It’s official. Beyoncé, The Weeknd, and Eminem will headline the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in an unprecedented lineup, which will not feature a rock act in any of the closing slots for the first time ever.
This also marks the first time that Queen Bey, Slim Shady, and Abel have headlined the annual Indio, Calif. celebration. But this is one of Yoncé’s more anxiously-awaited performances to date since she was slated to headline last year’s lineup, but had to postpone the performance due to her pregnancy.
Many of today’s R&B and Hip-Hop stars dominate the three-day bill as well. Friday (April 13 and 20) kicks off with SZA, Vince Staples, Daniel Caesar, Belly, KYLE, Kelela and more, while The Weeknd will cap things off at night.
Before Beyoncé’s headlining slot on Day 2 (April 14 and 21), Tyler the Creator, Post Malone, Wizkid, Jorja Smith, Chloe x Halle and more will take the stage.
Day 3 (April 15 and 22) boasts an equally star-studded bill, including Miguel, Migos, Cardi B, French Montana, 6LACK, DeJ Loaf, Jidenna, Jacob Banks, LION BABE, and Eminem, who will close out the desert festival.
Coachella is set to take place April 13-15 and April 20-22 at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, Calif. Passes go on sale Friday, Jan. 5, at 12 p.m. PST at coachella.com.
