Getting nostalgic at Coachella

Still, the fans looked happy as they hiked back to their cars. For the first time in the festival's five-year history, both days completely sold out, which comes as no surprise. "I think the success of this year's Coachella comes down to a particularly great lineup of strong artists and an audience whose tastes have become even more diverse," said the event's promoter, Paul Tollett of Goldenvoice.

Just don't chalk up this year's triumph to retro appeal. A band's past popularity is no guarantee that it'll find fans -- new or old -- in the present. The real reason? Good music never goes out of style.
