Coachella is known for reuniting bands, and this year is no different. The Britpop band Suede, who just recently completed a reunion tour in Europe, will play their first American show since 1997 on the second day of the festival. Big Audio Dynamite and Death From Above 1979 are also set to play their first reunion shows on the Coachella stage.
