Album rock giants Steely Dan have been announced in the stellar line-up for the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival 2015, in Indio, California. The band, based around Donald Fagen and Walter Becker, will play two performances, over both weekends of the event, on April 10 and 17. The shows will be their first time on stage since their extensive ‘Jamalot Ever After’ tour of North America, which ran from early July until September 21 last year. The band’s last album was 2003’s ‘Everything Must Go.’
Tickets go on sale for the festival today (January 7) from midday PST, with more details at the Coachella website here. Other headliners include AC/DC, Jack White, Drake, Florence + the Machine, David Guetta, St. Vincent, Alabama Shakes, Interpol, Alesso, Tame Impala, alt-J and Hozier.
Among other notable acts on the huge bill for the two weekends of April 10-12 and 17-19 are Radiohead’s Philip Selway, War On Drugs, Caribou, Kasabian, Clean Bandit, Royal Blood and Stromae. Also playing will be the recently reunited Ride. Unlike other festivals, the same line-up plays Coachella for each of the two weekends, with some 150 acts on the bill. Last year’s Coachella featured OutKast headlining on the Fridays, Muse on the Saturdays and Arcade Fire closing the two Sunday nights.
