Again, this poster is just a rumor. LA's Guest of a Guest did some chin-scratching about this lineup and concluded that it's really, really heavy on '90s nostalgia, especially in the headliner department. We agree -- and we're quite surprised that all the big fonts went to aging rock acts. (Why not an aging hip-hop act?) But at the same time, this does seem like the kind of broad cross-section of respected artists that Coachella strives to assemble. If someone faked this, they did a somewhat thoughtful job.
