Coachella 2011 Lineup Announcement

Three days of non-stop jams, unrelenting heat and terrible cell-phone reception can only mean one thing: Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival — the event of the year for any music fan.

After months of anticipation, the lineup for the  2011 festival — to take place April 15, 16 and 17 — was finally announced on Tuesday night. While it doesn’t include rumored artists like the Beastie Boys and Daft Punk, it does include modern mainstays Kings Of Leon, Arcade Fire, Kanye West and the Strokes as headliners, along with artists as diverse as Lauryn Hill and Animal Collective rounding out the bill.

Three-day passes for the festival are available for $269 each (plus fees). You can find more information on Coachella’s website here.

Will you be making the trek from San Diego to Indio? Is Kanye enough to make you brave the shower-less weekend, or will you be staying behind to study for midterms?

We won’t try to convince you either way; the lineup (listed below, in alphabetical order by day) speaks for itself.

Jan 22 Update: Car camping passes have already sold out.
