As festival season warms up, more events are announcing their line-ups. The latest to do so is the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. The California mainstay will feature lots of A-list talent across several genres on April 10–2 and April 17–19.
AC/DC will headline both Fridays, to be joined by Lykke Li, Ryan Hemsworth, Jon Hopkins, Cloud Nothings, Keys N Krates, George Ezra and Kieza. There will also be a fairly decent hip-hop showing with Azealia Banks, Flying Lotus, Raekwon and Ghostface Killah, and Action Bronson. DJ Snake, who’s still riding high off his hit single with Lil Jon, “Turn Down For What,” will also hit the stage.
Jack White will be the main attraction on both Saturdays. Joining the rocker are The Weeknd, Ratatat, FKA Twigs, Toro y Moi, Bad Religion, Tyler, the Creator, Run the Jewels, the War on Drugs, and alt-J. Electronic music will be well represented with performances by Flosstradamus, SBTRKT, Yellow Claw, Cashmere Cat, and Detroit techno star Carl Craig. And radio faves Hozier and Clean Bandit are sure to please with their hits “Take Me to Church” and “Rather Be,” respectively.
On Sunday, Drake will lead the way, and he’ll be in good company with Florence & the Machine, David Guetta, Fitz & the Tantrums, Madeon, Lil B, R3hab, Saint Motel, Jamie xx, Brand New, Odesza and Cedric Gervais, to name a few.
