Let the agony of conflicts commence: Coachella and Goldenvoice have announced the set times for this year's festival.
Actually, at first glance, it looks as though organizers have done a decent job of avoiding crowd cannibalization, which means both that fans don't have to make major sacrifices (we haven't forgotten the Great Nas/Jimmy Eat World Decision of Coachella 2011, have you?) and performing artists don't have to worry — as long as they're good enough to draw the crowd in the first place, at any rate.
That said, there are red stress flags: Azealia Banks (5-5:45 p.m.) and Kieza (4:55-5:40 p.m.) on Friday. Marina and the Diamonds (5:45-6:35 p.m.) and Jenny Lewis (5:35-6:25 p.m.) on Sunday. FKA twigs (9:35-10:25 p.m.) and headliner Jack White (9:15-11 p.m.) on Saturday.
So basically, if you want to see any of the (painfully few) women on the Coachella bill perform this weekend or next, better start planning.Copyright © 2017, Los Angeles Times
