I won't say that I'm disappointed in Tuesday's announcement. I'm just - meh. I know you usually save some surprise announcements for the last minute.
I missed you last year because I was down under and I heard it was terribly overcrowded so I didn't feel left out for not going. I can never seem to make it in even years anyway. All the more reason to get excited about a 4th time appearance in 2011, especially now that I don't have to fly from the east coast to get there. It's an easy drive.
Does this mean I'm getting old? Ack!
But it's such a great value for three days of music. And I already have hotel reservations that I secured last August. I do wanna see the Black Keys. Robyn! Brandon Flowers solo (the Killers headlined Coachella in 2009 and I was actually very impressed). Cut Copy. Marina and the Diamonds. Klaxons. Clare Maguire. Mumford and Sons. Empire of the Sun. Paul van Dyk. Swell Season isn't totally broken up yet, though they are breaking up and maybe this is the last time I would ever see them? I will cry. Elbow. the Radio Dept. Kanye? Hmm... Duran Duran. I do need to see the National. Best Coast. Ellie Goulding.
Of course I'm mega in love with Arcade Fire and having seen them twice at Coachella already, I know how phenomenal they are in this setting. Still pivotal memories in my musical history. Outdoor stage, beautiful sunset, mountains, palm trees, cool breeze, Wake Up drifting through the air, easily securing AF's spot as most memorable above all over bands that weekend in 2005.
So yes, I think I shall go?
