In December there were rumors that the Rolling Stones would be performing, but Rolling Stone magazine confirmed last week that the British rock group, which celebrated its 50th anniversary last year, definitely would not be playing. Coachella seemed to poke fun at the rumor last night by tweeting a photo of an object that looked like a round stone on a polo field (similar to the Jan. 3 image posted on its Facebook page). The festival is held on the Empire Polo Grounds in Indio, Calif.
