Coachella, one of music’s popular festivals has just released their 2018 lineup. Besides Beyonce, who fans already knew was heading to Indio, California, this April, the two-weekend festival has confirmed that The Weekend and Eminem are her fellow headliners. The 19th annual festival will kick off on April 13th and wrap the weekend of April 22nd.
Alongside the top three headliners, other performers on the bill include rappers Cardi B and Post Malone. The 2018 lineup also includes performances from SZA, Miguel, Kygo, Haim, Odesza, Migos, David Byrne, King Krule, A Perfect Circle, Vince Staples, St. Vincent, X Japan, alt-j, Jamiroquai, War on Drugs and Fleet Foxes, among others.
Beyonce was set to perform at last year’s Coachella but due to her pregnancy and advice from her doctors canceled her performance and replaced by Lady Gaga who filled in her shoes as the headliner. Long before he was making moves on the Billboard Hot 100, The Weekend performed at the festival for the first time back in 2012. Eminem will be making his Coachella debut in the Sunday lineup.
Annie Clark aka St. Vincent has had a stellar 2017 year with the release of her fifth studio album Masseduction. She is slated to appear at this year’s festival as well.
UPDATE: There has also been confusion on which Belly is slated to perform at this year’s Coachella. For those who are scratching their brains over this question mark, it is the Canadian rapper who will make his appearance.
