AC/DC, Drake, Jack White to Headline Coachella

The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival released the lineup for its 16th iteration Tuesday morning, with Drake, Jack White and Aussie hard rock veterans AC/DC scheduled to headline.

The three-day event, which kicks off the festival season on two consecutive weekends, will offer identical lineups on April 10-12 and 17-19. Drake and AC/DC are both first-time headliners – though Drake made a brief cameo during Jhene Aiko’s set last year – while White has played multiple times with bands the White Stripes, the Raconteurs and the Dead Weather.

AC/DC are hardly the only act pitched to lure the old-timers: Steely Dan will also perform, as well as shoegaze pioneers Ride, 1990s Britpoppers Belle & Sebastian and Wu-Tang Clan members Raekwon and Ghostface Killah. As for the current decade, buzzed-about acts the War on Drugs, Mac DeMarco and Hozier will make appearances, as well as hip-hop firebrand Azealia Banks.

Also on the roster: Interpol, Florence and the Machine, the Weeknd and St. Vincent. Electronic dance music again claims a healthy share of the lineup, with Kaskade, Axwell/Ingrosso, David Guetta and DJ Snake among the bigger names.

Last year’s Coachella grossed $78 million dollars over both weekends.

See the full lineup below.
