Childish Gambino, the 1975, Ariana Grande to headline Coachella 2019

Time to start packing your flower headbands, glitter, and short shorts because the lineup for the 2019 incarnation of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival was just announced. On Wednesday (Jan. 2), Coachella festival organizers unveiled the complete roster for the springtime event’s 20th anniversary. Boosting an eclectic and diverse set of acts, this year’s event will include some top 20 artists, some indie/rock bands as well as some up-and-coming musicians.

This year’s headliners include Childish Gambino, the 1975, Ariana Grande, Janelle Monáe, Tame Impala, Solange, Kid Cudi, Khalid, Zedd, and more.

In addition to the aforementioned acts, the lineup will also include Weezer, Pusha-T, Blood Orange, Diplo, Kacey Musgraves, Anderson .Paak, Juice WRLD, the Interrupters, Aphex Twins, J. Balvin, Billie Eilish, Bassnectar, Wiz Khalifa, Christine and the Queens, Bazzi, Bad Bunny, Dillon Francis, CHVRCHES, and even a DJ set from actor/musician Idris Elba.

Coachella will return to the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California for its usual two-weekend takeover. This year, those weekends are April 12-14 and April 19-21. Coachella passes are set to go on sale on this Friday, Jan. 4, at 11 a.m. PT.

For those not able to make it to California, there’s no need to worry. As with past years, YouTube has been named the festival’s exclusive live-streaming partner. This marks the ninth year YouTube and Coachella have joined forces to give fans the chance to watch the festival sets from the comfort of their homes.

The official lineup reveal comes hours after it was announced that widely speculated headliner Kanye West would no longer perform at the annual music festival. According to TMZ, the rapper was dropped from the bill following a disagreement over the stage’s size and design.

For now, the complete lineup for Coachella 2019 can be found below.
