A false poster for this year’s Coachella Music and Art’s festival was thrown into the comments of a Stereogum thread this morning, and the creators of the work in question did a great job giving every hipster and hopeful on the planet an instant boner. According to the fake poster, the headliners were The White Stripes, Daft Punk and David Bowie, with additional support from a monster cast of big shots like Mastodon, Muse, Kings of Leon, Sigur Ros, Snow Patrol and others. The planners over at Coachella immediately spoke out against the fake posters, saying that the real line-up will be announced some time in January, with some internet sources claiming we’ll hear the full bill as early as later today. In other places on the web, we’re hearing additional reports of the planners denying Radiohead, The Smiths and David Bowie.
The more that I’m looking into it, it seems that there’s probably a fake template being passed around the web, as I just found another flier. When push comes to shove, I’m guessing that the first place you’ll see the official bands list would be on the Coachella website. Until then, keep making fake posters to keep yourself busy.
