With just over three days until launch, officials for Indio CA’s Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival have exposed the event’s timetable, firmly organizing the plethora of performing acts snugly into the restraints of a clock. Sunblock-caked and wisely hydrating fans now know to head over to the Coachella Stage at 7:40 P.M. Friday to catch a performance from recently reunited shoegazers, the Jesus and Mary Chain, possible slide in a Sonic Youth induced Daydream at the Outdoor Stage at 9:55 P.M., then dash back to catch a Volta-charged performance from Icelandic chanteuse Björk.
Saturday, attendees should set their wristwatches for 5:25 P.M. to snag a surely flutin’ gig from Swedes Peter Bjorn and John before migrating over to the Outdoor Stage for a solid slew of gigs, including performances from the Decemberists, Ghostface Killah, and Blonde Redhead. Finally, Sunday will offer the chatter amassing moment Che Guevara T-shirt sporting rockers have been waiting for, the Rage Against the Machine reunion, commencing on the main stage at 10:40 P.M.
Also, you don’t have to be at Coachella to enjoy these sets. You can hang out with our pals at the AT&T blue room all weekend long for live webcasts from the Coachella stages. While the complete AT&T blue room webcast schedule is not yet confirmed, you can stay tuned to SPIN.com for AT&T blue room schedules posted each morning during Coachella ’07.
