Well, this is big news for the desert festival that helped invent the idea of music festivals as events! Beyonce herself will headline the second day of Coachella in 2017. In case you missed the incredible Formation tour which we considered to be the most important live music event of 2016 — there’s still time to get your fill of Queen Bey in the new year. Along with Beyonce, the festival also landed Radiohead and Kendrick for the other two top headliner spots.

Beyonce has traditionally showed up at Coachella for the past couple years to have a really good time as she watched and dance alongside her sister Solange, but it looks like this year she’s decided to bless the stage herself. This is the first time Beyonce has performed at the festival.
This marks Kendrick Lamar’s first time headlining the festival as well, while Radiohead previously led lineups in 2004 and 2012.
But what are the other lower tier gems for those who are looking to dig a little deeper? Well, Travis Scott will be there, along with Father John Misty, Empire Of The Sun, Bon Iver, Future, Schoolboy Q, Gucci Mane, Lorde, Future Islands, Bonobo, Tory Lanez, Car Seat Headrest, Nao.
For its big-name reunion act, the festival tapped new-wave legends New Order, continuing Coachella’s tradition of featuring iconic groups who have disbanded. Coachella 2017 will definitely put the festival on the map as unmissable once again.
