Jan. 25 (UPI) -- Coachella's organizers finally announced their lineup for this year's festival in Indio, Calif., in a tweet Thursday. 2013's Coachella will feature reunited acts like Blur, the Stone Roses and the Postal Service and festival favorites Phoenix, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Modest Mouse and Franz Ferdinand. Oh, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers will be there.

Set for the weekends of April 12 and April 19, Coachella's other acts include Nick Cave (with the Bad Seeds and Grinderman), Modest Mouse, Lou Reed, Wu-Tang Clan, the Violent Femmes, Vampire Weekend, Grizzly Bear, Jurassic 5, Passion Pit, the Postal Service and more.

Held at Indio's Empire Polo Grounds since 1999, Coachella's remaining tickets go on sale Tuesday, Jan. 29, at 10a.m. on their website. Most of the tickets were sold last year in a pre-sale.
