As always, the bill for the Coachella festival is an embarrassment of riches, with a perfect balance of big-shot headliners (Radiohead, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg), reunited favorites (At the Drive-In, Pulp), old veterans (Squeeze, Jimmy Cliff), DJ superstars (Swedish House Mafia, David Guetta) and indie luminaries (Bon Iver, St. Vincent). Festivals are first and foremost communal experiences, so a lot of the most exciting moments will come when an act plays a particularly iconic song. Click through for what Rolling Stone hopes will be the most thrilling moments of Coachella 2012.
