Lineup for Coachella 2016 Announced

via Facebook
As we previously reported, Guns N' Roses will be headlining the festival this year. However, the complete list of this year's musical participants has just been announced, and she's a doozy.

Along with GN'R, the annual festival held in Indio, California will feature such acts as Rancid, LCD Soundsystem, the 1975, Run the Jewels, Grimes, A$AP Rocky, The Kills, Savages, Lord Huron, Calvin Harris, The Damned, Ice Cube, Gary Clark Jr., Deerhunter, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Major Lazer, Beach House, PRAYERS, Pete Yorn, BADBADNOTGOOD, Rae Sremmurd, Health, Mavis Staples, Ellie Goulding and Joey Bada$$, to name a few.

The festival will take place over two weekends, April 15-17 and April 22-24, and will also include large-scale art installations by Jimenez Lai, Alexandre Arrechea, Date Farmers, Phillip K. Smith III, Roberto Behar and Rosario Marquadt, among others.

For those who just can't muster a fuck to give about the lineup or are not gonna spend the requisite cash to get to the hot-and-dry-as-fuck-California desert, there's always the resulting hipster-bashing videos of made-up band names that the 20-somethings are too afraid to admit they've never heard of and the viral hunt for the underbutt to ease your not-doing-drugs-with-Adam Brody woes. 

However, if you are interested in going out west where the wind blows tall, tickets can be got here on January 6.
