The eagerly anticipated lineup for the upcoming Coachella festival has been unveiled, featuring headliners Lana Del Rey, Doja Cat, Tyler, the Creator, and No Doubt. The 2024 Coachella festival, organized by Goldenvoice, is set to take place at the Empire Polo Grounds in Indio, California, over the weekends of April 12-14 and April 19-21.
The diverse lineup includes a mix of established and rising artists, with Peso Pluma, Blur, J Balvin, Ice Spice, Sublime, Lil Uzi Vert, Grimes, Victoria Monet, Jon Batiste, Bleachers, Justice, Deftones, Lil Yachty, and others slated to perform. Rising talents like Bizarrap and Khruangbin also feature prominently in the lineup.
For those who purchased tickets for the 2023 or 2022 festival, there is an early access opportunity during the loyalty presale starting on January 18 at 2 p.m. PST. The general presale kicks off on January 19 at 11 a.m. PST.
YouTube will serve as the exclusive livestream partner for both weekends of Coachella on the festival's official YouTube channel. This marks the third year with a curious fourth headlining slot at the bottom of the festival poster, signifying headliner billing but without a specific date.
The significance of this fourth slot has been somewhat enigmatic. Initially thought to be a late-night dance slot or an insurance headliner, its purpose remains unclear. Notably, in 2022, it accommodated Swedish House Mafia when Kanye West canceled, and in 2023, Blink-182 replaced Frank Ocean during the second weekend. This year, No Doubt holds this position, adding to the intrigue surrounding its meaning.
Sources suggest that Dua Lipa and Shakira, both with anticipated albums in 2024, were also considered for headlining spots, with Lipa reportedly declining due to timing issues, and organizers allegedly passing on Shakira.
