Childish Gambino, Tame Impala and Ariana Grande have been tapped to headline Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights of both weekends respectively. Other notable names scheduled to perform include Janelle Monae, DJ Snake, BLACKPINK, Solange, Kid Cudi, J Balvin, Billie Eilish, Zedd, Khalid, CHVRCHES, Sofi Tuckker and Christine & The Queens.
Reportedly, Kanye West was in talks to headline one of the nights but talks fell through due to logistics. Apparently, West wanted to perform on a special stage and not the traditional 60×40 foot stage. “These 40×60 stages are so archaic. It’s the same type of stage on which Shakespeare’s works were performed hundreds of years ago,” a Kanye source told TMZ.
Coachella takes place on the weekends of April 12-14 and April 19-21. Tickets go on sale this Friday, January 4. Check the official website for details.
