Coachella is back, for two desert weekends this year, April 13 to 15 and April 20 to 22. Our massive team of writers and photographers will be covering everything from the performances to the fashion trends to the drug-induced tomfoolery. More than 140 artists are performing -- we've got the full list below. But, you may be wondering, who the hell are some of these people? To help you out, we've got stories on many of them culled from our sister Village Voice Media papers around the country. You'll learn about that time Flying Lotus pretended to be a UCLA physics major, Seun Kuti's first Minneapolis performance as an 8-year-old, even the mysteries of Merrill Garbus and why Chuck Klosterman can't handle her. Dig in!
