Frank Ocean, Bad Bunny, and Blackpink will headline the 2023 edition of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, which will be held April 14-16 and 21-23 at Empire Polo Field in Indio, Calif.. Bad Bunny will headline on Friday, with Blackpink on Saturday, and Ocean closing out the festival on Sunday. Ocean was originally scheduled to headline in 2020, but when the 2020 and 2021 installments of the festival were cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Ocean was rescheduled for 2023. The artist has not performed a full concert since 2017 and hasn’t released an album since Blonde and Endless back in 2016.
Friday’s Coachella lineup also features Gorillaz, Burna Boy, the Chemical Brothers, Kaytranada, Blondie, Becky G, Metro Boomin, Pusha T, and Wet Leg, as well as adventurous, jazz-leaning outfits DOMi and JD BECK and the Comet Is Coming.
On Saturday, Rosalia, Eric Prydz, boygenius, the Kid Laroi, Charli XCX, Underworld, Labrinth, and Chromeo round out the bill, alongside more indie-leaning acts like Snail Mail, Marc Rebillet, Hiatus Kayote, Kenny Beats, Ethel Cain, the Linda Lindas, the Breeders, and Horsegirl.
Sunday’s roster is rounded out by Bjork, Kali Uchis, A Boogie, Porter Robinson, Dominic Fike, Jai Paul, Latto, 2manyDJs, Christine and the Queens, Noname, Rae Sremmurd, Weyes Blood, Alex G, Sudan Archives, Momma, and dance veterans Sasha and John Digweed.
Presale for tickets begins Friday, though Coachella announced on Twitter that Weekend 1 tickets were already “very limited … For your best chance at passes, look to Weekend 2.” For information about pre-sale ticket registration for Coachella 2023, visit coachella.com.
