The Guardian is one of our favorite publications — we look to their take on Coachella, in part, because British bands of yore Blur and the Stone Roses are the Day 1 headliners (above Yeah Yeah Yeahs, even), and because it’s also very hilarious. Best line’s a toss-up between the Twitter assessment of Blur from an attendee (“Crowd loved Song 2. American fella behind me said ‘these guys are gonna be big!'”), and the opening salvo, “You don’t need an artfully retro Instagram filter to make Coachella look like the capital of Planet Hipster.” (Well, for these two weekends, at least.)
