Madonna Plays Coachella

bill-swift - March 3, 2006

Well, this is an odd one. Rolling Stone reports that Madonna will be playing at the Coachella music festival this summer.

"I've never performed at a festival," said Madonna. "And I'm especially excited about playing at Coachella before I start my own tour." She joins a massive bill that includes industrial act Tool, dark pop-rockers Depeche Mode, post-punk act Franz Ferdinand, rapper Common, and buzzed-about reggae newcomers Matisyahu and Damian Marley.

Now, I may be wrong here, but I thought Coachella was the festival for all those Emo-loving, Seth Cohen wannabes, not Madonna groupies. Of course, Madonna is all about coopting anything remotely cool, so I guess it makes sense.
