Bad Bunny, Blackpink and Frank Ocean will headline the 2023 Coachella festival, promoter Goldenvoice announced Tuesday.
Ocean was originally scheduled to perform at the 2020 installment of the festival, which was announced in January of that year and ultimately postponed four times due to the pandemic; Ocean announced in 2021 that he was moving his slot to this year. Other scheduled 2020 headliners were Rage Against the Machine and Travis Scott.
The 22nd installment of the festival took place on the weekends of April 14–16 and April 21–23 at his home at the Empire Polo Grounds in Indio, California.
Last year’s headliners were Harry Styles, Billie Eilish, and a tag-team set from The Weeknd and Swedish House Mafia, with the latter performance replacing one from Kanye West, who pulled out just days before the festival’s first weekend. Organizers gave themselves a backup in anticipation of that development — West pulled out of a previously planned headlining appearance days before the lineup was announced in 2019 — by listing Swedish House Mafia on the official lineup poster, with their name in headliner form font but in an unspecified slot, shortly after West officially canceled. The weekend was filled. The 2022 lineup included high-profile sets from Doja Cat, Lil Baby, Phoebe Bridgers, Megan Thee Stallion, 21 Savage and more.
Coachella is the largest music festival in North America and has already sold over 125,000 tickets per day
