Katy Perry Tweets Displeasure Over Coachella Lineup

Victorias Secret Fashion Show

Katy Perry is causing some fireworks over the lineup at one of the year's hottest musical festivals.

The "Teenage Dream" singer lashed out on Twitter after discovering that French electronic music duo Daft Punk, who are back in the spotlight for their work on the Tron: Legacy soundtrack, would not be playing the 2011 Coachella Music Festival in Indio, Calif., reports the New York Daily News.

"Dear @coachella WTF happened to DAFT PUNK?!" she posted on Twitter. "I wanted to get my TRON ON!"

For a week prior to the festival's announcement of its anticipated lineup on January 19, rumors swirled that Daft Punk, made up of Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter, would play the music and arts festival for the first time in five years. However, fans were greeted with the news that Kanye West, the Kings of Leon and Arcade Fire will headline the three-day festival that runs from April 15-17.

Despite being let down by the fact that she won't be able to see one of Daft Punk's highly staged, Matrix-esque stage shows, Perry is determined to make an appearance.

"I'll still be there w/glowstixxxs #coachellalineup," she wrote.
