The official 2011 Coachella lineup was released Tuesday night, following a wild string of online predictions and fake posters that began infiltrating the web during the first month of 2011.
Rumors have been circulating for months; in fact, many speculations began the day after Coachella 2010. There was talk of Daft Punk, The White Striples, Coldplay…even the Rolling Stones were rumored to have been offered $5 million to be headliners for the festival. And while we won’t be seeing Mick Jagger strutting the stage this year, the organizers of Coachella have promised us a pretty sweet lineup for 2011, with welcome surprises like Erykah Badu, Lauryn Hill, and Mumford & Sons.
