Coachella just revealed its lineup poster yesterday, and at first glance, it appears that the roster offers plenty of acts to appeal to multiple sensibilities, with everything from The Weeknd to The War On Drugs to Eminem to Fleet Foxes scheduled for both weekends. With any festival lineup, though, there are bound to be naysayers, and among the most notable is One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson, who doesn’t seem to be feeling what’s going down in Indio, California this summer.
Reacting to the reveal, he tweeted, “Just seen the Coachella lineup… Where the f-ck are all the bands!? It’s a festival!?”
He also responded to a tweet (from a user with protected tweets) that presumably praises some non-band-oriented genre’s representation in the lineup, writing, “Good line-up for that genre but [definitely] not enough bands!” Another user recommended that Tomlinson check out some lineups for festivals in the Netherlands, to which Tomlinson responded, “Good to know! I’ll have a look.”
Other tweeters had jokes, of course, writing that there’s this cool band called One Direction that would be great for a festival appearance:
Although Tomlinson may have somewhat of a point, considering most of the top-billed artists are solo acts, he should still be able to find comfort in the rest of the lineup, which includes bands like The War On Drugs, Fleet Foxes, Haim, Alt-J, Louis The Child, and a bunch of others.
