We’re headed to Indio – the line-up for Coachella 2023 has been revealed, with Bad Bunny, BLACKPINK and Frank Ocean as headliners. Calvin Harris is at the end of the list, under the title “Returning to the Desert”, meaning he has not yet been given a day but is still receiving top acknowledgement.
This year’s festival will be on the weekends of April 14-16 and April 21-23, which is the first time in recent memory that the event will not be held on Easter Sunday (which is on April 9th this year).
The line-up offers an array of talent in various genres, as usual, with Gorillaz, The Chemical Brothers, Blondie, Becky G, Burna Boy, Rosalía, Charlie XCX, Labrinth, boygenius, Underworld and many more. Metro Boomin, Pusha T, Rae Sremmurd and Yung Lean are some of the rap artists that will be performing.
Frank Ocean is still in the bill, even though he was initially planned for the 2020 edition, which was cancelled due to the pandemic, and then again for 2022 but was left out. He then had a rare early announcement from the festival for his return in 2023 – and here he is.
Bad Bunny and BLACKPINK are the main headliners, with the latter being the first K-pop group to ever headline the festival. They had first been featured in 2019, making them the first all-female K-pop act to be included in the line-up. The immense popularity of K-pop is well-demonstrated by this fact.
