The lineup for Coachella 2013 has finally been announced, and after months of restless speculation, fans can breathe easy: This year's festival is stacked with killer acts, including the Stone Roses, Blur, Phoenix, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Postal Service, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, the xx, NIck Cave and the Bad Seeds, Modest Mouse, New Order, Vampire Weekend and Sigur Ros.

Drumroll, please. The first two acts confirmed to appear at the famed "can't miss" multi-weekend festival known as Coachella next spring have been revealed. While it's not the headliners or any major acts, it's good news for EDM fans. German electronic artist Paul Kalkbrenner and dubstepper Kill the Noise are set to perform at the festival.
