Will new Madonna debut at Coachella?

The Queen of Pop is one day away from extending her reign to the nation’s most significant alternative music festival. The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is featuring more popular artists today and Sunday than it ever has before. Kanye West. Depeche Mode. Franz Ferdinand. James Blunt. They’ve all had No. 1 singles on the Billboard charts. But most of the media attention at this seventh annual event is on the 50-minute set Madonna will perform in a dance tent at 8:10 p.m. Sunday. “A lot of people (are) asking about Madonna on the media side,” said Coachella founder Paul Tollett of the Los Angeles-based Goldenvoice company. “I understand that. She’s a huge name.” A lot of people are talking about her on the artist side, too. Tom Smith of the Editors, an English neo-punk band performing opposite Madonna on Sunday in the Gobi Tent, has predicted this Coachella will be known as “the Madonna festival.” Geologist (aka Brian Weitz) of the indie band Animal Collective, playing at 4:25 p.m. today, says he’s more interested in seeing Madonna than any other artist on the weekend’s bill. “Throughout her career, she has constantly looked for new ways to inspire herself and her listeners, as opposed to relying on a safe and marketable product,” he told The Desert Sun. “To see an artist care about that after reaching the commercial success and attaining the legendary status that she has should be refreshing and inspiring to all the so-called ‘cutting-edge’ bands.”
