The lineup for the eleventh edition of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival – which happens over the weekend of Friday, April 16, 17 & 18 – has officially arrived. And it’s about as hot as the sometimes triple-digit temperatures the Southern California festival is known for.
Coachella Valley Arts & Music is an insane festival full of cultural, arts and sounds from some of today’s super music acts. This year’s line-up’ll be even more insane with Hov on the marquee. Shawn [Jay-Z] Carter has had some recent success with his latest NYC concrete-jungle single of Empire State Of Mind featuring the R&B sensation songstress – Alicia Keys – which has become the “new gotham city anthem”.
Headliners Shawn [Jay-Z] Carter, Thom Yorke and the recently reunited indie-rock demigods Pavement join a host of indie clan of all-stars kids – MGMT, Muse, Vampire Weekend, Phoenix, Passion Pit, Dirty Projectors, Grizzly Bear, Florence and the Machine – as well as formative Brit icons: Public Image Limited, the Specials, Echo & the Bunnymen, Gary Numan, and assorted rarely-seen-live legends – Sly and the Family Stone, De La Soul, Grace Jones, Faith No More.

David Slade directs a powerful, human trafficking a la music video tagged with Some Things Cost More Than You Realise and underscores it with The Killers – Goodnight, Travel Well – from their third studio album – Day & Age. The PSA music video is the second collaboration between UNICEF, MTV EXIT (End Exploitation & Trafficking) and the US Agency for International Development, the first launched in 2008 featuring Radiohead’s All I Need.
We are deeply shocked and appalled that women and children are forced into such exploitative situations, said a spokesperson for The Killers. We hope that through MTV’s efforts, and this powerful video, millions of people across the world learn about this tragic form of modern-day slavery. The video’s creative concept was developed by the Australian advertising agency CRC, with support from the UK music consultancy Huge Music.
