    The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival -- or Coachella -- is a three-day music and arts fest held at the Empire Polo Fields in Indio, Calif.

    Personally, I've been attending the fest (annually) since 1999, the inaugural year of the event, when Beck, Morrissey, Tool and Rage Against the Machine performed.

    Every year, I liken the Coachella lineup announcement to Christmas as a kid. You have your wish list, hopes are high, and rumors circulate as you anxiously await the big day. This year, Santa delivered the goods. Here are some of the highlights:

    • Friday, April 16: Jay-Z, LCD Soundsystem, Them Crooked Vultures, Vampire Weekend, PiL, Grizzly Bear, and Echo and the Bunnymen
    • Saturday, April 17: Muse, Faith No More, MGMT, the Dead Weather, Devo, the Xx and Tiesto
    • Sunday, April 18: Gorillaz, Pavement, Thom Yorke, Phoenix, Spoon, De la Soul, Sly and the Family Stone, and Sunny Day Real Estate
