Since its inception in 1999, the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival has made bold attempts to reunite some of the most sought after bands in modern music history. And many of those attempts have successfully come to fruition, making Coachella the preeminent and trusted outlet for artists to bring back the magic that we the music fans hold near and dear to our hearts and our lives. With Jane's Addiction in 2001, Iggy and The Stooges in 2003, Pixies in 2004, Daft Punk in 2006 and Rage Against the Machine and The Jesus & Mary Chain in 2007, Coachella made headlines around the world, making huge headliner reunions one of the festival's defining and signature attractions. This year Coachella is giving seven artists the figurative "slap on the ass" and telling them, "Get back out there and go get 'em, Champ!"
