There's a host of Brit acts on the bill - including one very specially reformed outfit...

COLDPLAY, NINE INCH NAILS, NEW ORDER and WEEZER are set to top the bill at the sixth Californian COACHELLA FESTIVAL.

A host of British acts including Keane, Snow Patrol, Doves, Prodigy, British Sea Power, Iggy And The Stooges, The Chemical Brothers, Pixies, [/a], Katie Melua, Roots Manuva, [a] and Stereophonics will also play over the two-day event, which runs over the weekend of April 30-May 1. The festival will again take place at the Empire Polo Field in Indio, a desert hot spot two hours outside of LA.

After festival bosses brought a reunited [/a]to the line up in 2003 and helped get the [a] back together for their 2004 show, Coachella 2005 will follow the tradition of bringing back reformed groups by hosting Bauhaus and Cocteau Twins in this year’s line-up.

“With the Cocteau Twins – I just kept persevering,” festival promoter Paul Tollett told NME.COM. “The same guy who helped me with [a][/a], helped me with that one. We just want to have all different types [of artists]. We’re not looking for bands that haven’t been around necessarily, just different types of music that add up.”
