All right, kids.  Stop the guessing and the Smith-reunion rumors!  The Coachella website is now adorned with this year's poster and the bookers have once again presented a intriguing group of acts that will take place April 15-17 at the Empire Pologrounds.

Friday's headliner is Kings of Leon, Saturday's headliner is Arcade Fire, and Sunday lists both The Strokes and Kanye West, who will hopefully go on at the designated time and not have a meltdown like he did at Bonnaroo 2008.

Other acts listed on the bill so far include:

Friday: The Chemical Brothers, Lauryn Hill, The Black Keys, Interpol, Brandon Flowers, Cee-Lo Green, Cut Copy, Flogging Molly, Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears, !!!, Ozomatli, the Aquabats.
