We are beginning a new year, and for many of us living in the U.S, 2020 have already got our sights on April with the official Coachella 2020 lineup that was announced and is included two Brazilian superstars: Anitta and Pablo Vittar – they will performing on Saturdays 11 and 19 respectively with Travis Scott as the headliner.
There are a plethora of musical acts waiting to wow festival attendees over two weekends in mid-April. Per the official release on the lineup, Coachella weekend one (April 10-12) is already sold out thanks to advance sales, but you can sign up for for the weekend two (April 17-19) ticket pre-sale happening now – the rest of the weekend two tickets will be available to buy starting at 3 pm (pacific time) Monday, January 6, 2020.
On Thursday night of January 2nd Coachella rumors and speculation were put to rest when the festival 2020 line up was revealed in full. with Travis Scott, Frank Ocean and the band Rage Against the Machine as the main headliners and what looks like a particularly impressive bill when the double-weekend festival kicks off in Indio, California on Friday, April 10th.
We can mention as a highlight the fact that K-pop legends BIGBANG will reunite at Coachella after a hiatus. Last time BIGBANG were working as a group was back in March 2018 with the release of their single, “Flower Road.”
Other big, exciting acts coming to the festival include Lana Del Rey, Run the Jewels, Liz Uzi Vert, Calvin Harris, FKA Twigs, 21 Savage, Lil Nas X, Charli XCX, and Summer Walker. Also, Megan Three Stallion and Da Baby will make their Coachella debuts this year. What can be controversial and which should resonate in posts and comments in social media is the fact that among the three main headliners there are no women.
After night-capping stints by Lady Gaga, Beyonce and Ariana Grande in consecutive years, Coachella will not have any women headlining for the first time since 2016. This is especially noticeable because Lana Del Rey who’s played the festival in the past and happens to be the living embodiment of its vibe – is listed in a runner-up slot on the 2020 poster. Will Lana ever be a Coachella headliner? Maybe; hopefully. It won’t be in 2020, though.
