Coachella ’14: The Replacements, Muse, Arcade Fire, Pharrell, and … Let’s See … Oh Yeah, OUTKAST

Coachella Coachella

As our man Rembert Browne already told you people, Outkast shouldn’t be truly considered “confirmed” for Coachella until it’s actually onstage at Coachella. But now we’ve got the second-best thing: Following news breaks and Instagram innuendo and weeks of nonstop breathless anticipation comes the official Coachella lineup and, right there, on the first day’s headline spot, are those two dope boys in a Cadillac. Damn.

The rest of the lineup, as always, offers you a chance to argue with people: From tried-and-true headliners (Arcade Fire, Muse, Beck) to ghosts of EDM past and future (Fatboy Slim, Skrillex, Calvin Harris), from your old favorites (Motörhead, Superchunk, Neutral Milk Hotel) to your new obsessions (Lorde, Chance the Rapper, Waxahatchee), and including whatever else you’d want to obsess over right now (ahem, more reunion shows from the Replacements!), there’s plenty to keep you occupied for at least the next 17 minutes. Go ahead. Pore it over. Then start texting your buddies, “COaCHELLA???! Should WEE?!!”

Also, one more time, and in the middle we stay calm we just drop BOMBS

And the rest of the lineup, in case you find the iconic “whole bunch of tiny names” poster hard to read:
