Nick Cave, Blur, Stone Roses at Coachella

Aussie rocker Nick Cave and British bands Blur and The Stone Roses will appear at this year's Coachella festival in California.

Blur and The Stone Roses will co-headline the Friday nights of the two-weekend event in Indio, while French act Phoenix will close out the Saturdays and Red Hot Chili Peppers, themselves from California, will shut down the festivities on the Sunday nights.

Nick Cave will perform with both The Bad Seeds and Grinderman, while New Order, Johnny Marr and OMD will add to the British blast-from-the-past feel of Coachella 2013.

Guitarist Marr was rumoured to be part of a Smiths reunion at Coachella, but he'll be performing solo.

Also on the bill: rappers Wu-Tang Clan, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, the reunited Postal Service, Passion Pit, The xx, Sigur Ros, Vampire Weekend, Lou Reed, Modest Mouse, Moby, Janelle Monae, Beach House, Bat For Lashes, Spiritualized, Franz Ferdinand and 2012 Mercury Music Prize winners Alt-J.

The festival will take place over two weekends from April 12-21.
