California-based band Vintage Trouble are headed to Coachella this weekend, and they promise to bring the party to the last weekend of the festival.

Vintage Trouble will take the main stage on Saturday (April 20) at 2:25 p.m. and it will be a set the band says festivalgoers shouldn’t miss. During a recent visit to, frontman Ty Taylor told us what to expect from their set.

“It is going to be our mission to have it be one of the biggest parties at the festival just because we have a good time,” he said. “If people are going to come see us there is going to be something that reminds them of a time when rock & roll and soul and rhythm & blues all came together. We hope to give people a time that will let them know that there was a period of our history when dance music was the kind of music that we’re were doing.”


“We want to make people feel something. You’re in a desert. And we all dream about things like Monterey [Pop Festival, 1967] and we dream about things like Woodstock when people got together in big open fields and big open spaces and made music and really could let their heads back and scream and be wild and sweat and stomp up dirt, mountains of smoke and it felt like it was something having to do with a heavenly witchcraft and people were going crazy and their eyes were spinning and their heads were turning and it was a whole spiritual uplifting,” he explained. “That’s what we’re going to go for to get our audiences to elevate off the ground and float and spin in circles to our music and then come back down, shake our hands, have a drink and all make love together.”

If their 2012 performance on the Late Show with David Letterman or their recent Leno appearance are any indication, Vintage Trouble are a must-see live band.
