The 2016 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival has announced its headliners, and once again, it looks like it’s going to be an amazing show! Coachella’s concerts cover two weekends: April 15 through 17 and April 22 through 24. Each of the three main headliners will perform once each weekend.
Guns N’ Roses has been performing since 1985 and are one of the best-selling groups in the world. Coachella will be the first time that Slash and Duff McKagan will be back with the band, so it’s more than just another musical performance for Guns N’ Roses—it’s a reunion with two of the original members. You can catch them on stage on the 16th and the 22nd. Other acts performing on the Saturday dates include Ice Cube, Disclosure, James Bay, Lush, Shamir, Moon Taxi, and GoGo Penguin.
Next up is LCD Soundsystem. Fans were very disappointed in 2011 when they announced their farewell tour and disbandment, but they reunited in 2015 to release a Christmas single and have a studio album coming out this year. Coachella represents one of the first stops on their expanded tour. They’ll be playing on Fridays (the 15th and 22nd) along with M83, Foals, Purity Ring, Lido, and The Last Shadow Puppets, among others.
Finally, the Sunday headliner is Calvin Harris. This Scottish DJ and singer-songwriter debuted at the top of the UK charts and has since gone on to set a world record for the most top 10 songs from a single album in the UK. Others sharing the stage with Harris on the 17th and 24th include Sia, Mike Snow, Pete Yorn, Autolux, Major Lazer, and Fur Coat.
In addition to hearing these and other amazing acts perform live, attendees will also be able to view the large-scale art installations by articles such as Date Farmers, Robert Bose, Phillip K. Smith III, and Rosario Marquardt. Tickets are now on sale, but they are going fast.
