Coachella Announces 2019 Lineup

4th January 2019 | Category: Concerts

The biggest music festival in the world returns this April and the lineup was announced few days ago and we can freely say you won’t be disappointed. Ariana Grande, Childish Gambino and Tame Impala will headline the festival with a lot more names following.

Hurry up and purchase your tickets before they sell out.

The lineup is organized almost singlehandedly by Goldenvoice chief and Coachella co-founder Paul Tollett. Although the most of the tickets sell long before the lineup is announced, he knows that he needs few huge names to meet the standards of the previous years’ successes.

He knows the lineup has to be forward-looking but also reflect popularity. But the most important thing to keep in mind while choosing artists for the festival is that they need to satisfy the tastes of an unusually large age group both rock veterans who have been attending since the first Coachella in 1999 when it was a one-day event with headlining sets from Beck, Underworld, the Chemical Brothers and Spiritualized and the millennials and Generation-Z, who were raised on hip-hop and largely associate rock music with their parents.

The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival will be headlined by Childish Gambino, Tame Impala and Ariana Grande in 2019. Artists like Khalid, Zedd, Kid Cudi, Janelle Monae, Aphex Twin, Solange, Dillon, Blood Orange and the 1975 will be joining them at the music festival which is held over two weekends in April. Kanye West was in negotiations for the festival but couldn’t agree on how to stage his show. He wanted the producers to change the size and shape of the stage for his planned performance but they refused.

Some of the biggest names headlined the festival in recent years including Guns ‘N’ Roses, Lady Gaga and Bjork who headlined the festival twice. This year, Ariana Grande will headline and make history in two ways. She is not only the fourth ever female headliner at the festival but being only 25, she is the youngest ever headliner in the festival’s history.

Beyonce set high standards last year and a lot of performers now feel pressure to live up to the hype. Her performance was magnificent and they Jay Z joined her on stage as well as Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams. Reportedly, quarter of a million people visited Coachella last year so we can’t wait the festival season to be opened in spring. Coachella takes place from 12 to 14 April and from 19 to 21 April in Indio, California so hurry up and buy your tickets on time.
