Coachella ’08 Update

It’s Official!

The official list has come out for Coachella 2008 in Indio, California. Get more info here.
Also in the news:

We’re not sure how accurate this is, but NME.com is reporting via Perez Hilton that the Coachella Music Festival will be making it’s way east this year.

“A source close” to the dyed-blonde gossip queen says: “In addition [to] having the festival outside of Palm Springs, like they do every year, this year they’re mounting an east coast version of Coachella in New York or possibly New Jersey. It should be in August.”

Update: All Points West!

According to Billboard, those behind the California showcase intend to put on a summer fest at Liberty State Park, just across the river from Lower Manhattan. This new event, however, will not carry the Coachella name. RollingStone.com reports that producers are already trying to land headliners, with Radiohead and Jack Johnson as the rumored frontrunners.

And according to our pal Schwenker, who is frequently wrong but reads NME enough that we believe him, the festival on the east coast is called All Points West. Ok then. Stupid name.
