And, after months of rumors and speculations, we finally have the confirmation that Donald Glover a.k.a. Childish Gambino will be headlining the annual event.
There have also been speculations that Kanye West would be performing at Coachella. According to a TMZ report, Ye, who’s known for his elaborate stages, passed when the organizers wouldn’t allow the festival’s 60×40 foot stage “to be altered or removed” for his performance and negotiations fell apart.
Korean girl group BLACKPINK made history as the first female K-Pop act to perform at Coachella. Other Korean bands performing at the festival are HYUKOH and Jambinai.
Fans were also surprised to see one actor’s name on the list – Idris Elba, with some wondering if it was a band using the actor’s name. Nope, he’s the real deal. And he’s about to drop some beats during his set.
ICYMI, 2018’s Sexiest Man Alive is also a DJ and has been known to bust out some pretty cool beats in Atlanta and New York, and all the way from Glastonbury to Ibiza. This will be his first time performing at Coachella though.
Whose performance are you most excited to see?
