Coachella Bosses Rule Out Prince Appearance

Subscribe To:

The organisers of next month's (Apr08) Coachella Festival have slammed reports PRINCE will be performing in a tent. The Los Angeles Times newspaper reported the news that Prince would be part of Coachella overnight (18/19Mar08), but festival bosses insist that's not the case. Brandon K. Phillips, the CEO of Coachella co-producers AEG Live, says, "This is absolutely not true. Regardless of what the Times was told, there is no commitment from Prince to play Coachella." Meanwhile, Goldfrapp, Kate Nash, Aphex Twin, Redd Kross and Serj Tankian have been added to the line-up for the three-day event, and indie band New Young Pony Club have pulled out of the festival. In a post on their website, the band writes, "We're very sad to have to announce that we won't be playing Coachella this year. It was a really hard decision to make but essentially we felt it's impossible for us to come this year."
