The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival released their 2016 lineup and it features two of the biggest reunions in recent memory. Not coming as a surprise to many, as it was previously reported by a number of outlets, Guns N' Roses will be headlining both Saturday nights of the festival, while LCD Soundsystem will be headlining the two Friday nights. Calvin Harris is set to cap off the festivities on the main stage for the Sunday concerts.
Tickets go onsale at 2 PM Eastern Time/11 AM Pacific Time, Wednesday, January 6, 2016. (Update: Passes sold out in an hour.) The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival will be taking place, as it does every year, at the Empire Polo Grounds in Indio, California from April 15-17 and April 22-24.
Other big names bringing their talents to Indio include Ellie Goulding, Sufjan Stevens, M83, Ice Cube, Chvrches, Major Lazer, Beach House, Sia, Lush, Deerhunter, Courtney Barnett, Vince Staples and The Chainsmokers, as well as a slew of other well-known acts. Coachella is the first major festival of the year and should give everyone a good idea on what to expect from 2016, both with the festival circuit and upcoming new releases. With all of the amazing talent promised at Coachella, it looks as if 2016 is going to be another incredible year for music. See the full lineup below.
For those who just can't wait to get into the spirit of the festival, there is already a fan-generated Spotify playlist to warm up your ears.
