Coachella Music Festival announces its iconic lineup this week for its 2024 edition. This year, the festival will take place across two weekends – April 12th-14th and April 19th-21st and will take place at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California. This year’s lineup features headliners Lana Del Rey for Friday, Tyler, the Creator for Saturday and Doja Cat for Sunday.
In addition, Friday will also see up-and-coming reggaeton artist Peso Pluma, pioneers of electronic music Justice, techno queen Peggy Gou, and alternative punk rock gods Deftones. Other notable names on Friday include old school UK grunge bass Skepta, the angelic voice of Suki Waterhouse, minimal techno Adriatique and BLOND:ISH, pounding techno up-and-comer Miss Monique, and genreless Tinashe.
Saturday will boast the female rap icon Ice Spice, the 10-piece alternative funk band Jungle, old school dark industrial pioneer Gesaffelstein, techno stars Charlotte de Witte and Reiner Zonnevald, 90s nostalgic ska Sublime, and the ethereal vocals of Grimes.
The weekends will close out with reggaeton star J Balvin, french electro house DJ Snake, 2000’s emo Taking Back Sunday, psychedelic soul funk Khruangbin, slow vibey R&B Jhené Aiko, and last but not least – the ska punk legendary No Doubt with lead singer Gwen Stefani.
