Coachella 2012 Latin Lineup: Only a Handful

Read more

If we were complaining about last year’s Coachella lineup lacking a decent number in Latin artists, this year is worse, by 60%. Even with having the godlords of Latin rock Caifanes on the roster could probably do a bit justice to the Latino artists deficiency situation. Sure, we’re not complaining about the overall lineup; The Strokes, Radiohead, The Black Keys, Arctic Monkeys and Snoop Dogg? Hell yeah! Though, considering the 3 day festival takes place in California, home to a close 40% of Latinos, we could expect just more Latin artists, just sayin’. But hey, this lineup was just announced so let’s see if things get more Latinized. And let me add that we are happy that At the Drive-In has finally reunited after an 11-years hiatus. So here ya go! Coachella’s lineup, featuring a couple of Latin artists!
