Coachella is one of the most iconic and highly anticipated music festivals of the year, drawing in thousands of music lovers from all over the world to the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California. This year’s lineup, which was announced earlier today, is nothing short of impressive, featuring a diverse mix of genres and some of the biggest names in the industry.
One of the headliners for this year’s festival is none other than the highly acclaimed rap artist Frank Ocean. The dual-weekend run will mark Frank Ocean’s return to the Coachella stage (and live shows overall) since 2017. Fans have been eagerly awaiting his latest album and performances, as Frank was initially announced as a headliner for Coachella in 2020, and was one of the first headliners announced for Coachella in late 2022. The rapper is known for his captivating live shows, and is sure to bring the excitement that Coachella is known for.
Another headliner is Bad Bunny, the Puerto Rican rapper Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio. Bad Bunny has had a meteoric rise in popularity since 2016 with his song “Diles”, and recent collaborations with Farruko and J Balvin. With the festival’s emphasis on dancing and grooving, Bad Bunny will be a perfect fit for Coachella audiences.
Joining the headliners is a diverse group of artists representing a wide range of genres. Some notable acts include the legendary indie-rock supergroup boygenius, featuring Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers and Lucy Dacus, who are sure to get the crowd emotional. MUNA will make their Coachella debut, almost certainly to feature a Phoebe Bridgers Cameo on “Silk Chiffron”.
Coachella also prides itself on showcasing up-and-coming talent, and this year’s lineup does not disappoint. Some rising artists worth checking out include the The Kid Laroi, whose collab with Justin Bieber on “Stay” in 2021 went viral on social media. The Linda Lindas, a young punk band who shocked us all with their talent while on their tour with Japanese Breakfast last summer, will also be performing.
Overall, this year’s Coachella lineup is one of the most diverse and exciting in recent memory, with something for everyone to enjoy. Whether you’re a fan of hip-hop, rock, pop, or electronic music, the festival has something to offer. With so many incredible acts taking the stage, it’s sure to be an unforgettable experience for all in attendance.
