My theories on both Yeasayer and Beach House were confirmed. Yeasayer will have a Friday slot, with Beach House holding down a spot on Saturday. Both bands had tours coming through the Southwest/California around the time of Coachella and both had Los Angeles dates absent from that stretch of their respective tours. Now, it wasn't rocket science to see this happening, but it took a little intiution to clearly see that -- based on their reputation and talents -- that Coachella would invite them. That, or the bands already knew they were playing the festival and simply couldn't reveal that information until the lineup was officially announced.
