Rumor Patrol: No Doubt Already “Locked In” For Coachella 2012?

Thank you to Joey for sending into BSO — another year, another Coachella rumor! According to the Consequence of Sound blog (which has been very reliable in the past), it seems as if No Doubt and Radiohead have already been booked as headliners at the popular northern California music festival next year, taking place over two weekends this time, April 13-15th and April 20-22nd. Nothing has been confirmed at this time, but it does make sense, since we are expecting the album to drop around March of next year. What does everyone think? That would be pretty amazing to see the band perform there! They have never played the festival but we know they are huge fans of it. We will keep you posted!

Consequence of Sound — Coachella 2012 takes place over the course of two weekends, April 13-15th and April 20-22nd, in Indio, California. A lineup announcement is likely months away, but music trade publication Hits Daily Double just dropped a rather noticeable bombshell at the end of their latest news report. We’ll just quote ‘em verbatim:

“…And though rock record revenues have diminished, the concert business, led by acts with multi-decade careers playing arenas and stadiums, has held steady and in some cases has actually increased. The same is true with high-profile festivals like Coachella, which has locked in No Doubt and Radiohead as two of next year’s headliners…”

We’ve reached out to the festival and the respective bands for comment and will let you know if they chose to respond.
