Announcing the 2018 Coachella Music Festival Lineup

Coachella 2018 KEXP

The 2018 Coachella alley Music and Arts Festival returns for two weekends, April 13-15 and April 20-22. Last night the lineup dropped and, as always, there’s plenty to pore over.

We already knew Beyoncé would be a headliner this year after she had to drop out from 2017’s lineup when she became pregnant with twins (pretty understandable), but it’s still thrilling to see her name on the poster. Also receiving top billing are rap legend Eminem and R&B/pop star The Weeknd. Seattle’s own ODESZA gets an impressive showing as the second billing on Sunday and fellow PNW artists Fleet Foxes, Perfume Genius, and Aminé also grace the lineup.

Rounding out the bill is an impressive cast of musicians including SZA, David Byrne, Kygo, Jamiroquai, St. Vincent, Migos, The War on Drugs, Vince Staples, Portugal The Man, HAIM, Tyler, the Creator, Miguel, alt-J, Angel Olsen, King Krule, Kamasi Washington, Yaeji, Noname, Princess Nokia, First Aid Kit, The Drums, Ibeyi, Japanese Breakfast, Jidenna, Alvvays, Cherry Glazer, BROCKHAMPTON, and many more.

Tickets go on sale this Friday, Jan. 5, at noon here.
