Coachella Goes Old School

(Radio.com) "It's my 1995 dream." That's what Entertainment Weekly Senior Editor Leah Greenblatt told Radio.com about the headliners for this year's Coachella. Indeed, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Blur and the Stone Roses all had albums and tours around that time, and all three bands are among the festival's marquee acts this year.

One of Coachella's other headliners, Phoenix, however, was a few years away from being formed at that point, and therefore bring the median age of Coachella headliners down a bit (as does Chili Pepper guitarist Josh Klinghoffer, who joined RHCP a few years back and was just 16 in '95). Still, you can't deny the '90s vibe in the dessert air.

We spoke to a number of industry insiders including Spinner.com Editor Dan Reilly, music photographer Dana Distortion, NME correspondent Hazel Sheffield, writer and Aritzia Music Director Sarah Lewitinn, KROQ personalities Stryker, Kat Corbett and Nicole Alvarez, and Radio.com's own Jillian Mapes and Erik Parker about this year's festival.

Will Blur play "Song 2″? Why don't the kids know who Stones Roses are? What makes the Chili Peppers such a go-to festival band? Is Coachella a big career moment for Phoenix? Watch the latest edition of Radio.com Inside Out video feature to get the skinny on Coachella 2013 here.
