Coachella 2011 Lineup: Mala, Kode9, Nosaj Thing, Mount Kimbie, Lorn +

It’s about that time again. California’s Coachella Festival announced its 2011 lineup (kicking off the year’s Summer festival announcements) and the bill is quite massive! Of course the lineup is fraught with  indie rock bands, from Arcade Fire and Interpol to The Strokes and Kings of Leon, but they didn’t forget to include some hip hop and R&B superstars including producer/rapper Kanye West, singer Erykah Badu, and Lauryn Hill. Dance music luminaries such as The Chemical Brothers and Paul Van Dyk will also make their appearance. But what we’re most excited about is the fresh crop of innovative electronic music producers and musicians on the bill, including burgeoning dubstep and future bass artists who rarely play shows in the States. So we’ve compiled a series of videos from these artists; check out sounds from the likes of Nosaj Thing, Mount Kimbie, SBTRKT, Kyle Hall, Roska, Mala, Kode9, and more below. I know we’re in the thick of winter, but start warming up; start planning your trip now.

The poster below has all the relevant information, but check Coachella for full details. The festival will take place at the Empire Polo Field in Indio, California from Friday, April 15 to Sunday, April 17.

Win Two Tickets to the Coachella Music Festival through Radical Publishing’s “Where in the World is Radical?” Contest

February 14, 2011, Los Angeles, CA – Radical Publishing is happy to announce the launch of their most recent contest, “Where in the World is Radical?”
The contest will run from February 11 to March 15, 2011.

The winner of the contest will be flown from wherever they live in the United States to Indio, California, where they will receive two tickets to the Coachella music festival (April 15 – 17, 2011) and a 3-night stay at a local hotel, all courtesy of Radical.

To enter, visit the contest page and upload a photo of yourself holding a Radical book or the provided Radical printout in a location that shows where in the United States you live. Note that this does not necessarily mean you need to take a photo in front of a national landmark—submissions can be as simple as a photo taken next to a street sign. Think creatively, though— photos will be judged on the basis of originality.

Once you’ve got your photo, upload it to the contest page and ask your friends to vote— the more people you get involved, the better your chances at winning. Radical will select the winner from the three photos that receive the most votes, ultimately choosing a single winner based on the creativity of their submission.

Get creative, tell your friends, and enter Radical’s contest for a chance to win a pair of tickets to see your favorite musicians play at Coachella. For more detailed contest information, visit the following URL:

Good luck to all entrants!
