Childish Gambino, Janelle Monae, Ella Mai & more to play Coachella Festival
Ethan Miller/WireImageChildish Gambino, Janelle Monae, Ella Mai, Wiz Khalifa and more are on the list of performers for this year’s Coachella festival, taking place the weekends of April 12-14 and 19-21 in Indio, California.
Gambino, aka Donald Glover, is one of the festival’s three headliners, which also include pop star Ariana Grande and alt-rockers Tame Impala.
Also taking the Coachella stages this year will be Solange, H.E.R. Anderson .Paak, Kid Cudi, Wiz Khalifa, Pusha T, Jaden Smith, Juice WRLD, YG and many others. The lineup so far includes 165 acts in all. You can check out the complete roster of performers at the Coachella website.
Childish Gambino is scheduled to perform both weekends of the festival, as are Grande and Tame Impala.
Last year’s big Coachella performer, of course, was Beyoncé, who earned rave reviews for a two-weekend set that also included a Destiny’s Child reunion and a duet with husband JAY-Z. Her powerhouse performance prompted the trending hashtag #Beychella. Her set was also the most-viewed Coachella performance ever on YouTube, and the most-viewed live music festival performance, period, on the platform.
There’s no word yet on whether this year’s Coachella will be live streamed for free, like the first weekend was last year.
Kanye West was rumored to be under consideration to headline Coachella this year, but TMZ reported just hours before the performers were revealed that negotiations had broken down over Kanye’s stage design demands. None of that’s confirmed.
Passes go on sale this Friday, January 4 at 11 AM PT via Coachella.com. As usual, there’ll be the usual variety of ticket options and price levels.
