Ok, so we had told you this back in 2016
Lynrd was one of the first to report the news back in November 2016 that Radiohead, Beyoncé and Kendrick Lamar will be headlining Coachella-2017. If you don’t believe us, READ ABOUT IT HERE. Now, it has been made official by Coachella’s organizers that the three big names will be part of the annual festivities that runs for two straight weekends and attracts hundreds of thousands of attenders, with celebrities galore.
It looks like each of the three big acts will be taking to the stage on their respective weekend days over the two weekends. Radiohead will be live on both Fridays, Beyoncé will strut her stuff on both Saturdays and Compton boy Kendrick Lamar will rap on both Sundays. The entire lineup was released by Coachella and the list of artists cross the spectrum of genres and will be interesting to revel in along with the rest of the hippie crowd.
Here are some of the main acts for Coachella 2017 –
Father John Misty
Empire of the Sun
As for first day headliners, Radiohead will be at Coachella for the third time. They performed earlier in 2004 and 2012 respectively. Beyoncé has never done a solo act at the festival, those she has made a couple of appearances for a couple of years. She really isn’t one to share the limelight with other acts, being such a huge one herself, when she’s got her own sold-out shows to perform at. Then there’s the other big act of the event, Kendrick Lamar who showed up to support fellow Compton citizen, Ice Cube, but since he’s made it in the industry, crowds will want to be spit at by the rapper.
If you look at the rest of the lineup, it’s surprising to see Hollywood musical scoring legend, Hans Zimmer among the lot. But taking in his scores live will definitely be an experience not to be missed. New Zealand pop star Lorde is back again. Her last time at Coachella was in 2014 – and this time, she’s tagging along best friend Tove Lo, who outdid herself with one of the biggest hits of the summer.
So much to watch out for squeezed into two weekends, out there in the Californian desert! Make sure you manage to grab your tickets and attend Coachella 2017! It will be taking place from April 14-16 and April 21-23, 2017 at Empire Polo Field in Indio, California. Visit the official Coachella website for more information.
