The Black Keys perform at the 2011 Coachella Festival

If this year's roster seems familiar, it's because many of the leading acts have appeared in the desert festival before.

Is it us, or does the 2012 Coachella Music and Arts Festival lineup seem familiar?

The Black Keys, Radiohead, Arctic Monkeys, and David Guetta are all top acts for this year's incarnation and they are all return performers to the desert festival.

Because so many of the groups have taken the stage before, The Hollywood Reporter did an informal survey/sampling of how many times the headliners and "large font" groups have appeared in the past five years.

The Black Keys and French House DJ Guetta lead the pack with three performances in all, counting this year. And though not within our five-year parameters, Radiohead played in 2004 and lead singer Thom Yorke’s Atoms for Peace took the Outdoor Stage in 2010.
