Ariana Grande, Childish Gambino, Tame Impala to Headline Coachella 2019

UPDATED: Coachella dropped the lineup for its 2019 fest Wednesday evening, revealing that, while Kanye West will not be headlining, the desert carnival found three heavy-hitters to take the reins instead.

Childish Gambino will headline day one of the fest, with Tame Impala taking day two and Ariana Grande closing out Coachella on Sunday night. This makes Grande the fourth woman to headline the festival since its inception in 1999 after Beyoncé (who slayed last year with a 105-minute performance), Lady Gaga (who filled in for Beyoncé the previous year, on account of the latter’s pregnancy) and Bjork, who headlined both in 2002 and 2007. At least one Knowles sister will make an appearance, with Solange set to perform on day two. Other female artists on the bill include Janelle Monáe, Kacey Musgraves, Billie Eilish, Ella Mai, H.E.R., Maggie Rogers and Christine and the Queens.

Elsewhere on the lineup are performances by Bad Bunny, the 1975, Weezer, Zedd, Diplo, Khalid, CHVRCHES, Mac DeMarco, Pusha T, J Balvin, DJ Snake, Jaden Smith, Idris Elba (doing a DJ set), Virgil Abloh, Kid Cudi, Aphex Twin, Jon Hopkins, Blood Orange and more. 

The fest will run for two weekends — starting first on April 12-14 and again on April 19-21 — on the grounds of the Empire Polo Club in Indio, Calif.

One confusing note: The poster lists “Gucci Gang” as performing on Day 3. It was unclear at presstime whether that meant rapper Gucci Mane (an Atlantic rep said Thursday morning she did not think he is performing), Lil Pump (whose major hit is called “Gucci Gang”) or another, hitherto-unknown performer. At press time reps had not fully clarified the situation.

Tickets go on sale Jan. 4 at 11 a.m.
