Coachella 2019 Headlined by Childish Gambino and Ariana Grande

Monday, 07 Jan, 2019

Coachella takes place at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California and runs over two weekends, April 12-14 and April 19-21.

The 2019 Coachella lineup is here. Not only will she be the fourth female artist to headline the festival, but she will also be the youngest female performer in Coachella's 20-year history, Glamour notes.

Ariana Grande has released her hit 2018 single "thank u, next" on vinyl.

The announcement comes just hours after reports that Kanye West will not be performing at the event due to failed negotiations about the stage.

Moreover, the situation between Kanye West and Ariana Grande became somewhat personal when she made fun of his beef with Toronto rapper, Drake, on Twitter.

Grande's appearance at the festival comes on the heels of Beyonce headlining a year ago alongside The Weeknd and Eminem.

Childish Gambino, too, had quite the year in 2018, and it's hard to believe that this year's Coachella will mark almost a year since his Grammy-nominated (and by April, potentially Grammy-winning) "This Is America" dropped.

Festival tickets go on sale on Friday, January 4 at 11am Pacific Standard Time (Saturday January 5 at 6am AEST).

This year, Coachella booked the K-pop girl group Blackpink, promptly causing their fans to melt down on social media.

Throughout the weekend, there'll also be appearances by Janelle Monae, Weezer, Pusha T, BadBadNotGood, Four Tet, J Balvin, Christine & The Queens, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Wiz Khalifa, Mac DeMarco and Charlotte Gainsbourg.
