Coachella — the launching pad of a concertgoer’s summer, the trend setter for all things music, and the upper echelon of any weekend extravaganza that deems itself a festival. For the last eleven Aprils, the Indio, Calif.-based event has mustered together lineups featuring the most elite headliners, sought after reunions, and buzzworthy up and comers, and 2011 will be different.

Arcade Fire, Kanye West, Kings of Leon, and The Strokes will head this year’s edition, set to take place from April 15-17. Other confirmed acts include The Chemical Brothers, PJ Harvey, Lauryn Hill, Duran Duran, Bright Eyes, The Black Keys, Animal Collective, The National, Interpol, Big Audio Dynamite, Death From Above 1979, and Killers frontman Brandon Flowers.
