Alt In Our Stars Podcast: 2015 Music Festival Preview -- Coachella, Bonnaroo & More!

For one thing, we're very excited to see Florence + the Machine play at festivals this year.

Is March 16 too soon for a 2015 festival preview? Of course not! SXSW is already upon us and Coachella will be here in less than a month. Who cares if Lollapalooza hasn't even announced its lineup yet? Host Chris Payne sat down with Billboard writers/festival experts Andrew Hampp and Jason Lipshutz for some insider talk on the 2015 music festival game.

What makes a band want to play a certain festival over others? Why do we see the same bands headlining festivals over and over? What bands do we wish would see play more festivals (hello, Paramore!)? What would happen if Bonnaroo booked Kelly Clarkson?
