Check out the complete schedule below.
Fun fact: Nine out of every 10 good bands on the planet are playing Coachella 2013, and we're asking some of our favorites to tell us who they're most looking forward to checking out this weekend. (And, you know, the one after that.) Among the groups nice enough to hit us with a "Can't Miss" list was Mona, the tatted-up, unabashedly pro-pomade Nashville-via-Ohio rockers whose retro-rock sound has already made them stars in the U.K.
In the lead-up to Coachella 2013, we're asking some of our favorite participating artists to share with us the acts they're most looking forward to catching at this year's festival. Among those goodly enough to pass along a "Can't Miss" list: Deap Vally, two fiercely rocking L.A. ladies who recently chatted us up about their fondness for crocheting, somewhat Black Keysian guitar-and-drum attack and admirable feminist mission.
Coachella 2013 is fast approaching, and since you already know why we're excited, we thought we'd check in with some of our favorite Indio-bound artists and see who they're looking forward to seeing. We were honored to hear back from the Three O'Clock, the legendary band that both coined the phrase "Paisley Underground" and exemplified the sound of that early-'80s SoCal scene, playing a jangly, swirly, folky, melody-drenched hybrid of '60s psychedelic rock, '70s power-pop and '80s post-punk. After 25 years apart, the group is prepping a 20-track retrospective, 'The Hidden World Revealed,' and reuniting for a handful of West Coast shows -- as well as an appearance tonight (April 10) on 'Conan.'

The annual Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, Calif., can be a grand time -- but a grand time is certainly not guaranteed. Considering the massive costs involved, the huge claustrophobia-inducing crowds, the potentially stifling heat, the redundancy of the expanded schedule and the overall vibe -- which some might describe as obnoxious -- of the thing, it sometimes seems like it's just not worth the hassle. Especially, it could be argued, in t2013, as this year's lineup looks a little short on exclusive appearances.

Although Daft Punk weren't among the numerous acts confirmed to perform at Coachella 2013 when the lineup was announced back in January, their record label has dropped hints that they'll be the surprise headliner at this year’s fest. Execs at Universal Music Group, EMI and Sony Entertainment – the umbrella company for Daft Punk’s label, Columbia Records – made a post on the band’s official VEVO page suggesting their appearance.
