Coachella organizers posted an image of a large round stone at the Empire Polo Grounds on the fesival's official Facebook page, seeming to confirm widespread reports that the Rolling Stones will headline the festival this year, Rolling Stone reported.

The Stones themselves listed Coachella 2013 in the tour section of their mobile app for a brief time late last year, though Mick Jagger told Rolling Stone that he didn't know how it got there.

If the Rolling Stones do perform at Coachella, it will be their first festival gig in the United States since Altamont in 1969. The band also played SARS benefit festival in Toronto in 2003 and the Isle of Wight in England in 2007, but has largely stuck to its own gigs over the years.
