It was announced earlier today that Arcade Fire would be replacing the Foo Fighters as one of this year's Osheaga headliners, but it turns out that won't be the band's only stop on the summer festival circuit — it's just been announced that Arcade Fire will be playing Coachella tomorrow night. 

The band popped up unexpectedly on the festival's scheduling earlier today after Win Butler posted a selfie to Instagram featuring some very Californian-looking palm trees in the background. Arcade Fire will play a 6:45 p.m. PT set at the Mojave Tent tomorrow, April 15. The band headlined Coachella way back in 2014.  

Arcade Fire are gearing up to release their new seven-track concept album WE on May 6. It was produced by Nigel Godrich, Win Butler and Régine Chassagne. They shared new single "The Lightning I, II" last month. 

Billie Eilish, Harry Styles, and Swedish House Mafia with the Weeknd are headlining this year's festival, which is running April 15 to 17 and April 22 to 24. The lineup also includes Carly Rae Jepsen, Phoebe Bridgers, Megan Thee Stallion, Jamie xx, Vince Staples, Japanese Breakfast, Caribou and many, many more.
