Music lovers rejoice- the popular music festival of Indio, Calif. is back and features headliners such as Kings of Leon, Arcade Fire, Kanye West and the Strokes.

The festival held at the Empire Polo Club grounds, now in its 13th year, also features comebacks for several artists. Examples include Ms. Lauryn Hill (the “Ms.” a somewhat new addition to her name) and a reunion from Death From Above 1979, a band that saddened many fans with their breakup several years ago.

Other notable acts include folk-rockers Mumford & Sons, Bright Eyes, Jimmy Eat World, Brandon Flowers of the Killers, electronica act Chromeo and 80’s pop sensation Duran Duran.

Passes go on sale this Friday, and concert-goers can choose to buy a pass for one day (price currently unknown) or a festival pass for $269 USD. Alternately, one can buy a VIP festival pass for $699 USD which allows pass holders access to shaded areas of the grounds (the festival is generally known to be in direct sunlight all of the time).
