    After much rumormongering, Prince has finally confirmed his last-minute involvement in Coachella. The funk/R&B legend will headline Saturday, April 26, in his first-ever U.S festival appearance.

    "In this year of a lot of festivals, we think we’ve dug pretty deep," Coachella promoter Paul Tollett told Billboard.com. "We're in our ninth year, and this is a really great addition to the whole story. It's exciting to add another artist into the mix that hasn't played festivals."

    Prince isn't the only final hour addition to this year's fest. A rare stateside set from Aphex Twin was announced last month along with such acts as Serj Tankian, Kate Nash and Goldfrapp.
