Coachella 2023 Lineup Announced

/ 10:00 AM January 11, 2023

After much speculation and lineup issues, the Coachella lineup 2023 is now finalized. The music festival will take place at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California. It will showcase a variety of headliners with a richly diverse slate.

Coachella Valley, Music, and Arts Festival was originally founded in 1999 by L.A. record store owner Paul Tollett. It is an annual event that continues to bring world-renowned music acts to the Southern California desert region. Coachella was famous for its eclectic lineups – with genres ranging from rock and indie bands to EDM DJs and hip-hop artists. 

Urbano superstar Bad Bunny, K-pop girl group Blackpink, and reclusive R&B icon Frank Ocean will headline the music festival. The live music feast anticipates up to 125,000 fans each of the four days over April 14-16 and April 21-23. Coachella’s 2023 lineup makes history as it will have an entirely nonwhite lineup for the first time in its 22-year history.

Goldenvoice Chief Executive Paul Tollett and AEG initially booked Ocean as a headliner for Coachella 2020. It was the event that Tollett ultimately chose to cancel due to the pandemic.

Although it’s been since 2017 since Ocean performed in LA and a full five years since his last album release, “Blonde,” he stoked excitement recently when he re-released “Blonde” on vinyl. Many believe he will likely debut new material at Coachella in 2023.

Coachella 2023 headliners

Bad Bunny is set to make Coachella history in 2023 as the first Latin artist to headline the festival. It is an incredible milestone for the Puerto Rican singer, songwriter, and rapper. After successfully performing at Coachella in 2018 and 2019, it is clear that he has built a loyal fan base with his unique blend of reggaeton, trap, and Latin pop. His headlining act is a testament to his rising fame in the music industry.


Blackpink will also headline the Coachella 2023 lineup. This event marks the group’s return as a top-billed act following their raucous debut performance in 2019. It also followed after the success of their second album, “Born Pink.” In November, the group sold out two nights at the Banc of California in L.A. Coachella 2023 also marks the first time an Asian act will headline Coachella. 

Other notable artists will perform at the music festival. Some of them include  Bjork, Gorillaz, Rosalia, Kali Uchis, Yung Lean, and Becky G. Festival attendees positively reacted to the Coachella 2023 lineup, emphasizing the strong undercard and breakthrough headliners.

Local artists performing

Furthermore, there are also a few local artists that will perform at the festival. The first night will start with the performance of Desert Cohuila Bird Singers, with members of local indigenous communities. On Saturdays, L.A. pop-punk Linda Lindas will take centerstage. While local artist DJ Juliet Mendoza will perform early sets on Fridays.

Goldenvoice released additional tickets for both Coachella weekends which start at $499. Even if fans globally attend the music festival, most audiences would still come from nearby regions of Southern California. 

Alongside great music, the music festival also offers refined stage setups, world-class festival food, and elaborate art installations. Although the food lineup wasn’t official yet, it would include local favorites like Kogi BBQ, Playa Provisions, and Guerilla Tacos.
