Coachella 2023 is shaping up to be an unforgettable weekend.
The annual music festival posted its official lineup for this year’s event, and it may be one of the grandest curations in the festival’s history. Puerto Rican superstar Bad Bunny, K-pop queens Blackpink, and elusive R&B star Frank Ocean are all headlining the festival’s two weekends in Indio, California, this April.
Rumors of the lineup first leaked on social media a few days prior to the official announcement, with Ocean already confirmed to headline the fest this year after 2020’s rescheduling due to the initial COVID-19 outbreak. Coachella’s official social media accounts poked fun at the leaks with their cheeky reveal of the lineup writing, “Ugh was stuck in drafts .”
Though Bad Bunny and Blackpink have both previously performed at the music festival, this marks a major moment for both artists. Bad Bunny will be the first Latino headliner for the festival, with Blackpink being the first Korean act (and girl group!) to headline as well. Ocean’s return to the stage seems to all but confirm that new music—his first since 2016’s Blonde—is on the way as well.
Other acts joining the three in Coachella Valley include Spanish sensation Rosalía, Colombian songstress Kali Uchis, Gorillaz, Burna Boy, Doechii, Kaytranada, and Björk. See the full lineup below. Tickets for presale are available this Friday online at coachella.com. Per the festival’s note on its official post, the first weekend is already almost sold out.
