Radiohead, Beyoncé and Kendrick Lamar to Headline Coachella 2017?
Published Nov 30, 2016Coachella reached out to an older demographic with their Desert Trip offshoot (a.k.a. "Oldchella") earlier this year, but the fest is returning to its regular blockbuster programming for two weekends in April. The festival runs from April 14 to 16 then again from April 21 to 23, in Indio, CA, and this year's headliner rumours have already started to swirl.
Hits Daily Double is reporting that Radiohead, Beyoncé and Kendrick Lamar will headline the 2017 edition of the festival.
Radiohead previously headlined Coachella in 2004 and 2012, while Beyoncé made surprise guest appearances in 2010 and 2014, but has never been formally billed as a performer. Lamar, meanwhile, played the festival in 2012 and made a cameo during Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg's set that same year. In 2016, he made a surprise appearance during Ice Cube's set.
Coachella organizers have not confirmed the rumours, but an official lineup announcement is expected early next year. Last year's rumours about Guns N' Roses and LCD Soundsystem each reuniting to play the festival both turned out to be true.
