Beyonce, Kendrick Lamar And Radiohead To Headline Coachella 2017

| January 3, 2017 | 0 Comments

Beyonce, Radiohead, and Kendrick Lamar will headline the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival this year.

The 18th annual fest will once again take place over two weekends — April 14 to 16 and April 21 to 23 — at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, Calif.

Aside from a brief surprise cameo during husband Jay Z’s headlining set in 2010, and again for little sister Solange’s appearance in 2014, Beyonce has never played the desert festival. She will headline the second night, with returning veterans Radiohead on Friday and Kendrick Lamar (who first played the fest in 2012) closing out the proceedings on Sunday. All three artists released highly acclaimed new music in 2016.

Beyonce is the first woman to headline Coachella in 10 years (Bjork headlined in 2007).

Also featured in the lineup are the xx, Travis Scott, Father John Misty, Future, Bon Iver, DJ Snake, Tove Lo, DJ Khaled and New Order. Passes for Coachella will go on sale at 11 a.m. PST on Wednesday, Jan. 4. Check out the full list of artists below.
