When Arcade Fire announced their "Reflektor" tour in November, some noted the band's routing neglected shows during Coachella's announced weekends and had sheduled no dates for L.A., which is roughly two-hours away from the festival site.

Britsh rock band Muse recently released their third live album, "Live at Rome Olympic Stadium," which also came out on DVD this past November.

Last year's Coachella, promoted by Goldenvoice/AEG Live, won Top Festival honors at Billboard's Touring Awards grossing more than $67 million dollars over six sold-out nights.

Over the course of its 14-year run, Coachella has hosted numerous memorable artist reunions, from the Pixies in 2004 to Rage Against The Machine in 2007 to Pavement in 2010. Last year's headliners included the Stone Roses and Blur, who made Coachella's two weekends their only U.S. dates of their recent reunion runs.
