    That’s the first Coachella reimagined poster that is accurate in “font size representing lineup relevance”. Rough Trade is higher rank than 54.40 – correct. Slow and DOA not buried deep – correct. Whoever created this knows their 80’s very well. Plus, Food and Drink including Mother’s Pizza. That’s a stroke of genius right there.
