Radiohead and the Pixies will perform on the first day of the fifth Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival.

As expected, organizers have officially confirmed that Radiohead and the Pixies will perform on the first day of the fifth Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival, to be held May 1-2 in Indio, Calif. Pioneering German rock act Kraftwerk will also play on May 1. The lineup will also feature Air, Prefuse 73, the Thrills and Electric Six, plus the newly added Sahara Hotnights and the (International) Noise Conspiracy.

The Pixies will be playing their first show since abruptly disbanding in 1993. It is unknown if all four original members-guitarists Frank Black and Joey Santiago, bassist Kim Deal and drummer David Lovering-will be present, or if the show will dovetail into a tour or new recording project.
