As Expected, Rage Against The Machine, Frank Ocean, And Travis Scott Will Headline Coachella This Year
It’s that time of year again. Time for hipsters with lots of disposable income and the influencers who tell them what to buy to fly and drive out to the desert of Southern California where they can listen to bands they’ve mostly never heard of while taking pictures in front of that got-damn Ferris wheel. Yes, the Coachella lineup has been announced. So provided there is no World War III draft to interrupt it, Coachella is coming!
Pitchfork says that the full Coachella lineup has been revealed, and it was previously leaked that Rage Against The Machine, Frank Ocean, and Travis Scott will headline. That has turned out to be true. The rest of the lineup, which will perform for two weekends in April, has been released and also includes: 21 Savage, Danny Elfman, Thom Yorke, Ari Lennox, Big Sean, Banda MS, Marina, BIGBANG, Calvin Harris, Carly Rae Jepsen, Cashmere Cat, Charli XCX, City Girls, DaBaby, Disclosure, Fatboy Slim, FKA twigs, Friendly Fires, Kim Petras, Lana Del Rey, Lil Nas X, Megan Thee Stallion, Pabllo Vittar (good for you Pabllo!), Summer Walker, and Swae Lee. And I just went through the list and deleted the people who I didn’t know. Which is most–I’m not in-the-know of bands. Neither are most of the people who go to Coachella, but I’m honest about it. Pitchfork says there’s also a rumor My Chemical Romance will make another reunion appearance but they aren’t listed. Here’s the full lineup:

I don’t know guys… for some reason festivals just don’t hit the same post-Fyre Festival. That shit was such a 100% complete hot disaster that now everything that just works successfully seems not as interesting. Where is the stage crashing down because it’s not finished being built? Where are the pictures of shitty sandwich lunches? I want pictures of awful living tents with wet mattresses. Where’s the comedy? The theatre?! The jail time?! If nothing goes wrong, this is just a bunch of rich folk doing drugs and having fun: who cares about that?
