Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival and promoters Goldenvoice have filed a lawsuit against Urban Outfitters for trademark infringement, as LA Weekly reports. The festival alleges that the Urban Outfitters subsidiary company Free People wrongfully used the “Coachella” name brand in item names and descriptions, and that the name was also used as a metatag to “misleadingly” lead customers to certain products (such as a “festival survival kit.) Coachella currently has a licensing deal with H&M, an example the festival uses to assert that it is “extremely selective” with allowing use of the name. Coachella claims it sent a cease-and-desist letter to Urban Outfitters last year that was ignored. The lawsuit demands that the clothing company be prevented by the court from using the name going forward, as well as damages that include all the profits made by Urban Outfitters from clothing with the “Coachella” name.

The Kinks’ Ray Davies has been awarded knighthood, officially making him Sir Raymond Douglas Davies. The 72-year-old was knighted during a ceremony by Prince Charles earlier today, which he called “quite moving with the music and the theatrics,” the Telegraph reports. He was initially awarded the CBE (Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire) back in 2004. Davies also revealed that he is working on a new musical about siblings; his own contentious relationship with brother and fellow Kink, Dave Davies, is well documented. The pair briefly reunited to play together for the first time in two decades at a 2015 show in London. Earlier this year, Ray Davies announced his first solo album of new material in nearly a decade, Americana.
