Get your fezzy gear in order and clear your April calendars because the Coachella line-up just dropped and it’s epic.
The annual Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival has a lot to top since they shook the world up with Beyoncé’s headlining performance and was re-dubbed ‘Beychella‘. But they’ve pulled together a red hot team of our faves to take the stages from April 12-14, and then again for the sequel weekend from April 19-21.
Childish Gambino will also be headlining, which is great news for all the Aussies who missed out on seeing him when he had to cancel the Australian leg of his tour.
Then we’ve also got our very own Tame Impala headlining the mega-festival. So you can see some homegrown talent from Kevin Parker and his crew, rocking the world with his psychedelic tunes.
The line-up also sports more huge acts and a diversity of artists including Solange, Kid Cudi, Janelle Monáe, the 1975, Jon Hopkins, Mac DeMarco, Diplo, Kacey Musgraves, Maggie Rogers, Weezer, Pusha-T, SOPHIE, Aphex Twin, Gucci Gang, Sofi Tukker, Anderson .Paak, Juice WRLD, Playboi Carti, Bad Bunny, Sheck Wes, Gesaffelstein, J Balvin, and a whole lot more you can see below.

One act that no one saw coming is Idris Elba, who apparently also DJ’s on top of being a beloved man of Hollywood. Before the hype of his Coachella slot wore off, Netflix announced that Idris Elba will actually be starring as a DJ in a comedy series called Turn Up Charlie that premieres on March 15.
Coachella 2019 sufficiently calls for a trip to the US if you can swing it, because this line-up is what dreams are made of.
