04-14-2007 | Music Events
The biggest US festival, set to take place in the Californian desert from the 27th to the 29th of April and already sold out, will feature 6 French artists for the first time since its creation.
This high-profile festival (which programmed Depeche Mode, Pixies, Radiohead, The Cure, Daft Punk and many other top acts in the past) is a perfect opportunity for French artists to show their talent on the American territory. For the first time ever this year, the line up boasts 6 French produced artists;showing the growing interest for the French repertoire in the US.
The production work and DJ talent of David Guetta will be heard on Friday April 27th, following the release of 'Guetta Blaster' in the United States in March. On the same day, Digitalism will most definitely rock the crowd with their thumping yet refined electro, building the anticipation of their upcoming album 'Idealistic', tentatively set to drop in June.
On Saturday April 28th, Justice will confirm all the praises they received for the past 2 years and prepare the US release of their album in June. Gotan Project will also perform with a decidedly stronger emphasis on the more organic roots of tango, as can be heard on their successful 2006 record 'Lunático'.
Last but not least, two of the biggest French acts of the new millennium will perform on Sunday, April 29th: the classy French pop/electro duo Air will have a chance to defend its new cosmic album 'Pocket Symphony' in front of the American audience; and Manu Chao, a world music superstar who has yet to reach his full potential in the US, will entice America before the release of his upcoming album later this year. And last but not least, DJ Mehdi and Busy P will also be performing at Coachella...
Among other scheduled acts, the US audience will enjoy performances by Björk, Red Hot Chili Peppers, a reunited Rage Against the Machine, Arctic Monkeys, Sonic Youth… This most impressive line up was recently unveiled on their website, prompting an all-out battle for tickets and helping the festival to sell out faster than ever.
