McCartney, The Cure and The Ting Tings on Board for Coachella


And you thought Paul McCartney’s appearance on the Colbert Report was cool.

Just days ago, the former Beatle officially became a part of this year’s Grammy lineup. Now the 66-year-old is scheduled to perform at his first US concert festival ever.

In addition to McCartney, nearly 130 more artists are slated to play at this spring’s Coachella event. Assuming she is able to make it into the country, Amy Winehouse is expected to make her first appearance on this side of the pond in three years. (Her recent Grammys performance was done via satellite.) Meanwhile, the other acts include The Killers, The Cure, Morrissey, Leonard Cohen, Public Enemy, The Tings Tings, My Bloody Valentine, Okkervil River, James Morrison, Lupe Fiasco, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Franz Ferdinand and Superchunk. (A full list can be found here.)

For a limited time, the tickets - which went on sale today - can be purchased on a layaway basis. Through Feb. 28, cash-strapped music lovers can pay 50% of a whole weekend pass now with up to two more installments by April.

The 10th Annual Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival runs April 17-19 in Indio, Calif.
