Beyoncé & Kendrick Lamar to Headline Coachella 2017
It’s official. Beyoncé and Kendrick Lamar will headline this year’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, taking place in Indio, Calif. over the course of two weekends in April.
Confirmed today (Jan. 3), this year’s event is slated to feature another star-studded roster of artists for what’s sure to be one of 2017’s most talked-about events.
Opening things up on Friday (Apr. 14), the date will include sets from Travis Scott, Mac Miller, DJ Shadow, and more, as Radiohead will rock the night away as the first evening’s headliners.
Things will get royal on Saturday (Apr. 15) when Queen Bey graces the stage. Prior to Beyoncé’s arrival, fans will be treated to sets by Future, DJ Snake, ScHoolboy Q, Gucci Mane, Tory Lanez, and Majid Jordan, among others.
The royal theme will continue on Sunday (Apr. 16) as the first weekend will close out with King Kendrick Lamar. Before Cornrow Kenny hits the main platform, however, DJ Khaled, Lil Uzi Vert, Kehlani, Kaytranada, and many more will hit the fest’s stages and tents.
As always, the festival will feature the same lineup the following weekend, (Apr. 21-23) for its encore edition, which has, in the past, included changes.
This won’t be the first time Coachella audiences have seen Kendrick and Bey at the annual festival. ‘Yoncé performed with Jay Z in 2010 and danced with Solange in 2014. Meanwhile, K. Dot popped up during Ice Cube and Anderson .Paak’s sets last year and delivered a non-headlining set of his own in 2012.
Festival passes for both weekends go on sale Wednesday, Jan. 4, at 11 a.m. PST.
