have THINGS TO SAY

For those of you wondering how my wishlist panned out (aw, thanks!), I made it easy for you:

YES:
  • Bat for Lashes
  • Yeasayer
  • Grizzly Bear
  • Grimes
  • Janelle Monae
  • the xx
  • Paul Oakenfold
  • Sigur Ros
NO:
  • Garbage -- No! This was a serious missed opportunity, I think. They just reunited and released an album; this should have been a no-brainer.
  • Friendly Fires
  • Glitch Mob
  • HAIM -- Another huge missed opportunity. An indie group out of Los Angeles that is starting to get huge buzz should have been an easy get for Coachella.
  • Gabriel and Dresden
  • Royksopp
  • Massive Attack
  • School of Seven Bells -- This wouldn't have been an obvious choice, I don't think, but they had a new album out this year...
  • Dash Berlin
  • The Knife/Fever Ray -- I would have called this a long shot, except that Primavera Sound festival just announced their lineup and The Knife was on it! So I actually started to get my hopes up that this was actually a possibility for Coachella. Bummin' now.
  • James Lavelle
  • Pendulum
  • Monst
  • Burial
  • The Antlers -- I also think this should have happened, since they had a new album too.
  • Ladytron
  • and, of course, though it will never happen... Daft Punk -- It didn't happen, so no shit
Also excited about: Bassnectar, Metric, Four Tet, Phoenix, New Order, Moby (!!), Tame Impala, Dead Can Dance, La Roux, Adrian Lux.
