2009 Coachella Lineup Finally Revealed: Paul McCartney, Leonard Cohen, My Bloody Valentine, Morrissey, The Killers, The Cure, Throbbing Gristle

After many delays, the Coachella lineup was finally announced a wee bit ago. The lineup is light on huge reunions -- shocker, the Smiths aren't playing -- but has a few cool surprises.

Night one headliner Paul McCartney is preceded by Morrissey and Leonard Cohen. Mr. Cohen is the big surprise/draw, because he's playing his first U.S. shows in fifteen years in 2009. Franz Ferdinand and Conor Oberst are also marquee names. Night two features headliners the Killers (sigh), along with Amy Winehouse, TV On the Radio, Fleet Foxes, Superchunk (!), Henry Rollins, Bob Mould Band and others.

Night three should bring all the old goths/gazers out of the woodwork by featuring My Bloody Valentine, Throbbing Gristle and headliners the Cure. X, Paul Weller and Peter Bjorn and John are also up there.

The entire lineup is after the jump.
