For everything that makes a Coachella lineup great, 2010 was perfect. Huge name headliners, killer supporting acts, hot DJs, future greats and reunions worth talking about. Headliners included Muse (fresh off the release of Resistance), Gorillaz, Vampire Weekend, The Dead Weather, the hotly anticipated Faith No More reunion, supergroup Them Crooked Vultures, other supergroup Atoms for Peace and Hove himself, Jay-Z. 2010’s lineup was Coachella at its most inspired, diverse and influential.
Reunited and it feels so good: Faith No More, The Specials, Echo & the Bunnymen, Pavement, Sly Stone, Sunny Day Real Estate, Yo La Tengo, Public Image Ltd.
Future BFD (Big Fucking Deal): Florence & the Machine, Sia, The Avett Brothers
