The Coachella Festival in Indio, CA has become of the most popular and coolest music festivals in the country and the 2011 line-up has just been announced. It features none other that the Triangle's own superstars and one of Triangle Music's favorite bands The Love Language.
This will be another big step for the band whose career is heading upward at a steady pace.
[UPDATE: I just noticed that Gayngs, which most of you know features local musicians from Megafaun and The Rosebuds, is tucked in the schedule too on Friday, April 15. Hopefully this time, no one will disappear with the group's gear (more on that HERE).]
The band will play on Saturday April 16 which will feature fellow Merge Records band Arcade Fire as a headliner. Other bands slated to play the festival include Kings of Leon, The Black Keys, Interpol, Brandon Flowers, Animal Collective, Mumford & Sons, Bright Eyes, Kanye West, The Strokes, Duran Duran, The National, PJ Harvey and many more. Check out the full list below.
