Ah, Coachella… Everyone’s favourite annual indie-boho style music festival. Well this flower crown, headband fest is back again this year on the 14th - 16th and the 21st - 23rd of April, with some of the biggest names in music and here are 5 artists to look forward to in this year’s lineup!
1. Hans Zimmer
Yes, you heard it right. Hans Zimmer, multi award winning composer who wrote soundtracks for The Lion King, The Dark Knight and Inception, and all around legend will be performing at this years Coachella festival. What a surprise! I bet no one saw that coming! I sure didn’t but, who’s complaining?
The Queen, Beyoncé Knowles, will be headlining this year’s Coachella festival on the 16th and 23rd of April. Back in 2014, she surprised everyone by appearing alongside her sister onstage, Solange Knowles to perform Solange's hit Losing You, but this year she takes the stage for herself and it’s not something you want to miss!
1997 rock band Radiohead is set to headline Coachella again this year for the 3rd time after previous performances at the 2004 and 2012 festivals. The English group is set to play on the 14th and 21st of April and hopefully we’ll get to hear some of their top hits like Creep and Karma Police.
4. DJ Snake
DJ Snake is no stranger to this festival as he returns for his second round after his first show in 2015. Ever since his collaboration with Justin Bieber on Let Me Love You in 2016, the DJ has received a wave of new fans and it would be sick to watch Lean On’s co-producer take it up a level this year.
5. Kendrick Lamar
Back from 2012, rapper Kendrick Lamar is Coachella 2017’s third headliner. This Grammy award winning rapper will be taking chic partygoers down memory lane to m.A.A.d city as he stars on the big stage on the 16th of April as well as the final date: the 23rd of April.
Of course, choosing just five was tough but some of my other choices as well as some well-loved fan favourites are Two Door Cinema Club, Empire of the Sun, the xx, Lorde, Mac Miller, Bastille and Glass Animal.
