Lana Del Rey, Tyler, the Creator, and Doja Cat are set to headline the 2024 Coachella music festival. Additionally, the ska band No Doubt, led by Gwen Stefani, will reunite and join the lineup after their last performance together in 2015.
The 23rd edition of the festival was announced on Tuesday. It will be held over two weekends, from April 12 to 14 and April 19 to 21, at Empire Polo Club in Indio, California. The lineup will include Blur and up-and-coming rap artist Ice Spice.
All three main performers have previously participated in the festival. Del Rey’s most recent performance at Coachella was in 2014, and she was scheduled to appear in the cancelled 2020 edition due to Covid.
In 2022, Doja Cat made her most recent appearance at Coachella. Meanwhile, Tyler, the Creator has been a consistent performer at the festival since his debut in 2011 with his hip-hop group Odd Future. He has also had solo performances in 2015 and 2018. In addition, he has made guest appearances with fellow rappers Earl Sweatshirt and Schoolboy Q, as well as the Latin soul singer Kali Uchis.
Variety, an entertainment industry publication, reported that Dua Lipa and Shakira were both considered as potential headliners. However, sources revealed that Lipa declined due to a scheduling conflict, while festival organizers chose not to pursue Shakira.
This year’s lineup includes Deftones, Mexican singer Peso Pluma, and Jack Antonoff’s band Bleachers.
In the last two years, Coachella has faced issues with their headlining acts. Both Kanye West and Frank Ocean withdrew from performances at the last minute. Ocean backed out of his second weekend show after receiving criticism for his first weekend set, which included pre-recorded vocals and unconventional elements.
The largest music festival in North America has already sold out of its 125,000 day tickets. On Friday at 11am PT, three-day passes will be available for purchase during Coachella’s pre-sale.
