Here's Everything You Need To Know About Coachella 2016

The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival has announced the lineup for 2016. The festival is to be held on consecutive weekends - April 15-17 and April 22-24 - in Indio, California. As previously reported by us, the reformed LCD Soundsystem and Guns N' Roses will headline, accompanied by a slew of electronic artists, indie rockers and other buzz bands.

Filling out this year's lineup are Sufjan Stevens, M83, Grimes, Run the Jewels, Ice Cube, Jack Ü, Sia, Major Lazer, Death Grips, Sia, Flume, Calvin Harris, Beach House, A$AP Rocky, Chvrches, Purity Ring, Disclosure, Courtney Barnett, Vince Staples, Rhye, Bat for Lashes, Savages, Deafheaven, Deerhunter, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Hudson Mohawke, Ellie Goulding, HEALTH, Rae Sremmurd, Kamasi Washington, the Last Shadow Puppets, Skepta, Christine and the Queens, Mavis Staples, Lush, AlunaGeorge, SOPHIE, Ex Hex, DJ Koze, Sheer Mag, Autolux, Melody's Echo Chamber, Girlpool, Underworld, the Kills, Chris Stapleton, Zedd, Rancid, Baauer, and more. Find the full lineup below, and ticket info here.
Most fascinating about this year's festival  is what's arguably the biggest rock reunion of all time: Guns N' Roses. Their headlining slot on Saturday is bound to come off quite strangely after a day of A$ap Rocky, Chvrches, Grimes and other dance and many other indie acts. The truth is, GNR stands out like a sore thumb,as the only high-level rock band on the bill. Plus there's the looming  question of whether or not Axl can even pull off the reunion with any sense of justice to the original glory days - because time and again we've been shown plenty of reasons to doubt that Mr. Rose can pull it off. 

What do you think of this year's line up ? Let us know in the comments section below !

When did you launch 804 Street Media & what was the catalyst for you launching 804 Street Media ?

"The official brand evolved into a business around 2013, but the grind to put the 804 (Richmond. Virginia) on the map started back in the 1990’s. Everything started with hip-hop. In 1997 I had a rap group here in Richmond. Virginia was on the rise, we were actually the only rap group from Richmond to share a stage with Nas. This was around the time "It Was Written" dropped.
