Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

To a non-music lover, the above photo features a random stone that has simply rolled onto an empty field. But to a hardcore festival fiend, this powerful message confirms what we've all been waiting for: The Rolling Stones are headlining Coachella this year! Maybe. Hopefully.

As our friends at Guest of a Guest explain, Coachella is no stranger to Rolling Stones rumormongering. Every year we hope for the impossible and are sadly let down. But if the annual art and music fest can throw together a crazy cruise ship, then they can certainly snag the best rock 'n' roll act in the world.

You sure wish you purchased those ridiculously-advanced tickets now, don't you?
