Aussie Acts Miss Out On Coachella 2012

Written by Patrick Abboud on January 11, 2012

The year’s Coachella Festival in California will feature just one Australian act.

And the winner is … Gotye.

With a gaping hole in the line-up for Australian artists this year, Gotye will be ‘representing’ for all of us.

For the first time in 2012, the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival will be held over two weekends, both with identical line-ups. Headlining are The Black Keys, Radiohead and Dr Dre & Snoop Dogg.

Aussie acts Cut Copy, Tame Impala and The Presets played at last year’s Coachella.
