Once again, it’s that time of year when we all retweet and re-post Coachella fliers on Facebook and Twitter. The line up was announced on January 9, featuring big artists such as Dr. Dre & Snoop Dog, Radiohead, the Black Keys, Justice, and many more! The concert will be held 2 consecutive weekends, from April 13-15, & 20-22. Check out the flier below!

Even though Coachella sold out early this year, there’s still a reason to head out to the desert this weekend. The parties, once a supplement to the Coachella experience, have now become a comparable (if not better) alternative to the festival. This year over a dozen parties have been announced in the desert, many of which are free and have special performances from artists with time slots at the festival. As we did last year, here’s a list we’ve compiled of Coachella 2011 parties. Here we go:
Performances from: Theophilus London, Blaqstarr, Them Jeans, Dave P & Sammy Slice, Fat Lip (Live), The Champ, Dam-Funk, Active Child, and others…
That’s right. Filter’s once again gearing up to the 9th annual kick-off party on Thursday, 4/15 where everyone who’s anyone will gather to toast the festival days to come. This year, they’ve teamed up with T-Mobile, Jansport and a few other sponsors to bring you a three day event.
