Coachella is coming to Las Vegas.

Okay, not literally. But with so many Coachella-booked acts now scheduled to play on or near the Strip in April, it's starting to feel like we've got our own mini-version of the festival this year.

Iconic British electronic-pop band New Order is coming, with an equally legendary opener, Johnny Marr, ex-guitarist for The Smiths. That combo plays the Cosmopolitan's Boulevard Pool on Thursday, April 11. Tickets are $40 and go on sale Friday, at 10 a.m.

Rarely seen indie supergroup The Postal Service is coming, with opener Mac DeMarco, to the Cosmopolitan's Chelsea Ballroom on Friday, April 19. Tickets for that show are $39.50 and are on sale now here.

And French indie band Phoenix, the Saturday-night headliner for both Coachella weekends, is coming, also to the Cosmopolitan's Boulevard Pool, on Wednesday, April 10. Tickets for that are $35 and go on sale Friday at 10 a.m.

It doesn't stop there. The Boulevard Pool will also play host to Vampire Weekend with Tanlines (Friday, April 12; $31), Of Monsters and Men and Local Natives (Wednesday, April 17; $25), Hot Chip with Four Tet (Thursday, April 18; $26) and Band of Horses (Saturday, April 20; $25). Tickets for all those shows go on sale Friday at 10 a.m.

And on sale now, tickets for several other Coachella acts, including Spiritualized (Friday, April 12; House of Blues; $25-$29.50), The Selecter with Lee Scratch Perry (Sunday, April 14; Hard Rock Cafe on the Strip), Beach House (Monday, April 15; House of Blues; $22); and The xx (Tuesday, April 16; the Joint; $31).
