Massive Attack Trip-Hops to Coachella

Massive Attack has recently announced that they will be joining the already stellar line-up of the seventh annual Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival, to be performed in Indio, CA. This will be the trip-hop band's first U.S. appearance in more than eight years.

"We are playing Coachella, dusk till dark, before Tool on the Sunday night. It's going to be a blast," announced Robert Del Naja on the band's website forum. Continuing his comment on the band's plans for the summer, "the main bulk of the tour will be June-September in Europe, USA, Middle East, Africa and Japan with recording and mixing in-between."

Another point of interest for Coachella is the re-emergence of Daft Punk on the social scene. The French electronica group will be performing for the first time in six years at this year's festival.
