COACHELLA kicks off festival season, and is one of the biggest events in California.
This year music lovers and A-listers have been treated to an all-star line-up of artists – here’s what to expect…
What is Coachella?
The festival is one of the first of the year, and its California location means it draws in plenty of celebrities who party the weekend away.
Coachella has been running since 1999 and attracts a quarter of a million people across the two weekends – to the Empire Polo Club site in Indio Valley, near Palm Springs.
When is Coachella 2019?
Coachella takes place over two three-day weekends in the summer.
This year, Weekend One runs from April 12-14, and Weekend Two from April 19-21.
The line-up is the same over both weekends, so those lucky enough to have tickets won’t miss out no matter what date they’re visiting.
Who’s in the line-up for Coachella 2019?
Also performing will be:
- Janelle Monae
- The 1975
- DJ Snake
- RUFUS DU SOL
- Kid Cudi
- Aphex Twin
- J Balvin
- Billie Eilish
- Bad Bunny
- Dillon Francis
The line-up was announced on January 3, with fans overjoyed at the news of Ariana headlining. She’ll also drop in on Kygo’s set to perform No Tears Left To Cry.
Some had expected Kanye West to be announced, but he reportedly pulled out due to staging issues.
Tickets for Coachella 2019 go on sale on Friday January 4.
You’ll be assigned a place in the line and, when you get to the front of it, you get just 10 minutes to complete your purchase – or you lose your spot.
Tickets are limited to two tickets per person.
