Brochella

Coachella sold out in less than a week, but the festival that is going to occupy the same fairgrounds exactly one week later, goes on general sale Friday at 10am (presales happening now), and that is "The Big 4" which will bring together Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax ("together for the first and only time in the US") for one big Indio, California classic metal show on Saturday, April 23rd .

One week after that, Goldenvoice (also responsible for Coachella and The Big 4) will host its annual Stagecoach Festival at Empire Polo Field (same place). "California's Country Music Festival" is being headlined by people you probably don't care about, but will also include sets by names like Wanda Jackson, Loretta Lynn, the Punch Brothers, the Secret Sisters and Phosphorescent who is also playing Coachella. Tickets are on sale.

I unfortunately could not find a ticket link for Brochella. Full lineup (real poster) for Stagecoach, and a Big 4 video trailer, below...

I think one year at Brochella, Sigur Ros performed ICP'S The Great Milenko in its entirety. That same year (or maybe the yaer before) Animal Collective did Chocolate Startfish & The Hot Dog Flavored Water.

I heard Brochella was booked by Johnny Beach

I am so proud of the fact that I do not like or own anything by any of the bands listed above (ok, so maybe I liked a Dave Matthew Song in college,so sue me)

Haha, same here 3:45. I dub this the "I'd Rather Be In Guantanamo Bay" fest.

Posted by Anonymous | January 27, 2011 3:53 PM

Second to 3:50, although I do like Clap Your Hands Say Yeah.

Posted by Anonymous | January 27, 2011 3:57 PM

To 3:45...it's nothing to be proud of..it's just a given if you're NOT a douchebag. I'd say liking DMB makes you a douchebag anyway...so sit on it Potsy!

the three main headliners give you a clue as to how bad this lineup is. don't get me wrong, there are a handful of decent bands but overall this really has to be one of the worst festival lineups I've ever seen. the name of it is uber stupid.

Posted by Anonymous | January 27, 2011 4:26 PM

Funny that Editors, Fountains Of Wayne and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah are on there. I think those 3 bands have actually played the real Coachella.

Posted by Anonymous | January 27, 2011 4:28 PM

Love it.

Whether y'all would admit it or not, the Beastie Boys would be right at home on this lineup.

Posted by Anonymous | January 27, 2011 4:29 PM

You guys gonna see Dave? Yo, Dave is the best! He's all like, "nuh na nuh na nuhhhhh. Bayyyyyyybaaaaah!" Yo I put my girlfriend on my shoulders at the last DAVE show and we smoked, get this, weeeeeeeeeeed. It was crazy. I was like, "whoa, weeeeeeeed is crazy awesome!" You gonna see Bisco next week?

Posted by Anonymous | January 27, 2011 4:32 PM

Fountains of Wayne listed so far down? Fuck that.

Posted by TheSloot | January 27, 2011 4:38 PM

ok, is 'Brochella' a real fest, or an elaborate early April Fools joke? The name is so bad, line up is terrible, etc. I can't help but think (hope) that it's a joke? Someone, anyone...

And I do feel compelled to defend Dave Matthews a bit, his record label signs some cool bands, and his acoustic stuff with Tim Reynolds is actually very cool, it's the full band stuff that's pretty bad!

4:46, are you really that gullible?

Posted by Anonymous | January 27, 2011 4:49 PM

I have to say it. MNDR? REALLY!? She doesn't even make music. It just sounds that manage to follow a tempo. It's thudding sounds with a fat chick's voice over it. It's like white Black Eyed Peas. Gross gross gross

The early 2000's were the real "Great Depression." Like a frat party time capsule. No wonder I did so much Cocaine...

Probably has to do with the fact that you'
re a cokehead. But hey whatever gets you to sleep at night...

5:23: If that guy really was a cokehead. I think getting to sleep would be way down on the list of things to do.

Posted by Anonymous | January 27, 2011 8:08 PM

Do bros like Creed, Goo Goo Dolls and the Backstreet Boys? Maybe Phish, Railroad Earth, Disco Biscuits, and STS9 would be more fitting. "Brochella" is clearly a joke...just seems like a very poorly executed one to me.

Posted by Anonymous | January 27, 2011 8:49 PM

Big 5 with Dethklok!!!

Posted by Anonymous | January 27, 2011 8:52 PM

Creed, the Backstreet Boys, AND the Goo Goo Dolls in one festival?! We just need Hootie and the Blowfish.
Brochella is making my twelve-year-old dreams come true.

Posted by Anonymous | January 27, 2011 8:53 PM

I think She Wants Revenge are the only band ever to have played both Siren Fest AND Brochella.

And while we're at it, SO stoked for the Deep Blue Something reunion, but where's Eminem? And I guess the Vertical Horizon rumors are false?

Posted by Anonymous | January 27, 2011 9:10 PM

Back Street Boys... Rihanna... The Mentors!!!

lololol

Kings of Leon should be on there.

Posted by Anonymous | January 28, 2011 9:07 AM

I get the feeling that not a lot of people here even know what the Disco Biscuits sound like. I'm not a fan, but they certainly don't fall into the "bro" category (or at least not along the lines of these bands). But whatever.

Hahahaha on Len... wow... can't hate b/c "Steal My Sunshine" was kinda the truth back then, but god DAMN that is a blast from the past.

Posted by Steve | January 28, 2011 9:31 AM

Brilliant. Even Satan would run screaming from this festival. John Mayer, Limp Bizkit and Hootie & The Blowfish are missing from the list though.

Posted by Anonymous | January 28, 2011 10:04 AM

john cena?

However, Day 2 is definitely the best: dmb, lincoln park, evanescence.. nuff said

They're keeping the trance tent with Deadmau5 and David Guetta a secret for now?
