Coachella 2019: lineup predictions, dates and news
Coachella is set to return for its 20th anniversary edition in 2019 - and tickets are available now.
The Californian music showcase has already announced dates for the upcoming event and there’s a lot of online chat about HUGE acts who might be performing.
Here’s everything we know so far about Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival 2019.
Coachella 2019 dates
So one thing we know for certain is the dates for Coachella 2019.
Organisers announced that the festival - at Indio’s Empire Polo Club - will be held over two weekends in 2019:
- April 12-14 and
- April 19-21
Advanced Sale Passes are no longer available. But fans that miss out use StubHub to buy and sell tickets to in-demand events like Coachella.
Who’s playing Coachella 2019?
Organisers don’t typically announce the Coachella lineup until January.
The annual event always attracts the biggest live acts and 2019 will likely be no exception - especially as it’s Coachella’s 20th anniversary.
Last year saw some amazing performers take to the stage, with Eminem, Beyoncé and The Weeknd headlining the show over two incredible weekends.
There are no solid rumours yet, but Coachella fans have taken to online forums to reveal their wish lists and predictions.
A lot of fans are suggesting Justin Timberlake could perform. But after touring extensively in 2018 and playing the Super Bowl, we’d say it’s best not to hold your breath on that one.
Some say Black Eyed Peas are a contender to headline Coachella in 2019. With a UK and European tour in 2018 and a new album on the way, Will.i.am, Taboo and apl.de.ap could easily take a top spot - and maybe even pull a Beyoncé by inviting Fergie along (the ‘Single Ladies’ singer surprised audiences with a Destiny’s Child reunion in 2018).
Daft Punk are well overdue a comeback and Coachella would be the perfect platform to make it on. The electro dance duo have long been rumoured to tour again and there were whispers they would appear last year.
Pop heroines the Spice Girls have announced they’ll be performing live in 2019, but haven’t said exactly when. A Coachella headline slot would certainly create some buzz around a world tour (as if they needed it).
And despite confirming he would be retiring from music in 2018, Childish Gambino had massive success with ‘This Is America’ this summer so it's possible he'd be tempted to hold off on those plans if Coachella offered him space on their poster.
What’s new for Coachella 2019?
Coachella will be offering a new upgrade for car camping in 2019.
The premium option gets you a lot closer to the festival entrance and also entitles you to priority access.
